Echinacea Liquid Capsules

It is shown to stimulate phagocytosis by neutrophils and can increase WBC production. While it does not kill microbes in and of itself, it re-establishes the innate immune response by stimulating natural killer cell action and inducing cytokine production. It also inhibits prostaglandin production, increases tumor necrosis factor and nitric oxide, and it binds strongly to CB2 receptors in immune tissue.

These constituents have been well-researched and shown to influence the following physiological actions, including:
