The Sambucol Story

Our history is as rich as the soil our berries grow in

We are The Original Elderberry Brand

Sambucol started with one scientist’s mission, and we’ve been focused on nothing but elderberry ever since. We’ve been perfecting our Sambucol formula over dozens of years so we can make the best products for you and your family.

We are the Original Elderberry Brand. Elderberry is our passion and your health is our mission. With so many great-tasting elderberry products to choose from, we’ve got you, your family, and your immune systems supported.*

Where nature and science meet

Our story starts in the fields of Europe, where elder trees grow wild. Decades ago, a budding scientist set out to find the secret to the elderberry’s incredible health benefits and discovered a powerful extract that would one day become Sambucol.

Sambucol is where nature and science meet. It is the product of years of study and centuries-old folk traditions. Sambucol taps into the natural benefits of black elderberries—one of nature’s most incredible superfruits—and harnesses those powers for overall wellness.

Since our beginning, we have been on the same mission: to make powerful products inspired by nature and formulated for your health.

Good health starts with a healthy immune system

Your immune system is a fundamental part of your health. It’s what keeps your body going through long winter months and impacts how you feel every day. Without a healthy immune system, you can’t do the things you love to do.

We help give you the support you need to take on the day. Every Sambucol product taps into the natural powers of black elderberry to help strengthen your immune system.*

Because your family’s health is just as important as your own, we’ve developed products for every member of your tribe. From infancy to adulthood, you can help keep your entire family’s immune systems supported year-round.*

Our Premium Berries

Have you ever thought about exactly what’s in your immune support supplement? You should. Not every brand is as stringent as we are about what goes into each product and what doesn’t. Not to mention the quality of the actual elderberries being used. Because not all elderberries are alike.

We’re extremely choosy about what berries go into every Sambucol bottle. It’s kind of our thing. Since our start, we’ve only used the premium European Haschberg variety of black elderberry (Sambucus nigra). We choose them because the berries are grown under some of the best conditions in the world. They’re packed with all the good stuff you expect in your immune support product.*

Better Berries, Better Immune Support*

Sambucol’s premium Haschberg berries are grown in Central Europe. The fertile soil and ideal elevation of the farms we work with lead to some of the best berries. These elderberries are deep, dark purple in color because of their high anthocyanin content. The anthocyanins that cause that deep purple color are also what provide the amazing immune support benefits.*

Perfection is in the Process

Sambucol starts with premium berries, but it doesn’t end there. Our entire cultivation process helps to ensure you get the best product.

We source our black elderberries from farms that have been growing them for generations. The berries are then harvested by hand at peak ripeness over a short harvest period.

We then use our proprietary extraction process to press the juice from the berries. This unique process helps to maintain freshness and potency, making Sambucol syrups closest to the whole fruit. Our syrups even meet the standards of strict European Fruit Juice Laws!

Original, Premium, Trusted. The Sambucol difference is our rich history, our premium ingredients, and the trust we have built through our decades of experience.
