About the ingredients
Elderberry is one of the most recognized and well-researched berries for its immune health properties, specifically its antiviral benefits against some influenza virus strains. Human clinical studies have shown that elderberry extract supplementation relieves influenza symptoms several days sooner than placebo groups. BerryImmune™ includes a standardized elderberry extract to ensure consistently high levels of the elderberry anthocyanins.
The widely-studied anti-adherence quality of cranberry helps strengthen the body against certain bacterial pathogens. Most of the attention centers around E. coli strains that contribute to urinary tract infections, but some research indicates cranberry can exhibit similar effects against other types of bacteria that may inhabit the mouth and stomach.
Beta-glucan is a natural polysaccharide found in a variety of substances, including certain mushrooms. However, more clinical research has been conducted on a particular beta-glucan derived from a proprietary strain of yeast known as 1,3/1,6 polysaccharide. This particular beta-glucan serves as an immune response modulator without over-stimulating the immune system. In clinical studies, beta-glucan supplementation reduced the duration and severity of cold symptoms, as well as decreased the incidence of upper respiratory tract infections and fatigue. BerryImmune includes the efficacious dosage used in these immune clinical studies.
To target the immune system from the area of digestive health, inulin fiber was included to supplement other food sources of this prebiotic. Inulin keeps the healthy bacteria of the gut nourished and functioning properly so they can out-compete any foreign invaders in the gut.
The BerryImmune formula is rounded out by adding the recommended daily value of zinc and a high level of Vitamin C, which are essential vitamins and minerals needed for a properly functioning immune system.
The ingredients in this formulation have been shown to:
Target multiple aspects of immune health.
Include higher levels of elderberry anthocyanins than in other popular immune formulas.
Serve as a clinically-validated immune system modulator and help against occasional fatigue.
Possess considerable antioxidant activity.
Strengthen the body's natural defenses.
Help nourish and maintain healthy intestinal flora.
Traditional wisdom and now modern research recognize the health benefits of dark berry antioxidants.
Among fruits, dark berries contain high levels of diverse phytonutrients known as polyphenols. Polyphenols are a large family of natural phytonutrients widely distributed in plant foods. They are characterized by the presence of more than one phenol unit per molecule. Flavonoids (or "bioflavonoids") make up an important subcategory of polyphenols that exhibit potent antioxidant activity. Many health promoting effects are attributed to flavonoids. Anthocyanins, with their incredible antioxidant and health-promoting potential, are one of the most widely-studied flavonoid categories. Anthocyanins are the water-soluble pigments responsible for the dark red-purple color found in fruits, vegetables, and flowers. The darker the berry, the more anthocyanins that are present.
Berries for Life only concentrates on dark berries because dark berries concentrate the antioxidants.
Dark Berries are Better Berries
All berry phytonutrients are beneficial. But they are not all equal. At Berries for Life, they are here for only one reason, and that is to concentrate on the best of the best nutrients.
A significant number of studies have shown that dark berry antioxidants (such as anthocyanins) are beneficial for cardiovascular health, reducing age-associated oxidative stress, improving neuronal and cognitive brain function as well as ocular health, and protecting genomic integrity. In addition, dark berry antioxidants have been shown to enhance the immune system and help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
