In short, elderberries are powerful berries proven to lessen the duration and intensity of viruses. Our syrup also contains hibiscus, rosehips, and echinacea, which work synergistically with elderberry to prevent and fight illness.
From ncbi.nlm.nih.gov: "In recent times, elderberry has gained popularity in research and the wider community due to its reported antioxidant, antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating, as well as antidepressant properties. The berries are dark violet-black drupes which grow in clusters and owe their color to the anthocyanins; a group of phenolic compounds which, amongst flavonoids, are abundant in elderberries and considered the active constituents of the fruits. However, elderberries also contain a variety of nutrients ranging from various vitamins (A, B1, B2, B6, B9, C and E), trace elements such as Cu, Zn, Fe and minerals such as K, Ca and Mg to phytochemicals such as carotenoids, phytosterols and polyphenols. These additional constituents and activities make elderberries a likely candidate for beneficial nutritional and/or medical supplementation not only for respiratory, but also for cardiovascular and mental health."
