I spent a couple of days down with the flu, but I'm thankful for the little amber bottle of elderberry liquid extract that I keep in my refrigerator. That is powerful stuff! I don't get a flu shot, and I rarely get the flu, but I keep this on hand just in case. As soon as I realized it was flu I started taking a dropperful of the extract 3-4 times a day - that meant two doses on the first day and then four the second day. By that time I felt fine, and really those last two doses were just in case because I was already feeling pretty good.
