The 5 Best Herbs and Botanicals To Support Your Immune System

1. Elderberries

Elderberries are packed with antioxidant power: they are high in vitamin-c and anti-inflammatory agents. They have been also shown to decrease duration and severity of illness. To stay healthy this cold and flu season, try drinking elderberry tea.

2. Rose Hips

Rose flowers blossom in Spring and Summer, but Rose Hips grow after the petals have started to fall off during the fall months. Conveniently, they grow just in time for cold and flu season! Rose Hips are small, edible seeds super high in vitamin-c and sickness fighting antioxidants. Try drinking tea with Rose Hips to boost your immunity this fall.

 

3. Ginger

Packed with anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant rich compounds, ginger might help boost your immune system and promote healthier resistance to all the colds and flus going around.

If you do happen to fall down with a sickness, ginger might even help you feel better. Ginger has been used for centuries in treating nausea and pain, so if you catch a bug, try drinking ginger tea to soothe your tummy and your muscle aches.

4. Echinacea Root

Echinacea is a perennial herb native to the midwestern region of North America and is commonly made into tea to naturally boost immunity. Herbalists use it to stimulate the immune and lymphatic systems, thought to decrease the risk of developing colds and flus.

 

5. Licorice Root

Licorice Root has been widely used for centuries in China to boost immunity. After being studied by researchers, they found out why it works: it has anti-viral and anti-microbial compounds that help boost your immunity, naturally.

If you do fall down with a sickness, it also acts as a natural expectorant (a.k.a. it helps you get all that mucus out of your sinuses and airways). Instead of taking an expensive drug with heavy side effects, try Licorice Root tea!
