5.0 - THE best product in my home
THE best product in my home! We've used Wellness Formula for over 15 years. At the first sign of a cold, we take six capsules and go to bed. 95% of the time we wake up feeling perfect! The other 5% of the time we continue for another dose or two and we're good as new. Have it handy when a cold comes on and dose immediately! It's also good for preventative measures, too! Be sure and always buy the CAPSULES, not the tablets. The tablets are very difficult to swallow and they smell so bad! This product does contain garlic so you will burp a bit. It's not super smelly!
5.0 - Great Supplement for Health!
Take these for a week when cold symptoms start! You will start feeling better within a few days! Read dosage on back and take as much as you feel nessecary
5.0 - Great stuff
Amazing. Has squelched three incipient colds really quickly.
5.0 - Naturally Great!
Have used this for years vs. OTC cold medications. Getting the sniffles, follow the directions and you will be glad you did.
5.0 - This stuff is where it's at. I am a ...
This stuff is where it's at. I am a teacher, and I take one of these every day with my regular vitamins. I think it really helps to keep me from getting sick as often. It tastes nasty--even though it's in a pill, I can still taste it. I have to take it with juice to mask the taste of the pill. But totally worth it. When I do feel myself coming down with a cold, I pop 6 in one day (as per the directions) and it helps to shorten the life of the cold, and make it less intense. It really works.
5.0 - Great!
They help a lot with my energy leves and with my health in general. It have kept me from getting any colds side I being taking them
5.0 - BETTER THAN FLU SHOTS!
I've been using this product for almost a year and it has kept me from having colds or flu. I take a daily protective dose of 2 capsules. I use this in conjunction with Natural Factors Anti-V Formula, which I take as soon as I feel a cold coming on. Both are excellent natural products which I highly recommend.
5.0 - saved me from so many almost colds
This formula is awesome. Take it immediately when you start to feel the beginnings of illness and it works like a charm!
4.0 - Heard from a friend this would ward off flu and ...
Heard from a friend this would ward off flu and colds. You need to take it before you are sick so I tried and it did help put one on delay.
5.0 - Five Stars
I take these when traveling or around lots of children. Haven't had a cold all winter!
5.0 - The BEST
The BEST cold prevention/minimalization product!
4.0 - Wellness Formula Works
If you take the recommended dose Wellness Formula can stop a cold from developing or shorten the duration of an existing cold/flu.
5.0 - The best health product I own
The best health product I own. Stops colds dead in their tracks when taken at the 'first sign of imbalance.'
5.0 - Tried this for the first time last month on a ...
Tried this for the first time last month on a friend's recommendation. This stuff works really well! My usual 2 week long cold was knocked out in 5 days! You do have to take a lot of it and it's not cheap, but I think it's worth the money to get well so much quicker.
5.0 - A must take every day
Can't live without my wellness formula. I've been taking it for over a year and I have cut down my sick time so significantly and quality of my life improved tremendously. I have a very low immune system and prone to just about any little weather change or hormonal imbalance and I catch colds, flu, sinus infections, chest infections - you name it! Wellness keeps me in check and in balance resulting in a great healthy body. I swear by it.
5.0 - GREAT PRODUCT! Initially purchased at a local health food ...
GREAT PRODUCT! Initially purchased at a local health food store from an employee recommendation for cold/flu. Found it here on Amazon much cheaper. Always have some on hand.
5.0 - Cures a Common Cold
I highly recommend this product. My office manager has it on hand for the day you get to work and you feel a cold coming on. Take as directed and after a couple hours the sniffles are gone.
5.0 - I know 6 capsules seems like a lot
I always keep a bottle of Wellness Formula handy so I can take it as soon as I get that feeling of a cold coming on. When taken as directed it is very effective, just don't wait until you're really sick to start taking it! The key is to take it with that first sneeze or scratchy throat. And take it as frequently as directed and as much as directed. I know 6 capsules seems like a lot, but it's just the right amount to keep you well. I find I need to take it with food and sit up for a while when I take it or I get a stomach ache. But that's all. No side effects that I could tell.
5.0 - This has become a family staple
We have been using this product for many years and it has become a staple. If one of us begins to feel run down, we use this to boost the immune system. I take this along on trips to avoid the colds and viral infections that seem to accompany travel. We get very few colds around our house because we combat any signs of a cold by starting the Wellness Formula regimen -- and if we don't catch it soon enough, Wellness Formula helps us recover more quickly. I was surprised that I got a better deal on Amazon than at our local stores. I initially looked for this on Amazon to send to our daughter at college.
5.0 - Great supplement
Recommend this supplement to anyone who has a comprised immune system. I have been taking them for the last year and have stayed healthy, no colds which I would normally get 2-3 per year. Still get slight allergy issues but no more sinus infections requiring antibiotics.
5.0 - Great for Fighting Colds
I purchase the Wellness Formula supplements because my sister and her husband swear by them. The package arrived timely, the price is excellent. I'm hoping the wellness said formula will keep me cold free thru the winter.
5.0 - LOVE IT!!!
Love! I work with kids 3-12 year olds and haven’t gotten sick since I’ve been taking this! Before I was taking this, I got strep and the cold probably about 10 times within 6 months! Definitely recommend!
5.0 - Great for everyday immune support!
Excellent formula! I take 2 pills everyday for immune support and if I feel a cold coming on, I take 2 more in the evening. Haven't had a cold since I purchased this!
5.0 - Works great!
This product is simply amazing!! I've been taking it several years now at the first symptom of a cold. It seems to work as I barely get sick now. I have to warn you thought - it does leave a little bit of the nasty taste in my mouth if I take these on an empty stomach. I just have to make sure to take these with meals. Otherwise, this herbal formula works like a charm!
4.0 - SHORTEST COLD EVER!
I was recently scheduled for surgery and a cold is something they don't want you to have at surgery time. I pulled out this wellness formula and started taking it. I do believe it was my shortest cold ever and I was good to go for surgery!
4.0 - Always have these on hand
Been taking these for years when I feel a cold coming on. If you catch it early enough, you can stop the cold from developing or getting worse.
5.0 - It helps me recover quicker than without taking and feel like having more energy
My boss first introduced me for immune system 2 years ago when I cauch cold. It helps me recover quicker than without taking and feel like having more energy. I'm not much into health stuff but my husband is. Now he loves this supplement too. Combining with other supplement he take this everyday. He also feed me same things he take. Before everyday I was tired and had headaches make me feel lazy t do anything. But now I feel so much energized able to finish daily routine without problems. I definitely keep buying for both of us. It is life changer for me.
5.0 - very good when used just before a cold comes on
Used this company for a long time, very good when used just before a cold comes on.....
5.0 - Love it and it really works
This stuff is the BOMB! Totally kicks a colds BUTT! Love it and it really works!
5.0 - And this is the best price available
I have found that, taken at the first sign of a cold and as directed, this product works every time. And this is the best price available.
5.0 - Start taking this the moment you feel a cold or ...
Start taking this the moment you feel a cold or flu coming on, and most of the time you won't get sick, even when the rest of the household does. Smells awful--make sure you get the caps and not the pills.
5.0 - This is the BEST stuff!
This is the BEST stuff!! If I feel a slight sore throat, cold, or flu coming on I take 3 tablets morning and evening. I've found it best to take a maintenance dose in the winter of 2 tablets once a day. It totally boosts my immune system so I rarely, if ever, get sick. I've recommended it to many people and they all have the same positive results. It's on my "Subscribe and Save" list as I can't live without it, and the Amazon price is the best!
5.0 - This really works to keep the colds away. If ...
This really works to keep the colds away. If you take it at the first tickle of a cold. Don't wait.
5.0 - Five Stars
Been using this product for a number of years. Very seldom do I get a cold.
5.0 - Pretty sure it works
For the past 4 years around the end of January and into February I would catch the latest variant of flu, cold, sniffles, chest cold or whatever happened to be floating by my terrible immune system. It seemed like it would start as allergies and then a virus would find me and send me off the edge. I would usually be home with a fever and feeling like death for 2 to 4 weeks. I tried Airborne and the like last year but it didn't do any good.
5.0 - Really prevents the beginning cold.
Helps me to keep colds away! If I feel I am getting sick I take this 5-6 a day and it sems like no more symptoms. Usually I take 1-2 daily
5.0 - Buying Nothing Else
I have tried a variety of different products to boost my immune system. I suffered from chronic sinus infections for years and since I have been taking these I haven't even got a cold. BUying this product for life.
5.0 - Enormous pills with good ingredients
Amazon has a great price on these. I've been taking these off and on for the last couple of years and they seem to help me get over an illness quicker (could be psychological, but research shows that most of the ingredients are known to help with fighting the common cold, such as Vitamin C, etc.). Be forewarned that these are giant pills (about 3/4" to 1" long) and they are very fragrant (to me it is like an olive smell). I am a repeat customer for these.
5.0 - Five Stars
This is a staple at our house. We start taking them whenever a cold is trying to catch us.
5.0 - Five Stars
A must have for every family during the cold and flu season!
5.0 - Great Deterrent for Cold/Flu Misery
Very helpful and easy to take, with the first sign of possible cold or flu - I take the recommended dose for several days and often do not come down with the threatened misery as I do when not taking it. During the cold/flu season, I take one a day - and have been for many years. I swear by this product. Best if taking it regularly on the smallest dose recommended, and immediately increase to the highest dose recommended when symptoms warn of oncoming sore throat, itching ears, aches and common cold and flu symptoms.
5.0 - PERFECT!! I have Never had a product work ...
PERFECT!! I have Never had a product work in 24 hours before. It is RARE for it to take 48 hours. I don't know another product that will END flue, cold, etc. WITH SUCH SPEED!! And they advertise PLENTY (but you never see ads for WELLNESS, and IT does work!!)
5.0 - Great preventative remedy
When I feel a cold coming on I take these as directed and have warded off the cold every time. Take them asap after the onset of early symptoms such as scratchy throat, fatigue, sneezing, etc., and you'll be so relieved to wake up symptom free. Sometimes you need a few doses to keep the cold from coming on. Together with Echinacea tea it's a winning combination.
5.0 - Wellness capsules are super helpful for making colds go away or at least less nasty
This is an awesome product. The capsule vesion is much better if you have a problem with the vitamin over smell or delicate tummy. I love the caps for these 2 reasons. If you start to feel a cold come on take extra for several days and it usually makes it go away if got quick enough or keep taking and will make the problem much less symptomatic. They work great for me swear by them. Also use one cap a day like a muli vitamin sometimes. Works on other things than cold issues but not quite as well. If i go visiting and some one has a cold i go home and start taking a preventative dose right away almost always works for me. Great stuff!
5.0 - Great at keeping colds from fully developing.
This works great at keeping a cold at bay or lessening the overall severity. I start taking as soon as I start to feel the slightest bit off and it has completely worked for me. It doesn't work if you don't start taking early enough. Because it is herbal, you have to take a lot of capsules every few hours. I can always tell when it is getting to be time to take another dose. I have found that I need to eat something with the capsules or else my stomach bothers me. A few crackers with each dose does the trick.
5.0 - Best product I have ever used to ward off a ...
Best product I have ever used to ward off a cold or illness when I first start to feel one coming on. We have been using it for about 8 years now and helps every time!
5.0 - but work great.
Use this in combo with my Emergency every time I feel a cold coming on. Very large pills and they smell awful and taste the same if they sit in your mouth too ling, but work great.
5.0 - A great blend of supplements.
This was recommend to me by a good friend who is a vitamin freak. These are an excellent blend of nutrients. I use it as a multi-vite and triple up if I feel a cold coming on. I do other specific supplements, and this is a great basic variety. It has so many things that most standard multi-vites don't do. It is a little smelly, but I don't let that bother me. They put a lot of good stuff in one pill. They are a reasonable size to swallow too.
5.0 - I felt like complete and utter crap Saturday
So I bought some of this from my local health food store upon their recommendation 3 days ago for a VERY severe cold that came on very quickly. Symptoms were fever, lethargy and very thick bright yellow nasal discharge. I wasn't feeling well on Friday, I felt like complete and utter crap Saturday. I started taking 3 pills, every three hours without fail on Saturday. By Saturday evening I noticed I was feeling a little bit better with every dose. By Sunday, I was feeling a WHOLE lot better but still sick. By this time I was also starting to get a congested cough which is typical. Here it is Monday, and though I called in to work today I must say I feel close to 100%. The cough would normally grab hold and not let go, is not that bad. Still a bit congested. But I *feel* good and can honestly say I am no longer sick.
5.0 - It works for me
I have used this for many years in cold and flu season and I can feel the difference quickly when I feel symptoms. Use as directed. A lot to swallow, but effective.
5.0 - I take this every day. Haven't been sick for over 12 months
After a horrible cold/sinus infection that lasted about 3 weeks, I decided to try and be a little more proactive. I found this on Amazon, and have been taking it every day since. My doctor says that most people get about 4 colds a year, and since taking this, i haven't gotten one. I'm not sure if it's coincidence, or if this really helps - but i'm not about to stop taking it and take chances.
5.0 - Works like magic.
Start this as soon as you find yourself thinking "I feel less than stellar; I wonder if I'm coming down with something?" It blasts everything from flu to strep throat right out of the arena. My husband and I swear by it. The only times it's failed to drive off whatever bug assails us is when we've either let the crud get too much of a toehold first or let ourselves get run down. Even then, it shortens the length of our colds, flu, or whatever by days. Expensive, but worth every penny. Vital to keep on hand during flu season!
5.0 - Miracle worker
This is the most wonderful stuff! Use it at the very first sign of a cold or flu & often you can stop it in it's tracks. Originally heard about it from a Barber friend and many of his customers & staff. I have also told many of my friends who now also swear by it. This Wellness Formula is amazing! Buying it online from Amazon.com let me buy more than twice the capsules for less than 1/2 the price of the local health food store!
5.0 - Take this at first signs of feeling run down from stress
I was recommended these many years ago by a health food store. Since then, I've even given them as Christmas gifts. My gifted friends and family swear by these, too. Whenever I start getting run down from my stress-filled job, I start taking them and then, when I feel better, I taper back off. They're the best for a flu or cold. Get them and try them. You won't regret it! Money well spent and best deals through Amazon.
5.0 - used it for many years and I highly recommend it during cold season
used it for many years and I highly recommend it during cold season. Even my kids and my employees have started using it.
5.0 - EXCELLENT EXCELLENT PRODUCT
This is a staple in my medicine chest. At the very first sign of a cold etc, I start taking these and they "nip it in the bud". I now have all three of our adult children asking for them when they start to get sick. It shortens the duration and the severity of a cold or flu.
5.0 - aches and flu like symptoms. Also even after the onset of an ...
This wellness formula actually works and has rescued me from colds, aches and flu like symptoms. Also even after the onset of an imbalance, it still can speed up recovery to being in sync again..
5.0 - I always take Wellness Formula to keep me healthy. ...
I always take Wellness Formula to keep me healthy. If I feel a cold or sore throat coming on, I double up on Wellness and the next day I am back to normal. Only vitamin I take.
5.0 - Great Wellness Product
I rely heavily on this product to keep me healthy during cold season. Source Naturals always uses high quality herbs and in great ratios.
5.0 - ...
It helped me overcome my serious cold and cough problems. I've been taking these for two years now and works well
5.0 - A miracle in a bottle if you take them at first hint of symptoms
This stuff is amazing. Any sign of a cold or flu and I start popping these like candy. 80% of the time they seem to have taken care of my symptoms so that I don't get a full onset of a cold or flu. Of course these aren't miracle pills. If you take advanced precautions like doubling your dosage of vitamin C and take these vitamins with plenty of water, rest and reduce stress levels - you will have a fighting chance. Highly recommend this formulation, my family swears by it.
5.0 - Been relying on Wellness for about 25 years now!
A friend recommended Wellness to me some 25 years ago. I have depended on it to keep me flu free, cold free, healthy in general, and it's a total success. I have gone through flu epidemics at work and I'm the one that doesn't catch it. I recommend Wellness every chance I get. It works for me.
5.0 - WELLNESS FORMULA
I am a casting director. I meet, interview and shake hands with up to approximately 150 people per day. There are just so many times you can use Purell after shaking hands. Wellness Formula is the best......every day I simply follow the directions and take it in every season. An especially fine product for people who are prone to continual colds and allergy complaints.
5.0 - Fantastic product.
AMAZING this saved me from being stuck in bed with a cold numerous times.
5.0 - Five Stars
I don`t know more what is cold.
5.0 - Five Stars
These always help me when I start catching a cold.
4.0 - It works!
This was recommended to me by my supervisor. I tried it last year and never caught a cold. (I work out side in the freezing wind and cold) I just got back from vacation, I've been using it and feel great!
5.0 - 100% worth it
The only thing that saves me and my family when we start to get a cold. Worth the investment.
5.0 - I highly recommend the product
My wife and I have been using this product for over a year and have found it to be quite effective at preventing the common cold if taken with the first indication of symptoms, and at reducing the severity of symptoms and the duration of the cold when taken after symptoms have set in. In reduced dosage it seems to help maintain general wellness. I highly recommend the product.
4.0 - Great Immune System, taste okay...
I love these, cause the ingredients, they really boost your immune up. I notice when my kids get sick, they recover fast or it doesn't hit them really bad. Also they are good for keeping the colds at bay. My kids are not too crazy about the taste. they are too big as well.
5.0 - wellness formula
great stuff. We all love it in our family. Just take it when you start to feel a cold coming on.
5.0 - Must have for every household
I recommend this product to everybody. It definitely reduces the symptoms of flu and colds.
5.0 - Works, and much cheaper than whole foods!
I have had a really terrible immune system in the past, and I normally get sick several times a cold/flu season, last year I was sick the ENTIRE month of December with a cold, then bronchitis, almost to the point of pneumonia. I started taking these because I have an in home child care now, and I really can't AFFORD to get sick. I cannot tell you how this nips the sickness right in the bud. I am so convinced that I have begun taking 2 tablets a day so I just don't even get the inkling of being sick. I begun having cold/flu symptoms last Friday, tired, achy, freezing cold and shivery, and I downed six of these. Within three hours I had terrible garlic breath, but lost the foggy, achy, chilled feeling and felt at 100%. I really believe these played a huge part in that. This is a great value, and less than half the price of Whole Foods. I subscribed so my husband can start taking them too. Excited about my new immune system!
5.0 - Five Stars
These are my wonder pills to fight colds and flu.
5.0 - The absolute best natural remedy I've ever used for any time I ...
The absolute best natural remedy I've ever used for any time I feel a cold coming on. I haven't gotten sick in over 5 years because of this stuff. I swear by it and recommended it to my whole family.
5.0 - Great product.
This product helps if you feel like you are coming down with cold symptoms. Also they give a maintenance dosage of 1-2 pills daily.
5.0 - Not a miracle drug, but darn close!
My go to pill whenever I do not feel great. If I feel any sickness coming on, mostly flu, cold, sore throat, allergies. I will amp up the amount of Wellness formula, instead of 2-4 pills a day, I take the recommended 6 pills every 3 hours and it knocks it right out. I usually end up with colds that last several weeks. I have always been like this since I can remember, I am 33 now. Since I discovered Wellness Formula my colds last no more than a day! I have turned several of my friends on to it as well. Almost half price on Amazon as opposed to locally!
5.0 - Awesome formula that works to prevent illness
I first used this formula when on vacation in Juneau AK and thought I was getting a cold. Bought it in small store on main street as recommended by sales clerk. It worked wonders. No cold, no symptoms by evening. My daughter was getting sick so I gave her some that I had just received from Amazon and she said it was a miracle formula. She is a sales person and has customers who have told her to use Source Naturals Wellness Formula Herbal Defense also as they swear by it.
5.0 - Don't need 6 like the instructions state
They are literally magic. I just start feeling a cold coming and take 2 or three and it instantly goes away. Don't need 6 like the instructions state.
5.0 - Best immune system support!
Every time I feel like I am coming down with a cold, I pop 3 of these 3 times a day and I feel better within 24 hours. The trick is to use them the second you feel under the weather and not when you already would need antibiotics. If you are prone to get sick more often, I recommend taking these on the daily.
5.0 - Amazing boost for immunity
Amazing boost for immunity. Take at first sign of scratchy throat, active lymph glands or other signs of starting to fight a cold/flu. Usually symptoms just go away! Even when you think it's too late to reverse it, it has worked on numerous occasions. My patients and I both have the same experience. Take 1 per day in cold/flu season to avoid getting sick. Take with food to avoid irritating your stomach in the longterm--- has a lot of Vit C and garlic---strong, but potent and natural, and best of all, EFFECTIVE stuff!
5.0 - helps with the crud
I start taking these when someone in our house starts to feel sick. It seems to help boost my immunity. I also take them whenever I am sick to help speed things up. I recently had a cold that was dragging on forever, and when I got these and started taking them, the recovery sped up very noticeably.
5.0 - CAN'T RECOMMEND THIS MORE - INCREDIBLE!
My daughter recommended this to me because I just couldn't get over a really bad cold - literally within a day, it was gone! It's a great one-a-day but if you feel something coming on or have something, take 3 - 3x a day with a little food. It's a miracle! wonderful wonderful and the seller shipped incredibly fast!
5.0 - Great supplement
Just about the only product that I noticed a positive difference when I took it; if you catch it early enough, it makes a cold go away or at least makes it much less severe.
5.0 - Great immune system booster
I haven't gotten a flu shot in two years, and have not gotten sick (not even a cold) since I started taking these. I usually take 4 capsules per day, and 6-8 on rare occasions when I feel I'm getting sick. A 6 capsule dose packs a mega dose of Vitamin C along with herbs and minerals that boost the immune system. I always make sure that I have a spare bottle at home and at work. I also know that Source Naturals has a great reputation in the supplement industry. I know this stuff works!
5.0 - Love the product
Love the product! On the first onset of illness I started taking for about a week and half. One I felt I was back to normal I continued to take fora week. Definitely felt a difference and shortened my cold.
5.0 - This really works
I have used this for 3 years whenever I am feeling off (like a cold might be coming on) with great success. No sick days
5.0 - Five Stars
I could not survive cold season with out Wellness.
5.0 - Best Immune Booster Ever!
I have absolutely sworn by this stuff for 20+ years now. And now I have my coworkers sold on it. Finally even sold my parents on it. Anytime a coworker or friend/family member around me is sick, I take it as a preventative measure. Or literally as soon as I start feeling something come on, like "out of the normal" tiredness, or the slightest sore throat, I immediately take it, then rest, then wake up feeling 100%! Works practically every time! WF has prevented me from getting so many colds over the years. I used to keep track of how many colds it has stopped me from getting, but I stopped counting after 25 times. Just know that WF is the best stuff out there! Wayyyy better than Emergen-C or AirBorne. It has the ingredients they have plus a lot more good immune-booster stuff!
5.0 - Fantastic Product!
Amazing product. I use it daily. Since I started using it, I've had no issues with colds or sickness. If I feel like something is coming on, I take the extreme dose and all is good. Great for flu season.
5.0 - A pharmacist introduced me to this product.
I used to get colds and flu multiple times per year. I have fibromyalgia, which involves the immune system being low. In the three years I have been taking this, I haven't had a cold or the flu.
5.0 - One of my go to supplements in the winter time ...
One of my go to supplements in the winter time for colds and fighting the flu. Contains elderberry extract which is essential in any wellness formula to battle viruses.
5.0 - Wellness Formula
My oldest son got me started on the Wellness Formula Herbal Defense Complex last fall when I came down with a terrible cold while on vacation. He told me to start taking the maximum recommended amount each day to help fight my cold symptoms & get well faster. I really think that taking the Wellness capsules seemed to help shorten the time it took me to get better from that cold. I have continued to take the daily recommended amount, along with my other daily vitamin supplements & prescription medicines, just to maintain better health. This June I got another cold and I increased the daily dosage to the maximum amount; this time the cold seemed to go away even faster than before! Hooray for Wellness Formula!!
5.0 - amazing. will cure any cold.
take as directed. may seem like a lot of pills for one day but will cure any cold. cold will be gone quickly.
5.0 - Five Stars
the only supplement I've taken that actually reverses cold symptoms.
5.0 - I find this to be amazing! I take 3 capsules two times a day ...
I find this to be amazing! I take 3 capsules two times a day for about 2-3 days when I feel a cold starting, and I never get that cold! The directions say you can take more if you'd like, but I haven't found it necessary. I can't rave about it enough!
5.0 - Nice wellness product
Have used these for many years. It was one of the only products that finally got rid of my horrible cold. I use it as daily wellness just so I don't get colds. Seems to work for me and I will stick with it until it doesn't.

5.0 - Great Price. When I start to feel a cold ...
Great Price. When I start to feel a cold starting (or just not feeling well in general), I take a bunch of these vitamins to boost my immune system. These vitamins have been working well for me for the past 5 years.
5.0 - Source Naturals Wellness Formula
Start taking these to prepare my immune system for the winter. Hopefully no colds this year.
5.0 - Almost a vacin!
Fabulous product! During all my live, I had problems with my immunity. After using Wellnes Formula, I feel better and more: I got no cold even my husband had to take antibiotics to overtake his. It worths each dollar!
5.0 - Results
Wellness formula works many of the times I've used it. Start feeling stuffy and I double up on capsules---next day I feel normal. However, when a cold strikes, its there and nothing seems to help, including the Wellness Formula.
5.0 - Preventative health care
This product was recvommended to us by our older son. He and his friends have had great success using it to combat the affects of flu,colds,etc.
5.0 - Works for me!
I've been using these wellness supplements for a few years now, and besides the terrible aftertaste I swear by their effectiveness. When everyone around me starts getting nasty colds I'm usually getting asked how i've not caught it yet. Not a cure all but they seem to really help me.
5.0 - Life saver!!! Must buy for traveling
They smell disgusting, but they will turn around a bad situation. Filled with tons of good stuff that can help lessen effects of a cold or prevent you from falling under.
5.0 - The wonder vitamin
I started using this after I got a slew of sicknesses earlier this year. I was hit with it all-- started with a cold, turned into a sinus infection, turned into bronchitis, then another sinus infection! April and May 2011 were consumed with sick for me. A friend of mine told me about Wellness Formula, so I started taking it to hopefully recover faster. (I was willing to try anything!) A serving size is 6 pills. When you see/smell these pills, swallowing 6 of them will appear impossible. I have yet to take 6 all at once. I just started taking one per day for a week, then two per day. I feel it really helped me recover from all my illnesses. Usually takes me a couple weeks to get over a sinus infection. After taking two per week I sprung back to life quicker than I ever have. Now I take one per day as a preventative, and if I feel icky I take two.
5.0 - Works to prevent and reduce colds!
This was recommended to me by a nurse when my wife had serious lung issues and I, who am in the public quite a bit, was in danger of catching my recurring and maddening seasonal cold. I have been taking it for a good ten months, taking a maintenance dosage just prior to my seasonal job and a full dosage when I feel that "scratch" at the back of my throat. I have yet to come down with a full-fledged cold. I may occasionally end up with draining sinuses and mild coughing sessions, but not a solid cold. As you can see by the capsule-count we order it in, it works for us; we hope it works for you.
5.0 - Good Product
Good product, I use it anytime I feel a cold coming on.
5.0 - Always Liked "Wellness" and this was a good price.
We've taken Wellness for years and they really do seem to cut the time of a cold or flu... There are two "types" of the same formula, tablet and capsule. The tablet are more concentrated, the capsule is easier to take. As the number you take is different, and as the number of "pills" in the various size bottles is different, you may have to do some math to find the best deal... In any case, which ever you prefer, we think it's a good idea to get them before you need them, just in case you get caught in a group of coughers and sneezers...
5.0 - Love these!
I swear by these vitamins. Any time that I feel a cold coming on, I start taking these vitamins and it is gone within a day or two. Love these!!!
5.0 - Five Stars
Stops a cold just as it gets started.
5.0 - Wellness Formula Works Great
My son plays basketball and volleyball at a highly competitive level, and takes four honors/AP classes at school. So he gets worn down, and he was always sick, always cold, cough...but since taking these he gets sick less than 1/2 as much as before, and when he does begin to feel something these wellness formula knock it out quickly. I also take them whenever I feel a cold coming on and boom, it's gone...
5.0 - Amazing stuff!
I purchased this product because I was feeling the first signs of a cold or flu coming on. I didn't take it until the next morning when I really had developed symptoms and felt like crap (body aches, headache, painful coughs, weakness and dizziness.) I then started taking it as the directions suggest for "imbalance": 3 tablets every 3 hours. When I woke the second morning, instead of feeling even worse, like my typical colds, I actually felt better. If I had been taking this all along, I'm sure I wouldn't have gotten sick at all. This is a must for your medicine cabinet and preventative routine! Very effective even at healing/curing!
5.0 - Great to keep colds and the flu to a minimum!
I love to take these when I start not feeling quite right. If I can do this right away it can stop, or at least shorten the time I'm down sick with the flu or cold. These Source Natural Wellness Capsule go down so easy since they are capsules, and I make sure to keep drinking water or tea for a while after I take them since it seems to help it process and absorb better. There are no side effects that come with it as in other cold medications so you won't get drowsy. I definitely can recommend Source Wellness Capsules for a natural way to try to keep from getting sick.
5.0 - This is the stuff that gets me through the winter ...
This is the stuff that gets me through the winter without getting run over by flu and cough and cold bugs ... a must in the apothecary!
5.0 - Excellent price and product, would buy again
Best product by far to fight colds/illness. Take as directed and you should be over the "icky" feeling in 2 days or less. Only really need to take 1-2 a day for maintenance if your diet isn't adequate. The price on here was excellent! For a 240 capsule bottle, Vitamin Shoppe usually sells for $40. Excellent price and product, would buy again.
5.0 - Five Stars
I recommend to all my patients in cold and flu season!!
5.0 - Perfect
I should give it ten stars. It beats colds and viruses for me perfectly. And everyone else in my house was sick--AND they didn't take it.
5.0 - Five Stars
use this for colds
5.0 - A great cold preventative
This product was introduced to me by my pastor's wife. She said to use it anytime you feel you could be getting sick. She takes it regularly during cold/flu season. I just use it when I get the sniffles. Works great to prevent colds and I'm sure it works on flu as well. If I get sick I am down for 3 weeks but now that I take Wellness Formula I rarely get a cold. The best price I have found has been Amazon.
5.0 - I started taking it in response to a weakened immune system and a bad head cold
I have used this product for a few years now (4) and would not want to be without it. I started taking it in response to a weakened immune system and a bad head cold.( a close friend recommended the product.) I followed the directions and took it 3 x a day (3 capsules at a time) Within 2 days, I was feeling significantly better and by the 3rd day I was completely well. I then started taking it to maintain a healthy immune system. (2 a day works well for me.) I have not been ill since I started taking this product 4 years ago. Because of my age (69) I do get an annual flu shot. I refuse to be without it. Works wonders for me.
5.0 - I took it when I was sick with a cold and it help me feel better sooner. I also took it as a prevention ...
Really works. I took it when I was sick with a cold and it help me feel better sooner. I also took it as a prevention when I felt a cold coming on and I didn't get sick...
4.0 - This works great for me, but capules stick in my lower throat
I've used Wellness for years, and I swear by it. I like to joke that it is my placebo of choice. When I feel the first hint of something coming on, I start taking it. I can usually stop the cold or flu in its tracks.
5.0 - Continues too be useful.
I have been using this product for a number of years and while it doesn't cure flu or colds, it does seem to consistently decrease the length and depth of misery for me compared to not taking it at all. It seems to more effective if taken at the first sign of affliction. It lasts a long time since I only use it for the first few days when I'm coming down with something.
5.0 - Prevent sickness!
If I take 6 of these 3 to 4 times per day when I feel a cold or flu coming, it will fight it off!
5.0 - HEAD THE FLUE OFF AT THE PASS
THE MOMENT I START TO FEEL LIKE I AM COMING DOWN WITH THE FLUE OR A COLD (ITCHY THROAT, HEADACHE, MALAISE, ETC.) I START TAKING THE WELLNESS FORMULA BY SOURCE NATURALS. IT WORKS EVERY TIME. I START TAKING 2 TABLETS EVERY 4 HOURS, AND USUALLY I NEVER GET A FULL BLOWN CASE OF THE FLUE. MY FRIENDS, WHO DON'T TAKE WELLNESSS, WILL SUFFER FOR 4-6 DAYS WITH SYMTOMS, WHILE I AM OVER IT IN A DAY OR TWO! I'VE BEEN USING THIS PRODUCT SINCE THE MID EIGHTIES,TRY IT AND SEE FOR YOURSELF.
5.0 - My friend recommended I start taking this about four months ago
My friend recommended I start taking this about four months ago, as I was getting sick left and right from stress and exposure to other people who were sick. It had been recommended to her by multiple coworkers. So I took two pills twice a day when I was fighting off a cold that I knew was coming on, and then two days later, the cold that was impending just never came. I've been taking two pills daily for four months now, and have not gotten sick once, even with a house full of people with colds.
5.0 - ... ideal to keep you healthy and if you feel like a cold or other illness is coming on
These vitamins are ideal to keep you healthy and if you feel like a cold or other illness is coming on. It shortens the life of a cold and has helped our family tremendously from getting sick when others were around us.

5.0 - I love this Wellness Formula!
I used to get sick at least once a month (terrible immune system!), but since taking 2 capsules daily - I rarely get sick! If I start to feel a cold coming on or everyone around me is sick, I load up on these pills to prevent that cold from developing. I recommend this formula to all my friends and family. No complaints whatsoever from me, very happy customer!
4.0 - My best friend during winter cold season
I buy these religiously during the winter season and (knocking on wood) so far so good -for years! I also buy them before traveling (especially air travel) and take the maintenance dosage to keep my immune system up. I highly recommend them. The only down side is having to take so many (minimum of 3 per day) and they are a bit pricey -but worth it.
5.0 - Great supplements!
As soon as someone in our house feels a cold coming on, we take this and oregano oil. It usually takes care of it before it becomes a major infection. If someone does really get sick, this helps get over it quicker. Great supplements!
5.0 - Miracle Cold Cure
This product is amazing. I highly recommend the capsule form but I wouldn't be without it.
5.0 - Love this stuff!
I always feel much better after taking this for a few days. I use it fro anything from colds to a preventive when I am stressed or under rested.

Really feel like taking this clears up cold symptoms within a day or two...I also take it daily as a multi-vitamin. Highly recommend adding this to your illness fighting regimen!
5.0 - ALWAYS KEEP ON HAND!
I always keep these on hand for when I get around someone sick to keep the germs away. Also use at first sign of a cold or not feeling well.
5.0 - cure all
I wasn't so much a believer but my cousin suggested these pills after I got a cold. I started taking them when I was already feeling better and then thought they didn't do much and stopped taking them altogether. Fast forward, and I caught a cold during the holidays. I figured it was worth a shot to hedge my bets and started taking the pills at the beginning of the worst day. What a difference! I felt SO much better by that evening and I felt much better throughout. Even though I'm taking half of the recommended dosage (6 pills every 3 hours seemed a bit overboard) and took only 3 pills in the evening and at night. If i forget to take them before bed, a nasty cough will wake me up and remind me to take my pills. I usually knock out and I noticed my cough is significantly reduced throughout the day if I remember to take them in the morning. They're incredible. I only took tylenol twice and have not had to take any other supplements or OTC cough syrup, etc... AMAZING.
5.0 - If you are like me and follow the holistic path to wellness
If you are like me and follow the holistic path to wellness, then you need to incorporate this into your every day regimen, especially during the cold/flu season. I have been taking this for years and have not gotten sick. It is amazing.
5.0 - Effective product
These really work. I have no idea why, but I took 1 a day religiously last year and never even got a cold. At the first sign of getting sick I increased the dose to 1 or 2 after every meal. DO NOT TAKE ON AN EMPTY STOMACH or you'll get sick. Well worth the price and I will continue to buy them and recommend to others.
5.0 - Nice
Been taking this stuff on and off for several years and I have to say I keep going back to it. It will not cure the common cold, but it will shorten the duration and intensity of the misery
5.0 - Keeps us well!
We have to work hard to keep in good Heath with two little ones in school and my partner working in a facility that has a lot of people coming in and out. We are exposed to everything. There is a huge difference in our ability to ward off the colds and germs between when we do take our wellness and when we don't . Love this product

Take to fend off flu/colds/viruses. I use it as soon as I feel I'm coming down with something; every four hours, three caps.
5.0 - Highly effective, with zero side effects
Competitively priced, with zero side effects. Also highly effective. They’re great for warding off an oncoming cold, or shortening one you already have.
5.0 - Game Changer! They reverse colds!
This pills are MAGIC! I gotten chills and the beginning stages of a sore throat at least three times this winter, at the start of my symptoms I took these and I didn't end up sick once! These really work.
4.0 - Good preventative
I take the Wellness Forumula daily in fall, winter, and spring. I have a young child in daycare and work in an office environment, and so I am constantly exposed to cold viruses. The Wellness Formula seems to help build my immunity defense, so I can fight off colds which I used to get a least once a month.
5.0 - Take this and stay well!
This is my family’s “go to” when we are exposed to the flu and colds. If you take it at the first sign that you MIGHT be getting sick, it will help you fight it. Follow the directions and STAY WELL! Offices should carry this for anyone that wants to take it to avoid getting sick. It really works! I didn’t love the taste of the tablets and the capsules fixed that concern completely. Eat first and drink lots of water. Thank you for Wellness Formula!
5.0 - Prevents ommon cold/flu
I've used this product for years. When I take it at the first signs of imbalance, it usually prevents colds/flu, even when I have been heavily exposed to others who are sick. It seems to alkalize my system.
5.0 - Absolute must for your medicine cabinet
This is something that you'll never find me without... This stuff works so well! As soon as I feel a cold coming on or I'm around someone who is sick I also start to take this and it keeps me healthy. I now use it daily and not only when I feel sick. I recommend taking it with food. They don't smell great, you can really smell the garlic, but it's worth it.

5.0 - this thing works for me
I don't serious flu anymore. Don't know if it's the propolis or sambucus that is in here but this thing works better Tamiflu for me. The anti viral and anti biotic qualities of this supplement are incredible: works on ear infection, cuts, cold sores, pink eye, and obviously common cold and flue. Perhaps FDA needs to regulate this...

I have been working on cruise ships in January for the past 5 years. This is the first year that I did not get a cold and cough on the ship. Not sure why I did not get sick this year other than I was taking 12 Wellness Formula pills a day.
4.0 - Recommend to everyone
Rated a 4 just cause it normally keeps my immune system at its peak & keeps cold sores away. But not this time. Idk what triggered the rash on my chin to the rash on my lip but i keep takin this product along with other things & normally cold sore/cold sore symptoms would vanish with few hours or day but its been stickin around for almost 2 weeks now. Idk what it is, maybe i was just long over due for a cold sore. Just got the rash no cold sore. Soo imma keep at it with combo of hylands cold sore tablets, peaceful mountain cold sore rescue,1000 lysine mg, & wellness formula. Fingers crossed itll be gone sooner than later
5.0 - The Best Product for Stopping a Cold!
I've been using this product for years and highly recommmend it. If you start to feel the start of cold coming on take this product. I tell everyone about it! They should call me and I could sell it for them!

Good stuff. Can't be without it during cold/flu season.
5.0 - Heads of colds before they setin!!
I didn't think it could really work BUT I noticed as we were all sick my husband was NOT catching the colds and sickies going around all family members....and found out he was faithfully taking Wellness Formula!! and if he felt he was coming down with something he takes the recommended extra dosage. THIS STUFF WORKS!!! and it gives you a good feeling of wellbeing...I know that sounds crazy and the FDA would say "this has not been proven" well WHATEVER. I can tell you from first hand experience this formula will prevent sickness and boost your immune system.
5.0 - excellent immune system supplement
excellent immune system supplement. It works really good, I gave it to my child and it helped him a lot. He got a bad cold and I started giving him the caps and within a couple of days he was healthy again. Just drink them with lots of water so they go down all the way or you could start burping them and the taste of the formula is not good.
5.0 - When ever you feel the first sign of a cough ...
When ever you feel the first sign of a cough, cold, sore throat, take these for a day, or two and honestly the symptoms are gone.
5.0 - Absolutely amazing. I have a horrible immune system and
Absolutely amazing. I have a horrible immune system and, especially in winter, get sick all the time. I take this at the first sign of any cold and feel better the next day. The only thing I don't like is that the serving size is 6 pills when you feel like you're coming down with something and 4 for maintenance. I also have a problem with capsules opening in my esophagus because they didn't go all the way down and boy do these ones hurt if they open in your throat. Definitely take these with food so this doesn't happen to you.
5.0 - Works fast and well!
I just use this at the hint of a cold and it works wonders, seriously. I take 6 capsules initially and then the next day or two 3 capsules and the cold never really manifests any further. Simple, I like simple :)
5.0 - ... I've been using it for over 12 years It's wonderful
Whenever you feel rundown or starting to get a cold take this every three hours and you're almost certain not to get sick I've been using it for over 12 years It's wonderful

5.0 - Source Naturals Wellness Forumula - Say Goodbye to Colds and Flu
I have never been this impressed with a supplement before. Source Naturals Wellness Formula can be taken year round for general wellness but most take it during the cold and flu season. I took a chance on this after reading every single review I could find on it both on Amazon.com and elsewhere and I am so happy that I did. Both my wife and I swear by this stuff and since we started taking it roughly two years ago neither one of us have been sick with a cold or the flu. We have three kids and they are always bringing home "bugs" from school. On top of that my wife is an R.N. and she is around sick people all day. With Source Naturals Wellness Formula we worry less about getting sick. Is it possible to get the flu or a cold while taking this? I imagine so but we have yet to get sick since taking this product.
5.0 - Five Stars
Great product I already feel better from a cold that I caught a few days ago!
5.0 - Beats a cold
I have used this product for several years and found if you take it as soon as you can (a few Sneezes) I use it. I found that it turns off the cold symptons very quickly and in a week you would not know I had any cold symptoms at all. This was recommended by a nurse practioner. Amazon had the best price and all stores do not carry the 240 capsule bottle.
5.0 - Five Stars

5.0 - Stay WELL!!!
If you feel you are getting a common cold, scratchy throat, runny nose....begin right away and you will be amazed.
5.0 - Excellent Product
After success with the 90 count I opted to purchase a larger quantity and have been taking it to prevent colds, etc. Love it!
5.0 - Works!
Use this all the time when I feel like I have a cold coming on or everyone around me is sick. 95% of the time it allows me to ward off whatever is ailing me. In the winter I use it as a daily supplement and I haven't been sick with colds like in past years. By the way, I teach so, to me, this is a miracle!
5.0 - Wonderful little pills!
Great deal on a great med. Take these just as you are getting sick (or when you kids come home with a cold) and you are safe. It will quickly knock the cold out of your system and you will be great by the next day.
5.0 - Works great!
Usually purchase my Wellness Formula at the local health store. Was great to be able to buy it at Amazon for a cheaper price. The Wellness Formula is the best product I've found for helping stop a cold in it's tracks
5.0 - Universe pills - somehow they work!
in our home, we refer to this as "universe pills" because of the picture of the galaxy on the bottle. My super skeptical husband and I both got sick right after the holidays and one of our semi-granola friends recommended this to us. As cold medicine either doesn't work, works only a short time, or makes us feel weird (Sudafed!), we decided to try it, and wow. We were both on the mend within 3 days, which was pretty surprising.
5.0 - Wellness Formula is a great immune system booster!
I have put so many people onto this amazing supplement. I was first introduced to this supplement by a good friend whose husband had a bone marrow transplant and she wanted to make sure he was protected. She recommended that at the first sign of a cold, I take four capsules every four hours until symptoms subside. I did so when I felt a tickle in my throat and the onset of a cold coming on. This supplement knocked the cold out of my system before it took hold. A number of co-workers swear by the Wellness Formula now. Each capsule has 1300mg of Vit C, in addition to other herbal ingredients so it packs a punch. And the ingredients are water soluble so whatever your body doesn't use, gets flushed out. This can also be taken as a supplement every day for immune system reinforcement.
5.0 - News From A Chronic Common Cold Girl
I have a long standing history of being the "sick girl," I would often carry around a box of tissues because I would always have a cold. So when I started a job working in the ER I was concerned that I would be getting sick quite frequently so I bought these. I have been working there for a couple months so far and have yet to get sick! Despite what other people may be saying about this, it still does a great job of boosting the immune system. I haven't changed anything in my diet except for these and I am so happy I bought them!
4.0 - Works so far.
Not sure of how this works except I haven't gotten a cold since buying this and I have no ill effects from taking it. And somehow just thinking that it may be working is certainly giving me peace of mind. I will try to repost a review if/when I do catch something.
5.0 - Great for colds and boosting immune system
Whenever I get sick I take these continuously throughout the day (every 1-2 hrs) and I'm fine within 24-48 hrs! Highly recommended. Amazon gives a great deal on the 240 capsules bottle.
5.0 - Great Product! Worth every penny
This product works especially well when you have that slight tingle in your throat and it's probably going to turn into a full blown cold/flu...the bottle says to take 6 pills=one serving size. I really really do feel like it gets you out of the woods. It doesn't seem to work if you are already full blown sick. Every one of my family members uses this product..It's worth every penny...about $20 to be exact..they carry it at my local Sprouts.

5.0 - ... this is but as soon as I start feeling like I'm getting sick
Not sure what kind of witch medicine this is but as soon as I start feeling like I'm getting sick, I start popping 3 of these every 4-5 hours for a few days and my cold never comes. Either this really works or +1 for placebo effect. Either way, so long as it prevents me from getting sick, I am all for it!!!!
5.0 - Love it!
Love this. Used Cold Snap for years, but this is less expensive and works just as well.

