Berry Good Black Seed Oil is a blend of Dr. Fitt's Black Seed Oil and the Elderberry & Honey Tonic from Roots and Leaves.*
Elderberry syrup is an age old remedy for the flu. It works partially because it’s virucidal - it directly kills the flu virus. However, like black seed oil, it also kills Candida. When Candida overgrows,it produces chemicals called “gliotoxins.” Gliotoxins weaken your immune system soldiers called T-cells and macrophages (monocytes). Your immune response then becomes like cutting a tomato with a spoon. The result is a prolonged immune system response, with symptoms caused by cytokine production in the absence of the direct killing effect of T cells and macrophages.
When you take elderberry or black seed oil, they bring down the levels of Candida. This reduces gliotoxins and allows the T-cells and macrophages (monocytes) to recover. The immune system response becomes more efficient at killing viruses. The study below indicates the improved function of T-cells and macrophages (monocytes) by detecting an increase in the cytokine they produce-tumor necrosis factor (TNF). It’s the recovery of T-cells and macrophages and increased production of TNF that can sometimes cause detox reactions.
“Adherent monocytes were separated from PBL and incubated with different Sambucol preparations i.e., Sambucol Elderberry Extract, Sambucol Black Elderberry Syrup, Sambucol Immune System and Sambucol for Kids. Production of inflammatory cytokines (IL-1 beta, TNF-alpha, IL-6, IL-8) was significantly increased, mostly by the Sambucol Black Elderberry Extract (2-45 fold), as compared to LPS, a known monocyte activator (3.6-10.7 fold). The most striking increase was noted in TNF-alpha production (44.9 fold). We conclude from this study that, in addition to its antiviral properties, Sambucol Elderberry Extract and its formulations activate the healthy immune system by increasing inflammatory cytokine production:
