The Health Benefits of an Elderberry Supplement
Deep blues, purples and reds in a fruit or vegetable indicate a foodstuff that can offer you significant benefits to your health. Naturally, there are exceptions to this rule, as there appear to be to any rule, and you would not benefit much from the deep purple fruit of the deadly nightshade, but it's generally true of recognized edible fruits such as elderberry. These colors indicate a strong concentration of substances known as polyphenols, flavanoids and anthocyanins - the term 'cyan' refers to the color blue - which are strong antioxidants and anti-inflammatories with significant benefits to your overall state of health.
In fact, many take an elderberry supplement when they catch a cold or influenza, not necessarily because elderberry constituents can cure these conditions, but because it alleviates the symptoms and speeds up recovery. Most of the symptoms of colds and flu are due to your immune system - the inflammatory response part of the immune system to be precise. Unfortunately, this part of your body's defenses against infection can also cause you a great deal of pain and discomfort.
Elderberry helps to alleviate that pain and discomfort by moderating the immune system to be kinder to you, although still enabling it to overcome the infecting organisms. So although elderberry may not cure you, it will help you to feel better more quickly so you get the impression of being cured faster.
