Elderflowers are many small and very fragrant white flowers that bloom in late spring from a plant of the Caprifoliaceae family. The elderberry plant was originally found in Europe and the Caucasus and its origins are very ancient. So much so that some remains of elderberries have been found in settlements dating back to the Neolithic.
Today we use it to cook, in art, but elderberry was much more in the past. It was believed to have magical powers (remember Harry Potter’s powerful elderberry wand?) And some of its parts (mainly flowers and fruit) were used for therapeutic purposes. The Germanic populations called this plant the pharmacy of the gods.
“Elderberry has for a long time been used in folk medicine as a diaphoretic, antipyretic, and diuretic agent. In recent years it was also found to have antibacterial, antiviral antidepressant and antitumor and hypoglycemic properties, and to reduce body fat and lipid concentration”
(J Funct Foods, 2018).
Elderberry has diaphoretic properties, that is, it is a plant that, once taken, can increase body sweat. It is precisely for this reason that it is used for the treatment of colds, fever, and diseases of the respiratory tract (such as cough and bronchitis).
The potential anti-inflammatory properties already attributed to it by folk medicine have also been investigated. From some research conducted in vitro, it has emerged that the extracts of elderberry flowers and leaves can inhibit the secretion of cytokines and reduce the activity of interleukins and tumor necrosis factor, all substances involved in the inflammatory processes and the immune response.
Elderberry against colds and diseases of the respiratory tract
As mentioned, thanks to the intense diaphoretic properties possessed by the leaves and flowers of the elderberry, this plant can be effectively used to combat certain conditions:
“Elderberry primarily used to treat common symptoms related to cold, feverish conditions, coughing, nasal congestion, mucous discharge, and influenza, as well as a preventively to strengthen the immune system.” (J Funct Foods, 2018).
In any case, before taking any type of preparation containing elderberry for therapeutic purposes, it is advisable to consult your doctor in advance.
Elderberry in popular medicine and homeopathy
The diaphoretic properties of elderberry are also well known in popular medicine, in which it is used for the treatment of febrile states of different nature. Besides, elderberry is used in traditional medicine as a remedy for coughs, laryngitis, flu, and even as a remedy for dyspnea. Elderberry is sometimes even used to increase milk production in breastfeeding mothers. Externally, however, the elderberry is used by folk medicine to counteract inflammation and swelling of the skin.
Elderberry is also widely used in the homeopathic field, where it is utilized as a remedy against inflammation of the respiratory tract (such as acute laryngitis and nasopharyngitis), against asthma, against viral infections of the respiratory tract, and the flu.
The dose of the homeopathic remedy to be taken can vary from one individual to another and can be different depending on the homeopathic dilution used.
The applications of elderberry for the treatment of the aforementioned disorders are neither approved nor supported by the appropriate experimental tests. For this reason, they may have no therapeutic efficacy or even be harmful to health.
Like any natural remedy, elderberry can also have contraindications and side effects. An excessive dose of this plant can, for example, cause nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. If you harvest it, be careful not to use the unripe fruit which can be toxic. If you collect the fruits and flowers, among other things, you need to know the plant well to avoid the unpleasant possibility of mistaken the black elderberry (Sambucus nigra) with a poisonous variant, the Sambucus ebulus. If you are not an expert, avoid doing it altogether.
The intake of elderberry infusions or herbal teas is not recommended for those suffering from chronic intestinal inflammation or if you have diarrhea, kidney, or liver disease.
As for the possible interference with drugs, the effects of elderberry can increase the efficacy of diuretic drugs, for example. It is also important to avoid taking it simultaneously with iron supplements. If you are taking any medications, however, it is always good to seek the advice of your doctor before starting to take any type of natural remedy.
Elderberry gummies can help you fight seasonal fevers and colds. These supplements come packed with nutrients and extracts to help you fight the symptoms of your illness. If taken while you’re sick, Sambucus elderberry gummies will assist you in recovering faster and getting rid of these unpleasant symptoms.
Sambucus elderberry gummies are naturally rich in vitamins A and C. They also contain other vitamins and minerals which will keep you healthy, such as zinc, which will help you with your cold, and calcium to strengthen your bones.
If you’re thinking about giving these gummies to your children, we have good news for you: there are kid-approved formulas on the market. The few human studies seem to confirm the safety of good quality extracts even in young children. However, it is recommended to ask your family doctor before giving them elderberry, especially if they are immunocompromised due to an autoimmune disorder, are undergoing chemotherapy, or have another underlying health condition.
Like anything else you give your children, it’s fundamental to be responsible for it. Experts do not recommend buying homemade elderberry products, as well as those made from unripe berries, or products made with the plant’s bark, leaves, or flower, because they might be poisonous. You can instead buy elderberry syrups and gummies from your local drug or grocery store—just make sure they are produced by a professional company whose products you trust.
Some people take elderberry every day for years to strengthen their immune system. It is extremely safe to do so. Elderberry syrups and supplements are safe to take every day, even more than once a day.
Elderberry products – if from a reputable source – are composed of elderberry fruits. Therefore, you’d be taking in a highly concentrated source of fruit, which obviously can’t be harmful to health. However, you should know that raw elderberries cannot be digested and are poisonous. Raw elderberries can only be consumed after they have been processed, to remove the poisonous substances and turn them into safe products.
