Elderberry syrup is an effective botanical for preventing - and shortening the duration of - the common cold and flu. This antioxidant-packed berry contains vitamin C, A and minerals.
To support the immune system, take elderberry syrup regularly throughout the fall and winter months. It is safe for the whole family - including kiddos and pregnant or nursing mamas. If you do get a cold or the flu, you can ramp up the dose (see below) to shorten the duration of your illness.
