Be Naturally Healthy - Elderberry Extract From Norm's Farms

I love using natural remedies for my family.  I just don't see the point in treating a cold with something made in a lab that could have negative side effects down the road.  Sure, this pill will make your symptoms feel better now but it will kill your liver later.  I just don't get it.  Mother natural gave us natural cures and natural things in nature to keep us well and healthy, so I like to utilize what mother nature is giving us.  Elderberries are one of those gifts from mother nature that has a wealth of health uses.  I got a bottle of Elderberry Extract from Norm's Farms and am so happy with it.

It came just in time too.  It helped get a cold out of our house in just a few days.  Elderberries are packed with antioxidants and is great for nurturing and boosting your immune system and for respiratory support.  Elderberry syrups are fantastic when used like a cough syrup, especially for children!  So when our extract arrived I was excited to try it.  And we happened to start to come down with colds and needed it out of our house as soon as possible.
My 2 year old has febrile seizures.  These are seizures that are brought on with fever.  Its not the actual fever itself that causes the seizure.  Its actually when she gets a very rapid fever and the sudden increase in body temperature sort of shocks her brain and that's when she seizes.  So anytime my daughter gets sick, we panic because illness can bring fevers and fevers bring seizures.  So as soon as we started getting the sniffles, I added some of Norm's Elderberry Extract to my daughters tea.  She loves tea!  Decaf of course.  She likes her tea with a bit of honey and the elderberry extract was a great addition.   We had this cold kicked in just a few days!  I think the elderberry really helped give her immune system the boost it needed to fight this cold off and those antioxidants were hard at work!   So goodbye cold!   No seizures!  Elderberries actually have significantly more antioxidants than even blueberries and blueberries are well known for their antioxidant power.  But I am an elderberry fan!

Whats nice about Norm's Farms Elderberry Extract is that there are no added sweeteners, alcohols or sugars.   Water is listed on the ingredient list because the process used to extract the juice from the elderberries.   So its pure and natural!

You don't have to wait until you're sick to use elderberry extract.  Its a great dietary supplement to keep you healthy!  I was very very pleased with the quality of this extract.  The extract from Norm's Farms is made from American Native Elderberries that are all grown at Norm's Farm.  You can read the story behind Norman Lenhardt and his legacy on the Norm's Farms website.  There is also a lot of great resources and information there as well.

Another thing I was very happy with was the price of this extract.  Elderberry can be fairly pricey but my extract came in an 8 oz. glass bottle for only $16.99!  That's a fantastic price!  I would highly recommend trying this extract.   Be sure to check out the Norm's Farms website.  They also carry Elderberry Syrup, among other products.  You can also connect with Norm's Farms on Facebook and Twitter!
