Black elder (Sambucus nigra L.) has a long ethnobotanical history across many disparate cultures as a treatment for viral infection and is currently one of the most-used medicinal plants worldwide.... While the extent of black elder's antiviral effects are not well known, antiviral and antimicrobial properties have been demonstrated in these extracts, and the safety of black elder is reflected by the United States Food and Drug Administration approval as generally recognized as safe.

Symptoms were relieved on average 4 days earlier and use of rescue medication was significantly less in those receiving elderberry extract compared with placebo. Elderberry extract seems to offer an efficient, safe and cost-effective treatment for influenza.

Elderberry has been used for hundreds of years to fight colds and flu; it’s high in anthocyanins, antioxidants that protect the cells from damage and activate the immune response. In one study, elderberry was more effective than echinacea or propolis in activating the immune response. Other studies have confirmed the antiviral properties of elderberry, and suggest that taking elderberry at the first sign of illness can substantially shorten the duration of flu, and may be especially effective in treating upper respiratory tract infections.

Elderberry: Traditionally used against colds and flu, there is indeed laboratory evidence that elderberry is active against the influenza virus. A study in humans showed that an elderberry extract could soothe the symptoms of the flu and shorten the duration of the illness.

One laboratory study demonstrated that anthocyanins taken from elderberries helped protect blood vessels from free radical damage, suggesting it could be beneficial against cardiovascular disease.
