- Ginseng supports the body’s immune function and the treatment of immunity-related disorders.
Echinacea has been shown to aid in reducing the duration and severity of cold/flu symptoms in adults if taken at early onset of these symptoms.
Echinacea has also been studied with promising results as an adaptogen aiding in the management of stress and anxiety.
Aside from its well-known characteristics of aiding in the reduction of nausea, ginger’s aromatic component, gingerol, has been shown to be a good component of an anti-inflammatory diet, to support good gastrointestinal function, manage pain, and potentially reduce the risk of metabolic syndromes; in particular, aiding in the promotion of good heart health.
- Citrus peels are high in powerful antioxidants called polyphenols, specifically flavonoids. Flavonoids have been shown to potentially support immune function and decrease inflammation in the body, consequently reducing the overall risk of illness and chronic disease.
