Elderberries for Year-Round Wellness

Elderberries for Year-Round Wellness

Elderberries have long been celebrated for their amazing health benefits. Packed with antioxidants, these small, dark berries have been used for centuries to support immune health and overall wellbeing.*

One of the great things about elderberries is that you can use them all year-round. Whether it's peak winter season or the middle of summer, incorporating elderberry supplements into your routine can provide continuous support for your immune system.*

What Makes Elderberries Special?

Elderberries are nutritional powerhouses, rich in flavonoid antioxidants and vitamins and minerals.

Flavonoids, such as the anthocyanins in black elderberries, contain anti-inflammatory and immune-supportive properties. Antioxidants help combat oxidative stress, protecting cells from damage. Vitamins, like Vitamin C, support immunity and promote overall health. Together, these compounds support the immune system and help boost its ability to fight off illnesses.

Best Times to Use Elderberry Supplements

Should I Take Elderberry Supplements In The Morning or At Night?

A common question we receive at Sambucol is: “Should I take elderberry supplements in the morning or at night?” There isn't a strict rule on timing, but some believe taking elderberry in the morning works best with the body's natural digestion. The morning is when digestive enzymes are most active, helping to break down and absorb nutrients.

Does that mean you need to take elderberry in the morning to get the most out of your supplements? Not necessarily. We recommend taking elderberry every day to help support your immune system year-round.* So take your supplement when it is most convenient for you and when you are most likely to remember - whether that’s in the morning, after lunch, or before bed.

The most important thing is consistency.
