Fortunately Mother Nature has provided us with a perfect way of keeping the whole family naturally happy and healthy. I have formulated a recipe for an Immune Support tonic that is not only delicious, but it’s very powerful ingredients combine to support and uplift the immune system. The primary ingredient is the pleasant tasting Eldeberry, which is why children of all ages love this tonic so it’s perfect for the whole family. Everyone should have a large bottle of this in the medicine cabinet, instead of most of the other stuff in there
The Elderberry - No longer just a folk remedy or tasty berry to add to fruit salads, the humble elderberry has been studied by the medical establishments due to it’s incredible immune boosting abilities. Elderberries contain a unique protein that helps stimulate communication and regulate immune responses. They also contain large amounts of antioxidents which prevent cel damage. They have been used for thousands of years to treat everything from vision impairments, colds and flu, blood pressure, viral infections, diarrhea, and doctors in Israel are using them to treat cancer and AIDS.
Cloves – Cloves act as an expectorant, which help in lowering the severity of coughs by producing more phlegm. Cloves also contain a powerful essential oil known as eugenol, which can be used topically as a dental antiseptic as well as tannins which act like painkillers.
Ginger – The use of ginger to treat a wide range of ailments goes back to ancient times. It has very powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial propoerties.
Rooibos – Used as a healing tea for thousands of years in South Africa (where it’s grown), Rooibos has seen a surge on the global market due to its delicate sweet flavor and powerful anti-oxidant benefits. It is used as an anti-spasmodic agent, to relieve stomach cramps and colic in infants and children.
Cinnamon – In ancient chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, cinnamon was used for colds, flatulence, nausea, diarrhea, and painful menstrual periods. It's also believed to improve energy, vitality, and circulation which in turn stimulate immune response.
Echinacea - Echinacea extract can be used for treating the onset of a sore throat and is especially beneficial if taken at the first signs of flu and cold symptoms.
Rosemary - This popular herb contains a potent antioxidant, rosmarinic acid which stimulates the central nervous system and improves circulation. It can also be used topically to treat many arthritis related issues.
Astragalus Root – The use of Astragalus root as a medication goes back at least 2000 years. Astragalus stimultaes the production of interferon, a mixture of proteins that our body makes in response to viral infections of the respiratory tract and heart.
This recipe makes about 16 ounces.
