Medicinal Elderberry Tonic (200ml)
Dr Sarah Lantz, of Temptress Apothecary, and Cassie Hower, of Plants + Passion, have collaborated with Mother Nature to bring you this Certified Organic, tasty, immune boosting, spiced elderberry tonic to support you and your family through winter.
This ancient tonic may offer relief from the symptoms of influenza, colds, coughs, sore throat, headache and fevers. Elderberries contain flavonoids including anthocyanins, quercetin and rutin and have been shown to support the innate immune system against viruses, specifically in the upper respiratory tract, and to reduce symptoms associated with these viruses. The elderberries, combined with well-known immune boosting superhero’s of echinacea, ginger, rosehips, cinnamon and cloves will help to bring the body back into balance sooner. Elderberries have also been shown to reduce inflammation and contain antioxidant properties.
Did you know that elderberries are one of the most used medicinal plants worldwide? They’ve been used throughout history in many different cultures at the first signs of respiratory illness. Traditionally, and even today, elderberry syrup and tonic is a remedy made at home by carers and medicine women. Scientific research has shown that the compounds found in elderberries bind to viruses before they can penetrate the cells whilst at the same time stimulating an immune response. You’ll find compounds from elderberries in over the counter natural cold and flu medicines but when the whole berries are used a synergistic effect occurs and the plant medicine is able to offer our bodies their full gifts for healing. Doesn’t that sound so heart-warming and comforting!
