Elderberries are rich in antioxidants and have been used for centuries to boost the immune system, fight off colds and flu, as well as reduce inflammation. The anthocyanins present in elderberries provide a potent combination of health benefits including cardiovascular protection, cancer prevention, and improved cognitive function.
Elderberry extract has also been proven to be effective against various strains of influenza virus. Furthermore, elderberries may help control blood sugar levels and reduce symptoms of allergies due to their antihistamine properties. Additionally, the fruit has anti-inflammatory effects that can benefit joint pain and skin conditions like eczema.
