Elderberry syrup for winter wellness!

Vitamin C boosting goodness

¾ cup organic dried elderberries

3 cups of pure water

1 organic cinnamon stick

4 whole organic cloves garlic

1 tablespoon organic fresh ginger

1 cup raw honey

Add everything but the honey, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and cover, reduce by half, cool, strain, mix in honey, store in air tight glass container in the fridge.

Super simple and will boost your immunity for a better winter.

this natural remedy definitely goes way back, so it’s no wonder it’s known as one of the top antiviral herbs on the planet.

Health benefits of the elder plant include naturally improving colds, the flu, sinus issues, nerve pain, inflammation, chronic fatigue, allergies, constipation and even cancer. (2) When used within the first 48 hours of onset of symptoms, the extract has actually been found to reduce the duration of the flu with symptoms being relieved on an average of four days earlier. (3) During the 1995 Panama flu epidemic, the government actually employed the use of the elderberry to fight the flu.

It gets better. When it comes antioxidant power, elderberry is higher in flavonoids than blueberries, cranberries, goji berries and blackberries. I’m sure you’re getting the picture that this medicinal berry is a real powerhouse for good health.

So why not make your own?

Blessings

Tegan.
