    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.

    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.

    It worked great - glad to learn about it.

    By Health-nut

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

    I was feeling terrible, was getting hammered bad by either the flu, or very bad cold, don't know which. I went to the local vitamin shoppe it hopes of a remedy. I asked a store assistant if he heard of anything that worked for the flu that people swear by. He told me his store manager has a weak immune system, and swears by Sambucus, she takes a lot of it whenever she starts to feel sick. So I decided to give it a try. The directions say mix two teaspoons with water. I tried that at first, and no it didn't taste great, but I did not find it to be horrible tasting either. I noticed an improvement, so decided to take some more. So added a couple of table spoons to red grapefruit juice. I found it improved the taste. By the next morning I was much improved, felt just a little sick. A vast improvement. I read up on it, and was impresses by what I read. I can't compare it to other brands, but I do know this helped my feel much better within a reasonable length of time. I felt so excited about learning something that worked well for the flu, I decided to post this review to let others know also.

    Vitamin Shoppe Brand Sambucus

    By Libby

    from Michigan

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

    I have been using the VS brand elderberry Sambucus for the past 6 years. Upon researching other brands, I found that they sweeten their elderberry with sugars and other ingredients such as apples, cheeries, grapes, etc. I like the VS brand because it is just what it says; elderberries. In the time that I have been taking the Sambucus, I have not had a cold or the flu; and I am a teacher. During the late fall and winter months, I take a faithful 1-3 doses a day and continuing on with 1 dose a day 3-5 days a week during the late spring, summer and early fall to keep my immune built up. The taste is not great.....but I can handle it. I do take it straight followed by a glass of water. I hope that the Vitamin Shoppe brand of Sambucus does not change their formula and keeps it as is....elderberry! I recommend this brand to people that I meet in public, my school parents and anyone else that will listen.

      Compared to another brand of Elderberry syrup, this tastes quite horrible. Also, I was not aware that it has to be mixed with water whereas the other brand I can simply take a does via the included dose cup.

      Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Sambucus Black Elderberry Extract - 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.

      • Daily For Immune Support

      Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Sambucus Black Elderberry Extract - 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.

      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!

      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.

      Linda T on Feb 1, 2016
      Best Answer: The label lists only Sambucus Nigra. It lists 24 servings and one serving is 2 teaspoons (4000 mg). The only other ingredients listed are vegetable glycerin and deionized water. We love this product. David--Old Bethpage NY

      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.
