Sambucus (Elderberry) - herbal immune aid to fight the flu virus

Have you recently been exposed to the flu?  With the Swine flu peaking and possibly on the decline there is still a good possibility that you could be exposed or possibly get the flu.  So be on the look out and continue to wash your hands and cover your cough.

Here is something that can protect you against getting sick with the flu.  If you think that you might have been exposed to the flu or want to prevent getting it then take Sambucus.

Sambucus is also called Elderberry and has been found to kill the H1N1 or swine flu virus.  It does this by stopping the virus from invading the cells and then the virus cannot live. The virus needs the DNA in the cell to replicate and if it can�t get into the cell then it dies.
Pretty cool huh?

You can find Elderberry in most PCC, Whole Foods and other supplement stores.  You can get it in tincture form (liquid in dropper bottle) or syrup extract.  I put the syrup in my protein shake in the morning or in some water in the afternoon. Taking it daily during flu season will help keep you in tiptop immune shape.
