As spring begins and summer quickly approaches, many of us are looking for a refreshing, sweet treat to help boost our immune systems and stay healthy during peak vacation season. One of earth’s best, not so hidden, little secrets is found in the form of a flavorful berry that provides the antioxidants to promote immune support and help contribute to year round health.

For centuries, elderberries have been used to support wellness. The ancient Greek physician Hippocrates was particularly fond of the tiny berry for its potent antioxidant qualities and the University of Maryland Medical Center suggests that elderberries may help maintain healthy sinuses and nasal function.  Today, the effects of the elderberry spans continental divides with North American, European, Asian, and African cultures utilizing them for their overall health and wellness benefits.

Due to its pleasant taste and health-promoting qualities, elderberry is found in several widely accessible wellness products. Elderberries contain vitamins A, B, and C, which help support your immune system.  Additionally, the tiny berry’s extract acts as an antioxidant, protecting cells from free radicals and supporting the immune system.

Enhancing the immune system has a wide range of benefits. While many of us focus on immune support during the winter, it is just as important to keep our immune systems healthy during the warmer months as millions of people across the world travel and hit the road for family vacations and summer activities.



Whether in the form of an immune-boosting vitamin or a tasty drink mix, the nutrients found in elderberries support a strong immune system so we can stay healthy while doing the activities we love.

While the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds found in elderberries can help alleviate joint pain and soreness from inflammation, the high levels of essential minerals will help promote bone strength and the development of new bone tissue. Osteoporosis is a condition that millions of people face in the future, but increasing bone density during your younger decades can delay the onset considerably.
