These past years have taken a toll on all of us. Some of us have felt anxiety, fatigue, and stress, which in turn, weakened our immune system. According to Gallup, the stress levels in the workplace had gone from 38% in 2019 to 43% in 2020 (3). So, there is a high chance that we have been neglecting our health. 

  

Elderberry, Sambucus nigra, is a medicinal plant that contains a rich source of antioxidants and vitamins. For centuries, it has been used as a medical remedy to treat headaches, stress, respiratory issues, joint and muscle pain, etc. The usage of Elderberry is still as effective in treating ailments since the Ancient Greeks. In fact, Greek physician, Hippocrates, also known as “the Father of Medicine,” had even considered the elder tree as his “Medicine Chest” (9). Many centuries have passed, and Elderberry is still of great assistance. 

 

Is elderberry worth adding to your daily regiment, our bets on YES!

 

Due to environmental stressors that occur in our daily lives, it is most important to look after one’s health to avoid developing diseases or cancers. According to the National Library of Medicine, scientists have found that antioxidants are a great way to halt the development of such illnesses, “Antioxidants are compounds that hinder the oxidative processes and thereby delay or prevent oxidative stress” (10). By the way, there are high levels of antioxidants in Elderberry! Approximately 14,700 ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) (26).  

Taking Elderberry daily helps strengthen your immune system, eases inflammation, and promotes a healthy heart! (9). *

What is Vitamin D? 

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that we need to promote bone growth and strength*

When you hear Vitamin D, your mind goes right to the sun, but there are so many other ways to get your daily dosage!

For example, taking supplements or eating foods that have high vitamin D levels like fatty fish, egg yolk, dairy, even mushrooms!  

Fun fact: Humans and mushrooms both naturally produce vitamin D through sunlight! (4).

Neglecting your vitamin D intake can result in a deficiency that can create bone pain, muscle pain, fatigue, etc. But at the same time, vitamin D deficiency does not only mean limited sun exposure, but it also occurs due to diet, pregnancy, or age (7). Implementing a daily intake of vitamin D is sure to strengthen and maintain your health.*
