Nasturtium

While Vitamin C can support normal functions of the immune system, Nasturtium helps support immune response. Useful for breaking up congestion during colds, it is best known for its antibiotic qualities and being one of the best medicinal herbs to act against cold and flu season*. We recommend a healthy dose every day, especially in the colder Autumn and Winter months.

Nasturtium

History and Tradition

Originally from Peru, Nasturtiums weren't introduced to Europe until the 16th century, but the likes of them can be found in paintings by Henri Matisse and Monet's gardens. The name Nasturtium literally means "nose twisted," most likely referring to the peppery tasting mustard-like oil the leaves release when chewed. For this reason, Nasturtiums were commonly used as ingredients on salads. While also delicious, Nasturtiums have been used for hundreds of years for their medicinal purposes. This mustard-like oil contains anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, making it useful for treating and preventing colds and flu. They are an excellent source of flavonoids, vitamin C, and minerals that help support the immune system and other parts of the body*.
