Immunity Tonic 200 ml
The main ingredient in the Wild Dispensary Immunity Tonic centers on elderberry (Sambucus nigra), a plant that has traditionally been used to boost immunity, and to ease the symptoms of colds and flu.
As well as elderberry, the Immunity Tonic contains wild-harvested manuka leaf (Leptospermum scoparium).
Our Immunity Tonic also includes a range of powerful traditional medicinal spices: ginger, cinnamon and star anise. These spices work with elderberry and manuka to create a pleasant tasting and highly effective herbal tonic.
- Elderberries are high in antioxidants, vitamins A and C and are also anti-viral.
- Elderberries contain natural chemical compounds called anthocyanidins, which are known for immunostimulant effects.
- Numerous scientific studies on elderberry confirm the traditional use as a remedy to combat cold and flu symptoms. Recent research suggests elderberry can shorten the duration of cold and flu- like symptoms by an average of four days.
- Manuka has a range of anti-bacterial properties and has a long heritage of traditional use by Māori.

Harvesting elderberries in Otago in late summer.
Elder trees thrive in Otago. We watch and wait and then hand pick the berries when they are plump and juicy. We makes sure that the berries are at their most potent, and take similar care when harvesting all our herbs.
