This formula combines two powerful, time-tested herbs — elderberry and apple cider vinegar — with SBO probiotics for maximum absorption.
Fermented Elderberry & Elderberry Fruit
There’s no better way to say it: elderberry is an immune system-supporting superstar. It’s packed with antioxidant-filled flavonoids, anthocyanins and quercetin — all of which are traditionally used to support immune system health. We’ve taken high-quality elderberry fruit and combined it with fermented elderberry fruit and apple cider vinegar. Together, this is a powerful blend that’s easy for your body to absorb and use.
Clinically Studied SBO Probiotics
Each serving includes 2 billion CFU**) of an SBO probiotic strain called Bacillus coagulans. SBO, or soil-based organism, probiotics are a particularly resilient and effective strain. Unlike probiotics that need to be refrigerated to survive, SBO probiotics actually thrive in harsh environments (like the gut). We’ve included it to provide added support for a healthy gut, digestive function and healthy gut flora.*

Fermentation is an ancient process typically used to break down food into more absorbable components. This Ancient Herbals Elderberry + Probiotics is powered by our own proprietary, patent-pending, dual-stage, live fermentation process — we ferment select ingredients on a farm owned by our co-founders so that we can ensure maximum quality.

Why is this elderberry fermented?
Elderberry is made up of compounds. In order to get the benefits of elderberry as a whole, those compounds should be broken down before consumption. That is why we send our elderberry through a fermentation process in order to deliver a body-ready elderberry supplement.
When should I use this product?
You can use this product in the morning, afternoon, evening or right before bed. There is no specific time to take elderberry, but you’ll maximize benefits by taking it consistently. Find a time that works best for you to take this elderberry supplement regularly.

Why do you only include 2 billion CFUs** of Bacillus subtilis?
This is not a probiotic supplement. This unique formulation is designed to support a healthy immune system* and more. We added just the right amount of probiotics for the added immune and gut benefits. If you’re looking for a probiotic supplement, we recommend our best-selling SBO Probiotic as it contains 50 billion CFU.**
Is this product Vegan?
Yes, these capsules contain no animal products.
What is TCM?
The Traditional Chinese Method (TCM) is a system of wellness that dates back more than 2,000 years and is still practiced today. It works on the belief that Qi (which loosely translates to “vital energy” and is pronounced “chee”) is essential for overall health. TCM principles adhere to the idea that proper Qi is needed to keep all systems in balance. This ties into the concept of yin and yang, defined as opposing but complementary energies. According to TCM, like Qi, yin and yang negatively affect your health when they’re out of balance. That being said, a primary goal of TCM involves balancing their equalizing relationship. One of the ways to do that involves using specific superfoods and herbs. TCM superfoods and superherbs aim to support the overall health of the systems of the body. TCM aims to create balance in the body as a whole to promote wellness and Qi. When the yin and yang aspects of Qi are harmonized and balanced out, a person typically experiences wellbeing.
How is TCM different than Ayurveda?
Both TCM and Ayurveda approach the body in a balancing way. They both address energy flow, circulation and balance in the body. For instance, that energy is referred to as Qi in TCM and prana in Ayurveda.
While there is overlap in some of the botanicals used in both TCM and Ayurveda, each tradition also utilizes specific plants and foods. Ayurveda was born out of India, so it often recommends traditional herbs and foods widely available in that region. TCM often focuses on botanicals and fungi more readily available in China. While TCM may utilize more animal products, Ayurveda does tend to recommend more dairy, like ghee, compared to TCM.
In essence, TCM and Ayurveda are different ways to approach wellness and balance from different regions of the world.
Why aren’t your products labeled as being “dairy-free” or “nut free”?
Our products do not contain dairy, grains, nuts or soy; however, they are manufactured in facilities that may carry these allergens. This being said, all of our manufacturing partners are required to have and follow a thorough Allergen Program. The Allergen Program is to prevent the cross contamination of raw materials and processing of finished goods, where allergens may be present. Simply put, when it comes to our products and our suppliers, we follow industry best practices for full transparency and accuracy concerning our products. Therefore, where applicable for our products, we use the wording “made without dairy” and “made without nuts.”
