So most of you know by now, that I am a former holistic health coach and natural living (within reason of course) is kind of my jam! The protocol I follow when raising my kids, is natural first and medicine second. I highly respect the medical community, and totally believe there is a place for medications. However when my children get sick I will always turn to a natural cure, before heading to see our MD.
I had been hearing loads of great stuff about elderberry syrup to boost immunity. Having two kids in preschool and a brand new baby I was really wanting to give it a try when I was approached by Arise Organics.
Arise is a Midwest company (specifically Indiana) owned and operated by a disabled, female veteran, who also happens to be one awesome momma! I mean talk about supporting all the right people in one, right?
Their products are all organic, produced in a commercial kitchen and with local raw honey from hives in Valparaiso, Indiana.
So what are the benefits??
- It is proven to boost your immune system, especially during cold and flu season. In a nutshell the elderberry syrup helps our immune system communicate with our bodies more effectively, leading to less illness
- Contains high levels of antioxidants. Think of antioxidants as a shield that fends off intruders!
- There is early evidence showing that elderberry syrup can help prevent the spread of a viral infection. We all know antibiotics are often prescribed by pediatricians, and unfortunately those medications cannot touch a viral infection.
So your thinking, what was my experience?
It just so happens that I got my care package the exact week that my older two came home from school with nasty colds. They came home on a Tuesday and we were leaving for a family trip on Friday. I put the syrup to work right away! And let’s just say we went on our trip with happy and healthy kids.
I would say what this Elderberry Syrup did was prevent their illness from getting worse and let their little bodies heal what had already been infected.
The kids absolutely loved the taste and I had zero problems giving it to them! BONUS!!! I have continued to give our whole family (husband included) a dose every morning and we have stayed booger free since starting the remedy!
I would definitely recommend Arise Organics and would love if you could give them a try and report back to me with your experience!
Love you all,
