Studies Puts Echinacea in Favorable Light

February 1, 2008: 12:00 AM EST
Consuming echinacea can reduce the chances of catching common colds by 58 percent, United States scientists said after reviewing 14 studies. The review, published in the Lancet, also found that echinacea (Echinacea purpurea) can lessen the duration of colds by 1.5 days. Negative media coverage has lead to a fall in sales of Echinacea recently, but the latest study, by the University of Connecticut School of Pharmacy, found a majority of studies demonstrated the effectiveness of echinacea in fighting colds.
