Echinacea can cut risk of colds by 58% - June 29, 2007

New research from American scientists has shown that taking echinacea can reduce the risk of catching a cold by up to 58%.

The scientists, from the University of Connecticut School of Pharmacy, recently reviewed 14 earlier clinical trials to find out how effective echinacea is at preventing and combating cold symptoms. They found that as well as halving the risk of developing a cold, taking echinacea reduced the length of an established cold by 1.4 days on average.
