Immunity boosting teas provide an enjoyable preventative measure, containing helpful herbs that serve to support your immune system. Here we list the powerful properties of these herbs and the teas that contain them.
Echinacea has long been a popular herbal remedy for promoting good health. This herb is noted for its antimicrobial properties which assists with increasing the body’s defence against illness. Studies have suggested that echinacea helps increase infection-fighting white blood cells.
Echinacea is a star ingredient in our naturopathic blend Resilience Organic, specifically formulated for immune system support. Our Echinacea Blend Organic also features the herb, along with warming ginger pieces.
This powerful Australian leaf is loved for its cleansing and healing abilities, along with its uplifting citrus aroma. Lemon myrtle is said to help strengthen your immune system and has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
