Sunshine Heroes Elderberry Immune
How It Works:
Fall and winter months can be especially challenging for children. Their underdeveloped immune systems and picky diets often lack vitamins and nutrients. Sunshine Heroes Elderberry Immune soft chews provide key vitamins, minerals, herbs and other nutrients that play essential roles in building and maintaining healthy immune function, including vitamin D and elderberry. Mounting evidence shows that in addition to supporting bone health, vitamin D is critical to the immune system. Vitamin D shortages are now being recognized as widespread in the United States, prompting health officials to plan an increase to the Recommended Daily Intakes for children and adults. Scientific evidence suggests that vitamin D offers a variety of benefits to the immune system, including enhancing innate immunity. In fact, vitamin D receptors are present on activated T- and B-lymphocytes, monocytes and macrophages—all important components of the immune system.
Elderberry fruit contains flavonoids—antioxidants that help support the immune system. Elderberry has been widely studied and found to boost the immune system. A randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled study found that people who received elderberry extract had significantly stronger immune system response compared to a placebo group.

Nature's Sunshine Probiotic Eleven is a unique combination of healthful probiotics to help maintain and replenish intestinal supply. These microorganisms perform essential functions in the body and are affected by aging, adverse intestinal pH, microbial interactions, environmental and dietary temperatures, stress, physiological factors, peristalsis, bile acids, host secretions and immune responses.
Probiotic Eleven provides 11 species of live microorganisms that exert many beneficial health effects. Among other things, they support digestion, promote immunity and aid in the elimination of toxins. Probiotics also help regulate intestinal functions and can greatly support colon function. This specially formulated blend contains strains of important gut-beneficial organisms and prebiotics (non-digestible foodstuffs, including fiber) that serve as food for the probiotics in the colon. Clinical studies have shown that short- and long-chain fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) may improve growth of friendly microorganisms, enhance mineral absorption, support bowel health and function, and promote immune function.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, L. acidophilus, L. brevis, L. bulgaricus, L. plantarum, Streptococcus thermophilus, B. infantis, B. longum, L. casei, L. salivarius and FOS (short- and long-chain).
