As a medical doctor, I love Sweet’s syrups for cold, flu, and daily immune support. My kids love it, which helps, and I have to hide it since it tastes so yummy and they just want to pretend to be sick to drink it. Better yet though, it has studied medicinal properties that are well summarized on the University of Maryland link http://umm.edu/health/medical/altmed/herb/elderberryWe have used various forms of the elderberry syrup but I really prefer the taste of the Sweet’s syrups and am convinced that local raw honey has added benefits, including seasonal allergies. I highly recommend this product because it is also made with love and the desire to improve the health of those who use it.
My family has been devoted to elderberry syrup for three years. With three kids in preschool we get every germ imaginable in our house! Amazingly, these last few years, we have missed the flu and the major tummy bugs going around. My kids love the taste- we have mixed it in oatmeal and yogurt. The kids never let me forget to give Sweet’s in the mornings before we leave for school!
