WHAT IS ELDERBERRY AND WHAT ARE ITS BENEFITS?
Elderberry is a plant that is most highly recognized as a natural health remedy, combating colds, allergies and the dreaded flu. All of our elderberry products are made from the dried berries of the Sambucus Nigra plant. These berries are naturally high in immune-boosting compounds that are specifically shown to help beat the cold and flu more quickly. Health benefits of the elder plant include naturally improving colds, the flu, sinus issues, nerve pain, inflammation, chronic fatigue, allergies and constipation.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I TAKE ELDERBERRY AND HOW MUCH IS ONE DOSE?
We always recommend to talk with your doctor and do your own research when it comes to using elderberry. Some of our customers take it preventatively year-round, others take it only when they are sick, just like medicine. An adult dose is approximately one tablespoon and a child dose is approximately one teaspoon. You can take elderberry once a day or up to three times daily if actively fighting a cold or flu.
WHAT MAKES YOUR ELDERBERRY PRODUCTS DIFFERENT FROM THE KIND I CAN BUY AT THE GROCERY STORE?
Two things distinguish us from store-bought elderberry syrup: ingredients and cost. As opposed to glucose syrup and other additives, we use raw, local honey in our syrup which has natural enzymes proven to improve seasonal allergies upon consistent use. Also, we don't add preservatives to our syrup, and our syrup is roughly 1/2 of the cost of store-bought elderberry syrup.
HOW DO I STORE MY ELDERBERRY SYRUP AND HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Our elderberry syrup will last approximately 30-60 days in the refrigerator. You can also freeze our elderberry syrup in ice cube trays for up to 6-8 months and thaw out smaller amounts as necessary. This is a great option for those families who do not intend to use elderberry syrup preventatively on a daily basis.
WHERE ARE YOUR GUMMIES?
Our ElderBEARies (AKA gummy bears) have been discontinued while we work hard to perfect our recipe. We will update our website and Facebook Page when they are available again!

The suggested quantities are based on each family member taking their suggested dosage of elderberry syrup once daily and to allow the family to use up that quantity in the 30-60 day shelf life of our syrup.

We always recommend checking with your physician before beginning any health regime.

We recommend to our customers to do your research, ask your doctor and use our syrup how it best fits you and your family's needs.
