ALLERGY RELIEF ORGANIC ELDERBERRY SYRUP
I have been frequently asked what I offer for natural allergy relief. So here is a great start to getting some relief from nasal congestion, scratchy throats, itchy eyes, dry coughs and inflammation with an added immunity boost!
***Update!!! Since I started making this new blend back in March, we have had so many customers tell us that this Allergy Relief blend is also very effective for other allergy symptoms caused from sources other than pollen!! Pet Allergies and Pet Dander is another one!!! If you know someone who is allergic to pets/pet dander, this blend has been very effective to help relieve itching and red eyes, sneezing and runny noses!! Just 1 dose after exposure and pet allergy symptoms relieved!! Another interesting discovery has been how effective it is for people who are consistently exposed to black mold either in their home or the work place. Taking just 1 tablespoon a day has helped customers tremendously!

~Rosehips-a perfect additional powerful source of Vitamin C and Antioxidants to give the body an extra immune boost along side the elderberries.
Elderberries naturally contain vitamins A, B, and C and stimulate the immune system. Researchers have found that the complex sugars in elderberries support the immune system in fighting cold and flu by disarming the enzyme viruses use to penetrate healthy cells in the lining of the nose and throat. Taken before infection, it prevents infection. Taken after infection, it prevents spread of the virus through the respiratory tract. In a clinical trial, 20% of study subjects reported significant improvement within 24 hours, 70% by 48 hours, and 90% claimed complete cure in three days. In contrast, subjects receiving the placebo required 6 days to recover.
Elderberry (Sambucus Nigra) has traditionally been used in the following ways:
*to boost the immune system

Elderberry Syrup can be given to babies once food has been introduced, feeding is well established and no intolerance to berries have been noted.
-Is Elderberry Syrup safe to take while pregnant, lactating women and for children?
I always instruct to consult with your healthcare practitioner before use. Elderberry Syrup is considered an Herbal Supplement not FDA approved; therefore it always will have this precaution applied.
-Is there anyone who should not consume Elderberry products?
Yes. Elderberry works by stimulating the immune system. This may cause the immune system to become more active and could increase the symptoms of autoimmune diseases. If you have an autoimmune disease, it’s best to avoid using elderberry. Examples of autoimmune diseases are: Multiple Sclerosis, Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus, Lupus, Scleroderma, Psoriasis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. This is just a brief list of the more common autoimmune disorders. Please consult with your healthcare practitioner if you are being treated for any medical condition and/or taking any medication before use.
