Elderberries are a rich source of vitamins A and C, which are crucial in helping the body maintain optimal health.  More importantly taking a spoonful a day will boost your immune system by increasing antioxidant levels.  Fight your cold symptoms.  Elderberry syrup makes colds and other upper respiratory symptoms more tolerable by reducing mucous secretions and swelling of the respiratory passages.  Translated?  Easier to breath and soothes a cough.  If you would like to make your own syrup…..  I ordered my Elderberries from Amazon Frontier Natural Products.  If you are too busy and can’t add one more thing to your to do list…..I have heard that Walmart carries Elderberry Syrup.

On their own Elderberries are not the greatest tasting berries.  To sweeten the pot I added some blueberries and Agave nectar.  Now that’s a syrup I am happy to have every day!

  1. I started making this about a year ago, and it has been awesome! My husband had several coworkers get the flu, and he wasn’t feeling so great himself, so he came home and took some, and managed to skip the sickness everyone else was getting!
