What are anthocyanins?
Anthocyanins are a type of plant compound (known as flavonoids) found in many fruits, vegetables, and other plants – especially those that are red, blue, or purple. In most cases, they are associated with the color of the fruit, but they also provide strong antioxidant protection for the fruit – and anyone who consumes it. Anthocyanins have been studied for their ability to support many aspects of health, including a healthy immune response.*
Why do you use the retinyl acetate form of vitamin A instead of beta-carotene?
The retinyl acetate form of vitamin A is used in ViraPro because it is the form proven to provide reliable immune support.* While beta-carotene is a valuable nutrient, it is a “pro-vitamin A” which means that while it can turn into vitamin A in the body, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it will.
Why do you use elderberry grown in Austria?
The reason ViraPro features Austrian-grown elderberry is because this variety produces a deep purple fruit that is especially abundant in anthocyanin content. In fact, Austria is a center of elderberry production in Europe because of its combination of growing season, climate, and superior harvesting and processing techniques.
What advantages does freeze-drying give to elderberry extract?
Drying is an ancient process used to preserve food. Unfortunately, the nutritional content in foods can be drastically altered or reduced when dried conventionally. This is why a freeze-dried elderberry extract is superior. The absence of water combined with the low process temperature stops cellular deterioration, enzymatic activity, and microbiological reactions.
Freeze-drying retains the highest level of antioxidants, anthocyanins, and other components and has the longest shelf life of any known drying process. Freeze-drying the elderberries concentrates the dynamic power of the fruit into a convenient, standardized extract.
Should I take ViraPro every day, or only for a limited time?
You can take a ViraPro tablet each day to support your immune system.* However, if additional support is needed, you may increase to 3-6 times daily, for up to 7 days.
