elderberries

{Sambucus nigra}

General: Elderberries have traditionally been used for making wine, syrup, and confectionaries. The flowers and berries of these plants have been used most often for medicinal purposes.

Skin Benefits: Elderberries are rich in a variety of phyto-nutrients that exhibit both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, such as caffeic acid, chlorogenic acid, ferulic acid, and quercetin. The fruit also contains anthocyanins, which have been shown to help boost the immune system, bioflavoinoids that tighten skin, decreasing the appearance of wrinkles.
