Elder was used as a food in ancient times but it also has an extensive history of medicinal usage. Extracts of elder berries have been shown to inhibit the replication of the influenza virus, making it a suitable herb for the treatment and prevention of the common cold and flu.
Elderberries also contain large amounts of flavonoids, which act as antioxidants. As well as tannin, amino acids, carotenoids, sugars, rutin, vitamin A, B, and C.
Free radicals are unstable molecules that in their bid to become more stable must bump into healthy cells and cause damage. Elderberries antioxidant properties neutralize free radicals and therefore reduce damage to tissues all over the body, including those that are infected. Research done on elderberry anthocyanis shows that it can enhance the immune system by boosting cytokines. It is also believed that elderberry extracts may reduce oxidation of LDL ("bad") cholesterol.
Elder flowers act as a diuretic and diaphoretic, aiding the body in the release of excess fluid through the kidneys and the skin (via the sweat). Elderflower tea can be used as a wash over skin irritations and because of its antibacterial and antiviral properties it may help to alleviate allergies and boost the immune system. Topically, elder flower may help to reduce joint pain and swelling in the joints due to some forms of arthritis and can helps to stop bleeding.
