Elderberry Syrup

Yay or nay?

Elderberry syrup is all the rage right now, but does it really work? Some studies show that it can shorten the duration of a cold (by the way, is anyone else wondering why we haven't mastered the art of wiping out a cold yet?) by days, but I have a hit and miss track record when it comes to natural remedies.

Many of my friends swear by elderberry syrup, and there are definitely some ingredients in the berries that look promising. Food is the best medicine, after all, for many things... except when it's not, which brings me back to square one here!

Does elderberry syrup work for you? Share your stories, recipes or stores where you buy your syrup in the chat.
