and their medicinal properties
Elderberry is packed with anthocyanin - the flavonoid that gives red, blue, purple and black fruits and vegetables their beautiful colors. This powerful phytonutrient has been proven to defend against cancers, diabetes and dementia, enhance heart health, support neurological/response and ward off the cold and flu.
Hibiscus has been used by different cultures as a remedy for several conditions. Egyptians used hibiscus tea to lower body temperature, treat heart and nerve diseases, and as a diuretic to increase urine production. Today, hibiscus is popular for its potential to reduce high blood pressure & cholesterol levels.
Oranges are one of the most popular fruits in the U.S., but very few consume the peel, which is arguably the healthiest part of the whole fruit. Orange peels are rich in flavonoids, antioxidant compounds found in certain fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices — that are known for their role in helping to prevent chronic diseases like heart disease and cancer. Orange peel also contains considerable amounts of calcium, copper, magnesium, vitamin A, folate and other B vitamins and dietary fiber.
Rose Hips are high in iron, and a valuable source of vitamin C, containing as much as 20 times more vitamin C than oranges. They are also an excellent antioxidant. Studies show that it may reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis and help sore, achy joints function better.
Cinnamon possesses anti-microbial, antibiotic, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties making it the perfect addition to this synergistic blend.
Glycerin is a compound derived from certain plants. It is colorless, odorless, and sweet to the taste. We always use organic, kosher, non-gmo, food grade Glycerin for our extracts. Glycerin may help relieve occasional constipation, since it draws water into the colon and rectum when used as a suppository. It may help the body rehydrate during bouts of diarrhea and vomiting. According to the British Journal of Ophthalmology, oral glycerin supplements may help reduce excessive eye pressure caused by eye disorders such as glaucoma.
WHY ADD CBD:
Stress is the #1 cause of illness due to how severely it can weaken the immune system. By infusing my elderberry extract with CBD, it allows you to mentally and physically de-stress, while the elderberry and supporting herbs works their magic by strengthening and supporting your immune system. Experts also say that CBD may be able to treat conditions like epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, anxiety, depression, and other maladies. It can ease inflammation, provide antioxidants, and relieve pain.
I do not recommend for anyone with a compromised immune system, undergoing chemotherapy, or taking immune suppressing medications. Please talk to the healthcare professional before considering elderberry supplements if your immune system is compromised.
