EAGLE ELDERBERRY VITAL PROTECT 60T
Elderberry Viral Protect is a powerful combination of Elderberry and nutritional cofactors zinc and vitamin C. Studies have found Elderberry extracts support healthy immune function by assisting the production of cytokines in response to viral infection.
Suffering with cold or flu symptoms
Sluggish immune function
High risk individuals children, the elderly and pregnant women
May reduce the duration of colds.
Relief of symptoms of influenza/flu.
Can assist in the treatment of flu by reducing the severity and duration of symptoms.
Elderberry has been shown to reduce the duration of flu and reduces symptoms such as aches, pains and fever.
Elderberry contains anthocyanins which have been shown to be potent antioxidants. It is believed that these compounds may also support immune function by assisting production of cytokines.
Zinc, Vitamin C and Elderberry help maintain healthy, normal immune function and possess potent antioxidant activity.

Enveloped viruses, including those responsible for the common cold and flu bind to, and subsequently enter and replicate within host cells via the use of spike proteins located on their outer membranes. The two types of viral spikes are haemagglutinin, a triangular rod-like protein, and neuraminidase a mushroom shaped enzyme. Neuraminidase dissolves the protective layer of mucous, exposing the respiratory cells beneath. Here haemogglutinin spikes open the cells, allowing viral entry to healthy cells; once inside the virus is free to replicate and infect other surrounding healthy cells. Research demonstrates the antiviral activity of Elderberry, thought to be due to the various proanthocyanidins present in the fruit. Elderberry neutralises the haemogglutinin spikes present on viruses, and reduces the ability of the virus to replicate.(1) In addition to inhibiting viral binding, Elderberry also supports immune activity, increasing cytokine production in response to infective agents.(2)
