Let’s take a look at the ingredients:
We LOVE turmeric here at Binto! The medicinal properties of turmeric have been known for thousands of years, but more recent research has solidified our understanding of its benefits. According to NIH, turmeric works at the cellular level to reduce inflammation, and reduce oxidative stress. It can help manage inflammatory conditions, arthritis, anxiety, and metabolic syndrome. Other studies show that turmeric supports a healthy immune system, improving antibody responses and moderating the activation of your immune cells.
Black Pepper Extract
What is *turmeric* without pepper? We included black pepper extract in The Glow Elixir because curcumin, the main active ingredient in turmeric works best when taken with piperine, the major active component in black pepper. Taking the two together can improve the bioavailability of curcumin by 2000%. This black pepper extract activates the turmeric for maximum immune support.
Elderberry is another supplement that has been used in folk medicine for centuries, and for good reason! It has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic and even antidepressant properties. Supplementing with elderberry extract is a great way to support the health of your immune system. Research has even found that it can help treat the flu and reduce the severity and duration of colds.
Another important antioxidant, elderflower, is similar to elderberry but it is derived from the flower of the plant instead of the fruit. It also helps to fight colds and the flu!
Echinacea is a medicinal herb with properties that stimulate effective immune response and help reduce inflammation. Studies suggest that like turmeric, echinacea works on a cellular level to strengthen your immune cells and fight pathogens. It could also help lower the duration and severity of cold symptoms.
We also included a little water and vegetable glycerin to blend it all together!
How does the tincture work?
To unlock the benefits of our Glow Elixir, we recommend taking a serving of 30-40 drops either once per day to support immune health, or as needed when you feel a cold coming on. You can add it to a drink or take it straight from the dropper! We’re loving the honey herb flavor of this immunity tincture.
Our new Glow Elixir is the perfect wellness gift for anyone looking for a little immune boost this season. You can buy it now for your BFF, your mom, or just to treat yourself! We are always here to answer any questions you may have about our products and your health.
