Elderberry E-Hist is a blend of antioxidants, botanicals, enzymes and flavonoids combined to support the immune system for seasonal allergic responses to common environmental allergens.
Elderberry Extract has extensively been used to support health during bouts with viral type infections such as the flu and the common cold. However, evidence supports that the anti-inflammatory properties of elderberries reduce swelling of the mucous membranes. Extensive research confirms that the most powerful antioxidant berries are those that contain a class of polyphenols known as anthocyanins. Elderberry anthocyanins strongly combat oxidative stress, a causative factor in the pathogenesis of many ailments like allergic disorders. Elderberries are rich in organic pigments, tannin, amino acids, carotenoids, flavonoids, rutin, viburnic acid, vitamin A, vitamin B and a large amount of vitamin C.
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that must be consumed in the diet. As one of the most commonly suggested vitamins to boost the immune system, Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant. This plays a very important role in the body’s response to triggers of environmental allergens, increasing the response to deactivate histamine, the cause of inflammation.
Quercetin is natural bioflavonoid found in many foods, however, it is very challenging to consume enough thru the diet. The main action of Quercetin is to stabilize mast cells and block them from releasing histamine. The strong antioxidant properties of Quercetin aid in regulating inflammatory properties such as leukotrienes and prostaglandins.
Bromelain is an enzyme found in pineapple. Its actions are two fold; it aids in the absorption of Quercetin as well as reducing circulating allergen protein complexes.
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine is a very important amino acid precursor to Glutathione. Glutathione is a potent antioxidant and along with N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine it helps to reduce the thick mucus that allergens produce.
