ElderImmune contains the following helpful and immune-boosting ingredients:
Elderberry traditionally has been used for immune support, both as a daily tonic and at the start of an immune challenge. Because of its immune-modulating and antioxidant properties, Elderberry is able to work at the cellular level and provide deep support for overall immune health. By normalizing and promoting the production of cytokines, the immune system is able to maintain balance during those winter months when our bodies need all the plant power they can get.
The constituents contained in the berry specifically promote the health of the upper respiratory system, by supporting a healthy inflammatory response and maintaining the integrity of the mucous membranes, too. It also supports a healthy response to occasional pain in the joints and muscles and supports the integrity of blood vessels, keeping them strong.
Echinacea has been identified as having anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antiviral properties and as an immune-strengthening agent. Studies have shown that taking Echinacea purpurea can reduce a person’s chances of getting a cold by 58% and reduces the length of a cold by 1.4 days. In addition to fighting the cold and flu, Echinacea has been said to help control blood sugar, aid in healthy cell growth, potentially reduce the risk of breast cancer, help manage anxiety and lower blood pressure.
Lavender is mostly known for its nervine properties. It is incredibly relaxing to the nervous system. Just the aroma itself can help reduce stress and anxiety in most people. Studies confirmed it can help with restlessness, nervousness, depression, and insomnia. Lavender has anti-inflammatory properties that can help calm the GI tract and tension headaches. Other potential benefits are lowering blood pressure and heart rate, relieving asthma symptoms, helps with menopausal hot flashes and many other areas.
A powerful immunomodulator, astragalus is an excellent herb to balance and restore the immune system, elevating both specific and non-specific immunity. Studies indicate that it may help to re-establish red blood cell counts, maintain healthy white blood cell counts, and ameliorate damaged or diseased tissue. These characteristics make this herb a wonderful choice for those in with compromised immune health, while also assisting with the recovery from a contracted illness.
A powerful anti-inflammatory, ginger is both warming and soothing. The list of therapeutic benefits is practically endless, but as it pertains to the elderberry kit it also antiviral and increases circulation.
