New You Beauty Tip: Beat the flu and get back to being healthy and beautiful in half the time with a five-day elderberry regime.

The BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine journal recently published a study that authenticates elderberries as a tool to ease flu symptoms such as fever, headaches, fatigue, sore throat, cough and body aches. Still suspicious? Another study found that the power-fruit sliced in the duration of flu symptoms in half! The best time to start your elderberry regime is within a day or two of the first signs of sickness and should be taken in the form of syrup extract or a lozenge.
