If you don't know what Echinacea is, then clearly you've never met my mother. At the tiniest hint of sickness you're supposed to start taking this supplement and like a tiny green army it helps your immune system fight whatever is attacking your body. There are a lot of people that say any sign that it helps is just a placebo effect & a lot of people who say it's a magic pill.
My mom should be the President of the Echinacea Awareness Committee because she will give you a week's supply if you so much as sniffle in front of her. She discovered Echinacea when I was a teenager, and I must say it has worked miracles for me many times. If it's a placebo effect, I'll take it! I have been fighting feeling sick all week and this morning I am almost ready to throw in the towel and accept my sick fate. But I have faith that my Echinacea coupled with its sidekick, Vitamin C, will prevail like superheros!
I guess I'd rather get sick now than in a month! I hope everyone else is avoiding getting sick!
