Echinacea with Thyme Answers
Q. What are the benefits of Thyme when combined with Echinacea?
A. Echinacea and thyme are two of nature’s best-known infection fighters. Thyme is well known in herbal medicine for its expectorant and cough-relieving properties. Thyme relieves cough by helping break up mucus. It is also used to help relieve the symptoms of bronchitis and other upper respiratory tract infections. ^TOP
Q. Should I take Echinacea with Thyme if I already have a cold?
A. While it is a good idea to take these infection-fighting supplements before a cold sets in, echinacea and thyme can reduce the severity of symptoms and shorten the duration of coughs and colds. At the first sign of possible infection, echinacea can be used to boost the immune system, as it helps your body produce more white blood cells which help fight off viral infections. In this manner, its use is recommended as a preventative natural remedy against viruses. ^TOP
Q. Why does it say "High Potency" on the package?
A. Fowler's provides a superior, liquid form of echinacea, made in Denmark under strict E.U./Canada Regulations and quality standards. The high extract ratio delivers a potency equivalent to 500 mg per 1 mL dose, which results in a significantly lower cost per dose when compared to similar liquid echinacea products. ^TOP
Q. What is the benefit of Fowler's liquid formulation compared to standard capsules?
A. Aside from being easier to swallow than tablets and capsules. There are many other benefits of taking echinacea and thyme in a liquid formulation rather than the standard capsules:
- Faster absorption. Your digestive system can absorb a liquid extract in 1-4 minutes while capsules or tablets can take up to 30 minutes.
- Better bioavailability. The beneficial substances are absorbed into your system more efficiently.
- Longer shelf life. Liquid extracts are generally less affected by heat and humidity than capsules and tablets, thus giving them a longer shelf life.
- Easier to digest. As we age, our bodies don’t digest tablets and capsules as easily. In some cases, pills can pass through our system without being broken down, which is the case especially for people on acid blockers. A liquid formulation is ideal for digestion.
Q. I know Echinacea and Thyme help fight off infections, but are they also good for my digestive health?
A. In herbal medicine, echinacea has been recognized as having a wide range of general health benefits. Thyme has also been traditionally used not only to boost your immune and respiratory systems, but also your digestive system by relieving flatulent dyspepsia and colic (carminative). Thyme contains anti-inflammatory properties that promote good digestion, while reducing gas and bloating. ^TOP
Q. Can I take the product if I am pregnant or nursing?
A. Although echinacea is generally considered safe for pregnant and nursing women, there is not enough data to definitively conclude that there are no risks associated with its use. If you are pregnant and want to take echinacea, you should talk to your doctor first before consuming any type of herbal supplements. ^TOP
