Pukka’s Seasonal Wellbeing
Nov 2, 2016
The elder tree has a rich and varied history of culinary, medicinal and folklore uses. For centuries it has been associated with warding off evil and providing protection from witchcraft. In more recent times it has become better known for warding off the evil of colds and providing protection from flu.
- The berries are a rich source of Vitamin C, Anthocyanins and Flavonoids all of which are powerful antioxidants that protect the body from free radicals.
- Elderberries have a strong affinity for the respiratory system and encourage the process of expectoration reducing acute and chronic mucous congestion.
- Elderberries are incredibly soothing and will coat the mucous membranes, alleviating sore throats and irritating coughs.
- Elderberries have also been shown to neutralise the neuraminidase enzyme and prevent viral proliferation in the respiratory mucous membranes, neutralising 8 strains of flu virus.
