Elderberry is a natural diuretic that helps to eliminate toxins at the cellular level and astragalus is a fantastic herb that can help build defenses in your body too! This soothing tea tonic has a nice tart berry flavour combined with rich spices! By building up your immune system, you are stimulating your body and maintaining your natural defenses strong against the many threats around you such as germs, bacteria and viruses. By producing antibodies and revitalizing your white blood cells, this also means you will be able to recover faster from illness and prevent premature aging and even diseases. Your skin mirrors your internal health, so when you are healthy and strong, you look younger and fresher (and who doesn’t want that)! Cheers!
