Fight back against feeling run down this winter with Sambucol - the black elderberry extract supported by clinical research that helps to maintain a healthy immune system.
Black elderberries have been used for centuries as a home remedy to help maintain good health during the cold winter months as they contain a high level of natural antioxidants known as anthocyanins, which help maintain a healthy immune system.
And as the black elderberry has twice the antioxidant capacity of blueberries and significantly more than cranberries,1 Sambucol should be your first line of defence this winter when your immune system needs it the most.
In addition to their antioxidant properties, further health benefits of black elderberries were discovered 20 years ago by a leading virologist. This research revealed that the berries may contain a unique compound which coats viruses and limits their ability to penetrate and infect healthy cells.
Today the benefits of this compound and the antioxidant properties of black elderberries are preserved through a unique manufacturing method to produce a black elderberry extract, which can be found on the high street as Sambucol.
Available in liquid and lozenge formats Sambucol is suitable for all the family and when taken daily can help maintain a healthy immune system all year round. During the winter months when the immune system may be weakened and vulnerable to illness increasing your intake is recommended for additional immune support.
Expert immunologist and registered medical herbalist Dr Serene Foster says: “Black elderberries have been traditionally used to protect against a range of viral ailments because of their natural immune health properties. Recent research has confirmed that these dark purple fruits contain even higher levels of anthocyanins than blueberries and have almost twice the antioxidant capability of cranberries, making them an excellent addition to your winter health routine.
