Have you ever tried elderberry syrup?? I learned about elderberry syrup about a year ago and I completely fell in love with it! First of all I love the sweet, fruity, and spicy taste that it comes with & second of all I love and adore how it protects myself and my husband from getting the flu! During the winter months I do my best to have more bone broth and to eat less sugars in order to also help my immune system boost way up!!
Elderberry syrup has been used for years in warding off illness' like the flu, strep throat, sinus infections, congestion, respiratory infections, the common cold and much more. It is most well known for protecting from the flu. Some people use it for extreme constipation (as health problems begin in the gut), for nerve pain, to increase urine output, and many other things. It boosts the immune system better than most supplements.
Elderberry syrup is full of nutrients: Vitamins A, C, & E, Beta- Carotene, Iron, Potassium, Phosphorus, Bioflavonoids, and Antioxidants. It also has natural anti-viral properties. Even stronger than the blueberry!
Elderberry syrup usually includes the amazing elderberry, raw honey, cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, ginger, and allspice. Raw honey has amazing properties which includes, antioxidants, enzymes, minerals. The minerals it includes are iron, zinc, potassium, calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, and selenium. Cinnamon is amazing for blood pressure and blood sugar among many other things along with clove. Ginger is amazing for sinus infections, nausea, and much more as well.
I add it to homemade kombucha and even take plain ole shots of it. I have not had the flu or a cold since I started taking it !
