The power of Elderberry & Echinacea

Elderberry and echinacea are as old as time. Egyptians would use them to improve their complexions and heal wounds. Nowadays they are used for much more. They are packed with antioxidants and are believed to prevent and shorten sickness. They are high in vitamin C, phenolic acids, and flavonoids. These words may be a little confusing but ultimately what it comes down to is that they reduce stress in the body and encourage blood flow. Both elderberry and echinacea are powerful tools to boosting immunity.

Winter is approaching, and it’s more common to catch a cold during this time. While the colder temperatures may contribute to you feeling unwell, it’s the germs of viruses that cause us to get sick. The low temperatures extend the life of bad microbes, and we are more likely to catch a virus. Elderberry and echinacea are a great way to boost your immunity and avoid getting sick.

Not only do they have super immunity powers, but they are also great antioxidants to promote healthy looking skin. The antioxidant properties work to eliminate toxins you are exposed to throughout the day. These include sweat, smoke, air pollutant, and sunlight. They will cleanse your blood flow and promote healing since they contain vitamin A.

Which one?

Elderberry is great when you have an illness to ease symptoms and promote getting back to full health. You can safely take elderberry at the same time but echinacea is best for preventative measures. Taking it before potentially falling ill can help defend against viruses from setting up camp in your body.
