Elderberries have been a part of medical chests since the days of Hippocrates! You might also see this superfood referred to by its scientific name: Sambucus nigra. Widely known for their antiviral capacity, elderberries have been commonly used to treat cold and flu viruses, sinus pain, and inflammation. They're also a superb source of antioxidants, scoring higher than blueberries, blackberries, cranberries, and even goji berries! As is the case with many herbal remedies, there are many ways to take elderberry. One of our favourites is elderberry syrup which is excellent for treating the symptoms of colds and flus.
