The Power of Elderberry
This superfruit comes from the Sambucus tree and boasts a variety of benefits to help boost the immune system. Believed for hundreds of years to help fight off colds and infections – with the potential to alleviate inflammation – elderberries have a super bright, tart flavor. Throughout history, elderberries have been well documented. In fact, at sites in Europe, researchers have found evidence that elderberry may have been cultivated by prehistoric man, and there are recipes for elderberry-based medications from Ancient Egypt. The tradition of the elderberry’s healing power goes back to Hippocrates, the ancient Greek physician, who described this plant as his “medicine chest” for the wide variety of ailments it seemed to cure. Over the centuries, elderberries have been used to treat colds, flu, fever, burns, cuts, and other illnesses.
Green Tea Always and Forever
You’ve heard it time and time again – green tea provides that just right amount of caffeine (25-50mg) so that you have the energy to tackle whatever comes up in your day – without the jitters. Not only is it refreshing and soothing, studies say that the L-theanine in green tea may calm the nervous system while increasing concentration levels. Plus, according to researchers at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, EGCG, the major polyphenol in green tea, may also play a role in the battle against Alzheimer’s disease.
Vitamin C to the Rescue
Meanwhile, with each cup of Bigelow Green Tea with Elderberry plus Vitamin C, you’ll meet 100% of the daily value of vitamin C. This nutrient offers benefits that may include protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, and other health conditions. When coupled with elderberry and green tea, it’s no wonder this flavor is considered a powerhouse!
Sounds delicious, right? With Bigelow Tea, every sip – and cup – counts.
