    Elderberry as a Preventative
    Black elderberry has been used for centuries as a cold and flu preventative. It works wonders to help boost the immune system, strengthening it so it can fight off invading pathogens and viruses.

Sambucol helps you fight sickness at the very first symptoms so you can keep on doing what you have to do. Nobody has time to get sick!

    Where Does Elderberry Come From?
    Elderberry comes from a flowering plant called Sambucus nigra. Elderberry is called many names such as black elderberry, elder, black elder, European elderberry, or simply elderberry. Now you might understand where Sambucol gets its name… from Sambucus! Many people wonder if Sambucol and elderberry are the same thing because Sambucol has become such a household name synonymous with elderberry. But, back to where black elderberry comes from… Sambucus nigra is native to Europe and North America. The flowers and berries have been used for centuries in cooking and winemaking. Traditional medicinal uses for elderberry include treating bronchitis, cough, cold, flu, and relief of related illness symptoms.

    Can Sambucol be Taken Daily?
    Sambucol Cold & Flu Relief is safe enough to be taken every day by the whole family. For children under 4 years of age, please consult with your family doctor. Sambucol Cold & Flu Relief is specially formulated with the addition of zinc in a safe and homeopathic dilution. Therefore, if you’re looking for a daily immune support elderberry, try one of Sambucol’s black elderberry syrups, tablets, or pastilles. The active ingredients in this formula include Bryonia for relief of muscle ache, headache, fever, chills, dry throat, and cough; Gelsemium sempervirens for bronchial irritation, dry cough, and sneezing; Sambucus nigra to help treat nasal congestion, hoarseness, coughing, and fever; Sulphur for nasal congestion and pressure, headache, and burning throat; and Zincum gluconium to help decrease fatigue, nausea, bronchial constriction, and minor sore throat.

    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. The berries have long been used for making preserves, wines, winter cordials and for adding flavour and colour to other wines. 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.

    Can the Sambucol products be used during breastfeeding?
    Due to a lack of clinical data available on the use of Sambucol during breast feeding, it is advisable to avoid taking the product at this time. Consumers are advised to consult their primary care provider before starting to take any new supplement or medication during breastfeeding.

    Should I take Sambucol before or after meals?
    There is no evidence to suggest whether Sambucol should be taken before or after food. Given that Sambucol is extracted from the berries of the black elder, some people may find it preferable to take after food.

    Are there any possible interactions between Sambucol and other substances?
    No itneractions between black elderberry and other medications were identified from the published worldwide literature. As with all medical conditions, the patient should check with a healthcare professional before using any other supplements or medications.

    Can Sambucol products be used in children?
