Why Are Elderberry Shots Good For You? 6 Science-Backed Elderberry Shot Health Benefits

Elderberry, the fruit of Sambucus nigra has been an underground remedy for centuries in holistic tribes and communities for a number of ailments. Even when consumed in small quantities in diluted form, this berry has proven its abilities time and time again.

Incorporating this rare yet essential ingredient can be difficult if it’s not normally a part of your day-to-day regime. Adding a wellness shot each morning will easily become routine and your body will thank you for it!

Science-backed reasons why we recommend elderberry as part of your wellness routine:

  1. Rich in Antioxidants: Elderberries are rich in many nutrients including anthocyanins, which have a high antioxidant activity. This means they work to reduce free radicals (negative toxin build-up in the body responsible for promoting disease and infection) lowering the risk of chronic disease and promoting health and longevity.
  2. Promotes Weight Loss and Regularity: Elderberry fruit acts as a gentle laxative and detoxifier, making this fruit a great remedy for constipation or to help weight loss. 2 Studies have also shown that regular consumption of elderberries can result in a lower BMI (body mass index) and overall quality of life.9
  3. Promotes Pain Relief: According to a number of resources, elderberries exhibit a reduction in pain and can be used as a natural painkiller against a number of inflammatory conditions including migraines, sciatica, and neuralgic pain.3-6
  4. Antibacterial and Antiviral: Extract of elderberries can help fight pathogenic bacteria responsible for infection specifically in the upper respiratory tract. Not only is this a great remedy for prevention, but if you’ve fallen behind on your daily dose and you get hit with something, the anti-viral properties mentioned above work fast in reducing the length and intensity of most common viruses!
  5. Blood Sugar Balancing: A study performed in 2017 showed blood sugar improvement and reduced insulin resistance in diabetic subjects when given an extract of elderberry over a 30 day trial. Of course, anyone with a chronic blood sugar imbalance, including Diabetes, should talk with their doctor before making any significant dietary changes.
  6. Better Mental Health: Say goodbye to the winter blues with regular consumption of elderberry (even in diluted form), studies have shown improvements in mood and even antidepressant potential! Anyone taking regular antidepressant pharmaceuticals should talk to their doctor before trying elderberry as a substitute or additional remedy for mental health. 9,10
