It's all about the natural Black Elderberry
Sambucol is a range of great tasting food supplements founded on the unique qualities of natural Black Elderberries. Black Elderberries contain naturally occurring flavonoids which are packed with antioxidants.
Elderberries have been used for centuries as a natural remedy. Sambucol is produced from whole, natural Black Elderberries, each bottle of Sambucol contains 100s of Black Elderberries that hold twice the natural antioxidant capacity of blueberries and more than 50% the overall antioxidant capability of cranberries. Antioxidants strengthen the immune system by helping neutralise the harmful effect of free radicals.
All year round immune support
Sambucol can be taken all year round as a preventative measure to support your immune system.
1. During the winter
Winter weather can put additional strain on our immune systems. Warm indoors, cold outdoors, dry air and people under the weather, all this requires your immune system to fight stronger. That’s why we recommend increasing the dosage of Sambucol to winter dose (see product dosage for details).
2. At the first sign
If your child starts to feel under the weather, Sambucol can be taken to give their immune system additional support.
3. Back to school
School can be a breeding ground for germs, especially as germs can survive on classroom surfaces for up to 72 hours. Sambucol is a simple and effective answer to boost children’s immune systems and beat the school bugs, especially after the summer holiday.
4. When travelling
Aeroplanes, public transport, air-conditioned buildings and busy public areas always put your immune system through its paces
5. Before an important event
Take Sambucol to give your child's immune system additional support before an important occasion like a holiday or during stressful times like exams or interviews.

The History of Sambucol
Sambucol was first developed in 1991 by a world-renowned virologist who discovered that black elderberries also had significant antioxidant properties, thanks to the rich phytonutrient flavonoids (anthocyanins) present in the Black Elderberries. Certain flavonoids (anthocyanins) are found primarily in the pigments of dark blue and deep purple fruits such as the Black Elderberry. It is these that have a remarkable ability to stimulate the body’s immune system. Flavonoids are powerful, natural antioxidants that are thought to work to protect the body’s cells from the potential damage caused by free radicals.
Dr. Madeleine Mumcuoglu recognised the potential of the flavonoids present in the Black Elderberry and cultivated a unique formulation and extraction process which preserves and maximises the naturally occurring health benefits of the berry, and thus developed Sambucol. It has since gone on to become a supplement that is relied on and trusted by loyal users all over the world as a great way to get daily immune system support.
Sambucol is currently sold in over 50 countries around the world and is recognised as the No.1 Worldwide best-selling, category defining, Black Elderberry range.
