elderberry summer immune support ~ health is wealth

Posted by

Keeping up with your immune system is equally important during the warmer summer months. And, with the school season right around the corner + seasonal change, our exposure to variations in environment always pose a major impact on our ability to combat the stuff that can make us feel weak, lethargic, or under the weather. 

Elderberry Elixir is our go-to. We love it as 'a chaser' to a shot of Cyclone Cider because of its sweet, syrupy consistency. Like Mary Poppins once sang, 'a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down'. She was right! 

New study explains how elderberries stop the flu virus dead in its tracks. The unique phytochemicals found in elderberries block the virus from entering, or even, attaching to, our healthy cells. When taken preventatively during flu season. Even if the fly has taken hold, the compound prevents the virus from replicating, eliminating symptoms within 48 hours. The researchers used commercially farmed elderberries which turned into a juice serum and were applied to cells before, during, and after they had been infected with the influenza virus. The result was a “potent direct antiviral effect against the flu virus. It inhibits the early stages of an infection by blocking key viral proteins responsible for both the viral attachment and the entry into the host cells.”

Elderberry elixir is effective at fighting the virus at later stages of infection by stimulating infected cells to release chemical messengers that the immune system uses for communication between different cell types.

It is effective for all people, children, adolescents, adults, and elderly; and it tastes great too! This elderberry elixir is a non-alcohol extract, as it is made using vegetable glycerine, which adds another dimension of sweetness to the formula.

Elderberries are powerful little berries that pack a big punch!

Get on the elderberry bandwagon and support your own health naturally with this delicious berry. We offer elixir, syrup & honey! Elderberry honey is a real treat!!
