More Info on Elder Berries:

The standardized, common name for Elder berries is “European elder” while the botanical name is “Sambucus nigra L.” of the Caprifoliaceae Plant Family. Elder is a plant native to most of Europe, North America, and southwest Asia. Its flowers and berries have a long history of use in traditional European medicine. Elder berries have also been used for making preserves, wines, winter cordials, and for adding flavor and color to other wines.

Elder berries support immune health. Many families utilize the proven benefits of Elderberry Syrup to support them specifically during the “flu seasons” and anytime they’ve contracted an illness like the cold or flu. Elder berries naturally contain Vitamins A, B, and C.

“Dr. Madeleine Mumcuoglu, of Hadassah-Hebrew University in Israel found that elderberry disarms the enzyme viruses use to penetrate healthy cells in the lining of the nose and throat. Taken before infection, it prevents infection. Taken after infection, it prevents spread of the virus through the respiratory tract. In a clinical trial, 20% of study subjects reported significant improvement within 24 hours, 70% by 48 hours, and 90% claimed complete cure in three days. In contrast, subjects receiving the placebo required 6 days to recover.”

ORANGE PEEL
”Peels from any member of the Sweet Orange family have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine at least since the writing of the Divine Husbandman's Classic of the Materia Medica, written in the second century BC. The little known fact is that there are substantially more enzymes, flavonoids, and phyto-nutrients in the peel of the Orange rather than the fruit. The peel is where all the essential components accumulate and they may be found in three main sections of the peel; the flavedo, albedo, and oil sacs.”

CHAMOMILLE FLOWERS
”Chamomile is a gentle herb known throughout most of the world which has been used continually for many centuries. It is often ingested as a tea for calming purposes and to soothe the digestive tract, and is mild enough to be administered to babies. Chamomile is soothing to the skin, and is often found in lotions and hair products. It is known in commerce as Matricaria recutita and by its synonym Matricaria chamomilla. Chamomile promotes relaxation and supports digestive health.”

ECHINACEA PURPUREA ROOT
”Echinacea is one of the most widely known herbs in American folk herbalism. Used extensively by traditional herbalists and Native Americans alike in North America for generations, echinacea eventually gained popularity in Europe in the 1900's. One of its main uses is to support healthy immune function, although many of its historical uses were related to topical applications. It is now one of the most available dietary supplements in health food stores and continues to be a subject of many scientific studies investigating its immune support properties. Echinacea supports immune system.”

ROSEHIPS
”Rose hips develop on wild roses as the flowers drop off. The rose hip, also called the rose haw, is actually the fruit of the rose. These fruits are one of the most concentrated sources of vitamin C available.”
-Mountain Rose Herbs

ASTRAGALUS ROOT
”While clinically proven data is lacking, astragalus is widely used in traditional Chinese medicine for a variety of ailments and functions. It is traditionally valued for supporting healthy immune function and has been observed to support the heart in healthy subjects.”
