The Importance of Choosing Organic
Elderberry syrup generally has an impressive track record. But there's an essential difference between the varieties you need to consider — organic vs. non-organic. I’m going to be straight with you… when it comes to the health of your family, choosing organic matters.
Organic elderberry syrup is made from elderberries grown without synthetic pesticides, herbicides or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). This means you're getting a product as close to nature as possible. It’s free from harmful chemicals that can find their way into conventional products.
My organic elderberry syrup is also made without artificial additives and sweeteners. This keeps it as pure and close to its natural state as possible.
So, while there are plenty of choices when it comes to which elderberry syrup to buy, consider the importance of choosing organic. Keep in mind not all organic products are 100% natural. That’s why we went through the grueling process of getting ours USDA Organic Certified, so you could feel confident that we’re backing up our claims!
How to Incorporate Elderberry Syrup Into Your Daily Routine
There are so many benefits of taking elderberry syrup during the fall and winter months because of those nasty germs. But I want to emphasize the effect taking it year-round can have on your overall health. Building your immune system is something that should be a lifestyle, not a temporary solution.
So, what’s the easiest way to incorporate elderberry syrup into your routine? Take a simple dose every morning. You’ll be amazed at how incredible you’ll start to feel. That’s the power of antioxidants with a hefty dose of vitamins.
Another way to use elderberry syrup is to add a swirl into your favorite foods, such as yogurt, hot tea, applesauce… you name it!
I’ve taken it a step further and actually use it in some of my favorite recipes. That’s what my recipe blog is all about — elderberry-infused, easy-to-make family favorite recipes.
