    The most recent systematic review from the Cochrane Collaboration demonstrated that Tamiflu only reduced the duration of the flu by half a day on average. While elderberry has been shown to reduce the duration of the flu by four days in a recent meta-analysis.

    Now that is just assessing the efficacy, one should also take into consideration that elderberry has a better safety profile than Tamiflu.
