Anti-Viral Elderberry

One day, many years ago at the Carp Farmers Market…this older guy with a dirty t-shirt and wild hair came up to my booth. He was so excited to see the elderberry tea. He told me that he was a scientist, and he said to me “you know, we have just begun studying the amazing properties of elderberries as anti-viral” he said “you see, they have the unique ability to coat the cells so the virus can not latch on to them! I can not believe you have them here” The fellow seemed shocked and he bought several bags.

When putting together the TCT elderberry blend I felt intuitively that elderberries were the right main ingredient knowing that they had been used traditionally and were native to our area. I didn’t know what to make of this guy…he seemed kind of crazy; but he was not. Indeed he reminded me of Einstein with the hair like that. Over the next 5 or 6 years the articles began flying around about just that which he spoke of. Over the past decade I have many customers who experience an optimal level of health throughout the cold and flu season. As the weather gets nippy I have to remember to prepare larger bags of the elderberry and double my inventory because they know. If they forget to get some…soon something comes along to remind them.
