elderberry: taking your immune system seriously
Your immune system is your own internal bodyguard. When one’s immune system is healthy and strong, you will find despite daily exposure to bacteria, polluted environments, pet dander, and in some cases, viruses, you remain protected and in favorable overall health.
A compromised immune system cannot adequately defend the body from free radicals, germs, bacteria & viruses. And as the COVID-19 pandemic has shown us all, it’s time we begin to take our immune systems seriously!
While maintaining a healthy lifestyle through regular exercise, a balanced diet high in fruits and vegetables, reduced stress, and sufficient sleep are golden rules for a strong immune system, some studies suggest that herbal extracts may play a key role in supporting healthy immunity.
elderberries: a promising plant extract
Elderberries, also known as Sambucus, are harvested from the elder shrub. Elderberries have been a homeopathic staple for centuries to support a strong immune system. The elderberry is a shining star amongst other medicinal plants, as it is rich in antioxidants, Vitamin C and other phytonutrients.
Vitamin C, found abundantly in the elderberry extract, is not naturally produced in the body. Numerous studies have proven the benefits of Vitamin C for immune health, faster recovery from illness, and greater overall energy.
Unless you live high in the Himalayas, you’ll find yourself exposed to free radicals each and every day. Elderberries contain a large amount of free-radical fighting antioxidants, which, as result, promote a resilient immune system.
And finally, we are phytonutrient fanatics. Produced majoritively by pigmented fruits and veggies, phytonutrients create an “invisible armor” for the immune system, minimizing the chance for outside threats to cause harm.
