Echinacea itself acts to modulate the immune system of the body, inhibits the enzyme hyaluronidase, which functions to prevent the spread of infection, inhibited the enzyme siklooksigenase and lipooksigenase as a bitter taste, and activate fibroblasts which one of its functions is to accelerate wound healing.


This plant is typical of Indonesia. It is, among other things, the flavonoid quercetin, astragalin, isoquercetrin, qeurcetrin and routine. DEXA Medica is a manufacturer who raised this plant to be a bio-pharmacy.

While the syrup each ml of Echinacea contains 250 mg, zinc 5 mg. Other variants namely Imboost force composition is equal to imboost, but there is an additional one that is black elderberry 400 mg in the form of sediaannya capsules and syrup.

Indications: supportive therapy to stimulate the immune system against infections of acute, chronic, or recurrent respiratory tract infections and especially the genitalia such as candidiasis and vaginitis.

Which is better, Echinacea or meniran?

Both good, but need to dinggat that the material should not be Echinace/supplements for pregnant women (the library ekinase must not be for pregnant women). At the conclusion of the written part:

In conclusion it should be stressed that pharmaceuticals containing Echinacea purpurea may influence fetal angiogenesis in experimental murine model and without further studies should not be recommended for pregnant women.

What about the price?

Indeed it could be said that drugs are expensive. Stimuno price is Rp 22,000 per 10 capsules. While imbost Rp 35,000 per 10 tablets. While Fituno Rp 60,000 per 30 caplets. When the calculated price of around Usd 2000-3000/tab.

In fact there are pros and cons associated immunostimulant. Dr. Iwan in his website says Imboost and the like is actually not a cure and not effect conferring.

Even from a paper in the journal there is controversy related kefektifan Echinacea against the immune system. But maybe the explanation Imboost and the like could work on improving imunoglobulin (antibodies) in the condition of the body that are not so severe. At the moment the conditions are drop, can be triggered the formation of imunoglobulin. But if you've been sick, sore e.g DB (dengue fever), these drugs did not effect conferring. Hopefully can answer confusion of readers.
