The whole world is fighting against Covid-19 right now as the virus continues to pose a significant challenge to our health and well-being. So safeguarding our body’s own natural immunity has never been more important, hence we have been taking Sambucol to help us to build up our antioxidant levels to give us the extra protection!
If you have not taken Sambucol before, you might not know how it works? Sambucol Black Elderberry is rich in antioxidants known as anthocyanins. Based on black elderberries, they are known for their immune health benefits, and over 20 years ago, a leading virologist discovered that these berries also had significant anti-viral properties, and thus developed Sambucol.
Sambucol has a unique formulation and extraction process which preserves and maximises the naturally occurring health benefits of the berry. These black elderberries provide a distinctive mode of action called AntiVirin®, which helps protect healthy cells, inactivate infectious viruses and boosts immunity.
Sambucol also contains Vitamin C, a well-known principle antioxidant, important for your immune system, which can help prevent or reverse cellular damage caused by free radicals – unstable molecules that can damage cells. Sambucol Immuno Forte range and Sambucol Extra Defence also have added Zinc. A deficiency in this nutrient has been shown to significantly affect the immune system’s ability to function properly, resulting in an increased risk of infection, including pneumonia.
Whenever we feel that we are coming down with an illness, we will quickly have a few doses to keep our immune system up. For us, it really works! Through this Covid-19, we have bought over 20 bottles and have had them since March when things started in the UK.
Sambucol Immuno Forte is available in four formats including liquid, capsule, effervescent and pastille formats with specific formulations for adults and children.
For the Sambucol® Kids with Vitamin C, it comes in a 120ml bottle containing Black Elderberries and Vitamin C. It is suitable for one-year-olds and above and legally safe for children since the ban on Echinacea in children under 12. It comes with a small translucent plastic cup. My children love them. The solution sometimes can come across quite thick and sweet, but a quick sip of water will help to flush the solution away.
Next, we have the Sambucol Immuno Forte, this helps support your immune system through the year and needless to say, it is a must to have at home. These vitamins are a great way to help support their immune system! I would definitely recommend them!
Sambucol is available from Boots, Holland & Barrett, Tesco, Waitrose, Lloyds Pharmacy, Amazon.co.uk, Superdrug, Ocado.com, Chemistdirect.co.uk and independent health stores and other pharmacies. Please visit www.sambucol.co.uk for more information.