Shortens my colds a bit or at least seems to diminish the severity
5.0 - Really works
If you take this product just when you experience the first signs of a cold, your symptoms will probably be very mild. The trick is to keep taking it until all symptoms are gone.
5.0 - This stuff really works!!
I am a fairly healthy person so when I suggested this to my husband who gets sick every cold and flu season at least twice, he thought it was just another one of my "healthy" ideas. Well it was but it worked!! He started taking it immediately when he started getting sick and for the first time in years he managed through last year's season without getting sick. Last week he started having some symptoms and failed to take Wellness Formula and ended up getting sick again. I just ordered another 240 capsules of the stuff. I think he learned his lesson.
5.0 - Good product good price
This product works to knock down a cold at the first sign of symptoms.
5.0 - They were recommended by my acupuncturist
They were recommended by my acupuncturist. I take them whenever I feel like am fighting off a bug. They seem to help me, hardly ever get sick and haven't had a cold in years.
5.0 - Great immune booster
Sources Naturals Wellness Formula is my go to herbal immune booster. If I'm traveling or going to be in crowds, I take the Wellness Formula beforehand to boost my immune system and protect me from picking up some nasty cold or other illness. It contains a great combination of herbs that keep you healthy. And, if you're definitely getting that cold, start taking this and it will shorter your illness. I'm not a doctor, but I do know that this product works great for me.
5.0 - Wellness Formula
Amazing preventative product. Works great. Take 1 a day, and take 3 at a time (2 to 3 times a day) if you feel you have the early signs of a cold.
5.0 - Helps fight colds
I use these every time I'm on the verge of sickness. It typically curbs the common cold!
5.0 - Good Immunity Support
This Wellness product helps my immune system. I take it when a feel a sinus infection/cold coming on. I have to take 6 pills for a few days, then I am better.
5.0 - Best feel-good formula out there!
If I feel a little under the weather - scratchy throat or feel like a cold is coming on I take 4-5 of these capsules and usually, if I've responded to how I feel quickly enough, I head off the poor feeling and recover nicely within the next day or so. Change of season sometimes affects me, kids, friends, co-workers sneezing, but no issue when I have my Wellness Formula close-at-hand!
5.0 - Good cold and flu defence.
I have used wellness formula for many years, and it has been very good in reducing the length of time of any call or flu symptoms that I have had.

really works when you take it at first signs of cold
4.0 - Good way to Support Immune System
I live in a harsh cold, dry climate 9 months out of the year, and when the flu hits the area, it is nasty and hard to get over. I started taking these wellness capsules once a day to maintain my immune system and then 3 times a day when I am starting to feel sick. I no longer am stuck on the couch for 3-4 days unable to move when the first wave of the flu season hits. These things are amazing, and much cheaper on Amazon then in my local health food store. Will continue to purchase through Amazon.
5.0 - good stuff
I take 2 daily for maintenance. anytime I feel something coming on or a little out of kilter, I take 3 then rinse my nasal w/ saline and take 3 more when I go to bed. I haven't been sick in nearly 2 years. note that I used to get 2 to 3 sinus infections/colds a year
5.0 - Ward Off Colds and Flu
Order for my Mother, she loves this formula. She swears it helps ward off flu and colds and if by chance she feels like she may be getting something, says this supplement helps to knock it out quickly.
5.0 - Healthy as can be!
Since I started incorporating this product into my vitamin regimen, I haven't felt more protected with all the other sick people around me or gotten over my sinus infections so quickly. To protect myself from others and boost my immune system, I take 1 or 2 of these morning and night. If I'm stressed, feeling like I'm getting a cold or sinus infection, or I'm around a lot of sick people, I take 3 of these at least twice a day, sometimes 3 times a day. These work wonders and are a great bargain if you subscribe.
5.0 - Always keep this 'on-hand.'
Take two of these each morning and more if you think you're catching a cold or sore throat. It really helps and I have more energy.
5.0 - Source Naturals Wellness Formula Caps 240

5.0 - Wellness Formula is my go to supplement
Great deal! Love this product and this seller made it easy. The Wellness Formula is the one supplement that has always helped me to not get sick or get well fast. A must for cold and flu season.
4.0 - I think it works as I haven't caught a cold ...
I think it works as I haven't caught a cold since I started using it. There should be a warning not to take it before bedtime though, as it keeps me up for hours. I took some at 11 pm and it's now 3 am and I'm still wide awake. Note that I bought the bottle at a Whole Foods in CA so apparently it's a different formulation (and also much more expensive).
5.0 - I have fended off sore throats, colds and flu ...
I have fended off sore throats, colds and flu bu taking these at the onset. For me they are an addition to another vitamin regime that I am on, but when I start feeling something come on...I overdose on these and BAM***** Gone with the germs!
5.0 - Take it before any cold symptom.
Wellness Formula works like magic for me. I always take it before I feel sick or cold, and I can feel it helps to boost my immune system to defend common cold.
5.0 - Great for Colds
I have been using this product for a while and it certainly makes me and my family feel better and get better faster.
5.0 - I highly recommend this product
Wellness Formula keeps the winter colds away and it greatly reduces my spring and fall allergies as well. I highly recommend this product. It came securely packaged from the seller.
5.0 - Body back in balance
Works very well at putting your body back in balance, especially after being sick with a cold. Only complaint is they tend to be hard to swallow. A bit on the BIG size. Other than that, I will reorder them and take the recommended 2 caps daily to stay in balance. If my students give me their "bugs" again, I'll up it to the recommended 12 caps a day, until the bugs (cold) is gone. Good product!
5.0 - I've been using this product for several years when I ...
I've been using this product for several years when I catch a cold. This product works very well. If the cold is not warded off entirely (one needs to attack the cold at the very earliest symptoms), then by following the directions the cold is reduced to 3 days vice the normal two weeks!
5.0 - These things are super expensive at Whole Paycheck and other places
I swear by this stuff. Whenever, i have an inkling I might be catching a cold, or I think i might be getting a sore throat, I start popping 2 of these 3x a day..RELIGIOUSLY! I do this for about 3 weeks. Now, once i quit, taking them sometimes wi/in a few days those signs and symptoms seems to be returning, So I start the whole 2 pills 3x daily again. I only take this for when i think a cold is coming on. These things are super expensive at Whole Paycheck and other places, so buy them here. My husband didn't believe they worked, until his whole office got sick with a nasty virus. Well guess who started taking them then...and guess who never came down with the office virus. He swears by them now, and he is not one to believe easily about herbs. Wellness Formula really works outstanding for us!!
5.0 - Health Supplement
My brother told me about this product and it seems to work. That is, I don't get colds as often or become really sick. I was looking to replenish my supply and ordered through Amazon.
5.0 - Five Stars
Best product for getting thru cold, flu's, etc and staying healthy.
5.0 - This stuff really works
Been taking this for several years now, and the number and severity of colds has greatly diminished. The trick is to get started at the first sign of symptoms, or even sooner if you know you've been exposed by a snotty nosed person. I find that I don't need to take the amount prescribed, cutting back to a couple of capsules every few hours seems to do the trick for me. Worth their weight in gold!
5.0 - OUTSTANDING PRODUCT
This is a great product as long as you follow the proper dosage recommendation. I take this everyday so I can prevent any issues during this cold season.
5.0 - Aptly Named Helps the Immune System
I've not gotten sick since I started using this, (4 a day), about 6 months ago. Got through the flu season and seem to be resistant to those bad 2 week colds that come around every now and then. I go to meetings and mingle with many people in small rooms about 4 times a week, so I am exposed to whatever is the illness du jour at the time.
4.0 - Good Stuff
A coworker gave me some in the original pill form after explaining i had been fighting a cold for 2 days. I took 6 that day and 3 the next morning and by midday the cold was gone. So i purchased the capsule version, because they're smaller. I do think these work just as well (i have a toddler and have not caught a cold since taking) but i do think the original pill form is slightly better. I will be purchasing those next time.
5.0 - Five Stars
These are LIFE SAVERS during cold and flu season.
5.0 - WELLNESS indeed! Highly recommend for lessening severity and duration of colds.
Always my go to for whenever I feel something coming on. Greatly lessens the severity of the bug I've caught and I always carry a bottle with me if I'm traveling for a longer period of time. Essential!!! I experience some garlicy aftertaste, but I love garlic and eat a lot of it anyways.
5.0 - It's a miracle and it truly works
I reach for this product immediately when I feel an imbalance, i.e., sore throat...headache. Whatever your symptoms, head for this product ASAP and it will make small tracks out of what could have been a giant. Best used only for times you have the start of cold or flu symptoms....it really works and I've never been let down in the many years I have used it.
5.0 - This stuff is magical
I have never been a believer in herbal supplements. I am completely skeptical of anything that is not prescribed and proven by the FDA. This product, however, is unbelievable. I was getting a cold every few months before religiously taking this product every day. Since then, I have yet to be sick and I'm going on 6 months now. Every time I feel a little tinge of something coming on I pop 6-9 pills over the course of a day and BOOM it's gone!! How does this work so effectively? I don't know! I don't care...it just works. I am so glad this product is on the market. It works. Period.
5.0 - good s***. helps me get better a lot faster ...
good s***. helps me get better a lot faster whenever i just have something simple like a cold without the need to go to a doctor or use some other medicine.
5.0 - Great for helping kick the crud!
I started taking this product a few years ago when my whole family was stricken with H1N1. I personally think it helped shorten the length of time we were sick with it. Now my husband and I keep it around just in case. Whenever one of us is feeling something coming, we start taking it. We either end up with a shorter cold or nothing at all. I highly recommend this.
5.0 - Works great
I've been taking one of these each morning, plus a package of Emergen-C and I've only been sick once in 4 years. I used to get a cold every year. I start taking them when it gets cold and everybody starts getting sick and quit in the spring when flu and cold season is over. Works great.
5.0 - Really DOES keep colds away
I have been using this product for 3 years. Following directions on the label, have reduced the frequency of colds from 3 or 4 a year to NONE. Recently discovered a much better price on Amazon than the previous supplier.
5.0 - I love this
It is my go to when I need to fight off a cold or whatever bug may be around. It is so worth buying and has kept away the flu and other cold symptoms.
5.0 - Cold relief and year-round wellness support
This product requires you to take 6 capsules twice daily at the onset of illness, and while that seems like a lot, it makes a world of difference. There's no need for cold medicines with this supplement, and my symptoms nearly disappeared as long as I continued to take the supplements as instructed.
5.0 - I recommend it
It is a great product. For these times of constant colds the whole family uses it!! The capsules are much easier to swallow than the tablets.
5.0 - It works great a long time customer of this produce great for the flu and cold season
I have been using this produce for a couple year now and it getting hard to found since where I was buying closed. I am glad I found it on line. We are not down with the flu or colds since we been taking this.
5.0 - If you feel a sickness coming on try this first, you will be amazed.
Okay so my mom has told me about this stuff for years and I always heard her but wasn't convinced. Then last year our family was getting colds like all the time and I was desperate for help and mom my reminded me of this stuff so I thought what the heck lets give it a whirl, so I went out to the vitamin shoppe and bought some and gave it a try that night and by the next morning I was feeling way better than the night before normally I would be getting worse by that time but I was extremely surprised so pleasantly surprised that I actually ordered some on amazon to be sent to me every three months. Since then during cold season as a family we take elderberry syrup and if me or my husband feel something coming on we take this in conjunction to the elderberry syrup. Also this is not for kids so my kids have been taking the elderberry syrup and it has helped tremendously! I refer all my adult friends to this and their kids to elderberry syrup. It doesn't hurt to give it a try everyone's. Oldies are different but this has really helped me and my husband. Hope that helps in your decision, take care
5.0 - This stuff is magic
I have been using the wellness formula for YEARS. I take it right when I feel something coming on and continue until whatever it was is gone. Usually it prevents the cold or whatever from taking full effect. I only get sick about once a year because of this stuff! Very glad they made it in capsule form, the tablets were pretty disgusting and hard to swallow. These are no problem to take! Love.
5.0 - Pretty amazing really
I started taking two of these 5 days a week one year ago, I have not been sick ONE time since. No cold, no anything!! even through the cold winter. Pretty amazing really!!!
5.0 - Fending off illness
I travel almost every week for work. Long international flights mean breathing recycled air for 12+ hours. I used to get sick every single time I flew those long flights (i.e. I was never truly healthy). But ever since a friend recommended Wellness Formula (and Wellness Fizz) I haven't had a single cold, flu, or illness. Since the Wellness Formula is the only thing I changed, I attribute my new found health to taking these wonder pills.
5.0 - Every time I feel I am getting sick, or ...
Every time I feel I am getting sick, or have already started, I take Wellness. It always stops it in its tracks 100% of the time. And this has been years now. 100% of the time!! I also take a maintenance dose when traveling or doing cold/flu season.
5.0 - If you take this at the earliest possible point in ...
If you take this at the earliest possible point in time of feeling sick, it stops it. Must follow directions and must be done at the first hint of a cold. Don't bother taking it if you miss this early window.
5.0 - Great Stuff!
I swear by this stuff during cold and flu season! I take 2 a day and stay pretty healthy. If I do start to feel sick I bump them up to taking 8 total and that usually works and I feel better the next day.
5.0 - Simply Amazed by the effectiveness of this product
My husband and I use this product religiously whenever either of us feels even the slightest clue of impending illness. In fact since we started using this product a few years ago both of us have managed to avoid the cold and flu. However it does not help with allergies, I guess nothing's perfect, but this is pretty close. Keep up the good work and we'll keep buying more.
5.0 - Five Stars
Start taking this at the first sign of a cold-- this stuff is the best
5.0 - LOVE IT
This stuff is AMAZING! It always helps me get over colds faster, or completely avoid them if I start taking this right when you feel the sore throat. I have turned many friends onto it and they love it too. A MUST HAVE!
5.0 - Five Stars
Does our family good in protecting from colds.
5.0 - It buffs up my immune system and helps me feel better and avoid more serious conditions
I've used this product for years and I swear by it. I have allergies and used to get sinus infections and feel generally run down by it. I take this product when I'm feeling a cold or allergies coming on. It buffs up my immune system and helps me feel better and avoid more serious conditions.
5.0 - Really works!
I was pleasantly surprised by the effectiveness of Wellness Formula twice. The first time, I was well into cold symptoms--chills, headache, runny nose--when I began the dosing regimen. It seemed to make my sinuses drain more and faster immediately, and I was symptom free after just 3 days. The second instance, I started taking right when I had that prickly feeling in my throat, and it went away within 12 hours. I'm now a fan, and will be keeping a bottle at the ready when colds begin going around!
5.0 - Great product
I take this stuff when I am sick and never get a secondary infection and it shortans the cold.
5.0 - It really works!!!
I rarely write reviews....this has worked for me twice during the horrible cold & flu season. Discovered it by random Chance. Started takin 6 pills twice/day when symptoms first surfaced & within a day I was cold free!!!! Everyone should have this on hand!
5.0 - Zinc: the only scientifically proven element to help reduce ...
Zinc: the only scientifically proven element to help reduce the duration of the common cold. The second you feel the tickle in the back of the throat, take 6 of these daily for 3 days. Take one daily for maintenance and be healthier. These capsules work wonders almost every time.
5.0 - Great Suppliment Product for immune system
The is a great suppliment product to help strengthen your immune system & minimize cold and flu symptoms. I now take one daily as a vitamin suppliment and double-up when I feel my immune system getting week due to being exposed to others with colds and flu symptoms.
5.0 - Great product
Great product so far no flu or colds
5.0 - Five Stars
Cold/Flu Seasons Best Defense Ever
5.0 - It actually works
At the first sign of an oncoming cold, taking mega-doses of Wellness Formula usually knocks it down within a day, and otherwise reduces the symptoms.
5.0 - I have not gotten sick yet
I never get a flu shot. I have Fibromyalgia and cancer. My husband has an auto immune disease. He doesn't get flu shots either. He volunteers at the Fire Dept and I volunteer at a nursing home, so we are around germs. This is my second bottle. We've made it thru flu and cold season. My husband did get sick but it was not nearly as severe as it could have been. I stared to get it, then took extra doses and I was better in two days. I will continue to take these as long as I'm living.
5.0 - Miracle pill
Best product for staving off a cold. As soon as I start to feel under the weather, I load up on these for a few days. Works like a charm!
5.0 - Really helps
I have used this when a cold seems to coming on and used it when traveling internationally to help avoid weird bugs on plane and during travel.
5.0 - Five Stars
I think it helps me keep from getting colds. I am around many kids with them.
4.0 - Great Product!
Great product that seems to help when you have a cold. As soon as my allergies or the sniffles start I take the Wellness Formula.
5.0 - Keeps those bugs away...
i tried by recommendation of local health food store, I don't have greatest immune system and this kept away colds and flu for a year....miraculous. i take one every day, more if i'm feeling stressed or buggy. take on full stomach. Capsules best way to go, or kid chewables. ( smell/ taste is horrific)
5.0 - Great product
I first started using Welness Formula a couple of years ago. Being from New England and working in an office environment I catch cold constantly in winter. It was recommended to me by the sales staff in Whole Foods. I got the tab version, not the capsules. You need to take 3 caps every 3 hours and they smell strong, very strong. Last year I had to go to a business trip in the middle of winter and I was feeling terribly sick, during the trip the only thing that made me continue was my Welness Formula. It definitely makes you feel much better within half an hour. Of course you need to still rest and try to recover, but when you do not have the time to do that it gives you the strength to continue your day. I love it and I recommend it all the time to my friends and coworkers.
5.0 - Been using for 10+ years
I take this whenever I feel a cold coming on to boost my immune system - it's awesome
5.0 - In my opinion.
This product has kept me free from colds and flu now for 2 years. I don't get a flu shot because I don't need one with this product. I take 3 tablets daily as a maintenance dose. It is a great product.
5.0 - This is probably the best product I have ever found that truly stands up ...
This is probably the best product I have ever found that truly stands up to what it promises. If I feel a little sluggish or think I am coming down with the flu or cold I increase the number I take and 1 or 2 days later I am well again. I love this product.
5.0 - Have loved and used this product for years!
I have been using this product for at least 15 years now taking 2 a day. Very rarely do I get a cold (may have gotten 2-3 during that time and they were extremely mild) and that was even with daily commuting to NYC and being around people sneezing on you, etc. If I felt I might be getting a cold I would just bump up the dosage to around 6 a day and that seemed to really help. Would recommend this to everyone!
5.0 - Su-Z-Q-receptionist
I have used this product for about 2 years and have not missed any work due to illness. When I feel like I'm coming down with a cold, sore throat, head or chest congestion, etc., I immediately start taking these pills or capsules as directed. Usually by the 2nd day I'm fine and feeling normal again. I highly recommend this product!
4.0 - no colds
have not had a cold in over a year
5.0 - these are my good to get better fast solution
Wellness Formula rocks! Whenever I start to feel a flu or cold hitting, I start taking these and typically within 12 hours have knocked it out of my system. Really nothing else like it. These have save me during finals, scuba trips, vacations and important business trips. I always add them to my travel bags and can't recommend them highly enough.
5.0 - Five Stars
I use this product every day for maintenance and haven't had a cold in months.
4.0 - Works, but the capsules give me heartburn.
I found this product initially at the local healthfood store after being sick on and off for a month and a half (our clients don't wash their hands.. yuck). It worked so well. I decided to see if I could find a better price online, and this is a great price. However.. the ones I got at the health food store were tablets, not capsules, and the dose was 3 instead of 6. Fine, I don't mind taking a bunch of capsules at once. However, about 75% of the time I take this stuff, it gives me pretty wicked heartburn for a solid hour or so. Major pain, but I'll take it over getting sick. It definitely keeps me from catching the colds and flus that are in constant rotation at my job.
5.0 - Excellent product
Been taking this product for years--one a day and up the dosage per product's instructions if I think a cold or some other illness might be starting. Haven't been sick with a cold or sore throat or similar in a long time. Prior to getting on a regular regimen of taking wellness formula, I was frequently getting sick. My two adult children love this product also.
5.0 - simply amazing
you wont believe how miraculous this product is until you try it. i have been searching for years for a supplement that really boosts your immune system....nothing ever helped. somebody recommended wellness formula to me. i was very skeptical but tried it...and i have never been sick even once since. the good thing is that you dont even need to take this regularly...just take a few megadoses when you feel you are getting sick...the effect is virtually instant. i tend to get pretty nasty cough when i catch a cold...so recently my throat was already itchy, i felt tired and i had a cough...i took 10 tablets over the course of a day...the next morning, EVERYTHING was gone!
5.0 - Been using this for years.
I make sure I have this in my medicine cabinet all year around, but mostly use it during cold season. I've been using it for years, and happy to get a good price on it here.
5.0 - Really works
I don't know if it's placebo or what but I was getting a cold 1-2x a month before I started taking this. I take two a day and have not been sick since. I take 4 if I feel something coming on and within 48 hours, I am ok. I am a fan of this product.
5.0 - My Go To Immune Booster
I read about this product a year ago as a great way to avoid or shorten a cold. I was skeptical at first but I now know it really works. I have used this when I have felt a cold coming on ad managed to stop it on two separate occasions. I have also used this once when I had the flu and even though I still had flu symptoms they were a lot milder than usual. My only complaint is that the dosing is intense. They expect you to swallow 6 pills several times a day when you are sick or exposed to an illness! I usually take 6 or 12 (if I'm up for it) a day and I found even that makes a huge difference.
5.0 - Colds Begone
Searching for products to aid our bodies in maintaining good health is always on my agenda. Wellness Formula works well for me. The product is not a panacea, but healthy eating and this supplement has kept away the colds
5.0 - the only supplements anyone would ever need
I don't believe in taking many pills, but these capsules are a game changer. These are the only supplements anyone would ever need. I started taking them a couple of years ago and haven't been sick from colds ever since. Definitely recommend them.
5.0 - Seems to work great for me
I use this daily. When the flu and cold season comes. I increase it to 2-4 daily, to help ward off the dreaded flu and colds. Seems to work great for me.
5.0 - This is a great product!
Good brand. Great product. My naturopathic physician recommended this years ago - she was very quality aware and based her recommendations on both applied kinesiology and scientific research/evidence. We use it whenever we are beginning to feel under the weather or if we have been around others who have been sick. It is a great boost to your immune system. I have also seen it work wonders with people who were chronically sick (cold, flu, bronchitis, etc..... not other more serious conditions). My ND also recommended against using it a more than 1/2 of the days during any one year, so that it does not decrease it's effectiveness over time.
4.0 - Cold be gone!
Excellent. use in conjunction with Umcka cold care at the first sign of a cold - gone in 2-3 days.
5.0 - you will not be disappointed!! Take at first sign of cold and ...
Swear by this stuff, you will not be disappointed!! Take at first sign of cold and sore throat, then hop into bed!!
5.0 - Immune system builder that works.
Wellness formula really works. My wife's mother was real susceptible to colds, flu and pneumonia so I got her to start taking these and she had not more problems. Her other daughter who is a nurse said to take another vitamin and she go sick and pneumonia within about 4 months. My wife was the director of a medical lab and her mom's immune system was terrible until she started on the Wellness formula. Within 2 months is showed improvement and she did not get sick anymore at all until her other daughter took her off it. When she recovered from her pneumonia my wife got her back on the wellness formula and .she has had no colds, flu or pneumonia since and she will shortly be 85 years old and her immune system according to her lab work again shows improvement.
5.0 - I always keep this in my cold medicine collection.
I have this product handy so that when I feel a cold coming on, I just reach for it. Along with Zicam or zinc, I take 4 of these every four hours and I'm cold, congestion free. It's a wonder. I can't imagine how I tolerated all those colds before now. This make like a little more tolerable when you are without a cold!
5.0 - I hate when I run out
Must have while my kids are in school. Take at the fist sign of a cold and you can avoid getting it. I hate when I run out. Avoid getting one stuck in your throat as it taste awful to burp.
5.0 - Five Stars
A friend introduced me to this and I'm hooked. Keeps colds at bay!
5.0 - It works
I've never really taken nutritional supplements but last year when I was suffering from a cold, I was introduced to the Wellness Formula and after taking it for two days, I recovered. I thought it was a fluke so the next time I had symptoms of a cold coming on, I bought it and tried it again and it worked. Now, whenever I have symptoms of getting ill, I take it prophylactically and I haven't suffered from a cold yet. I've told others about it and they state the same. I'm not sure what's in this stuff and how it works, but it works.
5.0 - This product really works!
I have been using this product for over 15 years. At the first inclination where I feel a cold or sore throat coming on, I take 5 capsules to build up my immune system, then continue taking 5 capsules each day for the next few days. I don't say this will work for everyone, but for me, I have found either the cold never materializes or it's gone in a couple days. Same for a sore throat. The important thing to remember is, one must take these capsules at the first sign of illness. Once you've been sick for a few days, I have found to start taking these capsules does not have the same positive effects as taking them before the illness sets in.
5.0 - Works for me
I took the Wellness Formula for years and never got sick. I stopped taking it two years ago and started getting winter colds, a recurrence of allergies. Just started taking it again about 5 months ago and stayed well through the flu and cold season. Call it a placebo drug or what you will, I'll keep taking it.
5.0 - Magic pills
These wellness pills are kind of magic. There is a cold going around at work, so I started taking a few of these a day. My girlfriend got the cold and most of my colleagues, but I actually feel better than usual. Lots of B vitamins and other awesome herbals in these. My girlfriend also started taking them the day she started feeling bad, and the cold never hit her very hard. Also she seems to feel better about an hour after taking these. I highly recommend this product as a staple for your medicine cabinet!
5.0 - This stuff seriously is the best for fighting off illness
This stuff seriously is the best for fighting off illness. Whenever I start to feel like Im about to get sick. I pop the recommend dose for a few days and its gone. All natural. Seriously people should try it at least once this cold season.
5.0 - Stops your cold in its Tracks!
I was truly skeptical, but a family friend swore by it. She warned me that it smelled pretty herbally strong, but that it's worth it to stop a cold dead in its tracks. Sure enough, it smelled pretty garlicky, but after taking 24-48 hours my cold was gone. I've used it ever since. Works best if you can take it as soon as you experience the onset of a cold, but I have taken it after the sore throat and body aches were in full effect and it still worked! This has saved myself and multiple friends from stopping our colds just before going on vacation. My only warnings are that it tastes very herbally and can give you gas, but its better than being sick and missing work or your vacation.
5.0 - This supplement really helps in lessening the effects of a ...
This supplement really helps in lessening the effects of a cold. Take it when you feel that you are starting to come down with something.
5.0 - I've been using this for years and it's AMAZING!
This supplement is truly worth every penny! I use it at the onset of a cold and never get sick. It's one of those items that I always have on-hand. I don't have any issues with the way they smell, however the pill is like a large vitamin. I take six pills 2x a day when I'm feeling sick and stop taking them either when my symptoms have passed or if once I'm no longer exposed to sick people. They also make a kids liquid version, which I give to my baby and also recommend. Can't say enough good things!
4.0 - They actually work most of the time
This product definetely works better than anything else I've tried. Zicam and Cold Eeze never did anything to shorten my colds and very rarely seemed to ward them off. Nature's Way Systemwell Ultimate Immunity didn't really work either. With the Wellness Formula I have been seeing results over a long period of time. Mind you, this isn't perfect, I have still gotten a cold now and then...but often they are less serious than the colds I used to get. Not every time, I did have a bad cold or two. The big thing I love about it is that SO many times I've felt myself getting sick. Chilled, a stinging in my throat, exhausted...you know how it is when you feel a cold coming. I take some of these as recommended and most of the time the cold is chased away. There really seems to be something to them. My only concern is that I've been getting newer bottles without Goldenseal in the ingrediants, so I've been buying that seperate when it used to be included. Bummer, but maybe a temporary shortage?
5.0 - I have used this product since 1999 and I still stand by it.
This product is my "go to" during winter months. I first learned of this product back in the 1990's when my mother was a pre school teacher. She swore by it after trying it for her first cold / flu season. I have since used this product as an immune defense / maintenance supplement. It has never failed. It works just as the instructions describe, and I have found that it will kill the length of a virus by half time. Meaning that if a cold usually takes 3-6 days to recover from symptoms; if you take wellness formula as directed during your imbalance, you will be clear nosed and snot free within 2-3 days.
5.0 - Wellness is as wellness should be
Taking one in the morning and one in the afternoon keeps the immune system strong. When I feel a cold coming on, I double the dose and haven't had a cold since taking this.
5.0 - Healthier Alternative Medication Proven With Us
Alternative medication- all are different, some work, some definitely do not. This particular OTC works. And work well it does with gradual result. My family doesn't take daily, but when we feel a cold or similar condition coming on, we begin to use, as instructed, (for seven days). Within two days, we begin to notice a difference and are already starting to feel better. By day four, we're almost back to our normal self but continue for another three days to finalize the result. I couldn't praise high enough although I would imagine this unique formula works as it does depending on one's chemistry. For our family's biologic's, Source Naturals Wellness Formula is extremely effective. The ingredients are certainly healthier for our bodies over other OTC medications available.
5.0 - Five Stars
great product, really seems to make a cold go away faster
5.0 - Great Product- but you must take it correctly
Years ago this was recommended to me by a coworker when I worked outside at a local market. I had a terrible cold and she suggested I go buy this. I have used it ever since (that was 1997). At the first sign of a cold of any kind or flu like feelings, I take the recommended amount (six capsules- 3 times a day for several days) and drink lots of water and try to get as much sleep as possible. I also take 2 capsules a day during the winter cold/flu months. While everyone else has a cold that lasts for weeks, mine is gone in days. Try this stuff! It has worked very well for me over the years.
5.0 - This stuff is great for colds...
I used this product years ago and found if I felt a cold or flu coming on I would start taking it and found the symtomes were much less severe. I couln't find this in local stores, but l am glad I found it again....
5.0 - I love this, no more colds.
I love this. I've been using it for a couple of years. I started taking it after getting serious colds. Since I started using it, I have not gotten sick. I subscribe to it and take 2 in the morning and two at night.
5.0 - Works for me
I have been taking Wellness Formula on a daily basis for years. I use to get colds often and now even if I'm around sick people I don't get sick. This really helps boost your immune system. I love it.
5.0 - Great for Colds
I've used Wellness formula for years it's awesome!
5.0 - Loved The Old Formula - New One Doesn't Work
I get ear infections very often. I've been on a cycle of antibiotics for almost a year. Whenever I catch a cold it goes into my ears. Just started a new job, and had that horrible sore throat. I panicked and knew I couldn't go on antibiotics again, they're weakening my whole immune system. My bottle was about 5 mos. old and the directions recommended that when you're sick to take 6 tablets every 3 hours (and I believe it recommended to wake up during the night). I did it, and it kicked it within a day or two! I'm so sold. But now I see the dosage has changed. I would love to know why.
5.0 - Awesome Product
This is an AWESOME product. I swear by this product's ability to raise the immune system and keep colds and flu at bay. I wouldn't be without it.
4.0 - Oh Yes it Works
Okay, so this stuff smells pretty bad...but these gel caps are better than the pressed pills since you do not taste this stuff in a gel cap. I have tried the liquid and the pressed pills and could hardly swallow them because of the bitter taste. The truth is...I had a nagging cough from a business trip. A friend said that olive leaf extract was the next natural thing to try. He was right. My cough that I had for 6 weeks was gone the second day of taking this product! Any time I start to feel something coming on...this will be part of my 'go to' arsenal to stop or shorten a cold or other illness.

Great for prevention of flue and cold I keep it at home.
5.0 - Best way to keep away a cold
The minute I feel a scratchy throat / post-nasal drip / general exhaustion, I pop a few of these vitamins. I don't take them daily... only when I'm starting to feel sick or traveling. I used to get a cold about 3-4 times a year; since I've been taking these (upon the first signs), I haven't been sick at all. Whether it's placebo effect or what, I'm not sure. But I can say they've worked incredibly well for me.

A nurse recommended this to me for sinus infections & I recommend all sick people try them for colds & flus:) the only thing that sucks is it say to take 6 every 3 hours & I have to swallow them one by one with lots of water to prevent yucky burps
5.0 - Great to ward off colds
Great to ward off colds. Also, like that if you do get a cold you can add more pills to make it go away quicker, which really works.
5.0 - The attributes of Wellness Formula
The title speaks for itself! Along with making sure one eats healthy foods and gets plenty of exercise and rest, this products helps insure one to avoild those nasty colds and viruses. If we do our part, Wellness will do its part. I have been taking this product for years and years. I recently discovered that Amazon carries it so I am ordering from them now.
5.0 - No more miserable colds for our family!!
I used to get sick all the time. It was miserable, I was miserable & I was the one bringing the germs into the house & getting everyone else sick. I felt like a prisoner in my home every year during cold/flu season. I came across this product on Amazon & decided to give it a try & it has literally been life changing! The other reviewers detail how it's used so I won't reiterate that other then to say that I use a smaller dose as a preventative throughout the winter & then take the recommended dose when I feel a cold coming on. We keep a bottle in our cars, each bathroom, the kitchen, etc & I wish the kids could keep a bottle in their lockers at school! Thank you Source Naturals for this wonderful product. We have tried other products made by other companies but nothing compares to Wellness Formula.
5.0 - Awesome
I call these "Superman" tablets because they render me so much more invincible to colds/flu etc! Thanks for a great product!

5.0 - I don’t think it’s just placebo... I think this product really works!
My mom let me try some of hers a few years ago when I felt like I was getting a cold. I have been my own now since they really do seems to give me some natural feeling pep and possibly prevent mild colds. I also take these in times of stress when my immune system takes a hit and it seems to help!

This is our go to for fighting off colds in our house. It is amazing!
5.0 - Good to take at the first sign of catching something.
A friend suggested these capsules, and every time I think I’m coming down with something, cold or sore throat, I start taking these and the next morning I feel fine. However, my husband and I both had the flu from a cruise we were on. High fevers and felt terrible. We started taking these but they didn’t work once we were already sick.
5.0 - Miracle Pills
I swear by these vitamins! No need for the flu-shot when taking these regularly, they truly keep your immune system strong. My boyfriend was coming down with a cold and was experiencing flu like systems when I told him to go out and buy this product. He took 6 pills and was completely fine the next morning. I take 2 pills daily, and have not been sick yet - even when exposed to others who had the flu. Strongly recommend for warding off colds and flu!
4.0 - Great Cure-All Product
I dealt with a cold for weeks and weeks on end and was sleeping, drinking fluids, etc. Nothing would stop it. I ordered this product after a suggestion from a friend and wala-gone. It's a natural way to end sickness and with all the nutrients, it'll help you knock out your sickness in no time.

I've been using this product for a while and swear by it…..I take the recommended daily maintenance dosage and at the onset of cold symptoms increase it as directed…My spouse has brought home a few colds over a couple years which I did not catch…did get some symptoms which disappeared….Once I did have a very mild cold for only a few days….I can't prove it's not coincidence , but the pattern has lasted such a long time , it can't be dismissed…I will continue to make the Wellness Formula part of my daily vitamin process…..
5.0 - Works Great For Me and High Quality Product
Been using and recommending this product for years to friends when they start to get sick, have everybody hooked during cold and flu season and as a preventive before traveling.
5.0 - Reluctant Believer
I had taken these a few years ago before I had children and then stopped while pregnant. They got rearranged in the bathroom and I forgot all about them until a few months ago. I just had my second baby and the first one, while I love her dearly, is a germ bucket and brings home every cold she comes in contact with. Now that I have a newborn, I needed to stay healthy. So, I started taking these again just to see. So far this year my husband has had three colds, and I have not been sick at all. I take one pill in the morning and one at night, not nearly what the recommended dosage is on the bottle. When I do start to feel something coming on, a slight cough or runny nose, I double the dose to two pills, twice a day, and I haven't had anything develop past that first day of feeling slightly off. I have to say, I"m a believer! I think these are great!
5.0 - Follow the directions on the bottle and you'll be set!
I've been using this stuff for a long time. If you start seeing early signs of a cold or flu, and you take 3 of these a few times a day, you'll be better by the next day. IT'S AMAZING! Follow the directions on the bottle!
5.0 - If you catch a cold coming on and can take ...
If you catch a cold coming on and can take this stuff right then it prevents the cold from happening at all but you have to take it right when you know something is coming on.
4.0 - Get well and stay well
Great product and helps cut the duration of colds and such, especially if you take it as soon as you think you're coming down with something, or others around you are so you can hopefully keep from getting sick. Even take as a daily supplement. Admittedly they've changed things at some point over the past several years, it isn't as potent, but still works.
5.0 - Great for a cold
I keep this product in stock to help prevent colds. I've also taken this product after having gotten a cold, and my body healed much faster that I expected. I actually started using this products from recommendations from 2 other friends who use it.
5.0 - No more colds
I started taking Wellness at the suggestion of a friend in 1999. I haven't had a single (that's not one) cold since. Not one. Before Wellness, I got the standard number of colds ... one or two a year.
5.0 - Five Stars
Great product to use especially when you are coming down with a cold etc.
4.0 - Great formula to stay healthy
I take this product during the cold/flu season. If I start to feel sick I take a couple every 3-4 hours. It always helps me feel better. It contains all the best immune boosters.
5.0 - Keeps illness from getting really bad
I have been taking this product for two years now. Anytime I feel a little run down or that I might be coming down with something I start talking these as directed. Whatever the illness is it never seems to get really bad. It makes what might have been a really bad cold and makes it a slightly annoying cold instead. Coincidence...maybe but I think I'll stick with this product.
4.0 - Definately Feeling Much Happier! not sure on the cold yet
So I had this horrible sinus cold for over a month! I was at a Mind Body and Spirit Fair, and was told to try it. It was sold out in most health food stores. I have been taking if for three days now. I have been taking 3 tablets (P.U. they are stinky) every four hours. So far, I have noticed my coughing is a lot less, but still there. The for sure thing I notice is a increase in my mood. I feel more energetic and happy. Now maybe it is just my mind playing tricks on me. But so far, I think it is great for my well being! The cold is about done, but the cough kind of lingers.........so time will tell. I would recommend this to friends for a feeling of energy and well being.
5.0 - Great product!
Helps to boost your immune system but as any vitamin/supplement shouldn't be taken on an empty stomach. Doesn't really smell great but definitely does the job. I took two caps in AM and two after dinner. It helped me to finally get over many reoccurring colds that I battled the entire winter. Definitely would recommend this product!
5.0 - Five Stars
It's a life saver. It keeps me from getting colds - ever.
5.0 - Miraculous Results
This was recommended to me by a friend who has also suffered with allergies and summer colds for years. I was in the midst of the worst bout of head and chest congestion when I started taking this. It MAY be coincidence, but within 24 hours, my body was fighting back and winning. Since I began taking these capsules, I have eliminated the use of antihistimines and decongestants. NO Sinus Headaches! I do not take them all the time. I take one a day if symptoms begin. After 3 days, I do not need them. I have breezed through Cottonwood season this year, while those around me have suffered.
5.0 - Cold Buster
Wellness Formula is just too good. Glad we found it on Amazon, other stores sell it for a higher price. It has all essential herbs needed to give you an immunity boost or to help kick a cold.
5.0 - The best cold season supplement
I buy this on a regular basis and always have an extra bottle in the house. This cuts a cold or even a flu in half for me.

The best immunity / cold fighting pills
5.0 - I've been directly exposed to colds and just take the recommended dosage for this and have avoided getting sick
I've used this for about a year now and it works wonders keeping me from getting sick. I've been directly exposed to colds and just take the recommended dosage for this and have avoided getting sick. You do need to be careful if you are taking other vitamins that you are not taking to much of something.
5.0 - A LIFE SAVER!!
We use Wellness whenever we catch a cold or are even around someone who has a cold. Often it is so potent that it gets rid of the cold before it sets in. You have to take a lot to boot the cold but, it often works so, it's worth it.
5.0 - The ONLY thing we take when we feel a cold coming on
Was recommended to me by my nutritionist as well as my health guru sister in law.
5.0 - Take early
This was highly recommended to me by my health oriented peers as really working. Take at first sign of cold.
5.0 - Excellent, a little pricey but super good to keep on hand.
Excellent if you use immediately when you feel strange, a cold coming on or your immune system compromised. I keep this on hand at all times. I gave it a 4 because it's not going to completely ward off illness 100% of the time but it can certainly stop it from going further or minimize the severity.
5.0 - Love this stuff!
Just love this stuff! It actually works and I've recommended it to many friends. Even if you take it after you start with a cold it will lessen the severity.
5.0 - Okay, so this does work.
My chiropractor recommended this to me as a way to boost my immune system. I have definitely taken it consistently and as directed at the very hint of a cold, and I've ended up getting sinus infections and bronchitis just as usual over the previous months. Instead of this, I would recommend drinking a lot of water, taking a multivitamin, eating a healthy diet, getting plenty of sleep, and eliminating as much stress from your life as possible. That'll probably be the real trick to health -- not just a weird smelling little pill.
4.0 - Seems to work
I just started using this a few months ago. It seems to work. After a change in jobs and housing last year, I suddenly started getting sick all the time. Probably some combination of stress/sleep deprivation, environment, and exposure to people in closer quarters, but these things seem to do the trick. I went on a work trip where I was working 12 hour days and having so socialize for another 7 hours afterwards and these kept me from catching a cold I felt coming on. I recommend them.
5.0 - BEST IN CLASS
I recommend this product to any1 that loves to stay healthy!! Mom dad daughter son father cousin spouse lol EVERYONE!!!! I have bought this product for a couple years now and colds flu's and anything else cant stick around to save them lives lol. Overall very satisfied with this product!
5.0 - Magic
Magic. This saves lives. Changes lives. Is life. Seriously. I hate getting sick and this prevents colds/flus, boosts my immune system and is the best thing since anything.
5.0 - A Great Product!
I've taken Wellness Formula over thirty years & will continue taking it as long as it's available. It has kept me from getting the flu and catching colds. A friend told me about it and I was skeptical when she told me the same thing... but, I swear by it!
5.0 - BEST THING EVER.....WELLNESS FORMULA
Great PRICE as compared to anywhere we have shopped for them. I'm 61, and until.I was about 46, I used to get bronchitis like 3 times a year since high school, like clockwork. My last bout, my wife learned of Wellness Formula, I took those, and I mean to say, I was so sick, I took those, and I have never had bronchitis since; and I must add, it cleared up in only a few days. The worst thing I've ever had in all these years is a cold. If I start getting a cold, I grab these, and it's gone quickly.
5.0 - I swear by this stuff - always have a bottle on hand.
I am pretty convinced that this works - especially if I take it consistently for a few days at the very start of a cold. I didn't get sick for 5 years, possibly because I took a few tablets whenever I felt a cold coming on. Last spring I got the flu that was going around and I was horribly sick despite taking the tablets, but recovered fully in only three days. I used to take plain echinacea (for about 20 years) and Wellness Formula seems to be much more effective. Sure, might be a placebo effect, but I'm cool with that since I'm almost never sick!
5.0 - Impressive product. I have been using it as a ...
Impressive product. I have been using it as a daily supplement and have averted many colds by taking the maximum dosage at the first sign of symptoms.
5.0 - Can't be without this!

I take this every day as my multi and I take 6 twice a day when I feel a cold coming on. I swear by these pills. I don't get sick and If I do it's shortened. I use the kids' formula for my 3 year old and she is never sick.
5.0 - Fantastic capsules
I've used these for several years. I take one a day. It's the only pill I take - and I'm 72! If I get a cold which would normally last 3 weeks, I start taking 3 of these immediately and follow with 3 every 3 or 4 days. As a result, my nose might run a little, but I feel no effects otherwise - and the cold is gone in one week! These pills are wonderful!
5.0 - Great weapon during cold and flu season
Don't go without this during cold and flu season. Great value. Get gel caps to mask potent favor.
5.0 - Natural Cold Cure & Immune Support
Capsules are the WAY to go for these babies. There are so many wonderful and healing herbs in here but the smell and taste can be difficult for some. Take with some juice and make sure to purchase the capsule form. We take 3x a week to maintain health and increase if people are sick around us or doing times when the immune system is compromised. Can be used to naturally treat colds.
5.0 - Excellent
I have used Wellness Formula for quite some time now and I can definitelly atest that it noticebly helps with helping at the onset of a cold or whenever I feel weak or about to get sick.
5.0 - Great for your immune system
I've been taking these immune boosters for a number of years now and I can say that the effects have been positive. For health maintenance, I take 1-2 capsules each day. If I'm feeling a little off-balance(like when the weather gets unseasonbly cold) I'll take 3-6 capsules each day until I feel better. The recommended dosage on the bottle is different. I've experimented a bit and found that this amount works for me.
5.0 - This stuff really works, either by the placebo effect ...
This stuff really works, either by the placebo effect or by its physical properties. I don't know which. If I take it according to the directions as soon as I have the first inkling of a cold or flu or when I am exposed to them, I don't get sick. Ever.
5.0 - Price I paid on Amazon was better then Vitacost
I've been taking this for about 4 years now. It is a MUST whenever I catch cold/flu or my immune system is low! Price I paid on Amazon was better then Vitacost.
5.0 - Will never be without this product again
This stuff has changed how often I get sick and how long it lasts. I cannot imagine how I could ever go without having a bottle on hand. I have tried TONS of immune supplements. This one is great, don't know how they do it. This and a some oregano oil will whip a cold in a few days flat.
5.0 - Was skeptical but it worked for me!
Ive had numerous bouts of sickness over the last year so I wanted to try something new. So I purchased this to have at the ready when I first would develop symptoms. So finally this week I woke up with a sore throat/ dry tongue which is the first sign for me that a cold is coming. I took 3 that morning and 3 more that night and the same the next day. And the cold never came. I'm amazed because I really had pretty low expectations. It does have a rather strong smell but not enough to make me gag. Give it try. I also think it worked for me because I had this right at the start of my symptoms and was able to take it right away.

This product is great! While everyone around me is sick and in the bed sick, I'm not with this product. I begin taking this at the first feeling of a cold coming on. It pumps up your immune system. Great product and worth the money!!!!
5.0 - number one !
this is the number one product for keeping my immune system strong. even at the slightest possibility of getting a cold this fights it off the same day. only thing: make sure to drink at least half a glass of water after swallowing these...if they don't go all the way down to your stomach and start dissolving ....that burp is going to be nasty ! you might even get a little smoke effect from the powdered herbs flying out of your mouth...not a nice feeling at all
5.0 - Has made a big difference in winter colds
I've been using this product for many years as it seems like since childhood I was always the first person to catch every bug and the last one to get better. This has been one of the most effective things I have found to ramp up your immune system during cold and flu season. I do not take it all the time but keep it on hand at all times so that at the first sign of itchy throat or ookey feeling I can start taking it. Often, if I can get after it fast enough, it never develops into a full blown illness. If I do get sick, I believe this helps me fight it off a lot faster. If a family member comes down with cold or flu I always take it and oftentimes do not develop sickness. I did have sinus surgery awhile back and I think that helped a lot as far as getting sick all of the time but I have no doubt that I would be catching a lot more crud in the winter if not for this stuff. It has made a huge difference for me.

The best. I take 6 of these 3 times a day when I feel a cold coming on and I never get sick. (I used to get sick all the time). I also take 3 at least twice a day daily.
5.0 - Best Vitamin
I have been using Wellness Formula for well over a decade. It truly is the best vitamin I have found to either prevent me from getting sick when everyone around me has a cold, flu, etc, or to help me quickly recover when I've already gotten sick.
5.0 - This product works!
Wellness Formula really works! If you take it daily it will help to boost your immume system and help guard againt colds and other bugs that runs you down. Taken and the first sign of a cold it will shorten the term and severity. I've used it for three years now.
5.0 - Fantastic Immune System Booster!
Wow! Wow! Wow! I love these wellness supplements. They are great for boosting your immune system and stopping a cold right in its tracks. I take this at the first indication of a cold or sore throat. You can take up to 12 in one day. I haven't gotten really sick in a very long time because I usually get rid of it before the little sniffles turn into a serious cold. I highly recommend.

