Elderberry has an extensive history of being used during seasonal immune challenges.

Elderberries have also been used as a food source for making wine, and syrup.
TRADITIONAL HEALTH BENEFITS OF BLACK ELDERBERRY
WHAT IS BLACK ELDERBERRY USED FOR?
Elderberry has long been proposed as being immune supportive, and supports the body's natural defense. Research studies show Black Elderberry to have immune modulating and antioxidant properties. Because Elderberry is high in flavonoid rich compounds, it exerts antioxidant protection on cells. By providing antioxidant protection, Elderberry aids in protecting cellular health from free radical damage and airborne elements.
