These tiny berries pack a massive punch against bugs threatening the immune system. Native Americans have used Elderberry, both the flowers and the berries, for centuries to ward off sicknesses when the body needs a fighter in its corner. Like the people behind Buddha Teas, Native Americans were opposed to wastefulness and used the rest of the tree for musical instruments, dye, and arrow shafts.
