Medox ® - The natural way to boost your immune system


 Will Medox® react with any other medicines?

Literally millions of capsules have been consumed since 2001 and thus far there have been no known interactions with other medicines.

In the event that you wish to take Medox® at the same time as Warfarin you should contact your doctor first.

Have there been any side effects with Medox® ?

Medox® has now been on the market since 2001 during which time several million capsules have been consumed.

Additionally, 1500 users have been followed up over a 2 year period with no reports of any significant side effects.

Medox® is a pure, natural product derived from bilberries and blackcurrants so side-effects would not be expected under normal circumstances. This does not preclude, however, the possibility of some perople being allergic to the anthocyanins contained in these berries.

The only other substance used in Medox® is maltodextrin which is a neutral compound made from maize.

What is the recommended dose?

For healthy people with a balanced diet and regular bowel function the recommendation is 1 capsule per day.

People with diets that are lacking in fruit, berries and vegetables can benefit from taking 2 capsules per day.

Seniors can also benefit from taking more than 1 capsule per day.

Active individuals who take a lot of strenuous activity can also take 2 capsules a day or perhaps 1 per day in quiet periods followed by 2 per day in periods of intense activity.

What are anthocyanins?

Anthcyanins (antho=plant, cyan=blue) are naturally occurring pigments that give plants their blue colour while providing them with their own immune system.

International clinical research has shown anthocyanins to have significant health giving properties and to be the most effective antioxidants known.

The anthocyanin molecules found in Medox® are delphinidin and cyaniding.

International research has shown that these anthocyanins strengthen the immune system, help prevent inflammation and reduce oxidative stress.

What body of research is there?

Continuing studies have been carried out on both the anthocyanins used in Medox® and on the Medox® capsules themselves.

The Biolink Group AS supplies anthocyanin molecules together with several other types of polyphenols for clinical studies to University Hospitals, Universities and other research institutions in more than 40 countries around the world and to over 30 states in the USA. 

Literally hundreds of studies have been carried out using Biolink molecules that are often taken as the standard for these types of substances.

This research activity has been growing steadily since 1998 and Biolink is considered to be leading the world in this particular field.

What sets Medox® apart from other antioxidants and bilberry products?

After the launch of Medox® in 2001 there were several products that claimed similar effects.

Today there are numerous players in this market but none with a technical and clinical profile to match Medox® .


Wouldn't it be just as beneficial to eat fresh bilberries?

Not only would it require very large quantities of fresh bilberries to obtain the same amount of anthocyanins as from Medox® but new studies have also shown that the anthocyanins are absorbed more effectively from Medox® than eating the berries.

Also the anthocyanin content of fresh bilberries can vary depending on a number of environmental factors whereas the content of Medox® capsules is constant.

What are the capsules made from?

The capsules are made from cellulose and do not contain any gluten or preservatives.

Can children use Medox® ?

Medox® is a pure and natural product derived from bilberries and blackcurrants. Medox® can be given to children and infants at the recommended dose of 1 per day.

Can the contents of the capsule be emptied and taken with food or drink?

It is absolutely fine to open the capsule and mix the contents with, for example, juice or yoghurt.
