Despite not being a tasty fresh eating berry, the elderberry plant has many uses we can all benefit from. Elderberry antioxidants can help to improve immune systems, lower cholesterol, improve heart health, and treat flu symptoms. Elderberry can be made into syrup, juices, tinctures, and my favorite wines!
Whatever you make with your elderberry chances are it will have a beneficial effect on you and your health. So go out and get some elderberry planted so you too can have a great medicinal plant growing in your back yard! And if you don't know where to buy your elderberry plants I will have bare root plants for sale in the late fall/early spring.
In the coming weeks I will show you how to make your own medicinal elderberry syrup.
