Agreed! We use Sambucol too, and take one twice a day for prevention.A few years ago, I decided to add some perennials to compliment my garden produce. I planted a couple apple and plum trees. Additionally I added 3 elderberry plants for their medicinal qualities. Unfortunately, the suburban deer have defeated my fencing a few times, so they have yet to produce. In lieu of making my own syrup, I have been boosting my family’s systems with the commercial product Sambucol as an added layer of defense against COVID 19 and any other seasonal viruses
My Lithuanian grandmother used to make elderberry cordial from her own bushes and dole it out when someone was getting a cold. People have used elderberry for a long time, apparently!
