Elderberry is an anti-viral, which is very useful in this flu season. We have had a nasty flu virus going around our communities (school, church, friends), and so far my family has managed to side-step it by taking Nature's Answer Sambucus. It has a decent flavor and is not too thick, making it easier to get down. I highly recommend it, especially during cold and flu season.
It's very difficult to keep body pH at or near 7.2 with just foods, so this supplement is enabling me to keep my body pH where I want it to fight disease.
Excellent product. I use this to reduce inflammation, plus it's an anti-oxidant, so many benefits from it.

I have been using andrographis for years now, and I have a much lower incidence of winter colds, plus a shorter duration of the colds I have. Planetary Herbals puts out a good quality, affordable, consistent product and I highly recommend it.
I use this for long-term immune support. It helps me avoid colds and helps me fight off illness such as flu.
When I feel my guts getting out of balance, especially if I start getting a little loose stool (am prone to diarrhea), I start taking this for a week or so and it helps normalize everything.
Excellent product. I use it to keep my cortisol levels down, but I've also noticed my memory is much better than my husband's (same age). I started him on it a few weeks ago - maybe he'll remember where he puts stuff away!
The r- form of ALA is considered to be more biologically active. It works as an anti-oxidant, supports the production of glutathione, and probably does a lot more.
I'm using this to help reduce inflammation, but it's also good for thinning the blood; and my husband keeps telling me how good my skin looks so it must be doing something for that as well.
Excellent product. I use it to boost my immune system when I feel a cold coming on. I've definitely had fewer colds this year.
