Is it safe to take elderberry syrup everyday?

Elderberries are first and foremost a healthy food. Its safe to eat blueberries everyday, elder-BERRY is just that a berry. We recommend you do your own research and decide what’s best for you and your family.


What's the difference between the original and super  elderberry syrup?

     We took our amazing original recipe and added a few ingredients that earned it the title Super! We added aronia berries because they contain more antioxidants than any other berry, even more than elderberries! We added rosehips for an extra kick of Vitamin C, which rosehips are packed full of. We also added star anise, which is a spice that contains skikimic acid. Shikimic acid is essential in the synthesis of amino acids.

How long does the elderberry syrup last?

      Our syrup is recommended to refrigerate after opening. Store in a cool dark place. Best when used within 6months. Each jar has a best day stamped. 


What happens if I take too much?

     In large amounts elderberries can have a laxative effect.

Where is your raw local honey from?

  We get our honey from a local beekeeper here in the Upstate of SC. Our honey is truly raw and local. The honey is only strained it’s never pasteurized or filtered. 

Where do you get your elderberries to make the syrup?

    We get our berries from Co-op that we are members of that have a very strict quality control process to ensure we are receiving the highest quality organic elderberries.

Is this elderberry syrup safe to take while pregnant or nursing?

    We recommend that you always check with your physician before doing or taking anything while pregnant. We also recommend that you do your own research to help make an educated decision. 

Is this elderberry syrup safe for babies?

   Elderberry syrup sweetened with honey is not recommended for children under one year because the raw honey isn’t safe for them. We do make a syrup sweetened with organic agave or organic maple syrup that is safe for 6months - 1year. The rule of thumb is they should be eating solids foods and at least 6 months old before taking the elder-baby.
