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

        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.

              Sambucus Black Elderberry Extract Syrup

              By Woody46

              from East Bethel MN

              Verified Reviewer

              Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Sambucus Black Elderberry Extract - 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.

              Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Sambucus Black Elderberry Extract - 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 Extract - 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.

              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 sambucus Nigra (good) or sambucus ebulus?
              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.
