Historically, elderberries were used in homeopathic remedies for a variety of ailments. Native Americans used it to treat infections, and Egyptians used it to improve complexions, for example. In the U.S. today, elderberry is most often taken as a supplement to support healthy immune function.
More research is needed to fully understand everything elderberry has to offer, but one thing is certain: a diet filled with antioxidant-packed foods is one of the best strategies for maintaining a strong immune system. And elderberries are rich in powerful immune boosters: antioxidants like flavonoids, vitamin C, and vitamin A.
