“Elderberry tincture or syrup is a mainstay in many herbalist’s apothecary as the go-to herb at the very initial signs of a cold or the flu. Taken at onset, elderberry can reduce the duration of colds and the flu because it interferes with virus replication and strengthens cell walls to inhibit viral penetration” (Hoffmann, 2003).
"Elderberry is probably most commonly thought of and utilized as a flu remedy, as it
directly inhibits the influenza virus’s action. An Israeli study led by researcher Madeleine Mumcuoglu, Ph.D.,
discovered that “The influenza virus forms tiny spikes, called hemagglutinins, which are laced with an enzymes called
neuraminidase. The enzyme helps the virus to penetrate the cell walls of a healthy organism. The virus then sets up shop in the cell, reproducing more viruses.” The active ingredients that Mumcuoglu discovered in Elder disarm the neuraminidase enzyme within 24-48 hours, effectively halting the spread of the virus. In other clinical trials, 20% of patients reported significant improvement within 24 hours, 70% by 48 hours, and 90% claimed a complete cure after three days. Patients receiving the placebo required six days for recovery. And as of 2001, Elderberry had been proven effective against eight different influenza viruses." HerbRally / Krystal Thompson
