    Spotlight Herb: Echinacea

     

    Echinacea, or Coneflower, works by stimulating the immune system to produce natural sickness-fighter cells known as killer cells. Studies have shown that echinacea can improve low immune function in some people and reduce the risk of a cold by up to 35%. If you suffer from an autoimmune disorder, avoid echinacea.

    What’s in it? Echinacea + strawberry + blackberry + tulsi (holy basil) leaves, chamomile + safflower petals, cranberry pieces, natural flavours

    Similarly, the wellness community has a renewed appreciation for Echinacea and Tulsi and their effectiveness in preventing cold symptoms. Beyond the common cold, American natives have long maintained that Echinacea holds the key to preventing a host of additional illnesses and infections.   

    How it tastes: Refreshing and cleansing. Lightly tart.

    Power tip: To really get the immunity-boosting benefits from tea double up on the loose leaf and really brew it for 30 or more minutes.

     

    *Tea will not cure Coronavirus (COVID19), as some crazily claim, but teas containing immune-boosting herbs can support a healthy immune system when paired with a healthy lifestyle. The extra bonus is that our warming wellness blends will add to your daily hydration and help you relax during this unsettling time.
