THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND
As you may know, mankind has entered the Earth 2 ½ million years ago.
Since this phenomenon was – and still is – strictly in line with natural laws, man found natural support for existence from first day on. Free of charge, and with no side effects involved.
Primarily in terms of plants containing nutrients and remedies our body needs for hassle-free life. Just as documented already in the Holy Bible more than 2000 years ago – and mostly scientifically validated today.
Still, again and again we are surprised to learn about essential nutrients our ancestors have used for staying or becoming healthy but which not all have passed on to next generations. Despite of their natural power for our health.
Just like elderberries despite of the many nutrients they contain. Inter alia,
Not to forget about high fiber content (one cup of elderberries equals 1/3 of recommended fiber consumption) with health benefits such as, inter alia,
SCIENCE CLOSING THE ELDERBERRY GAP
Which gap? Hardly anybody amongst us who has not made experience with, e.g., flu, colds or respiratory problems when cold season is setting in. Trying to fight this experience with synthetics unsuccessfully.
Thousands of years after native Americans gathered elderberries from the Sambucus trees in their environment for this purpose and – to be sure – for supporting their biologic immune system.
Only now science is validating this ancient evidence-based folk wisdom globally. With special reference to elderberry syrup and lozenges.
At, inter alia, the Shanghai Construction Technical College in China, at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel, the University of Sydney and the Victoria University in Melbourne, both Australia, the University of Freiburg in Freiburg, Germany – and, yes, Columbia University in New York City.
So far, so good. But what’s the dosage?
According to studies cited above, serving 15 milliliters (ml) of elderberry syrup 4 times daily improved flu-like symptoms much quicker than with a placebo. In another study patients took 175 milligrams (mg) of elderberry lozenges for 2 days, experiencing an improvement in terms of fever, nasal congestion, muscle aches and headache already half-time, after 24 hours.
If you are lucky to find elderberries in the produce department of your grocery store, you can certainly produce your own elderberry syrup by cooking the berries in water, strain it and heat it up until it gets a syrup-like consistency to, e.g., spread it over your yogurt or put it in your smoothie.
IN A NUTSHELL
Unlike synthetic drugs, elderberry has not been discovered or invented. Rather, this fruit is natural part of our globe’s creation for the benefit of our health. With special reference to fight and prevent flu and colds, to support our respiratory system, and to strengthen our natural immune system in general.
Based on historic evidence, and scientifically validated today.
