Pontack Sauce

Pontack Sauce

with Elderberries. Gluten-free, sugar-free, vegan

Elderberries are a good source of vitamins A and C - great in winter months to shorten colds - and are a powerful antiviral. As well as their significant immune-stimulating properties, they are one of the most powerful tonics for the respiratory tract and have been shown to be as effective as synthetic drugs in treating flu. Elderberries’ antimicrobial actions treat both bacterial and viral respiratory infections, proving helpful in resolving colds, sinusitis, bronchitis, head colds, tonsillitis, laryngitis and fevers. Its decongestant properties help alleviate mucous, catarrh and general congestion.

Elderberries’ antimicrobial and antifungal properties help reduce skin breakouts and calm the skin - especially helpful for those with oily skin types or acne.

A nutrient-rich diet that includes elderberries can aid digestion and, as a diuretic, can promote the production of urine. These berries are astringent (they cause the contraction of skin cells and other body tissues) which results in a dry mouth. Benefits of astringent foods are that they tone up mucus membranes (which line the digestive tract), improving absorption and helping to bind loose stools.

Our hearts benefit from the very high level of antioxidants found in elderberries, helping protect against inflammation of the arteries and a buildup of plaque and cholesterol.

 

These berries aren’t to be eaten raw, which is the perfect excuse to try Hejgro’s Pontack Sauce as the work is done for you!

Pontack Sauce mellows with age - some even suggest leaving it 7 years to mature fully! It is, however, delicious consumed immediately, but will only develop if you happen to leave it in the cupboard a while.
