Elderberries are small, dark berries that grow in clusters on elder trees (also called elderberry bushes) and are very common throughout Europe and North America. They have a long history of human use, from food, to wine, and even for medicine. Nutritionally, elderberries contain large amounts of vitamin C, potassium, and beta-carotene, as well as calcium and phosphorous. Medicinally, elderberries have been proven in quite a few recent studies to shorten the duration of cold and flu symptoms (from 6 days of flu down to only 2), as well as strengthen the immune system. They are a natural diuretic and detoxifying agent and have been shown to help with weight loss. The flowers can help to restore the skin, sooth sunburns and rashes, and even help with sore muscles when steeped in oil and massaged in.
