Echinacea was used by many Native American populations throughout the United States. This widespread use was adopted by the Eclectic physicians in the U.S. and its use was documented in medical texts until 1947. Specifically, Echinacea angustifoliawas by far the most popular species prescribed by Eclectic physicians. A German pharmaceutical manufacturer importedEchinacea purpurea to Germany in the 1930's, and since then, German and American scientists have been researching the clinical usefulness of the herb with an emphasis on supporting the immune system. This herb is popular both in Europe and in the US.
Since the era of the Eclectics, herbalists have known that all good quality Echinacea products cause a mild tingling sensation in the mouth. This is due to the alkylamides, which are recognized for their biological effect on the immune system.
As a result of many clinical trials that were done in the 1990's, Echinacea sales account for approximately 10% of the dietary supplement market. Many clinical trials are still being conducted today.
