An extract is created by using a solvent to attract and pull out the health-promoting phytochemicals in an herb or berry. The most common natural solvents include water, alcohol, glycerin and vinegar. The most potent extracts begin with two ingredients, the whole, fresh herb or berry and the solvent used to create the extract. Which solvent you use depends on the polarity of the phytochemical you are wanting to extract. The most valuable phytochemicals in elderberry are the antioxidant rich anthocyanins and because they are water soluble, water is the best solvent to use when creating an elderberry extract.
