Directions

This immunity-stimulating syrup is an herbal must-have for keeping colds away during the winter months. Astragalus' uses date back to ancient China where it was used for strengthening the immune system. Since then, modern science has not only been found it to possess immunostimulant properties - thanks to its richness in astragalus polysaccharides - to prevent microbial infections, but also to help the the body recover from them more quickly. Rose hips, or the seed pots of the rose plant, contain a richness of immunity-boosting vitamin C that surpasses even that of the oranges.

  1. Combine the rose hips, astragalus, and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Then cover and simmer for 20 minutes.(25 minutes)
  2. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool. Strain the mixture through a jelly bag,reserving the liquid.(15 minutes)
  3. Add the sugar to the saucepan and boil the mixture for a further 10 minutes.(10 minutes)
  4. Transfer the syrup into a glass bottle and fasten while it’s still hot.(3 minutes)

Take one tablespoon of this astragalus syrup twice a day for an immunity boost.
