Health Benefits of Elderberries

 Elderberries are known for their immune enhancing properties and is the "go to" herb for cold and flu. Health Benefits include;

  • They are packed with antioxidants, which help to fight free radicals in the body and keep you healthy overall.
  • Known for their anti-viral properties, they help to prevent colds and the flu.  They also help to inhibit the enzyme flu viruses which penetrate the cell membranes and also prevent the virus from invading respiratory tract cells. When taken early enough, you can prevent a small cold from turning into the full blown flu.
  • Helps to soothe the intestines, and can be helpful for all inflammatory bowel diseases.  They have a very gentle laxative action, which may explain their decongestant properties as well. They also have a mild tonic action to help arrest diarrhea.
  • They can be effective in other ailments such as allergies, hay fever, emphysema, pleurisy, rheumatism, sore throat, and sinusitis.
  • Helps reduce fever by inducing sweating.

Cautions and Side Effects

    I've made about 3 or 4 purchases from the Troom now & I have been satisfied with all the products! Living so far away too, you'd expect for the package to take a while to arrive - but it doesn't. Overall, I may have just found my main source of herbing. ??
