Supports Healthy Defenses.
Urban Moonshine's Certified Organic Immune Tonic is an herbal tonic that combines a variety of immune-toning herbs and medicinal mushrooms to ensure that your immune system is functioning optimally. The tonic can be used to return your immune system to a healthy state of balance. Prevention is the best way to stay healthy and strong. Our immune system evolved by being exposed not only to disease-causing germs, but also a variety of plants. These days, we've overdone the fight against germs (leading to more allergies and asthma, for instance). At the same time, we've neglected the use of immune-toning plants. Fight the bugs, sure but tonify the field too!
This Immune Tonic is great for relatively healthy folks who want to strengthen their immune system to better withstand upcoming seasonal illness, regular immune system challenges at work or in the community. Also can be used to help rebuild and replenish depleted immune system during recovery.
Reishi This mushroom is unique in its ability to support a balanced immune response, which is part of the reason why it is featured in our Aller-Blast formula. Herbalists rely on this mushroom to evoke a calm response to life's everyday stressors- be they physical or emotional. It helps to support healthy energy levels and makes for an all-around excellent tonic to have on your side, which is why its revered as a staple in traditional Chinese health formulas. If you consume a healthy diet and your blood glucose levels are in the normal range, reishi could help support continued healthy glucose levels. This mushroom grows from the stumps of decaying trees throughout temperate regions of the world, which provides us a window into its vitality and its potent place in the life cycle. Reishi feeds on death to bring us a thriving, vital life. Our thorough, multi-step reishi extraction process ensures you receive the whole host of benefits it has to offer your health.
Maitake Mushroom Often referred to in the United States by its common name "Hen of the Woods", this forest-dwelling mushroom is much more than just a culinary delight sought by savvy fungal foragers. It can act as a real corner stone for a healthy immune system and is traditionally used to support a balanced immune response. If you consume a healthy diet and your blood glucose levels are in the normal range, maitake could help support continued healthy glucose levels. Used widely in Japan and China for its many health benefits, maitake translates in Japanese to "dancing mushroom". It is often prepared as a food and in broths. We like using it as an extract, as well, because our thorough double-extraction process ensures the availability of all its beneficial constituents.
Licorice Root The same root that flavors and sweetens our confections is a great boon to maintaining good health as well. Licorice is highly prized by herbalists for too many reasons to count. One area where it particularly shines is in promoting optimal respiratory function. Moistening licorice comforts and is powerful, yet gentle. Its influence in maintaining healthy digestive function is similarly comforting, where it provides relief from occasional acid indigestion. When taken regularly as a tonic, it supports our resilience to occasional stress and supports healthy immunity. Any way you look at it, licorice is bound to increase your vitality and invite you to live your daily life rooted in comfort. It is important to mention that while licorice is generally safe for short term use, it is not recommended for use in pregnancy. It should be avoided by individuals with hypertension, hypokalemia, edema or kidney, liver or cardiovascular disease.
Ginger This tropical rhizome has long been used in teas, food and herbal preparations, and we know why. Ginger's taste is spicy but earthy, and the warmth it brings to our mouth radiates throughout the body. It is superb at supporting circulation and directing our body's attention to the places that need healthy maintenance. Spices like ginger that help warm us up can also help us break a sweat when we are ready to cool down. What makes this plant even more impressive is that ti can act as a pleasant, supportive herb to our body's immune function, too.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How should I use the Immune Tonic?
A. Take 1/2 teaspoon (2.5mL) 2-5 times per day straight or in a bit of water. Take lovingly with gratitude for your health! Tonics build health over time and are not meant to provide instant relief of illness. We encourage you to embrace your tonic as a part of a regular regime to build radiant health!
Q. Are these tonics safe?
A. Urban Moonshine strives to make products that are safe & effective. They steer clear of herbs that are widely contraindicated so that most folks can safely use our products. Be sure to stay within the recommended serving size. If you have any specific medical concerns, please consult with a holistic practitioner or your doctor before starting a new supplement regime! Also, please note that these products contain alcohol (see below).
Q. Why is there alcohol in these products?
A. The herbalists at Urban Moonshine feel that alcohol is the best way to extract and preserve the chemical constituents of the herbs we love. They use organic, gluten-free cane alcohol. This is a traditional method of making tinctures, and it gives the products the bets taste and longest shelf life possible. There is a very low amount of alcohol in each serving when you consider the dose of the product and the percentage of alcohol (1/4 tsp of the bitters at 30-35% alcohol is about 1/12 tsp alcohol- just a few drops!).
Q. Is there gluten in these products?
A. No! Urban Moonshine Bitters and Tonics are made with 100% Certified Organic Cane Alcohol, which is naturally a gluten-free alternative to commonly used grain alcohol. It is used for its quality, taste, and extraction excellence! We're delighted that there are no Genetically Modified Organisms in these products either-no GMOs!
Q. Can I use the herbal tonics while pregnant and/or breastfeeding?
A. Immune Tonic (along with Energy Tonic and Joy Tonic) Are all NOT for use during pregnancy. These herbal tonics can be used with caution during lactation; please stay within the recommended dosage and consult your healthcare practitioner.
Q. Are Urban Moonshine products safe for children?
A. Yes! All of our products are safe for children over 2 years old, as long as the dose is sized-down according to their weight. The recommended serving sizes on the bottles are for 150 lb. adults, so just divide your child's weight to find the correct ration and then apply that same ratio to the serving size.
Q. What is the shelf life of the herbal tonics? Do I need to refrigerate my bottle?
A. The Urban Moonshine herbal tonic products are good for 3-5 years after blending, depending on storage conditions (ideal storage is in a cool, dark place). To determine the blend date: look for the Lot Number on your bottle; it is in the format of numerical digits, then a letter, then 4 more digits. The last 4 digits of this string are the month and year (MMYY) that the product was blended. For example for Lot 143C0615, the lot # is 143C and the blend date is between June 2018-2020. These products do not need to be refrigerated; please store them in a cool, dark place.
Q. Should I take Urban Moonshine products if I am using other supplements or medication?
A. Please seek the advice of your holistic practitioner for indications with other medications.
