Elderberry - Loose Leaf Botanical
Elderberry is a widely used medicinal plant that has been cultivated since early Egyptian times. Elderberry can refer to several varieties of the Sambucus tree, which is a large flowering tree that also produces fruit. The most common variety is the European Elderberry, also known as Black Elder. When speaking of common elderberries, it is in reference to Sambucus nigra exclusively. It is important to note that many species of elderberry trees besides Black Elder produce poisonous berries. The fruits of an elderberry tree are extremely tart and bitter and are usually cooked before being consumed.
Elderberry is predominantly commercially prepared for cold and flu relief. The berries contain natural antioxidants and Vitamin C. Like many other berries, elderberries are commonly used in jams, jellies, preserves, tinctures and syrups for great flavor and added wellness benefits.
