Elderberries contain vitamin C, proanthocyanadin flavonoids and antiviral proteins. Elderberry syrup, extract or glycerite is very useful for treating colds, influenza and other viral respiratory disorders. The flavonoids help to strengthen capillary integrity especially in the eyes and reduce histamine production by the sinus mast cells. This reduces allergic symptoms and sinus irritation.
