Elderberry – Tiny Berry, Big Benefits. 

Happy September! I hope everyone is easing into their back-to-school routines and enjoying these warm days before Fall begins.

Along with kids going back to school comes the inevitable colds, runny noses, and sore throats. If you’re looking to combat this seemingly, never-ending cold and flu season, we have just the thing – Elderberry! Elderberry is a tiny berry, that boasts big benefits, and will become your new best friend this cold and flu season.


A Few of the (Many!) Benefits of Elderberry:

  • Antiviral Properties
  • High Vitamin C Content
  • Stimulates the Immune System
  • Natural Diuretic 
  • Anti-Inflammatory Properties 

All the information regarding Elderberry online can be a bit overwhelming, so let’s go over some of the different ways to consume Elderberry that out there and available at FGS.

L to R:

Flora Elderberry Crystals for Kids & Elderberry Crystals (same product, different doses). We love this Elderberry Crystal Powder, no only does it taste great, but it has NO ADDED SUGAR! Mix with water, a smoothie, or your favorite juice for a delicious liquid boost of support for your immune system.

Honey Gardens Elderberry Syrup. This tradiation formula is packed not only with Elderberry, but also with Raw Honey (great for sore throats and coughs!), and Apple Cider Vinegar to help you kick sickness to the curb at the first sign of symptoms.

Megafood Elderberry Gummies. I mean, who doesn’t like gummies? These delicious little gummies are free of any nasty ingredients/fillers and instead are a whole-food based gummy, made with Elderberry and Zinc.

Dr. Dunner Sambu and Sambu Guard. These classic products are a fan-favorite, and are full of cold-fighting elderberry. Both are syrups you can simply drink straight, or dilute with water if you prefer. Sambu contains Elderberry and Eldberyflower Concentrate, while Sambu Guard, in addition to Elderberry, contains Echinacea (an immune-boosting flowering plant) and Vitamin C.

These are just a few of the many Elderberry products FGS has to offer – be sure to check out our tinctures, and capsules as well!

Hopefully this post has given you some insight into the benefits of this powerful, little berry and how essential it can be in helping to keep you and your family healthy during cold and flu season.
