Fantastic Flu Fighter

This information comes form Natural Living Forum

Flu viruses invade cells by puncturing the cell walls with its spikes coated with an enzyme called neuraminidase, which helps break down the cell walls. Elderberry actually disarms these spikes and inhibits the action of this enzyme - thus preventing Flu Viruses from invading cells. Elderberry also activates the immune system.

Knew I should have gathered those elderberries this summer and made juice!
