No black Elderberry for autoimmune condition???
I've been taking black elderberry syrup because it is more alkaline — trying to avoid acidic fruits, etc. I had to buy one today that is a different brand. In reading the side of the box it says "Caution: Not recommended for individuals with autoimmune conditions." I have LP which has exhibited in gums, vulva, legs, and feet at various times over the years. I can't see that it is causing an increase at all and wondering if others with LP know any more about this warning.
Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Autoimmune Diseases Support Group.
I’m glad it’s been successful for you. Before my transplant I did take it all the time and seemed to work well to ward off colds. It grows in Vermont, so lots of local tonics available.
Thanks for your comments. Pray you do well going forward with your transplant.
Has anyone has any negative/positive reactions to taking elderberry? Don’t know if that’s overkill or a needed boost!!
Hi @klpintx, You will notice that we merged your post with an existing discussion on elderberry supplements and also added the discussion to the PMR group. I posted some information and warnings in a post earlier in the discussion here – https://connect.mayoclinic.org/comment/633612/.
Have you taken Elderberry and had any reactions?
