Infection Reducing EGS
Infection Reducing EGS is suggested as support for the Immune System. Infection Reducing EGS is a combination of Echinacea and Goldenseal. Effective at supporting and promoting short-term immune functions.
Centuries ago, Native Americans collected the root of the Purple Coneflower, Echinacea. Several species of Echinacea were collected and cherished by at least 14 tribes. This herb was a favorite folk medicine wherever it grew. Currently, Echinacea has been the subject of more than 350 scientific studies. In laboratory testing, Echinacea increases the immune system’s function in a few ways. Consequently, Echinacea helps Cold, Yeast and Ear infections
Goldenseal is a potent botanical among the Cherokee tribe. Goldenseal’s potent properties are primarily due to the alkaloids berberine, hydrastine and canadine. These phytochemical alkaloids produce a strong astringent effect on mucous membranes, reduce inflammation and have antiseptic effects. One of Goldenseal’s alkaloids was at one time an official drug; hydrastine was entered in the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) from 1905-1926, and was classified as a hemostatic (an agent which stops hemorrhage).
Like Echinacea, Goldenseal is also able to help fight infection by increasing the production of antigen?specific Immunoglobulins. Other research has demonstrated Goldenseal’s antibacterial activity. If you’re going to try Goldenseal supplementation, look for a product that is standardized for12% of its active alkaloids.
Urinary tract infections
In addition, Goldenseal root and other plants containing the alkaloid berberine (such as Oregon grape) may help in the treatment of urinary tract infections. The reason for this is that berberine helps inhibit bacteria from adhering to the wall of the urinary bladder. Goldenseal is not a substitute for antibiotic treatment during an acute UTI.
Echinacea & Goldenseal together
Infection Reducing EGS have immunomodulatory effects. Echinacea and Goldenseal works differently to enhance immune function. Their concurrent use is not redundant. In fact, the Infection Reducing EGS combination formula might be expected to provide a greater overall immune response than just using one herb alone.
