Cold and flu season is typically thought of as during the winter months, but I always seem to catch some virus as the seasons change and the daylight grows longer. I never use over-the-counter medicines, as I trust nature over pharmaceutical companies when it comes to my family’s health.
I have just discovered a new natural health care company offering excellent throat and lung support guided by Rudolf Steiner’s Anthroposophic beliefs.
True Botanica was founded by three doctors.
We create innovative nutraceutical supplements, herbal tinctures, functional foods and natural cosmetics. The blending of unique ingredient mixes with novel manufacturing techniques results in synergistic formulations for a deeper health of body, mind and spirit.
The products are subjected to costly and exhaustive quality assurance tests.
The ingredients for our formulas are carefully sourced from non GMO, biodynamic and organic materials.
The formulas are designed by keeping in mind the best of insights given by the scientist Rudolf Steiner and the latest in modern nutritional technology.
Although I do not agree with all of [amazon_link id=”1855841487″ target=”_blank” ]Steiner’s philosophies[/amazon_link], his thoughts on health and biodynamic agriculture are remarkable. Whenever I see a company has based their products on Steiner’s ideals, I know they are founded on ethics that are truly natural.
We were sent products from two of True Botanica’s line:
Lungroot (menthol or lemon flavored):
LungrootTM is an exceptionally high quality, pelargonium root (rich in umckalin) containing product. The root of Pelargonium sidoides has been known in traditional medicine, and confirmed by modern research, to be a significant support for the immune system and support the health of the lung and upper respiratory tract. Modern European research has also confirmed other beneficial properties, like its ability to help expelling of mucous.
Throat Defense (berry or menthol flavored):
Our mouth, ear, nose and throat are meant to be the first line of immune defense!
They were designed by nature to be a formidable barrier that traps all kinds of bacteria, viruses and other agents trying to enter our bodies.
This “trap-and-destroy” barrier can be weakened by stress, use of antibiotics, heavy exercise, advancing age, and other factors…
With Throat DefenseTM, you can now support this immune barrier with breakthrough, throat-specific Probiotics and other helpful ingredients like xylitol and trace minerals.
The BLIS K12 Probiotics have a dual function: they discharge bacteria- fighting proteins and also replenish the desirable normal cells in the lining of your mouth, crowding out and making it more difficult for the “outside” invaders to establish themselves.
It turns out the BLIS K12 probiotics also fight the growth of those bacteria that cause malodor, the bad breath that we want to avoid.
The berry flavors are popular with kids. The throat defense is meant to be used daily, like any good probiotic, whereas, the lungroot is to be used in response to illness.
Both of these products are free of common allergens like gluten, dairy, eggs, fish, and soy.
True Botanica also supports the True Botanica Foundation: “a not for profit organization in order to further research, education and social activities that would enhance the awareness and practice of anthroposophically oriented health care.” The company provides their products to needy families, as well as supports biodynamic farming.
True Botanica follows good manufacturing production (GMP) federal guidelines, so you can trust consistent quality in their products. Each ingredient and product is triple tested to ensure they meet high standards.
I am really excited about discovering True Botanica and hope to try more products in the future!
