Health Benefits of  Elderberries

Elderberries truly are one of "Nature's most amazing fruits" for good reason; multiple studies have identified elderberries to have beneficial qualities in maintaining good health.  Elderberries have the ability to "boost the immune system  while assisting in digestive health, skin conditions, bone and joint pain, respiratory health, cardiovascular health, as well as showing signs of  slowing the progression of cancer".  These are just a few reasons why elderberries should become a part of your daily health regimen.

 

Elderberries must be cooked before ingesting, failure to do so can result in illness.

Let’s me explain the benefits of elderberries in more detail. First, Elderberries are small but mighty little dark purple berries.  Elderberries offer high levels of beneficial nutrients such as iron, potassium, phosphorous, copper, protein, and vitamins A, B, and C. Along with blueberries and blackberries; elderberries offer high levels of antioxidants, anthocyanins, flavonoids, dietary fiber, ellagic acid, gallic acid, phytochemicals, quercetin, rutin, and salicylic acid. Thus, providing many health benefits like boosting the immune system, protecting against bacterial and viral infections, slows down the spread of cancer, assists in weight loss, lower blood pressure, and alleviate allergies.
