According to the research article by Natural Standard Research Collaboration, Elderberry has immunological and antioxidant properties.
Dr. Kong conducted a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to examine the efficacy of elderberry extract.
Individuals aged 16-60 with a minimum of three pre-designated flu symptoms were included in this trial and were administered with elderberry extract. After 48 hours of elderberry treatment, all symptoms were eradicated. Investigators concluded that elderberry extract is effective in attenuating flu symptoms in otherwise healthy individuals.

After the discovery of zinc deficiency in the 1960s, it soon became clear that zinc is essential for the function of the immune system.
Zinc deficiency causes severe impairment of immune function, comprising the adaptive as well as the innate immune system. In this regard, zinc can be considered as a gatekeeper of the immune system, since the adequate function of virtually all immune cells is highly zinc-dependent.Thus, zinc can be seen as potentially therapeutic for clinical use to influence beneficially the well-being of patients suffering from immune diseases.
The significance of the essential trace element zinc for immune function has been known for several decades. Zinc deficiency affects immune cells, resulting in altered host defense, increased risk of inflammation, and even death. The micronutrient zinc is important for the maintenance and development of immune cells of both the innate and adaptive immune systems. Disrupted zinc homeostasis affects these cells, leading to impaired formation, activation, and maturation of lymphocytes, disturbed intercellular communication via cytokines and weakened innate host defense via phagocytosis and oxidative burst.References: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5748737/
Vitamin D can modulate innate and adaptive immune responses. Deficiency in vitamin D is associated with increased autoimmunity as well as increased susceptibility to infection.
The implications of vitamin D deficiency on the immune system have become clearer in recent years and in the context of vitamin D deficiency, there appears to be an increased susceptibility to infection and a diathesis, in a genetically susceptible host to autoimmunity.
Vitamin D has important functions beyond those of calcium and bone homeostasis which include modulation of the innate and adaptive immune responses. Vitamin D deficiency is prevalent in autoimmune diseases. Cells of the immune system are capable of synthesizing and responding to vitamin D. Immune cells in autoimmune diseases are responsive to the ameliorative effects of vitamin D suggesting that the beneficial effects of supplementing vitamin D deficient individuals with autoimmune disease may extend beyond effects on bone and calcium homeostasis.
Taking all current evidence together, vitamin D emerges as a promising and relatively safe nutrient for new strategies in the prevention and adjunctive treatment of diseases caused by impaired immune homeostasis.
