    Extracts of elderberry fruit help boost your immune system and can be found in Sambucol elderberry supplements. Bioflavonoids, antioxidants, and proteins all work together to protect the body and destroy viruses that infect its cells. Sambucol helps you to fight against viruses and flu and even reduces inflammation. Studies show that individuals who take these elderberry supplements fall prey to sickness a lot less and are able to recover much faster than those who do not.

    Do your part to stay healthy

    To help your body stand strong against flu you need to boost your immunity by increasing your body’s production of cytokines (proteins that regulate the immune system’s response to disease and infection). You can do this by taking Sambucol elderberry extract each day.

    You can also boost your immune system by improving your diet and eating foods that are organic and nutritious. Lifestyle choices also shape the health of your immune system. Having regular exercise, getting eight hours of sleep, and drinking plenty of water will help to keep your body strong and functioning at its best.
