Health Benefits at a Glance:
Vitamin C is known as an essential component for immune health, supporting the production of white blood cells to keep common seasonal bugs in check. Black elderberry coordinates an efficient immune response by helping promote the production of vital immune molecules while deterring unwanted bodily irritations.
Why it Works:
Vitamin C is a powerful water-soluble nutrient with antioxidant and immunity-enhancing properties that has been shown to strengthen and build resiliency in the body. It is an essential component in the immune response, supporting the production of white blood cells to keep common seasonal bugs in check.
Elderberry is a botanical long celebrated for its immune-supportive effects and its ability to help promote a healthy microbial balance in the body. Black elderberry is a dark purple berry with a rich history of use in traditional herbalism to support immune defenses.
This black elderberry of the Haschberg variety is abundantly rich in anthocyanin flavonoids. This berry is known for its ability to help bolster immune defenses against invaders and shorten the duration of common health disruptions. It is able to help coordinate an efficient immune response by promoting the production of vital immune signaling molecules while deterring unwanted bodily irritations.
The Science Behind the Product:
Elderberry has been found to both promote cellular defenses against foreign invaders and help impede their replication within the cell. These effects are attributed to elderberry anthocyanins, which can block the spike proteins on the invader’s membranes that are needed to gain entry into host cells. These properties of elderberry explain why it has been found to support upper respiratory tract health and function in the face of these health challenges. Elderberry may also promote an efficient immune response to seasonal invaders by coordinating the release of cytokines, small proteins secreted by immune cells that are a vital part of the immune response to harmful bugs. Furthermore, it helps support a balanced inflammatory response to seasonal invaders, promoting productive immune function while dampening excessive, unproductive irritations.
The lungs are highly susceptible to invaders along with the resulting elevation in free radicals. Vitamin C supports lung cell defenses to optimize respiratory health. Vitamin E also safeguards your delicate cell membranes to reduce the negative impact caused by seasonal challenges. Together, vitamin C, elderberry, and vitamin E support cellular antioxidant potential to diminish the effects of free radical caused by invaders.
