Winter is coming, which means the flu season is upon us! Our tinctures can help strengthen your immune system and reduce the flu symptoms through its interaction with our body’s endocannabinoids system. Read on to discover how to beat flu season this year.
According to a study by the National Institute of Health, “The endocannabinoid system is considered one of the ‘gate-keepers’ of the immune system, preventing the onset of pathological immune responses.” When attacking a virus, the immune system causes an inflammatory response.
The body’s own endocannabinoids and endocannabinoid system are often not equipped to keep the flu at bay all on their own. Supplementing with our tinctures can help with symptoms typically associated with the common cold by reducing the inflammatory response to infection and strengthening the immune system.
