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; assist supporting performance, enabling longer and harder workouts. It also aids to 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. A new concept, known as the “gut-lung axis,” suggests that the bacteria in our gut may also directly impact lung health. Evidence supporting this connection comes from studies showing that those with the highest intake of anthocyanins had lower rates of declining lung function, compared to individuals with the lowest intake of anthocyanins. 

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. With 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, muscle and immune function, supporting heart health.

“Life is too short to have boring hair.” - Unknown

Elderberries are literally infused with innate anti-ageing and free radical fighting properties. They keep your skin radiant for longer periods. Furthermore, they also act as a natural detoxifying agent and help prevent distressing skin conditions like breakouts, boils, and scars. The anthocyanins in Elderberries (the compounds that give them their characteristic red colour) were found to give a natural boost to your skin’s health. This compound also protects against skin damage. In fact, distilled Elderberry flower water is known to restore skin health and lighten the freckles. The berries and oil work great for your hair as well. You can take some Elderberry oil and mix it with some of your other favourite oils. Apply the oil gently on the problem areas of your scalp.

how to use elderberry oil

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 purple and dark red colours. These pigments contain high concentrations of antioxidants. The brighter or deeper the colour of the berries, the higher the flavonoid concentration will be. Because of its deep, almost black colour, 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.

Full Body Nourishment - Elderberry

Elderberry Seed Oil contains glycoside bonds, plant sterols, carotenoids, flavenoids, and tocopherols (Vitamin E). The structure of the plant sterols is similar to the skin's own cholesterols counted among the most important fats in the lipid layer of the stratum corneum (corneal layer), meaning that these cholesterols, in their function of forming an intact barrier layer, can be supported by the plant sterols. 
“Miss Parkinson lived alone in a big bay-windowed house of Edwardian brick with a vast garden of decaying fruit trees and untidy hedges of gigantic size. She was great at making elderberry wine and bottling fruit and preserves and lemon curd and drying flowers for winter. She felt, like Halibut, that things were not as they used to be. The synthetic curse of modern times lay thick on everything. There was everywhere a sad drift from Nature.”  — H.E. Bates

Elderberry Seed Oil furthermore has a stimulating effect upon the cell membranes and blood vessels, and is supposed to be able to strengthen resistance toward infections, allergies, and carcinogens. Elderberry Seed Oil is gentle and safe and provides a good measure of both unsaturated and saturated fats, making it a great choice for both skin and hair. This luscious oil absorbs quickly and is deeply penetrating. It nourishes thoroughly, softening dry, rough skin. It can smooth out wrinkles for a more delicate appearance, and reduces inflammation, pigmentation and the appearance of blemishes such as dark spots or fine lines by stimulating a healthy collagen production to counteract signs of ageing and damage from free radicals.

Elderberries and Immunity

A surprising amount of research has actually been carried out on Elderberries... Several studies speak of the ability of Elderberries to boost the immune system. One report published by the University of Maryland Medical Center revealed the powerful immune-boosting effects of Elderberries. The same is true with Elderberry syrup as well, which increases antioxidant levels in the body and helps fight disease. The vitamins A and C in the fruit help maintain optimal health. Elderberries also offer protection against viruses that might damage cell walls. The fruit also decreases mucus production during cold and flu, easing the symptoms. And it is one excellent remedy for the debilitating symptoms of influenza, as per a Japanese study.

Elderberries boost immunity by increasing the production of inflammatory cytokines. And this way, they also help treat upper respiratory tract infections and other respiratory ailments. We can conclude that this powerful natural oil is effective throughout the seasons and an essential for your home because of its multiple uses. The relationship between elderberry and immune system health is primarily related to the reduction of oxidative stress on internal tissues by the antioxidants and anthocyanins found in elderberry fruit and flowers. Oxidative stress is caused by the release of free radicals in the body and the damage these particles do to muscle and organ tissue. In one study of 15 different berry types, Elderberries were shown to be some of the most potent sources of antioxidants.

Elderberry Oil Promotes Good Bacteria

When consuming Elderberry Oil’s anthocyanins, only a small amount of these compounds are absorbed in the small intestine. Instead, the bulk of these flavonoids enter the large intestine where they are broken down by gut bacteria. During this process, gut bacteria “modify” the structure of anthocyanins into an array of molecules that slows the growth of “bad bacteria”. In addition, anthocyanins provide beneficial bacteria with substances that promote their growth. Modified anthocyanins are then rapidly absorbed through the colon and enter the bloodstream. Once these vital compounds reach the blood circulation, they provide support for the organs such as the lungs, heart, skin, and brain.

Elderberry Seed Oil... Closing Thoughts

Elderberry is a medicinal plant that has been used for thousands of years. Several species of the elderberry plant grow throughout the world, with the European elder plant (Sambucus nigra) being the most common type. Historically, many different parts of the elderberry plant have been used to address infection, cough, congestion, joint pain, and skin irritation. The fruits (elderberries) are now the most commonly used part of the plant for supporting respiratory and immune health. Elderberries are the violet-black berries that contain significant amounts of anthocyanins which are vital molecules known for their powerful antioxidant and immune-supportive properties.

Elderberry Oil’s anthocyanins are highly bioavailable flavonoids that promote the health of several body systems. Consumption of a colourful diet abundant in anthocyanins is associated with good cardiovascular health, proper respiratory performance, glucose control, and cognitive health. New research suggests that anthocyanins contained in Elderberry Oil promote a healthy balance of gut bacteria. Including Elderberry Oil with other supplements such as vitamin D, zinc, omega-3, curcumin, and probiotics are likely to act synergistically in supporting immune and respiratory health.
