Elderberry is one of the most commonly used medicinal plants in the world. Various parts of the elderberry tree have been used throughout history for medicinal and culinary purposes. For example, the flowers and leaves have been used for pain relief, swelling, inflammation and much more. In traditional European folk medicine, the dried berries or juice, are used to treat influenza, infections, sciatica, headaches, dental pain, heart pain, nerve pain and as a detox. The Native Americans used it to treat infections, while the ancient Egyptians used it to improve their complexions and heal burns. Today, elderberry is most often taken as a supplement to treat cold or flu symptoms and it is still widely used in folk medicine across many parts of Europe. Elderberries are a low-calorie food packed with antioxidants. Moreover, they have many nutritional benefits such as:
High in vitamin C: There are 6–35 mg of vitamin C per 100 grams of fruit, which accounts for up to 60% of the recommended daily intake.
High in dietary fiber: Elderberries contain 7 grams of fiber per 100 grams of fresh berries, which is over one-quarter of the recommended daily intake.
A good source of phenolic acids: These compounds are powerful antioxidants that can help reduce damage from oxidative stress in the body.
A good source of flavonols: The elderberry flowers contain up to 10 times more flavonols than the berries.
Rich in anthocyanins: These compounds give the fruit its characteristic dark black-purple color and are a strong antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties.
Fights harmful bacteria: Elderberry has been found to inhibit the growth of bacteria like Helicobacter pylori and may improve symptoms of sinusitis and bronchitis.
Boost immunity: This is the most important benefit of elderberries and it is the reason why it is often turned into tea.
