Huge fan of using echinacea in my treatment (gentle antifungal, immune-booster, gentle lymph cleanser)
…but im also a huge fan of coffee and green tea. With this said, know that: Caffeine interacts with ECHINACEA
The body breaks down caffeine to get rid of it. Echinacea might decrease how quickly the body breaks down caffeine. Taking echinacea along with caffeine might cause too much caffeine in the bloodstream and increase the risk of side effects. Common side effects include jitteriness, headache, and fast heartbeat.
