What is Sambucol? – Natural Cold + Flu Fighter
Sambucol Black Elderberry Cold & Flu is clinically proven to help cut the duration of flu symptoms by half. It reduces the severity of flu symptoms including: congestion, cough, aches and pain, fever, and sore throat.
Sambucol is made from black elderberries which have twice the natural antioxidant capacity of blueberries and more than 50% the overall antioxidant capability of cranberries.
Antioxidants support the immune system by helping neutralise the harmful effect of free radicals. Sambucol is produced from whole black elderberries and has the equivalent of up to 1000 black elderberries in every 120ml bottle.
Sambucol Black Elderberry Cold & Flu has a unique formulation and extraction process which preserves and maximises the naturally occurring health benefits of the berry.
Sambucol Black Elderberry Cold & Flu is available as a pleasant tasting liquid or as convenient capsules.
Scientific studies have demonstrated Sambucol’s efficacy in helping to relieve flu symptoms and shorten the duration of influenza.
In a clinical trial, flu patients given Sambucol recovered on average 4 days earlier, in 3.1 days compared to 7.1 days for those given placebo, when taken within 48 hours after onset of symptoms¹.
Another clinical trial reported that almost 90% of flu patients receiving Sambucol showed a significant improvement in Influenza B symptoms, including fever, and were symptom free within two to three days, as compared to at least six days with placebo².
