What is Elderberry?

Wondering what you can give to help your kids fight off those nasty winter illnesses?
Elderberry has been used for centuries to treat colds, influenza and sinus infections.
Elderberry has a soothing effect on coughs and congestion and can help expel mucous. It promotes a strong immune defense and a healthy respiratory system to help fight off upper respiratory infections.
Elderberry also has anti-viral properties that have even been shown to decrease influenza symptoms! Studies have shown it can decrease influenza symptoms by 3-4 days. Elderberry is not indicated under the age of 2, so talk to your child's provider for dosing recommendations.
Elderberry syrup is available at both the Oconomowoc and Delafield offices.
