Description More Information
Results of archeological digs indicate that Native Americans may have used echinacea for more than 400 years to treat infections and wounds and as a general "cure-all." Throughout history people have used echinacea to treat scarlet fever, syphilis, malaria, blood poisoning, and diphtheria. Although this herb was popular during the 18th and 19th centuries, its use began to decline in the United States after the introduction of antibiotics. Echinacea preparations became increasingly popular in Germany throughout the 20th century. In fact, most of the scientific research on echinacea has been conducted in Germany.

Several laboratory and animal studies suggest that echinacea contains active substances that enhance the activity of the immune system, relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and have hormonal, antiviral, and antioxidant effects. For this reason, professional herbalists may recommend echinacea to treat urinary tract infections, vaginal yeast (candida) infections, ear infections (also known as otitis media), athlete's foot, sinusitis, hay fever (also called allergic rhinitis), as well as slow-healing wounds.

Reviewer: Kenny Page from Washington D.C., DC United States  
I get my planting and sprouting seeds here.  I would like to add that I learned of Mypatriotsupply.com on the Alex Jones show.  The tomatoes that I started from seed are about 4 feet tall already!!!!

The Standard of Quality and Excellence May 18, 2014
Reviewer: Darrin Germany from Salisbury, North Carolina  
I have been a fan of MyPatriotSupply for over 3 years, and have ordered numerous seed vaults and packets. The gernination rates for their seeds are astounding.
Basically, if it didn't grow, it wasn't because of the seed.
The fruits and vegetables produced from their heirloom seeds are phenomenal in their quality, size, and tas
