          Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Sambucus Black Elderberry - 8 Fluid Ounces Liquid:

          I kept coming down with colds so I went to my doctor. In my 10 years of going to him he had never recommended this for treating colds before. He suggested this and I believe it works wonders. I take 1 teaspoon twice a day for 5 days at the start of a cold. Do you research online you will discover its many benefits. I hated the taste at first but after a few days I got used to it. Now I even like it.

          Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Sambucus Black Elderberry - 8 Fluid Ounces Liquid:

          Sambucus is a syrup made from the black elderberry plant. At this point, many studies have been done supporting its immune-enhancing properties. If I sense a cold or flu coming on I begin taking Sambucus as directed. I usually do not even get sick. If I do, it is very light and goes away quickly. I have not bee seriously ill with a cold or flu in the 5+ years I have been taking Black Elderberry Extract. Additionally, Sambucus tastes good and has a pleasant texture.

                Sambucus Black Elderberry Extract Syrup

                Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Sambucus Black Elderberry - 8 Fluid Ounces Liquid:

                Sambucus Black Elderberry did the job that I wanted and the price was the lowest I've ever seen for Black Elderberry. A bottle will last almost a month and with the sale price I saved $6 a bottle. The thing I didn't like was the taste, I'll pay $6 more for something that I look forward to in the morning. I was using Sambucol Black Elderberry syrup before using the "Sambucus Black Elderberry". Sambucol taste's very good and I looked forward to drinking it every day.

                Good product however it does not taste as good as the NOW Foods brand but costs about half as much.

                Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Sambucus Black Elderberry - 8 Fluid Ounces Liquid:

                Wow. I take this when I feel a cold coming on and it reduces severity of illness. That's the only time I can stomach the 2 tablespoons. Its like prune juice from H E double hockey sticks! The syrup though seems to be the most effective way to take it though, I don't even mess with the tablets and lozenges. Feel Better and Take Care!

                Darnit, this stuff seems to work

                By Non-pharmaceutical remedy seeker

                from Stamford CT

                Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Sambucus Black Elderberry - 8 Fluid Ounces Liquid:

                I've used this and Sambucol brand, and both are surprisingly effective. Maybe it's the power of suggestion, but whatever it is, I seem to be getting sick less often and for much shorter milder durations. If I'm the slightest bit rundown, have a scratchy/sore throat or post-nasal drip starting up, I take a large spoonful. I do this every day (sometimes twice a day) until the symptoms have gone away. Works! Wish it were cheaper but hey, I'll buy it as long as it continues to do the trick.

                No sugar, great quality and value. Add your own Stevia to sweeten.

                Can children take this? I've used the Natures Way brand, which includes dosage for children, but this one doesn't.

                Is this supposed to be a dark brownish color? I've tried other products where it is a dark purplish color. Is this normal?
                A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Feb 4, 2015
                Best Answer: The color does indeed present as a thick "brownish" liquid, with some purplish hues around the edges if poured onto a spoon. The brownish darkening may be due to effects of air once the bottle is opened. My feeling base on personal experience is that the product is safe to use.

                is this product kosher? If so, under what supervision?
                Jessica S on Jan 8, 2015
                Best Answer: According to my cancer-care specialist (an MD with a PhD in Biochemistry), this product is absolutely safe taken as directed. I take one dose daily during the winter months, and if I feel cold symptoms coming on, I take 3 doses a day (as directed on the bottle). Have not had a full-on cold in 3 years following this regimen. I recommend it wholeheartedly.
