Also known as “The King of Mushrooms,” Chaga has a wide variety of active compounds that support the body. Considered one of the most healthful foods on the planet, it contains over 200+ phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals. Our Chaga Syrup works both preventatively and restoratively to build optimal immune health. The polysaccharides and beta-glucans within this functional mushroom modulate the immune system, reduce inflammation, and help ward off infection (1).
Packed with antioxidants, flavonoids and high levels of vitamin C, our Elderberry Syrup is formulated by Clinical Herbalists to shorten the duration of cold and flu symptoms while fortifying the immunity. The potent compounds in Elderberries work to reduce inflammation and congestion while bringing our bodies back into balance. They can produce inflammatory cytokines, kicking the immune system into high gear so it can combat unwelcome pathogens (2).
For thousands of years, cultures all over the world have used ginger root for its medicinal properties. It is traditionally used to provide relief from digestive disturbances but has potent anti-inflammatory properties that support the immune system. Ginger can increase levels of NK cell lysis, which breaks down cells that are infected with a virus (3). It also boosts levels of antibodies that combat pathogenic infection (4). Our Ginger Syrup packs a potent punch by supporting digestion, soothing inflammation, and boosting immunity.
