GLOSSARY
SAMBUCUS NIGRA (ELDER)

Sambucus nigra (Elder)

 

How does it work?

Elder (berry and flower) is a western herbal medicine used for its immunostimulant, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiviral, diuretic and antidiabetic activity.1 This is due to containing flavonoids, quercitin and rutin; and anthocyanin antioxidants in the flowers and berries, respectively.2 Elder has shown to improve immune system activity through increasing monocyte production and anti-inflammatory mediators as well as providing effective activity against ten strains of influenza virus.3 Elder has also shown to increase insulin secretion and enhance muscle glucose uptake, glucose oxidation and glycogenesis, all actions helpful in balancing blood sugar stabilisation.4 Elder is also effective at improving symptoms of colds, fevers, eye and skin inflammation, bronchitis, sinusitis and chronic nasal discharge.5

What results can be expected?

Elder may help improve immunity and inflammation, particularly with symptoms of and during common colds and influenza.6 Elder may also help stabilise blood sugar levels and improve symptoms of conditions associated with mucus membranes such as sinusitis and chronic nasal discharge.7
