**OUR MOMMY-TO-BEES SHOULD OPT FOR OUR JUNIPER FREE ELDERBERRY BLEND**
**OUR BABEES UNDER ONE SHOULD ONLY HAVE OUR HONEY FREE
Our tasty take on a time tested classic. A staple in our household, elderberry has been used for its antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties since 400 BC. We mixed other powerful plants like moringa, tumeric, and juniper with raw local honey to create a power packed plant-based syrup. It can be taken daily as a preventative (especially on the onset of cold and flu season or before you travel). It may relieve flu symptoms and/or reduce the length of time the flu lasts when taken by mouth within 48 hours of the first symptoms.
We make every attempt to produce our syrups and ciders when ordered to maximize freshness. Please allow 1-2 extra days on top our your shipping quote to receive your items.
* NOTE on Elderberry and COVID:
In an attempt to reduce the chances of a viral infection, in addition to our other immune supporting recommendations, at the first sign of viral symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath upon exertion, fatigue, body aches, or diarrhea, which early evidence suggests may also be a symptom of COVID-19), we continue to support the judicial use of black elderberry as a component of our complete protocol, along with other supplements, designed to keep the immune system strong and balanced.
We acknowledge the concern of cytokine overstimulation exists; however, we feel that, based on elderberry’s antiviral effects and a long history of use within the practice of integrative medicine, the benefits of use outweigh the currently understood risks.
In one randomized study of 60 adults with flu-like symptoms, those who took 15 mL of the elderberry syrup four times a day saw symptoms clear up on average four days earlier than those who took a placebo syrup. Another study tested its effectiveness in air travelers
Moringa is touted for its high concentration of antioxidants, as well as its ability to lower blood sugar, improve heart health, and reduce inflammation . The bioactive components in the leaves protect against some chronic disease and some studies have found that these compounds may also protect against Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
Juniper berries are high in vitamin C, flavonoid antioxidants, monoterpenes, and coumarins, all of which offer various health benefits like antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
