This is extra potent, and vegan. Anima Mundi doesn't use honey like classic formulations, instead they use organic vegetable glycerin (VG) and organic cane alcohol along with having a high ratio of a high potency extract of herbal antivirals to exalt the immune protective potential. They chose vegetable glycerin (VG) for the Elderberry Immune Elixir over honey or sweeteners like traditional recipes, for several reasons:
- VG has a sweetness to it, but contains no sugar and therefore makes our elderberry syrup completely sugar-free, safe for diabetics and vegans.
- This elderberry syrup travels just as easily as our tonics and elixirs... just pop it in your bag and go!
- VG allows for it to be shelf stable, therefore it does not require refrigeration like the honey, or other sweetener, based ones. While we absolutely think the honey or agave ones are quite a treat, they find that if you're doing truly medicinal doses of 4-6 teaspoons per day at the first sign of illness, the sugar adds up.
Each bottle is 3-4 week supply. We suggest taking 1 teaspoon daily. Children: Ages 4 and up: 1 teaspoon daily Ages 1-3: ¼ teaspoon daily dissolved in water, juice, tea, etc. Elderberry is meant to be high-dosed when you’re exposed to a bug, and you feel the onset of symptoms. This is why they really chose doing sugar free, because sugar feeds the potential pathogens. The dosage is variable as it depends if you're using for ongoing resilience and protection, or when "hit" with something. For regular consumption 1tsp a day is good, when you experience the early stages of a cold or flu, take 4-6tsp throughout the day.
