The Benefits of Elderberry As A Health Support
Elderberry sounds like something straight out of a fantasy book, but it is a real thing, we promise! Elderberries are clever little berries that have been used for centuries as a health support against ills and chills. While adults benefit greatly from supplements, so do children who are constantly on the go and want to be ready to take on every opportunity without being held back! Let’s investigate this natural health support, then, and find out the real deal about Elderberries and how they benefit our children’s daily defences!
First up! What is Elderberry exactly?
Elderberry is actually a name that covers a whole range of varieties of the Sambucus tree, which is a flowering plant native to Europe. Its most common variety is the Sambucus nigra - more commonly known as black Elder or the European elder. The berries themselves are found in small clusters of blue or black bunches amongst the foliage - and despite being a popular edible when cooked - they should never be consumed raw. Besides being very tart to the taste, they can be poisonous when uncooked. The berries have been used for centuries, dried or cooked to treat ills and chills and a number of other problems in ancient healing practises. Today, Elderberry is still a popular supplement to support the body’s natural defences as well as being absolutely delicious when made into jams, juice, pies, chutneys and other treats!
Elderberries and their benefits are so popular as a supplement because Elderberries are so nutrient-dense! These tiny berries are loaded with natural antioxidants which support the body’s defence system and acts as a cleanser, are high in vitamin C to support immunity and give your body the best possible defence against ills and chills all year round!
