*This is a sponsored post in partnership with Nature’s Way®,, however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
As a young girl I was very close to my grandmother, a feisty self-driven woman who was decades before her time. Health and wellness were her top priority and she surrounded herself with amazing homeopathic doctors, herbalists, and healers. At the time I remember friends and strangers thinking she was a bit odd, but you couldn’t deny her health and vibrance.
I remember being fascinated when she would pluck an aloe leaf and rub it on my scraped knee, give me a spoonful of elderberry syrup to support my immune health in the winter, and the concoctions of teas she would brew when I wasn’t feeling my best always seemed like a magic potion.*
Her desire to lean on the wisdom of traditional health practices was a novelty to me then, but as I grew older I realized it wasn’t magic but rather traditional remedies that have been trusted around the world for centuries. Many of which I still use in conjunction with western medicine today to help keep myself and my family healthy.
The Traditional Remedy I Lean On For Immune Support*
One of the traditional remedies that I lean on, especially in the winter months, is the use of elderberry syrup to help support my family’s immune system and the brand that you will find in my cupboards is Nature’s Way Sambucus®.* Here’s why:
- Dedication to Purity- Nature’s Way Sambucus® only uses extract from Haschberg black elderberries for all of their products. Their growers select varieties/cultivars of Elderberry (Sambucus nigra) that naturally contain high levels of anthocyanins.
- Handpicked & Harvested at Its Peak- Nature’s Way Sambucus goes above and beyond by handpicking 100% of their elderberries at just the right time. Then they carefully inspect the berries for quality and freeze them the very same day to preserve them at their peak.
- Quality- From the moment they’re harvested, their elderberries are handled with care, to deliver the fruit as nature intended. The berries are handled & extracted using technology designed to collect & retain anthocyanins, along with other natural properties of the berry. Plus, their standardized elderberry, honey, and apple cider vinegar are all Certified Organic. I also like that their formulation is vegetarian and contains no dairy, gluten, soy, peanuts, or artificial colors.
NEW HoneyBerry Cough Syrups†
This year Nature’s Way Sambucus has a new product that you and your family can trust for your winter wellness routines. It’s called HoneyBerry Cough Syrup and it’s available in AM & PM formulations and in both adults and kids varieties.
HoneyBerry Cough Syrups are made with six key ingredients including organic standardized black elderberry extract, organic honey, organic apple cider vinegar, vitamin C, zinc, and English ivy leaf extract. English ivy leaf extract helps to soothe coughs associated with hoarseness, dry throat, and irritants.* And, the best part is it’s free from all the stuff you don’t need.
The PM formulations (both for kids and adults) also include melatonin to help with occasional sleeplessness so you can get the rest you need.
Why I Choose HoneyBerry For My Kids
My kids would tell you that the best part about HoneyBerry Cough Syrup is that it tastes delicious! And, because the kids love the taste they also don’t give you any hassles about taking it.
The ease of not having to beg and bribe my kids is reason alone for me to love HoneyBerry. But, the truth is I enjoy the taste and the way that it coats my throat just as much as they do!
