The impact of herbal tea on the immune system

The immune system requires a careful balance of vitamins, minerals and nutrients to function properly; by drinking a herbal tea like Nutra Defence, you can help boost this system and prevent yourself from experiencing infections or inflammation.

Nutra Defence contains elderberry, liquorice, mullein, ginger, ginseng and thyme which have all been shown to contribute to the body’s natural defence system. Astragalus, elderberry and thyme all contain antioxidants, for example, while ginger has antiviral and antibacterial properties and has been proven in studies to reduce inflammation in the body.

Because of ingredients like ginger, this tea can also have a soothing impact on the respiratory tract, throat and mouth. If you want to take this a step further, you can also drink Nutra Throat which is carefully designed to support the upper respiratory tract, throat, pharynx and vocal cords.
