Elderberries are amazing for the immune system. See my Nutrient Fact Sheet here. There is already a well-known cough syrup that contains them, this elderberry cordial and cough syrup knocks it out of the park! I have used it for months for my family (kids included), to make Kefir, Gummies and as a cordial with sparkling water. Because this is so concentrated, it will last for ages!
You can take this daily (1/2 tsp to 1 tsp for kids over 1 and 1 Tbsp for adults) or you can take it when you start to feel run down. Or you can use it to make Kefir or Gummies. You could also add some Vitamin D3/K” like this one to the bottle to really pack a punch (add 10 drops to the liquid to get a small Vitamin D kick when using it.
