The POWER of Elderberries celebrates two years! It all started January of 2018, in the peak of flu season, when our Founder/CEO, Jessica Lowery shared a picture of herself making elderberry syrup in her kitchen. Perhaps we should take it back a bit further to February 2013 when she found herself suffering from flu symptoms while pregnant with her first son, Beckham. Desperate to find a natural alternative for her fever, chills, body aches and congestion, she thankfully discovered elderberry syrup. After getting her hands on some and taking it every few hours, Jessica was back at work the very next day! What started out as sharing her story with friends, has turned into a thriving business.
“As I put myself in the shoes of customers knocking at my front door, I knew that if I wanted to truly pursue this business, things needed to change. Quality assurance and consumer safety was at the top of my priority list. I also knew that if I was going to continue to make elderberry syrup for others, it needed to be in retail locations for both consumer convenience and accessibility. One phone call led to another, and before I knew it, everything was coming together right before my eyes: a business license, retail license, insurance, product testing, consumer safety certification classes, commercial facility, and the list goes on! God had a plan, and I was faithful in trusting each ‘next step’ that he guided me towards. Things became REAL when my husband resigned from financial planning and jumped wholeheartedly into the business to support my efforts, and we hired a Chef/Director of Operations to help with production. Since then we have also brought on our Director of Sales and Director of Marketing to help even more people discover The POWER of Elderberries!” – Founder/CEO, Jessica Lowery
As a consumer, it can be overwhelming to fully understand what you are investing in, and how it compares to other brands. Below are some highlights on The POWER of Elderberries’ elderberry syrup, so you can feel confident in knowing that quality assurance and consumer safety are at the forefront of our business practices.
Our elderberry syrup is handcrafted using only the purest ingredients from nature; including local raw honey, organic European black elderberries, organic fresh ginger root, organic cinnamon sticks, and organic whole cloves.
Rest assured that our elderberry syrup has been third party lab tested for quality assurance and consumer safety. All production takes place in our commercial facility by our Director of Operations who is a former Chef of Divine Dining Group and has many years of experience in Food Safety Management.
We cool each and every batch, prior to adding the local raw honey, to ensure our customers reap the oh so many benefits of the honey used in our elderberry syrup. When it comes to creating an effective elderberry syrup, potency is critical. The POWER of Elderberries’ Elderberry Syrup contains 760 mg of European Black Elderberry per tablespoon. This confirms that the immune stimulant chemical compounds anthocyanidins, that also attack the flu virus, are rich in our elderberry syrup. We challenge you to check the supplement facts panel of your elderberry syrup to see the elderberry content per serving.
We also choose to use all whole ingredients from nature; therefore, shaking the bottle is not necessary. You will not find any sediment collection at the bottom of our bottles, which gives our elderberry syrup the smooth, delicious taste that customers love!
We use amber glass bottles to maintain the highest standard of packaging, ensuring the quality of our ingredients are never compromised. In addition, each and every bottle is sanitized prior to filling. Furthermore, per the FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) guidelines, coding, tracking and traceability are part of our procedures.
You may choose to take our elderberry syrup daily, seasonally or when you’re symptomatic, the choice is yours. We hope you will share The POWER of Elderberries with your family and friends this flu season, so they too can have Mother Nature’s best defense!
