Echinacea + Elderberry Tea Recipe
It’s widely known that echinacea is a powerful immune supporter, but what do you know about elderberries? Combine these two for some wonderful results! What makes elderberry syrup so amazing is that it helps prevent colds and influenza. In fact, elderberry syrup has been shown to prevent against 10 strains of influenza! To put that in perspective, the flu vaccine is designed to protect against a few strains. This elderberry syrup is not messing around!
But, it gets even better than that! Elderberries don’t just prevent you from getting sick, they support you well in case you do get sick! Isn’t that amazing?!
