Description

Within our MELICINAL line of products, we introduce the HONEY AND ELDERBERRY TABLETS with a honey, elderberry and lemon flavour, a natural solution that together with the zinc contribute to a normal function of the immune system (1),

The HONEY AND ELDERBERRY TABLETS of the MELICINAL line combine the benefits of elderberry (Sambucus nigra L.) and the products obtained from bees (honey and royal jelly). They also contain zinc, which contributes to a normal cognitive function (2).

Honey and royal jelly have several nutrients and provide energy to the body. The elderberry has been used for centuries for brews and dyes, it is a fruit rich in anthocyanins and flavonoids, which are anti-oxidant compounds that together with zinc protect the cells from oxidative stress (3).

Our HONEY AND ELDERBERRY TABLETS from the MELICINAL line are a combination of the best ingredients with a pleasant honey, elderberry and lemon flavour.


Detailed information

Extreme temperatures or abrupt changes in temperature, stress, season changes... all of these factors may affect the immune system and may make the first colds or flu symptoms appear.

Zinc is a micro-nutrient which is necessary for a proper function of the immune system and is key for protecting cells from oxidative stress.

Honey has been used since ancient times, it is a food that is rich in carbohydrates. Also, honey contains proteins, amino acids, minerals, organic acids, vitamins and polyphenols (4).

Elderberry (Sambucus nigra L.) is native from Europe, North Africa, and central and western Asia. It is a bush of up to 10 m high with creamy white flowers and dark purple fruits. The fruit of the elderberry is rich in vitamins A and C, flavonic compounds and anthocyanosides with antioxidant capacity (5).

Royal jelly is a viscous secretion produced in the hypopharyngeal and mandibular glands of worker bees (6). This secretion is the exclusive food for larvae of the queen bee and contains minerals (mainly calcium and iron), vitamins, fatty acids, proteins and free amino acids (7).
