Ugh…wintry cold season, icky sicky feelings, runny noses, coughs, germs, you name it, it’s here. G R O S S. What more can I say? It’s no wonder then that, as a parent, I try to look for different ways to keep my child healthy and well despite the changing temperatures and influx of germie wormies. Sleep more, eat well, washing hands, coughing in to your elbow, you know all that stuff but if I can get some extra help, I will.

Enter St. Francis Herb Farm Deep Immune Kids. Well, that’s quite the tongue twister. Now, I didn’t stumble upon this product on my own. I went to my local trusted health food store, asked a bunch of questions and St. Francis Herb Farm Deep Immune Kids is what the staff recommended. It sounded simple enough to use and offered an extra immune boost for my child so I took it home with me.


Product Review: What ingredients are in St. Francis Herb Farm Deep Immune Kids?

thingsthatwedo.com - st francis herb farm deep immune kids tinctureHere are the ingredients listed on the bottle of St. Francis Herb Farm Deep Immune Kids: medicinal Ingredients: Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus, root) 0.35 ml (1:4, QCE 87.5 mg) Codonopsis (Codonopsis pilosula, root) 0.35 ml (1:4, QCE 87.5 mg)

Non-Medicinal Ingredients: Distilled water, Grain alcohol, Sweet whey, Vegetable glycerine.

Point to note: the herbs used in St. Francis Herb Farm Deep Immune Kids are certified organic.

I can’t comment on this ingredient list because quite frankly I don’t have the knowledge to make a comment. I know of astragalus and its beneficial properties but the rest is new to me. So, for this product, I really relied on the recommendation of the health store staff who have all this knowledge rolling off their tongues.


Product Test: Does St. Francis Herb Farm Deep Immune Kids work?

thingsthatwedo.com - st francis herb farm deep immune kids tinctureAt the time of this review, I have to be honest and say “I don’t know”. Using St. Francis Herb Farm Deep Immune Kids seems simple enough. Basically, it comes with a liquid dropper. I’m supposed to get the recommended dosage and my big kid can take it either with a little water or juice on an empty stomach. She should take it twice a day.

It sounds simple enough until we actually tried to follow the instructions in real life. I don’t think we ever managed to do it twice a day and I know for certain that I never gave my big kid the full dose.

With this being a completely new concoction, I just never got the nerve to give her the full dosage. I wanted to slowly ease her body in to it in case she might react or be sensitive to the components. The thing is, after about a week of taking the St. Francis Herb Farm Deep Immune Kids once a day with half a dose she started complaining that she felt weird. She couldn’t quite pinpoint what it was and we don’t know for sure if the St. Francis Herb Farm Deep Immune Kids was the reason for that ‘weirdness’ but it was one of the newer things we had introduced to her. We cut it out along with the other new things and she went back to her usual self.

One thing I can tell you for sure is that she didn’t really like the taste of St. Francis Herb Farm Deep Immune Kids on its own. She conceded to taking it with a drink of some sort but I can’t say she was a big fan of it either way. I tried it and it does have a strong herbal flavour, not too overpowering but may be tough for young palates to adjust to.


Verdict:

thingsthatwedo.com - st francis herb farm deep immune kids tinctureThis is perhaps an unfair review on the St. Francis Herb Farm Deep Immune Kids product. In the ideal world, my big kid would be taking it twice a day and it would be incorporated into our daily routine with minimal hiccups. Of course, reality doesn’t always turn out the way you’d expect. I personally still like St. Francis Herb Farm Deep Immune Kids and appreciate that it’s out on the market as an alternative for families looking to boost their children’s overall health during this crummy germy season. While it may not work for my big kid, I think St. Francis Herb Farm Deep Immune Kids is still worthwhile for families to consider on top of everything else we do to try and keep everyone healthy and well!
