Elderberry (Sambucus nigra) is one of the most powerful natural antivirals out there. The tincture made from elderberries has an amazingly strong antiviral action hardly matched (if) by any synthetic drug on the market.
An eminent Israeli researcher, Dr. Madeleine Mumcuoglu revealed elderberry extract blocks class A and class B viruses from penetrating the cells of the human body. The results of her studies are staggering and jaw-dropping!
But there’s even more to elderberry tincture than just its antiviral property, something you didn’t expect. Elderberry tincture is especially effective in weight loss! So if you ever wondered…
Elderberry Tincture for Weight Loss Is it Any Good? A True Story.
The answer is YES! Elderberry tincture is a great natural supplement for weight loss, with no side-effects whatsoever. The only thing to look into is to pay attention to the dosage and use it correctly.
I personally know someone who has some 20 kg (44 lbs) over her normal weight.
She started taking elderberry tincture to start losing the weight. Over the course of 3 months, she lost around 15 kg without much effort. She continued to eat the same but in the first two weeks, she felt her bowel transit working better and she started eliminating water without retaining it.
Right off the bat, she lost 3 kg (6 lbs) during the first couple of weeks. She continued the intense treatment with elderberry tincture and, in addition to losing weight while eating the same amount of food, at one point she began to no longer feel the same urge to eat. Her appetite was adjusting to her new, normalized weight without making an effort to refuse foods or overindulging.
By the end of the 3 months she managed to lose almost 15 kg (33 lbs), and now only this, but her appearance changed for the better. She had better-looking skin from the first few weeks of taking the elderberry tincture. Her skin turned lighter and more glowy and overall she looked many years younger than her actual age. This is perhaps due to the detox action of the elderberry tincture.
So yes, elderberry is great for weight loss as well as making one appear younger and fresh.

Reduce the elderberry tincture dose or discontinue the treatment if diarrhea persists. If by any chance you experience bloating during this treatment, take 1-2 teaspoons of cumin or fennel powder daily.
