With flu and cold season upon us and now with the threat of a super virus, it is so important to boost our immune system. We have found that elderberry REALLY helps.
“The common black elderberry (Sambucus nigra) has long been used to reduce the length and severity of flu symptoms and studies. Taking 60 ml a day for adults and 30 ml for children help to facilitate a complete recovery often in three days. Elderberry extract binds to the tiny spikes on a virus protein that are used to pierce and invade healthy cells and destroys them so that the virus is ineffective. ” Ontario Association of Neuropathic Doctors www.orand.org
Elderberry gummies is our favorite way to take elderberry. They need to be taken within 24 hours of flu or cold symptons and usually start taking effect within 2 to 4 days. (That’s what the label says, although, it seems to us that they take effect a lot sooner. I’ve provided a link below to show you what they are and where you can find them.
