Wide Availability of Original Black Elderberry Products, Sambucol(R), Highlights this Little-Known Berry that has Twice the Antioxidants of Both Blueberries and Cranberries

NOTTINGHAM, England, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- A little known berry, Sambucus nigra L, otherwise known as black elderberry, that is native to most of Europe, northwest Africa and southwest Asia, is making itself known this year here in the United States in the form of a dietary supplement called Sambucol(R), now being sold in drug chains and health food/vitamin stores throughout the U.S, just in time for winter.

The Sambucol(R) brand -- not to be confused with other products with similar names -- has been sold for the past 15 years in more than 15 countries but with limited availability here in the U.S. However, beginning this month, the Sambucol(R) brand will now have wider distribution throughout the U.S. in major chains, such as CVS, Rite Aid and Walgreens, as well as all Vitamin Shoppes, and many independent health food stores.
