Antiviral due to its properties. Namely,anthocyanins.
Anthocyanins, the largest water-soluble pigments in the plant kingdom, are a type of flavonoid, a phytonutrient found exclusively in plants. Plants with these colorful pigments have long been valued in herbal medicine for their numerous health benefits. For example, cranberries have been used for treating urinary tract infections, elderberries for combatting colds and flu. Modern science is affirming that anthocyanins are a medicine chest in a vibrant package—foods and herbs with these particular hues have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and anti-cancer properties. Research indicates that purple and red fruits, vegetables, and herbs—as well as supplements of concentrated anthocyanins—may help to protect against cancer, cognitive decline, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.
How Anthocyanins Protect Health

Anthocyanins have a wide range of biological activities including: redox/antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, anti-carcinogenic, fostering eye health, neuroprotective, prevention of LDL oxidation, improvement of capillary stability, supporting collagen, and increasing intercellular levels of vitamin C.1
