The shiny black berries of the elderberry bush are bursting with useful ingredients: Vitamin C, provitamin A, B vitamins, fruit acids, essential oils, tannins and minerals strengthen the immune system and protect the cells.

As healthy as they are - you shouldn't eat the black berries raw: only when heated does the substance called Sambunigrin, which is also contained in them, decompose and can lead to stomach problems.
