Elderberries are the dark purple fruit of the elderberry shrub. These fruits have an extremely high concentration of certain flavonoids called anthocyanins which are responsible for the berry’s signature deep purple color. Anthocyanins are powerful antioxidants that work within the immune system to enhance the body’s response and keep it functioning at its best. The highest concentration of anthocyanins are found in black elderberries, nearly double the amount found in any other fruit. This gives black elderberries twice the natural antioxidant capacity of blueberries and significantly more than cranberries.
Elderberry is high in nutrients such as:
- Vitamins A, B6 & C
Elderberry benefits include:
- Relief of nasal congestions, mucus membrane swelling & other cold & flu symptoms
- Reduces risk of cardiovascular issues
