The elderberry (Sambucus nigra) has a long history of traditional use in central Europe, especially in the Swiss Alps region where it has been prized for centuries. Sambu Guard offers a combination of wild-grown elderberries and elder flowers along with other immune-enhancing ingredients.* Each of the ingredients in Sambu®Guard has been selected because of the specific function it contributes to the formula, and for its ability to work synergistically with the others for maximum effect. A must-have for every household, Sambu Guard supports a strong immune response and is most effective when taken at the first sign of symptoms before they become full-blown.* This delicious tasting herbal syrup can be enjoyed by every member of the family to support and secure the body’s natural defenses.*

Sambu®Guard has not been the subject of any clinical trials but elderberry, echinacea purpurea, and vitamin C individually have. Elderberry has shown to be safe and effective in clinical trials (1). *
The anthocyanin flavonoids in elderberry seem to be the main active ingredients that support a strong immune response (2,3).* These flavonoids also incorporate themselves into cells and tissues to provide protective antioxidant effects (3,4). *
