Each ingredient of the elderberry syrup is carefully selected as the best available, beginning with the water. Reverse osmosis is a filtration process that removes impurities from water by pressure forcing water through tiny pores that removes chemicals, bacteria and minerals through membranes and filters leaving pure water. The water is then structured and harmonized with the Somavedic.

Organic elderberries are rich in flavonoids, especially anthocyanins which give the berries their rich, deep color. Anthocyanins are powerful antioxidants that work to keep the immune system strong and resilient, as well as boost the production of cytokines. Cytokines play a crucial role in the immune system’s response to disease. Elderberries also contain bioflavonoids that inhibit the enzymatic activity on viral coats, specifically the haemagglutinin spikes. These spikes are what viruses use to pierce cell walls to take over and replicate. By deactivating these spikes, the virus is contained within itself and can’t obtain a host cell.

Raw Manuka honey is the highest quality honey due to its high methylglyoxal (MG) levels. This high MG level leads to an increased antibiotic capability. This honey is also rich in amino acids, B vitamins, calcium, copper, iron, potassium, sodium and zinc. The raw Manuka honey remains unheated throughout the entire creation process to ensure all medicinal potential is retained.

Organic Turmeric powder contains more that 100 chemical compounds that contribute to its ability to treat a wide variety of conditions. Curcumin, a polyphenol and what gives turmeric is rich deep yellow color, is one of the chemical compounds found in turmeric. Turmeric’s unique chemical composition of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and phytochemicals provide the body with a protection against illness and disease, boosts immunity by combating germs, bacteria and viruses.

Turmeric essential oil is full of turmerones, a potentiator as well black pepper. Potentiators simply means that the pharmacological response between two or more agents is now greater than the sum of their individual parts. Turmerones increase the absorption of curcumin, thus increasing the effectiveness of turmeric.

Black pepper contains piperine, another potentiator for turmeric, increased the curcumin absorption up to 2,000%. In combination with turmeric essential oil, turmeric is well supported to be a potent antibacterial and antiviral powerhouse.

Clove essential oil has strong antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties, in fact it’s so powerful that it has the ability to fight off many drug-resistant bacteria, making it an oil of choice for strep.

Cinnamon Bark essential oil contains cinnamaldehyde, caryophyllene and linalool, making it one of the strongest, most powerful antibacterial and antiviral essential oils. It protects the body against harmful pathogens while at the same time boosting the immune system.

Ginger essential oil contains gingerol that supports the immune system. I actually chose this oil not for its immune system benefits, but for its impact on the digestive system. It has a dual role with its ability to have a positive impact on both the immune system and the digestive system. It never fails when I get catch something my guts declare mutiny. They either stop working or go into over drive. The ginger essential oil soothes tender GI systems as well boosts immune systems with its high sesquiterpene content. In my opinion, it is important to soothe upset tummies when we don’t feel well, as well as move things out in a healthy manner that our bodies are trying to fight. Ginger essential oil is able to tackle both sides of this coin.

When creating this very unique tonic, I was extremely careful to select only the best of the best ingredients, raw, organic, and pure so that the body wasn’t bombarded with unnecessary additional chemicals and the syrup was highly bioavailable. The syrup is also very low in sugar unlike other elderberry products on the market.

Elderberry syrup can be used as a preventative as well we as a remedy for many common ailments other than colds and flu. What makes this unique marriage of high quality, whole ingredients most beneficial to the body is regular, consistent, daily use. You are basically keeping the body at the ready and armed for any invaders we pick up along the way.
