Weleda Organic Sea Buckthorn Elixir
A common health misconception is that the chill of winter is responsible for the sudden peak in flu and sickness rates as the seasons change. However colds and flu are caused by viruses and a weak immune system. In summer, your body and immune system are used to functioning in warm temperatures, and when the seasons change, they are forced to re-adapt. During this time you are more vulnerable to germs and viruses, and a fragile immune system will easily become infected, resulting in flu or sickness.
Weleda’s Organic Sea Buckthorn Elixir is the perfect daily supplement to help protect your body from the winter temperature drop and stimulate it to adapt to the rhythm of the seasons.
The hero ingredient in Weleda Organic Sea Buckthorn Elixir is the biodynamically grown Sea Buckthorn Berries, which are naturally rich in the antioxidant Vitamins A, C and E, as well as unsaturated essential fatty acids including linoleic and linolenic acids. These boost the immune system to keep it strong all year round.
The levels of vitamin C in Sea Buckthorn Berries are thought to be among the highest of any plant food, exceeding oranges, lemons and cranberries. Levels of carotenoids (provitamin A) are also exceptionally high, and vitamin E content exceeds those found in sunflower seeds and almonds. The suggested daily dose of Weleda’s Organic Sea Buckthorn Elixir contains 90% of our Recommended Daily Vitamin C intake, making it an ideal choice during winter for children and adults.
Directions: Dilute a tablespoonful in water or tea, 2-3 times daily before meals. Or mix into juice or a smoothie for those with a sweet tooth or two!
"For an added immune strengthening combine Sea Buckthorn Elixir with Weleda Echinacea/Thuja Comp. This makes for a pleasant tasting drink used for the prevention and treatment of all types of infections, including cold and flu."
