Spring is here and with it the spring cold season. We seem to have some pretty nasty bugs going around our town as well! One way I help my family is by using elderberry syrup or other products. Never heard of elderberries? Well they are a berry found throughout most of America and have been used for thousands of years to boost the immune system and kill germs, as well as make delicious pies, jams and jellies. I often have harvested elderberries in the mountains around our home in the late summer. If you would like to know more about how elderberry can help you fight the cold and flu go HERE and HERE for just some of the information out there. As always I recommend you do your own research!
Norms Farms produce a large selection of elderberry products. From jams and jellies and most important to my mind their Elderberry Extract and Wellness Syrup. Norms Farms provides elderberry products that taste great! Not only that but they also sell elderberry bushes so you can grow your own. How is that for a cold and flu remedy, something that actually tastes good and you can eat every day for prevention?
Norms Farms sent me a sampler pack of their products for review. I tried all of it and must say I am impressed with the flavor and quality. I love the extract for making healthy Italian sodas and the jam and jelly were amazing on toast and English muffins. As to it helping with illness I do have an experience to share. My five year old son suddenly developed a huge lump on the side of his neck in a place I don't normally associate with a lymph node. Concerned I took him to the doctor and she told me that there are lymph nodes there but it could also be a tumor! I was to watch it over the next weeks and if it got bigger to bring him right in. Most likely it is a lymph node though and she said it could take months to go away.
Well that day I started giving my son the elderberry wellness syrup as directed and after a week the lump was gone! I believe the elderberry's helped to boost his immune system to flush the lymph node out~
Price wise the syrup and juice are less than what you pay for other elderberry products in the health food store only you know these are being produced in the USA. The jam and jelly is priced as other gourmet preserves at less than $6.00 per jar.
I would recommend Norms Farms product to anyone looking for USA Produced elderberry products. They are delicious, nutritious, and have health benefits!
