Sambucus Nigra Researchers’ Conclusions
No satisfactory medication to cure influenza type A and B is available.

The H1N1 (swine flu) inhibition activities of the Sambucus nigra elderberry flavonoids compare favorably to the known anti-influenza activities of Oseltamivir (Tamiflu; 0.32 microM) and Amantadine (27 microM). J Altern Complement Med. 1995 Winter;1(4):361-9
Note: Side effects of Tamiflu are nausea and vomiting. Tamiflu is not recommended during pregnancy or breast-feeding. Jul;70(10):1255-61. Epub 2009 Aug 12

Several in vitro studies together with two exploratory studies in humans and one open study in chimpanzees indicate that the aqueous elderberry extract Sambucus nigra may be useful for the treatment of viral influenza infections. Jun 22. Phytother Res. 2009
Sambucus nigra elderberry extract seems to offer an efficient, safe and cost-effective treatment for influenza. J Int Med Res. 2004 Mar-Apr;32(2):132-40
Sambucus nigra could therefore have immunostimulatory properties when administered to patients suffering from influenza. Isr Med Assoc J. 2002 Nov;4(11 Suppl):919-22
Sambucus nigra elderberry extract and its formulations activate the healthy immune system by increasing inflammatory cytokine production. Sambucus nigra might therefore be beneficial to the immune system activation and in the inflammatory process in healthy individuals or in patients with various diseases.
