Favorite Thing: Quantum Herbals Elderberry/Olive Cough Syrup

If you have ever had a cough that you couldn’t shake loose, that threatens to take over your nights and days, and is unrelenting… then you should have used Quantum Herbals Elderberry/Olive Cough Syrup.

My husband came down with a hacking cough about 2 weeks ago and it did not take long before it passed on to the rest of us. After 2 days of chest-aching coughs and sleepless nights, I’d had enough. I went through my medicine cabinet and found this little miracle of a bottle. After 2 days of swigging directly from the bottle, my cough became productive and began to dissipate. My husband could not believe how quickly I have begun to recover from this blight, considering he is still coughing away.

This formula combines effective and potent herbs (elderberry, olive leaf, horehound, osha root) with tasty maple syrup, so it is easy to take and one of the best respiratory formulas I have ever encountered.

Forget Robitussin – this is what you need!