This stuff is where it's at. I am a teacher, and I take one of these every day with my regular vitamins. I think it really helps to keep me from getting sick as often. It tastes nasty--even though it's in a pill, I can still taste it. I have to take it with juice to mask the taste of the pill. But totally worth it. When I do feel myself coming down with a cold, I pop 6 in one day (as per the directions) and it helps to shorten the life of the cold, and make it less intense. It really works.
5.0 - Great!

This stuff is the BOMB! Totally kicks a colds BUTT! Love it and it really works!
5.0 - THE best product in my home
THE best product in my home! We've used Wellness Formula for over 15 years. At the first sign of a cold, we take six capsules and go to bed. 95% of the time we wake up feeling perfect! The other 5% of the time we continue for another dose or two and we're good as new. Have it handy when a cold comes on and dose immediately! It's also good for preventative measures, too! Be sure and always buy the CAPSULES, not the tablets. The tablets are very difficult to swallow and they smell so bad! This product does contain garlic so you will burp a bit. It's not super smelly!
5.0 - BETTER THAN FLU SHOTS!
I've been using this product for almost a year and it has kept me from having colds or flu. I take a daily protective dose of 2 capsules. I use this in conjunction with Natural Factors Anti-V Formula, which I take as soon as I feel a cold coming on. Both are excellent natural products which I highly recommend.

Heard from a friend this would ward off flu and colds. You need to take it before you are sick so I tried and it did help put one on delay.
5.0 - Immune system builder that works.
Wellness formula really works. My wife's mother was real susceptible to colds, flu and pneumonia so I got her to start taking these and she had not more problems. Her other daughter who is a nurse said to take another vitamin and she go sick and pneumonia within about 4 months. My wife was the director of a medical lab and her mom's immune system was terrible until she started on the Wellness formula. Within 2 months is showed improvement and she did not get sick anymore at all until her other daughter took her off it. When she recovered from her pneumonia my wife got her back on the wellness formula and .she has had no colds, flu or pneumonia since and she will shortly be 85 years old and her immune system according to her lab work again shows improvement.

Tried this for the first time last month on a friend's recommendation. This stuff works really well! My usual 2 week long cold was knocked out in 5 days! You do have to take a lot of it and it's not cheap, but I think it's worth the money to get well so much quicker.
5.0 - I won't go through a cold/flu season without it.
This stuff is awesome! Any time I feel my immune system falter, I start on this and I don't come down with a bug. I won't go through a cold/flu season with out it!
5.0 - In my opinion.
This product has kept me free from colds and flu now for 2 years. I don't get a flu shot because I don't need one with this product. I take 3 tablets daily as a maintenance dose. It is a great product.
5.0 - I know 6 capsules seems like a lot
I always keep a bottle of Wellness Formula handy so I can take it as soon as I get that feeling of a cold coming on. When taken as directed it is very effective, just don't wait until you're really sick to start taking it! The key is to take it with that first sneeze or scratchy throat. And take it as frequently as directed and as much as directed. I know 6 capsules seems like a lot, but it's just the right amount to keep you well. I find I need to take it with food and sit up for a while when I take it or I get a stomach ache. But that's all. No side effects that I could tell.
5.0 - This has become a family staple
We have been using this product for many years and it has become a staple. If one of us begins to feel run down, we use this to boost the immune system. I take this along on trips to avoid the colds and viral infections that seem to accompany travel. We get very few colds around our house because we combat any signs of a cold by starting the Wellness Formula regimen -- and if we don't catch it soon enough, Wellness Formula helps us recover more quickly. I was surprised that I got a better deal on Amazon than at our local stores. I initially looked for this on Amazon to send to our daughter at college.
5.0 - Great supplement
Recommend this supplement to anyone who has a comprised immune system. I have been taking them for the last year and have stayed healthy, no colds which I would normally get 2-3 per year. Still get slight allergy issues but no more sinus infections requiring antibiotics.
5.0 - Great for Fighting Colds
I purchase the Wellness Formula supplements because my sister and her husband swear by them. The package arrived timely, the price is excellent. I'm hoping the wellness said formula will keep me cold free thru the winter.
5.0 - LOVE IT!!!
Love! I work with kids 3-12 year olds and haven’t gotten sick since I’ve been taking this! Before I was taking this, I got strep and the cold probably about 10 times within 6 months! Definitely recommend!
4.0 - Good preventative
I take the Wellness Forumula daily in fall, winter, and spring. I have a young child in daycare and work in an office environment, and so I am constantly exposed to cold viruses. The Wellness Formula seems to help build my immunity defense, so I can fight off colds which I used to get a least once a month.

This product is simply amazing!! I've been taking it several years now at the first symptom of a cold. It seems to work as I barely get sick now. I have to warn you thought - it does leave a little bit of the nasty taste in my mouth if I take these on an empty stomach. I just have to make sure to take these with meals. Otherwise, this herbal formula works like a charm!
4.0 - Always have these on hand
Been taking these for years when I feel a cold coming on. If you catch it early enough, you can stop the cold from developing or getting worse.
5.0 - It helps me recover quicker than without taking and feel like having more energy
My boss first introduced me for immune system 2 years ago when I cauch cold. It helps me recover quicker than without taking and feel like having more energy. I'm not much into health stuff but my husband is. Now he loves this supplement too. Combining with other supplement he take this everyday. He also feed me same things he take. Before everyday I was tired and had headaches make me feel lazy t do anything. But now I feel so much energized able to finish daily routine without problems. I definitely keep buying for both of us. It is life changer for me.
5.0 - very good when used just before a cold comes on
Used this company for a long time, very good when used just before a cold comes on.....
5.0 - And this is the best price available
I have found that, taken at the first sign of a cold and as directed, this product works every time. And this is the best price available.
5.0 - Start taking this the moment you feel a cold or ...
Start taking this the moment you feel a cold or flu coming on, and most of the time you won't get sick, even when the rest of the household does. Smells awful--make sure you get the caps and not the pills.
5.0 - This is the BEST stuff!
This is the BEST stuff!! If I feel a slight sore throat, cold, or flu coming on I take 3 tablets morning and evening. I've found it best to take a maintenance dose in the winter of 2 tablets once a day. It totally boosts my immune system so I rarely, if ever, get sick. I've recommended it to many people and they all have the same positive results. It's on my "Subscribe and Save" list as I can't live without it, and the Amazon price is the best!

This really works to keep the colds away. If you take it at the first tickle of a cold. Don't wait.
5.0 - Health Supplement
My brother told me about this product and it seems to work. That is, I don't get colds as often or become really sick. I was looking to replenish my supply and ordered through Amazon.
5.0 - Pretty sure it works
For the past 4 years around the end of January and into February I would catch the latest variant of flu, cold, sniffles, chest cold or whatever happened to be floating by my terrible immune system. It seemed like it would start as allergies and then a virus would find me and send me off the edge. I would usually be home with a fever and feeling like death for 2 to 4 weeks. I tried Airborne and the like last year but it didn't do any good.
5.0 - Really prevents the beginning cold.
Helps me to keep colds away! If I feel I am getting sick I take this 5-6 a day and it sems like no more symptoms. Usually I take 1-2 daily
5.0 - Su-Z-Q-receptionist
I have used this product for about 2 years and have not missed any work due to illness. When I feel like I'm coming down with a cold, sore throat, head or chest congestion, etc., I immediately start taking these pills or capsules as directed. Usually by the 2nd day I'm fine and feeling normal again. I highly recommend this product!
5.0 - Five Stars
really works when you take it at first signs of cold
5.0 - Buying Nothing Else
I have tried a variety of different products to boost my immune system. I suffered from chronic sinus infections for years and since I have been taking these I haven't even got a cold. BUying this product for life.
5.0 - Five Stars
This is a staple at our house. We start taking them whenever a cold is trying to catch us.
5.0 - Five Stars
A must have for every family during the cold and flu season!
5.0 - Great Deterrent for Cold/Flu Misery
Very helpful and easy to take, with the first sign of possible cold or flu - I take the recommended dose for several days and often do not come down with the threatened misery as I do when not taking it. During the cold/flu season, I take one a day - and have been for many years. I swear by this product. Best if taking it regularly on the smallest dose recommended, and immediately increase to the highest dose recommended when symptoms warn of oncoming sore throat, itching ears, aches and common cold and flu symptoms.
5.0 - Colds Begone
Searching for products to aid our bodies in maintaining good health is always on my agenda. Wellness Formula works well for me. The product is not a panacea, but healthy eating and this supplement has kept away the colds
5.0 - Great preventative remedy
When I feel a cold coming on I take these as directed and have warded off the cold every time. Take them asap after the onset of early symptoms such as scratchy throat, fatigue, sneezing, etc., and you'll be so relieved to wake up symptom free. Sometimes you need a few doses to keep the cold from coming on. Together with Echinacea tea it's a winning combination.
5.0 - If you are like me and follow the holistic path to wellness
If you are like me and follow the holistic path to wellness, then you need to incorporate this into your every day regimen, especially during the cold/flu season. I have been taking this for years and have not gotten sick. It is amazing.
4.0 - Seems to work
I just started using this a few months ago. It seems to work. After a change in jobs and housing last year, I suddenly started getting sick all the time. Probably some combination of stress/sleep deprivation, environment, and exposure to people in closer quarters, but these things seem to do the trick. I went on a work trip where I was working 12 hour days and having so socialize for another 7 hours afterwards and these kept me from catching a cold I felt coming on. I recommend them.
5.0 - Great at keeping colds from fully developing.
This works great at keeping a cold at bay or lessening the overall severity. I start taking as soon as I start to feel the slightest bit off and it has completely worked for me. It doesn't work if you don't start taking early enough. Because it is herbal, you have to take a lot of capsules every few hours. I can always tell when it is getting to be time to take another dose. I have found that I need to eat something with the capsules or else my stomach bothers me. A few crackers with each dose does the trick.
5.0 - Best product I have ever used to ward off a ...
Best product I have ever used to ward off a cold or illness when I first start to feel one coming on. We have been using it for about 8 years now and helps every time!
5.0 - but work great.
Use this in combo with my Emergency every time I feel a cold coming on. Very large pills and they smell awful and taste the same if they sit in your mouth too ling, but work great.
5.0 - Five Stars
great product, really seems to make a cold go away faster
5.0 - A great blend of supplements.
This was recommend to me by a good friend who is a vitamin freak. These are an excellent blend of nutrients. I use it as a multi-vite and triple up if I feel a cold coming on. I do other specific supplements, and this is a great basic variety. It has so many things that most standard multi-vites don't do. It is a little smelly, but I don't let that bother me. They put a lot of good stuff in one pill. They are a reasonable size to swallow too.
5.0 - I felt like complete and utter crap Saturday
So I bought some of this from my local health food store upon their recommendation 3 days ago for a VERY severe cold that came on very quickly. Symptoms were fever, lethargy and very thick bright yellow nasal discharge. I wasn't feeling well on Friday, I felt like complete and utter crap Saturday. I started taking 3 pills, every three hours without fail on Saturday. By Saturday evening I noticed I was feeling a little bit better with every dose. By Sunday, I was feeling a WHOLE lot better but still sick. By this time I was also starting to get a congested cough which is typical. Here it is Monday, and though I called in to work today I must say I feel close to 100%. The cough would normally grab hold and not let go, is not that bad. Still a bit congested. But I *feel* good and can honestly say I am no longer sick.
5.0 - It works for me
I have used this for many years in cold and flu season and I can feel the difference quickly when I feel symptoms. Use as directed. A lot to swallow, but effective.
5.0 - I take this every day. Haven't been sick for over 12 months
After a horrible cold/sinus infection that lasted about 3 weeks, I decided to try and be a little more proactive. I found this on Amazon, and have been taking it every day since. My doctor says that most people get about 4 colds a year, and since taking this, i haven't gotten one. I'm not sure if it's coincidence, or if this really helps - but i'm not about to stop taking it and take chances.
5.0 - Works like magic.
Start this as soon as you find yourself thinking "I feel less than stellar; I wonder if I'm coming down with something?" It blasts everything from flu to strep throat right out of the arena. My husband and I swear by it. The only times it's failed to drive off whatever bug assails us is when we've either let the crud get too much of a toehold first or let ourselves get run down. Even then, it shortens the length of our colds, flu, or whatever by days. Expensive, but worth every penny. Vital to keep on hand during flu season!
5.0 - Miracle worker
This is the most wonderful stuff! Use it at the very first sign of a cold or flu & often you can stop it in it's tracks. Originally heard about it from a Barber friend and many of his customers & staff. I have also told many of my friends who now also swear by it. This Wellness Formula is amazing! Buying it online from Amazon.com let me buy more than twice the capsules for less than 1/2 the price of the local health food store!
5.0 - Take this at first signs of feeling run down from stress
I was recommended these many years ago by a health food store. Since then, I've even given them as Christmas gifts. My gifted friends and family swear by these, too. Whenever I start getting run down from my stress-filled job, I start taking them and then, when I feel better, I taper back off. They're the best for a flu or cold. Get them and try them. You won't regret it! Money well spent and best deals through Amazon.
5.0 - used it for many years and I highly recommend it during cold season

5.0 - EXCELLENT EXCELLENT PRODUCT
This is a staple in my medicine chest. At the very first sign of a cold etc, I start taking these and they "nip it in the bud". I now have all three of our adult children asking for them when they start to get sick. It shortens the duration and the severity of a cold or flu.

5.0 - A miracle in a bottle if you take them at first hint of symptoms
This stuff is amazing. Any sign of a cold or flu and I start popping these like candy. 80% of the time they seem to have taken care of my symptoms so that I don't get a full onset of a cold or flu. Of course these aren't miracle pills. If you take advanced precautions like doubling your dosage of vitamin C and take these vitamins with plenty of water, rest and reduce stress levels - you will have a fighting chance. Highly recommend this formulation, my family swears by it.
5.0 - I highly recommend this product
Wellness Formula keeps the winter colds away and it greatly reduces my spring and fall allergies as well. I highly recommend this product. It came securely packaged from the seller.
5.0 - Been relying on Wellness for about 25 years now!
A friend recommended Wellness to me some 25 years ago. I have depended on it to keep me flu free, cold free, healthy in general, and it's a total success. I have gone through flu epidemics at work and I'm the one that doesn't catch it. I recommend Wellness every chance I get. It works for me.
5.0 - WELLNESS FORMULA
I am a casting director. I meet, interview and shake hands with up to approximately 150 people per day. There are just so many times you can use Purell after shaking hands. Wellness Formula is the best......every day I simply follow the directions and take it in every season. An especially fine product for people who are prone to continual colds and allergy complaints.

The only thing that saves me and my family when we start to get a cold. Worth the investment.
5.0 - I highly recommend the product
My wife and I have been using this product for over a year and have found it to be quite effective at preventing the common cold if taken with the first indication of symptoms, and at reducing the severity of symptoms and the duration of the cold when taken after symptoms have set in. In reduced dosage it seems to help maintain general wellness. I highly recommend the product.

I always keep these on hand for when I get around someone sick to keep the germs away. Also use at first sign of a cold or not feeling well.
5.0 - Works, and much cheaper than whole foods!
I have had a really terrible immune system in the past, and I normally get sick several times a cold/flu season, last year I was sick the ENTIRE month of December with a cold, then bronchitis, almost to the point of pneumonia. I started taking these because I have an in home child care now, and I really can't AFFORD to get sick. I cannot tell you how this nips the sickness right in the bud. I am so convinced that I have begun taking 2 tablets a day so I just don't even get the inkling of being sick. I begun having cold/flu symptoms last Friday, tired, achy, freezing cold and shivery, and I downed six of these. Within three hours I had terrible garlic breath, but lost the foggy, achy, chilled feeling and felt at 100%. I really believe these played a huge part in that. This is a great value, and less than half the price of Whole Foods. I subscribed so my husband can start taking them too. Excited about my new immune system!

The absolute best natural remedy I've ever used for any time I feel a cold coming on. I haven't gotten sick in over 5 years because of this stuff. I swear by it and recommended it to my whole family.
4.0 - I think it works as I haven't caught a cold ...
I think it works as I haven't caught a cold since I started using it. There should be a warning not to take it before bedtime though, as it keeps me up for hours. I took some at 11 pm and it's now 3 am and I'm still wide awake. Note that I bought the bottle at a Whole Foods in CA so apparently it's a different formulation (and also much more expensive).
5.0 - Great product.
This product helps if you feel like you are coming down with cold symptoms. Also they give a maintenance dosage of 1-2 pills daily.
5.0 - Awesome formula that works to prevent illness
I first used this formula when on vacation in Juneau AK and thought I was getting a cold. Bought it in small store on main street as recommended by sales clerk. It worked wonders. No cold, no symptoms by evening. My daughter was getting sick so I gave her some that I had just received from Amazon and she said it was a miracle formula. She is a sales person and has customers who have told her to use Source Naturals Wellness Formula Herbal Defense also as they swear by it.
5.0 - Impressive product. I have been using it as a ...
Impressive product. I have been using it as a daily supplement and have averted many colds by taking the maximum dosage at the first sign of symptoms.
5.0 - Don't need 6 like the instructions state
They are literally magic. I just start feeling a cold coming and take 2 or three and it instantly goes away. Don't need 6 like the instructions state.
5.0 - Best immune system support!
Every time I feel like I am coming down with a cold, I pop 3 of these 3 times a day and I feel better within 24 hours. The trick is to use them the second you feel under the weather and not when you already would need antibiotics. If you are prone to get sick more often, I recommend taking these on the daily.
5.0 - Really works
I don't know if it's placebo or what but I was getting a cold 1-2x a month before I started taking this. I take two a day and have not been sick since. I take 4 if I feel something coming on and within 48 hours, I am ok. I am a fan of this product.
5.0 - CAN'T RECOMMEND THIS MORE - INCREDIBLE!
My daughter recommended this to me because I just couldn't get over a really bad cold - literally within a day, it was gone! It's a great one-a-day but if you feel something coming on or have something, take 3 - 3x a day with a little food. It's a miracle! wonderful wonderful and the seller shipped incredibly fast!
5.0 - Great supplement
Just about the only product that I noticed a positive difference when I took it; if you catch it early enough, it makes a cold go away or at least makes it much less severe.
5.0 - Great immune system booster
I haven't gotten a flu shot in two years, and have not gotten sick (not even a cold) since I started taking these. I usually take 4 capsules per day, and 6-8 on rare occasions when I feel I'm getting sick. A 6 capsule dose packs a mega dose of Vitamin C along with herbs and minerals that boost the immune system. I always make sure that I have a spare bottle at home and at work. I also know that Source Naturals has a great reputation in the supplement industry. I know this stuff works!
5.0 - Love the product
Love the product! On the first onset of illness I started taking for about a week and half. One I felt I was back to normal I continued to take fora week. Definitely felt a difference and shortened my cold.

5.0 - Best Immune Booster Ever!
I have absolutely sworn by this stuff for 20+ years now. And now I have my coworkers sold on it. Finally even sold my parents on it. Anytime a coworker or friend/family member around me is sick, I take it as a preventative measure. Or literally as soon as I start feeling something come on, like "out of the normal" tiredness, or the slightest sore throat, I immediately take it, then rest, then wake up feeling 100%! Works practically every time! WF has prevented me from getting so many colds over the years. I used to keep track of how many colds it has stopped me from getting, but I stopped counting after 25 times. Just know that WF is the best stuff out there! Wayyyy better than Emergen-C or AirBorne. It has the ingredients they have plus a lot more good immune-booster stuff!
5.0 - Fantastic Product!
Amazing product. I use it daily. Since I started using it, I've had no issues with colds or sickness. If I feel like something is coming on, I take the extreme dose and all is good. Great for flu season.

5.0 - Wellness Formula
My oldest son got me started on the Wellness Formula Herbal Defense Complex last fall when I came down with a terrible cold while on vacation. He told me to start taking the maximum recommended amount each day to help fight my cold symptoms & get well faster. I really think that taking the Wellness capsules seemed to help shorten the time it took me to get better from that cold. I have continued to take the daily recommended amount, along with my other daily vitamin supplements & prescription medicines, just to maintain better health. This June I got another cold and I increased the daily dosage to the maximum amount; this time the cold seemed to go away even faster than before! Hooray for Wellness Formula!!

Wellness keeps me in check and in balance resulting in a great healthy body. I swear by it.

5.0 - Body back in balance
Works very well at putting your body back in balance, especially after being sick with a cold. Only complaint is they tend to be hard to swallow. A bit on the BIG size. Other than that, I will reorder them and take the recommended 2 caps daily to stay in balance. If my students give me their "bugs" again, I'll up it to the recommended 12 caps a day, until the bugs (cold) is gone. Good product!
5.0 - Results
Wellness formula works many of the times I've used it. Start feeling stuffy and I double up on capsules---next day I feel normal. However, when a cold strikes, its there and nothing seems to help, including the Wellness Formula.
5.0 - Preventative health care
This product was recvommended to us by our older son. He and his friends have had great success using it to combat the affects of flu,colds,etc.
5.0 - The best cold season supplement
I buy this on a regular basis and always have an extra bottle in the house. This cuts a cold or even a flu in half for me.
5.0 - This is a great product!
Good brand. Great product. My naturopathic physician recommended this years ago - she was very quality aware and based her recommendations on both applied kinesiology and scientific research/evidence. We use it whenever we are beginning to feel under the weather or if we have been around others who have been sick. It is a great boost to your immune system. I have also seen it work wonders with people who were chronically sick (cold, flu, bronchitis, etc..... not other more serious conditions). My ND also recommended against using it a more than 1/2 of the days during any one year, so that it does not decrease it's effectiveness over time.
5.0 - Life saver!!! Must buy for traveling
They smell disgusting, but they will turn around a bad situation. Filled with tons of good stuff that can help lessen effects of a cold or prevent you from falling under.
5.0 - The wonder vitamin
I started using this after I got a slew of sicknesses earlier this year. I was hit with it all-- started with a cold, turned into a sinus infection, turned into bronchitis, then another sinus infection! April and May 2011 were consumed with sick for me. A friend of mine told me about Wellness Formula, so I started taking it to hopefully recover faster. (I was willing to try anything!) A serving size is 6 pills. When you see/smell these pills, swallowing 6 of them will appear impossible. I have yet to take 6 all at once. I just started taking one per day for a week, then two per day. I feel it really helped me recover from all my illnesses. Usually takes me a couple weeks to get over a sinus infection. After taking two per week I sprung back to life quicker than I ever have. Now I take one per day as a preventative, and if I feel icky I take two.
5.0 - Works to prevent and reduce colds!
This was recommended to me by a nurse when my wife had serious lung issues and I, who am in the public quite a bit, was in danger of catching my recurring and maddening seasonal cold. I have been taking it for a good ten months, taking a maintenance dosage just prior to my seasonal job and a full dosage when I feel that "scratch" at the back of my throat. I have yet to come down with a full-fledged cold. I may occasionally end up with draining sinuses and mild coughing sessions, but not a solid cold. As you can see by the capsule-count we order it in, it works for us; we hope it works for you.

My son plays basketball and volleyball at a highly competitive level, and takes four honors/AP classes at school. So he gets worn down, and he was always sick, always cold, cough...but since taking these he gets sick less than 1/2 as much as before, and when he does begin to feel something these wellness formula knock it out quickly. I also take them whenever I feel a cold coming on and boom, it's gone...
5.0 - Amazing stuff!
I purchased this product because I was feeling the first signs of a cold or flu coming on. I didn't take it until the next morning when I really had developed symptoms and felt like crap (body aches, headache, painful coughs, weakness and dizziness.) I then started taking it as the directions suggest for "imbalance": 3 tablets every 3 hours. When I woke the second morning, instead of feeling even worse, like my typical colds, I actually felt better. If I had been taking this all along, I'm sure I wouldn't have gotten sick at all. This is a must for your medicine cabinet and preventative routine! Very effective even at healing/curing!
5.0 - Works for me
I have been taking Wellness Formula on a daily basis for years. I use to get colds often and now even if I'm around sick people I don't get sick. This really helps boost your immune system. I love it.

Best product by far to fight colds/illness. Take as directed and you should be over the "icky" feeling in 2 days or less. Only really need to take 1-2 a day for maintenance if your diet isn't adequate. The price on here was excellent! For a 240 capsule bottle, Vitamin Shoppe usually sells for $40. Excellent price and product, would buy again.

5.0 - A great cold preventative
This product was introduced to me by my pastor's wife. She said to use it anytime you feel you could be getting sick. She takes it regularly during cold/flu season. I just use it when I get the sniffles. Works great to prevent colds and I'm sure it works on flu as well. If I get sick I am down for 3 weeks but now that I take Wellness Formula I rarely get a cold. The best price I have found has been Amazon.
5.0 - I started taking it in response to a weakened immune system and a bad head cold
I have used this product for a few years now (4) and would not want to be without it. I started taking it in response to a weakened immune system and a bad head cold.( a close friend recommended the product.) I followed the directions and took it 3 x a day (3 capsules at a time) Within 2 days, I was feeling significantly better and by the 3rd day I was completely well. I then started taking it to maintain a healthy immune system. (2 a day works well for me.) I have not been ill since I started taking this product 4 years ago. Because of my age (69) I do get an annual flu shot. I refuse to be without it. Works wonders for me.
5.0 - I take this every day as my multi and I ...
I take this every day as my multi and I take 6 twice a day when I feel a cold coming on. I swear by these pills. I don't get sick and If I do it's shortened. I use the kids' formula for my 3 year old and she is never sick.
5.0 - OUTSTANDING PRODUCT
This is a great product as long as you follow the proper dosage recommendation. I take this everyday so I can prevent any issues during this cold season.
5.0 - Helps fight colds
I use these every time I'm on the verge of sickness. It typically curbs the common cold!
5.0 - Continues too be useful.
I have been using this product for a number of years and while it doesn't cure flu or colds, it does seem to consistently decrease the length and depth of misery for me compared to not taking it at all. It seems to more effective if taken at the first sign of affliction. It lasts a long time since I only use it for the first few days when I'm coming down with something.
5.0 - My friend recommended I start taking this about four months ago
My friend recommended I start taking this about four months ago, as I was getting sick left and right from stress and exposure to other people who were sick. It had been recommended to her by multiple coworkers. So I took two pills twice a day when I was fighting off a cold that I knew was coming on, and then two days later, the cold that was impending just never came. I've been taking two pills daily for four months now, and have not gotten sick once, even with a house full of people with colds.
5.0 - ... ideal to keep you healthy and if you feel like a cold or other illness is coming on
These vitamins are ideal to keep you healthy and if you feel like a cold or other illness is coming on. It shortens the life of a cold and has helped our family tremendously from getting sick when others were around us.
5.0 - Five Stars
helps me fight colds etc
5.0 - Amazing boost for immunity
Amazing boost for immunity. Take at first sign of scratchy throat, active lymph glands or other signs of starting to fight a cold/flu. Usually symptoms just go away! Even when you think it's too late to reverse it, it has worked on numerous occasions. My patients and I both have the same experience. Take 1 per day in cold/flu season to avoid getting sick. Take with food to avoid irritating your stomach in the longterm--- has a lot of Vit C and garlic---strong, but potent and natural, and best of all, EFFECTIVE stuff!
5.0 - Best defense for a cold!
This is an absolute must have in your house! I take it as soon as I start to feel sick and it works so well at keeping me from getting sick! Can’t recommend it enough!
5.0 - Really works well in keeping me healthy. At the ...
Really works well in keeping me healthy. At the first sign of a cold, I start taking this and it often prevents the cold from coming on, or at least lessens the severity and length of it.
5.0 - This stuff is amazing!! I take it at the first sign ...
This stuff is amazing!! I take it at the first sign of a cold & the cold completely goes away, doesn't diminish, just goes completely away!!!
5.0 - I love this Wellness Formula!
I used to get sick at least once a month (terrible immune system!), but since taking 2 capsules daily - I rarely get sick! If I start to feel a cold coming on or everyone around me is sick, I load up on these pills to prevent that cold from developing. I recommend this formula to all my friends and family. No complaints whatsoever from me, very happy customer!
4.0 - My best friend during winter cold season
I buy these religiously during the winter season and (knocking on wood) so far so good -for years! I also buy them before traveling (especially air travel) and take the maintenance dosage to keep my immune system up. I highly recommend them. The only down side is having to take so many (minimum of 3 per day) and they are a bit pricey -but worth it.
5.0 - Miracle Cold Cure
This product is amazing. I highly recommend the capsule form but I wouldn't be without it.
5.0 - I swear by this stuff - always have a bottle on hand.
I am pretty convinced that this works - especially if I take it consistently for a few days at the very start of a cold. I didn't get sick for 5 years, possibly because I took a few tablets whenever I felt a cold coming on. Last spring I got the flu that was going around and I was horribly sick despite taking the tablets, but recovered fully in only three days. I used to take plain echinacea (for about 20 years) and Wellness Formula seems to be much more effective. Sure, might be a placebo effect, but I'm cool with that since I'm almost never sick!
5.0 - Love this stuff!
I always feel much better after taking this for a few days. I use it fro anything from colds to a preventive when I am stressed or under rested.
5.0 - Works Great
Keeps colds and flu at bay.
5.0 - Stops your cold in its Tracks!
I was truly skeptical, but a family friend swore by it. She warned me that it smelled pretty herbally strong, but that it's worth it to stop a cold dead in its tracks. Sure enough, it smelled pretty garlicky, but after taking 24-48 hours my cold was gone. I've used it ever since. Works best if you can take it as soon as you experience the onset of a cold, but I have taken it after the sore throat and body aches were in full effect and it still worked! This has saved myself and multiple friends from stopping our colds just before going on vacation. My only warnings are that it tastes very herbally and can give you gas, but its better than being sick and missing work or your vacation.
5.0 - It buffs up my immune system and helps me feel better and avoid more serious conditions
I've used this product for years and I swear by it. I have allergies and used to get sinus infections and feel generally run down by it. I take this product when I'm feeling a cold or allergies coming on. It buffs up my immune system and helps me feel better and avoid more serious conditions.
5.0 - Really feel like taking this clears up cold symptoms within a day ...
Really feel like taking this clears up cold symptoms within a day or two...I also take it daily as a multi-vitamin. Highly recommend adding this to your illness fighting regimen!
4.0 - no colds
have not had a cold in over a year
5.0 - cure all
I wasn't so much a believer but my cousin suggested these pills after I got a cold. I started taking them when I was already feeling better and then thought they didn't do much and stopped taking them altogether. Fast forward, and I caught a cold during the holidays. I figured it was worth a shot to hedge my bets and started taking the pills at the beginning of the worst day. What a difference! I felt SO much better by that evening and I felt much better throughout. Even though I'm taking half of the recommended dosage (6 pills every 3 hours seemed a bit overboard) and took only 3 pills in the evening and at night. If i forget to take them before bed, a nasty cough will wake me up and remind me to take my pills. I usually knock out and I noticed my cough is significantly reduced throughout the day if I remember to take them in the morning. They're incredible. I only took tylenol twice and have not had to take any other supplements or OTC cough syrup, etc... AMAZING.
5.0 - Wellness capsules are super helpful for making colds go away or at least less nasty
This is an awesome product. The capsule vesion is much better if you have a problem with the vitamin over smell or delicate tummy. I love the caps for these 2 reasons. If you start to feel a cold come on take extra for several days and it usually makes it go away if got quick enough or keep taking and will make the problem much less symptomatic. They work great for me swear by them. Also use one cap a day like a muli vitamin sometimes. Works on other things than cold issues but not quite as well. If i go visiting and some one has a cold i go home and start taking a preventative dose right away almost always works for me. Great stuff!
5.0 - No more colds
I started taking Wellness at the suggestion of a friend in 1999. I haven't had a single (that's not one) cold since. Not one. Before Wellness, I got the standard number of colds ... one or two a year.
5.0 - Five Stars
seriously don't go more than a couple days with out this stuff. keeps me from getting as many colds.
5.0 - Nice
Been taking this stuff on and off for several years and I have to say I keep going back to it. It will not cure the common cold, but it will shorten the duration and intensity of the misery
5.0 - Keeps us well!
We have to work hard to keep in good Heath with two little ones in school and my partner working in a facility that has a lot of people coming in and out. We are exposed to everything. There is a huge difference in our ability to ward off the colds and germs between when we do take our wellness and when we don't . Love this product
5.0 - Take early
This was highly recommended to me by my health oriented peers as really working. Take at first sign of cold.
5.0 - Highly effective, with zero side effects
Competitively priced, with zero side effects. Also highly effective. They’re great for warding off an oncoming cold, or shortening one you already have.
5.0 - Take this and stay well!
This is my family’s “go to” when we are exposed to the flu and colds. If you take it at the first sign that you MIGHT be getting sick, it will help you fight it. Follow the directions and STAY WELL! Offices should carry this for anyone that wants to take it to avoid getting sick. It really works! I didn’t love the taste of the tablets and the capsules fixed that concern completely. Eat first and drink lots of water. Thank you for Wellness Formula!
5.0 - Absolute must for your medicine cabinet
This is something that you'll never find me without... This stuff works so well! As soon as I feel a cold coming on or I'm around someone who is sick I also start to take this and it keeps me healthy. I now use it daily and not only when I feel sick. I recommend taking it with food. They don't smell great, you can really smell the garlic, but it's worth it.
5.0 - Nice wellness product
Have used these for many years. It was one of the only products that finally got rid of my horrible cold. I use it as daily wellness just so I don't get colds. Seems to work for me and I will stick with it until it doesn't.
5.0 - This product really works!
I have been using this product for over 15 years. At the first inclination where I feel a cold or sore throat coming on, I take 5 capsules to build up my immune system, then continue taking 5 capsules each day for the next few days. I don't say this will work for everyone, but for me, I have found either the cold never materializes or it's gone in a couple days. Same for a sore throat. The important thing to remember is, one must take these capsules at the first sign of illness. Once you've been sick for a few days, I have found to start taking these capsules does not have the same positive effects as taking them before the illness sets in.

This supplement really helps in lessening the effects of a cold. Take it when you feel that you are starting to come down with something.
5.0 - this thing works for me
I don't serious flu anymore. Don't know if it's the propolis or sambucus that is in here but this thing works better Tamiflu for me. The anti viral and anti biotic qualities of this supplement are incredible: works on ear infection, cuts, cold sores, pink eye, and obviously common cold and flue. Perhaps FDA needs to regulate this...

I have been working on cruise ships in January for the past 5 years. This is the first year that I did not get a cold and cough on the ship. Not sure why I did not get sick this year other than I was taking 12 Wellness Formula pills a day.

I've been using this product for years and highly recommmend it. If you start to feel the start of cold coming on take this product. I tell everyone about it! They should call me and I could sell it for them!
5.0 - Awesome stuff. Natural and helps your body do what ...
Everyone should have a bottle of this in their house to take at the first sign of a cold. It is one of my go to's now at onset of cold. Awesome stuff. Natural and helps your body do what it does best. Nuff said....
5.0 - excellent immune system supplement
excellent immune system supplement. It works really good, I gave it to my child and it helped him a lot. He got a bad cold and I started giving him the caps and within a couple of days he was healthy again. Just drink them with lots of water so they go down all the way or you could start burping them and the taste of the formula is not good.
5.0 - Love this stuff!
Just love this stuff! It actually works and I've recommended it to many friends. Even if you take it after you start with a cold it will lessen the severity.
5.0 - Great to ward off colds
Great to ward off colds. Also, like that if you do get a cold you can add more pills to make it go away quicker, which really works.
5.0 - When ever you feel the first sign of a cough ...
When ever you feel the first sign of a cough, cold, sore throat, take these for a day, or two and honestly the symptoms are gone.
5.0 - Absolutely amazing. I have a horrible immune system and
Absolutely amazing. I have a horrible immune system and, especially in winter, get sick all the time. I take this at the first sign of any cold and feel better the next day. The only thing I don't like is that the serving size is 6 pills when you feel like you're coming down with something and 4 for maintenance. I also have a problem with capsules opening in my esophagus because they didn't go all the way down and boy do these ones hurt if they open in your throat. Definitely take these with food so this doesn't happen to you.
5.0 - Aptly Named Helps the Immune System
I've not gotten sick since I started using this, (4 a day), about 6 months ago. Got through the flu season and seem to be resistant to those bad 2 week colds that come around every now and then. I go to meetings and mingle with many people in small rooms about 4 times a week, so I am exposed to whatever is the illness du jour at the time.
5.0 - It works great a long time customer of this produce great for the flu and cold season
I have been using this produce for a couple year now and it getting hard to found since where I was buying closed. I am glad I found it on line. We are not down with the flu or colds since we been taking this.
5.0 - Five Stars
Very helpful in alleviating colds and flu
5.0 - Source Naturals Wellness Forumula - Say Goodbye to Colds and Flu
I have never been this impressed with a supplement before. Source Naturals Wellness Formula can be taken year round for general wellness but most take it during the cold and flu season. I took a chance on this after reading every single review I could find on it both on Amazon.com and elsewhere and I am so happy that I did. Both my wife and I swear by this stuff and since we started taking it roughly two years ago neither one of us have been sick with a cold or the flu. We have three kids and they are always bringing home "bugs" from school. On top of that my wife is an R.N. and she is around sick people all day. With Source Naturals Wellness Formula we worry less about getting sick. Is it possible to get the flu or a cold while taking this? I imagine so but we have yet to get sick since taking this product.
5.0 - Five Stars
Great product I already feel better from a cold that I caught a few days ago!
5.0 - Beats a cold
I have used this product for several years and found if you take it as soon as you can (a few Sneezes) I use it. I found that it turns off the cold symptons very quickly and in a week you would not know I had any cold symptoms at all. This was recommended by a nurse practioner. Amazon had the best price and all stores do not carry the 240 capsule bottle.
5.0 - Stay WELL!!!
If you feel you are getting a common cold, scratchy throat, runny nose....begin right away and you will be amazed.
5.0 - Excellent Product
After success with the 90 count I opted to purchase a larger quantity and have been taking it to prevent colds, etc. Love it!
4.0 - SHORTEST COLD EVER!
I was recently scheduled for surgery and a cold is something they don't want you to have at surgery time. I pulled out this wellness formula and started taking it. I do believe it was my shortest cold ever and I was good to go for surgery!
5.0 - Wonderful little pills!
Great deal on a great med. Take these just as you are getting sick (or when you kids come home with a cold) and you are safe. It will quickly knock the cold out of your system and you will be great by the next day.
5.0 - Works great!
Usually purchase my Wellness Formula at the local health store. Was great to be able to buy it at Amazon for a cheaper price. The Wellness Formula is the best product I've found for helping stop a cold in it's tracks
5.0 - This stuff is great for colds...
I used this product years ago and found if I felt a cold or flu coming on I would start taking it and found the symtomes were much less severe. I couln't find this in local stores, but l am glad I found it again....
5.0 - Wellness Formula is a great immune system booster!
I have put so many people onto this amazing supplement. I was first introduced to this supplement by a good friend whose husband had a bone marrow transplant and she wanted to make sure he was protected. She recommended that at the first sign of a cold, I take four capsules every four hours until symptoms subside. I did so when I felt a tickle in my throat and the onset of a cold coming on. This supplement knocked the cold out of my system before it took hold. A number of co-workers swear by the Wellness Formula now. Each capsule has 1300mg of Vit C, in addition to other herbal ingredients so it packs a punch. And the ingredients are water soluble so whatever your body doesn't use, gets flushed out. This can also be taken as a supplement every day for immune system reinforcement.
5.0 - News From A Chronic Common Cold Girl
I have a long standing history of being the "sick girl," I would often carry around a box of tissues because I would always have a cold. So when I started a job working in the ER I was concerned that I would be getting sick quite frequently so I bought these. I have been working there for a couple months so far and have yet to get sick! Despite what other people may be saying about this, it still does a great job of boosting the immune system. I haven't changed anything in my diet except for these and I am so happy I bought them!
4.0 - Works so far.
Not sure of how this works except I haven't gotten a cold since buying this and I have no ill effects from taking it. And somehow just thinking that it may be working is certainly giving me peace of mind. I will try to repost a review if/when I do catch something.
5.0 - Reluctant Believer
I had taken these a few years ago before I had children and then stopped while pregnant. They got rearranged in the bathroom and I forgot all about them until a few months ago. I just had my second baby and the first one, while I love her dearly, is a germ bucket and brings home every cold she comes in contact with. Now that I have a newborn, I needed to stay healthy. So, I started taking these again just to see. So far this year my husband has had three colds, and I have not been sick at all. I take one pill in the morning and one at night, not nearly what the recommended dosage is on the bottle. When I do start to feel something coming on, a slight cough or runny nose, I double the dose to two pills, twice a day, and I haven't had anything develop past that first day of feeling slightly off. I have to say, I"m a believer! I think these are great!
5.0 - Great for colds and boosting immune system
Whenever I get sick I take these continuously throughout the day (every 1-2 hrs) and I'm fine within 24-48 hrs! Highly recommended. Amazon gives a great deal on the 240 capsules bottle.
5.0 - Great Product! Worth every penny
This product works especially well when you have that slight tingle in your throat and it's probably going to turn into a full blown cold/flu...the bottle says to take 6 pills=one serving size. I really really do feel like it gets you out of the woods. It doesn't seem to work if you are already full blown sick. Every one of my family members uses this product..It's worth every penny...about $20 to be exact..they carry it at my local Sprouts.
5.0 - Five Stars
It's a life saver. It keeps me from getting colds - ever.
5.0 - Works!
Use this all the time when I feel like I have a cold coming on or everyone around me is sick. 95% of the time it allows me to ward off whatever is ailing me. In the winter I use it as a daily supplement and I haven't been sick with colds like in past years. By the way, I teach so, to me, this is a miracle!
5.0 - A pharmacist introduced me to this product.
I used to get colds and flu multiple times per year. I have fibromyalgia, which involves the immune system being low. In the three years I have been taking this, I haven't had a cold or the flu.
5.0 - If you feel a sickness coming on try this first, you will be amazed.
Okay so my mom has told me about this stuff for years and I always heard her but wasn't convinced. Then last year our family was getting colds like all the time and I was desperate for help and mom my reminded me of this stuff so I thought what the heck lets give it a whirl, so I went out to the vitamin shoppe and bought some and gave it a try that night and by the next morning I was feeling way better than the night before normally I would be getting worse by that time but I was extremely surprised so pleasantly surprised that I actually ordered some on amazon to be sent to me every three months. Since then during cold season as a family we take elderberry syrup and if me or my husband feel something coming on we take this in conjunction to the elderberry syrup. Also this is not for kids so my kids have been taking the elderberry syrup and it has helped tremendously! I refer all my adult friends to this and their kids to elderberry syrup. It doesn't hurt to give it a try everyone's. Oldies are different but this has really helped me and my husband. Hope that helps in your decision, take care
5.0 - Really works
If you take this product just when you experience the first signs of a cold, your symptoms will probably be very mild. The trick is to keep taking it until all symptoms are gone.
5.0 - This stuff really works!!
I am a fairly healthy person so when I suggested this to my husband who gets sick every cold and flu season at least twice, he thought it was just another one of my "healthy" ideas. Well it was but it worked!! He started taking it immediately when he started getting sick and for the first time in years he managed through last year's season without getting sick. Last week he started having some symptoms and failed to take Wellness Formula and ended up getting sick again. I just ordered another 240 capsules of the stuff. I think he learned his lesson.
5.0 - They were recommended by my acupuncturist
They were recommended by my acupuncturist. I take them whenever I feel like am fighting off a bug. They seem to help me, hardly ever get sick and haven't had a cold in years.
5.0 - Great immune booster
Sources Naturals Wellness Formula is my go to herbal immune booster. If I'm traveling or going to be in crowds, I take the Wellness Formula beforehand to boost my immune system and protect me from picking up some nasty cold or other illness. It contains a great combination of herbs that keep you healthy. And, if you're definitely getting that cold, start taking this and it will shorter your illness. I'm not a doctor, but I do know that this product works great for me.
5.0 - Wellness Formula
Amazing preventative product. Works great. Take 1 a day, and take 3 at a time (2 to 3 times a day) if you feel you have the early signs of a cold.
5.0 - Good Immunity Support
This Wellness product helps my immune system. I take it when a feel a sinus infection/cold coming on. I have to take 6 pills for a few days, then I am better.
4.0 - Oh Yes it Works
Okay, so this stuff smells pretty bad...but these gel caps are better than the pressed pills since you do not taste this stuff in a gel cap. I have tried the liquid and the pressed pills and could hardly swallow them because of the bitter taste. The truth is...I had a nagging cough from a business trip. A friend said that olive leaf extract was the next natural thing to try. He was right. My cough that I had for 6 weeks was gone the second day of taking this product! Any time I start to feel something coming on...this will be part of my 'go to' arsenal to stop or shorten a cold or other illness.
5.0 - Best feel-good formula out there!
If I feel a little under the weather - scratchy throat or feel like a cold is coming on I take 4-5 of these capsules and usually, if I've responded to how I feel quickly enough, I head off the poor feeling and recover nicely within the next day or so. Change of season sometimes affects me, kids, friends, co-workers sneezing, but no issue when I have my Wellness Formula close-at-hand!
5.0 - Good cold and flu defence.
I have used wellness formula for many years, and it has been very good in reducing the length of time of any call or flu symptoms that I have had.
4.0 - Good way to Support Immune System
I live in a harsh cold, dry climate 9 months out of the year, and when the flu hits the area, it is nasty and hard to get over. I started taking these wellness capsules once a day to maintain my immune system and then 3 times a day when I am starting to feel sick. I no longer am stuck on the couch for 3-4 days unable to move when the first wave of the flu season hits. These things are amazing, and much cheaper on Amazon then in my local health food store. Will continue to purchase through Amazon.
5.0 - Miracle pill
Best product for staving off a cold. As soon as I start to feel under the weather, I load up on these for a few days. Works like a charm!
5.0 - good stuff
I take 2 daily for maintenance. anytime I feel something coming on or a little out of kilter, I take 3 then rinse my nasal w/ saline and take 3 more when I go to bed. I haven't been sick in nearly 2 years. note that I used to get 2 to 3 sinus infections/colds a year
5.0 - Ward Off Colds and Flu
Order for my Mother, she loves this formula. She swears it helps ward off flu and colds and if by chance she feels like she may be getting something, says this supplement helps to knock it out quickly.
5.0 - Healthy as can be!
Since I started incorporating this product into my vitamin regimen, I haven't felt more protected with all the other sick people around me or gotten over my sinus infections so quickly. To protect myself from others and boost my immune system, I take 1 or 2 of these morning and night. If I'm stressed, feeling like I'm getting a cold or sinus infection, or I'm around a lot of sick people, I take 3 of these at least twice a day, sometimes 3 times a day. These work wonders and are a great bargain if you subscribe.
5.0 - Always keep this 'on-hand.'
Take two of these each morning and more if you think you're catching a cold or sore throat. It really helps and I have more energy.
5.0 - Source Naturals Wellness Formula Caps 240
GREAT for IMMUNITY especially during cold months!
5.0 - Game Changer! They reverse colds!
This pills are MAGIC! I gotten chills and the beginning stages of a sore throat at least three times this winter, at the start of my symptoms I took these and I didn't end up sick once! These really work.
5.0 - Wellness Formula is my go to supplement
Great deal! Love this product and this seller made it easy. The Wellness Formula is the one supplement that has always helped me to not get sick or get well fast. A must for cold and flu season.
5.0 - I have fended off sore throats, colds and flu ...
I have fended off sore throats, colds and flu bu taking these at the onset. For me they are an addition to another vitamin regime that I am on, but when I start feeling something come on...I overdose on these and BAM***** Gone with the germs!
5.0 - Not a miracle drug, but darn close!
My go to pill whenever I do not feel great. If I feel any sickness coming on, mostly flu, cold, sore throat, allergies. I will amp up the amount of Wellness formula, instead of 2-4 pills a day, I take the recommended 6 pills every 3 hours and it knocks it right out. I usually end up with colds that last several weeks. I have always been like this since I can remember, I am 33 now. Since I discovered Wellness Formula my colds last no more than a day! I have turned several of my friends on to it as well. Almost half price on Amazon as opposed to locally!
5.0 - Take it before any cold symptom.
Wellness Formula works like magic for me. I always take it before I feel sick or cold, and I can feel it helps to boost my immune system to defend common cold.

