Elderberry: Cure for Cold & Flu?
Modern medicine has come a long way since the dark ages, but our fore-fathers knew some things about herbal treatments for illness. Rhinovirus (the common cold) and influenza (the flu) are no more common now than they were 200-500 years ago, but everyone knows when to prepare for the dreaded flu season. Our current 2017-2018 flu season has been one of the worst on record since 2009’s swine flu pandemic. Products like Sambucus Black Elderberry have been found to help remedy cold and flu symptoms. Check out some of the most useful facets of the healing powers of elderberry.
Relieves Cold and Flu Symptoms
Unless you’re a child who is trying to avoid school, no one likes being sick, especially with huge inhibitors like the cold and flu. Luckily elderberries have immunostimulant effects caused by chemical compounds found in elderberry called anthocyanidins. Additionally flavonoids found in the extract have been proven in several studies to alleviate flu symptoms. With continuous use of elderberry products, there is evidence that a typical flu would be shortened by up to 4 days on average. For colds, or an upper respiratory infection, elderberry works to help strengthen the immune system much similarly during the flu.
With the approach of spring this month, many of us will begin to suffer from allergies due to blooming plants and spores released into the air. We’ve already discovered that there are immunostimulants in elderberry. Much like reducing the effects of sinusitis, elderberry can reduce inflammation that is caused by your body’s immune system overreaction to any irritants in the air. In combination with other herbal supplements, you might even find that your allergies could disappear after continued use.
Beautiful Skin Booster
Your skin is one of the most important organs on your body. It protects exposure to harsh bacteria in surrounding environments, it helps to minimize water loss from your body, and it prevents other organs and other important body parts from being harmed. It’s important to keep your skin healthy to prevent disease and keep your body’s water levels high. Elderberry contains vitamin A, antioxidants, and bioflavonoids which are all great for bodily health, but especially for your skin.
