The Elder Flowers and ripe Elder Berries have long been used as a pleasant article of food, making home-made drinks and preserves, wine and pies, chutney and ketchup. The wine which improves with age, and taken hot with sugar, just before going to bed and is an old fashioned and well established cure for a cold.

The ripen berries pose valuable medicinal properties. It is known as one of the best preventives against the advance of influenza and the ill effects of a chill.

From the days of Hippocrates, Elder has been famous for its medicinal properties. It is believed that since every part of the tree has medicinal properties, virtually every ailment of the body was curable by it. Its properties are summed up as "Everything necessary for a universal remedy."

For centuries the dark berries of European black elderberries have been used for winter ills and chills. In recent years, researchers have proven elderberry’s broad spectrum efficacy in numerous studies.Continuing research suggests that elderberry provides excellent support for the body’s first line of defence against a broad spectrum of viruses.

Science meets age-old tradition with Nature’s Way® Sambucus black elderberry extract, a standardised, Bio-Certified extract, with proven bioavailability and activity within the body for optimal effectiveness.

Outbreaks of seasonal ills and chills are common and according to the World Health Organisation as many as 15% of a population may be affected by one or more strains of virus during an average autumn and winter season.

Although vaccinations are thought to offer some protection, they are often ineffective. As many as half of those vaccinated may suffer complications and the wily viruses can have varied structures which are not affected by the antibodies produced in response to the vaccine.

Elderberry, on the other hand, is safe, natural and appears to work by supporting the body’s own natural ability to effectively fight against a wide variety of viruses.

Best results are obtained when elderberry extract is taken at the onset of viral discomfort. So don't delay. Stock your first aid cabinet with Nature’s Way® Sambucus so you and your family will be well prepared for this year’s seasonal ills and chills.
