I have never had the pain of dealing with complicated asthma medications and inhalers, but I certainly have always felt for those who had to. Luckily, there is a much safer, more fun, and completely natural way of fighting against this horrible affliction, and it’s a lot more simple than you might think. In ancient cultures around the world, the people used elderberries to treat asthma and other respiratory infections.
Because elderberries are one of the few plant-based sources with an extremely high amount of quercetin, an extremely powerful antioxidant compound, they are an amazing fruit that boosts the immune system, fights colds, flu, and asthma! Research has shown that quercetin is especially great at blocking the release of histamines and similar allergic and inflammatory chemicals in the body, like those associated with asthma!
I recommend taking elderberry syrup regularly if you struggle with asthma. When you are choosing a brand of elderberry syrup, be mindful that not all elderberry syrups are created equally. It is always best to consume organic, natural, preservative-free elderberry syrup whenever possible. If you can make your own elderberry syrup at home, that is even better, so long as all of your ingredients are quality and organically grown to ensure the most health benefits.
