Hallo Doug,
Sambucus is e.g. containing much Appleacid, Grapeacid and Anthocyane.
Anthocyane are very strong antioxidants  with many, many positive effects...
Probably this is the reason we strongly recommend Sambucus against a 
cold, an infection and even against  infection-pain and others effects.
Only "wild"! Vaccinum berries have a much higher content. Vaccinum CV 
have almost none content.
We consider e.g. Samdal, Samyl, Sambu and Haschberg (bad 
umbel-ripening-time) for a very high Anthocyane content.
According to my information pure S. canadensis has always a smaller 
Anthocyane content.
