Effective as Immune Booster

Sambucol black elderberry is nature’s richest source of the flavonoids known as anthocyanins. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, the highest concentration of anthocyanins are found primarily in the pigments of dark blue and deep purple fruits such as the black elderberry.

The presence of these anthocyanins gives black elderberries twice the natural antioxidant capacity of blueberries and significantly more than cranberries. All flavonoids are powerful natural antioxidants that work to protect the body’s cells against the damaging effect of free radicals. But the flavonoids known as anthocyanins are thought to stimulate the body’s immune system as well, by increasing the production of cytokines, the chemical messengers within our immune system that help to activate the immune response. Similar results in recent clinical studies confirm this finding, suggesting that black elderberry can trigger a near 45-fold increase in immune response. Sambucol with its proprietary manufacturing process, preserves the natural potency of these unique flavonoids to help keep you healthy, especially when winter starts wearing you down.

Our tip is to chew 1 Sambucol pastille every 2 hours. Moisten your nostrils with an over-the-counter saltwater nasal spray. Because enclosed areas like a cockpit have notoriously low humidity, which dries the protective mucus membranes in your nose. Stay well-hydrated and keep our Sambucol capsules or liquid with you in your luggage.
