Elderberries are a low-calorie food packed with antioxidants. They are high in vitamin C and fibre and are a good source of phenolic acids, which are potent antioxidants, and of the flavonols quercetin, kaempferol, and isorhamne. They have been associated with numerous health benefits including helping to reduce the severity of colds and flu, supporting the immune system, reducing cholesterol, uric acid, and blood sugar levels, fighting bacteria and reducing depression.
