Natures Answer does an excellent job of putting this syrup together. I have had good luck with this when a cold or flu type of symptoms are coming on. I take more than the recommended dosage as it is very conservative. I take 3-4 tea spoons 3-4 times per day. If your digestion is off you may find taking more is critical as you may have absorbtion issues. Also if you are a larger than average person you will want to take more that the label recommended dosing. Combine this with higher doses of Vitamin C and local honey and you will be on your way to getting better faster. Famous Herbalist and author Rose Mary Gladstar is a fan of Elderberry syrup. If you make it yourself, she recommends only using the blue berries as the red are potentially toxic. If you found this review helpful kindly click the YES button.

This is a superb product. Have been taking it for the past 3 months on recommendation from my brother. Highly recommended as preventive protection. Hardly caught a cold, and when it did come by, it's just a few sniffles and it was gone again.

Does it really work? I don't know. I didn't have a flu for a long time even though my family members constantly have a cold or flu. So I guess it works. It tastes good and doesn't cost much, so why not keep one in my house?

It is too early to tell, but the taste is fine.

I have asthma and allergies, and this seems to help. Also, the flavor tastes great.

Whenever I feel the flu coming on ( Sore through/cough etc) I start taking this morning and night and it clears up pretty fast. If it had an easy pour attachment it'd be a 5 star.

Took this when I felt im starting to get sore throat and flu and I recovered after 2 days consumption however it comes with stomach discomfort. Unsure if this caused it. I will try again to confirm.
