A Powerful Immunity blend with Antiviral Support

It's no coincidence that elderberry is the main ingredient of our powerhouse immunity blend, Elderberry Vitality +. We wanted to create an immune-supporting formula for busy, hardworking people to take on the go. And we did just that.

Your immune system is always on the clock. That’s why, if you’re looking for a little extra support, you aim for this: a supplement regimen that works as hard as you do—that you actually want to take. That’s why we made Elderberry Vitality +: a capsule made with clinically studied elderberry, cat's claw, licorice root, lemon balm, vitamin C (as ester C), zinc, and rosehips—to back up your body’s natural defenses.

And the best part? We've taken all of these antiviral supporting herbs and put them into 2 capsules for you, that you take just once per day. Does it really get more convenient than that?

Evidence-based health benefits of elderberries

We take a look at the evidence behind some of the main reported health benefits of elderberries:

Fighting colds and flu

There is some evidence to support the claim that elderberry can help treat colds and flu, though the available studies are small, they are still impactful.

A systematic review from 2010 concluded that elderberries might have antioxidant and antiviral effects.

In one study, 60 people with flu-like symptoms took 15 milliliters (ml) of elderberry syrup four times a day. Their symptoms improved 4 days before the people who took a placebo.

In another study, 32 people with flu-like symptoms took lozenges containing 175 milligrams (mg) of elderberry extract four times a day for 2 days. After 24 hours, they reported an improvement in symptoms, such as fever, headache, muscle aches, and nasal congestion.

A double-blind, randomized control trial looked at whether elderberry extract could prevent people from experiencing cold-like symptoms after traveling on an airplane. People took lozenges containing 300 mg of elderberry extract and 150 mg of rice flour twice a day for 10 days before traveling.

Researchers found that the capsules did not prevent the symptoms, but people who took elderberry had less severe symptoms that lasted for a shorter time.
