Do you like natural approaches when it comes to your health and wellness? If that’s the case, you’ll want to read about Elderberry, a powerful berry, that can help you combat the flu this season.
The plant we’re talking about is called, elderberry, and it can help to reduce flu symptoms.
Author of Rodale’s 21st-Century Herbal: A Practical Guide for Healthy Living Using Nature’s Most Powerful Plants, Dr. Michael Balick, suggests using this berry to reduce flu symptoms. Here’s why.
Elderberry, also known as Sambucus, is rich in antioxidants. In fact, elderberry contains twice as many antioxidants as blueberries. These antioxidants are called flavonoids and they can help to stimulate and strengthen the immune system.
Elderberry also has anti-inflammatory compounds called anthocyanin, and these are believed to help reduce the common flu symptoms, such as body aches and pains, as well as fever.
Research has found that this berry gives people a significant improvement from type A and B flu strains.
There are lots of Elberberry juices, candies and treats on the market, but these won’t do much good when it comes to fighting the flu.
Instead, try an Elderberry preparation called Sambucol. It’s the best way to tap into the therapeutic elements of this berry because it’s packed with immune-boosting properties without all the added sugar.
So, the next time you feel the flu coming on, try this powerful plant to strengthen and support your immune system safely and naturally.
