Formulated as an offensive strategy to boost the immune system and fight back when infirmity strikes, this tincture is a combination of immune-boosting herbs which helps to stave off or reduce the duration/severity of illness.
Tincture should be taken at the first signs of illness and continued until symptoms subside. It is not intended as a preventative nor meant for long term use.
Elderberries are a natural anti-inflammatory and are particularly high in flavonoids (antioxidants) which are known to help prevent damage to the body’s cells and boost the immune system. They’re also high in vitamin A and Vitamin C, potassium, iron, vitamin B6, fiber, and betacarotene.
Echinacea is best known for its beneficial effects on the immune system. It is an effective blood purifier, with the ability to stimulate the immune system, increasing white blood cells and the activity of T-cells, which fight off infection. This may lead to a faster recovery from illness.
Calendula flowers are antiviral, antibiotic, and anti-inflammatory. They are rich in antioxidants and carotenoids to help the body fight bacterial infections and viruses.
Rosehips are one of the highest plant sources of vitamin C. They also contain vitamins A and B and the antioxidant lycopene. Properties include anti-inflammatory, immune-boosting, and anti-oxidant, making them beneficial for treating colds and flu.
Astragalus Root is categorized as an adaptogen and immunomodulator and has traditionally been used in combination with other antiviral and antibacterial herbs to boost the immune system and prevent/lessen the severity of colds and flu. Other properties include anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory.
Grape Brandy has been utilized for hundreds of years as a remedy for the cold and/or flu. It is believed to have other potentially beneficial health effects, as well. It contains antibacterial properties, thins phlegm, has relaxing qualities that may curb an overactive cough, may improved antibody response, and can even provide some pain relief to help with a sore throat or muscle aches.
