Wild for Elderberry

Elderberry's come from an Elderberry plant, which is a tall shrub with fast-growing canes that produce white flowers. These flowers pollinate into berries. While the berries come in an array of red, yellow, or blue and black, only the blue and black elderberries are edible. 

Elderberry's have been reputed over the ages in fighting not only the common flu, but sinus infections, hay fever, as well boosting the immune system. 

What sets Elderberry's apart is that they contain unusually high amounts of antioxidants and micronutrients known as anthocyanins. This is what makes Elderberry's and other natural occurring berries red, blue, or black. The darker the pigment the more anthocyanins the berry contains. 

Anthocyanins are known to have many therapeutic benefits; some known benefits are reduced risk of heart disease, reduced risk of stroke, improved cognitive ability, and more. 

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should avoid Elderberry products. Elderberry is also a diuretic, so you will want to contact your primary care physician about your current medications and if it will have any reactions with them. A good rule of thumb with Elderberry or any supplement is to consult your physician before taking.
