Scientific evidence suggests elderberries have proven to be useful by improving the function of mucous membranes. Elderberries contain high levels of vitamin C which have shown to act as a natural antihistamine, reducing the amount of histamine the body produces in response to an allergen.

Organic supplements can provide the nutritional benefit of organic whole food. Organically grown produce, (which avoids the use of pesticides and other chemicals) is more resistant to microbial and pest damage through the naturally occurring unique plant compounds. The use of carefully selected partner plants in organic growing can also help to repel pests. These two attributes enhance the nutritional quality of organic produce.
If you are considering organic supplements, make sure you look for the Soil Association logo on the label. The Soil Association is the gold standard in organic certification. Viridian Nutrition provides the highest range of Soil Association certified nutritional supplements and oils.
