    Everything You Need to Know About Our Subscription Program

    Everything You Need to Know About Our Subscription Program

    One of the many things I LOVE about starting, growing and running this business is giving you guys an inside look into our operations. We may have customers in all 50 states and sell MILLIONS in immune-supporting elderberry products, but we are truly a small business. We have a team of 12 people here in southern Indiana who work SO HARD to make quality products and provide exceptional customer experiences. One of those experiences is our Subscription Program. I created this program almost three years ago to be a convenient way to get our elderberry products on a recurring basis, and it is one of the BEST things about our business. I know you’re busy, so I’ll bullet point everything you need to know:

    • Every product you find on our website will have the choice for “one time purchase” or “Subscribe & Save 10%”
    • Simply select “Subscribe & Save 10%” which will ask you to choose how often you would like to receive that product.
    • After selecting your frequency (i.e. every 2 weeks, one month, etc.), select “Complete Subscription”
    • Finish checking out and you are all set! You’ll receive that product on a recurring basis, saving 10% automatically with every order!
    • Want to change or cancel your subscription? It’s super easy! You’ll first need to create an account HERE. Once you create and activate your account, you’ll login and see a “Manage Subscription” button which will allow you to change your next order date, skip an order, apply a discount or cancel your subscription altogether. 
    • At any point if you need help, someone from our small team of 12 is here to help! Simply email us at info@theelderberryco.com, and we will be there for you :-)

    Our subscribers are the reason we are successful and able to continue growing our business. Now through the end of the year, save an extra 15% (for a total of 25%) off your order when you sign up for a subscription with code FIRST15 at checkout! 

    Thank you for trusting us to empower your family with a natural and effective way to stay healthy and active. Cheers!

    5 Natural Ways to Strengthen Your Immune System

    5 Natural Ways to Strengthen Your Immune System

    The immune system...it’s a hot topic these days, right? Everyone is talking about staying healthy and safe, especially as we enter the colder months of the year. Our families are the most important things to us, and while we can’t necessarily “see” our immune system, we need to care for it as one of our highest priorities when we think about caring for our family. Don’t let your life get so busy that you forget these 5 easy and natural ways to keep your family healthy this winter:

    1. Let them sleep! Aim to give your kiddos, at minimum, 8 hours of sleep...10 is even better. That means to turn off screens at least 1 hour prior to bed and set consistent bedtime and wake up routines. 
    2. Limit sugar. I know, this isn’t a popular one. My kids ask for a “special treat” every night and are shocked when I tell them they can’t have one (what makes it special if you get one every day??). But sugar is the enemy to our immune systems. Cutting back on soda, sweets, candy, baked goods and processed foods in general will put your family at a significant advantage when it comes to strong immune systems. Raw honey is a GREAT alternative (in moderation of course). Here’s our entire line of raw and infused flavored honey. They are so so good.
    3. Put a whole food on every plate. Ok, I’m not the best at eating 100% whole foods but I guarantee you can’t afford NOT to eat whole this winter, as our bodies need these vital nutrients from plants. So as a busy mom, I make it my daily goal to get at least one whole food on everyone’s plate. Our go-to foods? Apples, bananas, bell peppers (red ones are the best!), carrots, broccoli and strawberries. For an amazing smoothie recipe, check out our blog here
    4. Take elderberry daily. Ok, I know this may seem like a shameless plug for my own product, but I’m so serious. Taking elderberry syrup or gummies daily can give your family the support their immune systems need, especially when they may be exposed to illness around them. My kids love both our syrup and gummies, but I try my best to keep them taking the syrup because it contains raw honey that contains natural enzymes to help their bodies fight infection. Just 1 teaspoon or 1 gummy daily for kids, 1 tablespoon or 2-3 gummies daily for adults. It’s so easy and so delicious.
    5. Get outside and get moving. Our Vitamin D levels tank in the winter so getting at least 30 minutes of direct sunlight can help. Also, a goal to get at least 30 minutes of exercise 3x weekly can significantly support your body’s overall health and wellness. For your kiddos, that means a walk to the park, a game of tag in the front yard...get creative! One of my good friends has an amazing woman-owned small business called OKO Weekly where you can get videos of workouts designed specifically for kids age 3-5 years old. For those cold winter months, it’s the perfect way to make sure your kids are getting regular exercise!

    I’m a BIG proponent of not overloading our schedules and responsibilities with unnecessary busy-work, so I hope these 5 natural ways to build strong immune systems don’t feel like extra work, but empowering ideas to help your family to experience a healthy winter. As always, feel free to comment below with any other tips you use to keep your family healthy. Happy fall everyone!
