One of the best ways to enhance your immunity is elderberry syrup – and our very own Tara Scarborough crafts her own blend – now available in the WYC apothecary!
Taking elderberry syrup can support your immune system anytime you’re in need of a boost: it has been shown to reduce the length and severity of colds and flu.
“Researchers also have found that people who have taken elderberries have higher levels of antibodies against the influenza virus, showing that not only may the berry be able to treat flu symptoms, it may also be able to prevent influenza infection.” (Pharmacy Times > Elderberry Research)
We’re selling Tara’s homemade elderberry syrup for $15 for an 8 ounce jar, which is less expensive than Amazon or local stores – and hers isn’t bitter like some other brands. In fact, Tara’s blend tastes delicious: your kiddos may just start asking for it when they’re feeling funky! 🙂
Adults: 1/2 – 1 tsp daily
Children: 5 – 15 mL
May increase to a max of 6 daily doses upon first signs of illness

// At this time, not enough is known about the safety of using elderberry during pregnancy and breast-feeding. If you’re pregnant and/or nursing, stay on the safe side and avoid use.
// Elderberry might cause the immune system to become more active, and this could increase the symptoms of autoimmune diseases. If you have an autoimmune condition (such as MS, lupus, rhematoid arthritis, Hashimotos, etc; it’s best to avoid using elderberry.
