The Benefits of Elderberry Powder

Elderberries (also known as sambucus nigra) are a dark purple fruit that is native to Europe. Various parts of the elderberry tree have been used to treat illnesses for centuries, and elderberries are a popular remedy for the cold and flu today. You will often find elderberry syrup and gummies at your local drugstore. 

FeelGood Organic Superfoods recently launched our Elderberry Powder. Gluten-free and vegan, this powder is packed full of nutrients! It’s fortified with a 5:1 organic elderberry extract to provide you with more powerful flavonoids.

Elderberry powder has a  slightly tart, berry taste and can be easily incorporated into your drinks. You can even make an elderberry superfood cocktail

Why should you take elderberry powder?

Elderberries are filled with natural flavonoids. These elements are excellent for reducing inflammation while boosting the immune system. The elderberry has linked with benefits surrounding flu, headaches, throat soreness, and general aches.

Scientific research has linked the elderberry to over a dozen health benefits. These berries have historical use in natural medicine for relieving pain and inflammation. Its bark is also a common diuretic and laxative.

Elderberries are packed with nutrients

Elderberries have significant amounts of both vitamin C and dietary fiber. They make up an excellent supplement to any diet. You can also find plenty of flavanols and phenolic acids, to avoid oxidative stress. Anthocyanins are another compound present in elderberries to reduce inflammation.

Flu and cold benefits

The extract from elderberries have also shown enough evidence to suggest their benefits combating influenza. It can combat both the virus’ length and symptom strength. While larger-scale studies are still necessary to confirm these benefits, current results for research have been quite promising.

Antioxidant properties

Both the elderberries themselves as well as their leaves have excellent antioxidant benefits. It’s worth noting that it’s purely based on their substances, and further testing on humans and animals is still necessary. Still studies suggest that elderberries are some of the most powerful antioxidants.

Heart benefits

Studies on elderberry juice point towards lower fat levels and decreases in bad cholesterol. Flavonoids in your diet are also famous for their benefits reducing heart disease risk. Further research is still necessary. Other studies with mice suggest that black elderberry diets reduce cholesterol levels solely in the aorta and liver. Uric acid blood levels might also be reduced.