I've been using this product for several years when I catch a cold. This product works very well. If the cold is not warded off entirely (one needs to attack the cold at the very earliest symptoms), then by following the directions the cold is reduced to 3 days vice the normal two weeks!
5.0 - Five Stars

5.0 - Five Stars
Best product for getting thru cold, flu's, etc and staying healthy.
5.0 - This stuff really works
Been taking this for several years now, and the number and severity of colds has greatly diminished. The trick is to get started at the first sign of symptoms, or even sooner if you know you've been exposed by a snotty nosed person. I find that I don't need to take the amount prescribed, cutting back to a couple of capsules every few hours seems to do the trick for me. Worth their weight in gold!

Really works. I took it when I was sick with a cold and it help me feel better sooner. I also took it as a prevention when I felt a cold coming on and I didn't get sick...
4.0 - Good Stuff
A coworker gave me some in the original pill form after explaining i had been fighting a cold for 2 days. I took 6 that day and 3 the next morning and by midday the cold was gone. So i purchased the capsule version, because they're smaller. I do think these work just as well (i have a toddler and have not caught a cold since taking) but i do think the original pill form is slightly better. I will be purchasing those next time.
5.0 - Five Stars
These are LIFE SAVERS during cold and flu season.
5.0 - WELLNESS indeed! Highly recommend for lessening severity and duration of colds.
Always my go to for whenever I feel something coming on. Greatly lessens the severity of the bug I've caught and I always carry a bottle with me if I'm traveling for a longer period of time. Essential!!! I experience some garlicy aftertaste, but I love garlic and eat a lot of it anyways.
5.0 - It's a miracle and it truly works
I reach for this product immediately when I feel an imbalance, i.e., sore throat...headache. Whatever your symptoms, head for this product ASAP and it will make small tracks out of what could have been a giant. Best used only for times you have the start of cold or flu symptoms....it really works and I've never been let down in the many years I have used it.
5.0 - This stuff is magical
I have never been a believer in herbal supplements. I am completely skeptical of anything that is not prescribed and proven by the FDA. This product, however, is unbelievable. I was getting a cold every few months before religiously taking this product every day. Since then, I have yet to be sick and I'm going on 6 months now. Every time I feel a little tinge of something coming on I pop 6-9 pills over the course of a day and BOOM it's gone!! How does this work so effectively? I don't know! I don't care...it just works. I am so glad this product is on the market. It works. Period.
4.0 - Recommend to everyone
Rated a 4 just cause it normally keeps my immune system at its peak & keeps cold sores away. But not this time. Idk what triggered the rash on my chin to the rash on my lip but i keep takin this product along with other things & normally cold sore/cold sore symptoms would vanish with few hours or day but its been stickin around for almost 2 weeks now. Idk what it is, maybe i was just long over due for a cold sore. Just got the rash no cold sore. Soo imma keep at it with combo of hylands cold sore tablets, peaceful mountain cold sore rescue,1000 lysine mg, & wellness formula. Fingers crossed itll be gone sooner than later
5.0 - Great for helping kick the crud!
I started taking this product a few years ago when my whole family was stricken with H1N1. I personally think it helped shorten the length of time we were sick with it. Now my husband and I keep it around just in case. Whenever one of us is feeling something coming, we start taking it. We either end up with a shorter cold or nothing at all. I highly recommend this.
5.0 - I love this
It is my go to when I need to fight off a cold or whatever bug may be around. It is so worth buying and has kept away the flu and other cold symptoms.
5.0 - I recommend it
It is a great product. For these times of constant colds the whole family uses it!! The capsules are much easier to swallow than the tablets.
5.0 - Five Stars
Start taking this at the first sign of a cold-- this stuff is the best
5.0 - Okay, so this does work.
My chiropractor recommended this to me as a way to boost my immune system. I have definitely taken it consistently and as directed at the very hint of a cold, and I've ended up getting sinus infections and bronchitis just as usual over the previous months. Instead of this, I would recommend drinking a lot of water, taking a multivitamin, eating a healthy diet, getting plenty of sleep, and eliminating as much stress from your life as possible. That'll probably be the real trick to health -- not just a weird smelling little pill.
5.0 - Pretty amazing really
I started taking two of these 5 days a week one year ago, I have not been sick ONE time since. No cold, no anything!! even through the cold winter. Pretty amazing really!!!
5.0 - Fending off illness
I travel almost every week for work. Long international flights mean breathing recycled air for 12+ hours. I used to get sick every single time I flew those long flights (i.e. I was never truly healthy). But ever since a friend recommended Wellness Formula (and Wellness Fizz) I haven't had a single cold, flu, or illness. Since the Wellness Formula is the only thing I changed, I attribute my new found health to taking these wonder pills.
5.0 - Works fast and well!
I just use this at the hint of a cold and it works wonders, seriously. I take 6 capsules initially and then the next day or two 3 capsules and the cold never really manifests any further. Simple, I like simple :)
5.0 - If you take this at the earliest possible point in ...
If you take this at the earliest possible point in time of feeling sick, it stops it. Must follow directions and must be done at the first hint of a cold. Don't bother taking it if you miss this early window.
5.0 - This stuff is magic
I have been using the wellness formula for YEARS. I take it right when I feel something coming on and continue until whatever it was is gone. Usually it prevents the cold or whatever from taking full effect. I only get sick about once a year because of this stuff! Very glad they made it in capsule form, the tablets were pretty disgusting and hard to swallow. These are no problem to take! Love.
5.0 - Cold relief and year-round wellness support
This product requires you to take 6 capsules twice daily at the onset of illness, and while that seems like a lot, it makes a world of difference. There's no need for cold medicines with this supplement, and my symptoms nearly disappeared as long as I continued to take the supplements as instructed.
5.0 - Good Product
Good product, I use it anytime I feel a cold coming on.
5.0 - Great Stuff!
I swear by this stuff during cold and flu season! I take 2 a day and stay pretty healthy. If I do start to feel sick I bump them up to taking 8 total and that usually works and I feel better the next day.
5.0 - Always Liked "Wellness" and this was a good price.
We've taken Wellness for years and they really do seem to cut the time of a cold or flu... There are two "types" of the same formula, tablet and capsule. The tablet are more concentrated, the capsule is easier to take. As the number you take is different, and as the number of "pills" in the various size bottles is different, you may have to do some math to find the best deal... In any case, which ever you prefer, we think it's a good idea to get them before you need them, just in case you get caught in a group of coughers and sneezers...
5.0 - A Great Product!
I've taken Wellness Formula over thirty years & will continue taking it as long as it's available. It has kept me from getting the flu and catching colds. A friend told me about it and I was skeptical when she told me the same thing... but, I swear by it!
5.0 - Can't be without this!
BEST product for warding off colds. Always good to have on hand during cold and flu season. Helps make the season merry!
5.0 - Simply Amazed by the effectiveness of this product
My husband and I use this product religiously whenever either of us feels even the slightest clue of impending illness. In fact since we started using this product a few years ago both of us have managed to avoid the cold and flu. However it does not help with allergies, I guess nothing's perfect, but this is pretty close. Keep up the good work and we'll keep buying more.
5.0 - Great product
I take this stuff when I am sick and never get a secondary infection and it shortans the cold.
5.0 - It really works!!!
I rarely write reviews....this has worked for me twice during the horrible cold & flu season. Discovered it by random Chance. Started takin 6 pills twice/day when symptoms first surfaced & within a day I was cold free!!!! Everyone should have this on hand!
5.0 - Really works!
I was pleasantly surprised by the effectiveness of Wellness Formula twice. The first time, I was well into cold symptoms--chills, headache, runny nose--when I began the dosing regimen. It seemed to make my sinuses drain more and faster immediately, and I was symptom free after just 3 days. The second instance, I started taking right when I had that prickly feeling in my throat, and it went away within 12 hours. I'm now a fan, and will be keeping a bottle at the ready when colds begin going around!
5.0 - Works for me!
I've been using these wellness supplements for a few years now, and besides the terrible aftertaste I swear by their effectiveness. When everyone around me starts getting nasty colds I'm usually getting asked how i've not caught it yet. Not a cure all but they seem to really help me.
5.0 - Great product
Great product so far no flu or colds
5.0 - Cures a Common Cold
I highly recommend this product. My office manager has it on hand for the day you get to work and you feel a cold coming on. Take as directed and after a couple hours the sniffles are gone.
5.0 - Five Stars
Cold/Flu Seasons Best Defense Ever
5.0 - It actually works
At the first sign of an oncoming cold, taking mega-doses of Wellness Formula usually knocks it down within a day, and otherwise reduces the symptoms.
5.0 - I have not gotten sick yet
I never get a flu shot. I have Fibromyalgia and cancer. My husband has an auto immune disease. He doesn't get flu shots either. He volunteers at the Fire Dept and I volunteer at a nursing home, so we are around germs. This is my second bottle. We've made it thru flu and cold season. My husband did get sick but it was not nearly as severe as it could have been. I stared to get it, then took extra doses and I was better in two days. I will continue to take these as long as I'm living.
5.0 - Excellent, a little pricey but super good to keep on hand.
Excellent if you use immediately when you feel strange, a cold coming on or your immune system compromised. I keep this on hand at all times. I gave it a 4 because it's not going to completely ward off illness 100% of the time but it can certainly stop it from going further or minimize the severity.
5.0 - Really helps
I have used this when a cold seems to coming on and used it when traveling internationally to help avoid weird bugs on plane and during travel.
4.0 - Great Product!
Great product that seems to help when you have a cold. As soon as my allergies or the sniffles start I take the Wellness Formula.
5.0 - Great product
I first started using Welness Formula a couple of years ago. Being from New England and working in an office environment I catch cold constantly in winter. It was recommended to me by the sales staff in Whole Foods. I got the tab version, not the capsules. You need to take 3 caps every 3 hours and they smell strong, very strong. Last year I had to go to a business trip in the middle of winter and I was feeling terribly sick, during the trip the only thing that made me continue was my Welness Formula. It definitely makes you feel much better within half an hour. Of course you need to still rest and try to recover, but when you do not have the time to do that it gives you the strength to continue your day. I love it and I recommend it all the time to my friends and coworkers.
5.0 - This is probably the best product I have ever found that truly stands up ...
This is probably the best product I have ever found that truly stands up to what it promises. If I feel a little sluggish or think I am coming down with the flu or cold I increase the number I take and 1 or 2 days later I am well again. I love this product.
5.0 - Have loved and used this product for years!
I have been using this product for at least 15 years now taking 2 a day. Very rarely do I get a cold (may have gotten 2-3 during that time and they were extremely mild) and that was even with daily commuting to NYC and being around people sneezing on you, etc. If I felt I might be getting a cold I would just bump up the dosage to around 6 a day and that seemed to really help. Would recommend this to everyone!
5.0 - great for allergies and colds
bought this formula for years, always works
5.0 - these are my good to get better fast solution
Wellness Formula rocks! Whenever I start to feel a flu or cold hitting, I start taking these and typically within 12 hours have knocked it out of my system. Really nothing else like it. These have save me during finals, scuba trips, vacations and important business trips. I always add them to my travel bags and can't recommend them highly enough.
5.0 - Five Stars
I use this product every day for maintenance and haven't had a cold in months.
4.0 - It works!
This was recommended to me by my supervisor. I tried it last year and never caught a cold. (I work out side in the freezing wind and cold) I just got back from vacation, I've been using it and feel great!
4.0 - Works, but the capsules give me heartburn.
I found this product initially at the local healthfood store after being sick on and off for a month and a half (our clients don't wash their hands.. yuck). It worked so well. I decided to see if I could find a better price online, and this is a great price. However.. the ones I got at the health food store were tablets, not capsules, and the dose was 3 instead of 6. Fine, I don't mind taking a bunch of capsules at once. However, about 75% of the time I take this stuff, it gives me pretty wicked heartburn for a solid hour or so. Major pain, but I'll take it over getting sick. It definitely keeps me from catching the colds and flus that are in constant rotation at my job.
5.0 - Excellent product
Been taking this product for years--one a day and up the dosage per product's instructions if I think a cold or some other illness might be starting. Haven't been sick with a cold or sore throat or similar in a long time. Prior to getting on a regular regimen of taking wellness formula, I was frequently getting sick. My two adult children love this product also.
5.0 - simply amazing
you wont believe how miraculous this product is until you try it. i have been searching for years for a supplement that really boosts your immune system....nothing ever helped. somebody recommended wellness formula to me. i was very skeptical but tried it...and i have never been sick even once since. the good thing is that you dont even need to take this regularly...just take a few megadoses when you feel you are getting sick...the effect is virtually instant. i tend to get pretty nasty cough when i catch a cold...so recently my throat was already itchy, i felt tired and i had a cough...i took 10 tablets over the course of a day...the next morning, EVERYTHING was gone!
5.0 - PERFECT!! I have Never had a product work ...
PERFECT!! I have Never had a product work in 24 hours before. It is RARE for it to take 48 hours. I don't know another product that will END flue, cold, etc. WITH SUCH SPEED!! And they advertise PLENTY (but you never see ads for WELLNESS, and IT does work!!)
5.0 - My Go To Immune Booster
I read about this product a year ago as a great way to avoid or shorten a cold. I was skeptical at first but I now know it really works. I have used this when I have felt a cold coming on ad managed to stop it on two separate occasions. I have also used this once when I had the flu and even though I still had flu symptoms they were a lot milder than usual. My only complaint is that the dosing is intense. They expect you to swallow 6 pills several times a day when you are sick or exposed to an illness! I usually take 6 or 12 (if I'm up for it) a day and I found even that makes a huge difference.
5.0 - the only supplements anyone would ever need
I don't believe in taking many pills, but these capsules are a game changer. These are the only supplements anyone would ever need. I started taking them a couple of years ago and haven't been sick from colds ever since. Definitely recommend them.
5.0 - Magic
Magic. This saves lives. Changes lives. Is life. Seriously. I hate getting sick and this prevents colds/flus, boosts my immune system and is the best thing since anything.
5.0 - Source Naturals Wellness Formula
Start taking these to prepare my immune system for the winter. Hopefully no colds this year.
4.0 - Cold be gone!
Excellent. use in conjunction with Umcka cold care at the first sign of a cold - gone in 2-3 days.
5.0 - you will not be disappointed!! Take at first sign of cold and ...
Swear by this stuff, you will not be disappointed!! Take at first sign of cold and sore throat, then hop into bed!!
5.0 - Great to keep colds and the flu to a minimum!
I love to take these when I start not feeling quite right. If I can do this right away it can stop, or at least shorten the time I'm down sick with the flu or cold. These Source Natural Wellness Capsule go down so easy since they are capsules, and I make sure to keep drinking water or tea for a while after I take them since it seems to help it process and absorb better. There are no side effects that come with it as in other cold medications so you won't get drowsy. I definitely can recommend Source Wellness Capsules for a natural way to try to keep from getting sick.
5.0 - Great supplements!
As soon as someone in our house feels a cold coming on, we take this and oregano oil. It usually takes care of it before it becomes a major infection. If someone does really get sick, this helps get over it quicker. Great supplements!
5.0 - I always keep this in my cold medicine collection.
I have this product handy so that when I feel a cold coming on, I just reach for it. Along with Zicam or zinc, I take 4 of these every four hours and I'm cold, congestion free. It's a wonder. I can't imagine how I tolerated all those colds before now. This make like a little more tolerable when you are without a cold!
5.0 - I hate when I run out
Must have while my kids are in school. Take at the fist sign of a cold and you can avoid getting it. I hate when I run out. Avoid getting one stuck in your throat as it taste awful to burp.
5.0 - Five Stars
A friend introduced me to this and I'm hooked. Keeps colds at bay!
5.0 - HEAD THE FLUE OFF AT THE PASS
THE MOMENT I START TO FEEL LIKE I AM COMING DOWN WITH THE FLUE OR A COLD (ITCHY THROAT, HEADACHE, MALAISE, ETC.) I START TAKING THE WELLNESS FORMULA BY SOURCE NATURALS. IT WORKS EVERY TIME. I START TAKING 2 TABLETS EVERY 4 HOURS, AND USUALLY I NEVER GET A FULL BLOWN CASE OF THE FLUE. MY FRIENDS, WHO DON'T TAKE WELLNESSS, WILL SUFFER FOR 4-6 DAYS WITH SYMTOMS, WHILE I AM OVER IT IN A DAY OR TWO! I'VE BEEN USING THIS PRODUCT SINCE THE MID EIGHTIES,TRY IT AND SEE FOR YOURSELF.
5.0 - It works
I've never really taken nutritional supplements but last year when I was suffering from a cold, I was introduced to the Wellness Formula and after taking it for two days, I recovered. I thought it was a fluke so the next time I had symptoms of a cold coming on, I bought it and tried it again and it worked. Now, whenever I have symptoms of getting ill, I take it prophylactically and I haven't suffered from a cold yet. I've told others about it and they state the same. I'm not sure what's in this stuff and how it works, but it works.
5.0 - Five Stars
helps to combat cold virus
5.0 - Prevent sickness!
If I take 6 of these 3 to 4 times per day when I feel a cold or flu coming, it will fight it off!
5.0 - Works for me
I took the Wellness Formula for years and never got sick. I stopped taking it two years ago and started getting winter colds, a recurrence of allergies. Just started taking it again about 5 months ago and stayed well through the flu and cold season. Call it a placebo drug or what you will, I'll keep taking it.
5.0 - Magic pills
These wellness pills are kind of magic. There is a cold going around at work, so I started taking a few of these a day. My girlfriend got the cold and most of my colleagues, but I actually feel better than usual. Lots of B vitamins and other awesome herbals in these. My girlfriend also started taking them the day she started feeling bad, and the cold never hit her very hard. Also she seems to feel better about an hour after taking these. I highly recommend this product as a staple for your medicine cabinet!
5.0 - This stuff seriously is the best for fighting off illness
This stuff seriously is the best for fighting off illness. Whenever I start to feel like Im about to get sick. I pop the recommend dose for a few days and its gone. All natural. Seriously people should try it at least once this cold season.
5.0 - Great Suppliment Product for immune system
The is a great suppliment product to help strengthen your immune system & minimize cold and flu symptoms. I now take one daily as a vitamin suppliment and double-up when I feel my immune system getting week due to being exposed to others with colds and flu symptoms.
5.0 - Love it!
Love this. Used Cold Snap for years, but this is less expensive and works just as well.
5.0 - Been using this for years.
I make sure I have this in my medicine cabinet all year around, but mostly use it during cold season. I've been using it for years, and happy to get a good price on it here.
5.0 - I've been using this for years and it's AMAZING!
This supplement is truly worth every penny! I use it at the onset of a cold and never get sick. It's one of those items that I always have on-hand. I don't have any issues with the way they smell, however the pill is like a large vitamin. I take six pills 2x a day when I'm feeling sick and stop taking them either when my symptoms have passed or if once I'm no longer exposed to sick people. They also make a kids liquid version, which I give to my baby and also recommend. Can't say enough good things!
5.0 - The attributes of Wellness Formula
The title speaks for itself! Along with making sure one eats healthy foods and gets plenty of exercise and rest, this products helps insure one to avoild those nasty colds and viruses. If we do our part, Wellness will do its part. I have been taking this product for years and years. I recently discovered that Amazon carries it so I am ordering from them now.
5.0 - saved me from so many almost colds
This formula is awesome. Take it immediately when you start to feel the beginnings of illness and it works like a charm!
5.0 - Universe pills - somehow they work!
in our home, we refer to this as "universe pills" because of the picture of the galaxy on the bottle. My super skeptical husband and I both got sick right after the holidays and one of our semi-granola friends recommended this to us. As cold medicine either doesn't work, works only a short time, or makes us feel weird (Sudafed!), we decided to try it, and wow. We were both on the mend within 3 days, which was pretty surprising.
5.0 - I have used this product since 1999 and I still stand by it.
This product is my "go to" during winter months. I first learned of this product back in the 1990's when my mother was a pre school teacher. She swore by it after trying it for her first cold / flu season. I have since used this product as an immune defense / maintenance supplement. It has never failed. It works just as the instructions describe, and I have found that it will kill the length of a virus by half time. Meaning that if a cold usually takes 3-6 days to recover from symptoms; if you take wellness formula as directed during your imbalance, you will be clear nosed and snot free within 2-3 days.
5.0 - Wellness is as wellness should be
Taking one in the morning and one in the afternoon keeps the immune system strong. When I feel a cold coming on, I double the dose and haven't had a cold since taking this.
5.0 - Healthier Alternative Medication Proven With Us
Alternative medication- all are different, some work, some definitely do not. This particular OTC works. And work well it does with gradual result. My family doesn't take daily, but when we feel a cold or similar condition coming on, we begin to use, as instructed, (for seven days). Within two days, we begin to notice a difference and are already starting to feel better. By day four, we're almost back to our normal self but continue for another three days to finalize the result. I couldn't praise high enough although I would imagine this unique formula works as it does depending on one's chemistry. For our family's biologic's, Source Naturals Wellness Formula is extremely effective. The ingredients are certainly healthier for our bodies over other OTC medications available.
5.0 - Really DOES keep colds away
I have been using this product for 3 years. Following directions on the label, have reduced the frequency of colds from 3 or 4 a year to NONE. Recently discovered a much better price on Amazon than the previous supplier.
5.0 - Great Product- but you must take it correctly
Years ago this was recommended to me by a coworker when I worked outside at a local market. I had a terrible cold and she suggested I go buy this. I have used it ever since (that was 1997). At the first sign of a cold of any kind or flu like feelings, I take the recommended amount (six capsules- 3 times a day for several days) and drink lots of water and try to get as much sleep as possible. I also take 2 capsules a day during the winter cold/flu months. While everyone else has a cold that lasts for weeks, mine is gone in days. Try this stuff! It has worked very well for me over the years.
5.0 - I love this, no more colds.
I love this. I've been using it for a couple of years. I started taking it after getting serious colds. Since I started using it, I have not gotten sick. I subscribe to it and take 2 in the morning and two at night.
5.0 - great
When ever I feel a cold coming on I take these and it helps it from not coming or doesn't last as long.
5.0 - Excellent
I have used Wellness Formula for quite some time now and I can definitelly atest that it noticebly helps with helping at the onset of a cold or whenever I feel weak or about to get sick.
5.0 - Loved The Old Formula - New One Doesn't Work
I get ear infections very often. I've been on a cycle of antibiotics for almost a year. Whenever I catch a cold it goes into my ears. Just started a new job, and had that horrible sore throat. I panicked and knew I couldn't go on antibiotics again, they're weakening my whole immune system. My bottle was about 5 mos. old and the directions recommended that when you're sick to take 6 tablets every 3 hours (and I believe it recommended to wake up during the night). I did it, and it kicked it within a day or two! I'm so sold. But now I see the dosage has changed. I would love to know why.
5.0 - Awesome Product
This is an AWESOME product. I swear by this product's ability to raise the immune system and keep colds and flu at bay. I wouldn't be without it.
5.0 - A LIFE SAVER!!
We use Wellness whenever we catch a cold or are even around someone who has a cold. Often it is so potent that it gets rid of the cold before it sets in. You have to take a lot to boot the cold but, it often works so, it's worth it.
5.0 - Take whenever you are starting to not feel well
Take when you start to feel off and you will feel much better the next day. It works. I have avoided colds by taking this product.

Zinc: the only scientifically proven element to help reduce the duration of the common cold. The second you feel the tickle in the back of the throat, take 6 of these daily for 3 days. Take one daily for maintenance and be healthier. These capsules work wonders almost every time.
5.0 - Five Stars
I recommend to all my patients in cold and flu season!!
4.0 - They actually work most of the time
This product definetely works better than anything else I've tried. Zicam and Cold Eeze never did anything to shorten my colds and very rarely seemed to ward them off. Nature's Way Systemwell Ultimate Immunity didn't really work either. With the Wellness Formula I have been seeing results over a long period of time. Mind you, this isn't perfect, I have still gotten a cold now and then...but often they are less serious than the colds I used to get. Not every time, I did have a bad cold or two. The big thing I love about it is that SO many times I've felt myself getting sick. Chilled, a stinging in my throat, exhausted...you know how it is when you feel a cold coming. I take some of these as recommended and most of the time the cold is chased away. There really seems to be something to them. My only concern is that I've been getting newer bottles without Goldenseal in the ingrediants, so I've been buying that seperate when it used to be included. Bummer, but maybe a temporary shortage?
5.0 - No more miserable colds for our family!!
I used to get sick all the time. It was miserable, I was miserable & I was the one bringing the germs into the house & getting everyone else sick. I felt like a prisoner in my home every year during cold/flu season. I came across this product on Amazon & decided to give it a try & it has literally been life changing! The other reviewers detail how it's used so I won't reiterate that other then to say that I use a smaller dose as a preventative throughout the winter & then take the recommended dose when I feel a cold coming on. We keep a bottle in our cars, each bathroom, the kitchen, etc & I wish the kids could keep a bottle in their lockers at school! Thank you Source Naturals for this wonderful product. We have tried other products made by other companies but nothing compares to Wellness Formula.
5.0 - Awesome
I call these "Superman" tablets because they render me so much more invincible to colds/flu etc! Thanks for a great product!
5.0 - works miracles
I start taking this whenever I feel a cold or flu coming and I have not gotten sick in over 2 years! It is awesome.
5.0 - Quite Effective
This product has gotten me over many illnesses. I recently had a cold that was a bit more than this could kill, but overall I trust this product and have had great results both getting over illnesses and preventing them. Recommended.
5.0 - I don’t think it’s just placebo... I think this product really works!
My mom let me try some of hers a few years ago when I felt like I was getting a cold. I have been my own now since they really do seems to give me some natural feeling pep and possibly prevent mild colds. I also take these in times of stress when my immune system takes a hit and it seems to help!
5.0 - It is amazing!
This is our go to for fighting off colds in our house. It is amazing!
5.0 - Good to take at the first sign of catching something.
A friend suggested these capsules, and every time I think I’m coming down with something, cold or sore throat, I start taking these and the next morning I feel fine. However, my husband and I both had the flu from a cruise we were on. High fevers and felt terrible. We started taking these but they didn’t work once we were already sick.
4.0 - This works great for me, but capules stick in my lower throat
I've used Wellness for years, and I swear by it. I like to joke that it is my placebo of choice. When I feel the first hint of something coming on, I start taking it. I can usually stop the cold or flu in its tracks.
4.0 - Great Cure-All Product
I dealt with a cold for weeks and weeks on end and was sleeping, drinking fluids, etc. Nothing would stop it. I ordered this product after a suggestion from a friend and wala-gone. It's a natural way to end sickness and with all the nutrients, it'll help you knock out your sickness in no time.
5.0 - Five Stars
Product keeps colds from sprouting. Very helpful.
5.0 - Prevents ommon cold/flu
I've used this product for years. When I take it at the first signs of imbalance, it usually prevents colds/flu, even when I have been heavily exposed to others who are sick. It seems to alkalize my system.
5.0 - Immune System
This product has helped me immensely. I've had fewer colds and sinus infections since taking it.
5.0 - Price I paid on Amazon was better then Vitacost
I've been taking this for about 4 years now. It is a MUST whenever I catch cold/flu or my immune system is low! Price I paid on Amazon was better then Vitacost.
5.0 - Keeps those bugs away...
i tried by recommendation of local health food store, I don't have greatest immune system and this kept away colds and flu for a year....miraculous. i take one every day, more if i'm feeling stressed or buggy. take on full stomach.

I've been using this product for a while and swear by it…..I take the recommended daily maintenance dosage and at the onset of cold symptoms increase it as directed…My spouse has brought home a few colds over a couple years which I did not catch…did get some symptoms which disappeared….Once I did have a very mild cold for only a few days….I can't prove it's not coincidence , but the pattern has lasted such a long time , it can't be dismissed…I will continue to make the Wellness Formula part of my daily vitamin process…..
5.0 - Works Great For Me and High Quality Product
Been using and recommending this product for years to friends when they start to get sick, have everybody hooked during cold and flu season and as a preventive before traveling.
5.0 - Follow the directions on the bottle and you'll be set!
I've been using this stuff for a long time. If you start seeing early signs of a cold or flu, and you take 3 of these a few times a day, you'll be better by the next day. IT'S AMAZING! Follow the directions on the bottle!
5.0 - If you catch a cold coming on and can take ...
If you catch a cold coming on and can take this stuff right then it prevents the cold from happening at all but you have to take it right when you know something is coming on.
4.0 - Get well and stay well
Great product and helps cut the duration of colds and such, especially if you take it as soon as you think you're coming down with something, or others around you are so you can hopefully keep from getting sick. Even take as a daily supplement. Admittedly they've changed things at some point over the past several years, it isn't as potent, but still works.
5.0 - Enormous pills with good ingredients
Amazon has a great price on these. I've been taking these off and on for the last couple of years and they seem to help me get over an illness quicker (could be psychological, but research shows that most of the ingredients are known to help with fighting the common cold, such as Vitamin C, etc.). Be forewarned that these are giant pills (about 3/4" to 1" long) and they are very fragrant (to me it is like an olive smell). I am a repeat customer for these.
5.0 - Great for a cold
I keep this product in stock to help prevent colds. I've also taken this product after having gotten a cold, and my body healed much faster that I expected. I actually started using this products from recommendations from 2 other friends who use it.
5.0 - Almost a vacin!
Fabulous product! During all my live, I had problems with my immunity. After using Wellnes Formula, I feel better and more: I got no cold even my husband had to take antibiotics to overtake his. It worths each dollar!
4.0 - Great Immune System, taste okay...
I love these, cause the ingredients, they really boost your immune up. I notice when my kids get sick, they recover fast or it doesn't hit them really bad. Also they are good for keeping the colds at bay. My kids are not too crazy about the taste. they are too big as well.
5.0 - Five Stars
Great product to use especially when you are coming down with a cold etc.
4.0 - Great formula to stay healthy
I take this product during the cold/flu season. If I start to feel sick I take a couple every 3-4 hours. It always helps me feel better. It contains all the best immune boosters.
5.0 - Keeps illness from getting really bad
I have been taking this product for two years now. Anytime I feel a little run down or that I might be coming down with something I start talking these as directed. Whatever the illness is it never seems to get really bad. It makes what might have been a really bad cold and makes it a slightly annoying cold instead. Coincidence...maybe but I think I'll stick with this product.
4.0 - Definately Feeling Much Happier! not sure on the cold yet
So I had this horrible sinus cold for over a month! I was at a Mind Body and Spirit Fair, and was told to try it. It was sold out in most health food stores. I have been taking if for three days now. I have been taking 3 tablets (P.U. they are stinky) every four hours. So far, I have noticed my coughing is a lot less, but still there. The for sure thing I notice is a increase in my mood. I feel more energetic and happy. Now maybe it is just my mind playing tricks on me. But so far, I think it is great for my well being! The cold is about done, but the cough kind of lingers.........so time will tell. I would recommend this to friends for a feeling of energy and well being.
5.0 - Great product!
Helps to boost your immune system but as any vitamin/supplement shouldn't be taken on an empty stomach. Doesn't really smell great but definitely does the job. I took two caps in AM and two after dinner. It helped me to finally get over many reoccurring colds that I battled the entire winter. Definitely would recommend this product!
5.0 - Miracle Pills
I swear by these vitamins! No need for the flu-shot when taking these regularly, they truly keep your immune system strong. My boyfriend was coming down with a cold and was experiencing flu like systems when I told him to go out and buy this product. He took 6 pills and was completely fine the next morning. I take 2 pills daily, and have not been sick yet - even when exposed to others who had the flu. Strongly recommend for warding off colds and flu!
5.0 - Been using for 10+ years
I take this whenever I feel a cold coming on to boost my immune system - it's awesome
5.0 - Miraculous Results
This was recommended to me by a friend who has also suffered with allergies and summer colds for years. I was in the midst of the worst bout of head and chest congestion when I started taking this. It MAY be coincidence, but within 24 hours, my body was fighting back and winning. Since I began taking these capsules, I have eliminated the use of antihistimines and decongestants. NO Sinus Headaches! I do not take them all the time. I take one a day if symptoms begin. After 3 days, I do not need them. I have breezed through Cottonwood season this year, while those around me have suffered.
5.0 - Cold Buster
Wellness Formula is just too good. Glad we found it on Amazon, other stores sell it for a higher price. It has all essential herbs needed to give you an immunity boost or to help kick a cold.
5.0 - helps with the crud
I start taking these when someone in our house starts to feel sick. It seems to help boost my immunity. I also take them whenever I am sick to help speed things up.

The best immunity / cold fighting pills
5.0 - I've been directly exposed to colds and just take the recommended dosage for this and have avoided getting sick
I've used this for about a year now and it works wonders keeping me from getting sick. I've been directly exposed to colds and just take the recommended dosage for this and have avoided getting sick. You do need to be careful if you are taking other vitamins that you are not taking to much of something.
5.0 - Effective product
These really work. I have no idea why, but I took 1 a day religiously last year and never even got a cold. At the first sign of getting sick I increased the dose to 1 or 2 after every meal. DO NOT TAKE ON AN EMPTY STOMACH or you'll get sick. Well worth the price and I will continue to buy them and recommend to others.
5.0 - The ONLY thing we take when we feel a cold coming on
Was recommended to me by my nutritionist as well as my health guru sister in law.
5.0 - ... this is but as soon as I start feeling like I'm getting sick
Not sure what kind of witch medicine this is but as soon as I start feeling like I'm getting sick, I start popping 3 of these every 4-5 hours for a few days and my cold never comes. Either this really works or +1 for placebo effect. Either way, so long as it prevents me from getting sick, I am all for it!!!!
5.0 - Heads of colds before they setin!!
I didn't think it could really work BUT I noticed as we were all sick my husband was NOT catching the colds and sickies going around all family members....and found out he was faithfully taking Wellness Formula!! and if he felt he was coming down with something he takes the recommended extra dosage. THIS STUFF WORKS!!! and it gives you a good feeling of wellbeing...I know that sounds crazy and the FDA would say "this has not been proven" well WHATEVER. I can tell you from first hand experience this formula will prevent sickness and boost your immune system.

Wellness Formula really works! If you take it daily it will help to boost your immume system and help guard againt colds and other bugs that runs you down. Taken and the first sign of a cold it will shorten the term and severity. I've used it for three years now.
5.0 - Works great
I've been taking one of these each morning, plus a package of Emergen-C and I've only been sick once in 4 years. I used to get a cold every year. I start taking them when it gets cold and everybody starts getting sick and quit in the spring when flu and cold season is over. Works great.
5.0 - Great Supplement for Health!
Take these for a week when cold symptoms start! You will start feeling better within a few days! Read dosage on back and take as much as you feel nessecary
5.0 - BEST THING EVER.....WELLNESS FORMULA
Great PRICE as compared to anywhere we have shopped for them. I'm 61, and until.I was about 46, I used to get bronchitis like 3 times a year since high school, like clockwork. My last bout, my wife learned of Wellness Formula, I took those, and I mean to say, I was so sick, I took those, and I have never had bronchitis since; and I must add, it cleared up in only a few days. The worst thing I've ever had in all these years is a cold. If I start getting a cold, I grab these, and it's gone quickly.
5.0 - ... I've been using it for over 12 years It's wonderful
Whenever you feel rundown or starting to get a cold take this every three hours and you're almost certain not to get sick I've been using it for over 12 years It's wonderful
5.0 - LOVE IT
This stuff is AMAZING! It always helps me get over colds faster, or completely avoid them if I start taking this right when you feel the sore throat. I have turned many friends onto it and they love it too. A MUST HAVE!
5.0 - The BEST immune builder hands down
The BEST immune builder hands down! Been using this for years...at the very hint of a cold or flu..double the dosage and wham..GONE!
5.0 - Fantastic capsules
I've used these for several years. I take one a day. It's the only pill I take - and I'm 72! If I get a cold which would normally last 3 weeks, I start taking 3 of these immediately and follow with 3 every 3 or 4 days. As a result, my nose might run a little, but I feel no effects otherwise - and the cold is gone in one week! These pills are wonderful!
5.0 - Great weapon during cold and flu season
Don't go without this during cold and flu season. Great value. Get gel caps to mask potent favor.

The best. I take 6 of these 3 times a day when I feel a cold coming on and I never get sick. (I used to get sick all the time). I also take 3 at least twice a day daily.
5.0 - Five Stars
Shortens my colds a bit or at least seems to diminish the severity
5.0 - Great for your immune system
I've been taking these immune boosters for a number of years now and I can say that the effects have been positive. For health maintenance, I take 1-2 capsules each day. If I'm feeling a little off-balance(like when the weather gets unseasonbly cold) I'll take 3-6 capsules each day until I feel better. The recommended dosage on the bottle is different. I've experimented a bit and found that this amount works for me.
5.0 - This stuff really works, either by the placebo effect ...
This stuff really works, either by the placebo effect or by its physical properties. I don't know which. If I take it according to the directions as soon as I have the first inkling of a cold or flu or when I am exposed to them, I don't get sick. Ever.
5.0 - Best way to keep away a cold
The minute I feel a scratchy throat / post-nasal drip / general exhaustion, I pop a few of these vitamins. I don't take them daily... only when I'm starting to feel sick or traveling. I used to get a cold about 3-4 times a year; since I've been taking these (upon the first signs), I haven't been sick at all. Whether it's placebo effect or what, I'm not sure. But I can say they've worked incredibly well for me.
5.0 - Will never be without this product again
This stuff has changed how often I get sick and how long it lasts. I cannot imagine how I could ever go without having a bottle on hand. I have tried TONS of immune supplements. This one is great, don't know how they do it. This and a some oregano oil will whip a cold in a few days flat.
5.0 - Was skeptical but it worked for me!
Ive had numerous bouts of sickness over the last year so I wanted to try something new. So I purchased this to have at the ready when I first would develop symptoms. So finally this week I woke up with a sore throat/ dry tongue which is the first sign for me that a cold is coming. I took 3 that morning and 3 more that night and the same the next day. And the cold never came. I'm amazed because I really had pretty low expectations. It does have a rather strong smell but not enough to make me gag. Give it try. I also think it worked for me because I had this right at the start of my symptoms and was able to take it right away.
5.0 - Five Stars
This stuff is what you need. Shorten or prevent that cold.

This product is great! While everyone around me is sick and in the bed sick, I'm not with this product. I begin taking this at the first feeling of a cold coming on. It pumps up your immune system. Great product and worth the money!!!!
5.0 - number one !
this is the number one product for keeping my immune system strong. even at the slightest possibility of getting a cold this fights it off the same day. only thing: make sure to drink at least half a glass of water after swallowing these...if they don't go all the way down to your stomach and start dissolving ....that burp is going to be nasty ! you might even get a little smoke effect from the powdered herbs flying out of your mouth...not a nice feeling at all
5.0 - Natural Cold Cure & Immune Support
Capsules are the WAY to go for these babies. There are so many wonderful and healing herbs in here but the smell and taste can be difficult for some. Take with some juice and make sure to purchase the capsule form. We take 3x a week to maintain health and increase if people are sick around us or doing times when the immune system is compromised. Can be used to naturally treat colds.
5.0 - Has made a big difference in winter colds
I've been using this product for many years as it seems like since childhood I was always the first person to catch every bug and the last one to get better. This has been one of the most effective things I have found to ramp up your immune system during cold and flu season. I do not take it all the time but keep it on hand at all times so that at the first sign of itchy throat or ookey feeling I can start taking it. Often, if I can get after it fast enough, it never develops into a full blown illness. If I do get sick, I believe this helps me fight it off a lot faster. If a family member comes down with cold or flu I always take it and oftentimes do not develop sickness. I did have sinus surgery awhile back and I think that helped a lot as far as getting sick all of the time but I have no doubt that I would be catching a lot more crud in the winter if not for this stuff. It has made a huge difference for me.

Always kicks my cold before it decides to stick around. Always have this on hand.
5.0 - These things are super expensive at Whole Paycheck and other places
I swear by this stuff. Whenever, i have an inkling I might be catching a cold, or I think i might be getting a sore throat, I start popping 2 of these 3x a day..RELIGIOUSLY! I do this for about 3 weeks. Now, once i quit, taking them sometimes wi/in a few days those signs and symptoms seems to be returning, So I start the whole 2 pills 3x daily again. I only take this for when i think a cold is coming on. These things are super expensive at Whole Paycheck and other places, so buy them here. My husband didn't believe they worked, until his whole office got sick with a nasty virus. Well guess who started taking them then...and guess who never came down with the office virus. He swears by them now, and he is not one to believe easily about herbs. Wellness Formula really works outstanding for us!!
5.0 - Good product good price
This product works to knock down a cold at the first sign of symptoms.
5.0 - Best Vitamin
I have been using Wellness Formula for well over a decade. It truly is the best vitamin I have found to either prevent me from getting sick when everyone around me has a cold, flu, etc, or to help me quickly recover when I've already gotten sick.
5.0 - Fantastic Immune System Booster!
Wow! Wow! Wow! I love these wellness supplements. They are great for boosting your immune system and stopping a cold right in its tracks. I take this at the first indication of a cold or sore throat. You can take up to 12 in one day. I haven't gotten really sick in a very long time because I usually get rid of it before the little sniffles turn into a serious cold. I highly recommend.

This stuff is where it's at. I am a teacher, and I take one of these every day with my regular vitamins. I think it really helps to keep me from getting sick as often. It tastes nasty--even though it's in a pill, I can still taste it. I have to take it with juice to mask the taste of the pill. But totally worth it. When I do feel myself coming down with a cold, I pop 6 in one day (as per the directions) and it helps to shorten the life of the cold, and make it less intense. It really works.
5.0 - Great!
They help a lot with my energy leves and with my health in general. It have kept me from getting any colds side I being taking them

5.0 - THE best product in my home
THE best product in my home! We've used Wellness Formula for over 15 years. At the first sign of a cold, we take six capsules and go to bed. 95% of the time we wake up feeling perfect! The other 5% of the time we continue for another dose or two and we're good as new. Have it handy when a cold comes on and dose immediately! It's also good for preventative measures, too! Be sure and always buy the CAPSULES, not the tablets. The tablets are very difficult to swallow and they smell so bad! This product does contain garlic so you will burp a bit. It's not super smelly!
5.0 - BETTER THAN FLU SHOTS!
I've been using this product for almost a year and it has kept me from having colds or flu. I take a daily protective dose of 2 capsules. I use this in conjunction with Natural Factors Anti-V Formula, which I take as soon as I feel a cold coming on. Both are excellent natural products which I highly recommend.

Heard from a friend this would ward off flu and colds. You need to take it before you are sick so I tried and it did help put one on delay.

Tried this for the first time last month on a friend's recommendation. This stuff works really well! My usual 2 week long cold was knocked out in 5 days! You do have to take a lot of it and it's not cheap, but I think it's worth the money to get well so much quicker.
5.0 - A must take every day
Can't live without my wellness formula. I've been taking it for over a year and I have cut down my sick time so significantly and quality of my life improved tremendously. I have a very low immune system and prone to just about any little weather change or hormonal imbalance and I catch colds, flu, sinus infections, chest infections - you name it! Wellness keeps me in check and in balance resulting in a great healthy body. I swear by it.

GREAT PRODUCT! Initially purchased at a local health food store from an employee recommendation for cold/flu. Found it here on Amazon much cheaper. Always have some on hand.
5.0 - Cures a Common Cold
I highly recommend this product. My office manager has it on hand for the day you get to work and you feel a cold coming on. Take as directed and after a couple hours the sniffles are gone.
5.0 - I know 6 capsules seems like a lot
I always keep a bottle of Wellness Formula handy so I can take it as soon as I get that feeling of a cold coming on. When taken as directed it is very effective, just don't wait until you're really sick to start taking it! The key is to take it with that first sneeze or scratchy throat. And take it as frequently as directed and as much as directed. I know 6 capsules seems like a lot, but it's just the right amount to keep you well. I find I need to take it with food and sit up for a while when I take it or I get a stomach ache. But that's all. No side effects that I could tell.
5.0 - This has become a family staple
We have been using this product for many years and it has become a staple. If one of us begins to feel run down, we use this to boost the immune system. I take this along on trips to avoid the colds and viral infections that seem to accompany travel. We get very few colds around our house because we combat any signs of a cold by starting the Wellness Formula regimen -- and if we don't catch it soon enough, Wellness Formula helps us recover more quickly. I was surprised that I got a better deal on Amazon than at our local stores. I initially looked for this on Amazon to send to our daughter at college.
5.0 - Great supplement
Recommend this supplement to anyone who has a comprised immune system. I have been taking them for the last year and have stayed healthy, no colds which I would normally get 2-3 per year. Still get slight allergy issues but no more sinus infections requiring antibiotics.
5.0 - Naturally Great!
Have used this for years vs. OTC cold medications. Getting the sniffles, follow the directions and you will be glad you did.
5.0 - LOVE IT!!!
Love! I work with kids 3-12 year olds and haven’t gotten sick since I’ve been taking this! Before I was taking this, I got strep and the cold probably about 10 times within 6 months! Definitely recommend!

5.0 - Works great!
This product is simply amazing!! I've been taking it several years now at the first symptom of a cold. It seems to work as I barely get sick now. I have to warn you thought - it does leave a little bit of the nasty taste in my mouth if I take these on an empty stomach. I just have to make sure to take these with meals. Otherwise, this herbal formula works like a charm!

If you catch a cold coming on and can take this stuff right then it prevents the cold from happening at all but you have to take it right when you know something is coming on.
4.0 - SHORTEST COLD EVER!

