Elderberry is rich in anthocyanins. Known for their antioxidant activity, anthocyanidins, are responsible for the pigment that gives fruit and berries their luscious rich colours. These plant compounds have been extensively researched and they appear to support the health of blood vessels and reduce the arterial stiffness often associated with ageing. Vitamin C is also an important antioxidant that protects the body from free radicals.
Also known as Barbados Cherry, Acerola is also high in vitamin C and is included in this formula, as is Zinc, another important antioxidant.
Zinc is the second most abundant trace mineral in the body, necessary for the activity of over 300 enzymes that aid metabolism, digestion, nerve function and is critical for the development of immune cells. Zinc deficiency is not uncommon in the UK, especially in people who avoid meat and dairy products.
This formula also contains an immune support blend, containing ginger, fermented turmeric, Bee pollen, and phytonutrients including wild blueberry extract, tart cherry, grape seed extract, cranberry, and other berry extracts.
Great for travellers, as this lozenge can be chewed when required and is easy to pop in your travel bag.
