Elderberry Natural Health Powerhouse
Elderberry is best known for supporting respiratory and immune health, especially during seasonal challenges. A study of patients experiencing symptoms, like sniffling, coughing and acute headache for 48 hours or less, received a dose of elderberry multiple times a day for five days. Compared to the control group, symptoms were relieved, on average, four days earlier. However, research suggests these purple-black berries may be valuable for far more than just immune and respiratory health. Elderberry is also known to: Promote a normal, healthy stress response. Support performance, enabling longer, harder workouts. Support cardiovascular health. Promote healthy cellular ageing. Support an already healthy inflammatory response.
Researchers believe elderberry supports levels of cytokines – or proteins that act as messengers in your immune system. Cytokines promote a sufficient and timely response to everyday threats, seasonal or otherwise. Because much of your immune system is located in your gut, elderberry may support immune function by nourishing your gut’s microbiome. Elderberry’s anthocyanins are well known for their ability to eliminate reactive oxygen species (ROS) that can damage your cells’ mitochondria. By incorporating themselves into the outer membranes of your cells, these antioxidants protect your cells against the damaging effects of oxidative stress. Anthocyanins have a profound effect on your cardiovascular health. The endothelial cells that line your vascular system play a crucial role in blood flow regulation and overall vascular tone. By promoting healthy, normal blood flow to your organs and skin, anthocyanins support healthy organ function and help prevent premature cellular ageing. Researchers also believe the anthocyanins in elderberry supports healthy HDL and LDL cholesterol levels already in the normal range. Anthocyanins are easily absorbed, too, and can cross your blood-brain barrier to benefit your eyes and brain. One study with elderly women detected anthocyanins in both plasma and urine after just a single dose of elderberry. They also contain magnesium, which plays a role in nerve and muscle function, immune function, bone health and energy production.
The Immune Boosting Berry of Folklore
A Supernatural Fruit
Elderberries are a low-calorie fruit, they are high in nutrients and antioxidants. Their precise nutritional content depends on the ripeness of the fruit, environmental conditions, and the plant variety 100g of fresh elderberries contain only 73 calories and will provide 28% of your daily fiber requirement. Plus, the fruits are rich in vitamins – such as vitamin C and provitamin A (carotenoids) and minerals, this include iron, potassium, and phosphorus.
As a whole tree we can see there are so many incredible elements, the leaves, berries, and flowers are high in antioxidants (flavonoids, phenolics, and anthocyanins) that lower oxidative stress and balance the immune system. Elderberries have the highest amount of flavonoids compared to 28 different species of berries. Some common preparation methods can lower certain nutrients and antioxidants, such as high extraction temperature, cooking, or juicing. Expectedly, elderberry teas, juices, jellies, and wines will be lower in active components than the fresh herb or its standardised extracts. Here Ancient Purity present the slow air-dried fruit, ground into powder.

Elderberry Revered throughout history
Elderberry according to Hippocrates – “Nature’s Medicine Chest”
Native Americans and European herbalists have long respected elderberries for their unique health-promoting qualities. Records of their use date back to medieval times. In 400 BC, Hippocrates, the father of medicine, referred to elderberry as “nature’s medicine chest.” Research shows the European black elderberry offers broad immune support benefits along with extremely high antioxidant activity properties. The berries and flowers of the elderberry are loaded with antioxidants, or anthocyanins, as well as flavonoids like quercetin, delphinidin and catechins. Elderberries contain nearly four times the anthocyanins as other commonly consumed berries.
Anthocyanins are a type of flavonoid, or the natural pigments that give fruits and vegetables their colours. These pigments contain high concentrations of antioxidants. The brighter or deeper the colour, the higher the flavonoid concentration. Because of its deep, almost black color, elderberry is considered the “King.” Research suggests that a higher consumption of anthocyanins is linked to an already healthy inflammatory response, optimal cardiovascular and cellular health, restored glucose tolerance and lower body weight. The anthocyanins in elderberry support not only immune health but also cardiovascular and cellular health. And when consumed with meals, they can help maintain healthy blood glucose levels.
Elderberry... A Supernatural Solution
Mitochondria & Cardiovascular
The anthocyanins in Elderberries (especially cyanide-3-glucoside) are well known for their ability to eliminate reactive oxygen species (ROS) that can damage your cells’ mitochondria. By incorporating themselves into the outer membranes of your cells, these antioxidants protect your cells against the damaging effects of oxidative stress. Anthocyanins can have a powerful effect on our cardiovascular health. Endothelial cells that line your vascular system play a crucial role in blood flow regulation and overall vascular tone. By promoting healthy normal blood flow to your organs and skin, anthocyanins support healthy organ function and help prevent premature cellular ageing.
Many researchers also believe the anthocyanins in elderberries actually support healthy HDL and LDL cholesterol levels already in the normal range. Anthocyanins are well absorbed, too, and can cross your blood-brain barrier to benefit your eyes and brain. One study with elderly women detected anthocyanins as bioavailable glycosides in both plasma and urine after just a single dose of a standardised elderberry extract. Antioxidants in Elderberry function by donating electrons to free radicals, which helps reduce their levels. Reducing free radicals not only helps prevent damage, but also eases the soreness associated with exercise. Feeling less stress and discomfort after working out can help you train harder and more often. Elderberry also contains magnesium, an important mineral that plays a role in nerve and muscle function, immune function, bone health and energy production. The unique combination of magnesium and antioxidants may result in less buildup of lactic acid during exercise that can also shorten recovery time.
