Get ready for winter with elderberry syrup

It is that time of year again where the cooler weather arrives and hand in hand with the cooler weather comes the winter flu season. This makes it the perfect time to make a visit to Rivergum Cottage at the market this week. Rivergum Cottage stock as variety of elderberry products including elderberry syrup, DIY kits and elderberry gummy bears. Elderberries are known for their excellent health benefits including that they are a powerful cold preventative, great for gut health, an anti-oxidant, great for immunity and much, much more. Keegan tells me that one of the most important qualities in elderberry syrup is that it is an antioxidant, which means it helps fight inflammation, strengthen your immune system, and improve overall health and wellbeing. Keegan says that black elderberries are rich in antioxidants called anthocyanins, which is what gives black elderberries their deep purple color. Rivergum Cottage’s elderberry syrup is packed full of organic black elderberries, raw cold pressed honey or organic maple syrup, organic raw ginger, organic cinnamon, organic cloves and filtered rain water. Keegan tells me that you can either take a 40ml shot of elderberry syrup each day or you can even add hot or cold water and drink as a hot or cold drink. Head over to see Keegan this week and get your body ready for the cooler months.
