Taproot Medicine Stabilizing Syrup

8 oz. bottle

A daily tonic for busy humans. Stabilizing syrup is a honey-based tonic made with adaptogenic herbs. An adaptogen is a plant that increases the body’s resistance to damaging long-term and environmental stress. When the body goes through a stress response blood sugar levels peak, help us through the stressful moment, and then taper off. Adaptogens help to ‘smooth out’ these changes in blood sugar, which in turn helps us feel less frantic and more flexible. This syrup is made with nourishing adaptogens also known for their immune support, warming spices, and nutritive berries. This tastes good, and makes you feel like a rockstar. Ingredients: Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus), schizandra berry (Schizandra chinensis) reishi, (Ganaderma lucidum), ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), licorice (Glycyrrhoriza glabra), milky oat tops (Avena sativa), nettles (Urtica dioica), rosehips (Rosa spp.), clove, star anise, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, goji berries, honey, filtered well water, maple syrup, a touch o’ brandy, and a wellness wish.

Taproot Medicine Wellness Syrup

8 oz. bottle


If you've been using the Strong Child syrup, don't worry, this is the same formula with one more herb (ginger!) and a bit more reishi. Wellness Syrup is a slightly updated formula that is potent enough for adults and safe for children.

It's meant to be taken during seasonal shifts, at the onset of illness, and for people with compromised immune systems (sleep-deprived, very stressed, elderly, coming off antibiotics). It's alcohol free (honey-based), safe for children, and uber local with Sonoma County honey, elderberry and jujube. It also makes an excellent 'sick drink' combined with apple cider vinegar, hot water, and crushed garlic. Ingredients: rosehip (Rosa spp.), elderberry (Sambucus nigra), milky oat tops (Avena sativa), jujube fruit (Ziziphus jujuba), reishi (Ganaderma lucidum), nettle leaf (Urtica dioica), orange peel, spirulina, ginger, nutritional yeast, cherry concentrate, honey, molasses, a touch o’ vinegar (as a preservative).
