5 Reasons Why Elderberry Syrup Should Be At the Top of Your Winter Shopping List

You take every precaution getting your home ready for the winter months but you can do the same for your body - use elderberry syrup to boost your immune system and provide you with numerous other health benefits.

We can finally flip our calendars to the month of December. The temperature has dropped and snow is on its way. Preparing for the months ahead, we stock up on salt for the driveway and dig our shovels out of storage. Screen windows are replaced with storm windows, and our thickest fleece blankets are hauled from the attic. Your house is ready… but are you?

An easy fix! Add elderberry syrup to your shopping list. Elderberry Syrup helps protect your body by giving your immune system a boost it needs tackle this cold season.

1. Nourish Immune System
Your immune system prevents disease, so show it some love. Elderberries increase the production of cytokines, proteins that promote and control immune response. A lab in Austria has determined the Elderberry effect on the body’s immune system to be so strong that it is used to help treat anything from flus and colds to debilitating asthma, diabetes, and weight loss.

2. It’s a Big Time Antioxidant
The berries contain a flavonoid known as athocyanins, known to the medical world as a powerful antioxidant that helps prevent cell damage caused by poor diet and stress—both of which are not uncommon around the holidays… think about the holiday cookies and the in-laws.

Further study suggests elderberries possess more antioxidant capacity than either vitamin E or vitamin C.

3. They Help Lower Cholesterol

Austria’s University of Graz found that extract from elderberry syrup reduces the oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. Long story short, LDL cholesterol is implicated in a nasty thing called atherogenesis, a heavy contributor it cardiovascular disease.

4. They Even Improve Vision

Not only are the days are starting to get colder in December; they are also starting to get darker. If you still haven’t been convinced to stock up on Elderberries for the winter, then get this; the antioxidant powers of Elderberry Syrup have also been attributed to improving vision, especially night vision.

5. Great Taste

You might be thinking, “This sounds great but what’s the catch? Will I have to close my eyes and plug my nose as I send this elderberry syrup down the hatch?” No way. Elderberries do all this (and more) while tasting great. The syrup is sweet with a flavor similar to that of blackberries. The only problem you’re going to run into is keeping it all to yourself once you share with your holiday visitors.

We are strong believers in what Elderberries can do and definitely recommend marking the syrup to your shopping list. Doctors use it to help with cancer, cardiovascular disease, and so much more, but you can use it to ward off those nasty, seasonal colds. Get more done this winter and enjoy all the best things this time of year has to offer, starting with a batch of pancakes topped with some Elderberry Syrup.
