AntiViral Tincture  3oz.   $25

A tincture is a highly concentrated herbal extract made by soaking plant materials—in this case, olive leaf, garlic, oregano, and thyme — in a high grade alcohol  for an extended period of time, usually at least six weeks. The alcohol helps pull the nutritional and medicinal components out of the plants and disperses them into a liquid that's easy to incorporate into your day. Tinctures can be taken orally, or added to water, juice, or tea.

The combination of the plants  in this tincture were intentionally utilized to create a power antiviral blend based on their individual properties. Some benefits of each of the ingredients used -and empirical studies to back these claims- are as follows:

Olive Leaf: 

The olive leaf has been studied expansively for its potential to prevent chronic diseases. Research points to lower rates of illnesses and cancer-related deaths among populations that follow an olive-rich diet. The positive effect is due in part to the powerful and health-boosting benefits of the olive leaf. Olive leaf extract/tincture is a concentrated dose of the nutrients in olive tree leaves. It’s a potent source of antioxidants that support the immune system. By fighting cell damage that causes disease, antioxidants work to reduce the risk of many illnesses — but research shows that this activity in olive leaf extract may contribute to a range of other health benefits.

Garlic: There is historical evidence that garlic has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. The ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Babylonians all made use of its amazing natural properties. Ongoing research continues to illustrate just how much garlic can do for our health. Many of the therapeutic benefits of garlic come from a powerful chemical compound known as allicin. Garlic also contains vitamins C and B6 as well as a healthy dose of manganese, selenium, calcium, copper and potassium.

Oregano: Oregano is high in antioxidants. One active agent in oregano is rosmarinic acid, which is a strong antioxidant that may support immune system health. Oregano is antibacterial, anti-fungal, and may even kill food borne pathogens such as listeria. Oregano is used to treat respiratory infections, is anti-inflammatory, and encourages sweat production helping to detox your body - making it a must-have for cold and flu season. In addition to fighting off bacteria, some test-tube studies have found that oregano and its components may also protect against some viruses. In particular, carvacrol and thymol are two compounds in oregano that have been associated with antiviral properties. In one test-tube study, carvacrol inactivated norovirus, a viral infection that causes diarrhea, nausea and stomach pain, within one hour of treatment.

Thyme: On its own, thyme is a powerful anti-infectious agent that has been found in many studies to kill harmful bacteria and fungi, in addition to viruses. Thyme has long been used in traditional medicine as an expectorant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, and antiseptic agents, mainly in the treatment of the upper respiratory system. The active compound in thyme, thymol, contains potent antiviral properties and is essential for Cold & Flu, Epstein Barr, Shingles, Hepatitis, Influenza, Herpes, Cytomegalovirus, HPV, etc. If taken on a regular basis it can significantly help to reduce the viral load in the body which makes it highly beneficial for those suffering with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, Vertigo, Tinnitus, and Multiple Sclerosis.
