It's no secret elderberries are full of antioxidants and high levels of vitamins A and C that have anti-inflammatory effects. There's more research to be done, but some studies suggest elderberry may reduce symptoms of cold and flu and have immune-boosting properties. While the raw berries contain a toxic substance and shouldn't be eaten, cooked elderberries are used to make a thick syrup that's often taken during winter months to keep sickness at bay. 

The juice of cooked elderberries is tart and bitter on its own, so turning it into a delicious honey-sweetened syrup or buying a high-quality supplement version lends itself to making nutritious, easy-to-take immune-boosting gummies that adults and kiddos alike will adore.

But, that's not all there is to like about this recipe. Pomegranate juice is also high in antioxidants and immune-supportive vitamins C and K and has been shown to help improve brain health and muscle recovery after exercise.

Gelatin is known to have many benefits to skin, hair, and gut health. And sea salt is an important source of beneficial electrolytes. 

It's safe to say these bite-sized treats are packed with nutrients you can feel good about.
