Black elderberry syrup is popularly used to support the immune system. But are you really getting the potency you pay for?
Elderberry supplements are more popular than ever, because they provide intensive immune support during cold and flu season, plus help protect your natural defenses all year long.
Few ingredients possess the immune-boosting star power of black elderberry. The bright, black-purple clusters of tart, tiny berries have been used to make medicinal elixirs for thousands of years.
Many varieties of elderberry exist. Only one has emerged as the queen of them all: Sambucus nigra, or black elderberry. Native to Europe, it’s loaded with polyphenol antioxidants including anthocyanins, flavonoids and tannins which are shown to help fight viruses and free radicals, and help boost immune health. * *
Darker, richer and more powerful, black elderberry contains almost TWICE the amount of pigment-producing anthocyanin antioxidants of any fruit, according to the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture.
Small Berries. Big Benefits.
Science Says: Bugs and Viruses Don’t Stand a Chance!
From immune defense to respiratory support, the benefits of elderberry are well researched and widely reported. Over 2,000 studies exist, offering a scientific view of how this antioxidant powerhouse works.
Elderberries are believed to help shorten the duration and severity of many viral conditions.[*][*] Pharmacy Times reported on a double-blind study that revealed an incredible 93.3% of participants experienced a dramatic improvement in symptoms within only 2 days compared to 6 days in the placebo group. The publication also reported: “Researchers also have found that people who have taken elderberries have higher levels of antibodies against the influenza virus…”
Anthocyanins and polysaccharides are 2 bug-battling plant molecules that stand out as the muscle behind elderberry’s power. A type of antioxidant, anthocyanins are pigment compounds that give berries their deep black-purple hue. The higher the concentration, the more potent the fruit. Polysaccharides are powerful plant starches found within cell walls. Researchers reveal that those derived from elderberry may have the ability to support healthy immune function.
As part of a daily health routine, a quality elderberry supplement can help support immune system performance and a healthy respiratory system.
For Optimal Immune System Support, Pay Attention to Potency
Whether you’ve used elderberry products for years or you’re ready to feel its immune-boosting power for the first time, you have an overwhelming selection of supplements to choose from including syrups, gummies and tablets. They may all contain elderberry, but they may not all be equal in potency. Here’s why…
You discovered that black elderberry is considered the top source. But this is only where potency begins. Equally important factors for delivering high quality include:
- What’s the freshness and condition of the fruit?
- How are elderberries prepared?
- How are the antioxidants processed?
- How is quality and freshness maintained?
Surprisingly, some elderberry products are made with boiled berries — a harsh process that degrades potency and nutrients. Others use low-quality fruit that’s past the peak of freshness. By the time these products reach you, their potency may be too low to support your immune health.
Beware of Many Elderberry Syrups and Gummies
A spoonful of sugar may ‘help the medicine go down’, but raises the question: how much elderberry extract do they actually contain? You may think the leading brand of elderberry is potent. But just ONE gummy contains 1/8 teaspoon of sugar… with only 50 mg of extract.

Introducing Nordic-Elder Shield by Body Kitchen™ — the powerful immune support formula that delivers 1,000 mg of whole black elderberry at an astonishing 27:1 potency per serving. When you need protection most, Nordic-Elder Shield helps your immune response whir into action against bugs, germs and microorganisms.
Nordic-Elder Shield uses the very best variety of elderberry, Sambucus nigra. Grown and preserved to meet international food standards, this superior non-GMO elderberry is packed with concentrated whole berry nutrition for a powerful boost to your daily immune defenses.
Using the best berries is a great start. But how berries are processed matters more than the source.
We don’t process fruit — we preserve it…
Boiling and applying extreme heat are easy ways to process fruit for syrups and gummies. But extreme temperatures can damage the potent, active compounds. Unlike many leading brands, we don’t take the easy way — we choose the right way.
Instead of cooking our fruit, Nordic-Elder Shield uses high-precision, low-temperature drying. This better approach gently eliminates moisture and transforms fruit into a proprietary, concentrated, whole berry extract chocked full of powerful goodness.
And there’s another reason why Nordic Elder-Shield delivers 20 times the potency of other brands…
