Tulsi, Elder Blossoms, Echinacea, Astragalus, Spearmint
Approximately 8-10 servings per ounce.
Tulsi Leaves (Ocimum sanctum)
Also known as holy basil, tulsi is a sacred plant in the Hindu religion. In Sanskrit, tulsi means “beyond compare.” It is immunomodulating, so it helps bring the immune system back into balance. It is also an antiviral that helps ward off infections and a nervine, so it fosters feelings of being calm and grounded while allowing the mind and body better handle stress.
Elder Blossoms (Sambucus nigra)
Elder blossoms are an essential antiviral herb that is well-suited to work against flu viruses. They are also antimicrobial, so they kill or inhibit the growth of harmful microorganisms in the body.
Echinacea Leaves (Echinacea purpurea)
This detoxifying and immune-stimulating herb is the gold standard for naturally eliminating cold, flu, and upper respiratory infections while supporting the healing process. Echinacea is used by western herbalists to detoxify organ systems (especially the lymphatic system), lower blood glucose levels and blood pressure, and help with tooth and gum disease.
Astragalus Root (Astragalus membranaceus)
Astragalus calms an overactive immune system and provides an immune boost when the body needs it. It is safe to take over a more extended period because it brings the immune systems back into balance.
Spearmint Leaves (Mentha spicata)
Spearmint is calming and soothing, and particularly suitable for children. It’s included in this blend to harmonize flavors.
