There are three species of echinacea  E. purpurea, E. angustifolia, and E. pallida. Supplements are made from the above-ground herb (aerial) and/or root portions depending upon the species used. Like many other herbal remedies, it is not clearly understood which of echinacea's many chemical components are responsible for its effects. However, the various species of echinacea have been characterized as possessing certain marker compounds of the chemical class called "phenols. " For example, cichoric and caftaric acids are phenols found within both the aerial and root portions of E. purpurea, while echinacoside is a phenol found in higher levels specifically within E. angustifolia and E. pallida roots. These phenols serve as markers to evaluate the quality of echinacea in a product. Other constituents that may be important include alkamides and polysaccharides
