Alkylamine and caffeic acid derivatives: lipophilic alkylamine can increase the phagocytic capacity of macrophages.
Tissue renewal and anti-infection
Inhibition of hyaluronidase (hyaluronidase) can stimulate the growth of fibroblasts and the synthesis of glucosaminidase, produce corticosterone, and promote the secretion of adrenal cortex hormones. Polysaccharides have an anti-infective effect.
Echinacea and caffeic acid derivatives have weak antibacterial activity.
It can inhibit influenza, herpes, and blistering viruses. The antiviral activity is attributed to the inhibition of hyaluronidase, which can block viral receptors on the cell surface.
