While elderberry is best known for knocking out the flu right when it starts if taken at the first sign of illness, and preventing it in the first place when taken just once daily it has also been traditionally used for helping with warts, cholesterol, bronchitis, allergies, acne, constipation, and pain caused by inflammation. Our Elderberry Tincture has a 1:1 herb strength ratio, so 1ml is equivalent to 1000mg of raw herb, which is three times the strength of the average herbal extract. Our elderberry is safe for all ages and contains several healthful immune boosting properties, including antioxidants, tannins, vitamins A, B, and C, and flavonoids, just to name a few. Our cold extraction process, as opposed to a heat extraction process, helps maintain the full spectrum of the plant's constituents in the final product. When used as an extraction method, organic grain alcohol increases absorption without affecting blood sugar levels, and maximizing shelf life.
Elderberry is one of the world's most famous immune boosting herbs. Elderberry (sambucus nigra) is a commonly used health tonic of Native Americans, but it was actually made famous by an Israeli company that manufactured it under the trade name Sambucol. During a flu outbreak at a kibbutze in Israel, those treated with Sambucol recovered within a day or two while those given placebo took the normal six to seven days to get back on their feet. The publicity from this study made Sambucol an instant success. Greenbush alcohol free elderberry extract is higher potency and less expensive dose for dose than Sambucol.
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.
Organic: Elderberries, Echinacea, Hibiscus, Rosehips, Cinnamon Bark; steeped in Organic Grain Alcohol
We use only the highest quality herbs that are certified organic, holistically wild crafted, and never irradiated or sprayed with pesticides. Our cold extraction process, as opposed to a heat extraction process, helps maintain the full spectrum of the plant's constituents in the final product. Our herbs are tinctured in organic alcohol and fresh mountain water (free from harsh chemicals and fluoride treatments). This combination acts as a medicinal strength and holistically balanced 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.

This tincture has plenty of polyphenols , needed to reduce ionic silver to nano particle , very good tincture !
I am on my third year using your elderberry during flu season and have stayed well throughout. Thank you!
What a great treasure to keep in my medicine cabinet for those days when I feel like I'm coming down with something. With so many people coughing, sneezing, and sharing greens with everyone around then, it's nice to know my Elderberry tincture is close at hand.
We love y'alls elderberry. It worked for my family and it was easy to get the kiddos to take when I put it in there juice. Even put it in hot cocoa a couple of times. We will be using it this year too!
I am back for more elderberry tincture this year. I am a single mom with 3 kids. We cannot afford to have the flu have its way. This is the third year with Herbal Toad, and no illness among the four of us, even though the flu was all around us the last two years. I have used the referral program a lot too, so I have gotten great discounts, something this single mom is always looking for too. Thank you!
We use this for anything that makes since. It is our go to when anyone is sick in our family. It even works for my husbands occasional allergies.
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.
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!
