Elderberry Syrup, I call this my magical Natural remedy for colds + flus

There's nothing worse than seeing your little one sick, and in line with the natural medicine ethos, "prevention is always the best", which is why this syrup is perfect to keep handy in your fridge

I make up a big batch of this, and keep it on hand. 1/2 teaspoon daily is great for toddlers for immune system support, or you can also add a little to their oats or in a smoothie

The Health benefits of the elderberry plant are vast and the main benefits, include naturally improving colds, the flu, sinus issues, nerve pain, inflammation, chronic fatigue + allergies

if used within the first 48 hours of onset of symptoms, the extract has actually been found to reduce the duration of the flu with symptoms being relieved on an average of four days earlier

Elberberries are extremely high in antioxidants and higher in flavonoids than blueberries, cranberries, goji berries and blackberries

A double blinded research study, published in the department of virology, at the Hebrew University medical school in Israel, found that During a 1995 Panama flu epidemic, the government actually employed the use of the elderberry to fight the flu, which worked with positive effects

Currently there are many medical research studies looking into the benefits of elberberry syrup, and many modern and alternative medicine companies are producing cold and flu supplementation based on elderberry. These supplements are quiet costly

Try making this at home, and you will find it more beneficial and an amazing potion to keep in your fridge
