Elderberries: Have been a folk remedy for centuries in North America, Europe, Western Asia, and North Africa, hence the medicinal benefits of elderberries are being investigated and rediscovered. 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. People with the flu who took elderberry juice reported less severe symptoms and felt better much faster than those who did not.

Echinacea: Stimulates the overall activity of the cells responsible for fighting all kinds of infection. Unlike antibiotics, which directly attack bacteria, echinacea makes our own immune cells more efficient at attacking bacteria, viruses and abnormal cells. It increases the number and activity of immune system cells including anti-tumor cells, promotes T-cell activation, stimulates new tissue growth for wound healing and reduces inflammation in arthritis and inflammatory skin conditions.

Mint: While there is no magical cure for the cold and flu, mint has proven to be beneficial in alleviating the congestion that accompanies many respiratory problems. People suffering from the unwelcome symptoms that come with bronchitis, the flu, and any issue with the respiratory tract can often have their airways cleared by the powerful aroma of mint. Mint is an alternative ingredient in inhalers, providing a cooling effect that reduces inflammation and soothes as well. It can be useful for those who suffer from asthma and may help them to manage their condition.

Calendula: Best known as a first aid treatment for cuts and wounds, however, it is also used internally as an antimicrobial to help the body resist pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Research has shown that calendula is effective against flu. Calendula is also an effective lymphatic cleanser, reducing lymphatic congestion and infection and removing toxins from the lymph system.
