Elderberries are small berries packed with antioxidants. They have been used in herbal medicine for centuries for their powerful immune-boosting benefits to prevent and treat cold and flu viruses.


Elderberry syrup as a 

FLU BUSTER

Elderberry syrup is a traditional remedy used to boost the immune system against cold and flu viruses. There are several research studies that have been done to examine how elderberry works to prevent cold and flu virus infections, and reduce the duration of symptoms if you do get the flu. 


A 2004 study from Norway showed that taking elderberry syrup several times a day helped patients with the flu get better several days faster.(1) 


In this study, 60 patients diagnosed with influenza virus, type A, were divided into two groups. The first group (we’ll call them “Team Elderberry”) took about 1 tablespoon of elderberry syrup 4 times per day for five days. The second group (let’s call them “Team Placebo”) took the same amount of another syrup that looked and tasted the same, but didn’t contain elderberry. 


What did the researchers find? 


The patients in Team Elderberry got better much faster, and took less medication, than those in Team Placebo. 


Here are the details: 

A majority of patients in Team Elderberry reported “pronounced improvement” (according to a scale they reported on throughout the study) in symptoms in 3-4 days, compared to 7-8 days in Team Placebo. 


Team Elderberry used significantly (statistically that is!) less medication to treat their symptoms than Team Placebo. The patients on Team Placebo were more likely to have to take a painkiller and/or use a nasal spray during the study than the patients on Team Elderberry. 


Basically, Team Elderberry recovered more quickly and didn’t have to go to the drugstore as often.


Elderberry syrup as an 

IMMUNE BOOSTER

Elderberries are LOADED with antioxidants, which have so many important health benefits. Elderberries contain antioxidants called Flavonoids - chemicals found in plants that are often responsible for fruit and vegetables’ bright colors. They have been shown to have strong anti-inflammatory and immune system benefits


A 2010 study from Australia looked at how elderberry works, along with its primary active compound, a flavonoid called Cyanidin 3-glucoside (say that three times fast!).(2) 


The study concluded that elderberry works in three key ways: 


1. Inhibits flu virus’ ability to enter cells 

2. Keeps virus from moving into even more cells after infection is present

3. Stimulates the molecules that affect the body’s immune response 


All of this adds up to elderberry syrup as a triple-threat to fight against the flu and keep you healthy when everyone around you is getting sick.
