When it comes to treating colds, flu and upper respiratory issues, Elderberry Syrup is my favourite herbal medicine. Our family have been using elderberries for years with fantastic results. We take it at the first sign of a viral illness. Elderberries pack a punch when it comes to the cold and flu virus and have been used for thousands of years as food and medicine and even today it is recognized as one of the most powerful herbs in preventing and treating colds and influenza.
Elderberries inhibit neuraminidase, an enzyme that viruses use to spread from one cell to another. This means that Elderberries can potentially prevent viruses from spreading and therefore might help the immune system to fight off illness.
Elderberry has benefits that goes beyond only using them for viral illnesses. They are particularly good for breaking fevers, healthy skin, prevent upper respiratory infections and will shorten the duration of a cold or flu and stimulate the immune system to help our bodies fight the cold and flu virus.
