Elderberry Syrup

Here is some great information about the Elderberry-

Used throughout history for its medicinal properties, in ancient Greece, Hippocrates referred to the elderberry as a “medicine chest” for its wide array of health benefits.

Elderberries are also traditionally used for their culinary successes. Packed with nutrients, elderberries are used in a wide range of dishes but primarily in preserves, baking and drinks.

The following properties are commonly found in elderberries:

Antiviral – Elderberries have been shown to reduce the severity of symptoms of the flu virus and common cold by blocking the virus from entering the body's cells. This is also a safe remedy for children.

Immune enhancing – Elderberries can be taken regularly through the cold and flu season to enhance the immune system.

Antioxidant – The powerful elderberry is known to contain polyphenols, a compound with antioxidant properties that have been proven to improve the overall immune system and promote better health.
