Fundamental Number One: Kick the Crud

Elderberries are packed full of antioxidants and vitamins. They are known for their ability of preventing upper respiratory infections, as well as shortening the duration of colds or the flu. Elderberry has a protein called hemagglutinin. This protein prevents the virus from entering the cell wall, making it unable to replicate.

Fundamental Number Two: Anti-Inflammatory

Antioxidants help to protect the body against free radicals, helping to reduce the damage caused by oxidation. Oxidation is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in the body. When there is an imbalance, this can lead to cell and tissue damage which causes inflammation. Too much of an oxidative state, can lead to chronic inflammation. This is where your body is continually fighting to get back to its originally healthy state. When this occurs illness, pain, and increased inflammation can be seen and felt.

Fundamental Number Three: Weight Loss

Like most fruits, elderberry is very high in fiber. This can assist and help regulate you in your weight loss journey.  It has also been shown to help with constipation, upset stomach, bloating, and other stomach ailments.

Fundamental Number Four: Heart Health

Elderberry has a great source of potassium. Where there is potassium, there is sodium. These two electrolytes help in the regulation of blood pressure. This is because the more potassium you consume, the more sodium you will excrete through your urine.  Potassium also helps to decrease tension on the cell walls to help regulate blood pressure. Both electrolytes ensure that the blood vessels are relaxed, making it easier for blood to flow.

Fundamental Number Five: Bone Health

Worried about osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis? Like previously mentioned, it not only helps with inflammation but is also high in calcium which helps to strengthen and increase bone density.

Fundamental Number Six: Mental Health

Elderberry contains a flavonoid called quercetin. Flavonoids protect our bodies against everyday toxins and stressors, which in return helps to fight off free radicals. Quercetin has not only been shown to decrease inflammatory markers found in the brain, but also decreases anxiety levels.

Fundamental Number Seven: Skin 

The flower of the elderberry has been shown to
help with breakouts, boils, inflammation, and scarring. It has a naturally
detoxifying property that helps to fight free radicals and has been shown to
have anti-aging properties.
