Elder-Zinc Lozenges - 90 Loz
  • Supports Immune System
  • Promotes Healthy Immune Function
  • Support for Seasonal Changes
  • A Dietary Supplement

Each lozenge contains Elderberry Extract powder that is synergistically formulated with Zinc and Vitamin C for maximum effectiveness.  Zinc is a trace mineral that plays a important role in supporting the immune system.  Echinacea, Propolis and Slippery Elm have been added to complement this unique formula.  Elderberry has the ability to prevent viruses from reproducing, so it really helps lessen the length & severity of a cold & the flu.  These tasty lozenges really help soothe a sore throat, and are great to have on hand at the first sign of any sickness.

Elderberry has a very high ORAC score, over twice as much as blueberry and cranberry. It contains trace minerals and has more vitamin C than oranges. Studies have shown that elderberry supports brain health, improves immune coordination, protects blood vessels and reduces cancer cell growth patterns in the body. It is very anti-viral, and has the ability to knock the spike off of a virus, rendering it unable to reproduce.  This is way elderberry can shorten the duration & intensity of a viral infection.

Zinc is so important because it is found in every tissue in the body and is directly involved in cell division. It is a powerful antioxidant, helping to prevent cancer, but zinc also is directly involved in proper endocrine function and the maintenance of ideal hormone levels. Zinc deficiency makes both men and women infertile and causes low libido.

Low zinc also exacerbates the effects of stress on the body and accelerates aging.  Additionally, adequate zinc is necessary for optimal physical performance, energy levels, and body composition. Zinc affects protein synthesis and is required for proper function of red and white blood cells.

Echinacea is the most well-known of medicinal herbs, and many studies confirm its effectiveness. For maximum effectiveness, take it with the first symptoms of infection, preventing it from taking hold. Once an infection has invaded the body Echinacea can help to shorten the recovery time. In comparison with antibiotics, Echinacea works by stimulating our own immune system, where antibiotics destroy both harmful and beneficial bacteria. 

Using Echinacea instead of antibiotics your immune system becomes better able to deal with infections and viruses. Research has shown that Echinacea boosts the activity and function of cells which are called Natural Killer (NK) cells. Echinacea has been known to have some restorative qualities and medicinal uses. Modern research has shown the potential for echinacea as a tool for fighting viruses and keeping the immune system healthy.

Elderberry Zinc Lozenges- Boost to the Immune System!
Absolutely the best we've found to boost the immune system and we've tried everything. This is the first year in over 10 that we did not get sick ... not for one day and I work with pre-schoolers every Sunday. With the very first sign of a sniffle; we doubled up and we avoided flus, colds, sinusitis and everything else my husband and I always seem to get every year - last year, I was sick for almost SIX weeks ... wish I would have known about Now's Zinc Elderberry then! :)
