Echinacea Is Effective, Probably Maybe

Have you been taking echinacea to ward of a cold this Spring? If so you're probably doing the right thing. Maybe.

Newsweek is reporting that new research has found that taking echinacea reduces the chances of getting a cold by 31 percent. And if you've already come down with one, the herb will make you feel better a day and a half earlier — may not seem like a lot but, oh the things I could do in a day in a half. With that being said, there are a few issues with this theory. The first is that researchers are not quite sure which of the more than 200 strains of the cold viruses are affected by echinacea, so it may do absolutely nothing for your cold. Also, echinacea has been found to interact with other medications adversely, so be sure to talk to your doctor before taking it.
