As the days grow shorter and the nights get longer, our immune systems take a hit. Seasonal flu, common cold, and other respiratory illnesses are all more prevalent. Luckily, there are also foods like elderberries that can help boost our immune system, so we stay healthy throughout the colder months.
Elderberries are well-known for their immune-boosting benefits, and used in traditional medicine practices for years. They are a powerhouse of nutrients and phytochemicals, with antioxidant, antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. This super berry contains bioflavonoids like quercetin and anthocyanin that may help reduce heart disease risk, promote healthy blood vessels, and more. And that’s why elderberry is a key ingredient in vitamins and supplements, especially those that support immune function.
In this blog post, we’ll be sharing with you four Shaklee products with elderberry extracts. Three of which are immunity supplements and an immune-boosting energizing tea. But first, we invite you to rediscover the dark berry used for centuries as a traditional cold and flu home remedy and more.
