What Are Elderberries?

Elderberries are the fruit of the Sambucus tree. Native Americans and European herbalists have long used elderberries for their range of health benefits. The small black-colored berries have the perfect sweet-tart balance with just a hint of earthiness.

Elderberries are well known for their immune-boosting properties and their ability to help counter the symptoms associated with cold, flu, and other respiratory infections. They are also packed full of antioxidants.

You can enjoy the benefits of elderberry in many ways including eating cooked elderberries as a flavoring in foods and wine and also in jams, pies, and other treats. Additionally, one of the most common ways to get elderberry is through wholesale elderberry gummies, extracts, and supplements.

Add them to popsicles, and you have a tasty treat that not only packs a powerful healthy punch but also helps soothe an achy throat and offers much-needed hydration.
