Immune health and wellness are now more important than ever! When you choose plants, you equip your body with what it needs to protect yourself from disease. Plants not only help to actively quell inflammation (meat and dairy fuel it), but they also help regulate your immune system, too!
With cold and flu season upon us, I am proud to introduce our new Immune Syrups – Elderberry & Sleep and Cough & Mucus. Both syrups contain Black Elderberry, Vitamin C and Zinc, which promote immune support. Why do I love Black Elderberry so much? Because it works! Black Elderberry is known to reduce colds, sinus infections and helps to prevent the flu. Historically, its use dates all the way back to ancient Egypt, and it’s one of the only herbal remedies that has been used in Asian, European and Native American medicine. These civilizations used it for centuries for immune health! But like other herbs I love – there is modern science backing Black Elderberry too. The syrups are available in both Adult and Kid formulas (recommended for children ages 4 and older) to help the entire family feel their best.
Our new Elderberry & Sleep Syrup combines organic bedtime herbs to promote sleep with our Elderberry Syrup which provides immune support. This syrup is really cool, because we all know how frustrating it is when we (or especially our kids) can’t sleep, and we need it the most during immune challenges. Great sleep is so important to let the body, brain and spirit heal. We combined Black Elderberry with Organic Lemon Balm, Valerian and Chamomile, which helps calm the nerves, promote relaxation and reduce anxiety, therefore promoting good sleep. Sufficient sleep is something we all need in order to recharge our batteries and most certainly when we are fighting immune challenges.
Our new Cough & Mucus Syrup soothes everyday throat irritations while helping to clear mucus when coughing. It is not full of honey or other sugary syrups that coat your throat, but don’t really bring lasting relief. I don’t want sugar in my body when I am trying to heal, it is not helpful. Our recipe combines organic peppermint oil with organic rosemary leaf extract to soothe, and organic tapioca fiber syrup which coats. Along with Organic Elderberry, Echinacea, Rosemary, Acerola Cherry and Guava for added immune system support, as well as Organic Ivy Leaf to help loosen and clear mucus. Organic Ivy Leaf, a traditional herb used in Asia and Europe for centuries has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that act as an expectorant for coughs and helps reduce inflammation.
