Elderberry is NOT a new fad. In fact, European medicine has taken advantage of the benefits of both Elderberry and Aronia berries for at least 1000 years, AND long before then, Elderberry and Aronia has been a staple in our family's Native American Medicine. Elderberry and Aronia are known for having very high levels of antioxidants. However, not all antioxidants have the same effect in the human body. It is the specific combinations of flavonoids, anthocyanins and polyphenols in Elderberry and Aronia that clinical studies have shown beneficial and speed recovery. Ednberry is very effective. We encourage discussion with your trusted healthcare professional or physician. Reference studies: PMC7347422, PMC6175979, PMC4848651 and more.
1 teaspoon Ednberry syrup = 40 to 60 gummies
Most gummy servings only contain 50mg of Elderberry/Aronia, but 2000mg of sugars! Even makers of "Extra Strength Gummies" fall very short of the Elderberry necessary for efficacy. If gummies are required for a child to enjoy the benefits of Elderberry, we encourage taking a few moments to make your own refrigerated gummies using beef gelatin. Other's gummies are shelf stable because of very high sugars. To be perfectly clear, we want to make gummies and we are working on a shelf stable gummy recipe with an efficacy that we can stand by and you can trust. Until then, we will NOT sell you 20 cents of sugar for $25 per bottle.
No. We love growing what we sell and we are grateful that the demand for Ednberry surpasses what we can grow ourselves. Because we believe SMALL FARMS, BIGGER LOVE, we have partnered with other small family-owned farms to help us supply the demand. Also, tropical regions are better suited for ginger, cinnamon and clove. These ingredients are ethically and fairly sourced from small farms in tropical regions.
Absolutely, our kits are Organic. We are a Certified Organic Farm and we are in process of obtaining yet another processor certification. Our prepared syrup, however, uses honey from here in the USA. The USDA, as of 2021, agrees that honey can not be certified organic. Bees can not be guaranteed to only collect pollen from certified organic plants. Unexplainably, the USDA has also decided, a foreign country can "believe" their honey can be organic and the USDA will allow foreign producers to undermine US beekeepers by labelling their honey "organic" for sale in the USA.
Ednberry is more than just elderberry! Ednberry is a handcrafted blend of highly antioxidant ingredients. Each ingredient of each kit or syrup is individually measured to ensure Ednberry's efficacy and flavor. As listed above, elderberry benefits have been described for centuries. Aronia berry is a more expensive and more powerful berry. In fact, it is so powerful that it is better known as "chokeberry" because of it's tartness and astringency. However, when blended with elderberry in just the right proportions the two team up to take on a completely fruitful bouquet and flavor.
If you take the recommended prophylaxis serving for an adult of 1 Tablespoon/day. Each prepared Ednberry kit would last 1 adult approximately 2 months. Therefore, a 1 year supply at that consumption rate would be 6 boxes per adult.
Keep in mind, the recommended adult serving while battling a cold is 3 Tablespoons/day and for influenza it is an entire 32 oz of prepared Ednberry in sips beginning as soon as liquids don’t come back up.
We recommend preparing your kit within a year for maximum flavor profile. If they are kept in a cool dry place for few years there should be no problem benefit-wise and at worst they may lose a little of the fabulous flavor.
Calculating all of these factors, 7 to 8 boxes should cover 1 adult for a year.
Many published medical journal studies have recommended the amount for efficacy of elder berries anthocyanins, when clinically studied for mitigating colds or Respiratory Syncytial Viruses (RSV), to be 110mg and 3.5 grams for flu. These adult amounts can be found in 3 tablespoons or an entire 32oz. of prepared Ednberry syrup, respectively. We take Ednberry prophylactically at 1 Tbsp/day for an adult and 1tsp/day for a child.
(*As a reminder, do not give raw honey to a child under the age of 1 year).
Our Ednberry syrup kits are shelf stable when kept in a cool dry place. They are labeled with a "best by" date for maximum flavor and freshness. Once you have received your syrup, or prepared your syrup making kit as syrup, it will easily keep in the refrigerator for 90 days, if it it has not been consumed before then because of it's deliciousness. We recommend shaking before each use.
Not at all. A reputable producer that claims "organic" will post their USDA Organic Certification on their website. JUST LOOK at the bottom of this page and click ORGANIC CROP CERTIFICATE.

For centuries, elderberry has been used in natural medicine. Elderberry is rich in nutrients, fatty acids, organic acids, minerals, vitamins and essential oils. It was found in recent years that it appears to have antibacterial, antiviral, antidepressant, antitumor and hypoglycemic properties, also may reduce body fat and lipid concentration. Due to its health-promoting and sensory properties it is used in the food and pharmaceutical industry.
Yes, clinical studies have shown alcohol makes Ednberry's beneficial polyphenols, anthocyanins and flavonoids more soluble. If you don't drink alcohol, don't start. If you responsibly enjoy adult beverages you may find an addition of Ednberry quite enjoyable. We only present the facts. Ednberry products contain no alcohol.
