Ingestible elixir to support the immune system and alleviate the severity and duration of upper respiratory discomfort / 2 fl oz
Dr. Anna Gold DEFEND herbal tincture was created to naturally boost immunity and defend against colds and viruses using principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
DEFEND has, at its base, a formula called “Jade Windscreen,” which has been TCM’s go-to remedy for protection against viruses since 1694. Its name comes from the function of the formula: to form a protective screen around the body, shielding it from pathogens. In clinical studies, Jade Windscreen has been shown to have antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and immunoregulatory effects, and it has been used during recent viral outbreaks in China for its antiviral and antibacterial properties.
Dr. Anna Gold’s proprietary formula also features Burdock fruit, Licorice, and Balloon-flower root to support healthy lung function. Herbs such as Schizonepeta, Forsythia, and Lonicera add further support, clearing discomfort in the throat and sinuses during early-stage infection.
This gentle yet effective immune tonic can be used over the long term to support a healthy immune response, and it can also benefit those with early stage colds and mild seasonal allergies. Each bottle lasts about a month when taken once daily for immune support.
