Is echinacea as good as glutathione for your immune system?
Echinacea purpurea and Echinacea angustifolia are two species that have been extensively studied for their health effects.
Of these two, Echinacea purpurea has shown to be more effective of the two when taken at the onset of the symptoms of a cold to give your immune system the boost it needs. It is not however, recommended for chronic daily long term usage. So it is not a preventive supplement.
Glutathione is considered preventive when it comes to immune system health. The building blocks for glutathione, such as are found in Immunocal, are recommend to be taken daily on a regular basis to keep your immune system strong and running at peak performance to prevent illness on a regular daily basis.
So echinacea may be good when you are first coming down with something, and glutathione needs to be high in your system on an ongoing daily basis.
Taking Immunocal daily, and adding an extra packet along with some Echinacea purpurea at the first symptoms of a cold would have a synergistic or beneficial effect. You can learn more about glutathione here, and learn more about your immune system here.
