Immunity Tincture Herbal Supplement (1 oz)
This is our first in a series of Systems Tonics designed to support the normal healthy functioning of the eleven systems of the body that keep us in balance. Everyday, our body performs the delicate job of processing what we give it (food, sleep, air, water) to keep up with what we put out in the form of workload, mental energy, waking hours, and care for others (to name a few). Our tonics are formulated to support where we may be depleted using herbs that have had longstanding traditional use and rigorous scientific study.
Systems Tonics are created by extracting the herbs with a combination of honey, vinegar, water, and alcohol to achieve the desired profile of plant compounds. These constituents are attracted to the extract mediums in varying degrees (this is where phytochemistry comes in!) and become a part of the formula by moving from the plant to the liquid. Our final step is to add cold pressed herb juices that are very potent and normally taken a drop at a time. Here the plant juice is preserved in the extract medium and the ingredients combine with a pleasing flavor. All herbs are grown using organic practices on our farm in Oley, Pennsylvania.
Immunity Tonic starts with your core using complementary adaptogens ashwagandha and tulsi; this pair strengthens the body and focuses the mind so we can withstand stress without becoming run down. Tulsi settles the nervous system and allows for a deep restful sleep. Elecampane is a respiratory herb, it acts as a stimulating expectorant that promotes healthy mucus secretions which are a first line of defense against inhaled pathogens. Spilanthes has been shown in studies to have antiviral, antiparasitic, and antibacterial actions. Finally and most importantly, each of the herbs including sage are shown scientifically to be immunomodulatory. This means the herbs assist your body’s ability to adjust its inflammatory response once it has been triggered. A healthy response is when the body is able to fight a pathogen without over reacting, leading to a quicker recovery.* Please note, this product is an herbal supplement to support your body and it does not replace medical care. Please seek the guidance of a licensed medical professional should you become ill.
