Black elderberries are among the top three fruits for anthocyanin content, second only to black chokeberries. What are anthocyanins? They are the most important of the 6 subclasses of flavonoids/bioflavonoids (the biggest family (60%) of thousands of plant micronutrients called polyphenols). They are predominantly found in red, purple, blue berries/grapes, and have powerful antioxidative properties. For comparison purpose, 100mg of whole dry fruit powder (10:1) - not an extract - contains, approx. about 0.4mg of anthocyanins. 100mg of NF's elderberry extract (64:1), on the other hand, contains 14mg while still able to preserve and retain the original phytonutrient fruit matrix of the whole berry (the original taste, flavor and aroma)! The major health benefits of elderberry? For antioxidant and immune support; eye and brain health; and they keep your hair and skin healthy as well. I have no doubt about Natural Factor's quality ingredient but the bottle cover doesn't "snap" tightly, unfortunately.

I think that everybody should have a pot of elderberry at home in this challenging time. It is the first what I take for flu and cold, it works great. It consists of antioxidants and vitamins that may boost your immune system. Elderberry could help tame inflammation, lessen stress, and help protect your heart, lower cholesterol and reduce risk of cancer. In addition to acting as antioxidants and fighting free radicals, anthocyanins also may offer anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and anti-cancer benefits. 100mg of 64:1 extract, 1 softgel 1–2 times per day. Stay healthy.

I have started using this as the weather is getting hot and cold easily these days. I feel the immediate impact after I got runny nose with sudden hot and cold weather. This is good quality and fast action for me. The only issue I have with this is the soft gels difficult to segregate into each piece. Almost all the pieces are stick together and it's really difficult to split into each pieces. The moisture absorbent packs are not present and would be massive improvement if packed. There is no after taste and it is quite fast acting ingredient for me. So, I recommend this dietary supplement for immune support system and will buy again. Thanks for reading.

Small and easy to swallow (taking 2 a day), taking this together with blueberry and cherry supplements from the same brand daily, experience some improvement in energy levels, and eyes feel less tired, less pain in the joints, better sleep and other usual pluses one gets from taking berry supplements, so not sure if it is just due to elderberry or the elderberry/blueberry/cherry combo working the above mentioned magic though.

Use it when there is a cold season or when the first symptoms of flue, cold or other respiratory issue comes up. With this it will take less time for you to get better as helps your immune system strong in combat of all these external intruder .I've been taking Black Elderberry for quite a few years, mainly in the winter, to support my immune system. I've purchased multiple bottles of this product and they have consistently been high-quality. Of the name-brand elderberry capsules, this one is always a reasonable price and it's usually our go-to

The quality of this item is very high in my opinion. I have continued to purchase it because it has successfully supported and shown improvements in my immune system. The taste is very weak and the soft-gels are easy to swallow. You get a lot in the bottle, too which is always a benefit.

Omcrn swept through South Korea Feb-Apr 2022. 40% of coworkers had it so far. I take elderberry with vit C and zinc, querctn, and gargle with olive lead extract. Twice I started having sore throat, and nipped it in the bud by the next day. Try it! If helpful, be so kind to give a thumbs up. Thanks
