Dangers and Side Effects
Everyone has different opinions on whether the elderberry is helpful or not, but most doctors believe in having smalls doses just to be on the safe side. These berries can be disadvantageous, because if they’re consumed unripe or uncooked, they may cause diarrhea, vomiting, and nausea.

Before taking the fruit, keep in mind that;

– Getting a rash or having breathing problems after having these berries means that you may be allergic to it.
