Immune Boosting Soothing Elderberry Tea


I am super excited to share this Immune Boosting Soothing Elderberry Tea recipe made with Further Food Elderberry Syrup because it’s so easy yet so delicious! This is the perfect warming remedy for fall and winter. I love to cozy up on my couch and have a cup of this stuff every morning!

The star of this recipe is, of course, the elderberry, otherwise known as nature’s immune support. Elderberries contain tons of antioxidants like vitamin C and anthocyanins, which are fantastic for keeping the immune system going strong. These little berries have actually been used for thousands of years for its healing powers, and they really do bring me peace of mind.

For the best-tasting elderberry tea, I use Further Food Elderberry Soothing Syrup. It combines the wonderfully tart taste of elderberry with the sweetness of honey and rich spices, cinnamon and cloves. This plus a cup of hot water is all you need to get you through those cold seasons!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

The berries and flowers of elderberry are packed with antioxidants and vitamins that may boost your immune system. They can help tame inflammation, lessen stress, and help protect your heart, too. Some experts recommend elderberry to help prevent and ease cold and flu symptoms. Boost your immunity naturally with Further Food Elderberry Soothing Syrup!

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 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.
