        We have always loved natural elderberry concentrate and the fact that it was all natural. However, please be forewarned that the description is incorrect. This company has started putting preservatives in their ingredients, as well as other juices such as apple and grape, with elderberry being low on the list. Also, I had a very difficult time getting Vitamin Shoppe to take back this item, even though their website is inaccurate in describing this product.

                You will NOT receive what is here advertised!!

                My order, placed in March of 2014, was for Elderberry Concentrate, see photo in this ad and description. I received Elderberry Concentrate Blend. This product now apprears to be a blend of Elderberry, Grape and Apple concentrates, with added preservatives. It is no longer as advertised.

                The Vitamin Shoppe web master needs to update the information for this product!!

                  Elderberry extract is the fourth ingredient and they now use preservatives. You are paying alot for apple juice and grape juice. Vitamin shoppe sells Sambucus elderberry extract that has elderberry extract as the main ingredient with 4000mg per serving. I like that one much better!

                          The first several bottles that I purchased of this product listed only Elderberry Juice concentrate. However, the last several bottles I purchased (both online and in the VS store)have additional ingredients listed on the bottle (which are not listed on the website) and include apple juice concentrate, grape juice concentrate, sodium benzoate, and potassium sorbate. I do not like ingesting preservatives nor do I like to ingest grape and/or apple juice concentrates that are not organic as they may have high concentrations of pesticides. I have tried (unsuccessfully) to contact the manufacturer as well as VS. If you buy this product, read your label and make sure you know what's in the bottle.

                                Vitamin Shop product information does not disclose that this product contains Sodium Benzoate as a preservative. I notified the Vitamin Shop Customer Service on 3/31/13. I received the following information off the internet (confirming information received in Physiology class years ago). Sodium Benzoate is used as a preservative and has the ability to deprive the cells in the body of oxygen, break down the immune system and cause cancer. It is the sodium salt of Benzoic Acid. Combined with vitamins C and E, causes Benezene to be formed. These are not natural foods, but a chemical formed in the laboratory.

                                      I have been ordering this product since the fall. However, I recently took another look at the ingredients on my newer bottles and to my surprise found that the ingredients list apple juice concentrate, grape juice concentrate, citric acid, sodium benzoate, and potassium sorbate. On the website, it says no preservatives, artificial ingredients, etc. But what they claim and what my label lists is not the same. Anyone else check their ingredients lately????? I have left phone messages with the manufacturer, but no response. Buyer beware.... (I have since switched to a different elderberry concentrate which SAYS no preservatives......)

                                          I tried it reserved my decision. Naturally skeptical & it turned out to be a pleasant immune builder. Like when Linus Pauling recommended Vitamin "C". Used it all 2012 around people that would have passed on colds and flu viruses especially from their kids. Not a cold or sore throat. The stores don't have it in stock as often as I'd like.So I mail order,& I mix it with my Brita filtered water.It Beats drinking garbage drinks with additives.It works great

                                            We have four kids 6 yrs and under, so germs are everywhere. We have been taking this for over a year. The kids get less colds and if they do get one, it is short lived. They like the taste of it and there is no added sugar. We even planted some elderberry bushes in our fruit orchard. My dad use to make jam out of elderberries when I was a kid. Vitamin Shoppe has the best price. Our local grocery store sometimes carries an 8 oz bottle, but it is almost the same price as the 16 oz bottle here. Great deal!

                                                    Elderberry Concentrate is the ONLY THING that actually works for me to keep colds away. I take it everyday. I went on vacation - air travel, so I couldn't bring it with me. I got a cold!!! Once I returned home, a started taking the Elderberry again, and within one day my cold was gone. I highly recommend this product.

It sat on the counter unopened for a month. Then my son and family came to visit. They were all sick with a bad cold. Two days after they left I could feel the cold start. I took one tablespoon and within 10 minutes the start of the cold was gone! Once open it only last 90 days so I took it everyday til gone. My son was skeptical and when we went to visit I took it with me. He was desperate because they were passing around the cold again. Two hours later he was talking his wife into taking some saying he actually felt better.

                                                                            I have used this for many years. It used to be less expensive like most things these days, but it is harder to find. I always seem to find it here at Vitamin Shoppe. I take it at the first sign of not feeling well and I add it to water, but I prefer seltzer water, which makes it feel like a healthy soda. I sometimes add a couple drops of stevia liquid ( which is optional if you want it sweeter ), but it really doesn't need it. It tastes great and works even better. I can't get it at the Vitamin Shoppe stores, wish they carried it so I didn't have to pay for shipping and the chance of it leaking or spilling on other items I purchase. Other than that it really is a great boost to your immune system and I have always had good luck with it. I will continue to buy it as long as they carry it.

Anyone else check their ingredients lately?????

Wasn't aware that it had all these other ingredients in it. Haven't used it yet, but after reading that it had sodium benzoate in it, I would not order this product again. I assumed that it was pure elderbery concentrate. I would probably purchase the next bottle of elderberry concentrate at our local health food store, so I know exactly what's in it. This is the first time I've been disappointed with anything I've ever ordered from the Vitamin Shoppe.

However, if we feel like we are coming down with something we will take 3 to 4 doses each day until we feel better. So far it has only taken a day or two to notice an improvement. Hope this helps you.

Also, I think I was mixing 2-3 Tablespoons of it w/water in a little juice glass for adults. To me, for kids, it seems like it would be no different than giving a 50 lb. child a small glass of weak grape juice; I would not see a problem giving that amount to one of my 3 kids when they were smaller, since it does not merit the concern like a pharmaceutical item would, or to stretch dollars and the bottle, cut in half if you like. I gave it routinely when anyone in the house even began to sense a cold coming on.
