Elderberry Gummies: Nutritional Powerhouse of Protection
Updated: May 13
Black Elderberry, specifically from the plant species Sambucus nigra, is native to most of Europe and North America, is becoming increasingly popular for its medicinal uses to treat cold and flu symptoms, according to research.
The use of elderberries can be dated back thousands of years ago after elderberry seeds were found in Neolithic Pole dwellings in Switzerland. The pioneer of medical science, Hippocrates, dubbed as the “Father of Medicine,” also realized the importance of the elderberry to the point he had one plant in his own garden and referred it to as the ‘medicine chest’.
The early native American tribes as well as the inhabitants of Africa, Asia also used the elderberry plant.
The berries and flowers of the elderberry plant are a nutritional powerhouse packed with antioxidants and vitamins that may boost your immune system, reduce inflammation, lessen stress, and offer cardiovascular benefits.
Several studies along with two exploratory studies in humans and one open study in chimpanzees indicate that the elderberry extract Sambucol may be useful for the treatment of viral influenza infections.

· Respiratory infections
· Kidney problems
Elderberry extract has also been shown to have benefits for the skin since the fruit contains a group of compounds called flavonoids which have potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
It is important to note that raw, unripe elderberries and other parts of the elder tree, such as the leaves and stem, contain toxic substances that can cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. However, cooking eliminates this toxin—such as when formulating a gummy vitamin. This also helps with the extremely tart, sometimes unpleasant, taste of the raw berry.
