Black elderberry and immunity: what's the link?

Saturday, July 4, 2020
Your immune system plays a vital role in your health and wellbeing. It is your body’s defence system, made up of specialised organs, cells and tissues that all work together to destroy foreign invaders which can all  trigger an immune response in your body.

There are also lifestyle factors that can increase your susceptibility to ills and chills, including:

  • Feeling tired or stressed both emotionally or physically
  • An unhealthy diet or nutrient deficiencies
  • Living or working in crowded conditions, or having children in these conditions such as day care or school
  • Intensive physical activity.

Black elderberry and immune system support

Black elderberry (sambuccus nigra) has been used in traditional herbal practice for centuries and has a unique mechanism of action to support your immune system. Black elderberries are also rich in unique compounds called flavonoids, which are naturally occurring antioxidants. Flavonoids support your immune system to fight foreign invaders and help to neutralise the harmful effects of free radicals.
