ELDERBERRY PLUS

Fresh Ground
90 Vegetarian Capsules

INDICATIONS:

Elderberry Plus is a unique formula that combines both Elderberry and Elderflower with Umckaloabo Root. It helps strengthen the immune system and provides immediate and effective immune support. Elderberry Plus can be used as a preventative to increase resistance to illness and help rebuild a strong immune response, or it can be taken when already ill to reduce symptoms and shorten the duration of the illness.

Elderberry is one of the most effective herbs to use for flu. Studies report the herb shortens the duration of flu symptoms, such as fever, fatigue, headache, sore throat, cough and body aches. Elderberry has proven to be effective against numerous strains of influenza. The herb’s constituents neutralize the activity of the hemagglutinin spikes found on the surface of several viruses, causing the viruses to deactivate so they are unable to infect cells. Elderberry can be used during an active flu (optimally combined with Oregano Oil or Echinacea Goldenseal), or used as a preventative to avoid getting sick during the flu season.

Elderberry is a very concentrated source of anthocyanins, purple pigments that serve as powerful antioxidants. These anthocyanins enhance immune function and protect the body against disease by boosting the production of cytokines (proteins that regulate immune response), including tumor necrosis factor-alpha and interleukins. Elderberry also contains the flavonoids quercetin and rutin, and is high in Vitamins A and C.

Umckaloabo is indicated for reducing the symptoms and shortening the duration of upper respiratory ailments, such as colds, bronchitis, sinusitis, coughs, sore throat, congestion, muscle aches, headaches, and fever. It is a safe and effective homeopathic formula that can be used by both adults and children as an alternative to over the counter cold and sinus medications. Umckaloabo is made from an extract of the Pelargonium sidoides root. P. sidoides was first cultivated in south Africa where it has a long history of use in treating coughs, upper respiratory infections and throat infections.

Umckaloabo can provide fast relief from the uncomfortable symptoms of viral illnesses such as colds and most bronchial infections. A study published in 2007 tested P. sidoides effects on 207 patients aged 18-55 years who presented common cold symptoms. The patients in the P. sidoides treatment group had a significant reduction in symptoms such as nasal drainage, sore throat, nasal congestion, sneezing, scratchy throat, hoarseness, cough, headache, muscle aches and fever. Clinical trials in adults and children diagnosed with acute bronchitis show that treatment with P. sidoides reduces the severity of symptoms, such as coughing, expectoration, chest pain, shortness of breath and wheezing, and shortens the duration of sick leave from work or school by 2 days. In 2008 a meta-analysis of 4 randomized clinical trials showed P. sidoides to be superior in efficacy compared with placebo in the treatment of acute bronchitis. Researchers concluded that P. sidoides offers an effective alternative to antibiotics.

Extracts of the P. sidoides root are antibacterial and immunomodulating. Studies have identified gallic acid and its methyl ester to be the prominent immunomodulatory constituents of P. sidoides, with both compounds demonstrating significan macrophage (white blood cell) activity. Numerous other studies document P. sidoides’ antibacterial activity and confirm the roots’ efficacy in treating the common cold, sore throat and bronchitis. Coumarins, phenolics and unsaturated fatty acids, especially linoleic acid, from P. sidoides demonstrate direct antibacterial activity and significant immune stimulation of the host.

A 2007 study published in Phytomedicine examined the impact of P. sidoides on the activity of human peripheral blood phagocytes and found several important components contributing to the roots’ biological activity. The study reported P. sidoides increased phagocytosis (a major mechanism used by the immune system to remove pathogens from the body), increased oxidative bursts (the rapid release of reactive oxygen species from immune cells to destroy foreign bacteria), and increased intracellular killing of test organisms.
