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 remedies.
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.
