What are the health benefits of the recently popular elderberry?

Elderberry (Elderberry or elder) is a species of elderberry, native to Europe, Africa, and parts of Asia. The berries of this plant are gaining popularity in the United States due to their perceived potency. Common uses for elderberries are nutritional supplements and immune system maintenance.

Elderberry flowers and berries contain powerful antioxidants and anthocyanins, as well as micronutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin B6, iron, and potassium.

Health Benefits of Elderberries

1. Rich in antioxidants

Elderberries contain very good antioxidants; they contain quercetin and anthocyanins, two important compounds that help protect against oxidative stress. Quercetin is considered one of the most antioxidant-rich compounds in a healthy diet. It is a potent compound that may help promote a healthy response to inflammation, control pro-inflammatory markers, and protect the skin.

2. Promotes immune system health

The antioxidant anthocyanins in elderberries have general immune-boosting effects.

3. Promote skin health

Because elderberries are rich in vitamin A, some topical skin care products also contain elderberries. Vitamin A helps maintain skin health and supports healthy skin aging.
