Three species of the medicinal plant Echinacea are of interest for helping the immune system. They are Echinacea angustifolia, Echinacea purpurea, and Echinacea pallida. For hundreds of years, Echinacea angustifolia has been used by Native Americans as a remedy for numerous conditions including: eye conditions, snake bites, insect stings, infected wounds, eczema, enlarged glands, mumps, and rabies.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.
Elderberry has the ability to improve and sustain the immune & respiratory systems. Elderberry can be used to help prevent colds and flu by boosting the immune system when taken at the first indication of a cold or flu. This will help to reduce the period of the infection down to one or two days in some individuals. Elderberry helps the nutritional needs of the immune system by adding additional amounts of vitamin C, fruit acids and traces of essential oils and anthocyanin pigments (Anthocyanins are naturally occurring compounds that give color to fruits, vegetables, and plants. They are extensively distributed among flowers, fruits, and vegetables and belong to a group of plant compounds called flavonoids. Flavonoids are a subclass of plant polyphenols which may have antioxidant properties and are being investigated for their anticancer potential). The antibiotic, antiviral and antibacterial properties found in Elderberry also help to stimulate the skin, kidneys and lymphatic system. The flavonoids, including quercetin, are believed to account for the therapeutic effects of the Elderberry flowers and berries. A study in humans revealed that an extract of Elderberries is an effective treatment for influenza.

Vitamin C deficiency can lead to several symptoms and conditions including: dry and splitting hair; inflammation of the gums and bleeding gums; rough, dry, scaly skin; decreased wound healing, easy bruising; nosebleeds; weakened enamel of the teeth; swollen and painful joints; anemia; decreased ability to ward off infection; and, possibly, weight gain because of slowed metabolic rate and energy expenditure.
When there is a severe deficiency of vitamin C, scurvy results. Since our body can not manufacture its own vitamin C and cant store it, it is imperative that you supplement with vitamin C or consume foods which contain enough vitamin C.
Many people have heard about the importance of taking zinc when you feel a cold coming on. The immune system is unfavorably affected by even a modest amount of zinc deficiency. In fact, severe zinc deficiency depresses immune function. Zinc is required for the development and activation of a type of white blood cell called T-lymphocytes that helps fight infection. When zinc supplements are given to persons with low zinc levels, the numbers of T-cell lymphocytes in the blood will increase and the capacity of lymphocytes to fight infection improves.
