Echinacea Purpurea Root Extract Supplement

Immune System Support

Dee Cee Formula 596 is an echinacea purpurea root extract supplement that helps support the immune system. Echinacea purpurea root is one of the three medicinal forms of Echinacea.

For quite some time Echinacea was used for infections however, from the 1930s-1970s antibiotic use resulted in a steep decrease in Echinacea use. Then, due to disillusionment with the medical establishment in the 1980s, herbal medicine reemerged as an alternative and led to renewed awareness in Echinacea's benefits.

There are several double-blind, placebo-controlled studies that help to support the theory that Echinacea prevents or hastens the duration of a cold. In the first study, pressed juice of the Echinacea purpurea herb shortened the duration of the common cold. The study included 120 Swedish volunteers with symptoms of a cold. The volunteers also had at least three respiratory infections within the prior six months. Researchers counted the number of patients whose initial cold symptoms turned into a real cold, which was defined as a full upper respiratory infection. They also counted the number of days it took for each real cold to improve. Of the Echinacea treated patients, 24 of 60, or 40 percent, developed a real cold compared with 36 of 60, or 60 percent, who received placebo. The median time for a real cold to improve was four days for the Echinacea group vs. eight for those taking placebo. The conclusion was that the herbal extract of Echinacea purpurea, taken at initially high doses, prevents a real cold from developing or shortens the duration of those that do. However, in another study, extracts of Echinacea purpurea root and Echinacea angustifolia, was less conclusive. The subjects in this study were 302 healthy German volunteers who took one of the two Echinacea extracts or a placebo for 12 weeks to evaluate its effectiveness at preventing colds. Both Echinacea groups had a 10 to 20 percent decreased incidence of upper respiratory infections compared to those taking placebo. However, according to the authors, these differences were not statistically significant and they thought a larger study was needed.
