NOW ELDERBERRY & ZINC

Factors for the maintenance of good health. Helps in tissue formation & wound healing. Helps maintain immune function. This plant is traditionally used as a medicinal plant by many native peoples and herbalists alike. Stembark, leaves, flowers, fruits, and root extracts are used to treat bronchitis, cough, upper respiratory cold infections, fever. In a placebo-controlled, double-blind study, black elderberry (Sambucus nigra) was shown to be effective for treating Influenza B.

People using the elderberry extract recovered much faster than those only on a placebo. The study was published in the Journal of Alternative Complementary Medicine. Zinc is a proven and trusted supplement for supporting a healthy immune system. However, some evidence suggests that zinc intakes among older adults might be marginal. When the investigators considered intakes from both food and dietary supplements, they found that 20%–25% of older adults still had inadequate zinc intakes. As there are many different areas of the immune system that  require support, this formula combines some of the most-researched-proven ingredients to support immunity and fight the common cold and flu. Vitamins, Minerals and herbals work synergistically to help treat the symptoms and support the immune system to fight off bacterial infection, and viruses to lessen the length and severity of colds and flu.
