Elderberry Defense contains herbs used historically in both Eastern and Western traditions related to the “defensive qi.” Also known as Wei Qi, this portion of our energy acts as a sentry, protecting and consolidating our borders. This formula is based on a powerful combination of sour herbs, including elderberry, hibiscus and rose hip. These super-fruits, contain unique and colorful plant pigments with a distinctive sour taste that nourishes and strengthens. Combined with Astragalus, the famous tonic root of Traditional Chinese Herbalism, for a base of earthy sweetness. Also a generous helping of fragrant, spicy herbs, including cinnamon and ginger to enhance vital energy flow, particularly to the periphery of the body, which acts as a boundary against intruders. They also bring heat to the digestive system to improve absorption of the powerful ingredients in this delicious tonic.

Replenishes depleted resources

Elderberry Defense functions as a preventative, helping to maintain optimal immunity and replenishing depleted resources. In times of greater vulnerability, such as the change of season, travel or when undergoing high stress, Elderberry Defense is particularly important. It supports the body’s defenses during cold, flu and allergies and reinforces optimal recovery. This tonic is also an excellent choice when sharing enclosed spaces with other people, such as in the workplace or when travelling. The fruity flavor appeals to children, so pack it in their lunch for sweet protection.

Ingredients Sourced

From Sustainable Farms

Since the beginning, we’ve traveled the world to source herbs from the regions where they are most potent and have cultivated direct-trade relationships with local farmers. We’ve found that this has a positive impact on small to midsize farmers who otherwise might not be able to sustain themselves economically the way they have for decades. At Goldthread, we’re proud to operate in a way that makes the most sustained & positive impact on the growers and producers of these plants.

The Elderberry drink was very good.

Best shelf stable functional beverage I’ve had

The ingredients are on pint with their adaptogenic ingredients. The flavor is very good. I appreciate the use of an alternative sweetener as well. Traditionally I haven’t enjoyed drinks with monk fruit but y’all have really mastered it. My only concern is I think it’s less expensive to buy it off shelf than online.

We have been drinking this for a while. It tastes great and we believe the drink supports our immune system. Shipping is fast too.
