Advocates of herbal remedies just won a victory over skeptics. A review of
more than a dozen studies found evidence that echinacea can reduce your risk
of catching a cold by 58% — and if you do catch one, it can reduce your recovery
time by 1.4 days.
The study, published in the journalThe Lancet Infectious Diseases,is
bound to heat up the controversy over echinacea, a popular herb sold in many
drugstores and natural foods stores. While some doubt the effectiveness of herbal
remedies, which are not regulated by the U.S. FDA, the study researchers came
to the conclusion that "published evidence supports echinacea's benefit
in decreasing the incidence and duration of the common cold." They added,
however, that more study of echinacea's effects on the body needs to be done.
For now, consider echinacea one of many options available to help prevent the
common colds that strike even in the summer months. (On medication? Consult
your doctor first about possible interactions.) Find out more about how to stave
off the sniffles.
