Is Elderberry Syrup safe during pregnancy?

Is Elderberry Syrup safe during pregnancy?

By Jenny Watson

The first time I had ever heard about Elderberry Syrup was when I asked Facebook, “What are some pregnancy-safe remedies for a cold?” I was newly pregnant for the first time and suffering from a sore throat and stuffy nose. I got all sorts of answers from other mommas, most of which replied “elderberry syrup for sure!”

Any mom can attest to the increase in google searching during pregnancy and newborn days. What are the best prenatal vitamins? When do baby kicks start happening? Is this normal? Is that normal? What medications are safe to take during pregnancy and breastfeeding? The list of questions is endless and the amount of information accessible to us is quite frankly overwhelming. So to all you mommas-to-be, I’d love to empower you to ask the questions and do the research, especially when it comes to what is safe to put into your bodies during pregnancy. 

Now the answer to “Is Elderberry Syrup safe during pregnancy?” isn’t as simple as I’d like it to be. Because I’m not a medical professional, the best answer I can give you is to ask your care provider. But as a friend sitting across the table drinking coffee with you, I’d tell you that my care provider approved it for me and I used Elderberry Syrup in all three of my pregnancies to help keep me and my family healthy and active, especially during the winter months. 

Why Elderberry?

Our Elderberry Syrup is made fresh every week with six natural ingredients: elderberries, aronia berries, ginger root, Ceylon cinnamon, clove and raw honey. Elderberries are a berry plant, sambucus nigra. They are anti inflammatory, anti viral and high in antioxidants. Elderberries have a long history of being a natural way to strengthen immune systems and cutting the duration of colds, flus and allergies. Personally, elderberry syrup is a staple in our house to keep us healthy and active. You can read through our reviews where thousands of customers testify to how our Elderberry Syrup has done the same for them!
