How does Elderflower work?

Elderflower might work like insulin to lower blood sugar.

Are there safety concerns?

Elderflower seems to be safe for most people when used in small amounts as part of a combination product containing elderflower, sorrel, gentian root, verbena, and cowslip flower (SinuComp, Sinupret). There isn't enough information to know if elderflower is safe when used in medicinal amounts other than as part of the combination product. The combination product can cause digestive system upset and occasionally allergic skin rash.

Do not take elderflower if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • You have diabetes.
  • You are scheduled for surgery in the next two weeks.
