The special Elderberry preparation used in Pretorius Cold & Flu is based on Elderberry clinical trials. A scientific study has shown that flu patients given Elderberry showed dramatic symptom improvement on average 4 days sooner (in 3.1 days compared to 7.1 days) than those given a placebo. The Elderberry was given within 48 hours of onset of symptoms. A further study found that taking Elderberry can markedly improve Influenza B symptoms, including fever. In this study, 93.3% of flu patients improved more quickly compared to those given a placebo.
