Unlocking the power of elderberries
What makes elderberries so special?
Sambucol was first developed in 1991 by Dr. Madeleine Mumcuoglu, a renowned virologist who discovered that black elderberries had significant antioxidant properties thanks to the rich phytonutrient flavonoids (anthocyanins) present. It’s these flavonoids that have the ability to support the body’s immune system in a remarkable way, specifically against the harmful effects of free radicals.
Dr. Mumcuoglu recognised the potential of the flavonoids in elderberries and developed a unique formulation and extraction process which preserves and maximises the naturally occurring benefits of the berry. The result was Sambucol, a world-leading support formula now sold in over 50 countries.
