Unfortunately, cold and flu season is upon us. According to the CDC, 111 million work days and $7 billion are lost each year due to influenza. That says nothing about the number of days of school missed by kids and teens or how many additional days are lost due to colds (which are not necessarily due to the influenza virus).
Elderberry is extremely high in vitamin C, flavonoids & virus-fighting proteins that work together to give your immune system an extra shield against the cold & flu. Taking 1 tsp. to 1 tbsp. of the extract 2X a day can do wonders for your immunity. Its antioxidant activity lowers cholesterol, improve vision, boosts immunity, improves heart health & heals bacterial & viral infections & tonsillitis. Its anthocyanins protect the inner layer of blood vessels from oxidative stress.
