Honey, Yacon Syrup, and Herbal Concentrate (Water, Cacao Nibs, Reishi Mushroom, Elderberry, Chaga Mushroom, Rosehip, Turkey Tail Mushroom, Elderflower) and Citric Acid.
Why these ingredients are special:
In addition to offering a classic sweet flavor and smooth mouth feel, honey is an effective cough suppressant and is a proven anti-bacterial. Honey also contains small amounts of zinc, vitamin C, B vitamins, potassium, and calcium, making it a wellness boosting superstar! But, honey really shines as an antioxidant powerhouse, making it heart healthy too! So if you find yourself feeling less than stellar, a little honey goes a long way. Combined with immune supporting herbs, berries, spices and adaptogens, Immunity is a turbo charged superfood blends that tastes great, ranks low on the glycemic index, and blends well into foods and beverages—hot and cold.
Yacon syrup has an earthy, complex flavor...and if you are looking for a keto-friendly sweetener, search no further! Our yacon syrup, which is sourced solely from Nepal, is rich in a soluble plant fiber known as fructooligosaccharides (FOS). FOS drastically slows down blood sugar spikes, is a prebiotic, and reduces the caloric value of this syrup. Also, FOS contains short chain fatty acids, which help regulate your immune response and fat metabolism. Rich in fiber, minerals and botanical goodness, yacon syrup may leave some residue at the bottom of the bottle—consider it a reminder that you are getting nothing but wholesome, nutritious, pure ingredients.
Super mushrooms such as reishi have become a hot health trend, and for good reason. All edible mushrooms have health benefits, with reishi being one of the powerhouses. Reishi makes your immune system stronger and smarter. Reishi and other mushrooms contain special starches (called ‘polysaccharides’) that put your immune system to the test by helping your immune cells sort out the good guys versus the bad guys. This way your body can knock out real threats (like cold viruses), while not overreacting to allergens that don’t pose any real harm, such as pollen. Also an adaptogen, reishi also calms your nerves and boosts lung function, so that you can better endure physical and mental stress. Reishi’s slightly bitter taste combines beautifully with cocoa nibs, creating a delightful bittersweet flavor palate.
Elderberry, or Sambucus nigra, is one of your best defenders against viral invaders, such as cold and flu viruses. These pretty purple berries offer more than good looks. Elderberries work like a shield against harmful viruses, actually blocking cold and flu viruses from latching onto your cells. Taking elderberries at the first sign of illness can shorten the duration of an illness. Immunity is crafted with whole, pure elderberries...no extracts!
Not only does chaga have a fabulous chocolatey flavor, but it is also another immune-boosting wonder. Like reishi, chaga increases your immune system IQ and supports your body’s capacity to use oxygen, which also gives you more energy and alertness. Chaga also has adaptogenic qualities—these tough mushrooms train your body just like a good workout, helping you fend off illness and deal with stress in a healthy way.
A lesser known part of the rose plant, these little seed-filled bulbs are known for their health and beauty boosting abilities. Rosehips are packed full of vitamin C and antioxidants, which means they support your immune system and have anti-inflammatory properties. Not only does vitamin C help you fend off colds, it also helps your body make collagen, which supports skin and connective tissue health...a nice added benefit!
Turkey Tail Mushrooms
Turkey tail has been researched more than any other healing mushroom. It has a profound ability to support the immune system, fending off viruses, infections, and chronic ailments. Like its mushroom cousins, chaga and reishi, turkey tail contains an impressive array of antioxidants, including phenols and flavonoids which promote immune system health by reducing inflammation and stimulating the release of protective compounds. Just think what turkey tail can do for you!
Elderflower is great for helping you fight off colds and flus, and for clearing your skin. It also calms down the histamine response, so is helpful for soothing allergic reactions. Immunity is made with whole elderflowers.
Cacao is the perfect example of a food that is delicious and nutritious. Full of antioxidants, cacao supports heart health by reducing inflammation and oxidative stress. Plus, this tasty mood booster promotes the release of endorphins. Cacao is rich in magnesium, zinc, and flavanols—making these yummy nibs nutrient rich while helping your body fight off illness and chronic stress.
We use a small amount of citric acid to extend freshness and preserve the quality of our superfood blends. Originally procured from lemon juice, citric acid is naturally found in citrus fruits, such as lemons and limes.
The ingredients in our immunity blend helps you fend off colds and viruses, so try a spoonful at the first sign of a cough or cold. Plus, the honey in immunity helps soothe dry, sore, scratchy throats.
Unsweetened cocoa is full of health benefits, but sugar and additives aren’t exactly known for their health benefits. Try sweetening your hot chocolate with a teaspoon or two of immunity instead of sugar.
Add 1-2 teaspoons of immunity to a glass of fizzy water for an all-natural super healthy soda with flavor dimension.
