The berries of the black elder plant (Sambucus nigra) have long been used in folk medicine to address cold and flu symptoms. Elderberries contain many bioactive compounds and nutrients, including anthocyanins, flavonols, vitamins A and C, calcium and iron. Notably, anthocyanins, the compound which gives the berries their characteristic dark colour, have been studied for their supportive role in immunity and for their anti-viral effects. They are also well-known antioxidants.
Antioxidants are molecules that protect your body from harmful free radicals. Free radicals, when left unchecked, are the root cause of oxidative damage – similar to the process that takes place when metal becomes rusty, but in your body cells! Scientists believe the continuous exposure to free radicals is a major cause of ageing and many degenerative diseases.

Q: What are antioxidants?
A: Antioxidants are compounds (such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, bioactives, phytonutrients like anthocyanins) that have been shown to inhibit cellular damage from oxidation. Daily life and effects from pollution, inflammation, and illnesses all contribute to cellular oxidative damage. It is important to consume foods that contain antioxidants to help with our general health.
