In addition to the usual rules:

While these are great rules to follow throughout the flu season. You can also think about some herbs that are safe.  These herbs are used for general, and long-term benefits.

1.  Astragalus Root health benefits

3.  Elderberry

Elderberry is harvested from the indigenous Sambucus elder tree. Elderberries have been a source of nutrition and medicine for years.  It is a gentle antiviral herb.  It has been called upon as a remedy during outbreaks of the flu. Some consider it a preventive to be taken throughout flu season.

There are many forms of elderberry available:

  • syrups
  • gummies
  • lozenges
  • teas
  • extracts.

It’s possible to make some of these preparations at home. 

Elderberries need to be cooked before consumption. The stem/root, leaves, and bark can be toxic and avoided. 

The purple color of elderberries is a sign of high antioxidant content.
