PREVENTATIVE HELPFUL HERBS AND PRODUCTS
Note: These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
Elder Berry Tincture – Many people are benefiting from using Elderberry as a preventative since it supports the immune system. However, herbalists are seeing that once the symptoms actually manifest, the body conditions change and the tissues move from a hot, dry state to a cold, damp state. That is why it is so important to work with someone who knows these body shifts and can guide you to the different options as stages change.
Astragalus Root Tincture – Its main use is to support the immune system, as it has antiviral capabilities. It also supports the cardiovascular system. Astragalus is a well-known adaptogen which is helpful in stressful situations.
Immunitone Plus – An herbal formula designed to support healthy immune system function during cold and flu season. It contains herbs that support normal natural killer (NK) cell activity and the balance of cytokines, which re the regulatory proteins released by immune cells as part of a normal immune system response. The standardized herbs in this formula contain optimal and consistent amounts of the most active ingredient.