4.0 - Always have these on hand
Been taking these for years when I feel a cold coming on. If you catch it early enough, you can stop the cold from developing or getting worse.
5.0 - It helps me recover quicker than without taking and feel like having more energy
My boss first introduced me for immune system 2 years ago when I cauch cold. It helps me recover quicker than without taking and feel like having more energy. I'm not much into health stuff but my husband is. Now he loves this supplement too. Combining with other supplement he take this everyday. He also feed me same things he take. Before everyday I was tired and had headaches make me feel lazy t do anything. But now I feel so much energized able to finish daily routine without problems. I definitely keep buying for both of us. It is life changer for me.
5.0 - Works!
Use this all the time when I feel like I have a cold coming on or everyone around me is sick. 95% of the time it allows me to ward off whatever is ailing me. In the winter I use it as a daily supplement and I haven't been sick with colds like in past years. By the way, I teach so, to me, this is a miracle!

Start taking this the moment you feel a cold or flu coming on, and most of the time you won't get sick, even when the rest of the household does. Smells awful--make sure you get the caps and not the pills.
5.0 - This is the BEST stuff!
This is the BEST stuff!! If I feel a slight sore throat, cold, or flu coming on I take 3 tablets morning and evening. I've found it best to take a maintenance dose in the winter of 2 tablets once a day. It totally boosts my immune system so I rarely, if ever, get sick. I've recommended it to many people and they all have the same positive results. It's on my "Subscribe and Save" list as I can't live without it, and the Amazon price is the best!

This really works to keep the colds away. If you take it at the first tickle of a cold. Don't wait.
5.0 - Pretty sure it works
For the past 4 years around the end of January and into February I would catch the latest variant of flu, cold, sniffles, chest cold or whatever happened to be floating by my terrible immune system. It seemed like it would start as allergies and then a virus would find me and send me off the edge. I would usually be home with a fever and feeling like death for 2 to 4 weeks. I tried Airborne and the like last year but it didn't do any good.
5.0 - Really prevents the beginning cold.
Helps me to keep colds away! If I feel I am getting sick I take this 5-6 a day and it sems like no more symptoms. Usually I take 1-2 daily
5.0 - Great Suppliment Product for immune system
The is a great suppliment product to help strengthen your immune system & minimize cold and flu symptoms. I now take one daily as a vitamin suppliment and double-up when I feel my immune system getting week due to being exposed to others with colds and flu symptoms.
4.0 - Good preventative
I take the Wellness Forumula daily in fall, winter, and spring. I have a young child in daycare and work in an office environment, and so I am constantly exposed to cold viruses. The Wellness Formula seems to help build my immunity defense, so I can fight off colds which I used to get a least once a month.

5.0 - Great Deterrent for Cold/Flu Misery
Very helpful and easy to take, with the first sign of possible cold or flu - I take the recommended dose for several days and often do not come down with the threatened misery as I do when not taking it. During the cold/flu season, I take one a day - and have been for many years. I swear by this product. Best if taking it regularly on the smallest dose recommended, and immediately increase to the highest dose recommended when symptoms warn of oncoming sore throat, itching ears, aches and common cold and flu symptoms.
5.0 - Great preventative remedy
When I feel a cold coming on I take these as directed and have warded off the cold every time. Take them asap after the onset of early symptoms such as scratchy throat, fatigue, sneezing, etc., and you'll be so relieved to wake up symptom free. Sometimes you need a few doses to keep the cold from coming on. Together with Echinacea tea it's a winning combination.
5.0 - If you are like me and follow the holistic path to wellness
If you are like me and follow the holistic path to wellness, then you need to incorporate this into your every day regimen, especially during the cold/flu season. I have been taking this for years and have not gotten sick. It is amazing.
5.0 - Great at keeping colds from fully developing.
This works great at keeping a cold at bay or lessening the overall severity. I start taking as soon as I start to feel the slightest bit off and it has completely worked for me. It doesn't work if you don't start taking early enough. Because it is herbal, you have to take a lot of capsules every few hours. I can always tell when it is getting to be time to take another dose. I have found that I need to eat something with the capsules or else my stomach bothers me. A few crackers with each dose does the trick.
5.0 - Best product I have ever used to ward off a ...
Best product I have ever used to ward off a cold or illness when I first start to feel one coming on. We have been using it for about 8 years now and helps every time!

Use this in combo with my Emergency every time I feel a cold coming on. Very large pills and they smell awful and taste the same if they sit in your mouth too ling, but work great.
5.0 - Five Stars
great product, really seems to make a cold go away faster
5.0 - A great blend of supplements.
This was recommend to me by a good friend who is a vitamin freak. These are an excellent blend of nutrients. I use it as a multi-vite and triple up if I feel a cold coming on. I do other specific supplements, and this is a great basic variety. It has so many things that most standard multi-vites don't do. It is a little smelly, but I don't let that bother me. They put a lot of good stuff in one pill. They are a reasonable size to swallow too.
5.0 - A pharmacist introduced me to this product.
I used to get colds and flu multiple times per year. I have fibromyalgia, which involves the immune system being low. In the three years I have been taking this, I haven't had a cold or the flu.
5.0 - I felt like complete and utter crap Saturday
So I bought some of this from my local health food store upon their recommendation 3 days ago for a VERY severe cold that came on very quickly. Symptoms were fever, lethargy and very thick bright yellow nasal discharge. I wasn't feeling well on Friday, I felt like complete and utter crap Saturday. I started taking 3 pills, every three hours without fail on Saturday. By Saturday evening I noticed I was feeling a little bit better with every dose. By Sunday, I was feeling a WHOLE lot better but still sick. By this time I was also starting to get a congested cough which is typical. Here it is Monday, and though I called in to work today I must say I feel close to 100%. The cough would normally grab hold and not let go, is not that bad. Still a bit congested. But I *feel* good and can honestly say I am no longer sick.
5.0 - It works for me
I have used this for many years in cold and flu season and I can feel the difference quickly when I feel symptoms. Use as directed. A lot to swallow, but effective.
5.0 - I take this every day. Haven't been sick for over 12 months
After a horrible cold/sinus infection that lasted about 3 weeks, I decided to try and be a little more proactive. I found this on Amazon, and have been taking it every day since. My doctor says that most people get about 4 colds a year, and since taking this, i haven't gotten one. I'm not sure if it's coincidence, or if this really helps - but i'm not about to stop taking it and take chances.
5.0 - 100% worth it
The only thing that saves me and my family when we start to get a cold. Worth the investment.
5.0 - Works like magic.
Start this as soon as you find yourself thinking "I feel less than stellar; I wonder if I'm coming down with something?" It blasts everything from flu to strep throat right out of the arena. My husband and I swear by it. The only times it's failed to drive off whatever bug assails us is when we've either let the crud get too much of a toehold first or let ourselves get run down. Even then, it shortens the length of our colds, flu, or whatever by days. Expensive, but worth every penny. Vital to keep on hand during flu season!
5.0 - Miracle worker
This is the most wonderful stuff! Use it at the very first sign of a cold or flu & often you can stop it in it's tracks. Originally heard about it from a Barber friend and many of his customers & staff. I have also told many of my friends who now also swear by it. This Wellness Formula is amazing! Buying it online from Amazon.com let me buy more than twice the capsules for less than 1/2 the price of the local health food store!
5.0 - Take this at first signs of feeling run down from stress
I was recommended these many years ago by a health food store. Since then, I've even given them as Christmas gifts. My gifted friends and family swear by these, too. Whenever I start getting run down from my stress-filled job, I start taking them and then, when I feel better, I taper back off. They're the best for a flu or cold. Get them and try them. You won't regret it! Money well spent and best deals through Amazon.
5.0 - used it for many years and I highly recommend it during cold season
used it for many years and I highly recommend it during cold season. Even my kids and my employees have started using it.
5.0 - EXCELLENT EXCELLENT PRODUCT
This is a staple in my medicine chest. At the very first sign of a cold etc, I start taking these and they "nip it in the bud". I now have all three of our adult children asking for them when they start to get sick. It shortens the duration and the severity of a cold or flu.

I rely heavily on this product to keep me healthy during cold season. Source Naturals always uses high quality herbs and in great ratios.
5.0 - ...
It helped me overcome my serious cold and cough problems. I've been taking these for two years now and works well
5.0 - A miracle in a bottle if you take them at first hint of symptoms
This stuff is amazing. Any sign of a cold or flu and I start popping these like candy. 80% of the time they seem to have taken care of my symptoms so that I don't get a full onset of a cold or flu. Of course these aren't miracle pills. If you take advanced precautions like doubling your dosage of vitamin C and take these vitamins with plenty of water, rest and reduce stress levels - you will have a fighting chance. Highly recommend this formulation, my family swears by it.
5.0 - Been relying on Wellness for about 25 years now!
A friend recommended Wellness to me some 25 years ago. I have depended on it to keep me flu free, cold free, healthy in general, and it's a total success. I have gone through flu epidemics at work and I'm the one that doesn't catch it. I recommend Wellness every chance I get. It works for me.

5.0 - The BEST
The BEST cold prevention/minimalization product!
5.0 - I highly recommend the product
My wife and I have been using this product for over a year and have found it to be quite effective at preventing the common cold if taken with the first indication of symptoms, and at reducing the severity of symptoms and the duration of the cold when taken after symptoms have set in. In reduced dosage it seems to help maintain general wellness. I highly recommend the product.
4.0 - Great Immune System, taste okay...
I love these, cause the ingredients, they really boost your immune up. I notice when my kids get sick, they recover fast or it doesn't hit them really bad. Also they are good for keeping the colds at bay. My kids are not too crazy about the taste. they are too big as well.
5.0 - wellness formula
great stuff. We all love it in our family. Just take it when you start to feel a cold coming on.
5.0 - simply amazing
you wont believe how miraculous this product is until you try it. i have been searching for years for a supplement that really boosts your immune system....nothing ever helped. somebody recommended wellness formula to me. i was very skeptical but tried it...and i have never been sick even once since. the good thing is that you dont even need to take this regularly...just take a few megadoses when you feel you are getting sick...the effect is virtually instant. i tend to get pretty nasty cough when i catch a cold...so recently my throat was already itchy, i felt tired and i had a cough...i took 10 tablets over the course of a day...the next morning, EVERYTHING was gone!
5.0 - Five Stars
Great product for when you are starting to get a cold.
5.0 - Good cold and flu defence.
I have used wellness formula for many years, and it has been very good in reducing the length of time of any call or flu symptoms that I have had.
5.0 - Must have for every household
I recommend this product to everybody. It definitely reduces the symptoms of flu and colds.
5.0 - ALWAYS KEEP ON HAND!
I always keep these on hand for when I get around someone sick to keep the germs away. Also use at first sign of a cold or not feeling well.
5.0 - Works, and much cheaper than whole foods!
I have had a really terrible immune system in the past, and I normally get sick several times a cold/flu season, last year I was sick the ENTIRE month of December with a cold, then bronchitis, almost to the point of pneumonia. I started taking these because I have an in home child care now, and I really can't AFFORD to get sick. I cannot tell you how this nips the sickness right in the bud. I am so convinced that I have begun taking 2 tablets a day so I just don't even get the inkling of being sick. I begun having cold/flu symptoms last Friday, tired, achy, freezing cold and shivery, and I downed six of these. Within three hours I had terrible garlic breath, but lost the foggy, achy, chilled feeling and felt at 100%. I really believe these played a huge part in that. This is a great value, and less than half the price of Whole Foods. I subscribed so my husband can start taking them too. Excited about my new immune system!

The absolute best natural remedy I've ever used for any time I feel a cold coming on. I haven't gotten sick in over 5 years because of this stuff. I swear by it and recommended it to my whole family.
4.0 - I think it works as I haven't caught a cold ...
I think it works as I haven't caught a cold since I started using it. There should be a warning not to take it before bedtime though, as it keeps me up for hours. I took some at 11 pm and it's now 3 am and I'm still wide awake. Note that I bought the bottle at a Whole Foods in CA so apparently it's a different formulation (and also much more expensive).
5.0 - Great product.
This product helps if you feel like you are coming down with cold symptoms. Also they give a maintenance dosage of 1-2 pills daily.
5.0 - Not a miracle drug, but darn close!
My go to pill whenever I do not feel great. If I feel any sickness coming on, mostly flu, cold, sore throat, allergies. I will amp up the amount of Wellness formula, instead of 2-4 pills a day, I take the recommended 6 pills every 3 hours and it knocks it right out. I usually end up with colds that last several weeks. I have always been like this since I can remember, I am 33 now. Since I discovered Wellness Formula my colds last no more than a day! I have turned several of my friends on to it as well. Almost half price on Amazon as opposed to locally!
5.0 - Awesome formula that works to prevent illness
I first used this formula when on vacation in Juneau AK and thought I was getting a cold. Bought it in small store on main street as recommended by sales clerk. It worked wonders. No cold, no symptoms by evening. My daughter was getting sick so I gave her some that I had just received from Amazon and she said it was a miracle formula. She is a sales person and has customers who have told her to use Source Naturals Wellness Formula Herbal Defense also as they swear by it.
5.0 - Don't need 6 like the instructions state
They are literally magic. I just start feeling a cold coming and take 2 or three and it instantly goes away. Don't need 6 like the instructions state.
5.0 - Wellness capsules are super helpful for making colds go away or at least less nasty
This is an awesome product. The capsule vesion is much better if you have a problem with the vitamin over smell or delicate tummy. I love the caps for these 2 reasons. If you start to feel a cold come on take extra for several days and it usually makes it go away if got quick enough or keep taking and will make the problem much less symptomatic. They work great for me swear by them. Also use one cap a day like a muli vitamin sometimes. Works on other things than cold issues but not quite as well. If i go visiting and some one has a cold i go home and start taking a preventative dose right away almost always works for me. Great stuff!
5.0 - Best immune system support!
Every time I feel like I am coming down with a cold, I pop 3 of these 3 times a day and I feel better within 24 hours. The trick is to use them the second you feel under the weather and not when you already would need antibiotics. If you are prone to get sick more often, I recommend taking these on the daily.
5.0 - Amazing boost for immunity
Amazing boost for immunity. Take at first sign of scratchy throat, active lymph glands or other signs of starting to fight a cold/flu. Usually symptoms just go away! Even when you think it's too late to reverse it, it has worked on numerous occasions. My patients and I both have the same experience. Take 1 per day in cold/flu season to avoid getting sick. Take with food to avoid irritating your stomach in the longterm--- has a lot of Vit C and garlic---strong, but potent and natural, and best of all, EFFECTIVE stuff!
5.0 - CAN'T RECOMMEND THIS MORE - INCREDIBLE!
My daughter recommended this to me because I just couldn't get over a really bad cold - literally within a day, it was gone! It's a great one-a-day but if you feel something coming on or have something, take 3 - 3x a day with a little food. It's a miracle! wonderful wonderful and the seller shipped incredibly fast!
5.0 - Great immune system booster
I haven't gotten a flu shot in two years, and have not gotten sick (not even a cold) since I started taking these. I usually take 4 capsules per day, and 6-8 on rare occasions when I feel I'm getting sick. A 6 capsule dose packs a mega dose of Vitamin C along with herbs and minerals that boost the immune system. I always make sure that I have a spare bottle at home and at work. I also know that Source Naturals has a great reputation in the supplement industry. I know this stuff works!

5.0 - Best Immune Booster Ever!
I have absolutely sworn by this stuff for 20+ years now. And now I have my coworkers sold on it. Finally even sold my parents on it. Anytime a coworker or friend/family member around me is sick, I take it as a preventative measure. Or literally as soon as I start feeling something come on, like "out of the normal" tiredness, or the slightest sore throat, I immediately take it, then rest, then wake up feeling 100%! Works practically every time! WF has prevented me from getting so many colds over the years. I used to keep track of how many colds it has stopped me from getting, but I stopped counting after 25 times. Just know that WF is the best stuff out there! Wayyyy better than Emergen-C or AirBorne. It has the ingredients they have plus a lot more good immune-booster stuff!
5.0 - Fantastic Product!
Amazing product. I use it daily. Since I started using it, I've had no issues with colds or sickness. If I feel like something is coming on, I take the extreme dose and all is good. Great for flu season.

5.0 - Almost a vacin!
Fabulous product! During all my live, I had problems with my immunity. After using Wellnes Formula, I feel better and more: I got no cold even my husband had to take antibiotics to overtake his. It worths each dollar!
5.0 - Results
Wellness formula works many of the times I've used it. Start feeling stuffy and I double up on capsules---next day I feel normal. However, when a cold strikes, its there and nothing seems to help, including the Wellness Formula.
5.0 - Preventative health care
This product was recvommended to us by our older son. He and his friends have had great success using it to combat the affects of flu,colds,etc.
5.0 - This is a great product!
Good brand. Great product. My naturopathic physician recommended this years ago - she was very quality aware and based her recommendations on both applied kinesiology and scientific research/evidence. We use it whenever we are beginning to feel under the weather or if we have been around others who have been sick. It is a great boost to your immune system. I have also seen it work wonders with people who were chronically sick (cold, flu, bronchitis, etc..... not other more serious conditions). My ND also recommended against using it a more than 1/2 of the days during any one year, so that it does not decrease it's effectiveness over time.
5.0 - Works for me!
I've been using these wellness supplements for a few years now, and besides the terrible aftertaste I swear by their effectiveness. When everyone around me starts getting nasty colds I'm usually getting asked how i've not caught it yet. Not a cure all but they seem to really help me.
5.0 - Life saver!!! Must buy for traveling
They smell disgusting, but they will turn around a bad situation. Filled with tons of good stuff that can help lessen effects of a cold or prevent you from falling under.
5.0 - The wonder vitamin
I started using this after I got a slew of sicknesses earlier this year. I was hit with it all-- started with a cold, turned into a sinus infection, turned into bronchitis, then another sinus infection! April and May 2011 were consumed with sick for me. A friend of mine told me about Wellness Formula, so I started taking it to hopefully recover faster. (I was willing to try anything!) A serving size is 6 pills. When you see/smell these pills, swallowing 6 of them will appear impossible. I have yet to take 6 all at once. I just started taking one per day for a week, then two per day. I feel it really helped me recover from all my illnesses. Usually takes me a couple weeks to get over a sinus infection. After taking two per week I sprung back to life quicker than I ever have. Now I take one per day as a preventative, and if I feel icky I take two.
5.0 - Works to prevent and reduce colds!
This was recommended to me by a nurse when my wife had serious lung issues and I, who am in the public quite a bit, was in danger of catching my recurring and maddening seasonal cold. I have been taking it for a good ten months, taking a maintenance dosage just prior to my seasonal job and a full dosage when I feel that "scratch" at the back of my throat. I have yet to come down with a full-fledged cold. I may occasionally end up with draining sinuses and mild coughing sessions, but not a solid cold. As you can see by the capsule-count we order it in, it works for us; we hope it works for you.
5.0 - Always Liked "Wellness" and this was a good price.
We've taken Wellness for years and they really do seem to cut the time of a cold or flu... There are two "types" of the same formula, tablet and capsule. The tablet are more concentrated, the capsule is easier to take. As the number you take is different, and as the number of "pills" in the various size bottles is different, you may have to do some math to find the best deal... In any case, which ever you prefer, we think it's a good idea to get them before you need them, just in case you get caught in a group of coughers and sneezers...
5.0 - Love these!
I swear by these vitamins. Any time that I feel a cold coming on, I start taking these vitamins and it is gone within a day or two. Love these!!!

My son plays basketball and volleyball at a highly competitive level, and takes four honors/AP classes at school. So he gets worn down, and he was always sick, always cold, cough...but since taking these he gets sick less than 1/2 as much as before, and when he does begin to feel something these wellness formula knock it out quickly. I also take them whenever I feel a cold coming on and boom, it's gone...

4.0 - Cold be gone!
Excellent. use in conjunction with Umcka cold care at the first sign of a cold - gone in 2-3 days.
5.0 - Amazing stuff!
I purchased this product because I was feeling the first signs of a cold or flu coming on. I didn't take it until the next morning when I really had developed symptoms and felt like crap (body aches, headache, painful coughs, weakness and dizziness.) I then started taking it as the directions suggest for "imbalance": 3 tablets every 3 hours. When I woke the second morning, instead of feeling even worse, like my typical colds, I actually felt better. If I had been taking this all along, I'm sure I wouldn't have gotten sick at all. This is a must for your medicine cabinet and preventative routine! Very effective even at healing/curing!
5.0 - Great to keep colds and the flu to a minimum!
I love to take these when I start not feeling quite right. If I can do this right away it can stop, or at least shorten the time I'm down sick with the flu or cold. These Source Natural Wellness Capsule go down so easy since they are capsules, and I make sure to keep drinking water or tea for a while after I take them since it seems to help it process and absorb better. There are no side effects that come with it as in other cold medications so you won't get drowsy. I definitely can recommend Source Wellness Capsules for a natural way to try to keep from getting sick.

This is the stuff that gets me through the winter without getting run over by flu and cough and cold bugs ... a must in the apothecary!
5.0 - Excellent price and product, would buy again
Best product by far to fight colds/illness. Take as directed and you should be over the "icky" feeling in 2 days or less. Only really need to take 1-2 a day for maintenance if your diet isn't adequate. The price on here was excellent! For a 240 capsule bottle, Vitamin Shoppe usually sells for $40. Excellent price and product, would buy again.

5.0 - A great cold preventative
This product was introduced to me by my pastor's wife. She said to use it anytime you feel you could be getting sick. She takes it regularly during cold/flu season. I just use it when I get the sniffles. Works great to prevent colds and I'm sure it works on flu as well. If I get sick I am down for 3 weeks but now that I take Wellness Formula I rarely get a cold. The best price I have found has been Amazon.

5.0 - Continues too be useful.
I have been using this product for a number of years and while it doesn't cure flu or colds, it does seem to consistently decrease the length and depth of misery for me compared to not taking it at all. It seems to more effective if taken at the first sign of affliction. It lasts a long time since I only use it for the first few days when I'm coming down with something.
5.0 - Health Supplement
My brother told me about this product and it seems to work. That is, I don't get colds as often or become really sick. I was looking to replenish my supply and ordered through Amazon.
5.0 - My friend recommended I start taking this about four months ago
My friend recommended I start taking this about four months ago, as I was getting sick left and right from stress and exposure to other people who were sick. It had been recommended to her by multiple coworkers. So I took two pills twice a day when I was fighting off a cold that I knew was coming on, and then two days later, the cold that was impending just never came. I've been taking two pills daily for four months now, and have not gotten sick once, even with a house full of people with colds.

I used to get sick at least once a month (terrible immune system!), but since taking 2 capsules daily - I rarely get sick! If I start to feel a cold coming on or everyone around me is sick, I load up on these pills to prevent that cold from developing. I recommend this formula to all my friends and family. No complaints whatsoever from me, very happy customer!
5.0 - Take this and stay well!
This is my family’s “go to” when we are exposed to the flu and colds. If you take it at the first sign that you MIGHT be getting sick, it will help you fight it. Follow the directions and STAY WELL! Offices should carry this for anyone that wants to take it to avoid getting sick. It really works! I didn’t love the taste of the tablets and the capsules fixed that concern completely. Eat first and drink lots of water. Thank you for Wellness Formula!
5.0 - Miracle Cold Cure
This product is amazing. I highly recommend the capsule form but I wouldn't be without it.
5.0 - Was skeptical but it worked for me!
Ive had numerous bouts of sickness over the last year so I wanted to try something new. So I purchased this to have at the ready when I first would develop symptoms. So finally this week I woke up with a sore throat/ dry tongue which is the first sign for me that a cold is coming. I took 3 that morning and 3 more that night and the same the next day. And the cold never came. I'm amazed because I really had pretty low expectations. It does have a rather strong smell but not enough to make me gag. Give it try. I also think it worked for me because I had this right at the start of my symptoms and was able to take it right away.
5.0 - Keeps us well!
We have to work hard to keep in good Heath with two little ones in school and my partner working in a facility that has a lot of people coming in and out. We are exposed to everything. There is a huge difference in our ability to ward off the colds and germs between when we do take our wellness and when we don't . Love this product
5.0 - Works Great
Keeps colds and flu at bay.
5.0 - Stops your cold in its Tracks!
I was truly skeptical, but a family friend swore by it. She warned me that it smelled pretty herbally strong, but that it's worth it to stop a cold dead in its tracks. Sure enough, it smelled pretty garlicky, but after taking 24-48 hours my cold was gone. I've used it ever since. Works best if you can take it as soon as you experience the onset of a cold, but I have taken it after the sore throat and body aches were in full effect and it still worked! This has saved myself and multiple friends from stopping our colds just before going on vacation. My only warnings are that it tastes very herbally and can give you gas, but its better than being sick and missing work or your vacation.

4.0 - no colds

5.0 - cure all
I wasn't so much a believer but my cousin suggested these pills after I got a cold. I started taking them when I was already feeling better and then thought they didn't do much and stopped taking them altogether. Fast forward, and I caught a cold during the holidays. I figured it was worth a shot to hedge my bets and started taking the pills at the beginning of the worst day. What a difference! I felt SO much better by that evening and I felt much better throughout. Even though I'm taking half of the recommended dosage (6 pills every 3 hours seemed a bit overboard) and took only 3 pills in the evening and at night. If i forget to take them before bed, a nasty cough will wake me up and remind me to take my pills. I usually knock out and I noticed my cough is significantly reduced throughout the day if I remember to take them in the morning. They're incredible. I only took tylenol twice and have not had to take any other supplements or OTC cough syrup, etc... AMAZING.

I started taking Wellness at the suggestion of a friend in 1999. I haven't had a single (that's not one) cold since. Not one. Before Wellness, I got the standard number of colds ... one or two a year.
5.0 - WELLNESS indeed! Highly recommend for lessening severity and duration of colds.
Always my go to for whenever I feel something coming on. Greatly lessens the severity of the bug I've caught and I always carry a bottle with me if I'm traveling for a longer period of time. Essential!!! I experience some garlicy aftertaste, but I love garlic and eat a lot of it anyways.
5.0 - Five Stars
seriously don't go more than a couple days with out this stuff. keeps me from getting as many colds.
5.0 - Wonderful little pills!
Great deal on a great med. Take these just as you are getting sick (or when you kids come home with a cold) and you are safe. It will quickly knock the cold out of your system and you will be great by the next day.
5.0 - Great supplement
Just about the only product that I noticed a positive difference when I took it; if you catch it early enough, it makes a cold go away or at least makes it much less severe.
5.0 - Great for Fighting Colds
I purchase the Wellness Formula supplements because my sister and her husband swear by them. The package arrived timely, the price is excellent. I'm hoping the wellness said formula will keep me cold free thru the winter.
5.0 - Highly effective, with zero side effects
Competitively priced, with zero side effects. Also highly effective. They’re great for warding off an oncoming cold, or shortening one you already have.
4.0 - My best friend during winter cold season
I buy these religiously during the winter season and (knocking on wood) so far so good -for years! I also buy them before traveling (especially air travel) and take the maintenance dosage to keep my immune system up. I highly recommend them. The only down side is having to take so many (minimum of 3 per day) and they are a bit pricey -but worth it.
5.0 - Absolute must for your medicine cabinet
This is something that you'll never find me without... This stuff works so well! As soon as I feel a cold coming on or I'm around someone who is sick I also start to take this and it keeps me healthy. I now use it daily and not only when I feel sick. I recommend taking it with food. They don't smell great, you can really smell the garlic, but it's worth it.
5.0 - This product really works!
I have been using this product for over 15 years. At the first inclination where I feel a cold or sore throat coming on, I take 5 capsules to build up my immune system, then continue taking 5 capsules each day for the next few days. I don't say this will work for everyone, but for me, I have found either the cold never materializes or it's gone in a couple days. Same for a sore throat. The important thing to remember is, one must take these capsules at the first sign of illness. Once you've been sick for a few days, I have found to start taking these capsules does not have the same positive effects as taking them before the illness sets in.
5.0 - this thing works for me
I don't serious flu anymore. Don't know if it's the propolis or sambucus that is in here but this thing works better Tamiflu for me. The anti viral and anti biotic qualities of this supplement are incredible: works on ear infection, cuts, cold sores, pink eye, and obviously common cold and flue. Perhaps FDA needs to regulate this...
5.0 - I have been working on cruise ships in January for ...
I have been working on cruise ships in January for the past 5 years. This is the first year that I did not get a cold and cough on the ship. Not sure why I did not get sick this year other than I was taking 12 Wellness Formula pills a day.

Has been helpful in nipping colds.
5.0 - The Best Product for Stopping a Cold!
I've been using this product for years and highly recommmend it. If you start to feel the start of cold coming on take this product. I tell everyone about it! They should call me and I could sell it for them!
5.0 - Awesome stuff. Natural and helps your body do what ...
Everyone should have a bottle of this in their house to take at the first sign of a cold. It is one of my go to's now at onset of cold. Awesome stuff. Natural and helps your body do what it does best. Nuff said....
5.0 - Five Stars
Good stuff. Can't be without it during cold/flu season.
5.0 - excellent immune system supplement
excellent immune system supplement. It works really good, I gave it to my child and it helped him a lot. He got a bad cold and I started giving him the caps and within a couple of days he was healthy again. Just drink them with lots of water so they go down all the way or you could start burping them and the taste of the formula is not good.
5.0 - It's a miracle and it truly works
I reach for this product immediately when I feel an imbalance, i.e., sore throat...headache. Whatever your symptoms, head for this product ASAP and it will make small tracks out of what could have been a giant. Best used only for times you have the start of cold or flu symptoms....it really works and I've never been let down in the many years I have used it.
5.0 - Great to ward off colds
Great to ward off colds. Also, like that if you do get a cold you can add more pills to make it go away quicker, which really works.
5.0 - When ever you feel the first sign of a cough ...
When ever you feel the first sign of a cough, cold, sore throat, take these for a day, or two and honestly the symptoms are gone.
5.0 - Absolutely amazing. I have a horrible immune system and
Absolutely amazing. I have a horrible immune system and, especially in winter, get sick all the time. I take this at the first sign of any cold and feel better the next day. The only thing I don't like is that the serving size is 6 pills when you feel like you're coming down with something and 4 for maintenance. I also have a problem with capsules opening in my esophagus because they didn't go all the way down and boy do these ones hurt if they open in your throat. Definitely take these with food so this doesn't happen to you.
5.0 - good s***. helps me get better a lot faster ...
good s***. helps me get better a lot faster whenever i just have something simple like a cold without the need to go to a doctor or use some other medicine.
5.0 - Works fast and well!
I just use this at the hint of a cold and it works wonders, seriously. I take 6 capsules initially and then the next day or two 3 capsules and the cold never really manifests any further. Simple, I like simple :)

Very helpful in alleviating colds and flu
5.0 - Source Naturals Wellness Forumula - Say Goodbye to Colds and Flu
I have never been this impressed with a supplement before. Source Naturals Wellness Formula can be taken year round for general wellness but most take it during the cold and flu season. I took a chance on this after reading every single review I could find on it both on Amazon.com and elsewhere and I am so happy that I did. Both my wife and I swear by this stuff and since we started taking it roughly two years ago neither one of us have been sick with a cold or the flu. We have three kids and they are always bringing home "bugs" from school. On top of that my wife is an R.N. and she is around sick people all day. With Source Naturals Wellness Formula we worry less about getting sick. Is it possible to get the flu or a cold while taking this? I imagine so but we have yet to get sick since taking this product.
5.0 - Five Stars
Great product I already feel better from a cold that I caught a few days ago!
5.0 - Beats a cold
I have used this product for several years and found if you take it as soon as you can (a few Sneezes) I use it. I found that it turns off the cold symptons very quickly and in a week you would not know I had any cold symptoms at all. This was recommended by a nurse practioner. Amazon had the best price and all stores do not carry the 240 capsule bottle.
5.0 - Stay WELL!!!
If you feel you are getting a common cold, scratchy throat, runny nose....begin right away and you will be amazed.
5.0 - Excellent Product
After success with the 90 count I opted to purchase a larger quantity and have been taking it to prevent colds, etc. Love it!
5.0 - Nice
Been taking this stuff on and off for several years and I have to say I keep going back to it. It will not cure the common cold, but it will shorten the duration and intensity of the misery
5.0 - Works great!
Usually purchase my Wellness Formula at the local health store. Was great to be able to buy it at Amazon for a cheaper price. The Wellness Formula is the best product I've found for helping stop a cold in it's tracks
5.0 - It works
I've never really taken nutritional supplements but last year when I was suffering from a cold, I was introduced to the Wellness Formula and after taking it for two days, I recovered. I thought it was a fluke so the next time I had symptoms of a cold coming on, I bought it and tried it again and it worked. Now, whenever I have symptoms of getting ill, I take it prophylactically and I haven't suffered from a cold yet. I've told others about it and they state the same. I'm not sure what's in this stuff and how it works, but it works.
5.0 - Wellness Formula is a great immune system booster!
I have put so many people onto this amazing supplement. I was first introduced to this supplement by a good friend whose husband had a bone marrow transplant and she wanted to make sure he was protected. She recommended that at the first sign of a cold, I take four capsules every four hours until symptoms subside. I did so when I felt a tickle in my throat and the onset of a cold coming on. This supplement knocked the cold out of my system before it took hold. A number of co-workers swear by the Wellness Formula now. Each capsule has 1300mg of Vit C, in addition to other herbal ingredients so it packs a punch. And the ingredients are water soluble so whatever your body doesn't use, gets flushed out. This can also be taken as a supplement every day for immune system reinforcement.
5.0 - News From A Chronic Common Cold Girl
I have a long standing history of being the "sick girl," I would often carry around a box of tissues because I would always have a cold. So when I started a job working in the ER I was concerned that I would be getting sick quite frequently so I bought these. I have been working there for a couple months so far and have yet to get sick! Despite what other people may be saying about this, it still does a great job of boosting the immune system. I haven't changed anything in my diet except for these and I am so happy I bought them!
4.0 - Works so far.
Not sure of how this works except I haven't gotten a cold since buying this and I have no ill effects from taking it. And somehow just thinking that it may be working is certainly giving me peace of mind. I will try to repost a review if/when I do catch something.
5.0 - I always keep this in my cold medicine collection.
I have this product handy so that when I feel a cold coming on, I just reach for it. Along with Zicam or zinc, I take 4 of these every four hours and I'm cold, congestion free. It's a wonder. I can't imagine how I tolerated all those colds before now. This make like a little more tolerable when you are without a cold!
5.0 - Great for colds and boosting immune system
Whenever I get sick I take these continuously throughout the day (every 1-2 hrs) and I'm fine within 24-48 hrs! Highly recommended. Amazon gives a great deal on the 240 capsules bottle.
5.0 - Great Product! Worth every penny
This product works especially well when you have that slight tingle in your throat and it's probably going to turn into a full blown cold/flu...the bottle says to take 6 pills=one serving size. I really really do feel like it gets you out of the woods. It doesn't seem to work if you are already full blown sick. Every one of my family members uses this product..It's worth every penny...about $20 to be exact..they carry it at my local Sprouts.
5.0 - ... this is but as soon as I start feeling like I'm getting sick
Not sure what kind of witch medicine this is but as soon as I start feeling like I'm getting sick, I start popping 3 of these every 4-5 hours for a few days and my cold never comes. Either this really works or +1 for placebo effect. Either way, so long as it prevents me from getting sick, I am all for it!!!!
5.0 - Heads of colds before they setin!!
I didn't think it could really work BUT I noticed as we were all sick my husband was NOT catching the colds and sickies going around all family members....and found out he was faithfully taking Wellness Formula!! and if he felt he was coming down with something he takes the recommended extra dosage. THIS STUFF WORKS!!! and it gives you a good feeling of wellbeing...I know that sounds crazy and the FDA would say "this has not been proven" well WHATEVER. I can tell you from first hand experience this formula will prevent sickness and boost your immune system.
5.0 - Really works
If you take this product just when you experience the first signs of a cold, your symptoms will probably be very mild. The trick is to keep taking it until all symptoms are gone.
5.0 - This stuff really works!!
I am a fairly healthy person so when I suggested this to my husband who gets sick every cold and flu season at least twice, he thought it was just another one of my "healthy" ideas. Well it was but it worked!! He started taking it immediately when he started getting sick and for the first time in years he managed through last year's season without getting sick. Last week he started having some symptoms and failed to take Wellness Formula and ended up getting sick again. I just ordered another 240 capsules of the stuff. I think he learned his lesson.
5.0 - They were recommended by my acupuncturist
They were recommended by my acupuncturist. I take them whenever I feel like am fighting off a bug. They seem to help me, hardly ever get sick and haven't had a cold in years.
5.0 - Love this stuff!
I always feel much better after taking this for a few days. I use it fro anything from colds to a preventive when I am stressed or under rested.
5.0 - Great immune booster
Sources Naturals Wellness Formula is my go to herbal immune booster. If I'm traveling or going to be in crowds, I take the Wellness Formula beforehand to boost my immune system and protect me from picking up some nasty cold or other illness. It contains a great combination of herbs that keep you healthy. And, if you're definitely getting that cold, start taking this and it will shorter your illness. I'm not a doctor, but I do know that this product works great for me.
5.0 - Good Immunity Support
This Wellness product helps my immune system. I take it when a feel a sinus infection/cold coming on. I have to take 6 pills for a few days, then I am better.
4.0 - Oh Yes it Works
Okay, so this stuff smells pretty bad...but these gel caps are better than the pressed pills since you do not taste this stuff in a gel cap. I have tried the liquid and the pressed pills and could hardly swallow them because of the bitter taste. The truth is...I had a nagging cough from a business trip. A friend said that olive leaf extract was the next natural thing to try. He was right. My cough that I had for 6 weeks was gone the second day of taking this product! Any time I start to feel something coming on...this will be part of my 'go to' arsenal to stop or shorten a cold or other illness.
5.0 - Best feel-good formula out there!
If I feel a little under the weather - scratchy throat or feel like a cold is coming on I take 4-5 of these capsules and usually, if I've responded to how I feel quickly enough, I head off the poor feeling and recover nicely within the next day or so. Change of season sometimes affects me, kids, friends, co-workers sneezing, but no issue when I have my Wellness Formula close-at-hand!
5.0 - still they work fantastic!! Helped me avoid lots of cold syptoms ...
Seem to always be out of stock here, still they work fantastic!! Helped me avoid lots of cold syptoms this season even lessen them when i was fighting something heavier

really works when you take it at first signs of cold
4.0 - Good way to Support Immune System
I live in a harsh cold, dry climate 9 months out of the year, and when the flu hits the area, it is nasty and hard to get over. I started taking these wellness capsules once a day to maintain my immune system and then 3 times a day when I am starting to feel sick. I no longer am stuck on the couch for 3-4 days unable to move when the first wave of the flu season hits. These things are amazing, and much cheaper on Amazon then in my local health food store. Will continue to purchase through Amazon.
5.0 - OUTSTANDING PRODUCT
This is a great product as long as you follow the proper dosage recommendation. I take this everyday so I can prevent any issues during this cold season.
5.0 - I find this to be amazing! I take 3 capsules two times a day ...
I find this to be amazing! I take 3 capsules two times a day for about 2-3 days when I feel a cold starting, and I never get that cold! The directions say you can take more if you'd like, but I haven't found it necessary. I can't rave about it enough!
5.0 - PERFECT!! I have Never had a product work ...
PERFECT!! I have Never had a product work in 24 hours before. It is RARE for it to take 48 hours. I don't know another product that will END flue, cold, etc. WITH SUCH SPEED!! And they advertise PLENTY (but you never see ads for WELLNESS, and IT does work!!)
5.0 - good stuff
I take 2 daily for maintenance. anytime I feel something coming on or a little out of kilter, I take 3 then rinse my nasal w/ saline and take 3 more when I go to bed. I haven't been sick in nearly 2 years. note that I used to get 2 to 3 sinus infections/colds a year
5.0 - Ward Off Colds and Flu
Order for my Mother, she loves this formula. She swears it helps ward off flu and colds and if by chance she feels like she may be getting something, says this supplement helps to knock it out quickly.
5.0 - Healthy as can be!
Since I started incorporating this product into my vitamin regimen, I haven't felt more protected with all the other sick people around me or gotten over my sinus infections so quickly. To protect myself from others and boost my immune system, I take 1 or 2 of these morning and night. If I'm stressed, feeling like I'm getting a cold or sinus infection, or I'm around a lot of sick people, I take 3 of these at least twice a day, sometimes 3 times a day. These work wonders and are a great bargain if you subscribe.
5.0 - Always keep this 'on-hand.'
Take two of these each morning and more if you think you're catching a cold or sore throat. It really helps and I have more energy.
5.0 - Source Naturals Wellness Formula Caps 240
GREAT for IMMUNITY especially during cold months!
5.0 - Wellness Formula is my go to supplement
Great deal! Love this product and this seller made it easy. The Wellness Formula is the one supplement that has always helped me to not get sick or get well fast. A must for cold and flu season.
5.0 - I have fended off sore throats, colds and flu ...
I have fended off sore throats, colds and flu bu taking these at the onset. For me they are an addition to another vitamin regime that I am on, but when I start feeling something come on...I overdose on these and BAM***** Gone with the germs!
5.0 - Take it before any cold symptom.
Wellness Formula works like magic for me. I always take it before I feel sick or cold, and I can feel it helps to boost my immune system to defend common cold.
5.0 - Great for Colds
I have been using this product for a while and it certainly makes me and my family feel better and get better faster.
5.0 - I highly recommend this product
Wellness Formula keeps the winter colds away and it greatly reduces my spring and fall allergies as well. I highly recommend this product. It came securely packaged from the seller.
5.0 - It really works!!!
I rarely write reviews....this has worked for me twice during the horrible cold & flu season. Discovered it by random Chance. Started takin 6 pills twice/day when symptoms first surfaced & within a day I was cold free!!!! Everyone should have this on hand!
5.0 - I've been using this product for several years when I ...
I've been using this product for several years when I catch a cold. This product works very well. If the cold is not warded off entirely (one needs to attack the cold at the very earliest symptoms), then by following the directions the cold is reduced to 3 days vice the normal two weeks!
5.0 - These things are super expensive at Whole Paycheck and other places
I swear by this stuff. Whenever, i have an inkling I might be catching a cold, or I think i might be getting a sore throat, I start popping 2 of these 3x a day..RELIGIOUSLY! I do this for about 3 weeks. Now, once i quit, taking them sometimes wi/in a few days those signs and symptoms seems to be returning, So I start the whole 2 pills 3x daily again. I only take this for when i think a cold is coming on. These things are super expensive at Whole Paycheck and other places, so buy them here. My husband didn't believe they worked, until his whole office got sick with a nasty virus. Well guess who started taking them then...and guess who never came down with the office virus. He swears by them now, and he is not one to believe easily about herbs. Wellness Formula really works outstanding for us!!

5.0 - I started taking it in response to a weakened immune system and a bad head cold
I have used this product for a few years now (4) and would not want to be without it. I started taking it in response to a weakened immune system and a bad head cold.( a close friend recommended the product.) I followed the directions and took it 3 x a day (3 capsules at a time) Within 2 days, I was feeling significantly better and by the 3rd day I was completely well. I then started taking it to maintain a healthy immune system. (2 a day works well for me.) I have not been ill since I started taking this product 4 years ago. Because of my age (69) I do get an annual flu shot. I refuse to be without it. Works wonders for me.

Really works. I took it when I was sick with a cold and it help me feel better sooner. I also took it as a prevention when I felt a cold coming on and I didn't get sick...
5.0 - Aptly Named Helps the Immune System
I've not gotten sick since I started using this, (4 a day), about 6 months ago. Got through the flu season and seem to be resistant to those bad 2 week colds that come around every now and then. I go to meetings and mingle with many people in small rooms about 4 times a week, so I am exposed to whatever is the illness du jour at the time.
4.0 - Good Stuff
A coworker gave me some in the original pill form after explaining i had been fighting a cold for 2 days. I took 6 that day and 3 the next morning and by midday the cold was gone. So i purchased the capsule version, because they're smaller. I do think these work just as well (i have a toddler and have not caught a cold since taking) but i do think the original pill form is slightly better. I will be purchasing those next time.
5.0 - Five Stars
These are LIFE SAVERS during cold and flu season.
5.0 - It actually works
At the first sign of an oncoming cold, taking mega-doses of Wellness Formula usually knocks it down within a day, and otherwise reduces the symptoms.
5.0 - This stuff is magical
I have never been a believer in herbal supplements. I am completely skeptical of anything that is not prescribed and proven by the FDA. This product, however, is unbelievable. I was getting a cold every few months before religiously taking this product every day. Since then, I have yet to be sick and I'm going on 6 months now. Every time I feel a little tinge of something coming on I pop 6-9 pills over the course of a day and BOOM it's gone!! How does this work so effectively? I don't know! I don't care...it just works. I am so glad this product is on the market. It works. Period.
4.0 - Recommend to everyone
Rated a 4 just cause it normally keeps my immune system at its peak & keeps cold sores away. But not this time. Idk what triggered the rash on my chin to the rash on my lip but i keep takin this product along with other things & normally cold sore/cold sore symptoms would vanish with few hours or day but its been stickin around for almost 2 weeks now. Idk what it is, maybe i was just long over due for a cold sore. Just got the rash no cold sore. Soo imma keep at it with combo of hylands cold sore tablets, peaceful mountain cold sore rescue,1000 lysine mg, & wellness formula. Fingers crossed itll be gone sooner than later
5.0 - Great for helping kick the crud!
I started taking this product a few years ago when my whole family was stricken with H1N1. I personally think it helped shorten the length of time we were sick with it. Now my husband and I keep it around just in case. Whenever one of us is feeling something coming, we start taking it. We either end up with a shorter cold or nothing at all. I highly recommend this.
5.0 - In my opinion.
This product has kept me free from colds and flu now for 2 years. I don't get a flu shot because I don't need one with this product. I take 3 tablets daily as a maintenance dose. It is a great product.
5.0 - I love this
It is my go to when I need to fight off a cold or whatever bug may be around. It is so worth buying and has kept away the flu and other cold symptoms.
5.0 - Cold relief and year-round wellness support
This product requires you to take 6 capsules twice daily at the onset of illness, and while that seems like a lot, it makes a world of difference. There's no need for cold medicines with this supplement, and my symptoms nearly disappeared as long as I continued to take the supplements as instructed.
5.0 - I recommend it
It is a great product. For these times of constant colds the whole family uses it!! The capsules are much easier to swallow than the tablets.
5.0 - It works great a long time customer of this produce great for the flu and cold season
I have been using this produce for a couple year now and it getting hard to found since where I was buying closed. I am glad I found it on line. We are not down with the flu or colds since we been taking this.
5.0 - If you feel a sickness coming on try this first, you will be amazed.
Okay so my mom has told me about this stuff for years and I always heard her but wasn't convinced. Then last year our family was getting colds like all the time and I was desperate for help and mom my reminded me of this stuff so I thought what the heck lets give it a whirl, so I went out to the vitamin shoppe and bought some and gave it a try that night and by the next morning I was feeling way better than the night before normally I would be getting worse by that time but I was extremely surprised so pleasantly surprised that I actually ordered some on amazon to be sent to me every three months. Since then during cold season as a family we take elderberry syrup and if me or my husband feel something coming on we take this in conjunction to the elderberry syrup. Also this is not for kids so my kids have been taking the elderberry syrup and it has helped tremendously! I refer all my adult friends to this and their kids to elderberry syrup. It doesn't hurt to give it a try everyone's. Oldies are different but this has really helped me and my husband. Hope that helps in your decision, take care
5.0 - Five Stars
Start taking this at the first sign of a cold-- this stuff is the best
5.0 - Okay, so this does work.
My chiropractor recommended this to me as a way to boost my immune system. I have definitely taken it consistently and as directed at the very hint of a cold, and I've ended up getting sinus infections and bronchitis just as usual over the previous months. Instead of this, I would recommend drinking a lot of water, taking a multivitamin, eating a healthy diet, getting plenty of sleep, and eliminating as much stress from your life as possible. That'll probably be the real trick to health -- not just a weird smelling little pill.
5.0 - Pretty amazing really
I started taking two of these 5 days a week one year ago, I have not been sick ONE time since. No cold, no anything!! even through the cold winter. Pretty amazing really!!!
5.0 - Fending off illness
I travel almost every week for work. Long international flights mean breathing recycled air for 12+ hours. I used to get sick every single time I flew those long flights (i.e. I was never truly healthy). But ever since a friend recommended Wellness Formula (and Wellness Fizz) I haven't had a single cold, flu, or illness. Since the Wellness Formula is the only thing I changed, I attribute my new found health to taking these wonder pills.

