Back to School with True Botanica: Teacher Must-Haves

Part 3: Teacher Must-Haves

This year, we are excited to kickoff a multi-part Back to School Blog Series! In case you missed our previous posts, check out our Student Survival Guide and Parent Must-Haves

We know how important it is for teachers to stay healthy during the busy school year. Here are a few of our suggestions of Back to School natural Products for teachers to keep you healthy and present this year!

Lung Root:
A full spectrum, completely non-alcoholic product containing high quality pelargonium root. The root of Pelargonium sidoides has been known in traditional medicine, and confirmed by modern research, to be a significant support for the immune system and support the health of the lung and upper respiratory tract. Available in Lemon and Menthol.

Throat Defense:
Contains mouth specific probiotics to support the natural respiratory barrier against airborne microbes. The probiotics, BLIS K12, have a dual function: they discharge bacteria-fighting proteins AND replenish the desirable normal cells in the lining of the mouth, crowding out and making it more difficult for the “outside” invaders to establish themselves. Throat Defense comes in two flavors: Berry and Menthol

Prunus Spinosa 6X
This refreshing restoring tonic provides relief, especially from exhaustion. As with all of our OTC Homeopathic/Anthroposophic products, the Kolisko Validation test has been used to show how the final product is significantly greater than a water control!

Strophanthus Kombe 6X
This product helps provide relief against stress, especially exam anxiety (important not just for students, but for teachers too!)

Hawthorn Plus
This product contains organic Hawthorn berry plus the salts of the hawthorn plant. Hawthorn helps keep the heart strong and healthy and supports a normal blood pressure. It also lessens fatigue by invigorating the cardiovascular system.

Multivitamins Plus:
Like many multivitamins it delivers over 100% of the recommended daily dietary needs for most vitamins and basic mineral – but what makes ours stand out is we also include rhythmically prepared herbs, trace minerals and spices that enhance the absorption and utilization of all nutrients. Plus, we include the energizing herb Guarana.

Vital Mind AM
We know the importance of teachers needing to be on their toes, so stay sharp throughout the year, this ginseng containing formula can help you do just that! Ginseng is known for improving functions like: vitality, concentration, attention accuracy, arithmetic ability, working memory speed and more.

Coffee/Pero Products
The newest addition to the True Botanica product line, we are excited to now offer Fresh Roasted Coffee and Decaf Coffee and Regular and Extra Dark Roast Pero! If coffee/pero is already a part of your morning routine, consider purchasing ours, as the profits directly support anthroposophic medical research!

Hand & Body Cream
This hypoallergenic, natural cream provides a deep lasting most moisturizing and renewing effect that absorbs quickly and won’t leave behind a greasy residue.

Students with Throat Defense bottles

Let’s start with our Student Survival Guide, a list of products essential for helping your student succeed in and outside of the classroom. 

Throat Defense:
Contains mouth specific probiotics to support the natural respiratory barrier against airborne microbes. The probiotics, BLIS K12, have a dual function: they discharge bacteria-fighting proteins AND replenish the desirable normal cells in the lining of the mouth, crowding out and making it more difficult for the “outside” invaders to establish themselves. Throat Defense comes in two flavors: Berry and Menthol

Lung Root:
A full spectrum, completely non-alcoholic product containing high quality pelargonium root. The root of Pelargonium sidoides has been known in traditional medicine, and confirmed by modern research, to be a significant support for the immune system and support the health of the lung and upper respiratory tract. Available in Lemon and Menthol.

Elderberry Thyme Syrup:
Our formula contains pure, organic elderberry syrup. There’s nothing like it to keep the immune system going and provide a soothing effect in times of temporary coughs and congestions.

Multivitamins Plus:
Like many multivitamins it delivers over 100% of the recommended daily dietary needs for most vitamins and basic mineral – but what makes ours stand out is we also include rhythmically prepared herbs, trace minerals and spices that enhance the absorption and utilization of all nutrients. Plus, we include the energizing herb Guarana.

Berberine Plus
This is the most full spectrum barberry root formula available. Not only does it contain high amounts of the naturally occurring berberine, it also includes rhythmically prepared ashes and salts derived from the root. This product promotes increased workout and exercise effectiveness, an “upbeat mood,” a strong heart and normal sugar level.

Vital Mind AM
Help your student stay sharp this year with this Ginseng containing formula. Ginseng is known for improving functions like: vitality, concentration, attention accuracy, arithmetic ability, working memory speed and more.

First Ever True Botanica Foundation Webinar

This week the non-profit True Botanica Foundation hosted its first ever webinar, titled Pelargonium Root Extracts — Novel Immune Respiratory Protection. The webinar featured Pelargonium sidoides, a plant found in South Africa. The plant itself is very interesting. Its branches stay underground, giving it an ability to resist the stresses of nature, making it an ideal ingredient to support the body against the stresses of winter.

The roots of this plant grow even thicker as the plant matures.

Extracts of the Pelargonium root have been used in traditional South African folk heaing against upper respiratory infections, coughs, tuberculosis and gastrointestinal complaints. More recently, however, controlled, clinical studies in Europe have shown that these extracts help relieve the unpleasant symptoms associated with colds and flus, speed up recovery time, have an excellent safety profile and assist in decreasing the duration and severity of bronchitis.

But how exactly, you ask, does it do that? Research has shown that Pelargonium accelerates ciliary beat frequency. Ciliary play an important role in moving mucous out of the body. In this way, Pelargonium extracts assist in the body’s defense of the mucociliary system.

Want to learn more about how and why Pelargonium provides exceptional immune support? Check out this article on Pelargonium sidoides root extracts. You can also visit the True Botanica Foundation website for more extensive research articles on Pelargonium and other unique ingredients. We hope to have the webinar available for those who missed it, so stay tuned for updates.
