What is the Elderberry?

Elderberry refers to several different varieties of the Sambucus tree, which is a flowering plant belonging to the Adoxaceae family. The most common type is Sambucus Nigra, also known as the European elderberry or black elder. This tree is native to Europe, though it is widely grown in many other parts of the world as well. Named ‘nature’s medicine chest of all herbs’ by the ‘father of medicine’, Hippocrates, the elderberry is best known as a powerful antioxidant and immune system booster. In 10 peer-to-peer reviewed scientific studies, elderberries have been proven to reduce the severity and duration of the common cold and flu as well as provide therapy for a number of diseases. Elderberries are rich in vitamins, minerals and polyphenols known for their anti-nflammatory abilities.

What makes elderberries so great?

● Anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antibacterial properties – Research has found elderberry to inhibit the growth of influenza A and B viruses and bacteria associated with upper respiratory tract infections. Elderberry has been proven effective against eight different influenza viruses, thus a useful defence against mutating flu viruses. Research has found that the black elderberry can block infection by directly stopping the viral duplication and thus rendering the virus non-functional!

● High in antioxidants - Elderberries display high antioxidant activity thanks to their natural polyphenolic compounds, primarily flavonols, phenolic acids and anthocyanins. These compounds are well known as free radical scavengers and are able to protect the human body against oxidative stress, a factor causing the degradation of the human body, thus contributing to the development of a number of diseases. The phenolic compounds also provide protection and therapeutic benefits including reduced risk of coronary heart disease, reduced risk of stroke, anticarcinogenic activity, improved visual acuity, and improved cognitive behaviour. Anthocyanins are also what give the berries their intense, dark purple colour.
