What makes The POWER of Elderberries different from other elderberry syrups/bites?

Please visit the Why Choose Us page to learn more about the many differences of our elderberry syrup and bites.

Where is your local raw honey from?

We use local raw honey from South Carolina. However, we have many customers that use our elderberry syrup and are finding relief that live all over the country! The raw honey that is used in our elderberry syrup is never pasteurized from the time it leaves the hive to when you ingest it in our elderberry syrup. This ensures all of the active enzymes and health benefits stay intact.

Do you offer fundraising opportunities?

Yes! If your school or non-profit is in need of a fundraiser, we love to support you. Please email us at info@thepowerofelderberries.com or contact us here.
