Health Benefits at a Glance:
This formula combines standardized black elderberry extract, which has been shown in clinical and preclinical research to support immune health, with the tried-and-true immune support benefits of vitamin C.
Why it Works:
This formula gives your immune system intense nutritional support for when you need it most, so you stay at your best. Unlike our 5-Day Elderberry Immune formula, Black Elderberry + Vitamin C is designed to be taken every day, all year long.
The Science Behind the Product:
Standardized elderberry extract
Elderberry extract has a reputation for its ability to promote a healthy immune response—a reputation that research now seems to confirm. A meta-analysis of four separate studies indicates that supplementation with a standardized elderberry extract lessened duration and response to an immune challenge—with results noticed in as little as two days in one study.1,2,3
Each two-capsule serving of Black Elderberry + Vitamin C has 720 mg of elderberry extract (Sambucus nigra) standardized to anthocyanins to provide daily support for healthy immune response and respiratory health.
200 mg of vitamin C
Another meta-analysis of research into vitamin C revealed that taking vitamin C helped lessen duration and response to immune challenges.4 Vitamin C also provides potent antioxidant protection. Each two-capsule serving of Black Elderberry + Vitamin C delivers 200 mg of vitamin C.
