Re: readily available elderberry syrup for colds?

I have some elderberry-zinc lozenges from Sambucol (I used to have elderberry syrup but did not order more b/c I wanted neither the extra sugar nor the sugar substitutes); however, I generally just turn to my bottle of elderberry capsules. I don't get to taste the great Elderberry flavor, but in a capsule I get the power without the extras .

Re: OREGANO. Be careful with this. It can be really hard on the g.i. tract lining for those with sensitive stomachs. More than that, it depletes your iron levels. It IS good (also making a tea of the herb is good both for vapors and drinking), but you don't want to take it for long and want to be sure you're getting your meat (or other iron source).
