Eleuthero Immune Builder

Siberian ginseng, also known as eleuthero ginseng or eleuthero, is one of the primary tonic herbs, which means it works it's magic over time. It is often combined with other other adaptogens, like panax ginseng, astragalus, or schisandra to build immunity in cold and flu season. The mild, slightly woody taste of eleuthero combines well with ginger which helps to boost its effectiveness.
