Weleda's Organic Blackthorn Elixir is a strengthening tonic that assists in the treatment of fatigue and convalescence, and is especially useful during pregnancy and breast feeding.
Prunus spinosa, commonly known as Blackthorn, has a surplus of vital forces not exhausted in the rapid growth of the plant, making the plant particularly suitable for patients who are exhausted or drained of vitality. Blackthorn berries contain strong antioxidants called OPCs (oligomeric proanthocyanidins) which are thought to encourage increased energy and feelings of wellbeing in exhausted and stressed patients.
It works by helping to stimulate the anabolic (growth) metabolism especially in fatigue conditions and delayed convalescence, anorexia and sclerotic illnesses.
