Dr. Jill’s Commentary
From my book, A Light in the Dark for PANDAS & PANS:
“This remedy is easy to get into kids. Black elderberry syrup tastes sweet. Parents often use it as a mixer or chaser for the other more bitter herbs.
Black elderberry is primarily used for viral infections, yet it also has mild activity against Strep. It reduces the duration and symptoms of the common cold and influenza, such as fever, pain, congestion, and cough. Reduced duration and severity equate to reduced inflammation. It’s also high in antioxidant bioflavonoids, which further reduces inflammation. Reduced inflammation is exactly what your child’s brain needs.
A meta-analysis of randomized-controlled clinical trials poses it as a “a potentially safer alternative to prescription drugs for routine cases of the common cold and influenza.” I have found this to be true in practice.”
