Botanicals for Immune System Strength

With shelves bare of the disinfectant and the pharmaceuticals many use to ward off viruses, its time for a deeper look into the botanical world for support.  You can find them as supplements, tinctures or teas.

1. Elderberry

Found in some cough syrups, the dark purple berry has been revered in native communities for its immune system building strength. Hippocrates referred to elderberry as his “medicine chest.”

2. Echinacea 

One of the most popular herbs for immune support is echinacea or coneflower.  Its flower and leaves are known for their immune-promoting properties.

3. Andrographis

A third herb, and less known immune system builder is andrographis.  Native to India and China, is a botanical that has been used traditionally during times of immune challenge. 

This is just a very shortlist of botanicals.  In addition its great to pump up intake of vitamins and minerals such as zinc, vitamin C and vitamin D. Many people are unsure about the proper dosage of vitamin D to meet their individual needs. Get out in the sun!

With a right combination of food sources (herbs are food), you can fortify yourself to avoid any virus.
