Looking to ward off evil spirits, and the common cold? Look no farther than these organic dried elderberries. Harvested for thousands of years, elderberries were believed by ancient European mystics to protection from witches, while practitioners of folk medicine believed them to be an effective treatment for colds and influenza. Let's examine why there might be some truth to this belief. (To clarify, we're talking the folk medicine, not witches!)
1. Elderberries are high in Vitamin C. According to modern food science, there are between 6-3 mg of Vitamin C per 100g of berries, which accounts for up to 60% of the recommended daily intake.
2. Elderberries are a good source of phenolic acid. A powerful antioxidant, phenolic acid helps reduce damage from oxidative stress in the body.
3. Elderberries are rich in anthocyanins. A compound that gives the fruit its characteristic dark purple-black color, anthocyanins are another strong antioxidant with anti-inflammatory effects.
We can feel the cold vanishing already! Add these flavorful dried berries to your herb and fruit blends and promote healthy living!
