Splash Candy™ Defense Chews contains three immunity boosting ingredients: Elderberry, Vitamin C, and Zinc.  

Elderberry, particularly from the sambucus nigra plant, has been a long-standing herbal remedy with a variety of potential immune-boosting properties (1). They are rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, and anthocyanins which can help protect from oxidative stress and damage from free radicals (2)(3). A meta-analysis of scientific research has found that elderberry supplementation could help combat both the duration and the severity of the common cold and influenza by enhancing inflammatory cytokine production (4)(5)(6).

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for supporting the immune system by stimulating the production of white blood cells, promoting protective barriers through collagen synthesis, and protecting cell membranes from damage caused by free radicals (7). Individuals with a Vitamin C deficiency are more susceptible to illness and other detrimental health effects (8). Taking a Vitamin C supplement may help combat the symptoms of colds and other illnesses (9).

Zinc is an essential mineral that plays a vital role in supporting the immune system (10). Zinc is critical for the development and function of immune cells, regulation of inflammation, and protection against oxidative stress (11)(12). Zinc-deficient patients may have severe immune dysfunctions (10)(13). Randomly Controlled Trials have shown promising results with zinc supplementation leading to the enhancement of cytotoxic T-lymphocytes production (14).
