Sambucus nigra extract is derived from the small black fruit of the elder tree (Sambucus)
Sambucus nigra has been used for centuries as a folk remedy for symptoms of the common cold.
Sambucus nigra (elderberry) is rich in vitamins and minerals and loaded with antioxidants.
The possible effects of elderberry come from its high levels of antioxidants. These substances protect your cells from damage caused by free radicals.
Free radicals are molecules that your body releases as part of normal metabolism. They are unstable and can react with other substances they encounter, causing a chain reaction that creates more free radicals.
A buildup of free radicals can lead to oxidative stress that contributes to diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer.
Antioxidants can help you stall this process by providing a stable molecule to counteract the unstable one. This can prevent the creation of more free radicals, which helps slow down or prevent cellular damage.
The elderberry is perhaps best known for its purported immune-boosting effects due to its high bioflavonoid content (bioflavonoids are antioxidant plant nutrients that may help improve health or prevent disease.These substances protect your cells from damage caused by free radicals.
Elderberry is probably one of the best natural immunity boosters, it helps you stay feeling your best and supports the body’s immune defenses to stay feeling healthy

Similarly, another study reported that elderberry has several properties that allow it to fight off the flu. Other studies have evaluated the effects of elderberry on cold and flu symptoms in humans.
This research conclude a significant effect of elderberry on cold duration and cold associated symptoms was detected in their trial. Travellers using elderberry from 10 days before travel until 4–5 days after arriving overseas on average experienced a 2-day shorter duration of the cold and also noticed a reduction in cold symptoms.
Elderberries stop the virus from replicating in the body because it prevents it from being able to cross the cell wall. There have been studies done about it being used for strep throat and also in its ability to cut down the length of an illness by at least half.
In addition to phenolic acids, six flavonoid compounds were identified in elderberry juice. The dominant flavonoids were quercetin-3-O-hexoside, quercetin, and rutin.
