    Natural cold and flu relief

    Natural cold and flu relief

    Runny noses, phlegmy coughs, scratchy throats, fever and lethargy will sap the fun out of any family event. Having Flora’s Elderberry Crystals for Kids stocked and on hand is the kind of planning ahead that will save the day if cold and flu symptoms strike. Made from fresh organic European elderberry juice, the crystals are vacuum dried—not heat or freeze-dried—and standardized to 2.5% anthocyanins. These are the specific flavonoids in elderberries that incorporate themselves into cells and tissue to provide protective, antioxidant, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory effects. Taken at the first sign of cold and flu symptoms, they are able to interfere with the virus’ ability to infect cells and support the body in fighting off the infection.

    Elderberries have been used therapeutically for thousands of years to strengthen the immune system, detoxify the body and boost energy. With Flora’s Elderberry Crystals for Kids, only ripe berries are selected, and they are double-cooked in order to ensure safety. The juice is then vacuum-dried to remove the water without the use of heat in order to maximize their retained nutrient and antioxidant content.

    Gluten-free, non-GMO, vegan, and kosher, Flora’s Elderberry Crystals for Kids are safe and effective for children ages 5 and up. Each gram of Elderberry Crystals is made from 16 grams of fresh elderberry fruit. Just dissolve 1 heaping scoop into water, smoothie or beverage of choice. For the summer months, they make a great addition to popsicles! Elderberry Crystals for Kids can be taken at the first sign of cold or flu or preventatively during cold/flu season to support immune health.

    Good immune health hygiene includes plenty of restful sleep each night, regular washing of hands with soap, eating well (watch the sugar intake and include food sources of vitamin C and zinc), physical activity to support good blood and lymph flow and judicious use of time-honoured herbal remedies like elderberries when needed.

    For the ultimate, kid-friendly immune combo, add Elderberry Crystals for Kids to Salus® Echinacea juice!