5.0 - If you take this at the earliest possible point in ...
If you take this at the earliest possible point in time of feeling sick, it stops it. Must follow directions and must be done at the first hint of a cold. Don't bother taking it if you miss this early window.
5.0 - This stuff is magic
I have been using the wellness formula for YEARS. I take it right when I feel something coming on and continue until whatever it was is gone. Usually it prevents the cold or whatever from taking full effect. I only get sick about once a year because of this stuff! Very glad they made it in capsule form, the tablets were pretty disgusting and hard to swallow. These are no problem to take! Love.
5.0 - Good Product
Good product, I use it anytime I feel a cold coming on.
5.0 - Great Stuff!
I swear by this stuff during cold and flu season! I take 2 a day and stay pretty healthy. If I do start to feel sick I bump them up to taking 8 total and that usually works and I feel better the next day.
5.0 - A Great Product!
I've taken Wellness Formula over thirty years & will continue taking it as long as it's available. It has kept me from getting the flu and catching colds. A friend told me about it and I was skeptical when she told me the same thing... but, I swear by it!
5.0 - Can't be without this!
BEST product for warding off colds. Always good to have on hand during cold and flu season. Helps make the season merry!
5.0 - Simply Amazed by the effectiveness of this product
My husband and I use this product religiously whenever either of us feels even the slightest clue of impending illness. In fact since we started using this product a few years ago both of us have managed to avoid the cold and flu. However it does not help with allergies, I guess nothing's perfect, but this is pretty close. Keep up the good work and we'll keep buying more.
5.0 - Really works!
I was pleasantly surprised by the effectiveness of Wellness Formula twice. The first time, I was well into cold symptoms--chills, headache, runny nose--when I began the dosing regimen. It seemed to make my sinuses drain more and faster immediately, and I was symptom free after just 3 days. The second instance, I started taking right when I had that prickly feeling in my throat, and it went away within 12 hours. I'm now a fan, and will be keeping a bottle at the ready when colds begin going around!
5.0 - Great product
I take this stuff when I am sick and never get a secondary infection and it shortans the cold.
5.0 - I love this, no more colds.
I love this. I've been using it for a couple of years. I started taking it after getting serious colds. Since I started using it, I have not gotten sick. I subscribe to it and take 2 in the morning and two at night.
5.0 - Take whenever you are starting to not feel well
Take when you start to feel off and you will feel much better the next day. It works. I have avoided colds by taking this product.
5.0 - Zinc: the only scientifically proven element to help reduce ...
Zinc: the only scientifically proven element to help reduce the duration of the common cold. The second you feel the tickle in the back of the throat, take 6 of these daily for 3 days. Take one daily for maintenance and be healthier. These capsules work wonders almost every time.
5.0 - Great product
Great product so far no flu or colds
5.0 - Cold Buster
Wellness Formula is just too good. Glad we found it on Amazon, other stores sell it for a higher price. It has all essential herbs needed to give you an immunity boost or to help kick a cold.
5.0 - I have not gotten sick yet
I never get a flu shot. I have Fibromyalgia and cancer. My husband has an auto immune disease. He doesn't get flu shots either. He volunteers at the Fire Dept and I volunteer at a nursing home, so we are around germs. This is my second bottle. We've made it thru flu and cold season. My husband did get sick but it was not nearly as severe as it could have been. I stared to get it, then took extra doses and I was better in two days. I will continue to take these as long as I'm living.
5.0 - Really helps
I have used this when a cold seems to coming on and used it when traveling internationally to help avoid weird bugs on plane and during travel.
5.0 - Five Stars
I think it helps me keep from getting colds. I am around many kids with them.
4.0 - Great Product!
Great product that seems to help when you have a cold. As soon as my allergies or the sniffles start I take the Wellness Formula.
5.0 - Keeps those bugs away...
i tried by recommendation of local health food store, I don't have greatest immune system and this kept away colds and flu for a year....miraculous. i take one every day, more if i'm feeling stressed or buggy. take on full stomach. Capsules best way to go, or kid chewables. ( smell/ taste is horrific)
5.0 - Great product
I first started using Welness Formula a couple of years ago. Being from New England and working in an office environment I catch cold constantly in winter. It was recommended to me by the sales staff in Whole Foods. I got the tab version, not the capsules. You need to take 3 caps every 3 hours and they smell strong, very strong. Last year I had to go to a business trip in the middle of winter and I was feeling terribly sick, during the trip the only thing that made me continue was my Welness Formula. It definitely makes you feel much better within half an hour. Of course you need to still rest and try to recover, but when you do not have the time to do that it gives you the strength to continue your day. I love it and I recommend it all the time to my friends and coworkers.
5.0 - saved me from so many almost colds
This formula is awesome. Take it immediately when you start to feel the beginnings of illness and it works like a charm!
5.0 - This is probably the best product I have ever found that truly stands up ...
This is probably the best product I have ever found that truly stands up to what it promises. If I feel a little sluggish or think I am coming down with the flu or cold I increase the number I take and 1 or 2 days later I am well again. I love this product.
5.0 - Have loved and used this product for years!
I have been using this product for at least 15 years now taking 2 a day. Very rarely do I get a cold (may have gotten 2-3 during that time and they were extremely mild) and that was even with daily commuting to NYC and being around people sneezing on you, etc. If I felt I might be getting a cold I would just bump up the dosage to around 6 a day and that seemed to really help. Would recommend this to everyone!
5.0 - Buying Nothing Else
I have tried a variety of different products to boost my immune system. I suffered from chronic sinus infections for years and since I have been taking these I haven't even got a cold. BUying this product for life.
5.0 - Su-Z-Q-receptionist
I have used this product for about 2 years and have not missed any work due to illness. When I feel like I'm coming down with a cold, sore throat, head or chest congestion, etc., I immediately start taking these pills or capsules as directed. Usually by the 2nd day I'm fine and feeling normal again. I highly recommend this product!
5.0 - these are my good to get better fast solution
Wellness Formula rocks! Whenever I start to feel a flu or cold hitting, I start taking these and typically within 12 hours have knocked it out of my system. Really nothing else like it. These have save me during finals, scuba trips, vacations and important business trips. I always add them to my travel bags and can't recommend them highly enough.
5.0 - Five Stars
I use this product every day for maintenance and haven't had a cold in months.
4.0 - It works!
This was recommended to me by my supervisor. I tried it last year and never caught a cold. (I work out side in the freezing wind and cold) I just got back from vacation, I've been using it and feel great!
4.0 - Works, but the capsules give me heartburn.
I found this product initially at the local healthfood store after being sick on and off for a month and a half (our clients don't wash their hands.. yuck). It worked so well. I decided to see if I could find a better price online, and this is a great price. However.. the ones I got at the health food store were tablets, not capsules, and the dose was 3 instead of 6. Fine, I don't mind taking a bunch of capsules at once. However, about 75% of the time I take this stuff, it gives me pretty wicked heartburn for a solid hour or so. Major pain, but I'll take it over getting sick. It definitely keeps me from catching the colds and flus that are in constant rotation at my job.
5.0 - Excellent product
Been taking this product for years--one a day and up the dosage per product's instructions if I think a cold or some other illness might be starting. Haven't been sick with a cold or sore throat or similar in a long time. Prior to getting on a regular regimen of taking wellness formula, I was frequently getting sick. My two adult children love this product also.
5.0 - Really works
I don't know if it's placebo or what but I was getting a cold 1-2x a month before I started taking this. I take two a day and have not been sick since. I take 4 if I feel something coming on and within 48 hours, I am ok. I am a fan of this product.
5.0 - My Go To Immune Booster
I read about this product a year ago as a great way to avoid or shorten a cold. I was skeptical at first but I now know it really works. I have used this when I have felt a cold coming on ad managed to stop it on two separate occasions. I have also used this once when I had the flu and even though I still had flu symptoms they were a lot milder than usual. My only complaint is that the dosing is intense. They expect you to swallow 6 pills several times a day when you are sick or exposed to an illness! I usually take 6 or 12 (if I'm up for it) a day and I found even that makes a huge difference.
5.0 - the only supplements anyone would ever need
I don't believe in taking many pills, but these capsules are a game changer. These are the only supplements anyone would ever need. I started taking them a couple of years ago and haven't been sick from colds ever since. Definitely recommend them.
5.0 - Magic
Magic. This saves lives. Changes lives. Is life. Seriously. I hate getting sick and this prevents colds/flus, boosts my immune system and is the best thing since anything.
5.0 - Source Naturals Wellness Formula
Start taking these to prepare my immune system for the winter. Hopefully no colds this year.

Swear by this stuff, you will not be disappointed!! Take at first sign of cold and sore throat, then hop into bed!!
5.0 - Immune system builder that works.
Wellness formula really works. My wife's mother was real susceptible to colds, flu and pneumonia so I got her to start taking these and she had not more problems. Her other daughter who is a nurse said to take another vitamin and she go sick and pneumonia within about 4 months. My wife was the director of a medical lab and her mom's immune system was terrible until she started on the Wellness formula. Within 2 months is showed improvement and she did not get sick anymore at all until her other daughter took her off it. When she recovered from her pneumonia my wife got her back on the wellness formula and .she has had no colds, flu or pneumonia since and she will shortly be 85 years old and her immune system according to her lab work again shows improvement.
5.0 - Great weapon during cold and flu season
Don't go without this during cold and flu season. Great value. Get gel caps to mask potent favor.
5.0 - Great supplements!
As soon as someone in our house feels a cold coming on, we take this and oregano oil. It usually takes care of it before it becomes a major infection. If someone does really get sick, this helps get over it quicker. Great supplements!
5.0 - I hate when I run out
Must have while my kids are in school. Take at the fist sign of a cold and you can avoid getting it. I hate when I run out. Avoid getting one stuck in your throat as it taste awful to burp.
5.0 - Five Stars

5.0 - Five Stars
helps to combat cold virus
5.0 - Prevent sickness!
If I take 6 of these 3 to 4 times per day when I feel a cold or flu coming, it will fight it off!
5.0 - Works for me
I took the Wellness Formula for years and never got sick. I stopped taking it two years ago and started getting winter colds, a recurrence of allergies. Just started taking it again about 5 months ago and stayed well through the flu and cold season. Call it a placebo drug or what you will, I'll keep taking it.
5.0 - Magic pills
These wellness pills are kind of magic. There is a cold going around at work, so I started taking a few of these a day. My girlfriend got the cold and most of my colleagues, but I actually feel better than usual. Lots of B vitamins and other awesome herbals in these. My girlfriend also started taking them the day she started feeling bad, and the cold never hit her very hard. Also she seems to feel better about an hour after taking these. I highly recommend this product as a staple for your medicine cabinet!
5.0 - This stuff seriously is the best for fighting off illness
This stuff seriously is the best for fighting off illness. Whenever I start to feel like Im about to get sick. I pop the recommend dose for a few days and its gone. All natural. Seriously people should try it at least once this cold season.
5.0 - Love it!
Love this. Used Cold Snap for years, but this is less expensive and works just as well.
5.0 - Been using this for years.
I make sure I have this in my medicine cabinet all year around, but mostly use it during cold season. I've been using it for years, and happy to get a good price on it here.
5.0 - I've been using this for years and it's AMAZING!
This supplement is truly worth every penny! I use it at the onset of a cold and never get sick. It's one of those items that I always have on-hand. I don't have any issues with the way they smell, however the pill is like a large vitamin. I take six pills 2x a day when I'm feeling sick and stop taking them either when my symptoms have passed or if once I'm no longer exposed to sick people. They also make a kids liquid version, which I give to my baby and also recommend. Can't say enough good things!
5.0 - The attributes of Wellness Formula
The title speaks for itself! Along with making sure one eats healthy foods and gets plenty of exercise and rest, this products helps insure one to avoild those nasty colds and viruses. If we do our part, Wellness will do its part. I have been taking this product for years and years. I recently discovered that Amazon carries it so I am ordering from them now.
5.0 - Nice wellness product
Have used these for many years. It was one of the only products that finally got rid of my horrible cold. I use it as daily wellness just so I don't get colds. Seems to work for me and I will stick with it until it doesn't.
5.0 - Universe pills - somehow they work!
in our home, we refer to this as "universe pills" because of the picture of the galaxy on the bottle. My super skeptical husband and I both got sick right after the holidays and one of our semi-granola friends recommended this to us. As cold medicine either doesn't work, works only a short time, or makes us feel weird (Sudafed!), we decided to try it, and wow. We were both on the mend within 3 days, which was pretty surprising.
5.0 - I have used this product since 1999 and I still stand by it.
This product is my "go to" during winter months. I first learned of this product back in the 1990's when my mother was a pre school teacher. She swore by it after trying it for her first cold / flu season. I have since used this product as an immune defense / maintenance supplement. It has never failed. It works just as the instructions describe, and I have found that it will kill the length of a virus by half time. Meaning that if a cold usually takes 3-6 days to recover from symptoms; if you take wellness formula as directed during your imbalance, you will be clear nosed and snot free within 2-3 days.
5.0 - Wellness is as wellness should be
Taking one in the morning and one in the afternoon keeps the immune system strong. When I feel a cold coming on, I double the dose and haven't had a cold since taking this.
5.0 - Healthier Alternative Medication Proven With Us
Alternative medication- all are different, some work, some definitely do not. This particular OTC works. And work well it does with gradual result. My family doesn't take daily, but when we feel a cold or similar condition coming on, we begin to use, as instructed, (for seven days). Within two days, we begin to notice a difference and are already starting to feel better. By day four, we're almost back to our normal self but continue for another three days to finalize the result. I couldn't praise high enough although I would imagine this unique formula works as it does depending on one's chemistry. For our family's biologic's, Source Naturals Wellness Formula is extremely effective. The ingredients are certainly healthier for our bodies over other OTC medications available.
5.0 - Really DOES keep colds away
I have been using this product for 3 years. Following directions on the label, have reduced the frequency of colds from 3 or 4 a year to NONE. Recently discovered a much better price on Amazon than the previous supplier.
5.0 - Great Product- but you must take it correctly
Years ago this was recommended to me by a coworker when I worked outside at a local market. I had a terrible cold and she suggested I go buy this. I have used it ever since (that was 1997). At the first sign of a cold of any kind or flu like feelings, I take the recommended amount (six capsules- 3 times a day for several days) and drink lots of water and try to get as much sleep as possible. I also take 2 capsules a day during the winter cold/flu months. While everyone else has a cold that lasts for weeks, mine is gone in days. Try this stuff! It has worked very well for me over the years.
5.0 - This stuff is great for colds...
I used this product years ago and found if I felt a cold or flu coming on I would start taking it and found the symtomes were much less severe. I couln't find this in local stores, but l am glad I found it again....
5.0 - Works for me
I have been taking Wellness Formula on a daily basis for years. I use to get colds often and now even if I'm around sick people I don't get sick. This really helps boost your immune system. I love it.
5.0 - Great for Colds
I've used Wellness formula for years it's awesome!
5.0 - Loved The Old Formula - New One Doesn't Work
I get ear infections very often. I've been on a cycle of antibiotics for almost a year. Whenever I catch a cold it goes into my ears. Just started a new job, and had that horrible sore throat. I panicked and knew I couldn't go on antibiotics again, they're weakening my whole immune system. My bottle was about 5 mos. old and the directions recommended that when you're sick to take 6 tablets every 3 hours (and I believe it recommended to wake up during the night). I did it, and it kicked it within a day or two! I'm so sold. But now I see the dosage has changed. I would love to know why.
5.0 - Awesome Product
This is an AWESOME product. I swear by this product's ability to raise the immune system and keep colds and flu at bay. I wouldn't be without it.
5.0 - A LIFE SAVER!!
We use Wellness whenever we catch a cold or are even around someone who has a cold. Often it is so potent that it gets rid of the cold before it sets in. You have to take a lot to boot the cold but, it often works so, it's worth it.

A nurse recommended this to me for sinus infections & I recommend all sick people try them for colds & flus:) the only thing that sucks is it say to take 6 every 3 hours & I have to swallow them one by one with lots of water to prevent yucky burps
4.0 - They actually work most of the time
This product definetely works better than anything else I've tried. Zicam and Cold Eeze never did anything to shorten my colds and very rarely seemed to ward them off. Nature's Way Systemwell Ultimate Immunity didn't really work either. With the Wellness Formula I have been seeing results over a long period of time. Mind you, this isn't perfect, I have still gotten a cold now and then...but often they are less serious than the colds I used to get. Not every time, I did have a bad cold or two. The big thing I love about it is that SO many times I've felt myself getting sick. Chilled, a stinging in my throat, exhausted...you know how it is when you feel a cold coming. I take some of these as recommended and most of the time the cold is chased away. There really seems to be something to them. My only concern is that I've been getting newer bottles without Goldenseal in the ingrediants, so I've been buying that seperate when it used to be included. Bummer, but maybe a temporary shortage?
5.0 - No more miserable colds for our family!!
I used to get sick all the time. It was miserable, I was miserable & I was the one bringing the germs into the house & getting everyone else sick. I felt like a prisoner in my home every year during cold/flu season. I came across this product on Amazon & decided to give it a try & it has literally been life changing! The other reviewers detail how it's used so I won't reiterate that other then to say that I use a smaller dose as a preventative throughout the winter & then take the recommended dose when I feel a cold coming on. We keep a bottle in our cars, each bathroom, the kitchen, etc & I wish the kids could keep a bottle in their lockers at school! Thank you Source Naturals for this wonderful product. We have tried other products made by other companies but nothing compares to Wellness Formula.
5.0 - Body back in balance
Works very well at putting your body back in balance, especially after being sick with a cold. Only complaint is they tend to be hard to swallow. A bit on the BIG size. Other than that, I will reorder them and take the recommended 2 caps daily to stay in balance. If my students give me their "bugs" again, I'll up it to the recommended 12 caps a day, until the bugs (cold) is gone. Good product!
5.0 - works miracles
I start taking this whenever I feel a cold or flu coming and I have not gotten sick in over 2 years! It is awesome.
5.0 - Quite Effective
This product has gotten me over many illnesses. I recently had a cold that was a bit more than this could kill, but overall I trust this product and have had great results both getting over illnesses and preventing them. Recommended.
5.0 - I don’t think it’s just placebo... I think this product really works!
My mom let me try some of hers a few years ago when I felt like I was getting a cold. I have been my own now since they really do seems to give me some natural feeling pep and possibly prevent mild colds. I also take these in times of stress when my immune system takes a hit and it seems to help!
5.0 - It is amazing!
This is our go to for fighting off colds in our house. It is amazing!
5.0 - Good to take at the first sign of catching something.
A friend suggested these capsules, and every time I think I’m coming down with something, cold or sore throat, I start taking these and the next morning I feel fine. However, my husband and I both had the flu from a cruise we were on. High fevers and felt terrible. We started taking these but they didn’t work once we were already sick.
4.0 - Great Cure-All Product
I dealt with a cold for weeks and weeks on end and was sleeping, drinking fluids, etc. Nothing would stop it. I ordered this product after a suggestion from a friend and wala-gone. It's a natural way to end sickness and with all the nutrients, it'll help you knock out your sickness in no time.

I've been using this product for a while and swear by it…..I take the recommended daily maintenance dosage and at the onset of cold symptoms increase it as directed…My spouse has brought home a few colds over a couple years which I did not catch…did get some symptoms which disappeared….Once I did have a very mild cold for only a few days….I can't prove it's not coincidence , but the pattern has lasted such a long time , it can't be dismissed…I will continue to make the Wellness Formula part of my daily vitamin process…..
5.0 - Works Great For Me and High Quality Product
Been using and recommending this product for years to friends when they start to get sick, have everybody hooked during cold and flu season and as a preventive before traveling.
5.0 - Wellness Formula
My oldest son got me started on the Wellness Formula Herbal Defense Complex last fall when I came down with a terrible cold while on vacation. He told me to start taking the maximum recommended amount each day to help fight my cold symptoms & get well faster. I really think that taking the Wellness capsules seemed to help shorten the time it took me to get better from that cold. I have continued to take the daily recommended amount, along with my other daily vitamin supplements & prescription medicines, just to maintain better health. This June I got another cold and I increased the daily dosage to the maximum amount; this time the cold seemed to go away even faster than before! Hooray for Wellness Formula!!
5.0 - Reluctant Believer
I had taken these a few years ago before I had children and then stopped while pregnant. They got rearranged in the bathroom and I forgot all about them until a few months ago. I just had my second baby and the first one, while I love her dearly, is a germ bucket and brings home every cold she comes in contact with. Now that I have a newborn, I needed to stay healthy. So, I started taking these again just to see. So far this year my husband has had three colds, and I have not been sick at all. I take one pill in the morning and one at night, not nearly what the recommended dosage is on the bottle. When I do start to feel something coming on, a slight cough or runny nose, I double the dose to two pills, twice a day, and I haven't had anything develop past that first day of feeling slightly off. I have to say, I"m a believer! I think these are great!
5.0 - Follow the directions on the bottle and you'll be set!
I've been using this stuff for a long time. If you start seeing early signs of a cold or flu, and you take 3 of these a few times a day, you'll be better by the next day. IT'S AMAZING! Follow the directions on the bottle!
5.0 - Five Stars
Does our family good in protecting from colds.
4.0 - Get well and stay well
Great product and helps cut the duration of colds and such, especially if you take it as soon as you think you're coming down with something, or others around you are so you can hopefully keep from getting sick. Even take as a daily supplement. Admittedly they've changed things at some point over the past several years, it isn't as potent, but still works.
5.0 - Enormous pills with good ingredients
Amazon has a great price on these. I've been taking these off and on for the last couple of years and they seem to help me get over an illness quicker (could be psychological, but research shows that most of the ingredients are known to help with fighting the common cold, such as Vitamin C, etc.). Be forewarned that these are giant pills (about 3/4" to 1" long) and they are very fragrant (to me it is like an olive smell). I am a repeat customer for these.
5.0 - Great for a cold
I keep this product in stock to help prevent colds. I've also taken this product after having gotten a cold, and my body healed much faster that I expected. I actually started using this products from recommendations from 2 other friends who use it.
5.0 - WELLNESS FORMULA
I am a casting director. I meet, interview and shake hands with up to approximately 150 people per day. There are just so many times you can use Purell after shaking hands. Wellness Formula is the best......every day I simply follow the directions and take it in every season. An especially fine product for people who are prone to continual colds and allergy complaints.
5.0 - Five Stars
Great product to use especially when you are coming down with a cold etc.
4.0 - Great formula to stay healthy
I take this product during the cold/flu season. If I start to feel sick I take a couple every 3-4 hours. It always helps me feel better. It contains all the best immune boosters.
5.0 - Keeps illness from getting really bad
I have been taking this product for two years now. Anytime I feel a little run down or that I might be coming down with something I start talking these as directed. Whatever the illness is it never seems to get really bad. It makes what might have been a really bad cold and makes it a slightly annoying cold instead. Coincidence...maybe but I think I'll stick with this product.
4.0 - Definately Feeling Much Happier! not sure on the cold yet
So I had this horrible sinus cold for over a month! I was at a Mind Body and Spirit Fair, and was told to try it. It was sold out in most health food stores. I have been taking if for three days now. I have been taking 3 tablets (P.U. they are stinky) every four hours. So far, I have noticed my coughing is a lot less, but still there. The for sure thing I notice is a increase in my mood. I feel more energetic and happy. Now maybe it is just my mind playing tricks on me. But so far, I think it is great for my well being! The cold is about done, but the cough kind of lingers.........so time will tell. I would recommend this to friends for a feeling of energy and well being.
5.0 - Great product!
Helps to boost your immune system but as any vitamin/supplement shouldn't be taken on an empty stomach. Doesn't really smell great but definitely does the job. I took two caps in AM and two after dinner. It helped me to finally get over many reoccurring colds that I battled the entire winter. Definitely would recommend this product!
5.0 - Miracle Pills
I swear by these vitamins! No need for the flu-shot when taking these regularly, they truly keep your immune system strong. My boyfriend was coming down with a cold and was experiencing flu like systems when I told him to go out and buy this product. He took 6 pills and was completely fine the next morning. I take 2 pills daily, and have not been sick yet - even when exposed to others who had the flu. Strongly recommend for warding off colds and flu!
5.0 - Miraculous Results
This was recommended to me by a friend who has also suffered with allergies and summer colds for years. I was in the midst of the worst bout of head and chest congestion when I started taking this. It MAY be coincidence, but within 24 hours, my body was fighting back and winning. Since I began taking these capsules, I have eliminated the use of antihistimines and decongestants. NO Sinus Headaches! I do not take them all the time. I take one a day if symptoms begin. After 3 days, I do not need them. I have breezed through Cottonwood season this year, while those around me have suffered.

5.0 - I've been directly exposed to colds and just take the recommended dosage for this and have avoided getting sick
I've used this for about a year now and it works wonders keeping me from getting sick. I've been directly exposed to colds and just take the recommended dosage for this and have avoided getting sick. You do need to be careful if you are taking other vitamins that you are not taking to much of something.
5.0 - Effective product
These really work. I have no idea why, but I took 1 a day religiously last year and never even got a cold. At the first sign of getting sick I increased the dose to 1 or 2 after every meal. DO NOT TAKE ON AN EMPTY STOMACH or you'll get sick. Well worth the price and I will continue to buy them and recommend to others.

Just love this stuff! It actually works and I've recommended it to many friends. Even if you take it after you start with a cold it will lessen the severity.
5.0 - Helps fight colds
I use these every time I'm on the verge of sickness. It typically curbs the common cold!
4.0 - Seems to work
I just started using this a few months ago. It seems to work. After a change in jobs and housing last year, I suddenly started getting sick all the time. Probably some combination of stress/sleep deprivation, environment, and exposure to people in closer quarters, but these things seem to do the trick. I went on a work trip where I was working 12 hour days and having so socialize for another 7 hours afterwards and these kept me from catching a cold I felt coming on. I recommend them.
4.0 - This works great for me, but capules stick in my lower throat
I've used Wellness for years, and I swear by it. I like to joke that it is my placebo of choice. When I feel the first hint of something coming on, I start taking it. I can usually stop the cold or flu in its tracks.
5.0 - BEST IN CLASS
I recommend this product to any1 that loves to stay healthy!! Mom dad daughter son father cousin spouse lol EVERYONE!!!! I have bought this product for a couple years now and colds flu's and anything else cant stick around to save them lives lol. Overall very satisfied with this product!
5.0 - This product works!
Wellness Formula really works! If you take it daily it will help to boost your immume system and help guard againt colds and other bugs that runs you down. Taken and the first sign of a cold it will shorten the term and severity. I've used it for three years now.
5.0 - Game Changer! They reverse colds!
This pills are MAGIC! I gotten chills and the beginning stages of a sore throat at least three times this winter, at the start of my symptoms I took these and I didn't end up sick once! These really work.
5.0 - Works great
I've been taking one of these each morning, plus a package of Emergen-C and I've only been sick once in 4 years. I used to get a cold every year. I start taking them when it gets cold and everybody starts getting sick and quit in the spring when flu and cold season is over. Works great.
5.0 - BEST THING EVER.....WELLNESS FORMULA
Great PRICE as compared to anywhere we have shopped for them. I'm 61, and until.I was about 46, I used to get bronchitis like 3 times a year since high school, like clockwork. My last bout, my wife learned of Wellness Formula, I took those, and I mean to say, I was so sick, I took those, and I have never had bronchitis since; and I must add, it cleared up in only a few days. The worst thing I've ever had in all these years is a cold. If I start getting a cold, I grab these, and it's gone quickly.
5.0 - I swear by this stuff - always have a bottle on hand.
I am pretty convinced that this works - especially if I take it consistently for a few days at the very start of a cold. I didn't get sick for 5 years, possibly because I took a few tablets whenever I felt a cold coming on. Last spring I got the flu that was going around and I was horribly sick despite taking the tablets, but recovered fully in only three days. I used to take plain echinacea (for about 20 years) and Wellness Formula seems to be much more effective. Sure, might be a placebo effect, but I'm cool with that since I'm almost never sick!
5.0 - ... I've been using it for over 12 years It's wonderful
Whenever you feel rundown or starting to get a cold take this every three hours and you're almost certain not to get sick I've been using it for over 12 years It's wonderful
5.0 - LOVE IT
This stuff is AMAZING! It always helps me get over colds faster, or completely avoid them if I start taking this right when you feel the sore throat. I have turned many friends onto it and they love it too. A MUST HAVE!
5.0 - The BEST immune builder hands down
The BEST immune builder hands down! Been using this for years...at the very hint of a cold or flu..double the dosage and wham..GONE!
5.0 - Fantastic capsules
I've used these for several years. I take one a day. It's the only pill I take - and I'm 72! If I get a cold which would normally last 3 weeks, I start taking 3 of these immediately and follow with 3 every 3 or 4 days. As a result, my nose might run a little, but I feel no effects otherwise - and the cold is gone in one week! These pills are wonderful!
5.0 - Excellent, a little pricey but super good to keep on hand.
Excellent if you use immediately when you feel strange, a cold coming on or your immune system compromised. I keep this on hand at all times. I gave it a 4 because it's not going to completely ward off illness 100% of the time but it can certainly stop it from going further or minimize the severity.
5.0 - Excellent
I have used Wellness Formula for quite some time now and I can definitelly atest that it noticebly helps with helping at the onset of a cold or whenever I feel weak or about to get sick.
5.0 - Five Stars
Shortens my colds a bit or at least seems to diminish the severity
5.0 - Great for your immune system
I've been taking these immune boosters for a number of years now and I can say that the effects have been positive. For health maintenance, I take 1-2 capsules each day. If I'm feeling a little off-balance(like when the weather gets unseasonbly cold) I'll take 3-6 capsules each day until I feel better. The recommended dosage on the bottle is different. I've experimented a bit and found that this amount works for me.
5.0 - This stuff really works, either by the placebo effect ...
This stuff really works, either by the placebo effect or by its physical properties. I don't know which. If I take it according to the directions as soon as I have the first inkling of a cold or flu or when I am exposed to them, I don't get sick. Ever.
5.0 - Price I paid on Amazon was better then Vitacost
I've been taking this for about 4 years now. It is a MUST whenever I catch cold/flu or my immune system is low! Price I paid on Amazon was better then Vitacost.
5.0 - Best way to keep away a cold
The minute I feel a scratchy throat / post-nasal drip / general exhaustion, I pop a few of these vitamins. I don't take them daily... only when I'm starting to feel sick or traveling. I used to get a cold about 3-4 times a year; since I've been taking these (upon the first signs), I haven't been sick at all. Whether it's placebo effect or what, I'm not sure. But I can say they've worked incredibly well for me.
5.0 - Will never be without this product again
This stuff has changed how often I get sick and how long it lasts. I cannot imagine how I could ever go without having a bottle on hand. I have tried TONS of immune supplements. This one is great, don't know how they do it. This and a some oregano oil will whip a cold in a few days flat.
5.0 - This stuff really works
Been taking this for several years now, and the number and severity of colds has greatly diminished. The trick is to get started at the first sign of symptoms, or even sooner if you know you've been exposed by a snotty nosed person. I find that I don't need to take the amount prescribed, cutting back to a couple of capsules every few hours seems to do the trick for me. Worth their weight in gold!
5.0 - Five Stars
This stuff is what you need. Shorten or prevent that cold.
5.0 - HEAD THE FLUE OFF AT THE PASS
THE MOMENT I START TO FEEL LIKE I AM COMING DOWN WITH THE FLUE OR A COLD (ITCHY THROAT, HEADACHE, MALAISE, ETC.) I START TAKING THE WELLNESS FORMULA BY SOURCE NATURALS. IT WORKS EVERY TIME. I START TAKING 2 TABLETS EVERY 4 HOURS, AND USUALLY I NEVER GET A FULL BLOWN CASE OF THE FLUE. MY FRIENDS, WHO DON'T TAKE WELLNESSS, WILL SUFFER FOR 4-6 DAYS WITH SYMTOMS, WHILE I AM OVER IT IN A DAY OR TWO! I'VE BEEN USING THIS PRODUCT SINCE THE MID EIGHTIES,TRY IT AND SEE FOR YOURSELF.
5.0 - This product is great! While everyone around me is sick and in ...
This product is great! While everyone around me is sick and in the bed sick, I'm not with this product. I begin taking this at the first feeling of a cold coming on. It pumps up your immune system. Great product and worth the money!!!!
5.0 - number one !
this is the number one product for keeping my immune system strong. even at the slightest possibility of getting a cold this fights it off the same day. only thing: make sure to drink at least half a glass of water after swallowing these...if they don't go all the way down to your stomach and start dissolving ....that burp is going to be nasty ! you might even get a little smoke effect from the powdered herbs flying out of your mouth...not a nice feeling at all
5.0 - Natural Cold Cure & Immune Support
Capsules are the WAY to go for these babies. There are so many wonderful and healing herbs in here but the smell and taste can be difficult for some. Take with some juice and make sure to purchase the capsule form. We take 3x a week to maintain health and increase if people are sick around us or doing times when the immune system is compromised. Can be used to naturally treat colds.
5.0 - Has made a big difference in winter colds
I've been using this product for many years as it seems like since childhood I was always the first person to catch every bug and the last one to get better. This has been one of the most effective things I have found to ramp up your immune system during cold and flu season. I do not take it all the time but keep it on hand at all times so that at the first sign of itchy throat or ookey feeling I can start taking it. Often, if I can get after it fast enough, it never develops into a full blown illness. If I do get sick, I believe this helps me fight it off a lot faster. If a family member comes down with cold or flu I always take it and oftentimes do not develop sickness. I did have sinus surgery awhile back and I think that helped a lot as far as getting sick all of the time but I have no doubt that I would be catching a lot more crud in the winter if not for this stuff. It has made a huge difference for me.
5.0 - Five Stars
Always kicks my cold before it decides to stick around. Always have this on hand.
5.0 - The best. I take 6 of these 3 times a ...
The best. I take 6 of these 3 times a day when I feel a cold coming on and I never get sick. (I used to get sick all the time). I also take 3 at least twice a day daily.
5.0 - Good product good price
This product works to knock down a cold at the first sign of symptoms.
5.0 - Best Vitamin
I have been using Wellness Formula for well over a decade. It truly is the best vitamin I have found to either prevent me from getting sick when everyone around me has a cold, flu, etc, or to help me quickly recover when I've already gotten sick.
5.0 - Fantastic Immune System Booster!
Wow! Wow! Wow! I love these wellness supplements. They are great for boosting your immune system and stopping a cold right in its tracks. I take this at the first indication of a cold or sore throat. You can take up to 12 in one day. I haven't gotten really sick in a very long time because I usually get rid of it before the little sniffles turn into a serious cold. I highly recommend.

