Elderberry: Studies show that elderberries have significant benefits against cold and influenza symptoms. People who have taken elderberries have higher levels of antibodies against the influenza virus, showing that not only may the berry be able to treat flu symptoms, it may also be able to prevent influenza infection. In one placebo-controlled, double-blind study conducted by Israeli virologist Dr. Madeleine Mumcuoglu, 93.3% of the people taking an elderberry preparation reported significant improvement in influenza symptoms within 2 days of starting it, compared with the 6 days it took for the placebo group to see improvement.
Mushrooms: Lunchbox Champ lollipops include four guardian mushrooms (lion’s mane, maitake, reishi and chaga), which contain a high level of polysaccharides (specifically Beta-glucans). These polysaccharides stimulate specific receptors on our immune cells (macrophages, neutrophils, monocytes, and dendritic cells). They also contain antioxidants and zinc.
About Xylitol: Xylitol is a natural sweetener, present in the fibers of many plants including berries, oats, beets, sugar cane and birch. It has a low GI value of 7, meaning it has little effect on blood sugar levels and insulin. It is therefore seen as a useful alternative for those seeking low glycemic nutrition. It contains 40% fewer calories than sugar, only 2.4 calories per gram. It doesn’t directly contribute toward the growth of intestinal yeasts or Candida. Please note: Like chocolate, xylitol is toxic to dogs. Please keep candy away from your pets. In large quantities, it can have a mild laxative effect, causing digestive discomfort.
