Quantum Health - Elderberry Immune Defense Liquid Extract - 2 oz. (60 mL)
Elderberry Liquid Extract (LE) is best for those who wish to rely on a premium dosage of elderberry in a high-uptake form. The LE is most appropriate in times of heightened immune system challenge.
Elderberry has been used in herbal traditions for centuries. Today elderberry has been found to promote healthy immune system cells through its general antioxidant support. It also appears to positively affect macrophage activity.
One dropper-full provides 700 mg of Sambucus nigra extract. Elderberry LE provides the fastest absorption potential and the highest dose of all our elderberry products.
Parts Used and Where Grown
Numerous species of elder or elderberry grow in Europe and North America. Only those with blue/black berries are medicinal. The flowers and berries are both used. Species with red berries are not medicinal.
Historical or Traditional Use
Elderberries have long been used as food, particularly in the dried form. Elderberry wine, pie, and lemonade are some of the popular ways to prepare this plant as food. The leaves were touted by European herbalists to be pain relieving and to promote healing of injuries when applied as a poultice. Native American herbalists used the plant for infections, coughs, and skin conditions.
