While the flu-fighting and immune boosting benefits of the elderberry are centuries old, a recent study, conducted at the University of Sydney, demonstrated, that the phytonutrients in elderberries can directly inhibit the flu virus’s entry into human cells and foil its replication, thus help strengthen the immune response to the virus . It’s effect is noted in the early stages of infection by blocking the way the virus enters the cells of the body. However, inhibiting the way the virus replicates during the later stages in the influenza cycle. This is significant, because blocking the viral infection and potentially shortening the duration of the flu. Additionally, the researchers noted that elderberry stimulated the release of certain cytokines – chemical messengers that the immune system uses to coordinate a more efficient response against invading pathogens.
