We often overlook to wear a hat, don’t get sufficient sleep or eat too a lot sugar, so a minor added immune support is very welcome throughout the colder months. These gummy candies give protein for your diet plan and several immune-boosting herbs. They’re tasty also!
That’s like, two or three birds with 1 stone.
Truly, possibly four birds if you count the reality that they make an Exceptional addition to lunchboxes.
But why are we throwing stones at birds?
I got the notion to use blueberries even though listening to a Dr. Aviva Romm podcast about constructing immunity. She especially called out blueberries as a food to include in your diet plan – both frozen or fresh. (For this recipe I employed frozen blueberries from Wyman’s of Maine.)
The subsequent ingredient is elderberry syrup, identified for its immune boosting properties. It’s wonderful to take preventatively and also during sickness. You can acquire elderberry syrup pre-made, or make your own. If you don’t want to use elderberry syrup, just use much more blueberries.
We’ve received some lemon in there for Vitamin C and a taste punch. In no way hurts, correct?
I use this gelatin. It’s from grass-fed beef. Gelatin is healing for the gut. Gut health = much better immune perform.
And ultimately (this part is optional) I’ve identified these gummies to be an outstanding vehicle for immune-boosting herbal extracts like echinacea, andrographis, reishi and/or astragalus. On their very own, herbal tinctures taste horrible. But I’ve extra 12 drops to this recipe and the taste is undetectable.
