Sambucus—the #1 Selling Black Elderberry Brand†
For centuries, the dark berries of European black elder, Sambucus nigra L., have been traditionally used as a winter remedy. Nature’s Way® Sambucus Black Elderberry products are made from a unique cultivar of black elderberries that has a higher level of naturally-occurring flavonoids. Each product contains full-spectrum black elderberry extract standardized to anthocyanins, which are potent flavonoid BioActives®. Also, each batch of Nature’s Way® Sambucus is meticulously tested for activity and bioavailability within the body—guaranteeing potency and effectiveness. Sambucus is available in a wide variety of formulas for adults and kids, including great tasting syrups, organic syrups, zinc lozenges, gummies, drops, fizzy drink mixes, softgels, and a water enhancer.
As cold season approaches, a clinically proven option for the entire family is the Umcka root extract from a member of the geranium family known as Pelargonium sidoides. Umcka has been extensively studied in well-designed clinical trials of over 4,000 adults and children. It has been found to successfully and safely treat not only the common cold, but also shorten the
severity and duration of other respiratory tract infections, such as bronchitis, sinusitis, and tonsillitis.1 Due to its multi-action approach to treating viral upper respiratory tract infections, this unique, natural remedy actually reduces symptoms instead of merely masking them.
An independent review of this study by physicians writing for the Journal of Family Practice concluded, “In the final analysis, we think that these findings justify recommending this to our patients.”3 They also add, “Our conclusion is that patients should be advised to purchase the medication to have on hand at home at the start of the cold season.” Multiple studies have also shown Umcka can decrease the severity and duration of acute bronchitis in adults and children.4, 5 Pelargonium sidoides root extract has been proven to be extremely safe in both adults as well as children 6 years of age and older. Children under 6 years of age should consult a physician. Be ready for this year’s cold season with these safe and effective natural remedies. Sambucus Black Elderberry products can help you boost your immune system and regulate immune response, thus helping your body defend against illness.† But, if you still find yourself succumbing to a cold weather-related illness, you can feel better and recover quicker with Umcka ColdCare. This year, prepare your immune system and get back to your life faster with these natural solutions from Nature’s Way®!
