Elderberry Juice Benefits?

I'd like to juice around a couple pounds of elderberries I've found. The most common practice I've read of doing so is boiling the berries removed from the stem with some water for around ten minutes, then straining the juice. I was told Elderberries are perfectly edible, just like blueberries, strawberries or any other, so there is no need to boil them. But I'm doing it either way, what are the benefits of Elderberry Juice, is it good for your health?

Elderberries have been a folk remedy for centuries in North America, Europe, Western Asia, and North Africa, hence the medicinal benefits of elderberries are being investigated and rediscovered. Elderberry is used for its antioxidant activity, to lower cholesterol, to improve vision, to boost the immune system, to improve heart health and for coughs, colds, flu, bacterial and viral infections and tonsilitis. Bioflavonoids and other proteins in the juice destroy the ability of cold and flu viruses to infect a cell. People with the flu who took elderberry juice reported less severe symptoms and felt better much faster than those who did not.