4. Great Lakes Gelatin - Collagen Hydrolysate Kosher - Unflavored Protein - 16 oz

View this supplement on Amazon.com

5.0 - So many benefits!
I've been using this product to help with weight loss, skin appearance, and joint care, and I think it's working for all my needs. It is pretty much tasteless, and dissolves really well in my coffee. I feel that this product has help curb my appetite, specifically for sweets, helped my skin look fresher, and eased my achy joints. Specifically, I am only in my 30's, but I have two old sports injuries that make my knee and ankle ache from time to time. This seems to have lessened those pains. Also, I followed the recommended dosage, but added into my diet slowly. I've have a sensitive stomach, but by following the directions I was able to get to a full dosage within 2 weeks without stomach issues. I would also add that it does dissolve in cold liquids, but I think it's better in hot ones. I put 2 tablespoons in my morning coffee and 2 tablespoons in my nightly decaf coffee. I bought a tasty chocolate flavored decaf coffee on amazon and it works great at night when used to take my gelatin and makes it feel like a sweet treat.
5.0 - Very satisfied!
I take this every morning. I can mix it in cold or hot drinks and dissolves very easily. I like that it's so easy to use and I am getting my protein.
5.0 - Gelatin
Like because it mixes in cold water.
5.0 - Great product
Great! No real flavor, but it tastes better with cold than hot I think.
5.0 - Help for arthritis
This product has helped me tremendously with arthritis in my thumb. I take two heaping tablespoons per day in a liquid, any liquid because it has no taste and dissolves easily it hot or cold liquid.
5.0 - Dissolves better in warm liquid than cold but is much easier ...
Dissolves better in warm liquid than cold but is much easier to use than cold water formula. Tasteless. I put it in juice daily. an unexpected bonus. Strong fingernails!
5.0 - My joints feel much better. This product is good because it mixes in ...
My joints feel much better. This product is good because it mixes in anything hot or cold you don't taste it at all.
5.0 - I love using this in my coffee especially when I don't ...
I love using this in my coffee especially when I don't have time to eat breakfast, the protein keeps me satisfied! I can mix it in hot or cold liquids. I haven't been using it long enough to notice any improvement in my skin or hair.
5.0 - Great Product
Purchased this product after a lot of research after breaking my ankle while on vacation. It deserves the 5 stars! Awesome quality, but it would be nice if it was a little cheaper. Dissolves great in hot liquid with no taste or smell at all. Takes a little longer to dissolve in cold liquid, tastes best if flavored drink. There is a small taste/smell in water but it didn't bother me. Easy to digest with one tablespoon each AM and PM, no problems at all with that. No major differenced noted as of yet, but have only been using it for a week. Will update when I run out! Thanks Great Lakes!
5.0 - This is the best and most affordable collagen out there
This is the best and most affordable collagen out there. I've shopped around and really hate to spend too much on supplements, but am very happy with this brand. It dissolves completely in hot or cold liquids, is odorless and tasteless, and is full of protiens. I use it in my coffee every morning, in teas and soups, and smoothies, and no one knows they're getting a shot of protiens. A happy outcome: longer hair, longer eyelashes, stronger nails!
4.0 - I like this better than the regular gelatin
I like this better than the regular gelatin, because this is refined and does not clump up. Regular gelatin becomes jello-like when mixed in a cold drink. But this is less likely to do that. I haven't noticed any benefits when consuming this. But then again, I am not actively monitoring how I feel\look while taking it.
5.0 - Dissolves easily
I've tried several brands, and this dissolves so easily even in cold liquid. I have been taking gelatin (2 scoops twice daily) for about 3 months and I'm not sure yet if it helps with skin/joints/nails. It does have a lot of protein too, so if you're looking for tasteless protein powder, this is a great one.
5.0 - Mixes easily with cold liquids
Does exactly what it says. Mixes easily with cold liquids. It is not from the USA so that may concern some as to the purity.
5.0 - Great Hot or Cold !
I love this product. I put it in my smoothies, & THM muffins. It even mixes well in my "Rocket Fuel" coffee. It mixes well in hot or cold. No taste and no chalky texture, very smooth.
5.0 - So far so good, hoping it works as well as others say
Have been using the collagen for about a week now. My first impressions are that it is a fine white powder that dissolves quickly in my hot or warm coffee and then has no detectable flavor, odor, or consistency change. I cannot speak to how well it dissolves in cold fluids or how it tastes in water as I have not tried that.
5.0 - My 3-week Results.
I'm 45 and have been taking 2 tablespoons daily in my cold green tea or hot coffee for 3 weeks. My skin is much better - it's more youthful looking, more "plump". It rivals that of my teenagers. From my research, I think this has to do with how the amino acids repair cell walls, helping them retain moisture. I'm using less lotion on my face.
5.0 - I love it!
I love that this isn't flavored, so I can add it to whatever I want. It dissolves quickly in hot or cold. I am on my 3rd can, my skin looks better and I feel great. I have recommended this to my daughter.
5.0 - love love love
I really love this collagen. I have been on it now for about two months. I've always had "nice" skin but I had no idea it could improve even more. The texture is so smooth and silky and I honestly can't stop touching it. My eyelashes have also grown quite a bit and look amazing. I got lash extensions about six months ago and after they fell off my lashes kind of stopped growing (shorter than they had ever been before, and for a few months when they normally would regrow). I was completely shocked when I woke up one day and just noticed that my lashes were SO long and voluminous. Also, my hair and nails are also growing very quickly and are very healthy. There is absolutely no taste with this powder so I am truly shocked at some of the reviews that say they can't bear the taste (unless maybe you're just drinking it with plain/cold water, which shouldn't be the case!)
5.0 - This is my second time ordering Great Lakes Collagen
This is my second time ordering Great Lakes Collagen. I noticed my hair is thicker and even my eyelashes are longer with my first one, so I ordered it again. I take 2 tbls. twice a day in my coffee or smoothie. Dissolves in hot or cold beverages with no taste or smell...yay!
5.0 - Fantastic product that has worked well for me!
I was skeptical at first, as I am with most supplements. However, this product took me by surprise. First and foremost, I love that it is soluble in cold and hot drinks. And has no taste, to me at least. But to the benefits of the product for me: increased weight loss/metabolism, helped hair loss, skin/muscle tone. To be fair, I use it in conjunction with a healthier lifestyle (improved diet, mild exercise), but it is a great addition I added 3 months into my New Year's resolution. Some have asked me, how do you know it's not just the diet and exercise? Well, I hit a plateau with the weight loss for 6 weeks, in part due to a medication I need to be on for migraines which is notorious for weight gain. I was happy to see that once I began adding this into my morning and evening routine, the weight loss picked up again--really quickly. I'm now back to my size I was 4 years ago which I thought would be impossible. I can only advocate for myself, what works for one may not for someone else. We're all unique--I'm glad I finally found a product my body responds to.
5.0 - Five stars so far, no issues.
I have been using this for less than a week now and it has been great. If anything adverse comes up, I would update this review. My son got this for me and the one I got was Hot or Cold water soluble here on Amazon. No lumps there. I use it in my coffee morning and evening. When I had read some reviews prior to using this, I saw some people talk about stomach issues. I have a sensitive stomach so I was very wary at first. I started a couple days using only one tablespoon. The recommended amount is two tablespoons. When I didn't get any issues, I started upping the amount to two tablespoons. No problem with my stomach- yay! My coffee does not have any altered taste as far as I can tell. I mainly got this for my joints and thinning hair. I hope it works for both because I really need my hair to get thicker and my joints to stop aching so much.
5.0 - Good Stuff
Sure is helping my nails and hair so I'm assuming it's doing other good things in the inside as well. It dissolves well in hot water but not cold.
5.0 - Great product, tasteless and dissolve in cold water perfectly
Great product , tasteless and dissolve in cold water perfectly!
5.0 - Another thing I noticed was my teeth was feeling funny. I had no idea that collagen affected your ...
Now, I have only been using this product for a week. But, I have noticed a huge difference in my body. I am 50yrs old, AA, and I have always had soft skin, but since I have been going through the change I have noticed a huge difference in my feet, my hands, and my hair. I also noticed that my knees were giving me a lot of trouble. Well, I started taking two tablespoon full in a cup of hot water, twice a day. I cut back at the end of the week to one tablespoon full, twice a day. Okay, to start off....I noticed some pulling in my chest, and some pain in my knees. It must have been moving into the arteries and joints very quickly. Another thing I noticed was my teeth was feeling funny. I had no idea that collagen affected your teeth. My hair is in a protective style right now, so I can not make any claims as to the affect that it has made on my hair. I have some very small wrinkles under my eyes that are not noticeable to many, but they have not filled in. My nails were nearly clear...you could see through them...and now you can't. They are a off white color, but I am going to let them grow out more to see how much it fills in to the tips of my nails because the longer the nail is....the more collagen it needs. And yes, they do feel stronger. My knees have stopped popping, but I still have pain. But, I suffer with arthritis. But, I am amazed that my knees have stopped popping, as far as bringing them up to my chest. When I stand up, and squat down, completely to the floor....I get a pop. But, I have to say I am impressed with the effects and results....and its only been a week. I had no idea that collagen affected your arteries, but it is a tissue also. I would have to say that if you are experiencing any changes in your skin, hair, and nails to give it a try. I have made some chicken soup, and I also put it in my soup. But, I don't think I would start off with the amount that I did. Start out small. Oh, yes...it doesn't have a taste and it dissolves well in hot liquids. It dissolves in cold liquids, but it leaves a hard crust edging on my cup. Your body temperature will completely dissolve the product, but I prefer it in hot food, or liquids. You can find the ingredient list on Iherb or swansonvitamins. I will update at a later date, when my nails grow longer, or when I remove my protective hair style.
5.0 - I have noticed a slightly better elasticity/tightening in my skin
Have been using for about a month. Will definitely continue to order this product. I have noticed a slightly better elasticity/tightening in my skin. Mixes very well, no taste, great for hot or cold beverages.
5.0 - Perfect for daily use
I like the fact this product dissolves in cold water and doesn't change the texture of the liquid. I add a heaping tablespoon to my coffee in the morning which means I get my gelatin most every day. Have used Great Lakes Gelatin products for a few years and am very happy to have found this item. Already on my second canister and sent 1 to my mother!
5.0 - Great Lakes Collagen
I continue to buy this as it helps my pain level, and I also feel better when taking. I have found no appreciable taste when I use it in coffee or tea. I have found that it dissolves much better in hot liquid than in cold. Thus, I only use in hot drinks now.
5.0 - Review on mixability and taste only
I just started taking this for a few days so I can only comment on the taste and mixing. It dissolves amazingly even in cold water; drop the 2 spoonfuls, stir for 5 seconds and it's done!
4.0 - Clumpy + After taste
Mixes well with cold water, but it does clump if it's not mixed right away. It does have a strange after taste that is hardly detectible, but since I'm pregnant, I think it is just a little bit emphasized. I have been mixing it with no-sugar-added apple juice which disguises the taste efficiently. It also works (for me) to throw it into a smoothie or into coffee. Like I said, though, the after taste really isn't that noticeable if you wanted to just mix it with water and take a shot of it. :)
5.0 - Don't recommend in cold but GREAT for HOT liquids
Not great in cold but PERFECT IN HOT
5.0 - Great Product
This is a great product for adding protein to my diet. It doesn't dissolve quickly in cold water, so if I am going to enjoy it in a cold drink, I mix it in a little warm water first, and then add that to my cold drink. Otherwise, the collagen takes a while to dissolve.
4.0 - I like it.
I just purchased a second canister. I am using this in hopes that my knees won't ache as much after my workout routines. I take 2 tbsp mixed in 8 ounces of water at night and so far I can truly say the knee pain has not been as bad. I actually didn't notice that it was making a difference until someone asked about my knees and I realized they hadn't been troubling me. It tastes kind of gross but I got used to it really fast. Now I barely notice the taste. I have never mixed it into any other than water so I can comment on what would make the taste better. I can give the following tip: you'll have quicker results dissolving it in luke warm to hot water. It'll dissolve in cold but it'll take a minute. I can't say if this gives you great skin (I actually think my nails are just as brittle) but I can say there's been a noticeable improvement in my joint pain.
4.0 - Drink fast!
Just bought another batch. I wouldn't say anything miraculous has transpired during the first order, but I'm willing to stick it out. It has a taste, don't be fooled! We've tried it in every drink combo- water, warm or cold, juice, wine, tea, coffee... One scoop in coffee in the morning and one in tea in the evening and I can get it down. The worst was trying to dilute in something cold.
5.0 - Hair Growth Is My Goal
I just started taking the Gelatin so I am not sure it is going to do what I am taking it for. I read in a website that it helps hair to grow faster, which is my goal. I also read on the packaging of the Gelatin that it also helps nails which is a bonus! I was a bit disappointed in that it doesn't dissolve well in cold liquids, like juice. However, I was very pleased that it dissolved well in hot tea and hot coffee. If I get an opportunity, It has no after taste and is truly unflavored. I will hopefully be able to post later how well I am doing with the hair growth.
4.0 - I'm very happy with this product
I'm very happy with this product. I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 only because it does not dissolve smoothly in cold liquids.
5.0 - Great quality for a good price.
Dissolves well without an odd flavor in both hot or cold liquids.
5.0 - Love this product
Love this product. It had no taste and I use it in my morning coffee. It says that you can use it in hot or cold liquids but I found that warm works better.
5.0 - Take your daily dose ! :)
It took a few drinks to get used to it, but I told myself, "hey, that's the flavor of Jell-o!" and that seemed to make it less weird! I try to double up and put all 4 tablespoons into a large glass of cold water, and it does take more time to dissolve -- there are little wisps, sort of like egg-drop soup left behind for a while. Keep stirring, they'll dissolve eventually!
5.0 - Perfect way to add protein for my elderly mother
Dissolves completely in cold liquids. Perfect way to add protein for my elderly mother.
5.0 - Good product
This dissolves easily into hot or warm water. It's not so great dissolving into cold water, but that's not a problem for me. It's essentially flavorless and is quick and easy to measure out. I appreciate the simple way to add protein to my day and the hair, skin, and nail benefits.
4.0 - Good - Gels in Cold Liquid
Seemed to help with better bowel motility. I just can't stir it fast enough in cold liquid. It gels.
5.0 - Better hair skin and nails
I eat paleo and collagen is all the rage. When it's hot outside I don't feel like drinking bone broth so I bought some of this. It seems to work great. Since I have started taking it, my hair and nails are growing like crazy. My hair stylist was like you have the fastest growing hair I have ever seen, what's your secret. I don't care for the beefy taste but it mixes well and easily into cold, hot or room temp liquids.
5.0 - Five Stars
Unflavored and blends well in hot or cold liquids.
4.0 - Great (for the most part)
Friends have told me this is flavorless. So far I have mixed it with milk (sweetened and unsweetened), and it has a very mild after taste, and doesn’t seem to completely dissolve. However, I have only used with cold liquid so far, and have only stirred (not blended), if that helps. It does seem to help my joints though, hugely necessary because I cannot take over the counter anti-inflammatories.
5.0 - Great products so far
I really like the product and use the packets for travel. Posted my review in the single serving packets product. Note the product works well in hot or cold beverage - with no chewy thickening like regular gelatin lol
5.0 - This works perfectly.
This works perfectly. For those people that said it does not dissolve in cold liquid please read directions before commenting. It clearly says to use room temperature water ( just a little bit) put in the 2 tablespoons of the powder, mix it, and then you add the cold beverage. I have not noticed any results because it has not been that long since I started using this supplement. I always have some type of liquid with me it is very easy to drop in the powder. I remember to take it rather than pills/vitamins etc.
5.0 - Great Collagen for Joint Care
This collagen is wonderful. I use it for the benefits it provides for skin, hair, nails, and joints. My husband has especially noticed a wonderful difference in his joints since beginning to take this. He eats about 2 scoops worth a day now, but began with four. I also really enjoy how this collagen dissolves so easily and even in cold water. I add it to soups, smoothies, oatmeal and more.
4.0 - Overall good
I like this, good value for grassfed beef collagen. It is hydrolyzed but it doesn't dissolve well in cold liquids. Room temperature or warm is much better, then it's no issue. Not a huge fan of the dispensing method, since it's a small hold toward the middle of the can, it gets stuck around the sides.
5.0 - Five Stars
Excellent product especially in the colder months. Less skin and hair dryness!
5.0 - 4th can and counting...
After using this product for a few weeks, it dawned on me that my knees no longer popped and hurt while walking up and down the stairs in our house! I have found mixing this powder with a cold beverage takes extra effort to dissolve, so I put it in my morning hot coffee, which dissolves easily. My husband has decided to join in this week, we're hoping he sees good results as well. If so, I will be buying cans in multiples!
5.0 - nurses and all my friends were AMAZED at my speedy recovery
This stuff works! I took it faithfully before and after major surgery. The doctors, nurses and all my friends were AMAZED at my speedy recovery. I would highly recommend it. It dissolves best in warm or hot liquids, not so much in cold. I found it to be mostly flavorless. At least not enough flavor to bother me.
5.0 - Can't live without this stuff!!!
Love this stuff! I'very tried other collagen brands and was able to detect a smell and slight taste when I would put it in my coffe, but not at all with Great Lakes Collagen. This is a high quality collagen and your body will benefi the so much from it daily. It not only aids in skin, hair, and nail health, but it is a fantastic way to improve joint health. Before taking collagen I would have severe pain in my wrists whenever the weather turned cold or rainy. Now, since I've been taking it daily for 3-4 weeks, my joint pain is gone.
5.0 - Like it!
Who knows if this is working (I'm hoping for less-wrinkled skin and help for joint/arthritis pain), but it IS very dissolvable and has no taste--UNLESS you mix it with just a little tap water, then you get a hint of...beef. Ick. So just don't do that! I mix in with my (cold) half and half and have organic, collagen-enriched coffee every morning (San Francisco Organic French Roast, bought on Amazon).
4.0 - mix wisely!!!
I like this product best in orange juice or mixed in very well with hot coffee - I have tried it with a few things that it definitely clumps up in (iced coffee, iced tea, I'm guessing it will happen with anything too cold) and I just blended it in a smoothie for my first time - I was really excited and thought the amount of fruit and greens would definitely overpower the gelatin but unfortunately this is one my failed attempts that I will not be trying as a mixer again... it made my smoothie weirdly frothy (in a bad way) and it could just be in my head.... but for the first time it REALLY made my drink taste like beef :( very sad & disappointing results. I will continue to mix this in my HOT coffee & orange juice (it works really well with OJ!) but everything else I'll steer clear of - when you pick the wrong mix, it goes VERY bad and ruins your whole drink. I have yet to notice a difference with my hair/nails/skin... I'm holding out hope!
5.0 - Mixes Well in Both Hot and Cold Liquids
First time user of this product, and I'm not disappointed! The collagen powder mixes well in either hot or cold liquids and does so without clumps or grainy residue. It also goes down very smoothly and doesn't feel heavy in your stomach. I'm now "sold" on this collagen product, and will definitely be a repeat customer!
5.0 - Absolutely love this. Does not dissolve as easily in cold ...
Absolutely love this. Does not dissolve as easily in cold water so I just mix it in with my coffee in the morning. Absolutely tasteless. I have noticed a huge improvement in the health and growth rate of my hair and nails. My friends even noticed and asked me what I was doing and they have ordered this product because of my results. You wont regret purchasing this!
5.0 - best on amazon
dissolves fast in hot and cold liquids
5.0 - Nice supplement for Collagen
I have been taking this to supplement my collagen and this particular one in the green jar will dissolve instantly in hot or cold liquid. It also does not really have a taste so I have put it in my coffee but I do prefer to put it in my cup of broth.
5.0 - Item arrived as described and I have been totally happy with the stuff
Item arrived as described and I have been totally happy with the stuff! I stir it into warm water (it does dissolve in cold, but not as well it seems) one glass in the AM and one glass in the PM. It would be better in tea but I'm not a big tea person.
4.0 - Great Lakes Gelatin-better than Knox!
I like the fact that this gelatin mixes in so well with either hot or cold liquid. It has no taste, but a faint odor that I had to get used to. I haven't used it long enough to tell any difference in my joint pain, which is my reason for using it.
5.0 - great protein powder and helps my arthritis
great kosher protein powder! i put in smoothies or any hot or cold drink to add protein. seems to help with arthritis too
5.0 - Easily mixed into even cold beverages though I'd reccomnend stirring ...
High quality collagen that is water soluble. Easily mixed into even cold beverages though I'd reccomnend stirring into water before adding to smoothies to avoid clumping. If you're going to drink it with just water, I'd reccomnend using a small amount of water and chugging it quickly- the taste is a little musty.
4.0 - I don’t like the flavor much so I put it in some ...
It does have some what of a flavor but it’s not too strong. I don’t like the flavor much so I put it in some kind of flavored drink. It also takes a couple minutes to dissolve in cold water, but it does dissolve fully. (I have not taken this long enough to have benefits, so I cannot say if it works yet.)
5.0 - Shiny glowing skin
I suffer from terrible dry skin in the Midwest winter, and was also battling severe cystic acne the past few months after starting oral contraceptives. I decided to give collagen a try after reading that the supplement helps the skin. I've been drinking this for the past 2 weeks. The flavor, at first, was pretty awful, especially when mixed with cold liquids. But I've been mixing it with hot lemon water, and it makes it tolerable. I still don't like the taste, but I love the effect it has on my skin. The skin on my face and on my legs, which are normally ashy, are glowing and smooth. The scars on my face are fading well, and I look like I've been to a spa every day. This collagen regime in combination with my daily mild exfoliation is making me look fresh faced and healthy. I'm making my boyfriend take this now as well in his morning smoothie, to see if it also helps his skin.
4.0 - I can drink this easily in coffee and hot tea
I can drink this easily in coffee and hot tea. I tried dissolving it in cold orange juice once--ONCE. It not only clumped but tasted absolutely awful.
4.0 - I use this to help with "leaky gut" from SIBO ...
I use this to help with "leaky gut" from SIBO. I find it easier to take in my herbal tea in the evenings and have used it in bone broth as well. It says hot or cold liquids, but I find it does just ok in cold liquids; you have to wait a little longer for it to fully dissolve so it isn't clumped (if not using a "shaker"). I'm still healing and it is probably too early for me to tell if this is working yet. I do seem to have more energy since taking this; maybe the amino acids or maybe all in my head. Received it sooner than expected, so that was a bonus!
5.0 - Five Stars
Dissolves really well in hot and cold liquids. I also don't notice any change in taste.
4.0 - It does dissolve easy, even in cold water
It does dissolve easy, even in cold water. Odd taste that is mild. I add some natural soy sauce to make it more like broth. It arrived later than other items and remember expecting a larger package. The pour sprouts arent great, you'll loose product as dust.
5.0 - Although it is tasteless and can be easily mixed in either hot/cold water or other beverage of ...
Although it is tasteless and can be easily mixed in either hot/cold water or other beverage of your choice, it is recommended to consume no more than one tablespoon per day for the first week and then increase to two tablespoons the following week to prevent the onset of diarrhea or other gastrointestinal reactions.
4.0 - good so far
Then party consistent with this product for the last month I think it is working I think it takes time to build in your system like anything else I'm on my 2nd canister and so far so good I mix it with hot tea seems to blend just fine haven't actually tried it with a cold drink only because nothing is totally tasteless and odorless but it's good and I will continue to repurchase
5.0 - So awesome, so nutritious! GET!!!
Absolutely love this stuff! I recommend it to everyone and it has been the quickest healthiest addition to my diet in a long time. Lots of nutrition jam packed in this product. And great to heal the gut lining!!! I love that it works in cold smoothies!!!
5.0 - Very pleased with product thus far
Very pleased with product thus far. Mixes well using cold water dispensed from refrigerator. I placed two rounded Tbsp in small glass Mason jar, then filled about about 1/3 jar with water, quickly mixed with fork, finished filling jar with water, then repeated mixing quickly. Well-ah. No chunks in bottom or floating around. Very light protein taste. Already feeling effects in less than a week. Extended energy throughout the day and focus. I am feeling less pain in hip joints and feet especially. The product contained no clumps when I opened it. Very easy to scoop.
4.0 - No taste at all, not a replacement for protein, but great as a supplement!
Not a replacement for protein, but great as a supplement! I use the recommended serving size every morning in my coffee. It is cold water soluble, but I find that the stirring isn't needed if I put my collagen into a 1/4 cup of room temp water first, shake quick, then add the mixture to my cold brew coffee. No taste at all and doesn't thicken my drink. I have noticed a huge change in my hair and nails! I don't shed nearly as much, and my fingernails are growling out really long and strong. Definitely keeping in my daily routine!
5.0 - Two thumbs up
A collagen option that actually dissolves in cold liquid! And no taste whatsoever.
5.0 - No lumpiness- really does dissolve easily and completely!
Hoping for better hair and nails! It really does dissolve easily and completely in hot, cold or luke-warm liquid. There is a very slight taste, or maybe I'm imagining it, when I dissolve 2 tabs in 12 oz of water. I like it best in 1/2 V-8, 1/2 water. No taste and I get some veggies with the protein. ; )
5.0 - Very easy to use in hot and cold beverages alike
This is the first time I bought this gelatin product. Not knowing what to expect, since there have been mixed reviews, I was eager to use it and see how it performed in different temperatures when it comes to dissolving the product. I have to say that I am very happy with the powder. I can easily dissolve it in cold as well as in hot liquids without any problems. In pure water, it has a bit of a bitter taste in my opinion but that might be subjective. I don't find the taste awful or unbearable in any way and this problem can easily be circumvented by using it in a flavored drink.
5.0 - No Clumps!
This stuff is tasteless. Mixes great as promised. I am not sure why other reviewers stated they had clumps. I cold put it in anything, hot or cold and could not taste it. I ordered the NeoCell collagen powder and once used up I will order more since this is less taste to me and mixes without any small clumps.
5.0 - Better than expected
Mixes into hot drinks really well... cold drinks almost as well... love it!! Is making my skin and hair improve each day... joints slowly but have noticed improvement in the 3 months I've been taking it consistently
5.0 - Tastes like you're drinking jello
This is a fabulous product. Not only did my psoriasis clear up but my nails got longer and stronger which is something that's never happened to me. I've had spots of psoriasis that wouldn't heal for over a year and they healed right up within a week of adding this to my diet. It dissolves in room temperature liquid (had some trouble with cold liquids). I drank it dissolved in water with a few drops of MIO or Crystal Light in it. Tastes like you're drinking jello! Not bad at all for the benefits you get!
4.0 - Great boost of protein.
This product was recommended by my personal trainer so I could get more protein in my diet. I'm unable to use most Protein Powders due to FODMAP. This works great in my oatmeal, yogurt or in a cold drink; very easy to use. Just make sure you drink plenty of water after taking it.
5.0 - Mixes Easily in Cold and Hot Liquids
Mixes easily in cold or hot liquids.

This stuff dissolves very well, even in cold water.
5.0 - There is magic in that canister. One spoonful in ...
There is magic in that canister. One spoonful in a few ounces of warm organic bone broth one hour before bed puts me to sleep for 8 hours. I am doing a million other things (orange safety glasses at 8 pm to clock blue light, cold room, melatonin, BHRT), but was still not sleeping. This seems to have cracked the insomnia code for now (shutting off EMF is too complicated?). The maintenance list just gets longer as you get older (57) but the other options are to suffer and lag in performance, or take medicines that address the symptom and not the root cause. I would rather do this than sleeping pills (associated with dementia). KEEP SEARCHING FOR THE MOLECULE YOUR BODY IS ASKING FOR AND NEEDS.
5.0 - Great product to add collagen to diet!
Great product, dissolves in cold or hot liquid, odorless, tasteless. I put in my coffee in the morning. I've also used it in smoothies. Bought mainly to boost protein and because collagen is a healthy thing to supplement. It seems to have helped my nails (they're usually v brittle), and my joints. Will continue to purchase.
5.0 - This was recommended by my personal trainer who is very well versed ...
This was recommended by my personal trainer who is very well versed in diet. This stuff is great - it dissolves instantly even in cold liquids and has zero taste. Great way to get collagen.
5.0 - Wish I would have tried sooner!
I was skeptical at first and had wanted to try this collagen for some time but just was hesitant. Boy, do I wish I would have tried it sooner! =) I love adding this to both my morning fruit smoothies as well as my evening cups of coffee! It dissolves amazingly in both hot and cold liquids with no clumping! I was worried about the taste/odor, but shouldn't have been! There is absolutely none! I have only consistently been using it a week so far, but I can already tell a difference that my ankles and knees are not as stiff as they were previously before I started taking this collagen. This will definitely be a product and company I purchase from in the future!
5.0 - So much better than grocery store gelatin.
Super dissolving. Even in cold water. Tasteless.
5.0 - Yep, Odorless and Tasteless. Dissolves Instantly in Any Liquid Hot or Cold.
Flavorless, colorless, odorless, and dissolves in any liquid hot or cold. You can literally put it plain water and not know it's in there.
5.0 - No Clumping and Great Health Benefits!
I love this product. I use it in my cold smoothies and I love how it doesn't clump at all and how it makes my skin glow. It's definitely helped with my nail strength as well. Go for it.
4.0 - works fine when mixed into flavoured juices
Anyone who says this is flavourless has a far less sensitive palate than I do! You can taste what is almost a yeasty, milky flavour. That said, works fine when mixed into flavoured juices, smoothies, protein shakes. I will occasionally stir into my coffee, but have to add stevia and a dash of cream to mask the taste. Have also stirred into porridge and masked with cinnamon. Must be stirred or whisked very well or it will clump, especially in cold liquids. If you don't consume it right away, it will thicken. Helps me to keep joint discomfort at bay, while upping my protein consumption. Will most likely reorder direct through Great Lakes now that I know it is worth the half dozen canister shipment they offer through their own website at a fraction of the price on Amazon.
4.0 - Dissolves easily, no miraculous results yet
I've been taking this gelatin for about a month. I don't see any significant changes in my hair, skin or nails but I may not have given it enough time yet. I do plan to continue taking it. It does dissolve really nicely in liquids though. It can get a little clumpy if the liquid is really cold but room temperature or warm liquids work great. It does have a slight taste if you just mix it with water. It's not terrible but I don't love it so I usually mask it with some apple cider vinegar. Otherwise I'd suggest mixing it in something that has it's own taste like coffee or juice.
4.0 - Great supplement with a couple quirks
I wish it dissolved in cold liquids a bit better, but really this does a good job. I deducted a star because it advertises that it dissolves in cold liquids, which I think it does, but it can be a serious ordeal to get it to do so. If you add too much at once it will clump together instead of evenly dissolving. You have to stir like a crazy person to get it all mixed in, and better make sure not to add too much at once! When dumped in the blender for a morning smothie it works just fine though. I throw about 2T in my morning smoothies. I definitely have noticed that my skin has an improved "smoother" appearance and my nails are stronger. I'm in my mid-thirties and am suddenly being carded at the liquor store again, a phenomenon that had recently stopped.
5.0 - Approved!
Love it! Does everything it says, no taste and dissolves totally even in cold water.
5.0 - Dissolves easily in cold or hot liquids
Dissolves easily in cold or hot liquids. Very mild taste. My husband doesn’t mind drinking it in plain water. I prefer adding it to coffee or smoothie to conceal the flavor.
5.0 - So happy with this product
So happy with this product! Mixes great into my smoothies and love that it can withstand hot or cold. Already ordered my second container and plan to continue buying this from now on.
5.0 - Best on the market
This is my morning go-to with coffee because it dissolves so well in hot or cold & doesn't add any taste or texture whatsoever. I recommend it to everyone, but especially when friends are going through any kind of joint or bone issues. Works really well in smoothies too. I've tested many brands & Great Lakes is the very best.
5.0 - Works in hot and cold liquid
Really does mix well and pretty tastelessly into drinks - I put it in my morning Greens+ and my evening turmeric tea. Works well in both!
5.0 - SO great!!!
so easy to use, such great health benefits. it helped my knee injury to repair so much faster. The bruising and damage went away so fast I was amazed. I will be keeping this in stock. worked in both hot and cold drinks and liquids.
5.0 - AMAZING STUFF!
AMAZING! I began taking this in hopes of helping with the healing of a broken foot. I have several broken metatarsals and a broken cubit bone in my right foot that was caused by a weight from a weight bench falling directly on top of my foot. After 4 months of being in a cast with not really wonderful healing I decided to try this. After two weeks, I noticed the swelling and pain was starting to diminish. Three weeks went by and after all that time I actually cut my toenails on my injured foot! I know that sounds gross, but my toenails had NOT GROWN at all in all that time. Four weeks went by and it was time for my Doctor's appointment. The Doctor was blown away at my progress, I am convinced that this product (and prayers!) played a huge part in that. I drink it daily - once in the morning and once in the afternoon. I find that it dissolves better in hot liquids, but colder liquids take a little longer to dissolve the product. There is a slight taste. I will continue to use this product for as long as you sell it! I am a grateful, lifetime customer. I appreciate the quality of this collagen! Thank you for this product and thank you for being an amazing seller!
5.0 - I'll be back
Dissolves great in cold drink, no odor and no flavor at all. I just started drinking it so I'll be back to let y'all know if it does what it claims.
5.0 - So pleased with this product
So pleased with this product. I have been using it on and off since purchase and it is time for another order. Great way to add collagen for joints! It mixes well with either hot or cold liquids! Yeah!
5.0 - Like it
Great product! I recently have been dealing with issues related to Lyme disease. I have added your collagen to my morning tea and my nails are looking healthier than they ever have! My joint pain has improved some as well. This product mixes easily in both hot & cold drinks I have put it in...no clumping.
5.0 - and very easy on the digestive system
Top of the line as far as gelatin suppliments go. It is cold water soluble as advertised, and very easy on the digestive system. I mix it into smoothies every morning and sometimes even just take it with a gulp of water if Im rushed for time.
4.0 - Four Stars
It's good quality but it does NOT dissolve in cold water. Only warm or room temperature liquids.
5.0 - Great product
I've been using this product for only a few weeks and was not expecting to see any noticeable results this soon. I have to admit that within the first few days of using, I had a slight headache. I simply decreases the recommended dosage and took one tbsp twice per day instead of two and that alone eliminated the headaches. The recommended daily dose, in my opinion, is a bit much and I believe my headaches were a sign that it was too much. Decreasing the dose did the trick! My nails have strengthened in just a few weeks, which was really surprising since I have had paper thin nails for some time. The product does not have a strong smell or taste. I add it to plain warm water and I can barely taste it. However, I do understand that some people are more sensitive and the very faint smell and taste may be bothersome to those individuals. The product does dissolve in cold water but dissolves quicker on warm/hot water, which is why I drink it in warm water.
5.0 - Skeptic is happy with it!
I rarely write reviews but am doing so now because I believe this stuff works. I am 65 years old and have been taking joint supplements for years due to family history of arthritis. I decided to add this to my "intakes" because making bone broth was too time consuming. I have been taking this collagen for a little over 2 months now. Six months ago I twisted one of my knuckles and it swelled up and was stiff and painful every morning. I used various creams, hot and cold treatments, etc. without success. Symptoms are now gone and joint is functional. The other day I was washing my face and it felt like my face had shrunk. I couldn't figure out what was going on. I have not lost weight and have changed nothing in terms of my diet. Well, I now think that this collagen is tightening my skin. I am losing the crease between my eyebrows and my skin looks tighter; it is smooth and more elastic. I am very much a skeptic and cynic about supplements but in this case I notice a difference and it is a good one. I take 2 T. am and pm. I just pour coffee over the morning one and chamomile tea over the night one. For me, this is a "keeper".
5.0 - Love It
Great Lakes is wonderful and works great for me. I add it to soups to meat dishes, vegetables & anything else, it is so easy to dissolve in all cold or hot foods or drinks. Being older & need more protein this is an excellent way to go for the added bump of protein. Helps bones, hair, health to added pep for daily need. Love it

Dissolved instantly hot or cold will order again
5.0 - Dissolves is cold liquid!
This was high quality gelatin that did indeed dissolve in cold liquids as advertised. I would definitely buy this product again.
5.0 - Better than bone broth
This is far superior to expensive bone broth and it dissolves in cold liquids as well as in warm. I put it in soups, coffee, cold drinks, water--it works in everything. This product was a real 'find' for me. I did a lot of research in scientific studies before finding and buying this product and I'm glad I purchased the Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate.
5.0 - Five Stars
Worked well in hot and cold drinks without any taste.
4.0 - Great product!!!
I really, really like this product. I mix it with my yogurt, sprinkle it over my vegetables, add it to juice or mix it into my rice. Because it has very little taste and smell, I can tolerate it really well. For me, this product is a better choice to add to homemade soup than the similar product in the orange canister. The one in the orange can became a bit gummy and clumpy when I added it to my pot of beans, but that may be because I did not mix it with a little cold water first. I will absolutely purchase this product again.
5.0 - It dissolves in cold liquid
I have tried several gelatins because I have weak knees. And it keeps me full when I drink my coffee with it added and have no breakfast, to loose weight. This one is OK it has a suble flavor. And it will be notice in my coffee. It disolves fast and easy but you need to practice until you learn how to dissolve it. Gelatin helps grow nails and hair. That's a side effect for me. My hair never grow more than shoulder length for all my life and Today It is down to close my waist. I hope it works for my knees as I use it just to prevent knee surgery. I give five stars because it is good for the suble flavor and easy dissolving for the price
5.0 - which makes it convenient and easy to use
This gelatin dissolves so well in hot, warm or cold, which makes it convenient and easy to use. My joints in my hands were always sore and this really helps with that.
5.0 - Amazing how well it mixes in both hot or cold ...
Has definitely helped my nails and joints. Still hoping to see results for my hair. Amazing how well it mixes in both hot or cold liquid and the taste is not overwhelming. Will continue with it . . . just bought 2 more.
5.0 - NO TASTE! NO SMELL!
Can be mixed in hot, cold or room temperature liquids. Didn't care for it in my yogurt. If cold or room temperature expect to stir a lot. I use warmed apple cider. Other family member uses cold apple juice. They like stirring I guess. NO TASTE!!! NO SMELL!!!
5.0 - All the benefits of bone broth without the work!
I have been using this for about a month for myself and my cats and have seen good results. My joints aren't as achy and my skin is less dry. My cats can't have bone due to kidney disease and this provides all the benefits and amino acids they need without the phosphorous. Great product and will definitely buy again. I also like that it mixes easily in both cold or hot liquids.
5.0 - Excellent product
Blends with hot or cold liquids and has no flavor. I add it to a cup of coffee and have been able to increase my protein intake and that has helped me stabilize my weight and improve my digestion. I had radiation damage to my gut and this has helped. I took it for 6 months before I felt the benefits, so stick with it.
5.0 - A great product
This collagen is hydrolysed so it dissolves easily in hot or cold liquids. great for hair, skin, and nails. It is tasteless, so you can put it in any food or drink without changing the taste. Great post workout.
5.0 - My joints say THANK YOU!!
The powder Collagen dissolves really well in hot and cold drinks. There is very little taste to it. I love to have the powder in my shake, it tastes really good and keeps me filled longer than just having a regular shake. I noticed a difference on my joints in just one week. I went out for a run and no discomfort on my knees, before I would feel a lot of pressure and had to stop running. I have not noticed much difference on my skin or hair but I am still happy with the results on my joints. I have shared this product with my mom, she is 58 years old, and she also noticed a difference on her knee joints. She does not feel pain going upstairs or downstairs.
5.0 - Mixes flavorlessly into anything!
I don't know whether or not this helped with my acne because I used it in combination with many things to cure a serious case of acne out of nowhere. But the acne is getting better. I also hope this has the effect of preserving my youthful skin, but I honestly don't know how I would make that judgment unless it magically makes the fine lines disappear (I'll be praying for that!! Haha). But I can say for sure that it mixes perfectly into warm water and is tasteless. Perfect addition to my morning and evening lemon honey water, and I've also mixed it into oatmeal before. It does clump in cold water but mix it enough and it will dissolve into even cold water. Hope this review helps you!
4.0 - It is a good product. It doesn't dissolve completely in cold water ...
It is a good product. It doesn't dissolve completely in cold water as it says it does; however, the good things about it outweigh this negative for me.
5.0 - Good Purchase.
I like this collagen. There is so much to be said about the collagen product. I had purchased this and fell in love the the benefits of it. It dissolves in cold and hot drinks and I mix it in my individual serving of soup. I don't taste it which is a big bonus, then I don't cringe each time I take it. I personally like mixing it in my Bai drinks. Thanks Great lakes.
5.0 - A miracle product!
I wanted to try collagen after reading about the benefits. I read several Amazon reviews before settling on this brand to try. I love his you can add it to anything, hot or cold drinks,stir it into your food, and it simply disappears. After one month people were stopping to compliment me on how great my skin looks. But the best part is my arthritic knees are now pain free! After trying one container from Amazon I now buy in bulk from Great Lakes directly, much cheaper
5.0 - Love it!
Dissolves in both cold and hot liquid.
5.0 - Great product!
I was losing alot of hair and this product did wonders for stopping my issue. It also helps add to my protein count without adding up the calories. Very slight slight taste and smell. But i am very sensitive to smells anyways. I add this to cold drinks as smoothies or even hot drinks as tea and can barely notice it. Awesome product that I will continue to buy!
5.0 - Love this product!
I always buy this from this seller, it's the best price I've found online so far. The powder dissolves in just about everything, hot or cold. The only thing I've found it does not dissolve well in is cold milk of any kind.
5.0 - Great way to get extra protein
dissolves completely in hot liquids, haven't tried it in cold items yet.
5.0 - Great quality overall!
Doesn't really mix with cold liquids like they say. Just turns into a mass that never dissolves. If you use it in a blender, you'll be fine. Mixes well with hot stuff like coffee! I make mine with this, MCT oil , honey and coconut creamer. Yum!
5.0 - Although hair and nails have a better feel and look
Five stars On the product itself, it's ease of dissolving in cold or hot liquid, it's "no taste " or barely when drinking it with water only, so coffee or tea it is. Shipping packaging was well done and rapidly delivered at order. Although hair and nails have a better feel and look, I will wait a little on benefits since I have been taking the product for only a week. Maybe a good supplement to take since I do not eat eggs or meat often.
5.0 - It's great. It doesn't impart any weird flavors
I use this in my morning smoothies and in pasta sauces to get extra protein in my diet. It's great. It doesn't impart any weird flavors, doesn't screw up textures, and mixes into anything hot or cold. It was especially helpful to get all my needed protein during my pregnancies. I trust this for protein boost over any "protein shake" mixes that have additives and other junk hidden in them.
5.0 - If you want better hair, skin, nails, less pain and more restful sleep this is for you.
I have been taking this product for 3 months now. The first thing that I noticed was my hair and nails growing healthier and stronger. I was in an accident 3 years ago and have pain all over from it. My aches and pains have definitely been dulled since taking this. I didn't notice anything the first month, the changes began after the 5th week. I put 1 Tbs in my coffee in the morning and 1 Tbs in my lemon water at night. It does dissolve in cold liquids you just have to give it a minute or so. The huge benefit that I have noticed is that I sleep like a rock now. Prior to this I was up all night in pain and just awake off and on. I sleep thru the night everynight. I also have connective tissue disease and this has improved my strength. I would not hesitate to recommend this product as I have recommended it to my family and friends who are also taking it daily.
4.0 - and it is a great source of protein in my coffee on a busy ...
I've used this stuff for years. It has helped with pain from early onset arthritis, and I'm convinced it contributed to faster healing from sprains and even a broken toe. My skin is softer when I use it, my nails and hair are stronger and grow more healthy looking, and it is a great source of protein in my coffee on a busy morning. It dissolves quickly in hot and cold foods and liquid, and has relatively no flavor. I only wish it didn't have a slight smell to it when dissolved in hot liquid. Still, it's better than other brands I've tried. I'll keep using!

No taste at all and doesn't change the consistency of drink either hot or cold! Haven't taken long enough to evaluate it but the fact that I can enjoy my drinks and get the benefit for my body makes it easy to continue. I do think even though only a couple of weeks I do notice some change in my (very damaged) nails! I will review in a couple of weeks again. I will be ordering another bottle so I don't run out. I am taking it twice day as suggested.
4.0 - So far I like it.
Hoping after my second purchase I will be able to make an accurate review on the effect of this product. I use it in cold drinks or coffee with no trace of after taste. So far I like it.....
5.0 - Dissolves instantly in room temp/cold water. Minimal taste, ...
Dissolves instantly in room temp/cold water. Minimal taste, and hard to describe but maybe a really unflavored whey protein isolate, but not really. Have only used for about 3 days total. It does curb appetite, however I do drink the serving with 40 ounces water, but that's by choice I just drink lots of water. Hopeful in 6-8 weeks that I'll really see the benefits in my bones and skin. Plan to buy again and again!
4.0 - is great for collagen on the go so to speak
Dissolves well in hot or cold drinks, is great for collagen on the go so to speak. I prefer to make my own broth but can not travel with it. This works well! No flavor so does not interfere with the taste of what ever I put it in.
5.0 - This stuff is the best! I wasn't sure about it
This stuff is the best! I wasn't sure about it, and ordered just the Gelatin from the same company - and used it in hot water - but THIS works in cold water ! Really yummy - just mix a couple of tablespoons with cranberry juice - already helping me with my joints! Highly recommend!
5.0 - Great Product!
This product does not dissolve as easily in cold liquids as some claim but it will eventually if you work at it. Does easily and quickly dissolve in hot luquids. No discernable odor or taste to me. Convinced that on days I use it that my osteoarthritis is better. That is totally subjective I know but as long as I think it helps I will use it and this will be my preferred brand and source.
5.0 - Easy to use
Mixes well in cold water
4.0 - Mixes Well; Hope It Helps Healing
I began taking this daily a week ago on the run-up to arthroscopic knee surgery tomorrow. I am well beyond 50 years old and hoping it may help with healing in the long term. I can't judge effectiveness at this point but will say the powder does indeed mix well in both hot and cold liquids and has no discernible flavor to me. I normally take it with my glass of V-8 which has a strong flavor of its own. I will be back in a couple months to update with a more informed viewpoint.
4.0 - Excited to try this.
This just arrived today. I will come back when the can is empty and provide feedback on how it worked for me. I tried my first scoop in a small container of soy milk and shook it well as the soy was cold. No flavor. Should be easy to use and mix with just about anything.

dissolves instantly in hot or cold. Slight taste in water, but no offensive. No smell. After 2 months hair is much improved, but not nails. One can doesn't last a month, but will buy again.
5.0 - No taste or smell
I received mine in a timely fashion. I've tried it in both hot and cold liquid. I personally feel it disolves faster in hot liquids, but it does disolve in cold liquid with the help of a blender ball. I do not notice a taste at all. I was a little skeptical because some of the reviews on here said theirs had a terrible smell and taste....mine has no smell and no taste. I'm hoping to see the benefits, but I have only used for two days so far.
5.0 - Recommend
Great low-calorie protein supplement. It really does disolve in cold liquids! The texture is similar to Benefiber.
4.0 - Good way to get pastured collagen painlessly
Not sure yet whether it will help my knees. My brother suggested I try this because he finds it helps him. It may be a little better. It is easy to take. Dissolves well in room temperature water or hot water. Sometimes I put it in tea. Very mild taste in cold water, not noticable in hot tea. I have purchased two more containers and will give it a chance to work. I especially appreciate that it is made from pastured cows and that it is kosher.

4.0 - Good product for joints and skin
It's a great product and dissolves better than the other Great Lakes gelatin, but it doesn't dissolve in cold liquid like is advertises. I have to put it in a bit of warm water first and then put in whatever juice I'm using to mask the taste. When put into cold juice it just gets clumpy and takes forever to fully dissolve. I would still recommend this for joint and skin health though!
5.0 - Yup. Good stuff. gonna buy more.
I know this sounds like a no brainier, but it's fantastic in a warm soup, also instant hot cider when I had a cold. I can't say it's doing anything for my nails or hair but it's sure not seeming to harm me. I have a torn rotator cuff and it is slowly feeling less painful. Not sure if this is helping it, but it's a protein source and the green label does dissolve very nicely. I can put two heaping spoonfulls in my 16 oz travel mug with coffee and half and half, and it is only VERY slightly noticae as a texture, but not at all unpleasant, just a bit of extra mouth feel. Not even remotely gritty, and in water, adds just a slight teeny bit of transparent appearance, a teeny bit less Crystal clear than plain water. It doesn't have a noticable smell or flavor, but in plain. Water, it's just different than plain water and I prefer it in something with flavor. It's still tolerabel in water, but, eh. In other stuff is better, especially hot drinks with strong flavor profiles.
5.0 - Tasetless and dissolves well
Second order of this tasteless collagen supplement. My bones are not creaking anymore. I put it in a cup of tea once or twice a day but it does well in cold drinks too. It seems just like
5.0 - helps growth of hair and nails with nasty aftertastes
Hands down the best collagen I've used! It is tasteless and actually dissolves in both cold and hot beverages. The container is sturdy enough to withstand shipment overseas, too. It comes with a scoop which is convenient. I have noticed an increase in hair and nail growth after using only a month. I would recommend this product.

It does seem to have a slight taste if I just dissolve it in orange juice (or something similar). However, in smoothies (or something with a stronger taste or thicker consistency) I can't taste it at all. It does dissolve completely in cold or hot liquids (it does take a while sometimes, as is to be expected). On the whole, I'm very pleased. I take this every day and have noticed a slight decrease in my migraines. It's not a miracle cure, but it helps.
5.0 - Great. Hair growing back
With middle age and thyroid issues my hair and eyebrows have been thinning. I like this product and I noticed that my thinning hair is growing back and so are my thinning eyebrows. I doubled my dose of biotin at the same time as I began taking this so I wasn't sure which product was causing the results. So I stopped taking the gelatin for a few weeks and noticed my hair falling out at a greater than normal amount and my eye brows thinning again. So I know it's the gelatin making the difference. It is tasteless and does melt easily in water but at room temperature and cold water there is a little clumpiness at the bottom of the glass. At slightly warmer than room temp it melts completely. It will look cloudy unless it sits for a few minutes but cloudiness does not bother me. I like it cold with a few drops of Sweetleaf Sweet Drops Liquid Stevia, Berry, 2 Ounce purchased here at Amazon. Also put it in my kale powder juice mix. I take 2 table spoons twice a day for several weeks and then dropped back to one serving a day. I'm almost finished with my 2nd container and have found no inconsistancies in the product. Highly recommend.
5.0 - I love it!
Doesn't glob up when put in hot or cold drinks. I love it!
5.0 - No bad taste. Dissolves easily in hot or cold liquids
Drink it in my coffee every day. No bad taste. Dissolves easily in hot or cold liquids.
5.0 - Excellent healthy product and price!
Excellent product and price. I put this in my cold cereal every morning and doesn't affect the taste at all. I believe it has helped heal my digestive issues. I buy this product regularly and recommend it.
5.0 - Great product
Great product mixes in very well even cold milk
4.0 - Great product
I decided to try this based on all the great reviews. I’ve been talking it pretty much every morning in my coffee. It’s pretty much tasteless which I love and dissolves great. I didn’t think it dissolved too great in cold drinks so I’ll stick to just the hot drinks. I’m not an early breakfast person either so I love that 1 serving has at least 11g of protein as I tend to skip breakfast a lot. So since I’ve been taking this I’ve noticed my nails grow faster & stronger & my skin has been really clear. No break outs & have been getting compliments on my skin. I also have a slight case of psoriasis which I use a topical oitment for when it starts feeling irritated but since I started this I haven’t had to use it. My container is almost empty so I’m going to go off it and see if I notice a difference in my skin & psoriasis & if so I will def order this product again if I need to.
5.0 - RECOMMENDED BY NATUROPATH
This amino/protein powder sourced from cows grazing on natural grass is top quality! My naturopath recommended it and I drink it daily, in the morning. The recommended dose is 2x per day but I can't seem to remember to do it at the end of the day so I just make it a part of my am routine. I find that if you warm your water up, it dissolves more easily than in a cold product. I will say that I have noticed a definite improvement in the strength of my nails and thickness of my hair! This product is filled with a complete amino acid profile! This is a great seller and if you want to wait for the free shipping, I will say that it takes a little bit to arrive.
4.0 - Great Quality and Dissolves in Any Liquid!
Excellent quality. This powder dissolves well and in cold liquids too! The normal gelatin has to be dissolved in warm or hot liquids to work. I bought this to help with my arthritis pains in my joints and help rebuild the collagen damage. It definitely has helped take some of the edge off my arthritis pains. But, I also have acid reflux. This doesn't irritate my stomach but it doesn't help to sooth it as well as the regular gelatin. The regular gelatin helps to calm down my acid stomach better. Everyone is different. But, this is great stuff because it dissolves so well in any liquid and helps with muscle and joint damage repair. Plus the added benefit of much stronger fingernails! Great stuff!
5.0 - Great strengthner for nails and hair.
I use this for my fingernails and hair to keep them strong. Melts in hot or mixes easily in cold water. Has a slight taste to it but not unpleasant.
5.0 - A Regular Purchase for Me
I have been using Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate for over a year now & love it. It dissolves quickly in hot or cold liquid and has little taste. I use to use the regular gelatin in my coffee, but it still left a slimy mess. Glad to have found this product.
5.0 - I was pleased by its tastelessness and how easily it dissolved in ...
Over the past few years I have been on a long journey of improving my health slowly and holistically. I have multiple food allergies and intolerances, as well as autoimmune difficulties, so my selection of supplements is very carefully thought out. When I first received this Collagen Hydrolysate, I was pleased by its tastelessness and how easily it dissolved in any liquid (hot or cold).After using it for several weeks, my hair and skin both seem stronger and healthier. The deal I got on this Great Lakes Collagen was what helped make my decision between this and other well known brands. I would highly recommend this Collagen Hydrolysate!
5.0 - Yes.
I use this in smoothies. It dissolves almost immediately even in cold liquid and you can't taste it in your drink. What's not to like?
4.0 - Jury is still out on this one, but hopeful
Supposed to help joints. Suggested 2 Tbsp twice daily. Dissolves easily in hot or cold liquids, no taste. Friends say they have noticed a decrease in fine wrinkles, muscle loss that comes with age, and flexibility. I haven't finished my first can yet, still giving it time. It is a very good source of essential amino acids and I would use it for geriatric patients who can't chew well or don't like the taste of meat.
5.0 - dissolves nicely into cold or hot liquids
dissolves nicely into cold or hot liquids. there is really no taste but you can tell there is something in the water. The water taste heavy or dense. I really like this protein wish I was better at telling when these things work or not.
5.0 - Excellent protein!
This is a great product! It dissolves rapidly and completely in hot or cold liquids with no grittiness, and it makes,a difference. My nails are stronger, my joints feel better, and there's no stomach issues like whey proteins can cause. I highly recommend this protein.
5.0 - The powder dissolves easily in cold or hot liquids
The powder dissolves easily in cold or hot liquids, almost tasteless. Feel good using it because it is good for my health.
5.0 - I love the fact that it is from pastured raised animals
I love the fact that it is from pastured raised animals. It dissolves instantly in hot or cold liquids with no taste. I have it in my tea in the morning and again in a smoothie for lunch.
5.0 - Love this!
Just as described. I love this stuff! It is easily assimilated. I put it mostly in hot drinks/soups. I tried putting it in cold hemp milk, but it got all clotty. So, now, I make a hemp milk steamer and put it in after, so it dissolves. So, I can't say it does dissolve in cold, but I could always put it in my Ninja to smooth it out, if I needed to.
5.0 - Five Stars
Happy with my purchase overall. A little difficult to mix well in cold beverages.
5.0 - Great for coffee!!
I've bought this 3 times now, I really like to use it in my coffee. It dissolves instantly with no residue and makes for a "filling" cup of coffee in the morning. I haven't used it in a cold drink yet.
5.0 - Great for nails
I use this in a blend of cold-brew coffee, whey protein, and an additional supplement. This adds some thickness, but no flavor. I was drinking the same shake without the addition of the collagen hydrolysate for about 8 months. Within 2 month of adding this to my every-morning blended shake/drink I've noticed stronger nails, which is encouraging to me -- as I'm one to destroy my nails. Though I'm sure there are less obvious benefits, I'd recommend using this for the nail improvement alone!
5.0 - Good buy
Wonderful product. Mixes well in hot bevearages but in cold I would recommend a shaker cup. Shake often while consuming. I drink this with non carbonated flavored water. It adds a slight thickness which gives a full feeling. I also mix with super green drinks and protein shakes. Do not mix with soda and this is why.. it causes carbonated drinks to turn completely to foam. (I had to try it to see what happened) 😉
4.0 - Excellent product
I like the product very much and I think it helped with joint pain in my hips and thumbs that I used to have and don't any more. It dissolves very quickly in either hot or cold liquid and is completely tasteless so can go in anything. I have ordered it several times and will continue to do so.
5.0 - Great product!
This collagen powder is fantastic! Can't taste it at all! Love hiding all its benefits in my coffee, hot or cold.

