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.

A little bit of everything goodness

Fresh, ripe, tart and tangy with a hint of a sweetness. But that’s not the only reason why I drink it. Elderberry provides a good source of vitamin C, fiber and antioxidants. It supports heart health with a variety of anti-cancer, anti-diabetes and anti-inflammatory effects. Can’t get enough of this one!

Flu session necessity

I cannot rave about this drink enough! I bought this product for myself and my family during flu season after we were directly exposed to influenza A. We drank one Elderberry a day and never came down with the flu. Not only does this drink pack in the nutrients, it tastes great as well. My two year old asks for it! This is our go to immunity booster!

Best way to take my elderberry

I always found elderberry syrups to be too strong for my tastes. This is the perfect way for me to get in my daily dose in a tasty/easy way and I'm very happy this product exists!
