Elderberry and how it can support your immune system

The emergence of Coronavirus has led many of us to research ways to boost our immunity through lifestyle including what supplements to take to improve immunity? In the tenth of this series, with Maria’s expertise as an Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM) practitioner we look at how can you support your immune system in light of the Coronavirus:

“Continuing this series, I look at the immune supportive power of Elderberry.

Elderberry (Sambucus nigra) is a vitamin C and antioxidant-rich herb traditionally used to treat infections and heal burns.

Today elderberry is mostly taken in supplement form to help reduce cold and flu symptoms. Recent research has shown it may be effective in helping to reduce the severity of respiratory viruses. You can find elderberry extract in either tincture or capsule form from a reliable and reputable herbalist.”
