What are the Health Benefits of Elderberry?



“We were introduced to the health benefits of elderberry some three years
ago by our local pharmacist in WA, who insisted that all his staff use it as a preventive, given their exposure.

Our whole extended family now uses it at the first sign of, or any exposure to,
colds or ‘flu and we use 6 bottles on average, per year.” Paul S, Western Australia


It is rich in anti-oxidants


Throughout history the humble Elderberry (coming from the Elderberry plant) has been known for its health benefits. The elderberry fruit berries are reputed to have nearly 3 times the antioxidant value of cranberries and blueberries. They are rich in bioflavonoids, especially anthocyanin which are responsible for their deep purple (almost black) colouring.


Packed with minerals like iron, potassium, phosphorus, and copper, vitamins, (vitamin A, B, and C), as well as proteins and dietary fibre. They also contain beneficial organic compounds that function as anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents in the body.


The health benefits of Elderberry


Elderberry has a reputation as a “cold and flu” superfood, with its health benefits  acknowledged throughout history and in recent clinical research.


Elderberries have historically been used for managing:



  • colds and flus 

  • asthma

  • arthritis

  • allergies

  • diabetes

  • irregular bowel activity

  • helping with weight loss

We don’t make any guarantees about the effectiveness of our syrup in treating any ailment. What we can claim is that our Ashbolt Farm Elderberry concentrate tastes great, is delicious in so many ways, and contains concentrated elderberries handpicked from our grove.


It can help protect you against influenza


Elderberry has been proven effective against eight different influenza viruses. The study indicated that it may provide protection against a wide range of flu viruses, solving the problem of the “mutating flu”, because most strains of the virus use the same enzyme mechanism to penetrate cells.


Norwegian studies reported in The Journal of International Medical Research, have shown that Elderberry juice (sambucus nigra or black elderberry) not only stimulates the immune system, but also directly inhibits the influenza virus. The active ingredients in the Elderberry were found to halt the spread of the virus by disarming the enzyme responsible for attacking cell walls.


The study showed that on average, flu patients given the elderberry extract recovered within 3.1 days, compared to 7.1 days for those given the placebo. Researchers also found that the patients who took the Elderberry fruit extract also had higher levels of antibodies against the flu virus. Great to use during the cold and flu season.


Other studies published by The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that nearly 90 per cent of flu patients given Elderberry extract were completely free of symptoms within three days, as compared to at least six days with a placebo.


Whilst the properties of Elders have long been touted, it is not intended that it be taken as a substitute for a flu vaccine. Please consult your doctor.


A great source of Vitamin C


Elderberry Syrup is very high in Vitamin A and C and bioflavonoids, and may be taken as a prophylactic against the common cold and flu season.


If taking for colds and flu, you can take a tablespoon of Ashbolt Farm Elderberry Syrup neat, or mix a spoon with soda water or hot water according to your taste (add ginger or lemon as well if desired). You can take a little every hour or so until the worst symptoms of the cold pass, then as often as you wish. 


Unlike most over-the-counter cough medications, Ashbolt Elderberry and Elderflower does not contain added preservatives or alcohol. On top of that it has a fabulous taste, and can be safely given to young children. If in doubt though, seek medical advice.


Elderberry Is A Natural Support for Arthritis


The diuretic and anti-inflammatory properties of Elderberries make it a powerful aid in the treatment of rheumatic and arthritic conditions.


Elderberry Can help you regulate bowel activity


Elderberry syrup has a long-established effect in regulating bowel activity, by moderating the extremes of diarrhoea and constipation.


We don’t make any guarantees about the effectiveness of our syrup in treating any ailment. What we can claim is that our Ashbolt Farm Elderberry Concentrates taste great, are delicious in so many ways, and contain concentrated elderberries handpicked from our grove.
