Elderberry, also known as Sambucus nigra, has been used for centuries as a natural herbal remedy for those who fall ill.
Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, referred to elderberry as “nature’s medicine chest,” and it has been noted as early as the 5th century BC as a medicinal tonic – forever cementing it as a staple in human nutrition.
But, it wasn’t until recently that we understood WHY it is so helpful to the body. And with this understanding came advanced methods of harnessing the incredible power of this medicinal plant.
And it all comes down to two simple things:
When you combine the above with a healthy dose of vitamin C, there is no question that your body will thank you.
When you suffer from any strain of the flu, it feels like your body is engaged in a fight to the death against the virus. The fever, aches, restlessness, bad dreams, and everything else that comes can be summed up in two words: utter misery.
Elderberry contains nutrients that are a secret weapon in this struggle: anthocyanins. In addition to numerous other health benefits (more on that later), these highly potent phytochemicals bind directly to receptors on influenza and other viruses, thereby inhibiting their spread and helping to kill them off.
One elderberry study was conducted during a flu outbreak in the 1990s with astonishing results:
Only 16% of the group who didn’t take the elderberry solution felt any improvement within the first two days, and it took almost a week for the majority to start feeling improvements.
The results available from elderberry preparations are similar to those of antiviral medications, but with one major difference: no side effects.
The antiviral properties of elderberries have been demonstrated in numerous other studies over the last several decades, leaving there no question in anyone’s mind that elderberry is one of the most potent natural flu remedies in the world.
In addition to being a potent weapon against the flu, elderberry offers countless other health benefits. The moniker “nature’s medicine chest” is, honestly, well deserved. In addition to the virus-fighting anthocyanins, elderberry contains a wide range of bioactive compounds, including:
After careful scientific study over the last several decades, the many health benefits elderberry brings to the table include:
It is also often used to treat countless medical conditions, including constipation, joint and muscle pain, headaches, kidney problems, neurodegenerative illnesses, skin conditions, stress, HIV, and AIDS.
Studies have shown that not only does elderberry directly fight against viruses, but it also enhances your immune system’s ability to launch a coordinated offensive against invaders. It does this by increasing and modulating your system’s ability to release cytokines – the signaling molecules that create targeted inflammation to kill off foreign invaders. This increase in cytokine production speeds up and improves your immune system’s rapid response to unwanted antigens that have entered your blood.
In other words, elderberry enhances the immune system response of anyone – whether they are healthy, have any illness, or have the flu.
Vitamin C has been known for decades as a critical component of human health, and specifically for immune health. It is known as an essential vitamin, which means your body cannot synthesize it, and it must come from outside sources.
As you probably know, oxidative stress is a condition in which free radicals have “gone wild” and are out of balance with the level of antioxidants in your blood. Oxidative stress is a precursor to countless severe medical conditions, including:
Vitamin C is one of the most potent antioxidants that helps reduce and avoid oxidative stress. Those who consume Vitamin C daily have seen up to a 30% boost in blood antioxidant levels – a more significant improvement than almost any other antioxidant supplement.
Some further benefits of Vitamin C include:
Drawing from decades of scientific research and experience as both a clinical physician and athlete, Dr. David Minkoff combined the health benefits of elderberry with those of vitamin C to create the perfect immune-support drops.
Because it isn’t just “elderberry” or “vitamin C” – it’s the quality, ratio, and potency of the ingredients that make a difference.

So-called “energy drinks” litter the shelves in health food stores and grocery stores. Each brand promises to deliver the energy boost you need for workouts or just to make it through the day.
The sad truth is that most commercial drinks and drink powders come with a steep price to your health.
Most of the popular brands contain stimulants such as caffeine and high levels of sugar. They make you feel jittery and wired, with a crash that comes soon after.
If you wake up feeling tired and groggy, suffer from an afternoon crash, or simply live with a general feeling of lethargy – you are not alone.
According to statista.com:
Another survey found that 60% of Americans feel more tired over the last 12 months than ever before, especially with the huge socioeconomic shift that has so many people now working from home.
If there is anything society has come to realize over the last century, it is that women are just as powerful, smart, ambitious, and capable as men. And while society as a whole is still catching up as far as true equality, the facts are evident when you look at some of the most incredible and influential people today.
When it comes to fitness, however, men and women are not the same. The natural, physiological differences necessitate unique approaches to achieve optimal results. While the fundamental science behind attaining a shredded, lean physique is basically the same for both sexes, the exact steps and application require careful consideration.
