Ingredients & Benefits
Echinacea also known as purple coneflower, is one of the most popular herbs worldwide. Native Americans have used it for centuries to treat various ailments. Inflammation is your body’s natural way of promoting healing and defending itself. Sometimes inflammation can get out of hand and last for longer than necessary and expected. This may raise your risk of chronic diseases and other health problems. Echinacea has been shown to improve immunity, blood sugar, anxiety, inflammation, and skin health. It may even have anti-cancer properties. However, human-based research is often limited.
Elderberries have been a folk remedy for centuries in North America, Europe, Western Asia, and North Africa. Elderberries contain organic pigments, tannin, amino acids, carotenoids, flavonoids, sugar, rutin, vibronic acid, vitamin A and B, and a large amount of vitamin C. Elderberry is used for its antioxidant activity, to lower cholesterol, to improve vision, to boost the immune system, to improve heart health and for coughs, colds, flu, bacterial and viral infections, and tonsillitis. Bioflavonoids and other proteins in the juice destroy the ability of cold and flu viruses to infect a cell. In a large case study, people with the flu who took elderberry juice reported less severe symptoms and felt better much faster than those who did not.
Orange peels have about four times more health benefits than the actual orange fruit that we eat. Orange peels contain flavonoids. Flavonoids are antioxidant compounds that help prevent chronic diseases such as cancer and heart diseases. It also contains higher amounts of certain nutrients. For example, 3.5 ounces of orange peel provides 136 mg of Vitamin C. In addition, orange peel contains considerable amounts of copper, calcium, magnesium, vitamin A and dietary fiber.
Do not drink on a completely empty stomach. Drink a glass of water before or nibble on something. Boil water and steep tea for 2-5 minutes. Add honey, lemon, and ginger to boost the flavor and health benefits. Enjoy!
