When I think of elderberries, I think of a whimsical countryside filled with beauty and awe. The elderberry is part of a very pretty bush, and is a member of the honeysuckle family, and when it blooms, it has tons of beautiful tiny white flowers.
It is far more than just something pretty to look at though. The elderberry has a very rich history in religious folklore and natural medicine. It even goes back as far as ancient Egypt. Elderberries have a glorious and mythical past in many cultures. However, even with all their usage in ancient medicinal practice, they are still quite relevant in modern medicine.
The elderberry packs quite an antioxidant punch. It is higher in flavonoids than blueberries, cranberries, goji berries and blackberries. They contain 87 percent of the daily value of vitamin C, high amounts of vitamin A, potassium, iron, vitamin B6, fiber, and beta-carotene.
It’s been found that bioflavonoids and other proteins in elderberry juice can destroy the ability for cold and flu viruses to infect cells. People with the flu who drink elderberry juice claim to have less severe symptoms and start feeling better much faster than those who did not.
