Want to avoid getting sick this season? I can’t say I blame you! Here are three zero waste immune boosters that will help you stay healthy as can be.
Fire cider is not for the faint of heart. It does a fantastic job of keeping you healthy all winter long. This potent herbal tonic is designed to produce anti-fungal, antiviral, antibiotic and anti-inflammatory activity in the body. You can make fire cider at home.
Echinacea is one of my favorite ways to boost immune support. If you prefer a more gentle, tasty way to boost your immune system, I highly recommend drinking one to two cups of echinacea tea a day. Echinacea cuts the chances of catching a common cold by 58%.
Ginseng is an amazing, powerful herb for immune support. It’s an adaptogenic herb that supports mental clarity, physical endurance and has antioxidant properties to support heart health. Ginseng can be quite expensive, so make sure to buy it from a well-trusted company.
You can get a lot of immune boosters almost completely waste free. Check your local farmers market to see which ingredients they sell. You could also try growing your own. And if you drink them in tea, you can compost the tea bags when you are finished.
