This formula supports the natural defenses of the body against colds + flus of both bacterial and viral origin, using the power of three simple ingredients in clinically supported ratios: Echinacea, Ginger, and Osha.
Echinacea (Echinacea angustifolia, purpera) is an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, and immunomodulator. It is capable of increasing the number and activity of white blood cells. Echinacea enhances the resistance of the immune system to infections and stimulates wound healing. It is used for colds, influenza, wounds, infections, allergies, bacterial and viral disease, swollen glands, and gum disease. It is also specific for certain infectious conditions. It is safe in pregnant women, nursing mothers, and children. Do not use for more than 3 weeks.
Ginger (Zingiber officinalis) is an antimicrobial, diaphoretic, antipyretic, antitussive, expectorant, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, diuretic, anti-emetic, choleretic, analgesic, antioxidant, and an immunomodulator. It has been shown to increase phagocytic activity. It is safe in pregnant women, nursing mothers, and children.
Osha (Ligusticum porteri) is an antiviral, carminative, and diaphoretic. It has immunomodulating properties, and is a powerhouse when it comes to respiratory infections. Sources are unclear whether this herb is safe in pregnancy and lactation (some say its fine, some say its not) so proceed with understanding and caution. It is safe in children over 2 years old.
Apple Cider Vinegar is rich in enzymes, vitamins, and minerals. It helps soothe dry throats, remove toxins, promote healthy digestion and pH balance, and is fantastic at regulating the immune system.
For Children 2-12 years old: 10 drops in a little water or tea 1-3 times per day.
