  • One of the western world's most important herbals

  • 800 mg of pure elderberry (Sambucus nigra) in every teaspoon!

The legendary use of black elderberry (Sambucus nigra) dates back to Medieval Europe. It's mentioned in Shakespeare and even in the texts of Hippocrates himself. Still in common use today, elderberry could be considered one of the western world's most important and enduring herbals.

The modern use of elderberry centers on its benefits for the immune system, and it is commonly employed specifically for seasonal wellness.* Elderberries are a source of bioflavonoids and antioxidant phytonutrients known to support natural defenses.* Swanson Ultra Elderberry Extract Syrup is our modern version of this ancient herbal wonder. It's made with the highest quality purified water and 800 mg of pure elderberry plus elder flowers and red raspberry leaf in every 1-teaspoon serving. The pleasant berry flavor makes it go down easy and the liquid form means it goes to work fast to produce rapid results.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Product change I have been using this product for 5 years but they have recently changed the formula and is not effective. I love Swanson but they really need to fix this previously wonderful product. I tell everyone about the company and products. Please swanson make this right! Thanks

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I had purchased elderberry extract several times before from Swanson's. This is not the product I was expecting . Does not taste like elderberry. Is not rich in flavonoids. In short I am looking for a replacement with real elderberry flavonoids in larger quantities.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Caution - not pure elderberry If you are looking for elderberry extract, this product is not for you. It is mixed with raspberry extract. If that is what you are looking for that is great. I was not and expected 100% elderberry using a glycerin extract. Read your labels. This was offered as a replacement for one I had been ordering byt that was discontinued.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst value This never worked for me as well as I expected but I bought it every winter, trusting that being called Swanson Ultra, that it was the best elderberry product that they sold. Not so. it is very weak in strength. It has less than one gram of elderberry per teaspoon. What I buy now has 5 grams of elderberry per teaspoon, and it actually is effective. Research all the elderberry liquids that Swanson sells. You will find what I now buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We Like It We have used 2 or 3 different brands of elderberry syrup. Some are too sweet; some are too bitter; most are more expensive. Swanson's Elderberry Extract Syrup has a very good taste and it does not contain high fructose corn syrup. As with many other supplements, you might not ever know if it is really doing any good. But we trust that this Swanson product is helping us to stay healthy. Thanks, Swanson.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from tastes terrible!!!!!!!! This is the absolute worst I have ever tasted. To the point of gagging. Ihave no idea if it is effective because I CAN NOT take it. HORRIBLE. I'll stay with Sambucol.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can;t Get Cap Off I like this product, but it comes with a child proof cap that is very difficult to remove, even though I'm an adult. Why do they do this?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Marginal I did not like the taste of this product -- I use it mostly over yoghurt for breakfast. I prefer the Natural Elderberry Concentrate from Natural Sources (NLS 002 for the 16 oz bottle, NLS013 for the 8 oz). It seems to have a truer taste.

I've tried other brands that cost a lot more...for my money & well being...Swanson's is the BEST. Best product and best price and fast delivery. I purchase at least 2 at a time, one for me and sometimes one to share.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Elderberry Extract Syrup 100% Natural This product does't seem as potent and effective as the Sambucol band. I will return to Sambucol.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not what I expected I thought I'd try this but I expected a better elderberry product. I prefer plain elderberry without anything else added.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so smooth This is my first elderberry product. I have relied on local elderberries in the mountains and turned them into pancake syrup. I'm getting older and making syrup is a bit of work. This syrup is tasty and easily digested.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I can find This syrup does just as it should do and is good in our morning smoothie.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Contains glycerin I don't know if this product has changed or if I mistakenly bought the wrong product. Previous elderberry extract did NOT contain glycerin. We were disappointed in the texture. It is slimy and unpleasant, although the flavor itself is still good.
