Elderberry and Sambucol:

Sambucol, made by Israeli company Razai Bar, is one of the world's most popular immune system medicines. And with good reason: it is simply elderberry syrup. And research has shown elderberry to be one of nature's most powerful virus fighters. It can quickly reduce the severity and duration of the flu, knock out the virus that causes warts, stop colds, bacterial infections and tonsilitis, and boost immune system response. It also contains anti-oxidants that can improve vision, heart health and lower cholesterol. What's not to like?

Sambucol is a great product but it actually is a syrup. It contains elderberry extract, but also has glucose syrup, honey and flavorings. Our elderberry is just that: elderberry extract, about three times as potent as Sambucol and without the added sugars, carbs and calories.

Greenbush Elderberry Extract is pure, alcohol-free, Bio-Chelated*, holistically balanced and full medicinal potency: 1:1 strength (1ml=1000mg).

Elderberry Facts and Research

Benefits of Elderberry*: Immune system boost, anitoxidant activity, anthocyanins, cough, cold, flu, bacterial infections, viral infections, tonsilitis, HIV, lower cholesterol, improved vision, heart health. *From "The Green Pharmacy" by Dr. James Duke.

Elderberry reseach and Medical Uses:

Immune Boost: In Karlsruhe, Germany, at the Bundesforschungsanstalt research center for food, scientists conduct studies on dietary agents containing nutrients believed to be beneficial to health. The research on Elderberry is led by the center's director, Dr. Gerhard Rechkemmer. Rechkemmer's investigations show that elderberry anthocyanins enhance immune function by boosting the production of cytokines. These unique proteins act as messengers in the immune system to help regulate immune response, thus helping to defend the body against disease. Dr. Rechkemmer says that he believes the further research on elderberry will reveal additional health benefits.

Antioxidant activity: In further research led by Dr. Gerhard Rechkemmer, anthocyanins found in elderberries possess appreciably more antioxidant capacity than either vitamin E or vitamin C.

Studies at Austria's University of Graz found that elderberry extract reduces oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. Oxidation of LDL cholesterol is implicated in atherogenesis, thus contributing to cardiovascular disease.

Sambucol Study: Sambucol® was shown to reduce hemagglutination and inhibited replication of human influenza virus type A, type B and animal strains from swine and turkeys in cell cultures. A double-blind placebo-controlled clinical study was conducted during an outbreak of influenza B Panama. A significant improvement of the symptoms, including fever, was seen in 93.3% of the cases in the Sambucol® treated group within 2 days. A complete cure was achieved within 2 to 3 days in nearly 90% of the Sambucol® treated group and within at least 6 days in the placebo group. "Inhibition of Several Strains of Influenza Virus in Vitro and Reduction of Symptoms by an Elderberry Extract (Sambucus nigra L) during an Outbreak of Influenza B Panama", Z. Zakay-Rones et al. J. Alt Compl Med 1995;1:361-369.

Sambucol Study 2: In a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled study conducted in Norway, Sambucol® was shown to significantly reduce the duration of the flu by approximately four days. The use of rescue medication (pain relievers, etc.) was significantly less in the group receiving Sambucol® than in the placebo group. "Randomized study on the efficacy and safety of an oral elderberry extract in the treatment of influenza A and B virus infections" Thom Erling & Therje Wollan, J. Int. Med. Res., 2004;32(2):132-140.

Greenbush Bio-Chelated Extracts: Alcohol-free, full medicinal potency (1ml = 1000mg), 2 to 3 times the strength of the average herbal extract.

Until Bio-Chelation there was simply no good way to make a potent alcohol-free extract. Greenbush alcohol free extracts begin with organic alcohol regardless of whether the final product contains alcohol or not. After finishing the first step in the plant extraction, an additional step is performed to remove the alcohol. This is done by utilizing a proprietary cold extraction process called Bio-Chelation®. Bio-Chelation® describes the cold process vacuum distillation method, which removes all the alcohol initially used to obtain the good herbal extract.

Holistically Balanced Herbal Extracts: It is important to note that a cold extraction process, as opposed to a heat extraction process, helps maintain the full spectrum, or Holistic BalanceTM of the plant's constituents in the final product. The end-result is an alcohol-free extract containing the essential properties of the complete herb in a base of vegetable glycerin and water. (Vegetable glycerin is used because it can help to bind certain plant constituents, is natural to the body, easily absorbed, tastes sweet without affecting blood sugar levels, and acts as a good solvent and carrier for the plant constituents).
