Sambucol Immune System Support

It has officially been a month now and I have not caught any of the colds or coughs from all the sick people I have been around. Not that I have been trying to get sick on purpose or anything, but as a mom of very young children-taking them to the park, playdates and even the store-is nothing but a germ fest in the making. They touch everything, they lick everything, and then they lick me. Yes, I said lick. I wish Little Dude kissed more, but for now he is into licking my arm. NICE.

Anywho, I was offered a chance to try out Sambucol, a black elderberry immune system support supplement, and with all the germs I encounter everyday, I figured, what they hey, it can't hurt to try!

Well, I am very pleased to say that I have not caught anything yet, even though I have been around a lot of sick people. It is impossible to say that it was the Sambucol that helped, since I can't really measure how weak my immunity was before I took it, or how exposed I really was to all those sick kids and family members I have been around, but I can say that since starting the supplements I have felt a boost to my overall energy, which I am sure directly impacts the strength of my immune system.

Sambucol is a natural black elderberry supplement developed by a virologist and it is recommended to be of great help if you take it when you have the flu! I haven't been able to test this out (hopefully, I won't be able to) but should I catch the flu, I will let you know if Sambucol helps.

Sambucol's unique formulation and extraction process preserves and maximizes the naturally occurring health benefits of the berry. As a potent antioxidant, black elderberries have been used to traditionally combat illness since ancient times and have twice the natural antioxidant capacity of blueberries and significantly more than cranberries.

Who knew? I sure am glad I found out!Sambucol also has a kids formula too, so for your little ones ages 2 and up over at day care, or for all those winter time playdates, you can give their little immune systems a great boost too!

My only complaint is that it is a little bitter, with that sorta bitter after taste like eating a lemon. But really, overall, a little bitter aftertaste that quickly washes away with some water is well worth it if it keeps you from catching a cold, cough, or even the flu!

You can buy Sambucol over the counter at any pharmacy or health food store where you get cold medicines and the suggested retail prices is $14.99/4 ounce bottle.

Want to try it FOR FREE? Then Check out the website, leave a comment here or email me at coordinatedchaos@yahoo.com about which product you think you would like trying and you will be entered to win a "Mommy Immune Boosting Basket" full of great Sambucol products for you and your kids!

I'd be very interested in the one you reviewed. With two big boys and a tiny boy we're exposed to germs often and I'd like to get everyone in the house healthy enough not to catch every little thing that comes our way.

The Sambucol Cold & Flu tablets sounds interesting. I have to wonder at the taste since you have to dissolve them in your mouth, but if they work for the flu that would be great =)

I love a product like this that isn't made from suspect or artificial ingredients. We have elderberry trees growing all over our yard - but they're the red variety, not much good for eating. :)

The product I'm most interested in trying is Sambucol for Kids.

Elderberry is not only valuable for its antioxidant potential, it has also exhibited particular health benefits that are substantiated in studies in the areas of immune support, physical stress, cardiovascular support and healthy inflammation response.
