“Magic Berry” BEATS The Flu
I don’t know why modern medicine is always trying to reinvent the wheel.
Grandmothers and medicine men have been treating, preventing, and curing common ailments with nature’s medicines for as long as time.
Most of the drugs Big Pharma cooks up in their labs don’t come anywhere close to what nature provides in your back yard.
Case in point: This thousands-year-old “magic berry” treatment for the flu.
And it’s even more powerful AFTER you’ve been infected.
Flu season seems a long way off at this point, but it’s never too soon to stock your medicine cabinet with the tools of the season.
I’m not talking about Tylenol or Theraflu.
I’m talking about the tart elderberry.
These tasty berries make delicious jams and cordials, but their real claim to fame comes from their ability to fortify your immune system and protect against disease.
It’s been used for thousands of years for this purpose – and it’s not just an old wives’ tale.
Modern research shows that elderberries have almost magical antiviral properties. And that they can even help fight a virus after an infection has already occurred.
This makes them especially powerful against the flu.
Studies find that compounds in elderberries act directly against the flu virus by preventing it from entering and reproducing in human cells.
Think of it like body armor for your cells.
There are many substances out there that can help prevent the flu, but elderberries are especially effective at fighting it.
In a cell study, researchers found that taking an elderberry serum BEFORE the virus took hold only had a mild inhibitory effect.
But if a cell was ALREADY infected, elderberry jumped into action to STOP the virus from replicating.
As an added bonus, the elderberry serum also helped boost the cells’ own anti-viral actions.
And if you’re wondering what it is about elderberries that makes them such powerful flu-fighters, look no further than their deep, purple color.
All of these benefits come from the compounds (called anthocyanidins) that give the fruit their vibrant color.
Obviously, no one wants to get the flu. But if it should strike, I recommend having some elderberry on hand and to start taking it right away.
You can get elderberry supplements from your local pharmacy.
