Elderberry syrup has been around for ages and used as an immune booster due to its high levels of vitamin C and antioxidants. A study from 2009 proves what many of us have believed all along to be true. Elderberry syrup can actually cut your flu symptoms in half, significantly reducing fever, muscle aches, headaches and nasal congestion within 24 hours. In a more recent 2016 study, the same can now be said about treating the common cold. Luckily, elderberry syrup is relatively inexpensive and easily attainable. We buy elderberry syrup for our toddler on Amazon and give to him on a pretty regular basis during the winter months and double up the dosage at the first sign of a cold. We have seen it take affect multiple times, preventing the cold from ever rearing its ugly head (other than the sniffles for a day or two).
Preventative measures are important, so other than elderberry syrup we also follow this regimen during cold and flu season: We juice regularly especially at the onset of a cold, REGULAR ADJUSTMENTS, vitamin D drops, regular exercise and healthy eating.
