For thousands of years humans have used elderberry to fight colds and flus. Plenty of research shows that it's is a potent anti-viral herb. Even so, due to limitations of what supplement companies are allowed to claim, Kansas City based, Wyldewood Cellars Inc. are being treated like criminals by the FDA. U.S. marshals seized their elderberry juice products for the FDA based on claims that Wyldewood is promoting and distributing their products as drugs.
Between the attack on raw milk and now on this beneficial herb with proven health benefits, it seems that the FDA is out of control.
