The elderberry is one of nature’s most healing foods.  Elderberries have been used for centuries around the world to lower cholesterol, improve heart health, improve vision and to fight colds, flu, tonsillitis and viral and bacterial infections.  Hippocrates called elderberry his “medicine chest” because of its ability to deal with a wide spectrum of health conditions.  Mrs. M. Grieve wrote in her classic A Modern Herbal  (1931, p. 273)  that “almost from time immemorial”  a syrup “has been made of the juice of elderberries simmered and thickened with sugar {or honey}, forming a valuable cordial for colds and coughs.”

 Elderberries contain amino acids, carotenoids, rutin, vitamin A, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorous, and a large amount of vitamin C (more than any other plant besides  black currants and rose hips).  Elderberries are higher in anthocyanins than blueberries.  Anthocyanins protect cells from free radical damage, are anti-microbial, anti-cancer and beneficial to cardiovascular health
