What Is Sambucus nigra (Elderberry) Extract?
Sambucus nigra extract is derived from the small black fruit of the elder tree (Sambucus). The berries are highly toxic in their raw form and must be cooked before being consumed. Once cooked, they are loaded with health-boosting properties. Sambucus nigra has been used for centuries as a folk remedy and is considered one of the world's most healing plants. Its history dates back as far as 400 BC, and Hippocrates, the “Father of Medicine,” called the elder tree his “medicine chest.”
