Many of our long term readers remember the connection that Steve and I have with Dr. Richard Bernstein. Years ago he turned the diabetes world upside down when he challenged the ADA and AMA with his then “revolutionary” idea that a type one patient could manage their diabetes by counting carbs and dosing insulin. This is now the standard of diabetes care.

Now with Coronavirus putting the whole world on hold, another of his ideas is proving to be true.

He has always told us how Sambucol, a liquid extract made from elderberries, was the best treatment for flu symptoms and reducing the severity and length of flu, and this week we have an excerpt from the Journal of Functional Foods that shows he was correct. It’s possible this extract may even work for Covid19 symptoms.


We can make a difference!
