Wellness tinctures

My family has definitely been utilizing this tincture lately. This Wellness Tincture is crafted for overall wellness. It has the Elderberries, Astragalus root and Rosehips for immune support and cytokine modulation but also nervines and adaptogens traditionally used to aid with stress and anxiety and to calm the body and mind (something I think most of us are needing). Schisandra berries are commonly used in Chinese medicine as a fatigue fighter, increasing energy and supporting healthy cell function. They've also been shown to help the body produce glutathione (another hot topic right now about glutathione being a key player in cellular defense so the body can prevent and fight disease). When working with herbs learning their energetic properties is key-one being taste. There are 5 tastes: sweet, sour, salty, bitter and pungent. They all work in different ways with the body. Shisandra berries are extraordinary because they fall under all 5 tastes! Lemon Balm is well known as a nervine tonic, traditionally used to aid with anxious feelings while also supporting and regulating how your body responds to stress. Elderberries have been used for centuries to help with the immune system. Modern day studies have shown just how effective they are and really brought them to light. I use Sambucus nigra, the species of Elderberry that is the most studied, most used (most effective) and also the best tasting in my opinion. Elderberries have been shown to have an antioxidant called anthocyanin-which is one of the main reasons it’s so effective. Anthocyanin have also been proven to help eliminate free radicals. Elderberries have shown to have anti viral properties which have proven to prevent and/or reduce the severity and duration of cold and flu symptoms.In regards to most respiratory illnesses, the virus attaches to ACE-2 linkage surface cells, including in the lungs (cilia). ACE-2 is the entry point for the virus into cellular tissues and once the virus attaches-function declines or is destroyed. ACE-2 function is already on the low side in older folks. Elder blocks that viral attachment to the ACE-2 linkages! Astragalus Root is another gentle herb that has also been used for centuries to help strengthen the immune system. It has been shown to stimulate specific parts of our immune system (lymphocytes and monocytes) which helps the body fight viruses. It been found to be a great source of antioxidants which again helps fight off free radicals. Along with it’s antiviral properties it also carries antibacterial properties. It’s also considered an adaptogen-a plant that helps the body adapt to excess stress (and we know how stress can affect us) and has even been shown in modern day studies to help protect the liver, kidneys and heart. It has also been shown to modulate cytokine response 🌿
