Content: 30 ml dropper bottle (500 mg of organic Elderberry fruit extract in every ml)
Anna’s Remedies Elderberry Liquid Extract is made with the purest, richest elderberry fruit thoughtfully-sourced from European elderberry growers. It contains 500 powerful milligrams of organic berries in every milliliter naturally preserved in GMO-free alcohol and water for easy absorption. Our Elderberry Extract is also gluten free and Kosher certified.
Elderberry is one of the most effective herbs to fight colds and the flu. Studies show that it helps shorten the discomforts of respiratory illnesses and body aches. The herb helps deactivate viruses by neutralizing the action of hemagglutinin (HA), a glycoprotein that allows viruses to bind to the cell surface.
Elderberry Liquid Extract can be used several times a day for acute cold or flu infections, but it is also advisable for use as a protective measure throughout the flu season. Our liquid extract is a highly concentrated source of anthocyanins, effective antioxidants contained in red, purple, and blue fruits and vegetables. Anthocyanins enhance immune function and protect the body against disease.
In addition, Elderberries hold the flavonoids quercetin and rutin and the vitamins A and C. The extract can be taken on a long-term basis to increase resistance to illness and help rebuild a healthy immune response. With its high concentration of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, Elderberry Liquid Extract is also recommended to counteract allergies.
It can be taken directly in the mouth or added to water or juice. For children under 12, always mix our rich Elderberry Extract with at least 4 ounces of water or juice. Due to its richness, our Elderberry Liquid Extract may contain small amounts of herbal particles. It has a round flavor with berry sweetness.

Did you know that elderberries have an array of additional health benefits? Elderberry extract supports cardiovascular health because the fruit helps reduce the oxidation/build up of LDL or bad cholesterol, a contributing factor for stroke and heart attack. It can help decrease the risk of atherosclerosis (the hardening of arteries) and lower total cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
Sambucus/black elderberry is also beneficial for anyone with poor night vision as it helps to regenerate retinal pigment and protects against retinopathy, or the accumulation of blood in the retina.
Perhaps not surprisingly, elderberry helps minimize stress and can shorten the time needed to recover from strenuous physical exertion.
Elderberries contain a higher amount of antioxidants than any other berries, including blueberries and goji berries. This makes them an excellent natural treatment for a variety of allergies.
Anna's Story: Elderberry supplements are a staple in health-conscious European households. They are kept handy for the above mentioned healing purposes, and elderberry juice is a refreshment enjoyed by children and adults. As children, we would often have liked a sweeter form of elderberry juice, but added sugar was not allowed in my grandmother's medicinal recipes inspired by all things natural growing in her extensive vegetable and herb garden.
