We have a large family of nine and odds are that someone will get the flu every year, and someone always does. It only takes one in the family before it gets passed along. This is our third year using blockade and elderberry to prevent flu and it worked. Not a single case of flu in the house since finding the Herbal Toad.
Safe for all ages.
Our Elderberry contains several healthful immune boosting properties, including antioxidants, tannins, vitamins A, B, and C, and flavonoids, just to name a few. But it’s best known for knocking out the flu right when it starts, so it’s important to take it immediately upon having symptoms.
A clinical trial done during a severe flu outbreak in 1992-1993 in Israel showed that black elderberry handled flu symptoms faster than Tamiflu. Another study performed in Oslo, Norway in 2002, also confirmed the amazing efficacy for type A or B flu victims of several different strains. Returns to the state of wellness mostly occurred in two days while a few were well in three days. Tamiflu took 4.5 to 5 days. It took 6 days or more for the flu victims on placebos to recover. There were no side effects from taking elderberry in either study.
We use only the highest quality herbs that are certified organic, holistically wild crafted, and/or locally grown. Our herbs are tinctured in organic alcohol and fresh mountain water (free from harsh chemicals and fluoride treatments). This combination acts as a carrier, bringing the needed remedy straight to the blood stream to work fast and effectively. Tinctures are absorbed in the mouth and stomach and bypass the slower intestinal system which may or may not absorb the needed constituents of capsules. We hand make these wonderful herbal preparations in small batches. Tinctures are poured off into dark glass bottles creating a great product with an optimally long shelf life.
My body was weak after taking antibiotics so many times. My immune system was a mess and I was getting sick all the time. My daughter pushed me to try this and I am so glad that I did. I feel so much better. I love this elderberry tincture.
Everyone thinks of elderberry for flu but I bought this tincture for my allergies on a recommendation and it's been great. I was told that tincture can work even better than syrup and I can say that I believe it!
We keep this in stock at our house, in fact, I am on my way now to get some more!
I decided to order this after reading an article about the Herbal Toad's neuropathy oil and browsing their site. I had heard a lot about elderberry and it made sense to use the tincture over syrup. I am very happy with my decision and have ordered other products since.
I quite enjoy this tincture over the syrup. It is easy to get down in such small required amounts. When I am feel particularly lazy I simply add it to my tea where it isn't noticeable in the least.
I am a teacher, a wife and a mother. I take staying well seriously. Before trying this tincture version of elderberry. I almost didn't try the tincture, but after calling The Herbal Toad and speaking to a representative, I decided to try it. It works! My kids don't notice when I put it in their juice! I take it to school because it doesn't need refrigeration!
I am stocking up! My entire family swears by your elderberry tincture. Thank you.
This stuff is amazing. I'm a visiting OT and use this every day as a preventative and then as directed when I feel like I may be coming down with anything. Ive yet to be sick once since using this. My whole family is hooked now.
We use Elderberry tincture throughout the year for colds and other minor illness, but it's the flu season that we love it for. I am not looking like getting the flu with six kids to care for and having it run through my house.
