A natural way to boost immunity; elderberry works by flooding the body with antioxidants and boosting your bodies own natural immune defense. Research suggests elderberry may increase the production of cytokines, natural chemicals that tell the immune system to rev up and fight off infection. Elderberries are also chockfull of antioxidants such as vitamin A and vitamin C along with various flavonoids - these are botanical compounds that protect cells from oxidative damage.
Studies have proven that elderberry exerts its antiviral activity through a number of mechanisms of action, including: suppressing the entry of viruses into a cell, modulating post infection phases, and preventing viral transmission to other cells. Elderberry is also a immunomodulant, meaning it helps the system gauge immune response to pathogens appropriately- also referred to as an amphoteric. It will step in when needed and fall back when not. Whoa!
