One way to reap the many benefits of echinacea is to enjoy a cup of warm tea. Echinacea tea (which may contain one or more varieties of the herb) contains many vitamins and minerals including vitamins A, B-complex and E along with magnesium, calcium, iron, potassium and sodium.
In addition, the tea contains polysaccharides – located in the above-ground parts of the plant that are responsible for triggering the immune system and glycoproteins, alkamides, volatile oils and flavonoids that are helpful therapeutic compounds found in the roots.
Here are just a few of the many known benefits of drinking a cup of warm echinacea tea daily:
Boost your immune system: Echinacea tea activates T-cell renewal and helps with the production of antibodies and interferon, known for blocking viral infections.
Fight off the common cold: Studies show that drinking echinacea tea can shorten the duration of a normal cold by 1.4 days on average. The moment you feel a cold or flu approaching, have a cup of tea and continue to enjoy a cup daily until the symptoms subside. For even greater preventative benefits, start drinking a cup of tea daily before cold season hits.
Reduce symptoms of bronchial infection and laryngitis: If you have come down with a bronchial infection or laryngitis, try a few cups of echinacea tea daily to alleviate symptoms and speed recovery. Echinacea tea will help reduce inflammation and fight bacteria.
Increase the therapeutic value of your tea by adding some cinnamon and ginger. Your voice will be strengthened in no time. Try making a tea, steep some ginger root and cinnamon. Allow the tea to cool and pour into a spray bottle. Shake and spray the tea into your mouth for relief when needed.
