We had been buying the Gaia brand and after seeing so many make it I jumped on the bandwagon. It’s so easy to make and so much cheaper!
Elderberry syrup has been around for a very long time and is one of the top antiviral herbs. It is great for boosting the immune system and contains ample amounts of vitamins A, B, and C. It has shown to cut the duration of a viral illness down substantially, which is beneficial for sinus infections and influenza. We have noticed that what colds we do get are over so much quicker since we started this regimen! It is also high in flavonoids, which means they are rich in antioxidants and anti inflammatory properties.
In addition to being a great immune booster, there are reports that it is helpful for many other health conditions. It has been shown to help with inflammation, act as a diuretic, help with blood sugar control, help fight cancer, has laxative effects.
I’m so thankful that there are natural remedies out there that are effective and helps me avoid medications, which has always been my goal.
Be sure you check with your provider before starting something like this as there can be some interactions with other medications and exacerbate some health conditions due to the boost in the immune system.
