What is an Elderberry?
Elderberries are small, purple-black berries with a tart taste that are rich in nutrients, antioxidants, and flavonoids, which help support the immune system.* The plant has been used since the fifth century AD, and it was valued by both Native American and European herbalists throughout history. While today it is more common to see the berries used in herbal preparations, the flowers and leaves of the Elder plant have also historically been used.*
