Echinacea is best known for its ability to act on our immune system to prevent or treat colds and flu. Echinacea contains phenolic compounds, which have the ability to stimulate the immune system, increasing the activity and number of immune cells such as T-cells and macrophages. Echinacea stimulates the overall activity of immune cells making them more efficient in attacking bacteria and viruses.
Spearmints (Menthe spicata) main active compounds cis-carveol and carvone possess anti-microbial properties, which makes it beneficial for supporting healthy immune function. Spearmint is also helpful for alleviating respiratory conditions like colds and flu and upper respiratory congestion.
Elderflower (Sambucus nigra) is commonly used by herbalists to treat respiratory problems such as colds and flu and sinus infections, helping to clear congestion (anti-catarrhal), and reduce high fevers and inflammation. Elderflower has an anti-bacterial action and helps support immune function. Elderflower contains phytochemicals and anxtioxidant that help protect the body from oxidative damage and support the immune system. Elderflower contains immune strengthening and anti-inflammatory nutrients vitamin C and A, and the flavonoid quercetin. Elder has also had a long history of being used for alleviating allergy symptoms.
Ginger root is a lovely warming spice that has been used by Chinese herbalists for over 2,500 years to treat colds. Ginger has the ability to stimulate the immune system. Ginger can activate T-cells, which are a critical part of our immune defenses. These white blood cells destroy cells infected by viruses. The impressive anti-inflammatory properties of ginger are well known and have been extensively studied.
Elderberries (Sambucus Nigra) are rich in powerful antioxidants including anthocyanins, quercetin, carotenoids and vitamins A and C. These compounds work together to help promote healthier immune defenses to improve the body’s ability to fight off infections and reduce oxidative stress and chronic disease. Elderberries are commonly used to treat colds and flu.
Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) has a natural antiseptic action. It is used in Ayurvedic medicine for the treatment of coughs, colds, sore throats and fevers. Lemongrass contains an active compound called lemonal, which gives this herb its anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory action along with distinct lemon aroma. Lemongrass also contains vitamin C which is vital for strengthening immune defenses and protecting the body from infections.
