Benefits of Elderberry
Natural Support for Arthritis
The diuretic and antiinflammatory activity of elderberries helps explain its use in rheumatic and arthritic conditions. Elderberries are a dark blue, purplish berry that is both rich in color and nutrition. These berries contain very high amounts of the polyphenol anthocyanin, which give them their dark color. Anthocyanin's antioxidant ability allows the berries to survive periods of intense UV light radiation from the sun. These antioxidants are passed on to those who consume the berry and provide anticarcinogenic benefits.
