An Easy Way To Give Your Immune System a Natural Boost with Sambucol

If this was a typical year, we would be getting ready to head back to school, and starting to boost our immune systems for the influx of germs. But really, there's nothing typical about this year, is there? Instead, we're doing what we can to stay healthy, and preparing ourselves for the unexpected...because the unexpected just keeps hitting us in 2020!

Health and wellness has always been a part of my family's daily routine. We eat a healthy diet, drink plenty of water, exercise daily, and (try to) get enough sleep each night. We also take vitamins and supplements each day to fill in any gaps. 

We haven't changed much in our wellness regimen this year, but our lifestyle sure has changed! Remote learning, cleaning our home and washing our hands more often, mandatory mask wearing, social distancing...every morning I wake up and think, "Is this really happening?!?"  Unfortunately, it is, and it has made me more focused on maintaining my family's good health. Thankfully, there's an easy way to boost our immune systems!

A few years ago, one of Liam's doctors recommended that we add black elderberry to his daily vitaimins and supplements. My mom, who is an herbalist, agreed. Black Elderberry is high in antioxidants, and has been used for thousands of years due to its health benefits. 

Sambucol®, the original Black Elderberry extract, is what I chose for Liam, and for my entire family! I chose Sambucol® Black Elderberry extract because it provides a strong - and NATURAL - immune support. Prior to this review, we had been taking Sambucol® Black Elderberry Immune Support Gummies and tried Sambucol® Black Elderberry syrup. The Daily Immune Drink Powder is new to us, and it's a keeper!

Sambucol Black Elderberry Immune Support

We chose Sambucol® Black Elderberry Immune Support Gummies for so many reasons! 

  • They can be used by adults and kids over the age of 4.
  • They offer natural immune support. We always try to choose natural products over anything else.
  • They are gluten, nut, soy, dairy, and egg free. (Perfect for my son who has Celiac Disease!)
  • They are sweetened with pure cane sugar (only 1 gram per gummy), and they don't have artificial colors or flavors in them.
  • They are convenient and easy to take!

Obviously, the gummies are the easiest way to give your immune system a boost! Liam, my (almost) 7 year old, who has Down syndrome, takes them immediately without a fight. He really seems to enjoy the flavor! BUT...Sambucol has other great Black Elderberry options, too! 

How To Boost Your Immune System

My husband was so excited about the Daily Immune Drink Powder, because he can quickly mix it into a bottle of water, and drink it on the go!


If you have picky kids with a sensitive palate, hiding the Sambucol Black Elderberry syrup in a smoothie works wonders! My husband has no problem taking the syrup alone, but the rest of us prefer the gummies, drink powder, or Black Elderberry smoothie!

Healthy Living

I put together this quick video to show you just how easy it is to take the gummies, use the drink powder, or make a 30-second black elderberry smoothie to boost your immune system. I truly debated remaking this video, but I'm always candid here, and opted for real life. And my real life includes messes, noise, horrible angles thanks to broken cell phone screens, and gagging kids. (Oh, just watch. Trust me!)

Strawberry Banana Black Elderberry Smoothie

  • About 8 large frozen strawberries
  • 1 banana 
  • 2 tsp Sambucol Black Elderberry syrup
  • A few kale leaves
  • Water

Make It:
  1. Put the strawberries, banana, Black Elderberry syrup, and kale in a blender.
  2. Top it with water, more ice, or a combination of both. (I use a Nutribullet, and have to add water to the fill line, but I always added a little bit of water when I made smoothies in a regular blender.)
  3. Blend and enjoy!

Sambucol Black Elderberry Gummies can be found at Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens, GNC, The Vitamin Shoppe, Ralphs, Vons, Safeway, and Kroger. The average retail price for a 30-count bottle of Sambucol Black Elderberry Gummies is $12.99, and a 60-count bottle is about $24.99. Find a store near you.

We are trying our hardest to maintain a proper health and wellness regimen during this very uncertain and stressful time. Adding black elderberry to our daily routine is such an easy way to naturally support our immune systems. Here's to a successful - and hopefully UNEVENTFUL - year ahead!
