Did you know that local pollen counts are skyrocketing in the Lake Norman, North Carolina area? Located just under 20 miles from Charlotte, for our seasonal allergy sufferers, you may want to supplement your diet with elderberry syrup to help you feel your best while navigating allergy season.

Not only can elderberry syrup help you thrive during allergy season, but it can also protect you during flu season. Did you know that it was used to successfully treat people during the flu epidemic in Panama in 1995? This is important because according to the CDC, influenza B is currently on the rise again for its second round of the season.

So what is Elderberry Syrup?

Elderberry syrup has been used for a long time for its value as a powerful antioxidant. It helps to not only lessen the severity of coughs, colds flu, bacterial/viral illness, and sinus infections but also assists in getting rid of them.

Elderberry syrup is a proven immune system booster made from local raw honey to support folks who suffer from seasonal allergies. Elderberries may also:

-Lower cholesterol
-Improve vision
-Boost the immune system
-Improve heart health*

At Gorelik Dentistry in Charlotte, North Carolina, our dental staff uses Elderberry Syrup Lady’s product — created and produced by local entrepreneur Brooke Burton Widener. Her all organic homemade elderberry syrup is loaded with vitamins A, B & C and works as an immune booster and a cold and flu buster.

Brooke formulated her recipe using ingredients chosen for their own special properties. One of the things we love about Elderberry Syrup Lady is that it is like a juice. You can take it five days a week when boosting your immunity against seasonal allergies, or every 2-3 hours when sick (or feeling like you are coming down with something.)

At Gorelik Dentistry, Dr. Julia Gorelik and our team in Charlotte, North Carolina, your overall health and well-being are important to us, along with your oral health. To help support you in your oral health, we carry Brooke’s elderberry syrup all year round! If you have any questions about how Elderberry Syrup Lady’s product has helped our staff, please feel free to give us a call at 704-553-1627.
