What are the traditional uses of elderberry?
Details of the uses of elderberry have been recorded since ancient times, as far back as the writings of Hippocrates, Dioscorides and Pliny the Elder.

More recently, elderberry has been used as dietary supplements and used in natural health products containing extracts of the berries.

How does Sambucol work?
Studies have shown that elderberries are unusually rich in the phytochemicals known as flavonoids and among all fruits, elderberries are the most concentrated source of anthocyanins, a class of flavonoids that act as powerful antioxidants to boost the immune system and protect the body's cells from harm. These anthocyanins are found in the purple pigment 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. Sambucol products contain extracts of black elderberry. Therefore, Sambucol is a rich souce of anthocyanins which has been shown to help stimulate the body's immune system.

What clinical evidence is available to support Sambucol?
Sambucus nigra or the black elderberry is a plant native to Europe, Northern Africa and parts of Asia. The flowers and berries have a long history of use in traditional European medicine as well as the berries being used to make wines and cordials. The black elderberry, due to the dark pigmentation of its fruit, contains high concentrations of the flavonoid group of antioxidants called anthocyanins. It is these natural antioxidants that give the elderberry its purple pigment. This means that the fruit of the black elderberry have powerful antioxidant capabilities. Studies looking at the antioxidant activity of many types of fruits, including the black elderberry have shown that the total antioxidative capacity of the elderberry was higher than that of the blackcurrant, gooseberry, cranberry, blueberry and redcurrant Due to the amount of stress that modern society places on our bodies, it may be beneficial to take an antioxidant supplement to help boost the Immune System, particularly at times such as when suffering from a cold or the flu virus.

Flavonoids are powerful, natural antioxidants that are thought to work to protect the body's cells from the potential damage caused by free radicals. Certain flavonoids - anthocyanins - are found primarily in the pigments of dark blue and deep purple fruits such as the black elderberry. It is these that have a remarkable ability to stimulate the body's immune system. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, the highest concentration of anthocyanins are found in black elderberries - nearly double the amount found in any other fruit. The presence of these anthocyanins gives black elderberries twice the natural antioxidant capacity of blueberries and significantly more than cranberries. Sambucol's unique manufacturing process harnesses the natural power of these anthocyanins providing a health supplement suitable for the whole family.

This tablet tastes very sour. It upsets my stomach. Also tablets became very soft to the touch after couple of months of opening the bottle. I am throwing it away. What a waste of money. It is better to take this product in syrup form.

Lucky Vitamin offers the REAL DEAL, Sambucol. Unlike the copycat that ends with "cus", this one gets the job done at a very reasonable price. One or two a day for preventive purposes. If you are already suffering the misery of a cold, melt 3 in a row in your mouth about 3 times the first day. The next day you should be doing MUCH BETTER. Lucky Vitamine delivered as promissed.
