Free radicals are oxygen molecules that possess incompatible pairs of electrons. The lack of compatible electrons cause free radicals to travel around the body creating mayhem as they try and steal electrons from other molecules. Antioxidants are molecules stable enough to give an electron to a free radical and thus neutralise it.
An overabundance of free radicals within the body damages cells, causing them to age and degenerate (otherwise known as oxidative stress). Antioxidants slow down the rate of oxidative stress and stabilise free radical molecules that could otherwise cause serious health implications.
ElderMax™ contains Elderberry extract, Vitamin C and Zinc, all of which are which extremely powerful antioxidants that minimise cell damage and strengthen the body's immunity by stabilising the free radicals, thus helping to reduce damage to the body that could potentially cause illness and disease.
Elderberries are a rich source of nutrients and active compounds that benefit the immune system. Anthocyanins, rich phytochemicals called flavonoids, are what gives the elderberries their dark colour, and are powerful antioxidants that protect against free-radical damage and oxidation.
These anthocyanins are located in the purple pigment of black elderberries. Scientific research has shown that the anthocyanins in black elderberry can increase the production of cytokines, the proteins that act as messengers within the immune system, and in doing so, serve to improve the body's immune response.
ElderMax™ contains extracts of black elderberry making ElderMax™ is a rich source of anthocyanins which have been shown to help maintain the body's immune system.
