Immune Boosting Elderberry Gummies Print 4 LikeDislike By Lillian Zhao I love these immunity-boosting elderberry 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 Further Food 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 appear 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 uses high quality European elderberries and make sure to check the sugar levels (some are really high). I like using Further Food Elderberry Soothing Syrup for these gummies. it tastes delicious and is low in sugar.
