The ancient Egyptians knew it.

Your great aunt Mary knew it.

And thanks to the focused efforts of several researchers, the medical community is beginning to catch up to what people around the world have known for centuries...

...elderberries are a health and wellness powerhouse.  

Keep Your Immune System Up as the Temperature Goes Down

As we inch closer to the days of apple picking, afternoon hay rides, and late nights cuddled up by the fireplace, it’s also time to start thinking of ways to support your health as everyone heads inside for the cold months ahead.

Elderberries have been around for a very long time and way before there was the science to back it, the health benefits of elderberries were well-known by the people who used them.

Fortunately, study after study is beginning to surface that supports its efficacy, and that makes the decision to incorporate the health benefits of elderberries into your daily life feel like a no-brainer.


What The Science Says

In a 2004 study in Norway, researchers gathered a small group of people who were experiencing what they described as “influenza-like symptoms.”

These people were then put through the holy grail (and most reliable) of research studies—a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study.

One group was given a small dose of elderberry syrup, 4 times a day. The other was given a placebo syrup. Both groups were asked to record their symptoms as they progressed through the study.

And what did the researchers discover?

Those who took the elderberry syrup experienced relief from their symptoms 4 days faster than those who received the placebo.

Even though the study group was small in size, these results highlight the need for more extensive research. But until then, you can still start experiencing the benefits for yourself. 

In this post, we’re going to talk about 3 of our favorite (and easy!) ways that you can include more elderberries in your life that not only taste good but will keep your immune system running on high even when the temps outside start to fall.

COST.

But what I can tell you is that cost doesn’t have to stop you and your family from experiencing it’s benefits.
