There are multiple scientific studies evaluating the effects of elderberry for cold and flu symptoms (1-4). The strongest available evidence was published by our research team in early 2019 (4). In this study, the FHRF research team found that elderberry is highly effective against cold symptoms and has a powerful reduction effect on both the duration and the severity of the flu.
This study reflects a total of 180 patients. Our team looked at effects on cold symptoms as compared to flu symptoms. We also looked at whether the syrup worked differently in patients who had received the flu vaccine as compared to those who did not.
In this study, elderberry was found to dramatically reduce symptoms of both the common cold and the flu. It was much stronger at reducing the total duration of the flu as compared to the common cold. Whether or not a patient had been vaccinated against the flu had no effect on the strength of elderberry supplementation.
