I do not make any affiliate sales by recommending Mountain Rose Herbs, I just really love the company and their fresh products.

My wonderful mother gave me a $50 gift certificate to Mountain Rose Herbs for my birthday, and with it I bought a bunch of Ginseng leaf, ashwagandha rootholy basil leaf, and a tincture called adapt care.  You can find the benefits and uses via the links.

After lots of vegan chocolate cake and decadent dinners, we knew our bodies were bound to get unbalanced and start throwing warning signs. And what do ya know, a few days ago Dominick started to get the classic symptoms of a cold; sore throat, fatigue, head pressure and stuffy nose. 

He combined the new herbs we got and made himself a tea, when I took a sip I thought for sure he added cinnamon or some kind of spice. But to my surprise it was just these three herbs. They make such a great combination, I can’t say enough how much I love the flavors and the warmth it brings.

After about 4 quarts of this tea, 2 shots of that adapt care tincture mixed with water, soup, fresh fruits, veggies, and herbs he’s back in full action 2 days later. Check out my immune boosting tips or Ultimate Guide to Beating The Cold & Flu  for more info!
