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.*
