The Anti-inflammatory Properties of Elderberry

Elderberry is rich in anti-inflammatory phytochemicals such as vitamin C, beta-carotene, flavanoids, Quercetin and anthocyanins. Although some believe it to also possess antiviral properties, this may be only because it relieves the inflammatory symptoms of viral colds and influenza. The reaction of your body to such infections is to trigger the immune system to eject the invading viruses, resulting in the formation of catarrh, sneezing and coughing.

Another reaction of the immune system is a temperature increase, designed to create unfavorable conditions for the survival of viruses and bacteria. This is the fever that is often associated with influenza. Vitamin A and C are antioxidant vitamins that also help protect you from the more extreme effects of the inflammatory response of your immune system. Elderberry can be taken for colds and flu, and also other catarrh and mucus-inducing conditions such as bronchitis. Its anti-inflammatory properties are also useful in alleviating some of the symptoms of neuralgia and arthritis.

Elderberry as an Antioxidant

Elderberry is the fruit of the sambucus nigra, better known as the elder tree. It is a rich purple berry that anybody with knowledge of the relationship between the colour of fruits and vegetables and their phytochemical properties will understand is highly suggestive of powerful antioxidant properties.

Antioxidants such as elderberry are named such because they prevent oxidative damage of body cells by oxidizing agents such as free radicals. These small molecules possess free electrons that have only one purpose in their entire existence, and one that they satisfy immediately they are born: to combine with another electron, and in so doing oxidize and potentially destroy the source of that electron.

Free radicals cause LDL cholesterol to bock your arteries, they destroy your skin cells and make you look older than you are and they cause inflammation and prevent wounds from healing. An elderberry supplement can help to prevent all of this by destroying free radicals.
