Both Kombucha and Aged Kombucha go through the same fermentation process that provides the beneficial probiotics, amino acids, vitamins, and polyphenols that support our health and wellbeing. The primary difference is time. Aged Kombucha ferments for over 60 days providing a tangy taste similar to apple cider vinegar.
The only difference is the tea that is used in each formulation. Each tea provides its own unique color and flavor profile. However, each variety contains the beneficial probiotics, enzymes, vitamins, and polyphenols that can help to optimize your health and wellbeing.

The sediment and strands you see are the beneficial bacteria that make Aged Kombucha a probiotic rich tonic. Aged Kombucha is a living food which means that the longer it sits in the bottle, the more culture strands form. It might look disgusting but it’s totally safe to consume and very good for your gut.
Aged Kombucha is a raw, living food that is sensitive to heat therefore, we recommend storing in the refrigerator. However, it can be stored in a cool, dark pantry; just be advised that it may form a scoby which you can either ignore or remove.
Typically elderberry syrup is hot poured which kills the beneficial nutrients found in one of the primary ingredients, honey. Additionally many store-bough varieties contain additives like glucose syrup which is used as a thickening agent, artificial flavors to enhance the taste, and preservatives like citric acid or potassium sorbate to extend the shelf life.
Our Elderberry Syrup is always cooled to 95 degrees before adding in the honey to maintain all the beneficial properties. We never use artificial flavoring, presevatives, or additives which is why our elixir is more like juice than syrup. Lastly, we incorporate Aged Kombucha in our recipe which adds to Elderberry Elixir’s immune-boosting benefits.
Elderberry Elixir can be taken as a daily supplement to support your immune health, during the cold and flu season as a proactive measure, or while you’re sick to help shorten the duration of your symptoms.
No. Elderberry Elixir is made with organic, unpasteurized honey and Pediatricians recommend waiting until your baby is at least 12 months - due to botulism risk - before introducing honey into their diet.
