First Up: Elderberries
Elderberries have been used for medicinal purposes for
millions thousands? of years, and me, my ex-boyfriend, his bosses wife, as well as different cultures from the four corners of the earth all agree – IT RULES.
This immunity boosting powerhouse SLAYS other berries and herbs for reasons only a chemist or a wizard could understand. I’m seeing words like flavoniods, antioxidants, cytokine, vitamin C, as well as inconclusive studies that very loosely prove it could cut flu suffering time in 1/2. I don’t want to deal w fractions or words so I am just going to accept it as mother earth’s mystical magic. Its called elder-berrie-ving and its a thing.
I dose myself w this delicious potion when ever I’m feeling a little under. And sometimes even when I’m not. It’s yummy yummy juice guys, you are going to want to drink it all the time.
Fill a tall glass w ice, seltzer, a splash of elderberry syrup, and for a savory blast of flavor + health add a few drops of oregano oil.
