Echinacea is a herb which is considered to have powerful immune boosting properties. Often Echinacea tablets are taken to help with the prevention of colds and flus. Echinacea was commonly taken by the North American Natives for its immune boosting properties. Echinacea is better used before the onset of a cold so that the immune system is ready for combating the flu and cold symptoms. Echinacea has been recently considered unsuitable for children, so always follow the instructions which are provided on the packaging.
