Elderberry also exerts anti-inflammatory effects, reducing swelling and pain by tempering the body's immune response. As an antioxidant, anthocyanin works by clearing the body of free radicals that damage cells at the DNA level. It also has antiviral properties that may prevent or reduce the severity of certain common infections. The berries and flowers of elderberry are packed with antioxidants and vItalian that boost your immune system. They can help tame inflammtion, lessen stress, and help protect your heart, too.

These nutrients have potent antioxidant power found to be the most effective antioxidant. The antiseptic affects have been researched to show overall skin improvements. Anthocyanins are known to reduced inflammtion. Those in elderberry do so by inhibiting the production of nitric oxide by the body's immune cells. Nitric oxide serves as a signaling molecule that triggers inflammation in response to injury or disease. By tempering this response, pain and swelling may be relieved.
Elderberry syrup has been used for centuries as a home remedy to treat the cold and flu, both of which are caused by a virus. The syrup is believed to reduce the severity and duration of the infection if taken within 48 hours of the first symptoms.
