Why this year's hottest children's nutrition products have added elderberries?
Many mothers are saying that elderberries have been added to many children's nutrition products this year. So are elderberries really so popular? What is the specific effect?
Elderberry is a natural plant with a very long history of medicinal use in Europe and America. From the name "elderberry", you can tell that it is a berry. Elderberry is rich in anthocyanins and flavonoids, effective against more than a dozen viruses including the influenza virus, and also has a strong antioxidant effect.
The cyanidin-3-glucoside contained in elderberry binds to the active site of ceramidase, so the virus cannot get out and can only survive in the only host cell.
In addition, elderberry's effect on the flu is to relieve symptoms, shorten the course of the disease, and reduce cold medication.
