Why take Elderberry supplements for immunity?
Potent & pure Elderberry delivers powerful antioxidants from super-dark fruit flavonoids believed to account for the therapeutic action of Elderberries.* Revered throughout herbal history, Elderberry’s impressive immune benefits are the subject of numerous medical studies.
Sweetened with throat-soothing honey, New Chapter’s Elderberry Syrup and Elderberry Powder are great options for year-round health or to take at the first sign of an immune challenge. Our Elderberries are sustainably grown in Austria then highly concentrated in a solvent-free process.
What are antioxidants?
Antioxidants are substances found in certain plants that help stop free radicals from causing cell damage in your body. These plant compounds are activated in the digestive system and then released into the bloodstream where they fight free radicals throughout the body. Free radicals are imbalanced molecules that can damage parts of cells such as proteins and DNA by taking electrons via oxidation.
What vitamins should I take for my immune system?
Vitamins C, Vitamin A, and Zinc support immune function in the body.* Your immune system plays a vital role, and certain vitamins are able to give your body an extra layer of support to keep your overall health and wellness in check.
New Chapter’s Activated C Food Complex delivers Vitamin C fermented for better absorption along with complementary Elderberry and Astragalus, that help support your immune system.*
