Elderberries are a true superfood with high amounts of vitamins C, A and B, as well as quercetin, flavonoids, tannins, amino acids, and anthocyanins. They are known to possess powerful antioxidant properties which help aid in immune, eye, and heart health, as well as lowering cholesterol and treating flu, coughs, viral and bacterial infections. There are many ways to consume dried wild elderberries. Our favorite is to make them into a syrup with some ginger and honey. You can add this syrup to your daily smoothies for a health boost, or to some sparkling water for a refreshing, delicious and healthy soda. Enjoy!
