Elderberry: Lozenges vs. Extract vs. Syrup

The small purple berries called Elderberries (Sambucus nigra elderberry) are well-known potential remedies to help during signs of a weakened immune system. Research suggests that elderberry extract may help reduce the severity and duration of a weakened immune system. Some studies have also indicated that elderberries may potentially help lower cholesterol, uric acid, and blood sugar levels.

There are many elderberry supplement options available. We'll go over the top three types of elderberry supplements in this article.

3 Common Forms of Elderberry

Lozenges: Elderberry lozenges offer a convenient and flavorful way to consume elderberry extracts, which have anti-inflammatory and immune-supporting properties that can help relieve sore throats and coughs. They are usually flavored and sweetened to make them into a more palatable form for those who dislike the taste of the extracts.

Extract: Elderberry extract is a powerful antioxidant, about three times as powerful as blueberries, that helps reduce oxidative stress and inflammation. It can be easily added to one's diet or beverages. Commercial extracts are processed to remove toxins and are primarily used in supplements for those who want added antioxidants, without consuming extra sugar or additives.

Syrup: Elderberry syrup is a sweet and tasty liquid made by boiling elderberries with sugar or honey. It is an herbal remedy to support immune health. Children often prefer it because it is versatile in foods and beverages like smoothies, yogurt, or even pancakes.

Can Elderberry Help Ease Symptoms of The Flu?

Studies suggest that elderberry may help to shorten the duration and relieve cold and flu symptoms, allowing the body to recover faster.

When body cells are busy defending free radicles, flu viruses can take over our bodies, making them more susceptible to illness. Elderberries contain high levels of antioxidants, which can support the immune system in fighting free radicals.
