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.

We've been using elderberry to keep our family and pets healthy for years. We take it as the first sniffle, and never get colds. We take a small dose before getting on a plane, never catch a thing. Elderberry is a proven antiviral, and along with grapefruit seed extract (a powerful antimicrobial) belongs in everyone's medicine chest. The Nature's Answer extract is much stronger than the syrup and goes a lot farther. Still delicious enough for the kids to take it without complaint!

This is a fantastic product! Elderberry extract strengthens your immune system, helping to fight of colds and other illnesses. This brand is highly concentrated and tastes great. Also recommended is the Gaia brand of elderberry extract.

I previously tried another brand available at iherb and liked the taste - it is like fresh, sweet juice. This product's taste is not as pleasant. Also, I am not sure this brand is processed at low temperatures as the other brand. However, this one is processed as a pharmaceutically licensed facility, so that is a plus. Maybe this works as well.

My wife noticed a throat ache and took this right away, and got better the next day. My daughter possibly had the same thing, but did not take Sambucus until fever has set in, and was not effective.

Have been taking this as a preventative measure against colds and flus during the winter months. Haven't been sick yet. Although I am sick of all the advertising for the flu shot.
