Cold and Flu-Busting Gummy Bears
“These flu busting gummy bears combine the immune boost from elderberry syrup with the gut benefits of gelatin for a healthy and delicious way to beat the flu. My kids love these! In fact, that is why the ones in the picture above look a little rough- little hands kept touching them while I was trying to take pictures!”
Elderberries, otherwise known as sambucus, have been used in folk medicine for a very long time for boosting the immune system as well as improving heart health, vision, and cholesterol levels. Recently it’s been getting a surge in popularity as people are seeking more natural ways of improving their health. As a matter of fact, I first heard about elderberry syrup and extracts when my pharmacist aunt recommended them to me. I’ve been using it for a few years now, and I can honestly say by experience that sambucus really has helped my family’s and my health. It’s definitely shortened the duration and severity of colds in our household and I’m pretty sure it’s why my husband (who is much more diligent than me in taking it) hasn’t gotten sick very much at all. However, I’ll be the first to admit that drinking the syrup isn’t my favorite way of taking it. Rather, I’d prefer to take it in a gummy form. So if you want to reap the benefits of sambucus, click on the link below and learn how to make these for yourself. (And just in case you don’t know where to get elderberries, I get mine from amazon.com.)
