Elderberry is one of the most effective herbs for preventing and treating colds and upper respiratory infections, eczema and other skin disorders, and to reduce pain and inflammation. It may also be helpful for patients with diabetes, as it fosters increased glucose uptake out of the blood into the tissues. Elderberry stimulates the immune system and has shown some activity in preliminary trials against viruses such as herpes simplex and HIV.

In folk medicine, elder flowers are used internally as a tea for colds and fever. Elder flower also serves as a gargling mixture for respiratory disorders such as coughs and head colds. It has been used by nursing mothers to increase lactation. Elderberry has been used for swelling and inflammation. Homeopathic remedies exist for inflammation of the respiratory tract. Elderberry is approved by the German Commission E for coughs and bronchitis as well as for fevers and colds. It also may be good for hay fever and sinusitis.

Asthma, bronchitis, influenza, and sinusitis. Elderberry contains substances that disarm the neuraminidase enzyme of flu viruses, preventing them from penetrating healthy cells. It has been shown to be effective against eight strains of flu virus; vaccines are usually only effective against one or two types. Once infected, elderberry has been shown to speed recovery by as many as three days. A clinical trial of elderberry syrup (Sambucol) found that it cured 90 percent of flu infections within seventy-two hours. In the same trial, patients receiving a placebo needed six days for recovery. Later these same investigators found that 15 milliliters of the same syrup four to five times a day shortened symptoms by four days. Those using the elderberry also were less likely to use other symptom-relief medications. Elderberry also relieves nasal congestion, fever, and sore throat.


 Recommendations for Use

Elderberry is best used in the form of Sambucol, a patented herbal medicine from Israel that is active against various strains of viruses. The daily dose is 10 to 15 grams. It also comes as tinctures and is used in teas. It is preferable to use Sambucol rather than unprocessed elderberries. Some reported side effects include dizziness, headache, convulsions, and rapid heartbeat. Large dosages of elderberry juice can also cause uncontrollable diarrhea. Uncooked or unripe berries can cause nausea and vomiting. The stem of the plant should be avoided due to its cyanide content.

Elderberry should not be used with patients who have diabetes or low blood iron. The herb seems to form a complex with iron, which may become toxic in the blood.
