Elderberry has been a popular natural immune support product for many years, for both children and adults. It gained serious traction during last year's especially awful flu season. With this year's flu season predicted to be as bad, here's what you need to know about this amazing herb.
Black elderberries may help with flu
According to several studies (more info here), elderberry extract may help support a shortened duration of flu. While more studies are needed, the research so far seems to support the use of elderberry extract for flu-like symptoms.
Elderberry has a long history of safe use
Elderberry has been used for possibly as long as millennia for symptoms of cold, flu, respiratory infections, and other seasonal issues. It has traditionally been used both long-term, and upon the onset of symptoms.
Elderberry can be used by adults and children
Elderberry is found in many adult products, but also in many products for children. Its naturally sweet berry flavor makes it one of the easiest children's immune support products to administer; kids usually love the taste!
