We are right in the middle of the “cold and flu season” and I am sure most of you have either been sick or someone in your family has been this year. We heard about Elderberry a few months back and started using the syrup when any of us had been exposed to someone that was sick, or when we had a busy week and might not have gotten all the sleep that we should have. We have seen a boost in our energy, and especially our immune systems.


I decided to find out HOW TO MAKE ELDERBERRY GUMMIES, and I encourage you to try one or all of these recipes for yourself and your family. You will be glad you did.


HOW TO MAKE ELDERBERRY GUMMIESWe all have heard by now of elderberry gummies. Elderberry seems to be one of the hot topics for fighting the common cold and flu as well as having many other benefits. But, elderberry has been used for years for its medicinal properties. In the Middle Ages, elderberry was called a Holy Tree, believed to have the ability to preserve health and lengthen one’s life.

Can elderberry help prevent the flu?

Many feel that elderberry is one of the most powerful ways to prevent or shorten the duration of a cold or flu. With its antiviral properties, elderberry has been shown to significantly fight against colds and flu symptoms, as well as herpes, decrease pain and inflammation and reduce symptoms of upper respiratory infections.


Does Elderberry help immune system?

Elderberries contain many vitamins and nutrients that are beneficial to people’s health. They have been used in boosting health and to fight infections for years.


One cup of elderberries contains 106 calories and 26.68 grams (g) of carbohydrate. A cup also contains the following vitamins and minerals:

  • 870 mg of vitamin A
  • 406 mg of potassium
  • 52.2 mg of vitamin C
  • 9 mg of folate
  • 55 mg of calcium
  • 2.32 mg of iron

Elderberries are also an excellent source of fiber, containing 10.2 g of dietary fiber per cup. This makes up a large amount of the recommended daily intake, which according to Dietary Guidelines for Americans is 34 g for men and 28 g for women. (source: Medical News Today)


What are the side effects of elderberry?

Ripe elderberry fruit is considered safe to take but in small quantities. If taken in large doses it can cause stomach cramping, diarrhea, stomach ache and sometimes the elderberry will act as a laxative.


The leaves, stem, bark, and root of the elderberry plant is considered poisonous and should never be eaten. Even the unripe berries can make one sick if eaten. That is why you want to make sure the berries are very ripe or dried.

Hi there Wendy! Thanks so much for sharing this article on how to make elderberry gummies. This is a very great idea because I don’t think kids or some people will drink or take elderberry syrup. Plus, I think it’s better to take it in gummies form because it makes us feel we are not taking any medicine at all. Also, this is a great gift idea! Thanks again!
