Where to Find Elderberries
Elderberries (Sambucus nigra) are found mid-autumn, especially in mountainous areas, in the valleys of rivers and streams, where the sun’s rays penetrate more difficult, and the vegetation cycle of this plant is delayed. Most often we find the elder in the edges of the forest, and forest roads, in the forest cuts where the trees have not yet regenerated, and where the small shrubs grow luxuriantly.
How to Harvest Elderberries
Harvesting elderberries is done in the mid-autumn season when they are ripe, namely sweet and sour in taste. Cut the bunches of berries from the branches. Use the berries three to four hours after picking maximum, or keep them in the fridge for a maximum of 24-48 hours before processing. Detach the elderberries from the bunches and dry them in a dehydrator at 40°C/104°F until they look like raisins. You can also dehydrate them in the oven with the door slightly open at the lowest temperature, by layering them in one layer on the oven tray. Store the dried elderberries in paper bags, in dry and dark places.
How to Make Elderberry Powder
To make the elderberry powder grind the dried elderberries as finely as possible using an electric coffee grinder and keep them in a glass jar. Use over the course of a few days to enjoy maximum healing benefits.
How to Use Elderberry Powder for Eye Problems
The dark pigments in elderberries, as well as vitamins, and minerals have exceptional healing properties for the eyes. For this, you can have 3-4 teaspoons of dried elderberry powder on an empty stomach daily for 3-4 weeks. This simple remedy helps improve night vision and can help improve eyesight. The same dosage is also recommended for avitaminosis, diarrhea (dried elderberries have the opposite effect to fresh ones that work for constipation), and colitis.
Elderberry Side Effects
Elderberries are very powerful as a remedy, but like any medicine ingested in too high doses, they can cause unpleasant side effects such as vomiting, heartburn, throat inflammation, and breathing difficulties. The dangerous doses are 200 grams of fresh elderberries or elderberry juice and 300 grams of elderberry tincture per day.
