Enhanced Delivery System / Immune Health Support Solution
Antioxidant, Immune Health
ElderZinc™ is a new Enhanced Delivery System, combining an Elderberry Juice Matrix with a Stabilized Zinc, that is unlike any other product on the market. It is an innovative combination formula that protects the bioactive polyphenols and anthocyanins in elderberry juice concentrate during processing. This also allows for better stability and protection from the harsh pH of the gut leading to better absorption. ElderZinc™ also includes a unique zinc delivery and stabilization system designed to significantly improve dispersibility and palatability of zinc. This synergistic formula makes ElderZinc™ the most innovative elderberry/zinc dietary ingredient for immune support – offering better absorption, stability and palatability.
