From Sundance Botanicals:

Elderberries are tiny, dark berries that grow in clusters on the flowering elder tree that is indigenous to North America. They have been used for centuries for their immune-boosting and anti-infectious properties. In 400BC, Hippocrates referred to the black elderberry shrub as his medicine chest.

Natural substances called flavonoids, such as quercetin and anthocyanins, are present in elderberries. These increase cytokine production and have antioxidant properties known to reduce free radicals within the cells, preventing damage, and promoting anti-cancerous and anti-aging processes. According to the USDA, elderberries are ranked as one of the highest food sources of antioxidants – even more so than blueberries! One study suggests that consumption of elderberry extract can inhibit several strains of the influenza virus and reduce the symptoms.

Elderberries may provide support for:

  • Boosting immune functions
  • Combating cold and flu symptoms
  • Respiratory and asthma
  • Targeting viruses and bacteria
  • Joint health and inflammation
  • Cardiovascular system
  • Energy and metabolism
  • Digestion

Although Nature’s Cupboard does carry a variety of elderberry syrups and extracts that are all very high quality, going local is a big deal to us — we like to brag about ElderPower. The ingredients are sourced clean and as local as possible — even the amber bottle is made in the USA. Sundance Botanicals was started by a nurse with 15 years of experience and a true passion for promoting healthy lifestyle alternatives and conscious living through traditional medicine. “Nature has so much to offer us!” Visit Sundance Botanicals’ Facebook page.
