About Immune Broth: Broths are one of the most nourishing and soothing preparations there are. Easily digestible and delicious, people throughout time have relied on nutritive broths to reinforce the body and uplift the senses. Our Immune Broth is a medley of vibrant, tasty roots and mushrooms ready to be cooked into a broth that is deeply supportive to the immune system. A regularly nourished and well-supported immune system encourages our mental clarity and physical stamina, helping us to feel more grounded, centered, and inwardly confident as we navigate life.

For over 20 years, Avena has offered this incredible blend, providing many people the ease of weaving together their daily herbal wellness routine with their cooking for health practices. Incorporate this blend into your daily soup bowl or cup of miso, especially from autumn throughout the colder winter months, on into the damp days of spring. Some folks find Immune Broth beneficial to use all year-round.

Each bag of Immune Broth comes with clear directions for preparing these grounding and vitalizing herbs into broth, which is then frozen into individual ice cubes for easy use.

Plant Profiles:

  • Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus) - Astragalus is a member of the bean/legume family (Fabaceae) and the root is known for its sweet and vitalizing qualities. Astragalus deeply supports a healthy immune system, lungs, and digestion; encourages healthy digestion of both our food and our life experiences with more grace, inner confidence, and uprightness. Astragalus is considered to be the "queen of the Chi/Qi Tonics" in Chinese Herbal Medicine.
  • Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosis) - A mild-tasting but vital root native to the northern hemisphere. This incredible plant is adaptogenic and a true ally when facing various kinds of stressors. It supports healthy overall energy and physical and mental stamina, and encourages immune wellness.
  • Burdock (Arctium lappa) - A biennial known for its strong and deep tap roots into the earth. This same steady, rooted quality translates to the human body, offering us energetic grounding and fortitude. Gentle, nourishing, and delicious, Burdock has been valued as both food and herb for ages. Lymphatic, liver, and digestive support.
  • Reishi (Ganoderma tsugae) - These mushrooms are gorgeous when encountered in the wild... shiny and red in the sunlight, found on the sides of hemlock tree stumps. Known as "the mushroom of immortality", Reishi may not offer actual immortality, but it is incredibly supportive to the human body and spirit. It reinforces immune, cardiovascular, and nervous system health, while also supporting liver function and overall energy.
  • Shiitake (Lentinula edodes) - Shiitake mushrooms are as delicious as they are beneficial to human health. A perfect example of a food that lives comfortably on the apothecary shelf. Shiitake deeply supports the immune system.
