Cold and Flu Tea: Try ShieldsUp!

ShieldsUp - Cold and Flu Season

It’s that time of year — it’s cold and flu season. All-natural herbal supplements may provide support.

This time of year, everyone seems to be sick — friends, family, neighbors, coworkers … January through March is cold and flu season, and it can be challenging for several reasons:

  1. Viral Spread: Cold and flu viruses are highly contagious and can spread easily through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. This makes it difficult to prevent the spread of these viruses, especially in crowded places like schools, offices, and public transportation.
  2. Variability of Viruses: There are many different strains of cold and flu viruses, and they can mutate over time, making it difficult for the immune system to recognize and fight them effectively. This variability also means that people can get sick multiple times during the season, as they may be exposed to different strains.
  3. Seasonal Factors: Cold and flu viruses tend to thrive in colder, drier air, which is why cold and flu season typically occurs in the fall and winter months. In addition, people tend to spend more time indoors during these months, which can increase the risk of virus transmission.
  4. Symptom Similarity: The symptoms of colds and flu can be similar, including coughing, sneezing, congestion, fatigue, and fever. This can make it difficult for people to differentiate between the two illnesses, leading to delays in seeking appropriate treatment.
  5. Impact on Health Care Systems: Cold and flu season can place a significant strain on healthcare systems, as hospitals and clinics may become overwhelmed with patients seeking treatment for respiratory illnesses. This can lead to longer wait times, increased healthcare costs, and challenges in providing adequate care to all patients.

ShieldsUp! for Cold and Flu Season

You’ve probably done everything you’re told to do. You’re trying to prioritize sleep, drink your OJ in the morning, exercise, and steer clear of others who are sick. And yet … it’s near impossible to avoid every possible disease vector.

Linden Botanicals created our proprietary  ShieldsUp! Immune Support Kits so they would provide the necessary ingredients to support your immune system as it fights off invading pathogens.

This 20-day formula is a proprietary collection of 5 healthy herbal extracts and 1 amino acid: Cistus incanus, Phyllanthus niruri, Rosa rugosa, Agarikon mushroom, Torilis japonica, and L-lysine.

This collection of herbal supplements is designed to:

  • Support your immune defenses
  • Inhibit the lifecycle of common viruses
  • Help fight colds, flus, coughs, and invading pathogens
  • Bolster the respiratory tract
  • Protect against free radical damage
  • Protect against overactive immune response inflammation

What Herbals Are in Immune Support Kits?

ShieldsUp! Immune Support Kits from Linden Botanicals are a proprietary collection of six healthy supplements. No other kits in the world contain these six herbals.

Cistus incanus offers scientifically proven relief of cold and flu symptoms. Cistus incanus has strong antioxidant properties that can help combat oxidative stress. Linden Botanicals customers from around the globe swear by it. It tastes great, too.

Phyllanthus niruri (also called Chanca Piedra) provides immune health support. It supports kidney and urinary health by helping to break down kidney stones and promoting their natural passage. It also provides significant support for liver health. Phyllanthus niruri has antiviral, antimalarial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties and may offer more health benefits than any other plant in the world.

Rosa rugosa (also called Rose Hips) may enhance immune response and help to control inflammation. Its vitamin C content contributes to improved skin health by promoting collagen production and improving skin tone. Its antioxidant-rich composition may help combat oxidative stress and inflammation. Our Rosa rugosa extract is standardized to 20% vitamin C.

Agarikon mushroom (also called Laricifomes officinalis) has been traditionally used for its antimicrobial properties, which may help combat various infections and provide support for cold and flu. Some studies suggest that it offers significant immune properties, making it an intriguing subject for further research.

Torilis japonica supports healthy inflammation response. It hasanti-inflammatory and diuretic properties, which may be useful in helping to manage conditions like arthritis and fluid retention. Some herbal remedies also use Torilis japonica for its potential to promote urinary tract health and alleviate urinary discomfort.

Finally, L-lysine, an amino acid, may inhibit viral replication and block receptors involved in stress response.

Is ShieldsUp! a Cold and Flu Cure?

Your immune system does a pretty good job of defending you against disease-causing microorganisms. But sometimes a germ invades and makes you sick. Sometimes that germ is novel, and your body has no innate immunity to it.

An anti viral tea aims to help the immune system in its day-to-day defense against disease. Well-chosen herbal supplements may be able to help your immune system function optimally. For example, Rosa rugosa provides an excellent source of Vitamin C, which can contribute to the effectiveness of the body’s immune response.

Numerous scientific studies indicate that Cistus incanus and Phyllanthus niruri can help protect the body against infection and disease. Phyllanthus niruri is an immunomodulator that can help quell an overactive immune response. Cistus incanus provides immune system support by interfering with viral binding strategies.

Both Cistus incanus and Phyllanthus niruri provide significant immune herbal support. Nonetheless, these all-natural herbals are not “immune boosting” agents, and they’re not providing a cure. To that end, be wary of anyone selling herbal “cures” for what ails you.

Where Can I Get More Information?

ShieldsUp! Kits contain 20 days of support. Each of the herbal supplements in ShieldsUp! is packaged individually so you can choose how best to support your immune health. You can take all of the cold and flu supplements together, or try them out individually.

Kits come with a scoop. Mix one scoop twice a day into warm water, juice, or a smoothie. As desired, you could also mix one scoop of herbal mixture with one teaspoon honey, add the mixture to warm water, and drink it as a tea.
