Naturally Boost Your Family's Immune System with Elderberry

I received this product for free from Moms Meet to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.

I don't know about you, but this year y'all. I have no words. I have decided to try not to worry about the things I can't control and take of the things I can control. And while there is never one size fits all when it comes to supplements, I have been doing everything I can to boost my family's immune system.

I have known about elderberry helping in to possibly boost immune systems for a while, but I have been reading up on it so much more recently. According to WebMD, the berries and flowers of elderberry are packed with antioxidants and vitamins that may boost your immune system. They can help tame inflammation, lessen stress, and help protect your heart, too. Which might be helpful during these trying times. And some experts recommend elderberry to help prevent and ease cold and flu symptoms which is coming up soon too!

Both the flowers and berries have a long tradition of culinary and folk medicinal uses going back thousands of years. In fact, Hippocrates (often called the father of medicine) called elderberry a medicine chest because of its seemingly endless health benefits and usability. The stem, bark, leaves, flowers, berries, and root extracts of the plant are all used in traditional folk medicine. There are even some elderberry-based recipes dating as far back as Ancient Egypt!

Elderberries are a low-calorie food packed with antioxidants. Elderberies are high in vitamin C, high in dietary fiber, a good source of phenolic acids, a good source of flavonols, rich in anthocyanins, and more. The exact nutritional composition of elderberries depends on the variety of plant, ripeness of the berries, and environmental/climatic conditions.

Sambucol®, the original Black Elderberry extract, provides strong immune system support to help you and your family stay healthy throughout the year. Sambucol® Black Elderberry extract conveniently arms you with some of the best protection nature has to offer. Sambucol® is a unique black elderberry extract rich in immune supporting flavonoids. Sambucol is made from black elderberries which have twice the natural antioxidant capacity of blueberries and more than 50% the overall antioxidant capability of cranberries.

Sambucol Black Elderberry Gummies are a great, convenient way to offer natural immune support for your family. Sambucol gummies are pectin based, sweetened only with pure cane sugar, and contain no artificial flavors or colors. They are gluten, nut, soy, dairy, and egg free. The gummies are suitable for vegetarians or vegans and can be used by adults or children from four years old. Full of great-tasting berry flavor, each gummy contains only 1 gram of natural pure cane sugar.

My children, husband, and I have been taking a gummie every morning. My husband is an essential worker (manager at a grocery store chain) and my children will be starting back in school in about two weeks. I am hoping this helps everyone.
