28 Jan , 2016

The short answer, YES!!

The long answer- We created our company on the basis of creating teas safe for pregnancy and to provide alternatives that moms-to-be (and families) could enjoy.

Family Immunity is a blend designed to support the immune system of moms-to-be. When we created this tea we were thinking specifically about pregnant Moms! During pregnancy, the immune system is working extra hard and pregnant women are often more susceptible to sickness.  We add Organic Elderberry, Organic Astragalus, Organic Rose Hips, Organic Goji Berries and Organic Cinnamon Chips to this blend.

Elderberry is one of the best-known powerhouses for cold and flu.  It’s a fantastic example of food being a powerful medicine and has been used for generations by herbalists to help shorten the duration of symptoms.    You’ll also find elderberry lends a beautiful color to our tea.

Astragalus Root is one of the most important tonic herbs in Traditional Chinese Medicine.  It’s most commonly known for immune system enhancing properties.  (note-those receiving immunosuppressive therapy should be cautious or avoid the use of this herb)

Rosehips are full of phyto-nutrients, high in Vitamin-C, and contain significant levels of bioflavonoids.   Vitamin-C breaks down under high temperatures so it’s best to steep or simmer the tea under low temperatures.  Rosehips also add a delicious flavor to our tea.

Goji Berry works in conjunction with astragalus root as a tonic.  Traditional Chinese Medicine says goji berry works to “Tonify the Blood,” and “Nourish and Tonify the Liver and Kidneys.”  Western concepts translate this to “supplement and strengthen the immune system.”  (note- those with nightshade allergies should avoid goji berries)

Cinnamon Chips is added for the warming, fragrant, comforting, sweet and spicy qualities it brings to our tea.  It also helps to round out the flavor and overall synergy of the tea.

 

So brew yourself a cup and enjoy Mama! You’ll be nourishing yourself and your baby with this delicious tea.  Your whole family can enjoy this yummy tea together.

~Here’s to a healthy cold/flu season.
