Flu season is crazy right now. All over Facebook, I see posts about people whose families are being ravaged by this multi day yuck that is circling. Having just begun a new business 6 months ago, my husband and I cannot afford to be sick and miss out on work…and my son leaves for a mission trip in 2 1/2 weeks, so we are no holds barred on the immunity boosting. All my crunchy mama friends have been downing elderberry syrup, so I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon. The last week or so we’ve been mixing a couple teaspoons into a small shot of juice and I’m hoping this superfood will keep the sickies at bay.
