Absolutely! We love to add it to smoothies (especially ones with berries), sparkling water, kombucha, hot tea, lattes, drizzle it over Greek Yogurt and granola or mix a little in with your maple syrup for an immune boosting treat for pancakes!
Is there any scientific research to back up the benefits of elderberries?
Sure is! You can certainly google the research but we think this article from Dr. Axe nicely summarizes (and sites) the benefits and the studies behind why elderberry syrup is great for immunity.
Syrup, you say? Sounds like it's really high in sugar. Is it?
Nope! Our elderberry syrup contains 1 gram of carbs/sugar (only from the raw honey) in a tsp serving. This means that even if you took a tablespoon a day, it's only 3 grams of naturally occurring sugars. This is WAY less than most elderberry products on the market.
