Elderberries naturally contain 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.
Elderberries have traditionally been used in the following ways:
*to boost the immune system
*for coughs, colds and flu
*to lower cholesterol
*to improve vision
*to improve heart health
*for bacterial and viral infections like tonsillitis
*to treat arthritis
*as an anti-inflammatory

-Is Elderberry Syrup safe for children?
Yes, Elderberry Syrup is safe for children. Please remember that honey should not be consumed by babies under the age of 1 year. I make Elderberry Syrup suitable for babies under the age of 1 year using Pure Maple Syrup to make the syrup more palatable. Elderberry Syrup can be given to babies once food has been introduced, feeding is well established and no intolerances to berries have been noted.
-Is Elderberry Syrup safe to take while pregnant or breastfeeding?
I always instruct to consult with your healthcare practitioner before use. Elderberry Syrup is not FDA approved and is categorized by DHEC as a food product; 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.
