Have you ever experienced the discomfort of having flu or nasal congestion? I know I have especially with the air pollution. I know that it can be really disturbing for some and even if mine is not as bad, it was still unpleasant and I was actively looking for a solution.
Beginning of the year, I came across Dynamic Nutrition which offers a wide variety of products but the Black Elderberry Juice stood out to me the most as it’s a tried and tested remedy for relief of nasal congestion!
So, you may ask : what exactly is Elderberry?
Elderberry contains high levels of antioxidant bioflavanoids and very high amounts of the polyphenol anthocyanin, which give them their dark color. Anthocyanin’s antioxidant ability allows the berries to survive periods of intense UV light radiation from the sun. These antioxidants are passed on to those who consume the berry.
Chemicals in both the flowers and berries may help diminish swelling in mucous membranes like sinuses and help relieve nasal congestion.
Well, it’s even backed up by clinical studies : (in 21st century, everything must have proof righttt? Especially being in the healthcare profession too)
Clinical study 1 : NCBI : Inhibitory activity of a standardized elderberry liquid extract against clinically-relevant human respiratory bacterial pathogens and influenza A and B viruses
Clinical study 2 : MDPI : Elderberry Supplementation Reduces Cold Duration and Symptoms in Air-Travellers: A Randomized, Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Clinical Trial
Dynamic Nutrition’s Black Elderberry juice is just like the ready-made sachets you’ve seen, where you just need to mix 1 sachet of Black Elderberry in 150ml water or juice (below 40°C), so quick and easy!
One box contains 20 sachets and I’ve finished my one month supply at the time of writing this review for you all.
The box contains 20 small sachets like this together with the information leaflet.
The amount of powder for one sachet, despite very little but it’s actually concentrated!
Tadaa! Added around 150-200ml of water.
My verdict :
- The taste is pleasant! It has a sweet blackberry taste and you’ll feel like you’re drinking juice instead
- Sachet size is small and easy to bring around in your bag to office or anywhere you go!
- Doesn’t need to add in a lot of water, just 150ml will do.
- My nasal congestion has been recurring less frequently now
- Besides, my nose also doesn’t act up as bad as before whenever I’m in a cold environment
Therefore, if you’re also experiencing nasal congestion like I do (or rather I did 😏), here is the link to the product!
