    Elderberry is a fruit of the elder tree with medicinal properties. Elderberries can help treat a cold, get rid of coughing and improve your digestion.

    The benefits of elderberries are due to the many vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants in the fruit. You can also help prevent getting the flu or a cold by making your own elderberry syrup.

    Elderberries and elderberry preparations are a popular remedy in traditional medicine.

    Taking elderberry syrup at the first sign of a cold or flu infection could help prevent the infection from developing.

    A placebo-controlled, double-blind study showed that 93.3% of flu patients given Sambucol (a formulation of elderberry extract) were completely symptom-free within two days.
