With the cold, the risk of getting colds and flus increases. The Winter Months come alongside mild seasonal diseases for which there are no particularly effective modern treatments.
However, natural medicine offers remedies that boost immunity, speed recovery, and lessen the intensity of symptoms, without negative side effects. One of the most popular home remedies, perhaps the most effective, is elderberry syrup.
ELDERBERRY SYRUP BENEFITS
Science has confirmed the properties of elderberry ( Sambucus nigra ). A study by Drs Porter and Bode, published in Phytotherapy Research , conducted with 60 people with the flu, showed that taking 15 ml of elderberry syrup four times a day produces an improvement in symptoms and shortens the duration of the illness 3-4 days.
Other studies have shown that elderberry is also beneficial in a number of disorders:
- Boost cardiovascular health.
- It has strong anti-viral properties
- It has antibiotic properties.
- Stimulates general immunity.
- Improves diuresis and urinary excretion of salts.
- It has an antidepressant effect
- and more!
WHY DO WE RECOMMEND ELDERBERRY SYRUP?
The Versatility of the elder plant makes it effective as several different preparations (capsules, tinctures, infusions, ect …), but creating a syrup comes with it’s own advantages. One of the main draws is that when it is combined with honey or maple syrup, it creates a long-lasting product with a very pleasant taste, so much so that it can be used as an ingredient in the preparation of desserts. You’ll have no problem tricking the kiddos into taking it!
THE BEST WAY TO CREATE ELDERBERRY SYRUP (AS FAR AS WE’VE DISCOVERED)
Fresh or dried berries can be used to make elderberry syrup . The dried ones are easier to find online, but the fresh ones can often be sources locally. The Difference in medicinal power is negligible. Be aware that there are similar toxic plants that look like elderberry, so only wildcraft it if you’re confident in your ability to accurately determine the species of the plant you’re collecting.
If you do wind up using fresh elderberries, the amount indicated in our recipe that calls for dry berries should be doubled.
