The Elderberry is the fruit of a genus of between 5 and 30 species of shrubs or small trees in the moschatel family, Adoxaceae. Black elderberry has been used medicinally for hundreds of years. Some preliminary studies demonstrate that elderberry may have a measurable effect in treating the flu, alleviating allergies, and boosting overall respiratory health.
