Like much of the world, I’ve been anxiously watching the H1N1 outbreak and researching like crazy to keep my family safe. One remedy that came up again and again was elderberry. The research is really impressive and reassuring. I’ve ordered elderberries for a recipe I found online and will make up a batch as soon as they arrive, but you can also just purchase the extract. If you’re interested, I put the information I found here with lots of links for sources and information. Knowledge is power, and I feel much more prepared with this information.
