Elderberry has long been known for its immune-boosting properties and is one of the most commonly used medicinal plants in the world. As a consumer it can be overwhelming to sift through the copious amount of elderberry products on the market today.

Consider these questions:

  1. Where is the product produced? (home kitchen, commercial facility, etc.) And by whom?
  2. What consumer safety practices are used during the production and bottling of the product?
  3. Is the product third party lab tested?
  4. Does the product require refrigeration or not? (Tip: Products that do = less preservatives)
  5. What is the product sweetened with?

Also, read the label carefully and look for the following information:

·       Common name and botanical name of the active ingredient and how much is contained in this specific product

·       Whether it is the actual berries or an extract used

·       Expiration date that has not yet passed

·       Name and contact information of manufacturer
