Herbal tea infusions are so nourishing.
They’re a wonderful way to help support your body and get a good dose of readily available vitamins and minerals. They count towards your daily water intake too!
During the colder months I like to support my body with warming and immune boosting herbs. One thing I love about this tea is that my Little Love and Tiny Love will drink it and really enjoy it. They’ll drink a full mug, and even more if I add a reusable straw to it.
My favorite herbs to use to support the immune system are elderberries, nettle, red raspberry leaf, oatstraw, astragalus root and cinnamon.
Elderberries are known to help boost and support the immune system. They’re high in vitamin A, C, and bioflavonoids. Red raspberry leaf and oatstraw provide calcium, manganese, iron and selenium. Nettle is highly nutritious and is full of usable vitamin K + lots of minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium, selenium, potassium and zinc. Cinnamon provides a warming effect + supports digestion. Last, but not least, one of my favorites – astragalus root which is known for helping support the immune system.
