Elderberries - Pain Relieving, Anti-Inflammatory Immune Booster
Elderberries are well known for their immune boosting benefits. But elderberries also contain anthocyanins, known to reduce inflammation. The anthocyanins in elderberries work by inhibiting the production of nitric oxide by the body’s immune cells, which serves as a signaling molecule that triggers inflammation in the body in response to injury or disease. By tempering this response, pain and swelling can be relieved. Elderberries may also be used to treat dental pain and can help with sciatica and neuropathic pain.
Alfalfa - Anti-Inflammatory Pain Reducer Great for Arthritis Symptoms
Alfalfa is a perennial plant that has long been used in traditional medicine to treat a variety of health conditions – including diabetes, high cholesterol, arthritis, urinary tract infections, menstrual problems and many more.
