How does Sambucol work?

Sambucol Black Elderberries provide a natural mode of action that works via 3 simultaneous ways. The key active ingredients in Sambucol are natural Black Elderberries, Vitamin C and Zinc. Studies have shown that Black Elderberries are unusually rich in the phytochemicals known as flavonoids and among all fruits, elderberries are one of the most concentrated sources of anthocyanins, a class of flavonoids that act as powerful antioxidants to maintain the immune system and protect the body’s cells from harm (and they are responsible for the purple pigmentation of Black Elderberries!). Research has shown that the anthocyanins in Black Elderberry can boost the production of cytokines*, the proteins that act as messengers within the immune system, and thereby serve to enhance the body’s immune response.

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, which means it cannot be stored in the body and we must take it from dietary sources. It is an antioxidant, which can help to neutralise free radicals in the body and contributes to the protection if cells against oxidative stress. Vitamin C also contributes to the normal function of the immune system, natural energy-yielding metabolism and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

Zinc is a mineral that’s important to the body in many ways including contributing to the maintenance of the normal function of the immune system. It also contributes to the protection of cells in the body from oxidative stress.

What is Black Elderberry?
Elderberry refers to several varieties of the Sambucus tree, which has clusters of white flowers and black or blue-black berries that are packed with phytonutrients. The most common variety is Sambucus nigra, also known as European elderberry or Black Elderberry.

Details of the uses of Elderberry have been recorded since ancient times, as far back as the writings from the Greek Physician Hippocrates (460-370 BC), known as ‘The father of Medicine’, who even referred to elderberry as “nature’s medicine chest.” The berries have long been used for making preserves, wines, winter cordials and for adding flavour and colour to other wines. These uses are based on the Elderberry’s antioxidant properties. More recently, Elderberry has been used as dietary supplements and used in natural health products containing extracts of the berries.
