Holidays, Sugar and the Power of Elderberries

Holidays, Sugar and the Power of Elderberries

By Marley Wells

Halloween, Thanksgiving and….yes, CHRISTMAS are just around the corner! As I’m sure all you mommas know, life is a balancing act. Having fun, but also disciplining and training our kids; pouring yourself out, but also filling yourself up. This time of year, it can be a challenge to balance enjoying the present moment of feasting with family and friends while still trying to remain health-minded.

First and foremost: the answer is not restriction! Just as one meal doesn’t magically make you the pinnacle of health, one meal won’t destroy your wellness. You can absolutely feel free to enjoy a decadent meal (or Halloween candy, or Christmas cookies) with loved ones– just be intentional with it! Few things enrich our lives like breaking bread together. 

With that being said, it is no secret that sugar reduces our bodies’ immune response, making you even more susceptible to the seasonal threats already so prevalent during the cold months. As such, it is important to get ahead of it and make sure your immune system is healthy and strong. How can you do this?

Elderberry! Elderberries are high in antioxidants–powerhouse substances that protect not just our immune system, but also heart health, brain health, and more. Our syrup uses both elderberries and aronia berries so that you can get the most immune-boosting strength possible. In addition, we use raw honey and warming spices like clove, ginger, and cinnamon–the perfect Christmas-y flavor combination for these cooler months! At The Elderberry Co, we make our small-batch Elderberry syrup fresh every single week in our shop. This way, we can control every aspect of our production and create the cleanest, most beneficial syrup to keep families healthy and happy. 

So, keep your family healthy this winter while still enjoying your favorite seasonal treats! We are extending our special Fall Clearance sale TODAY ONLY! Visit here to grab some of our customer favorites before they’re gone!
