Morlife Echinacea Boost fortified herbal teas 
Echinacea Boost is a distinctive blend of powerful herbs fortified with synergistic nutrients. Drink to enhance your nutritional intake, especially during winter.

When it comes to feeling well, who can debate that one of the most important factors is a strong immune system. Having a strong immune system is like owning a personal army that fights off illnesses quickly and effectively, while other people may be ill for weeks or even months.

Specific herbs, like Echinacea, and nutrients can help to build immunity within the body and assist the immune system in fighting off illnesses.

Herbs & nutrients to encourage a healthy immune system
Echinacea (Echinacea purpurea) is a well-known herb used for infections such as colds, strep throat, bacterial sinusitis and flu[1]. Many studies have confirmed Echinacea to have immune-stimulating and anti-inflammatory properties[1]. The German government regulatory agency, Commission E recommends Echinacea for upper and lower respiratory tract infections[2].

Olive (Olea europaea) is a Mediterranean plant grown mostly for its fruit. Its leaves are astringent and antiseptic, and are usually made into an infusion which can calm general anxiety and lower fever[3].

Hibiscus Flowers (Hibiscus sabdariffa) are known to have the taste and aroma of slightly tart berries. The flowers are rich in mucilage, that form a soothing fibre when added to water and the tea is thought to contain high concentrations of flavonoids, particularly anthocyanins. Hibiscus has been traditionally used for soothing sore throats, laryngitis and tonsillitis, coughs, dryness of the lungs and digestive upsets[4].

Elderberry herb (Sambucus nigra) has diuretic, anti-inflammatory and anti-catarrhal actions. It is beneficial for raising body temperature, causing sweat which is useful in stimulating the immune system. Elderberry is rich in mineral salts and vitamins, particularly vitamins B and C. It is mainly used for colds, flu, dry coughs, sinusitis and catarrh[5].

Rosehips are the fruit of a rose after the petals have fallen. They are a rich source of vitamin C and also contain the carotenoid, lycopene[6].

Calcium ascorbate is a non-acidic form of vitamin C, making it gentle to the stomach. Vitamin C is one of the most important antioxidants in the body. It also increases the antioxidant activity of vitamin E[7],[1]. It is essential for collagen formation, iron absorption, thyroid hormone production, fat metabolism and healthy immune function. Studies show that it may be beneficial for diabetes, cardiovascular disease, eye problems, osteoporosis and even some cancers[1].

Zinc is an essential trace mineral that is needed for the function of over 300 enzymes in the human body, including carbohydrate metabolism, protein and DNA production, protein digestion, bone metabolism and antioxidant protection[8]. As an antioxidant, zinc protects vitamin E, controls vitamin A, restricts internal free radical production and is needed for superoxide dismutase (SOD) production[9].

Suggested Use: Infuse 1 - 2 teabags in very hot water (not boiling) for 2 - 5 minutes. Use up to 3 times daily. Best consumed without milk. Add honey to sweeten if desired.

For a delicious alternative add an Echinacea Boost teabag to hot blackcurrant juice.
