AntiVirin ®

Antivirin is the name that was given as the proprietary property, believed to be the active that inhibits the spread of the flu virus. The term was given by the developer of Sambucol, Dr Madeleine Mumcuoglu
Antivirin effectively can be found in all black elderberries, but due to the patented process, the levels are exceptionally high in Sambucol. Further studies are still being carried out on Antivirin and at this stage we suggest it is to only be used for marketing purposes. I cannot be more scientific at this time due to the fact that further studies are either being planned or are underway. As to when we will see the results of these I am unclear as it may take some time.

All the clinical studies that have been carried out using have used Sambucol, not the general black elderberries on their own.
Treating Viruses
Studies have shown that taking a supplement containing black elderberry may be beneficial to help boost the immune system at times when it may be weakened, such as when suffering with a cold, flu or other viruses. A study using an elderberry extract (Zakay-Rones 1995) showed inhibition of several flu viruses in vitro.
An Antiviral Agent - "Antivirin"
Viruses are unable to multiply on their own and need to be inside healthy cells to do so. To help them enter a cell some viruses are coated with haemagglutinin spikes. Black Elderberry Extract is believed to contain an antiviral agent, ‘Antivirin’ which can help neutralise the activity of the haemagglutinin spikes. When these spikes are deactivated the viruses can no longer pierce cell walls to enter the cell and replicate. (Figure 1)
Elderberries are particularly rich in flavonoids, in particular anthocyanins. These act as powerful antioxidants to help the immune system defend itself.

Anthocyanins are found in the pigment of purple, dark blue and red fruits such as the black elderberry. Elderberries contain higher flavonoid content than other fruits including cranberries, blackcurrants and blackberries and almost 5 times the anthocyanins content of blueberries.
Due to the high anthocyanin content, the black elderberry has powerful antioxidant properties to also help attack the viruses.
