100% Organic Ingredients:
Ginger root is a warming herb and promotes the production of saliva, bile, and other gastric secretions. Part of its benefit is that it increases peristalsis, the wavelike muscle contractions that move food through your intestines. It is commonly used for nausea, flatulence, morning sickness, motion sickness, and indigestion. Use caution if pregnant, have gallstones, or taking medicines to reduce blood clotting.
Echinacea is most commonly used to boost the immune system against colds, the flu, and sore throats. This herb is best taken at the onset of symptoms. Echinacea works by stimulating your body to produce the white blood cells needed to stave off infection. It can also be applied externally to your skin. Use caution if you are allergic to members of the Asteraceae family (daisies, chrysanthemums, ragweed). This herb is for short-term use and should not be taken more than 10 days consecutively.
Elderberry is another very popular herb for supporting your immune system. Commonly used for respiratory illnesses, this herb has anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antioxidant properties. This berry helps to reduce congestion and stimulates sweating. Because of the compounds found in elderberries, you want to make this tea hot in order to cook the berries to enhance both the benefits of the berries and their taste.
