The Apothecary 27 Team's Secret To Staying Well

Time to stock up on natural remedies for colds! In store all month we’re offering a free box of Pukka Elderberry & Echinacea Tea with every purchase of Elderberry Syrup and Mushroom Gold Capsules. The combination of all three Pukka powerhouses should send virus bugs running!

Pukka’s Elderberry Syrup (Carron and Felicity's go-to) is a warming blend of elderberry juice, manuka honey, ginger, trikatu and thyme. These ingredients each are known for their immune-boosting properties, so together they make a tasty elixir suitable for every member of your family. Use as a preventative if those around you are coming down with colds, or take during a cold to soothe coughs and sore throats.

Mushroom Gold is Joe's favourite way of boosting his Vitamin D during the colder months. The supplements are based on three edible mushrooms – Maitake, Reishi and Shiitake – all rich in Vitamin D, which contributes to the normal function of the immune system. In addition to immune system support, the three mushrooms each offer other health benefits. Maitake is an adaptogen, rich in amino acids and antioxidants, and has been found to lower cholesterol levels. Reishi contains triterpene, mood-boosting compound that may alleviate anxiety. Shiitake can help maintain healthy blood pressure and circulation.

Your free box of Elderberry & Echinacea Tea will offer comforting cups of tea that will support your immune system. Elderberries contain high levels of antioxidants and have been used for centuries to fight colds and flu. Studies continue to reveal their benefits. The echinacea plant is another traditional natural remedy for viruses, with strong anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antiviral properties. Pukka has combined these ingredients with ginger, rosehip, licorice and peppermint to create a delicious blend of tea.
