Notes
Although early studies and an early meta-analysis suggested a benefit within the cold, a newer meta-analysis that employing a higher threshold for bias risk for study inclusion didn't find a meaningful effect for upper tract infection generally (the cold being the foremost common infection observed). It's unclear when echinacea could also be most potent, or if certain doses, forms, and populations modify its effects, and a scarcity of latest, well-conducted studies limits further analysis.
The length that one is sick for is merely modestly reduced with garlic supplementation even at higher doses.
