AHPA’s 40 Herbs We Love – No.1: Elderberry (with love from Alkemist Labs)

February 3, 2022

In honor of AHPA's 40th anniversary in 2022, we will be showcasing 40 of our favorite herbs throughout the year with support from members who love these herbs, too!

Follow along all year for AHPA's 40 Herbs We Love, celebrating a selection of the many beloved herbs at the heart of our robust industry and vibrant community.

No. 1: Elderberry (Sambucus nigra)

When it comes to immunity-supporting herbal ingredients, elderberry tops the list as on-trend and in-demand.

Consumer demand for these nutrient-packed berries to boost immunity has soared during the pandemic...but with high demand comes risk of adulteration.

Confirm the identity and quality of elderberry and other high-demand ingredients with thorough testing by Alkemist Labs, the natural product industry's leading botanical lab.

Stay tuned for more big things from elderberry and Alkemist Labs in 2022, when Alkemist Labs celebrates 25 years of ensuring botanical quality!
