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. Elderberry juice was used to treat a flu epidemic in Panama in 1995. Elderberries: Contain organic pigments, tannin, amino acids, carotenoids, flavonoids, sugar, rutin, viburnic acid, vitamin A and B and a large amount of vitamin C. These, including quercetin, are believed to account for the therapeutic actions of the elderberry flowers and berries.Elderberries were listed in Mosby’s Nursing Drug reference for colds, flu, yeast infections, nasal and chest congestion, and hay fever. Honey: Flavonoids are powerful antioxidants that boost a strong healthy balance and increase energy. One antioxidant flavonoid, pinocembrin, may be unique to honey. Another antioxidant flavonoid, pinostrobin, helps to support enzyme activity in the body. Antioxidant-rich organic acids provide honey with a slightly acidic pH that reinforces more healthful wellbeing. Amino acids found in honey are nature's building blocks of protein. Plus it makes the Syrup sweet to taste! Clove: Its main component, eugenol, is a powerful multifaceted phytochemical that anesthetizes, kills intestinal parasites, bacteria and fungi & fights free radical oxidation.
