Convenient way to keep colds away -

I always took the elderberry extract liquid at the first sign of a cold. Now I have the convenience of a lozenge. Love NOW products - excellent quality. A in upstate NY
Elderberry & Zinc Lozenges

I have been using the NOW Elderberry Lozenges for several years and think they are a great boost for the immune system. I start taking them when I have symptoms of a cold.
Kill Every Cold
Posted by Reviewer1283525 on Nov 27, 2007
I don't think I could survive without this stuff! Kills all sore throats, bacterial AND viral, before they multiply. Good tasting and soothing. One product that seems to suppress the zinc's tendency to make one nauseous. Love the stuff.
Chalky, inferior stuff
Posted by pickier-than-thou on Feb 24, 2010
It tastes like expired medicine and slightly irritates the mouth. The fact that it contains sorbitol isn't a plus either. Won't buy again for sure, this or the other products I've tried from Now Foods. Actually I'm quite reluctant to buy anything else from them, but some customers said it's a hit or miss brand so I'll take my chance on their food (nuts) already on my wish list.

We have used other elderberry and zinc lozenges but since we love NOW foods we decided to try these. Several reviews said they tasted good, but even knowing the benefit I can't keep one in my mouth long enough for it to dissolve. The texture is gritty and chalky and the taste is very medicinal. No way our children will take these. We are going back to our old brand. First NOW foods product we haven't loved.
Hurts sore throat..

It may just be me but I tried this product to help my inflamed sore throat and it made it hurt all the more. It seemed too acidic for me at the time.
Will Try Something Else

These did not agree with me. I read that zinc is not well absorbed with sorbitol. I will try another formulation next time.

These really do fend off a bad cold if you use them right at the beginning when you get the very first symptom such as a scratchy throat. It's also important to take one every two hours, but not more than 5 a day. Resist the temptation to chew them and just let them dissolve slowly in your mouth. They work for me every time.
Good for cold/flu and sore throat
Posted by Reviewer1876286 on Aug 19, 2007
I have finished one bottle and it seems pretty good. Good synergistic mix of ingredients. Sore throat clears up fast and duration of cold/flu symptoms has shortened. Have ordered another bottle to keep in stock. Will be recommending it to friends and relatives. Taste wonderful. :) Forget about antibiotics. :(
