If you’re considering taking elderberry while breastfeeding, it’s generally advised to exercise caution and seek alternative options.
Elderberry, with its vibrant purple hue and immune-boosting reputation, might seem like a tempting choice. However, most medical professionals advise against its use while breastfeeding. Why? Well, there's a lack of scientific evidence1 on the safety and effectiveness of elderberry specifically for those who are nursing.
While elderberry is generally considered safe for adults, potential side effects and risks haven’t been thoroughly studied in the context of breastfeeding.
So it's always wise to consult with your healthcare provider before adding elderberry to your regimen while breastfeeding.
