Immune support to avoid colds and flus

Saturday, October 5th, 2013

From Dr. Aumatma:

It’s that time of the year when everyone around you starts getting sick. What can you do to protect yourself?

Mycoimmunity: This is a brand new formula on the shelves at Five Flavors Herbs. Mycoimmunity is formulated by Paul Stamets, a leading expert on mushrooms. Mushrooms are known for their cancer fighting properties, but they also decrease inflammation and radically improve immunity to preventagainst minor colds and flus. This particular formula has mushrooms optimized to boost your immune system.

First Response is one of our house blends that is great to take at the first sign of a cold. If you start feeling a run down, a couple of dropperfuls of this immune tonic will go a long way!

Elderberry is one of the best single herbs for immune health. I remember when I was working in my first doctor’s office, I had quite a few teachers as patients that would always come in sniffling and coughing from being around kids that were sick. I started giving them strong doses of Elderberry tea and they were amazed how sniffle-free they were for rest of the season! At Five Flavors Herbs we have dry elderberries in bulk for tea, as well as tincture and a tasty Elderberry-Echinacea Syrup with honey.

So, this season – don’t get sick! Come in and consult one of our herbal experts for free… and avoid cold and flu.
