Elderberry

Sambucas nigra, S. Canadensis

Elderberry (fruit) contains vitamin C, antioxidants and antiviral proteins, which help provide immune support and shorten the severity of colds, flus, or other viruses. Studies have shown it can destroy the influenza virus' ability to reproduce itself. These berries are anti-inflammatory and help with allergic symptoms: reducing histamine, as well as reducing sinus irritations and coughs. The elderberry tree is native to Europe, Asia and North Africa.
