Elderberry - A Multi-faceted Health Resource
The Elderberry is the berry of the black elder tree (Sambucus nigra) which originated
in Europe. Elderberry has been honored for centuries in folk tradition because
of its numerous health benefits. Renowned for its overall influence on the body's
well-being, it has been used in teas, gargles, ointments, lotions and homeopathic
Elderberry is a rich source of nutrients, especially bioflavonoids and
anthocyanins - plant compounds that give color to berries, fruits and vegetables.
Bioflavonoids occur as pigments in plants, where they usually are found in close
association with vitamin C. Bioflavonoids provide antioxidant protection to
plants, helping them withstand harsh environmental conditions. They are also
important to our optimal health, but can't be manufactured by our bodies.
Anthocyanins are a unique class of bioflavonoids that give certain plants their
colors. In the case of elderberries, anthocyanins are the pigments that give
color to the elder plant's black berries and yellow flowers. They are powerful
antioxidants which can protect our cells from free radical damage.
The phytonutrients in elderberry positively influence cell function and protection
in the human body. One of their primary benefits is helping maintain the walls
of small blood vessels. Besides strengthening the body's natural defenses, elderberry's
constituents influence many enzyme systems. Elderberry may inhibit the enzyme
neuramidase, which can be harmful to the integrity of our cell membranes.
Elderberry also is an excellent sudorific (sweat inducer) and diuretic,
and a significant source of vitamins A, B and C.
