Black Elderberry Syrup
This formula has been changed! Our Elderberry is double extracted, undergoing through both a decoction, as well as extracted in alcohol and vegetable glycerin.
This time we decided to make a very high potency extract combining elderberry, along with a high ratio of herbal antivirals such as Skullcap baikalensis, Cordyceps, Reishi, Shiitake and Maiitake. These herbal antivirals are incredibly immune supportive while being renowned for being respiratory tonics. All of our mushrooms are 100% certified organic grown in Washington state, where we use both fruiting body and mycelium.
This is not your common Elderberry syrup!
This is extra potent, and vegan. We don't use honey like classic formulations, instead we use organic vegetable glycerin (VG) and organic cane alcohol along with having a high ratio of a high potency extract of herbal antivirals to exalt the immune protective potential.
We chose vegetable glycerin (VG) for our Elderberry Immune Elixir over honey or sweeteners like traditional recipes, for several reasons:
- VG has a sweetness to it, but contains no sugar and therefore makes our elderberry syrup completely sugar-free, safe for diabetics and vegans.
- Our elderberry syrup travels just as easily as our tonics and elixirs... just pop it in your bag and go! VG allows for it to be shelf stable, therefore it does not require refrigeration like the honey, or other sweetener, based ones.
- While we absolutely think the honey or agave ones are quite a treat, we find that if you're doing truly medicinal doses of 4-6 teaspoons per day at the first sign of illness, the sugar adds up.
