Organic Elderberry Tea is our newest herbal remedy for combating cold & flu. This fruit bearing shrub native to Europe & North America has enjoyed a long history of use in folk medicine. Typically used for its antioxidant properties, the elder berry is known to boost the immune system. The flavonoids in elderberries help prevent the ability of cold and flu viruses from infecting cells and thereby shortening and even preventing the more severe symptoms of these illnesses. Notably, elderberry juice was used as a treatment for flu as recently as 1995 during the Panama flu epidemic. Elderberries contain flavonoids including quercetin, which improves the resistance of cell membranes against destruction by free radicals. Elderberries are also a good source of carotenoids, vitamins A, B & C, and amino acids and may also aid in the reduction of high cholesterol levels.
