Elderberries, Cold & Flu Prevention and You

Elderberries have been used for centuries to support the immune system, as they are rich in vitamins, flavonoids, and​ antioxidants. Otherwise known as Sambucus, elderberry is a great addition any time of year, but especially in the winter. Studies have shown elderberries to be extremely effective against cold and flu viruses.

Known to have worked effectively on a variety of health problems, elderberries have commonly been used for the following ailments:

  • As an eyewash for conjunctivitis
  • As a poultice for wounds
  • ​To diminish the swelling of mucous membranes. 
  • For relief of congestion.
  • Detoxifying
  • Weight management
  • As an anti-viral
