While echinacea is perhaps best known for its use in preventing and treating the common cold, researchers in Hungary have found that a unique extract of Echinacea angustifolia, used at a specific dosage, effectively relieves anxiety and worry. Clinical tests have found this extract to be as effective as anxiety-reducing prescription medications – without the adverse effects. Joining us to talk about this unique application for a well-known botanical medicine is Dr. Jozsef Haller, lead researcher into the anxiety reducing properties of echinacea. Dr. Haller is the head of the Behavioral Neurobiology Department of the Institute for Experimental Medicine, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, in Budapest, Hungary.
