Why take Sambucus, or Elderberry Syrup...
Elderberry is used for its antioxidant activity, to lower cholesterol, to improve vision, to boost the immune system, to improve heart health and for coughs, colds, flu, bacterial and viral infections and tonsillitis. Bioflavonoids and other proteins in the juice destroy the ability of cold and flu viruses to infect a cell.
How much should I take…?
Standard dose is ½ tsp. to 1 tsp. for kids and ½ Tbsp. to 1 Tbsp. for adults. If the flu does strike, take the normal dose every 2-3 hours instead of once a day until symptoms disappear.

Why make your own sambucus, rather than buy store bought…. Ingredients… The most commonly used brand is “Nature’s Way”. Usually purchased at stores or online. Ingredients include, elderberries, fructose, purified water, vegetable source glycerin, natural raspberry flavor and citric acid.
                  Our kit’s ingredients…elderberries, honey, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and water.
Price… Our kit will make seven (7) 3.5 cup batches, 196 ounces at $73 a kit ($58 for a refill)
            The “competitor” 4 ounce bottle for $11.9. This requires exactly 49 bottles to make 196 ounces, or $585.55. Because of a savings of $527.55
Why purchase our kit compared to buying each item separately?
Each item was priced separately online (the way I have been purchasing all these years, until now) the total for the “Kit” is $109.84, the “Refill Kit” is $88.36. Compare this to $73 and $58. Because I was able to buy in bulk and able to access vendor prices, compared to consumer prices.
Lets compare what the annual savings would be...
(I had to do the math three times to make sure I wasn't making a mistake....WOW!!!)
Family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children), requiring 1 Tbs, 1Tbs, 1 Tap, 1Tsp- 8 teaspoons a day is 1.3 ounces. X 365 days= 474 ounces a year. 2.4 kits= $139.20
Same family buying bottled. 474 ozs, requires 118.63 bottles at $8.99 a bottle= $1417.63

An Annual Savings of $1278.43 for a Family of Four

Why do we add the cinnamon, ginger and cloves…
Cinnamon… Chinese medicine and Ayurveda have long revered cinnamon as a superpower used to treat things such as colds, indigestion and cramps and also believed to improve energy, vitality and circulation.
Ginger… Ginger is anti-viral and makes a warming cold and flu remedy. Ginger is a powerful anti-inflammatory herb and there has been much recent interest in its use for joint problems.
Cloves… Clove can act as an antimicrobial agent, killing parasites and bacteria in the digestive tract. Clove use can smooth and relax the inner lining of the intestines, aiding in digestion. It can also aid in quieting upset stomach. Cloves can help the esophagus produce more phlegm and act as an expectorant, making coughs less severe and more productive.

Add water, berries, cinnamon, ginger and cloves to a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and then cover and reduce to a simmer for about 45 minutes to an hour until the liquid has reduced by almost half. At that point, remove from heat and let cool enough to be handled. Pour through a strainer into glass jar or bowl. Discard the elderberries and let the liquid cool to lukewarm. When it is no longer hot, add 1 cup of honey and stir well. When honey is well mixed into the elderberry mixture, pour the syrup into storage cups. Store in the fridge or freezer and take daily for its immune boosting properties.
