At the first sign of the flu, either take an elderberry syrup or an elderberry lozenge called, "Sambucol."
Elderberry has been used in Europe for centuries to fight viruses. One lab study showed the Sambucol killed 10 flu strains, and in a human study, it reduced flu recovery time to three of four days.
More recently, in a test tube study conducted at a Florida research lab, elderberry extract killed the H1N1 virus.
Personally, I take Nature's Way Original Sambucus Bio-Certified Elderberry Lozenges which I purchase at a discount from http://www.iherb.com. Use this coupon code, BER298 and save $10.00 during checkout.
