COVID-19: Is There Evidence for the Use of Herbal Medicines as Adjuvant Symptomatic Therapy?
Frontiers in Pharmacology, 2020
- This review paper also evaluated the benefits of elderberry and other herbal medicines as treatment for COVID-19.
- This paper mentions dried flower but doesn’t get into a lot of specifics on its use.
- Mentions high level of supportive evidence of use of elderberry against cold and flu (see also clinical trials summary document).
· Safety margins are superior to reference drugs and strong enough evidence to merit clinical use as an adjuvant in treatment of early / mild COVID-19.
