Natural Factors Black Elderberry features ElderCraft® black elderberries hand-harvested in Austria for immune and respiratory support. Elderberries are used to help relieve symptoms of cold and flu, including catarrh and congestion, fever, cough, and sore throat. In some studies, standardized elderberry extracts have been seen to reduce symptoms of viral infection by half and cut short the duration of symptoms by 3–4 days.

Elderberries are very nutrient-dense and have been used for thousands of years in traditional herbal medicine to support immune function and respiratory health. Elderberries have also been used in herbal medicine as an alternative to help remove accumulated waste products via the kidneys, skin, and mucous membranes.

ElderCraft® European black elderberry extract is a proprietary active blend of natural fruit polyphenols created using elderberries sourced directly from the farmers who nurture and harvest the crops. This standardized extract is created using a unique solvent-free process that preserves and protects the antioxidant effects of anthocyanins, polysaccharides, and other beneficial micronutrients found naturally in elderberries.

Natural Factors Black Elderberry is non-GMO, standardized to 14% anthocyanins, and available in 100 mg fast-acting softgels suitable for adults and children aged 6 and older. It offers a convenient way to support immune system function and respiratory health with just 1–2 fast-acting softgels per day.
