One of the many side effects of modern western life is the fact that as a society, we've forgotten many truths of our past. Among these, are the medicinal and health-affirming aspects of common plants and fruits. With this refreshing blend of herbs, fruits and leaves, we're attempting to change all that.
Cranberry Echinacea draws on a number of ingredients from the natural world that possess traditional therapeutic uses we've all but forgotten about. Take strawberry and blackberry leaves, for example. To our ancestors, these bioactive-rich leaves were commonly used to make poultices and tisanes that were used to combat everything from the common cold to inflammation and diabetes.
Similarly, Echinacea, while it has surged in popularity in recent years, had been forgotten for decades before a Swiss herbalist recognized its effectiveness in preventing cold symptoms. Beyond the common cold, American natives have long maintained that Echinacea holds the key to preventing a host of additional illnesses and infections.
In order to capitalize on the knowledge of the past and bridge the historical wellness gap, we've blended these and a number of other herbs (including Tulsi, considered something of a cure-all in parts of India) with lush cranberry. The result is an antioxidant-rich blend that's become our office go-to when anyone's feeling under the weather. The best side-effect of this nutrient-heavy blend is its stunning flavor - refreshing with a subtle tart character. Get ready to sip your cold away!
