Sambucus nigra L. – przegląd badań naukowych Artykuł przeglądowy


Bartosz J. Sapilak


Bez czarny (Sambucus nigra L.) należy do popularnych farmaceutyków pochodzenia naturalnego. Wykorzystywany jest głównie w terapii infekcji górnych dróg oddechowych, wykazuje jednak znacznie szersze możliwości terapeutyczne. Liczba opracowań dotyczących medycznego wykorzystania rośliny przekracza 150 publikacji opisujących 41 wskazań leczniczych. W opracowaniu przedstawiono najciekawsze z nich wraz z analizą wybranych prac badawczych.
