Here are five key points about elderberry supported by research:

1. Immune-Boosting Properties: Elderberry has been traditionally used for its immune-boosting properties. Several studies have shown that elderberry extracts can stimulate the immune system and help reduce the duration and severity of cold and flu symptoms. For example, a 2019 study published in the journal Nutrients found that elderberry supplementation significantly reduced upper respiratory symptoms and the duration of illness in air travelers.

2. Antioxidant Effects: Elderberries are rich in antioxidants, particularly anthocyanins. These compounds have been shown to have potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Research suggests that the antioxidant activity of elderberry may help protect against oxidative stress and support overall health. A study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry in 2017 demonstrated the high antioxidant capacity of elderberry extract.

3. Anti-Viral Properties: Elderberry has been studied for its potential anti-viral properties. It is believed that certain compounds in elderberry can inhibit the replication of viruses by preventing them from entering host cells or blocking their ability to spread. A 2019 study published in the journal Viruses found that elderberry extract was effective against several strains of the influenza virus in cell cultures.

4. Cold and Flu Symptom Relief: Research suggests that elderberry can help reduce the severity and duration of symptoms such as coughing, congestion, and fever. A randomized controlled trial published in the Journal of International Medical Research in 2004 showed that elderberry syrup significantly improved flu symptoms within 2-4 days.

5. Potential Cardiovascular Benefits: Some studies have explored the cardiovascular benefits of elderberry. The anthocyanins present in elderberries may help improve heart health by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation, promoting healthy blood vessel function, and lowering blood pressure. A review published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences in 2017 highlighted the potential cardioprotective effects of elderberry.
