What happens when the kids get sick? Oh yeah...aside from the world stopping so Mommy can make it all better?
And what happens when Mommy gets sick? Oh yeah...Mommy's aren't supposed to get sick! And when we do, we have to drag our unappy rumps out of bed to make lunches, kiss boo boos, find dollies, and make dinner.
Just don't get me started on what happens when daddy gets sick. ;)
The bottom line is that super hero moms like us need a little bit of extra immune support when it comes to keeping healthy. We make the world go 'round, after all, and Sambucol with natural black elderberry is here to help.
I'm a big fan of homeopathic remedies, and black elderberry has a long history of being relied upon for the treatment of colds, flu, burns, fever, and everything in between from the plague to toothaches. Medicinal uses have even been traced back to prehistoric times, which says a lot to me.
And with health buzzwords like "antioxidants" showing up in ads for juice commercials and more, it's important to point out that black elderberry beats out blueberries and cranberries hands down...and that's big news when it comes to immune support to help fight viruses.
We got to try Sambucol Original($14.99 for a 4 oz bottle), which was my favorite. It tastes good and I can vouch for the fact that I did not get sick once while I was downing my daily dosage, even though everyone else I knew was! I gave the Sambuxol for kids ($14.99 for a 4 oz bottle for kids ages 2-12) to my 3 year old nephew, and he was happy to munch on the tasty chewables. I wasn't too crazy about the Sambucol chewables ($14.99 for 30 tablets) for adults because they dried my mouth out for some crazy reason.
The Sambucol products are available nationwide health food stores, such as Vitamin Shoppe, pharmacy chains like Rite Aid, Walgreens, and CVS and online at drugstore.com.
So who wants an immune boost of their own? One lucky reader gets to win a gift bag with all three of the Sambucol products reviewed here. Just leave me a comment telling me how your family handled it the last time you got sick and you are entered!
