CHAGA ELDERBERRY ECHINACEA ELIXER
A concentrated combination of immune tonics useful in supporting immune function. Elderberry has a long traditional use for the prevention and treatment of colds and flus. Modern research has found that it inhibits replication of viruses, including H1N1 influenza. Chaga is a fungus generally found on birch trees, especially yellow birch. It has been used extensively in Russia for the protection against colds and fevers and for the treatment of inoperable tumors. Modern studies have found chaga to contain a much higher concentration of antioxidants than other well known foods like blueberries and goji berries. It also boasts potent antiviral, anti-inflammatory, blood sugar lowering, and kidney protective properties. Echinacea angustifolia is well known for its immune boosting properties. Additionally, it stimulates lymphatic function and eases the pain of sore throats. As a preventative, ½-1 teaspoon daily. 2-3 teaspoons daily for enhanced support during times of weakened immune function
