Make Your Own Elderberry Syrup

3 posts in this topic

For those who would like to make your own elderberry syrup to help you fight the flu, here is a simple recipe to follow.


First, purchase some dried organic elderberry from a reputable source.


Remove any pale or unripe looking berries, and stems. This will remove the bitterness and mildly toxic berries. 


Simmer in a little water for about 30 minutes, this will also reduce toxicity.


Lightly mash up the berries and water and strain.


Add some honey or sugar to taste and now you have your very own elderberry syrup.


Store in a refrigerator, and it should keep for a few months.

For those who are not aware, I would like to share the other health benefits that the Elderberry Syrup could provide to you.


1. Antiviral  - The Elderberry Syrup may reduce the duration and severity of your next cold or flu by decreasing  congestion and increasing sweating, which helps your body rid itself of infection.


2. Antibacterial - Bacterial infections such as H.pylori, the bacterium that causes stomach ulcers, may respond well to treatment with elderberry extract. 


3. Antioxidant - Antioxidant properties of elderberry help protect cells from oxidative damage that can lead to cancer. Elderberry possesses among the highest levels of antioxidants of all berries and small fruits.


4. Anticancer - Elderberry contains proteins that inactivate certain types of cell reproduction and may offer anticancer benefits. The elderberry proteins are less toxic than other proteins, such as ricin, a highly toxic derivative of the castor oil plant, and represent a viable lower-risk option for cancer treatment and prevention.


5. Blood Sugar and Fat - A compound in Elderberry, called ursolic acid, may help regulate blood sugar and discourage fat storage. Researchers also concluded that elderberry extract may offer a natural means to favorably alter metabolism to help decrease the risk for obesity and diabetes.
