What makes Immune Max Black Elderberry capsules unique?
For years, doctors and medicinal experts have recommended the essential ingredients in this unique, all-in-one formula to boost the immune system and help protect against environmental threats.* This powerful blend of Extra Virgin Elderberry Juice Concentrate, Vitamin C, Vitamin D3 and Zinc, contains key ingredients that have been proven over time to be vital in supporting and promoting everyday immune health and well-being.* While individuals are often faced with the challenge of buying these ingredients separately and subsequently taking many pills a day, Enzymedica’s Immune Max is "just what the doctor ordered" in a single, easy-to-take dose.
How is this Elderberry special?
For centuries throughout Europe and the Americas, black elderberries (Sambucus nigra), have been used in traditional herbalism as a tonic to promote respiratory health and overall vitality.*1 Immune Max capsules feature Extra Virgin Black Elderberries of the European Haschberg-variety. This varietal is recognized for being naturally rich in polyphenolic compounds such as flavonoids, anthocyanins, polysaccharides, and other berry micronutrients. Our careful cold press Elderberry Juice extraction ensures these plentiful polyphenols are present in every capsule. Whilst Elderberries have a long history of safety and efficacy, modern science has revealed Elderberry polyphenols have potent antioxidant and immune supportive properties.* When these healthy, antioxidant compounds enter the bloodstream, they are powerful free radical scavengers that support our natural immune defenses.*2 New research is revealing that Elderberries also enhance the beneficial bacteria in the digestive system; fortifying the relationship between the gut, the respiratory system and whole body health.*3
How do the other ingredients support healthy immunity?
Vitamin C must be obtained through healthy foods or supplementation, and so often in our busy lives we need a little help to meet our nutritional needs. Vitamin C is a well-known antioxidant which cells within the immune system need to function, especially natural defense cells such as phagocytes and T-cells.* Our Vitamin C includes sources from Acerola; a cherry-like plant common to tropical regions of the Western Hemisphere. In addition to being a rich source of Vitamin C, these berries have been used in folk medicine for hundreds of years to support immune function.*4
Our bodies are able to manufacture Vitamin D3 from exposure to sunlight. However, many of us spend so much time indoors we are not able to manufacture enough of this naturally occurring nutrient. Vitamin D3 supports healthy immune modulation and is an invaluable ally when dealing with environmental threats.*5
Zinc is an essential mineral that your body does not store and needs to be regularly replenished. It is involved a multitude of aspects of cellular activity and plays crucial role in development and function of vital immune responses.*6
