Q: What are elderberry gummies good for?
A: Elderberry was traditionally believed by European and Native American herbalists to be good for pain relief, healing, infections, coughs and skin conditions. There have been some recent studies that have shown elderberry might have an impact on the duration and severity of colds and flus and it is typically used to help support a healthy immune system.
Q: Is it safe to take elderberry gummies daily?
A: It is safe to take elderberry gummies daily, especially since they are manufactured by a well-known company like Garden of Life. Elderberries are a fruit, so there is no daily recommended value. You can eat elderberry gummies to your heart’s content - however be aware that like any high fiber fruit, too much fiber can upset your stomach! Also important to note that while taking an elderberry supplement from a reputable manufacturer is safe, it is not safe to consume raw elderberries.
Q: Who shouldn’t take elderberry?
A: Since elderberry is typically used as an herbal remedy, there isn’t enough clinical evidence to say who may or may not be able to take elderberry. Here is a good starting point: if you are pregnant, lactating, or taking any prescription medication consult your healthcare professional before consuming any natural or herbal products to make sure it is safe for you!
Q: Is elderberry scientifically proven?
A: There have been a handful of clinical studies on the effects of elderberry, but not enough for the scientific community to come to a consensus and agree on the powers of natural elderberry consumption. In these studies, the results showed elderberry potentially having an impact on the immune response to colds and flus by reducing the duration and severity.
