Sambucol has been developed by scientists and is recommended by experts

Sambucol was developed by a world renowned scientist who recognised the potential of the flavonoids present in the Black Elderberry. It is produced from whole black elderberries and each 120ml bottle contains 100s of natural black elderberries. The unique preparation method preserves and maximises the naturally occurring health benefits of the black elderberries to help support the immune system.

A Unique Formulation

The Black Elderberries that give Sambucol® its unique properties have been carefully sourced to ensure that they are of the highest quality. The unique formulation and extraction process also preserves and maximises this naturally occurring health benefit.

Scientifically Developed

Elderberries have been used for centuries as a natural remedy. The work of a leading scientist brought the health-giving properties of the black elderberry to the modern pharmacy and health food store.

Sambucol® is the product of over 20 years of research, making it the most extensively researched elderberry product in the world.
The activity of the flavonoids – naturally occurring antioxidants - are preserved through a unique manufacturing process.
This research has since been validated and endorsed by a series of scientific trials taking place over five years, which has led to world-wide acclaim for the product.
Sambucol® was first developed in 1991 and has since gone on to become a supplement that is relied on and trusted by loyal users the world over as a great way to get daily immune system support.

 

The Immune System

The immune system is designed to defend the body and fight infections. Some people’s immune systems function better due to diet, lifestyle choices or genetics, and some people will be more susceptible to infections than others. Poor dietary choices such as a diet low in fresh fruit and vegetables (rich sources of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants), and high in sugar and processed foods, can negatively impact the immune system. A lack of exercise and a stressful lifestyle can also play a role in a lowered immune system.

Keeping your immune system strong is important throughout the year. Nobody likes to feel under the weather.

How can Sambucol help?

All year round support

Sambucol can be taken all year round to support your immune system. Increased dose is recommended during winter months. See directions for details.

At the first sign

Sambucol gives your immune system additional support when you start feeling under the weather.

When travelling

Aeroplanes, public transport, air-conditioned buildings and busy public areas always put your immune system through its paces. Our tip is to take our Immuno Forte Capsules or Immuno Forte Effervescent Tablets with you in your luggage.

During winter

Winter weather puts additional strain on our immune systems. Warm indoors, cold outdoors, dry air and people under the weather, all this requires your immune system to fight stronger. That's why we recommend increasing the dosage of Sambucol to winter dose. See dosage instructions for details.

Before an important event like a wedding

Take Sambucol to give your immune system additional support before an important occasion like a wedding or a holiday.

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. These uses are based on the elderberries antioxidant properties. Through these actions elderberry can help to support the immune system.

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 maintain 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 source of anthocyanins which have been shown to help maintain the body’s immune system.

What 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 as well as the berries being used to make wines and cordials. (1) 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 maintain the Immune System.

Dietary supplements containing extracts from the black elderberry have long been used across the world. Supplements are available in many forms including expressed juice, teas, syrup and lozenges.

Does elderberry cause a cytokine storm to be produced?
Cytokines are produced by the immune system when it is under attack from viruses and pathogens. Cytokines signal immune cells to travel to the site of attack or infection. This is a normal body process that is kept under control by a feedback loop.

Sometimes this process can become uncontrolled and too many immune cells are stimulated in a single place. This is often referred to as a cytokine storm.

Cytokine storms can cause significant tissue and organ damage.

There is no evidence in the literature to indicate that elderberry extract causes cytokine storms. We recommend that Sambucol products, which contain elderberry extract be used only for the indications on the product labelling.

Can Sambucol be used as part of the recommended ‘5 a day’ portions of fruit and vegetables?
Information available from the Food Standards Agency and current Government guidelines on healthy eating, indicate that Sambucol products cannot count as part of the recommended ‘5 a day’ portions of fruit and vegetables. This is based on the fact that only 100% fruit juices are allowed to be classified as a ‘portion of fruit’ and in order to obtain 100% fruit juice from Sambucol, 150ml of the product would need to be consumed. This amount is not the amount currently recommended on Sambucol packaging (see individual packs). The Sambucol range are classed as food supplements and are not intended to replace fruit and vegetables in a diet.
