Is a daily spoonful of Black Elderberry good for you? Absolutely! 

The journey from plant to your home begins with the Elderberry tree (actually a tall flowering plant) known scientifically as ‘Sambucus”. Primarily grown in Europe, there are many different varieties of the Sambucus, like the premium Haschberg variety of European black elderberries (Sambucus Nigra) harvested for our Sambucol Black Elderberry Syrup and other Sambucol products. Historically, the flowers, leaves and even the bark have been used in folk medicine.

Today, the elderberry has emerged as a champion and “the new kid on the block” according to The Annual Pinterest ‘Popular Health and Wellness Trend’ report.  This is not surprising as the most common benefit of elderberry syrup is natural immune support.


You may have heard the saying; ‘the darker the fruit or vegetable, the healthier it is for you’. This is credited to the nutritional powerhouse of Flavonoids. Existing in rich amounts, flavonoids are found in dark colored fruits, making the purple elderberry one of the most outstanding antioxidant foods known. 

Antioxidants at large have also been found to neutralize free radicals—unstable atoms that can damage other cells if left to their own devices. This may help build a stronger immunity that is able to encourage a healthier and more balanced well-being.

In addition to these benefits, other benefits of Elderberry Syrup are flavonoids. Flavonoids are also loaded in essential vitamins; A, C and E. Vitamin A often works as an antioxidant, fighting cell damage, and it also has many other uses from supporting bone density to supporting proper functioning of eyes and skin health. Given its beneficial properties, vitamin E has long held assistance as an immunity enhancer by protecting cells from free radical damage. Vitamin C is one of the most important water-soluble vitamins and essential to our bodies for enhanced antibody production.

The combinations of these three vitamins floods your body with good-for-you nutrients and with all of these remarkable components and health benefits blooming from the elderberry we should be consuming them on the regular.
