Elderberry is a fruit that grows on the tree of the genus Elderberry, a honeysuckle plant. It has a long history of medicinal use in Europe and America. It is completely different from the elderberry in Chinese herbal medicine in China. It is not the same species. The stems, leaves, and flowers of elderberry have certain medicinal value, and elderberry has anti-virus and anti-oxidant effects;
The raw material we usually use is European black elderberry. Compared with other origins, elderberry contains higher bioflavonoids, anthocyanins, polyphenols, polysaccharides, and antioxidants. These anthocyanins and biological substances Flavonoids have antiviral and immunomodulatory effects.
Black elderberry contains many kinds of anthocyanins, among which the most abundant is cyanidin-3-glucoside, which is a kind of anthocyanin monomer, so it is often used as an activity calibration for black elderberry products. It is used for accurate calibration of content. Elderberries are rich in anthocyanins and flavonoids, which are effective against more than a dozen viruses, including influenza viruses, and also have a strong antioxidant effect.
Of course, other berries, such as blueberries and mulberries, also have antioxidant effects. However, in terms of the content of antiviral active ingredients, and the synergistic effect of the various active ingredients contained in the berry itself, there is still a certain gap between them and elderberries. To put it simply, although the same is a berry, everyone has different skill attributes. Some are good at eye protection, and some are particularly good for the skin. The advantage of elderberry is to enhance immunity.
In 2020 statistics, elderberry health supplements ranked third in sales in the European and American markets, and the growth rate ranked second. From these two dimensions, the market share of black elderberry is self-evident.
