Immune Boosting Tea

Natural Mamma Immune Boosting Tea

Cold and flu season is in full swing here in Colorado. Add that to my bout of mastitis and this immune boosting tea is a life saver.

This tea is high in Vitamin C and contains herbs that will help kick that cold to the curb. Begin taking at the first sign of cold or flu symptoms to help support your body’s normal immune function. If you already have a raging cold or flu, try the Natural Mamma Cold and Flu Support Tea instead.

The healing combination of elderberry, rose hips, echinacia, chamomile, and astragalus will help your immune system stay strong. It tastes like a light juice making it a great tea to give to kids as an immune boost daily without any fight!

Ingredients:

Organic Elderberry: “Bioflavonoids and other proteins in the juice destroy the ability of cold and flu viruses to infect a cell.”3

Organic Chamomile: Chamomile Tea is shown to boost the immune system and fight infections associated with colds 1

Organic Rose Hips: High in Vitamin C and other Anti-oxidents, Rose Hips help support the body’s natural immune function

Organic Astragalus: A powerfull adaptogenic herb that helps balance the body and increase immune function.

Organic Echinacea purpurea: A known, potent, immune system supporting herb increasing non specific immune system activity (think broad spectrum immunity).

This is a loose leaf blend.

You can make your own blend using the recipe below, or, if you don’t have the ingredients or time, you can purchase the tea from me under the “Natural Mamma Products” tab or here.

You can buy your bulk herbs at Mountain Rose Herbs, which is where I get mine! At the time I am writing this they are out of elder berries. I bought the elderberry powder instead and it works just fine in the tea.

    Mastitis, yuck! I just got over a bout of it a few days ago.

    This tea looks great, my kids love tea too. I’ll have to get ahold of some of these ingredients and try it out 🙂

  2. I’ve heard such great things about MRH, I hope I can find time to try some of their herbs out sometime soon.

  3. Joyce says:

    I love MRH products, I also wanted to get the elderberries, and they have been out for a couple of months now. I’m thinking I may need to wait until the next harvest, thanks for the recipe.

  4. This look fantastic! I’m definitely pinning this for future reference.

    Great post!!
    Created a simular version on my own blog. However, I couldn’t get the berry taste, so I added dried lemon peel and spearmint.
