What are Elderberries?
Elderberries are the fruit of the flowering plant known as Sambucus, more commonly referred to as elder or elderflower. The full scientific name of the most common variant, from which we get the majority of our elderberries.
Elderberries are packed with nutrients including minerals like iron, potassium, phosphorus, and copper, as well as vitamins, such as vitamin A, B, and C, as well as proteins and dietary fiber. They also have beneficial organic compounds that function as anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents in the body, they are one powerful berry!

Meet our Ingredients:
Filtered water, elderberries, lemon juice, stevia, cinnamon, ginger.
Cinnamon - We include cinnamon due to its anti-inflammatory properties as well as additional antioxidants.
Ginger - Ginger also contains many antioxidants and is known for helping fight infections naturally.
Lemon Juice - An excellent source of vitamin C and also helps in the preservation of our shelf-stable syrup.
Stevia - A wonderful substitute for sugar, yet adds the sweetness needed to make elderberry syrup palatable for even the most discerning toddler.
***We do not use honey in our shelf-stable elderberry syrup because in order to make it shelf stable, it must be heated to seal the lids. Heat destroys the healing enzymes in honey so we find it best to add honey (if you wish) to your jar once you open it. Additionally, honey is not safe for infants under 1 year old, so leaving out the honey in our syrup allows for all ages to enjoy it.
Honey has many wonderful benefits and we do recommend adding it if you have access to local/raw choices.
