Product Description

terry-naturally-europharma-logo.png  Daily Immune Support* With Elderberry
  Clinically Studied Ingredients
  Elderberry is a rich source of powerful anthocyanins for a strong immune response.
  Vitamin A helps boost the body’s natural resistance.
  Vitamin C is a powerful free-radical fighter.
  Vitamin D helps maintain a strong immune defense at a cellular level by regulating T-cell activity. It is also one of the nutrients most often lacking in many diets.
  Zinc supports healthy T-lymphocyte activity and immune defense.*

ViraPro™ provides a powerful blend of vitamins and minerals along with standardized elderberry extract to support a healthy immune system.*

Recommendations: 1 tablet daily. If additional support is needed take 3 to 6 per day, not to exceed 7 days.

FAQ's

Q: Should I take ViraPro every day, or only for a limited time?

A: You can take ViraPro each day to support your immune system. However, if you need to meet specific immune challenges, you can double the dosage for a brief time and then go back to your regular regimen.

Q: What advantages does freeze-drying give to elderberry extract?

A: 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.

Q: What are anthocyanins?

A: Anthocyanins are a type of natural 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 health concerns, including a healthy immune response.* 

Q: Why do you use elderberry grown in Austria?

A: The reason ViraPro™ features Austiran-grown elderberry is because this variety produces a deep purple fruit that is especially rich 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.

Q: Why do you use the retinyl acetate form of vitamin A instead of beta-carotene?

A: 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. 

Q: What makes this different from Elderberry Immune Defender™?

A: While both ViraPro™ and Elderberry Immune Defender contain powerful elderberry extracts, Elderberry Immune Defender also provides blackcurrant extract, lactoferrin, and the probiotic Lactobacillus sporogenes. Each one gives you an excellent way to support daily immune health, but they take slightly different approaches. Elderberry Immune Defender’s lactoferrin and probiotic ingredients focus on maintaining immune health through the digestive tract, while ViraPro is a vegan option for those looking for convenient, once-daily support.

How it Works:

 

ViraPro™ provides a strong extract of Austrian elderberry (Sambucus nigra) combined with immune-supporting vitamin and mineral ingredients for year-round protection.*

 

Elderberry (Sambucus nigra) has long been recognized for its support of the body’s immune defenses. While the entire plant has been used and studied, the berries are an especially rich source of anthocyanins that have strong antioxidant properties and support a healthy lymphocyte response.* The elderberry used in ViraPro is standardized to provide 15% anthocyanins.1-4

 

Vitamin A helps boost the body’s protective ability when it is most needed. It supports macrophage and natural killer cell activity, and provides overall immune support and antioxidant protection from free radical damage.*5

 

Vitamin C is well-known for immune support. Much of the reason for this is due to its ability to fight free radical damage and other stresses to our overall health.* 2,6

 

Vitamin D3: While vitamin D is well-known for its support of bone health, it is also an important nutrient to support immune system response and overall respiratory function. The vitamin D form in ViraPro is cholecalciferol – vitamin D3 – because it mirrors the vitamin D form that is synthesized in the body.7-10

 

Zinc is vital for immune defense and proper function of the immune system. It is required for T-lymphocyte activity. Zinc is thought to have immunomodulating activity.*11-13
