6 Herbs for Active Immune Support*

Sometimes you just know your immune system needs a little help. Good thing nature has a number of different herbs you can turn to in moments like this. 

Here are 6 of our favorite herbs for active immune support.*

Black Elderberry

Black Elderberry provides deep support for an active immune response.* Our Black Elderberry extract is prepared from Certified Organic, fully-ripened berries of Sambucus nigra trees. To assure optimal extraction of Black Elderberry's bioactive compounds, the berries are hand-harvested only when fully mature. It has a tart, fruity taste.


Echinacea is a foundational immune herb that provides complex, deep support of the immune system over both the short and long term.* Herb Pharm’s Echinacea extract is prepared from fresh (never dried) roots of Echinacea purpurea which are Certified-Organically Grown on our own farm. The roots are harvested and then promptly extracted while still fresh and succulent. It has a deep, earthy taste followed by a tingling mouthfeel. Start a healthy habit with Echinacea.


Traditional Support for the Immune System.* Lomatium is a hardy root that's difficult to cultivate commercially. It is responsibly wildcrafted exclusively for us in its rocky, Oregon habitat. Lomatium extract is very resinous and slightly bitter. Take a closer look at Lomatium.

Olive Leaf

Oregano supports the immune system.* We make our Oregano into Oregano Spirits, a proprietary blend of the extract and essential oil of Origanum vulgare plants. Oregano Spirits are intensely fiery and pungent, spicy and highly aromatic.Shop for Oregano Spirits.
