The flu is making the rounds in my office, and I just can’t afford to be sick. What can I do to minimize my downtime?

I suggest supplementing with 2 tsp. of liquid black elderberry extract twice daily throughout the sick season. According to virologists, this antioxidant-rich extract contains a compound that ‘coats’ viruses and prevents them from invading and infecting healthy cells. In fact, elderberry extract has been shown to be effective against more than 10 strains of the influenza virus, so it should help you escape whatever is going around your office.

If you do catch the flu, though, elderberry’s immunity-boosting properties can reduce your symptoms and speed recovery. In an Israeli study, 93 percent of subjects taking elderberry extract were symptom-free within 48 hours, while patients given a placebo took at least six days to recover.
