Elderberries come from shrubs and small trees in the family Adoxaceae in the genus Sambucus. They are also called elder. Most are from temperate or subtropical forests in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres. They are important as shrubs in gardens and forests, and their berries are used to make wines, jellies, pies, and medicines, as well as to feed animals.
Elderberry plants lose their leaves in the fall and are usually shrubs or small trees with many stems. The leaves have leaflets that are toothed and grow on opposite sides of the stems. The plants have flat to round clusters of tiny yellowish-white saucer-shaped flowers, which are followed by small red, blue-black, black, or yellow berries. Elderberries are easy to make a part of their natural environment, and some of them are considered invasive outside of their native range.
Since ancient times, both the berries and the flowers of the elder plant have been used to make medicine. Both boost the immune system and fight off infections, but elderflowers have some extra uses that other herbs don't have.
◉ Cooking with Elderflower - Use the cordial or the dried flowers in cakes, tarts, jams, pies, or pancakes. The blossoms taste great with tart fruits like rhubarb. They're also delicious baked with strawberries and raspberries.
These summer flowers are light, floral, and tasty. They can be used in just about any dish. I've even seen recipes for elderflower yogurt!
◉- Elderflower is also good for your health because it helps keep your blood supply healthy. This means it can be used as a tonic. As a cold infusion, it can help the body get rid of toxins and can help with constipation in particular.
It's also good for people who want to take care of their skin. When waste can't leave the body through the bowels or kidneys, it often tries to leave through the skin. Bitters and elderflower can help you get rid of waste better and have healthier skin because elder is also a diuretic.
◉ Fighting colds and flu - There is evidence that elderberry can help treat colds and flu, even though the studies that have been done so far are small. 60 people who had flu-like symptoms took 15 milliliters (ml) of elderberry syrup four times a day.
Their symptoms got better 4 days before those who took a fake medicine did.
Researchers found that the capsules didn't stop the symptoms from happening, but people who took elderberry had milder symptoms that didn't last as long..
◉ Treating acne - Elderberry fruit has a lot of flavonoids, which means it might help reduce inflammation and fight free radicals. These help keep free radicals, which can cause skin problems, from hurting healthy cells.
The American Nutrition Association (ANA) says that an antiseptic face wash made with elderberries can help fight acne.
