What is Elderberry?

Elder plants are native to large portions of Europe, and for centuries elderberries have been turned to as a remedy for a variety of conditions, including:

  • Easing the symptoms of the cold and flu
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Minor skin conditions
  • Headaches
  • And more

With such a broad range of benefits, CandyCan knew elderberry had to be a component of our IMMUNITY Gummies! Elderberries are also high in vitamin C, dietary fiber, and other important nutrients, increasing their nutritional impact and support of your body’s healthy function.

      So what gives elderberries their immune-boosting properties? Research points to a compound they contain called Anthocynanins, which is also responsible for the distinctive dark coloration of the berries. Research suggests that anthocyanins are strong antioxidants which can reduce inflammation. Inflammation is part of your body’s natural immune response to infection, but it’s also what causes you discomfort, so reducing inflammation is a great way to feel better while your body fights off infection. Who knew nutritional candy could offer more than just a mood boost if you’re feeling under the weather!

      Elderberry can’t keep you from getting sick, but studies do show that treatment with elderberry extract can significantly reduce the amount of time you suffer from symptoms and get you back on your feet more quickly. So, keep a bag of CandyCan Immunity handy during cold and flu season or while you’re travelling, a great-tasting low sugar candy that can help you keep moving no matter what the world throws at you!
