    elderberry concentrate

    3000 year old anti-viral remedy. sip at a bottle and keep well. There`s a cooperative in Germany where it`s made. Totally cool. Finally the Americans are learning.

    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 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.

I refuse to use it now that they so sneakily changed their ingredients. It's not a high quality product anymore, just apple juice concentrate with some elderberry. I've moved on and have been trying alternate brands. It's a shame. Fortunately the local Vitamin Shoppe store took back my last order with no hassle when I discovered the switch. Sep 30, 2013

This along with elderberry capsules and echinacea capsules, I believe thwarted off a possible sore throat and maybe even the flue I felt coming on. This with water and maple syrup just tastes great too. I was also taking Honey Gardens Apiaries Apitherapy Honey, Organic Elderberry Syrup, great stuff and tastey. Basically I was mega dosing on elderberry. I plan on planting some of these bushes this Spring. Mar 15, 2013

Anyone else check their ingredients lately????? Feb 11, 2013

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. Feb 21, 2013

This issue seems less like a Vitamin Shoppe issue than the manufacturer issue, though I have requested that VS look into. However, if you look at other sites (i.e., Natural Sources, Amazon, etc) it lists the product info the same as VS (i.e., no preservatives, etc). Either the product info on the websites are incorrect or the ingredient label on the bottle is incorrect. Either way, not good and difficult to get accurate information on this. BTW, do the ingredients on your bottle label indicate sodium benzoate, etc. or only elderberry concentrate? Feb 21, 2013
                                                                          Kathryn B: Yes, the "other ingredients" list the apple, etc. concentrates as well as the sodium benzoate, citric acid, etc. It also says "manufactured for" Natural Sources. Maybe it's better to find one that is "manufactured by" rather than "manufactured for" another company. Feb 21, 2013

We have never had any problems with Natural Sources Elderberry Concentrate. We use it to suppliment local berries in wine, syrup and cough drops. Our yeast is very discriminating and would never work with sodium benzoate?. Actually citric acid is not a preservative in the "health food nut" scence. Feb 18, 2013

My first several bottles of this product also listed only Elderberry Juice concentrate. The last few bottles I have purchased however, through VS online as well as what was in the VS store, have the other ingredients listed, yet is advertised (on the website of VS and other online sellers) still as only Elderberry Juice concentrate. I do not like ingesting preservatives (when I am aware of them) nor do I like to ingest grape and/or apple juice concentrates that are not organic as they may have high concentrations of pesticides. My frustration is really more in the fact that this company is falsely advertising a product. Since you have had no problems with your yeast, it's possible (?) that your bottles are still in fact, "pure" (i.e., you still have the "old" product without the additional ingredients). In any case, this has been very confusing (even to the folks in the VS store who I have asked ) and this manufacturer has not been forthcoming in clarifying this issue (and I have left several messages with Natural Sources.) However, I would recommend that you check the ingredients on future bottles that you purchase. Feb 19, 2013

I have also used this product since last fall and I agree, it has helped me stay healthy while others around me have gotten sick. However, I am quite sure that when I first started buying this product, I had checked the ingredients listed on the bottle and it did not list the ingredients that the most recent bottles have (i.e., sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate, grape and apple juice.) I do not like taking the preservatives nor do I want to ingest non-organic grape or apple juice as both of these products can carry high concentrations of pesticides. Even though it's a tablespoon twice a day, I feel that the company that makes this product is falsely advertising it. (I have since found another manufacturer of elderberry concentrate and according to their ingredient list (or so they say) does not have preservatives. (Can't remember the name, but I got it at Vitamin Shoppe.) Feb 19, 2013
                                                                          Susan R: That is mysterious because I just checked the last 2 bottles that I bought and it just says elderberry juice concentrate. I'm going to call the company and see what's up with that. Feb 18, 2013

(It was difficult to even get contact info for this company; they don't have website.) I recently ordered 2 bottles online and both had the "new" ingredients (apple and grape juice concentrate, as well as sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate). Then I went to my local Vitamin Shoppe store last week, and the bottles they had on the shelf all listed the "new" ingredients. The product info on the website clearly states "no preservatives." I have spoken to a rep at Vitamin Shoppe and asked them to investigate this (haven't heard back from VS) as well as put complaint on the NY Consumer Complaint website. Quite frustrating! Let me know what you find out. Feb 19, 2013

                                                                          We use 1 teaspoon every day. 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.

If someone is sick, then they get that dose 3-4 times daily. We mix with water. We found that 1 tablespoon mixes well with about 4 oz. of water. Hope this helps! Jan 22, 2013

                                                                          To get the full effect I take 1 tablespoon in the morning and one before I go to bed at night. This is great when you feel a cold coming and also helps soothe a sore throat.
