Immune Boosting Elderberry Gummies (Sugar-Free)

Print

I love these immunity-boosting elederberry plus citrus gummy bears! There’s no better way to ward of winter colds AND enjoy a tasty snack than these easy to make and super healthy for you elderberry gummies. The gelatin is key in helping to give these gummies their soft and chewy texture.

Elderberries are nature’s natural way to keep your immune system strong.  The reasons why are that elderberries are super high in flavonoids and bio-flavonoids, especially anthocyanins, which are powerful antioxidants that help keep the immune system strong and resilient. More specifically, bioflavonoids appears to be able to block the action of a critical enzyme that viruses need to replicate. So elderberries are essentially able to deactivate viruses and stop them from spreading.

When picking out an elderberry syrup, make sure you look at the ingredients. Find one that’s organic and doesn’t have preservatives. I like using Gaia’s Elderberry Syrup for these gummies.

 

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

These immune boosting gummies are perfect when gearing up for flu season, for pre-airplane travel or just because and with no fat and no carbohydrates all you'll get from them is their delicious elderberry flavor and immune boosting benefits!

I’m thrilled to welcome you to Further Food.
I started Further Food because I believe in the power of food - to nourish, to prevent disease. But... what happens when we get sick with a chronic illness? Or when someone we love gets diagnosed? How can food and diet changes help the healing process? Help better manage symptoms - naturally?
These were the questions I was struggling with when I started Further Food.
Last year, my father was diagnosed with diabetes II. We were shocked because my mother cooks very healthfully. But my dad sneaks in a lot of processed, unhealthy foods while he was on the road, which is much of the time.  Sound familiar?
Around the same time, one of my best friends was struggling with IBS and another was going through a bad Ulcerative Colitis flare. I wanted to help, but didn't know how. So I turned to the internet to do research. But what I found was scattered, disorganized, and often depressing.  I got sucked into these forums, but couldn't easily find the information I was looking for. And that's when I thought  - there must be a better way to help people discover how to use food to combat various aliments...in an easy-to-use, beautiful, and fun way!
And that's how Further Food was born. In my research, I have helped my dad change his diet. He is now 15 lbs lighter, has cut back on processed foods, and decreased his total daily carbs. The journey isn't over, but he's doing so much better! #winningdad. I've showed him Tiffany's inspiring story of how she reversed her diabetes and shared her "Phase I" meal plan with him.  My friend has changed her diet to dramatically to reduce her IBS symptoms, and I have recently introduced her to the FODMAP diet - one that I discovered from the contributors on Further Food!  With my urging, my other friend with Ulcerative Colitis, tried going gluten-free and found that his 'pain-level' dramatically reduced within a week of making the dietary changes!
These powerful experiences, along with the stories I hear daily from Further Food's Health Heroes, inspire me to keep going further.  I am so deeply honored to be spear-heading this important work of using crowd-sourced data to find food-based solutions for a variety of health conditions. I believe in the wisdom of your stories, the strength of our community, and in the power of celebrating food as we get healthy together.
Help us spread the word about what we're doing, because we're just getting started!
 
Bio: I have dedicated my career to building and funding mission driven companies, specifically in the health and wellness space. Further Food is the culmination of my experiences, and reflects my belief that companies should do well and do good. I am also a certified yoga teacher, and love to surf, run, tango, travel and cook. My BA is from Brown University and my MPP from Harvard University.
