Studies have found its antibacterial properties heal burns twice as fast as creams. Instead of grabbing pain killers when a migraine strikes, try feverfew and ginger elixir. 63 percent of migraine sufferers found relief in just two hours when this was tried in a study. For the common cold, elderberry extract can speed recovery time and improve symptoms.
