For those of you joining in or following along with the discussions here and elsewhere on whether or not elderberry should be used during the current outbreak of COVID-19, we’ve rounded up our clinical herbalists to put together
this resource for you. Because elderberry is already a common part of supportive care during cold and flu season, it’s natural to be curious about whether it’s an appropriate herb to use with this virus!
We hope this resource is helpful to you.
There has been a great deal of discussion here and elsewhere on whether or not elderberry should be used during the current outbreak of COVID-19. For many of us, elderberry is already a common part of supportive care during cold and flu season. Naturally, we’re curious about whether it’s appropriate for use with this virus, and a lot of discussions continue to circulate online. (Discussions have included both elderberry and elderflower, with some herbalists considering these interchangeable and others finding nuances.)
