Cold and flu-fighting ingredients 

The whole gang’s here!

Organic ginger with the active component gingerol is a traditional method for managing cold, flu, coughs and specifically sore throats. 

Organic garlic is packed with immune-boosting, antimicrobial and antiviral properties that help relieve and alleviate cold and flu symptoms. 

Organic lemon is a great source of antioxidants and vitamin c, which, when taken daily, can shorten the severity and frequency of colds and cases of flu. 

Raw unpasteurized honey, with its natural antibiotic properties, soothes irritation in the throat and removes phlegm build-up caused by cold and flu symptoms. Unpasteurized honey contains more antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and healthy enzymes than pasteurized honey.