This is absolutely amazing stuff. I'm not a big meat eater and worry about getting the amino acids that you get mostly in meat, I thought about making beef broth but it's a lot of work so I decided to try this product. I can actually put it in my coffee, no taste, no texture, it's like there's nothing there, I put it in plain cold water, a little bit of a stir and it's gone, no taste, no grit or feeling of any kind, just like plain water. If I walk away and get involved in something and come back to it it hasn't settled or done anything, it's gone...
5.0 - I think it mixes better with hot beverages rather than cold
The main reason I bought this product was because of my stretch marks and cellulite, and of course the overall appearance in my skin. I did notice an improvement in my skin and definitely in my cellulite! I am so excited especially since the summer season is coming up!!! Personally, I think it mixes better with hot beverages rather than cold, which is my only issue since I don't drink coffee and only drink tea at times. Nonetheless, I love this product and will continue to buy it from now on. Also, I am a fitness addict. I workout many times a week, I do cardio, weight lifting, so that also plays a significant role in the reduction of cellulite. This product smooths everything out!

Mixes well with everything. (hot/cold)
5.0 - Mixes well!
I have been reading about the benefits of collagen and bone broth and wanted to try it out but haven't had the time to put into making and drinking bone broth. I read a blog suggesting this particular brand of collagen and decided it sounded like a good idea. I have to say that I am impressed. I initially tested it out in ice water to see if it truly dissolves in cold liquid. While the initial few stirs produced some goopy chunks, the powder did dissolve after about 3 minutes of letting it sit and disperse in the water. It did not change the flavor or texture at all. Next, I poured some into my coffee. It dissolved immediately and was imperceptible. I have also been adding it to my fruit juice for a protein boost. I love it and have recommended it to family members with arthritis. I do not notice that it reduced my appetite, but I do think my skin elasticity has improved.
5.0 - This product is also good for women that are needing to replace the collagen ...
This was the first time I've purchased online but I have used this product before. It is a natural protein powder derived from the marrow of grass feed cattle. I have been using it for a year with my high school football player. We started using it with him when he injured his hip running track. Im not a fan prescription medication. If there is a natural way to heal Im all for it. So when I came across this product and did my research I found out it had so many contributions to maintaining the health of the joints. It has other properties but mostly helping with joint care. A study was conducted at a college university among student athletes. The findings stated that the athletes that had taken the collagen had less joint pain and inflammation. I have had the same results with my son. He uses it daily. It is cold water soluble and can be mixed with almost anything. I have used it in his protein meal prep, oatmeal, protein shakes, and in his daily hydration drink. This product is also good for women that are needing to replace the collagen in our skin.
5.0 - So far so good
We've taken this company's gelatin for a while but it is hard for me to get down. Saw all of the good reviews on the collagen so I thought we'd try it. Firstly, I have a sensitive nose and yes it does have a smell, and a taste, but they are pretty minor. It mixes better into hot liquids than cold. The smell and taste are more noticeable if you put it into something bland. In milk I can smell and taste it. But in a mocha (chocolatey coffee) I can't detect it at all.
5.0 - Good
So far so good. It completely dissolves in my coffee and cold water. I will write more if it helps the joints over time..
5.0 - Excellent Source of Collogen !
Dissolves well in both hot and cold beverages. For skin and hair revitalization. Imparts barely noticeable flavor to black/no sugar coffee.
4.0 - easy to use, seems to help my nails
I use this powder in juice, and I think my nails are harder than before. The powder does not completely dissolve in cold liquid, but it is practically flavorless and the chunky juice tastes fine. The pill form of collagen is easier to use, if you can swallow the big pills. This powder is certainly easier to use than the gelatin I used as a teenager,

I like how it dissolves into cold water as well as hot very easily. It also makes my nails grow real fast. I take it for leaky gut health reasons. So far seems to work great.
5.0 - Awesome
This is great stuff! I blend it up in my smoothies with my Magic Bullet. It doesn't stir in with a spoon very well, but that's fine with me! No flavor, and I love that I get a good dose of collagen protein in the morning! I have used the gelatin so much, and I like that in hot drinks, but it did not work for my cold smoothies, so this is just what I needed!! I've started being more active lately, and I want to make sure I get plenty of good quality proteins in my diet, especially collagen for my joints.
5.0 - but it's much better in hot - get little globs of gelatin in ...
I know it says it dissolves in hot and cold liquid, but it's much better in hot - get little globs of gelatin in cold liquids.
4.0 - No Taste? Um... yes there is!
I don't see how people state this doesn't have a taste. I can taste it no matter what I put it in, and it smells horrid! I also have issues getting it to completely dissolve in cold liquids. With that said, this is the first product I have used of it's kind so I am not sure how it measures up to others.
4.0 - Mixes well and no taste
I haven't noticed anything yet in my skin but this was the best reviewed collagen on Amazon so I bought it. It mixes well with cold or hot water but you do have to make sure and stir right away or it will sink to the bottom and become kind of a stringy and glue like. There is no taste. This is my 2nd time purchasing this people tell me I look young for my age so maybe it's working or maybe it's genetics?
5.0 - Life changing product for me
I LOVE this stuff. I have been battling arthritis since April. Read about this on line and decided to give it a try. Didn't want to take meds. My hair was falling out and getting so fine. My nails were really brittle. After one month of this.....I am pain free, my nails look the best they have in years and my hair has drastically improved. It no longer comes out by the hand full, I was like a dog shedding.....This has stopped!!! I also started the AIP (AutoImmune Paleo) diet on 9/7/15 so I am sure that helped my body too. I feel like a different person. I was desperate to feel better and get my life back. I use this with my nutrabullet. I put one banana, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, 1/3 cup on coconut milk and 1 to 2 tablespoons of Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate. I add a few ice cubes to make it extra cold. It is awesome tasting, a great snack or meal. I know you read some reviews and think they sound like the company wrote them. This is my true review. It has really made a huge difference in my life since I started it on 9/21/15. I normally will not write a review until I can give a product time to see how it does for me. I hope this will be of help to someone questioning purchasing this and may it help as much as it has helped me.
5.0 - No luck dissolving in cold drinks...
I have only used for three days so far and have not seen results, but I want to point out that it does not dissolve that great in cold drinks. It becomes jelly-like and clumpy and that is weird for me to drink and I think I might taste something that I shouldn't. It dissolves into nothing in hot drinks so that's how I take it and there's no flavor to it all.
5.0 - I was skeptical...
I've been taking this going on two months now. It's worth every penny! When I started my nails were so dry and brittle it looked like I bit them. They got SO long over the course of a few weeks I HAD to clip them. My hair has grown longer and the texture of it has actually changed. My stylist even commented on how silky smooth it was after just 4 weeks. My joint pain has greatly improved and I've noticed my brows need kept up more often! Hair just grows quicker. I take a table spoon in the morning and a table spoon at night in a cup of tea. You can taste it in warm liquid but it doesn't dissolve that great in cold stuff. Either way, this stuff could taste terrible and I'd keep on taking it. Give it a week to get into your system. The first two pictures are of 2 weeks in and then 4 weeks and the third photo is from about 6 weeks when I finally cut my nails. Staring out they were all broken and brittle.
5.0 - Five Stars
Great product - zero taste and dissolves perfectly in hot and cold liquid.
4.0 - I love the product
I love the product. You can mix it in nearly anything that is not super cold and you do not notice it at all which is nice. This does not gel. I had concerns about what the cans were lined with and contacted the company. They sent me the "can company letter and the MSDA (materiel safely data sheet) for the cans themselves. Casein is a milk product.". Since I have issues with dairy I asked if the casein leaches into the product at all and I am still waiting on a response from them on that.
4.0 - I'm using my second container of this product. So ...
I'm using my second container of this product. So far, I haven't noticed anything different but will continue using for a few more months to give it a fair chance. I gave this product a 4/5 because there are times it does not dissolve all the way in a cold beverage as advertised. Other than that, no discernible taste.
5.0 - Notice my skin feeling smoother and less dry
Very mild taste and dissolves instantly in either hot or cold liquid (this is great since I like to drink it in ice cold water). I've been taking this twice daily for about 2.5 weeks and I definitely notice my skin feeling smoother and less dry. My hair looks great and my nails are growing strong! Loving it so far and am certainly going to continue using this.
5.0 - My skin looks so much better. I even feel better in my
Really can tell a difference with this stuff. I drink it in my coffee most days and a few days a week I drink it again in my smoothie. You cannot taste it cold or hot! My skin looks so much better. I even feel better in my tummy
5.0 - High quality collagen, and inexpensive
Powdered collagen that does not create a gel like gelatin. Great for putting in any drink (hot or cold), and excellent for supplemental protein.
5.0 - Great way to get collagen
What a great way to get collagen in daily. Green Can goes into every beverage whether cold or hot.
5.0 - Non-chalky protein
This collagen protein powder gives me a protein boost, without that nasty chalky taste most protein powders have. I add a teaspoon this to my cold-steeped spearmint tea everyday and stir it in a with a little honey; it takes a couple minutes to dissolve, but the flavor is negligible with tea. I feel better when I start my day off with protein.

I have Crohn's and am trying to get serious about my journey to better gut health which in turn should lead to better overall health. I'm learning all about Leaky Gut and trying to heal from the inside. I've started taking this supplement to help introduce collagen into my diet. I just recently took a bone broth class and she suggested adding this supplement to your broth if it doesn't gel. The green can will dissolve in cold water, the red can will only dissolve in hot water but in her experience, otherwise are pretty much exactly the same. This can simply be added to water and have great benefits for your joints, gut, and many many other things. I haven't been taking long enough to note a difference yet but no adverse side effects so far. I will update again after continued use.
5.0 - Make a 'protein' shake with this, not the other stuff
Love this stuff and how well it dissolves. If you want to make some sort of jello, buy the orange can. This can dissolves in cold and hot liquids.

5.0 - A definite must for winter.
Not only does this stuff taste great, it actually works! I felt a cold coming on several times over the winter and taking this (along with Vit D, C and Zinc) warded it off. A definite must for winter.
5.0 - Love this product!
Has already helped me avoid one cold, and shortened the duration of one I wasn't able to completely avoid. I normally get colds that last for 2-3 weeks with a horrible barking cough, but taking this has made a huge difference. I had a cold this past week, took this twice a day, and it was basically gone within 5 days with no chronic cough. I've also been giving it to my daughter to support her immune health, and to help support us both through this cold/flu season.
5.0 - Must have to keep illnesses away!
We prefer the gummies. This stuff taste pretty awful. I'm sure it works the same. It's a must have during cold/flu season.
4.0 - Baby likes flavor
My one year old has only had one cold so far and even though I gave her this every day, it still took 10 days to clear up. Not sure if it helped or not:/ Although her cousin was sick for over a month after attending the same kids party, so maybe it did. But the baby did take the doses without protest, so I guess it tastes good!
5.0 - Great Natural Remedy !
A friend of mine recommended Black Elderberry when I thought I was coming down with a cold. I took a couple of tablespoons and most of my symptoms were gone overnight. After my great results I told my sister who gave some to my nieces & nephews and they too had great results. I have now been using Gaia Black Elderberry for the past two years - along with healthy eating and exercise I have been cold free :)

this is our go to stuff when my kids get a cold or any sickness, doesn't taste to bad (my 2 and 7 yr old take it) i definitely see a quicker recovery with this stuff!

It works great for kids to prevent minor cough cold etc
5.0 - EASY to use!
I LOVE the Gaia Herbs Black Elderberry Liquid! It's so easy to use, especially for younger kids who might not be able to swallow pills. While we don't take it daily, the second that anyone starts to feel icky, we start taking it immediately and very rarely does it turn into an actual cold or sickness! I would highly recommend taking the black elderberry liquid as an all natural alternative to some of those over the counter supplements that are mostly sugar and other bad for you ingredients.
5.0 - Excellent product
I have used this product for years and noramlly buy from a local vendor but they did not have any on the shelf. This is a good buy for the size bottle you get. I use it to build my immune system for the winter months and if I feel a cold or something coming on I take 3 tsp a day and it seems to help hold it off. Love the product.

5.0 - I recommend this to all my family and friends if they ...
Black elderberry from GAIA is the real thing. I recommend this to all my family and friends if they are getting sick. I take it every time I feel like I am "coming down with something" and within 24 hours I am completely better! It is great to take daily to keep from getting sick during the winter when lots of viruses and such are going around. I even opened up the capsule and poured into some food for my 4 year old when she was sick with a bad cold and she felt better that same day. I 100% stand behind this product from GAIA. It's also good for those with allergies and can help minimize symptoms if taken daily or reduce the need for allergy medicine.

I take this and zinc when I feel cold or allergies coming on, and so far I haven't had problems with either this season..
5.0 - Excellent assist to our immune system!
The Gaia Herbs Black Elderbery Syrup, I feel, is one of the best available; I know because I've purchased a lot of company's black elderberry syrups over the years. Made in Italy, its quality and good energy are apparent immediately upon opening the bottle. I take it by mixing it with herbs I use for liver detox along with spring or filtered water. I know it helps to knock out colds or other issues before they can get a hold on me.
5.0 - I keep a bottle on hand and this has been the best brand for us
This is a must for cold and flu we have used it for years. I keep a bottle on hand and this has been the best brand for us. Also works amazing for dogs with kennel cough which is how I first found it. Cured her in 2 days.
5.0 - This stuff is amazing!
This is concentrated elderberry syrup and well worth the cost. It helps boost your immune system in general. However, we take this mainly in the winter months when it's cold/flu season. We take it as a preventative and the up the dose when we feel something coming on, or are in the midst of it.

I use this product all through the winter with both my children to keep their immune system strong and resistant to flu and cold viruses. This is a very good way to fight those germs and I use it even for myself if I feel like I am coming down with something. I would and have been recommending this to friends and family!
5.0 - Great product

5.0 - My LO loves it
My little one loves the taste. Not sure how it works. I found out her congestion is allergies. So maybe it works on a cold but not for allergies.

Best stuff out there for preventing colds! Be sure to buy!
4.0 - In the past, I have always found this effective ...
In the past, I have always found this effective during cold and flu season. It stopped the chronic sinusitis I used to have. Now I am very disturbed that the larger bottle of the syrup has disappeared and the general supply of the syrup has dwindled. Now there is tremendous price gouging going on for the syrup that is left. As a result those of us that have come to rely on this syrup to boost our immunity are left in the lurch. What is going on?
5.0 - Don't think twice, get it!
For those of you comparing prices of elderberry syrup, you get what you pay for. This product is super condensed so you only need a small dose. The nature's way syrup is watered down, so my family went through a whole bottle in a week! Gaia herb products are very high quality and this stuff is potent! It significantly shortens the length of our colds and I believe it protects the viruses from spreading. Fall and winter we take it often but when a cold strikes we take this syrup a few times a day. We also drink warm tea with raw honey and raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar. This stuff works great and I highly recommend it!
5.0 - My favorite Elderberry brand---really works!
I love this syrup! I take it when I'm starting to feel sick and during my cold and I think it helps to shorten the length of my cold as well as reduces the severity of my symptoms. It does not make me feel drowsy, and I take it at any time of day. It tastes like sour blackberries and raspberries.
5.0 - Seems to work as a preventative
While taking this, I did seem to have less problems with my allergies and with colds. Everyone was passing a nasty bug around at work and I for once didn't get it! It tastes great and the only complaint I have would be that it seems expensive.

4.0 - Love those old time remedies
For colds I use Cold-Eze to ward them off or keep them short and mild. If I get something else, Elderberry Syrup is the go-to preventative. I like the flavor and the results. I won’t use the drug companies’ remedies unless all else fails. In the long run they actually run your body down and leave you vulnerable to worse things.

I just purchased these Gaia Herbs Black Eldenbury Liquid Phyto Capsules by Gaia Herbs. My kids are always trying to get me to take these when I am under the weather. Well last week I felt some type of cold or virus coming on. I purchased these and started taking one in the morning and one in the night. This seriously knocked it right out and I only was mildly sick for a couple of days. Clinical studies proved that this can help shorten viruses in the bloodstream.
5.0 - Gaia Herbs Black Elderberry Nighttime Syrup, 5.4 Ounce
I love this nighttime syrup when I have a cold or flu symptoms. Enables me to sleep all night with little to no coughing. A real life and sleep saver for sure! Keep it on hand for when you need it.
5.0 - Works for us, but beware of expiration
This helps us get better a LOT quicker than before we used it. Moreso for me than my husband. I will be better in 4-5 days from a cold, just about completely over it. He will take longer but has sinus issues. I ordered one in Jan. and went to use it in Oct and it was expired. Grrrr. Wasted $20.
5.0 - Sometimes you need that extra help in sleeping when you are beating back a cold
I love the regular Gaia Elderberry Syrup, but there are occasions when this version, with its gentle natural sleep aids added, is the perfect choice. Thanks Gaia!

This product stops viruses from multiplying. It’s extremely helpful for cold sores. You may need to take it right away and sometimes take 2 pills at a time multiple times a day - but it works! Also works for other cold and flu viruses and is much stronger than elderberry syrup.
5.0 - Great product
I swear by this stuff during cold and flu season. It also helps me to sleep. And it tastes really good, almost like a dessert topping! It does come out very thick after it is refrigerated. I have experienced zero negative side effects, although if you took it during the day time, it might make you drowsy. I will continue to buy it as long as Gaia keeps making it.

5.0 - Excellent for coughs...and as a sleep aid!
My smarter half grabbed one of these for me when I had my annual cold a month ago, during that annoying two-day cough phase. Not only did this stuff soothe my throat almost immediately and keep the coughing at bay for hours, but it made me blissfully sleepy, in that perfect space where you can crash right away or stay awake and enjoy the mellow calm for a while.
5.0 - Immune boost tastes delicious!
I tried this product for about two weeks and also encouraged a health-conscious loved one to try it. The supply lasted about two weeks for two of us, although I didn't take it every day and neither did the other tester. Both of us wanted to boost our energy, adrenals and immune systems with spring cold season and the worst allergy season on record.

I've been using it for 2 months and haven't gotten sick! Husband and 3 year old have both had bad colds at different times that I haven't caught. I'm 32 weeks pregnant now and already had a cold in early Fall so I was ready to try anything to avoid getting sick. My 3 year old is willing to take the syrup when he's not sick if he sees me doing it. It tastes similar to blackberry syrup. I know a lot of other factors contribute to how likely a person is to get sick but it's nice to there's one more thing I can do to boost my immune system.

5.0 - Great stuff!
After hearing so many good things about elderberry syrup I decided to try this product. We didn’t have the flu but I ordered it incase we got it this season with our 2 school aged boys. I opened it and used it whenever someone started getting a cold and the symptoms would go away by the next day at best or become more mild at least. And It tastes good. Kinda like blackberry jam. Not overly sugary like other brands. My kids love it. I will keep a bottle of this product on hand for our high risk times of year from now on. Wish the price would go back down tho!!
5.0 - OTC miracle syrup?
My wife seems to think this product is the key to keeping away childhood germs and viruses! She gives it to the kids at the first sign of a cough, cold, etc and seems to think it lessens or eliminates the cold, virus, etc. Placebo or effective? If she thinks it works I guess it doesn't matter, saves me a co-pay!

Works like magic! If I feel the slightest under the weather I take two tabs two times a day for two days and no cold!
5.0 - Delicious, if nothing else
I don't know how to determine if this syrup actually has immune-boosting properties or not. I bought something similar before, and it did seem to help, but it's hard to be sure. This version is thicker and more intense in flavor than the one I had before. The taste is really delicious. I mix a spoonful with sparkling water and drink it when I feel a cold coming on. It could be a placebo effect, or it could be effective. IN any case, if you want to use Black Elderberry, this is a great choice.
5.0 - This is a sweet, concentrated syrup
This is a sweet, concentrated syrup. I take a heaping teaspoon of it when I have the sniffles. I think I might need to do it daily, though, to help stave off a cold entirely. It is a great product that I will enjoy using more of. I appreciate the fact that it is natural also. I am happy with this.
5.0 - Works great to keep the sickness away!
These seem to be working as I have so far avoided the cold while my family has all been sick. I'm the only one taking this product so I'd say it's a win!
5.0 - great immune booster!
We keep this on hand through cold season. Mix a tsp in a small cup of water, you can also add in whatever other remedies you want to get into your kids, the sweet taste of the elderberry will make it go down easy.
5.0 - My family LOVES this stuff! Delicious!
We're big fans of elderberry for immune support and this is the tastiest stuff out there! My husband and I take it by the spoonful during cold season to ward off sickness. It's just a tad bit too strong and perhaps a little tangy for our 2 year-old son; to get around that, we just mix a little of the syrup with water and then it tastes like grape juice and he gulps it right down!
5.0 - No colds or flus
I bought this after reading it was good for keeping colds and flus at bay. I haven't had either. It tastes great as well.
5.0 - Great for the littles!
Daughter loves it! And when the nasty 4 week cold went through our house she had been taking it for about two weeks prior and her cold lasted 2 days only and was very minimal. Coincidence? Maybe. But we will be continuing this in a small dose through winter

5.0 - My bff this time of year!
This is wonderful. My friend had bought me some and I now get it here on Amazon. The taste isn't too bad too. It doesn't bother my heartburn/reflux at all, but it does hit you a little sweet and a little sour. Maybe eat something before and/or after. Most importantly though, I feel it really is great to boost your immune system and knock out illnesses. From my experience - I started feeling like I got hit by a bus out of nowhere, I immediately started taking some (I actually doubled up the recommended dose and took it like a cough syrup - not recommended for all.) for the first two days and honestly, it knocked it right out of my system! I work in an Urgent Care so I'm surrounded by colds etc. This helps, especially during this season to combat it. I take it regularly (normal dosage) to prevent any bugs and beef up my immune system too throughout the year. I highly recommend trying it and wanted to make sure I do write a review. :) As a frequent Amazon user and consumer/shopper in general, I always appreciate reading some reviews before buying a product! So, here you go! Wonderful product and you can even track where your herbs come from. Haven't tried it, but I think that's pretty cool. Take care!

5.0 - Great for an immune boost!
My kids started preschool this year after being kept while I worked by my mother in law. They were not regularly around other children. Of course, we made it two days before my youngest had cold symptoms. I went to a local health food store and got this and the nighttime version. My daughter was back to herself in a day! My son started having the same symptoms and he took some as well, and is as good as new! I have been taking some and so has my husband and we have no symptoms! This stuff is a miracle worker! And it tastes great!

5.0 - Helps with airborne allergies
I use this product daily when people around me are experiencing cold/flu season. It also seems to help with my seasonal airborne allergies - I think it provides extra vitamin c in a food form but I am not certified in these areas. I just know it helps.
5.0 - Ward off colds, flu naturally
Black elderberry syrup is one of my go-to items when I feel like I’m coming down with a cold – scratchy throat – sniffle, etc. The quantity provided here is more than enough to get you through cold/flu season or to keep on hand when you need it.
5.0 - Love this product.
Good for colds and flu but I also used it when my daughter had molluscum contagiousum. I believe it helped clear up the virus faster than it would have if I didn't have it.
4.0 - Works wonders but horrible taste
I love the gaia elderberry syrup and my kids and I have used for several years. It works wonders and really helps boost our immune system during cold/flu season. I bought this Nighttime version by accident the last time I was at the store and just hate it. While it still works well, I can't stand the herbal taste of the "Nighttime" herbs. It is like herbal tea on steroids. My kids won't take it, so I'm stuck using the entire bottle by myself and had to go back to buy them the regular Gaia Elderberry syrup.
4.0 - Amazing taste
I'm disappointed this item didn't appear on Vine until after the cold/flu season because I would've loved to compare it to standard OTC medicines. So I cannot speak as to whether it's comparable or even works in that regard. After reading about its benefits online, I do plan to put it to the test this coming winter. It is more expensive than standard cold/flu medicines, but it being organic and all-natural helps offset its price. My son is prone to respiratory ailments so to me it's worth a try.
5.0 - Can't live without
I love this product. As a first grade teacher, I'm surrounded by lots of germs. I take a tsb every night to keep myself from catching all the illnesses. Since I have been taking this, I have been able to avoid stomach bugs, flu, and colds.

This is the best remedy for the starting of a cold... the minute I feel run down I start taking this and Boom.... cold is very mild or I do not catch it at all...
5.0 - I'm sold.
I ordered this just a few days before my daughter (19 months) ended up with Influenza A despite having a flu shot. I gave her this along with the Tamiflu that was prescribed to her. Her symptoms drastically improved in just a couple of days. I don't know how much of her improvement was because of this and how much was due to the Tamiflu, but it sold me on keeping this as a household staple during cold and flu season!

5.0 - Very Helpful for Nighttime Cough and Immune Boost
My children were hit with a serious cold/flu thanks to flu vaccinated grandparents "shedding". I know this was the source because I homeschool and my children don't go to daycare. My parents went to the doctor to get antibiotics but my children were given Black Elderberry Syrup, Black Elderberry NightTime Syrup, vitamins, tea (lemon, honey and a little salt) and a small spoonful of diced garlic and honey. My children recovered within two weeks (that's how nasty the bug was) my parents were sick for nearly a month with the cough lingering even longer.
5.0 - Used to be my favorite go to for flu and colds
I will say this used to be my favorite brand. They recently have made a change to it and I swear I think it's in my head but it just doesn't seem to work like the old kind did. The old one had 11 50 mg per one or two capsules and looked like it had Berry pulp inside this is some sort of freeze-dried? Stuff in the capsule and I went through a whole bottle and didn't get better. Usually I can take them for a couple days and it knocks out my flu for years I have sworn by this stuff and told everyone that will listen to get it and try it. I sure hope it's not the change in the method or the delivery of how it's stored in the capsule now but I can't figure out what else it could be? It's supposed to be extremely potent even though it looks to be less milk mg because it's a concentrated version It's supposed to actually be more milligrams than the previous? Got to say I'm discouraged. Not sure if it's all in my head but usually when I take it for a week it knocks out whatever I have and this time it did not. May have to look for a new product after this that's my go-to for sinus cold and flu super bummed.
5.0 - Our immune system Buddy!
I have been using this supplement for almost 2 yes now and I am a true believer in black elderberry syrup. I first came across the benefits of this supplements when I was looking for a viral blocker and thru research I found out how black elderberry was used in the 90's to fight the flu epidemic in Panama so I started taking it and giving it to my children during flu season and I haven't stopped since then. I then started following a Holistic Pediatrician blog and he too recommends it for children who are fighting colds and flu or just to keep their immune system going strong. I personally use it as a daily immune system booster but I'm not a Dr, this is just what I do and it has worked. Do your research on black elderberry and when you are ready to buy it look no more, Gaia Herbs is one of the best supplemets manufacturers out there and it's also Organic where very few other ones are.
5.0 - Try it!
A friend suggested Black Elderberry Syrup when I felt like a had a cold coming on. I still felt a little congested for a day or 2 but other than that, stayed healthy. I've continued to take a teaspoon a day as the people in my office & my kids have all been sick & (knock on wood) still stayed healthy. I've given it to my kids & it seems like, although they have been sick, never really had the full-on cold.
5.0 - Awesome stuff
I started taking this every day during the cold and flu season this year and I have yet to get sick with anything. I would always get at least a cold in the past years, haven't changed anything else but taking this syrup this year so I believe it is working!
4.0 - Seems to help with the cold sore virus
I go through periods when I get frequent cold sores. Valtrex works but gives me headaches. So the last time I felt the familiar evil tingle I decided to take some of this. By the afternoon, the tingle was gone and the cold sore never appeared. Obviously I need to do a few more trials, but I'm definitely intrigued! The taste is fine, it's a very concentrated grape/berry flavor that could be easily hidden in juice or a smoothie. I have a friend who swears by this for her kids in the winters so I'm eager to see what else it can do.
5.0 - This is the BEST Elderbery Syrup for Increasing Immunity and fighting off colds and flu
I have used store brand, name brand Sanbucol, Sambucus, and NOTHING compares to this.
5.0 - It's good stuff!!
3yo loves this stuff! I mix it in her drink cups and sometimes food, as well, to avoid waste. It's a little syrupy. She does enjoy it by itself, though. It makes the typical preschool colds much easier on her because of the immune boost and much more short lived.
5.0 - Works Great!
My toddler had a nasty cold and nothing was relieving her symptoms. Gaia Black Elderberry was recommended by a Whole Foods nutritionist to help her get some relief. It was amazing how fast it worked! Not only did it relieve her symptoms, it shortened the amount of time she was sick considerably. I now keep Gaia Elderberry Syrup stocked and on hand for whenever anyone in the house gets the sniffles. It tastes wonderful, like jam, so no one minds taking it.
5.0 - I rarely get cold/flu anymore, maybe once a year if that.
I absolutely love this! I take it once a week or whenever I remember to take it. It keeps the colds/flu away! I always recommend it to my friends/family. Everyone is coughing their lungs out, sickly and I'm just here with a smile on my face, healthy as can be.
5.0 - As close to a miracle cure for the common cold as I have ever found.
This seems to really boost the immune system if you use it in time.
5.0 - Works as intended
This helped my son continue functioning and get over a very bad cold quickly. He is also a child who has a hard time physically and mentally relaxing, and therefore an extremely hard time going to sleep. He can be dog-tired, yawning and want to go to sleep, and it can still take 2 hours for him to finally fall asleep.
5.0 - Immune system
I am a healthcare worker and have dealt with the flu for 30 + years now. This product is amazing. My 14 month old nephew tested positive for the flu this season. Fever over 100 and upper respiratory symptoms. His mother chose not to give him Tamiflu after reading the side effects. She used your product. He was fever free and back to playing and eating within 3 days. It is a thick syrup that almost reminds me of jam! Yum. When I feel like i may be catching cold or worse I take a dose just for prevention and must say i have yet to be sick.

Great taste. It is a little syrupy and hard to drink out of a medicine measuring cup, so I put it into a tea cup and add cold water to it.

Feels like someone just made it yesterday.

It works very well in helping to fight a cold that's coming on. However, since I started taking two drops of pure, organic clove oil everyday, I have not been sick at all, even once, in spite of very frequently being around sick, young children in my work, as well as frequently sick family members. Therefore, my last bottle has been sitting in the refrigerator, unused, for a year. I liked the product very much back before I discovered clove oil, but I prefer to prevent viral infections rather than fight them off.
4.0 - I use this when I feel like I'm about to get a cold
I use this when I feel like I'm about to get a cold, as soon as I take this the next day that cold feeling is gone.
5.0 - Helps with keeping my kids healthy during cold/flu season!!
love this!! My daughter started taking this almost daily in February 2018 at about 18 months old, about 22lbs. we discussed using it with our pediatrician before hand and received their blessing. I would talk with your child's doctor before administering. My daughter goes to day care full time and was just always getting upper respiratory colds. we started giving this to her almost daily and it worked so well!! i was so shocked!! Shes been sick with colds/random virsus maybe twice since february. Worked great during cold/flu season! if she got a cold, it was for a day or two and then she was fine! She has had other viruses (HFM and roseolla, but i dont think really anything can protect kids from those). now that its summer we haven't been giving it to her, but plan to once fall/winter comes. it is VERY sweet and my daughter wouldn't take it directly, so we ended up putting it in her milk. didnt really impact the taste of the milk though, so thats worked for us. If you kiddos are constantly sick with colds/viruses, try this!! (after talking to your doctor ;) ), it worked really really well! I wish i knew about it sooner!!
5.0 - love it
Love this stuff. Give it my kids every day in the winter. I feel like it's helped them fight off colds that otherwise they would have gotten.
5.0 - HIGHLY recommend!!
This is the only syrup my 18 month old will take. It really does work to help his immune system! (Knock on wood) hasn't been sick once this cold/flu season. HIGHLY recommend!!
5.0 - Five Stars
Great product for children during times of colds. congestion, and flue. very natural.
5.0 - Miracle syrup...avoid getting your snotty kids' illnesses!
This stuff works wonders! I've not gotten fully sick since I started using this and it either prevents colds altogether or shortens the duration. I've been telling everyone this is a miracle syrup. I'm a nanny working with sick snotty kids all the time, so take it from me!
5.0 - Must have for germ season
Great natural product to boost your immune system. I have kept many a cold and scratchy throat at bay by immediately using this product when I notice symptoms and it works every time. My kids LOVE the taste and would take it every day if I would let the them. My last shipment was damaged in route and I had no trouble contacting the company and getting my replacement order.
5.0 - Love this liquid Elderberry
This is a lifesaver when a cold is coming on! Liquid elderberry is my secret weapon!! Also, this tastes great. Not too sweet, like some of the other liquid elderberry syrups I have tried.
5.0 - It works awesome for my little one
I swear my 2 year old gets sick much less since I put her on this a year ago. She was coming down with a nasty cold once a week. I put her on this and she's maybe been sick 3x in the past year, and all 3x it's when I've been lax at giving her this (or when I'm traveling and my husband forgets). I'm going to keep buying it!
5.0 - Awesome Stuff especially while breastfeeding!
Arrived on time. Excellent stuff! Perfect to use while breastfeeding my daughter for a stuffy head cold.
5.0 - Needed In Every Medicine Cabinet!
We use this all the time. It is great at keeping colds/illnesses at bay. It's on our monthly subscription so we never run out!
5.0 - A Very Good Product!
Gaia Herbs Black Elderberry Syrup is a great product to keep on hand. It does boost your immune system to help shorten and lessen the effects of a cold. We love that it is organic and can be given to young children with no side effects--and it tastes good, too!

This definitely shortens the duration of colds and other minor illnesses.

This is the only effective brand of elderberry, others don't work. This product reduces the duration and severity of colds and flus.
4.0 - Seems to work, bad taste!
In my quest to find something to prevent my annual bout with the flu, I decided to try this syrup. First off, it tastes pretty bad. It's sour but not in a good way, with a kind of vomit aftertaste. But, what's a bad taste compared to the flu? Feeling myself getting a cold, I started taking this and I got better rather quickly, and symptoms were not as severe as usual. Whether it's truly the syrup or a placebo effect, I don't know, but honestly I don't really think it matters as long as I'm seeing results. I will continue taking it, in the hope I can escape my annual visitor this year.

Taste good. I bought it because my son regularly gets cold.
4.0 - My kids don't like the taste
My kids don't like the taste. But well, if it's a good product, I'll still manage to make them take it. I've only have it for a week, so far it has helped my daughter who just caught a cold, to be much better the next day. We'll see how it goes.

I take this each night before bed, and it does seem to help my immune system fight off colds.
5.0 - Kids like the taste and it works too!
My kids love the taste of this stuff. We tried another brand and they won't take it, but this stuff they will. I've definitely seen improvement in their ability to keep colds at bay and at the first sign of a cold, if I give it to them, it definitely keeps it from getting worse. The only suggestion I could make about this product is that they make it available in a larger quantity as my two kids go through this stuff pretty quickly during cold season.
5.0 - Amazing!!
I love this product, my family and I take it at the first sign of an illness. It'll take your typical cold from 5-7 days down to 2 days. It is a miracle syrup!
5.0 - A Must-Have During the Flu Season
I've been taking this daily this winter and I must say I haven't gotten any colds thus far. When working an an open environment with many people ill with colds and flu, I have to say this product has contributed to strengthening my immune system. Thank goodness kids can take this as well. My daughter takes it daily as well. And must I say, no colds this year for her as well! I highly recommend taking this product. This is now a must-have every year in my home!
5.0 - helps kids immune system!!
I swear this helps my kids (4 & 2) immune system!! They get the occasional colds, but this every other morning in their oj/water they drink it up. Nice flavor & I think shortens their colds.
5.0 - Five Stars
Works great to stop cold dead in its track
5.0 - Great Immune Support
This product is a must-have during flu season. I use both the Gaia Elderberry syrup (sometimes) and the Gaia capsules when I'm traveling. I swear by Elderberry. I've been so exposed to colds and flu that I was just SURE I'd likely get sick. But this stuff is the best. If you even FEEL a slight tickle, starting taking elderberry syrup and it seems to work great on the chest. Stick with it 3-4 times per day and it seems to eliminate or reduce symptoms until your own immunes can take over and kick it. I like the syrup for actual symptoms and the capsules for an every other day alternative.
4.0 - Good value, simple ingredient list, and actually works but the full dose causes stomach upset
I'm normally a skeptic about products like this, but this has really helped me this past cold/flu season. It is higher quality than other elderberry products I have tried and also seems to work better than others. I love the simple ingredient list, which is pretty hard to find in an elderberry product. It is only concentrated elderberry, concentrated acerola fruit, sugar cane juice, water, and lemon juice. Many other elderberry products have echinacea, more sugar, or other added ingredients. I keep it in the fridge, have a teaspoon a day as soon as I feel that throat tickle or the kids get a cold, and I either don't get sick at all or have fewer and less severe symptoms.
5.0 - Amazing!!
Love, Love, Love this product!!! The taste is outstanding compared to other brands and the form of Vitamin C Acerola is great too. My kids take it without any problems and actually ask for more!! We take it at the first sign of cold symptoms and it actually works!
5.0 - Great tasting and effective
Taste is amazing and I think it really helped shorten my cold.
5.0 - good quality and it works
A great not too sweet syrup to have on hand during the cold and flu season.
5.0 - Delicious...and works.
I've taken this once a day all through the fall and winter for the past 3 years. I have not had a cold or flu in all this time, and I do not get the flu vaccine. I work in a hospital and I am therefore exposed to many people...this product keep my immune system strong. It tastes delicious and this is the best price I have found. If taken once a day a 5.4 oz. bottle will last 1 month. Highly recommended.
5.0 - ALL NATURAL, MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER FAST
Delicious taste! Excellent as everyone says - I came down with a terrible cold (the coughing was non stop, so bad that my sides hurt !!) but in just a couple of days I was at least able to function. I plan on taking this as a daily tonic (one teaspoon) daily, but if I

The taste isn't the best, but will say that this one works fast as soon as I feel sick. It completely takes away any sore throat or cold.
5.0 - I purchased this product and am so pleased that I've ordered another bottle
After much research, I purchased this product and am so pleased that I've ordered another bottle. I have had bronchial asthma for a good part of my 71 years and simple colds for anyone else can put me in the hospital. This syrup is great and appears to be preventing things from becoming worse.
5.0 - Awesome
Great size, reasonably priced & very concentrated so not as much needed. Whenever any of us get sick I start the sick person on 1 tsp every 2 hours. Usually knocks out cold/cough/fever/flu within 12 hours. I mix w/ juice or gatorade but can be taken alone as well.
5.0 - WONDER HERB!
Best product on the market for colds and flu. Don't let the taste fool you! I take it in conjunction with fresh brewed ginger and hibiscus tea. Best remedy for the Fall and Winter months.
5.0 - Keep on buying it!
I am thinking this stuff works. My kids colds are much shorter and they get exposed to stuff without getting sick (compared to last year- or maybe it's the same colds they aren't getting with stronger immune systems? I don't know!!). I give them 1/4 tsp twice per day along with other vitamins and supplements. They are 2

5.0 - They love it (but they are so used to it
I would never ever go through a flu season with out this liquid gold!!! Seriously. My kids take a 1/2 tsp every night for immune boosting. If they are starting a cold they get it 2x a day.
5.0 - ... I felt a cold coming on & it worked like a charm
Used this several times when I felt a cold coming on & it worked like a charm....So glad to have something other than the over the counter poisons.
5.0 - Better than nyquil or dayquil
Truly rapid relief. Felt soreness in my throat and just after 1 dosage, my throat felt relief and the the cold did not progress. Bought this for the whole family. Better than nyquil or dayquil. Absolutely no side effects. Taste super yummy, like crushed sweet blueberries.
5.0 - BEST black elderberry I've found!
This stuff is the real deal. Better than sambucus. I am currently putting in my smoothie daily for inflammation. It has also knocked out several colds and viruses over the years. Always keep a bottle on hand!!
5.0 - A miracle cure!
I am so glad I decided to give this a try. I suffered with a cold and chest congestion for a week and a half, until this arrived in the mail. First dose--and I was cough-free for the night. Slept peacefully. I ordered the smaller size because Amazon's subscribe and save program makes it more affordable, though I admit it is not cheap to begin with. But it is definitely worth the price, and I intend to keep it on hand as a part of my permanent medicine kit.

I've been taking one tsp of this daily for 2 years. No flu or colds since. I totally believe the claims of boosting the immune system!
5.0 - works like a charm
I take this 2x a day when I feel a cold coming on and it really works. It's worth the price.
5.0 - My kids and I have been taking this for about ...
My kids and I have been taking this for about two weeks now. My 3 year old son is in daycare and my 11 year old daughter is in 5th grade. My daughter came home Friday with a stuffed up nose and a cough. I immediately gave her a dose of this syrup. I had been giving it every other day. She got a dose Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The cough and stuffiness generally subsided. She went to school Monday with no problems. I'm attributing her getting over whatever she had (even if it was just a common cold) so fast to the Elderberry. This child is a former preemie who has had multiple surgeries and suffers from respiratory issues every winter!! The 2017-2018 flu season is running RAMPANT and I wanted to do everything I could to protect her!
5.0 - great product
I always look for natural remedies and methods to cure or prevent ailments. In the past I have made my own black elderberry syrup, but in my current location elderberries are not available. Or, I should say, I have had trouble buying them. This is a great alternative to making your own. My family has been healthy and avoided the colds and flu since taking elderberry syrup. Highly recommend!
4.0 - Good, Not Great
This is not what I would call a game-changer when sick, but whether its truly the homeopathic ability or a placebo effect, I have noticed it helps alleviate a cold sooner than other medicines I've taken. It certainly tastes better than other cold medicines, which is nice, but its a thick, sweet syrup. Took some getting used to. Luckily, my children were quite happy to take it for that reason alone!
5.0 - Kept my colds at bay all winter
I don't pop vitamins all day or believe I can stop a cold with herbs. But I noticed this product smack in the middle of cold and flu season here in the Northeast and ordered it. The next day (seriously) I felt crappy and was sure I was getting sick. So I tried the elderberry syrup--and I admit I took a little more than the recommended dose. The next day, I felt fine but took it again just to be safe (regular dose this time). And that threatening cold never developed. I was 100 percent fine. Coincidence? Possibly. But I've used it a few more times, always wth the same result. I'm not saying It's a cure-all. But it sure helped keep me healthy this past winter.
5.0 - Works!!
Works so good if you have a cold coming on!
5.0 - Tastes very sweet and works great!!!!
I bought a "healthier" brand without as much sugar. I have found I do not even want to use it when I need it. I am back to my old favorite Gaia brand Elderberry. I don't mind the sugar at least I take it when needed. I found when I get the first sign of a cold or tingling throat I take this and in 2 years I have not had more than a minor cold. Even when the rest of the family (that refuse that weird stuff) is suffering and can't breathe I am only sniffing a little bit.
5.0 - This is a wonderful supplement during cold season
This is a wonderful supplement during cold season. Delicious and effective. Elderberry works as a shield to keep out viruses and colds. We depend on it every winter, and as a result have suffered far fewer sinus/chest infections than during years when we did not use it.
5.0 - No cold this winter!
I haven't been sick all winter, I guess my friend was absolutely right! I will be buying again! I tried other kinds, but this one is my favorite!
5.0 - Helped cut my cold in half
A few different people told me to try Elderberry Syrup to ward off colds, and I have to say I think it works! My whole family has had a really terrible cold and have not taken this, but I've taken 2 doses of this a day and my cold - which was still pretty bad - lasted half as long as usual. The syrup is quite thick but seems effective - anything to help keep me out of the doctor's office! Most people think this tastes great... I think it sort of tastes like marinara. But again, seems worth it to cut my symptoms in half. I'll keep taking it on a regular basis to keep my immune system up.
5.0 - Amazing
I am convinced this works. Twice now I have gotten a bad cold. Within 24 hours of taking this stuff I feel so much better. My family also takes it and we've prevented the spread of germs in our household. The taste is a little bitter but way better than cough medicine.
5.0 - Amazing stuff
I'm a registered nurse, and often skeptic when it comes to homeopathic remedies. Everyone at work was coming down with flu-like symptoms and colds. I woke up with a horrible sore throat, and started taking a generous teaspoon of this stuff 2x/day. Three days later: sore throat is almost healed and NO nasal symptoms. This stuff literally stopped a nasty cold in its tracks. I made my husband take it as a preventative, as well. Truly works!!!
5.0 - Five Stars
All moms should busy during winter season. Helps minimize down time and prevents several colds.
5.0 - Best immunity booster!!
My whole family takes this, myself, my husband, and my 3 year old. Our naturopathic doc suggested we do this as an immunity booster and wow does it work. My son has had one cold this entire school year and he gets this every day!! It tastes so yummy. I am very upset that I just got notice it isn't on subscribe and save anymore, totally disappointed!! Gaia is the only brand we buy, on the box you can track where your herbs come from and their journey its pretty cool to support a company so dedicated to quality ingredients!!

Whenever I feel a cold coming on, I take this 2 or 3 times a day and, before I know it, that "cold" feeling is gone!
5.0 - Great virus prevention
I pop a few of these whenever I feel a cold coming on, go to bed, then take a few over the next few days whenever I feel the cold trying to come back. So far it has saved me from getting a full blown cold, which is great' since I normally catch everything going around and am down for days and days.
5.0 - Take it when you feel a cold coming on...
It's Gaia so I knew it'd be good. I take it when I feel a cold coming on and I believe it helps more than anything else I've tried. It's yummy, too!
5.0 - While everyone around us was dropping like flies, we remained healthy and never slowed down
I refuse to be without this stuff during cold and flu season. While everyone around us was dropping like flies, we remained healthy and never slowed down! It doesn't taste bad, either...very sweet...but there were no complaints from my sweet tooth kiddos!
5.0 - Very effective for us.
My kids haven't gotten sick since I started this. It took about a month and a half to get in their system. They both used to get these weird colds every 2 months and I can't even tell you the last time they've had one. If they seem to come down with something, it doesn't seem to attack them as hard and they're back to normal the next day or two. This is a nice product.
5.0 - Very good!
I am very satisfied with this product. I have used the syrup either straight or mixed. I have taken a teaspoonful straight and it tastes pretty good and not too sweet. I have mixed a teaspoonful with 8 to 12 oz Perrier carbonated water for a kind of healthy soda (non sugary, more like elderberry essence soda water) with a very nice deep purple color due to the concentrated syrup. I cannot speak much to its use as a cough syrup/suppressant or for cold prevention since it is not currently the cold & flu season. It may boost the immune system since I have not gotten sick since I started using this product about 2 to 3x week for a month and also I have not really been affected by allergies during spring pollen season.

I purchased this on the recommendation of a good friend after having two very bad colds in a short period of time. So far I have stayed well with many sick around me. Seems everyone has had a cold or flu every where I've gone for the last few months!!
5.0 - Kids will actually want to take this
Taste good, seems to lessen colds. I feel it even helps ward off colds too
5.0 - Great for cold and flu season!
Our whole family takes this daily in the fall/winter/spring months. It works great to combat and lessen the time/severity of colds and flu. I just wish Amazon would have this on subscribe and save!
5.0 - I reiterate all the good things you see on other reviews
I reiterate all the good things you see on other reviews. This is miracle syrup when it comes to fighting cold and flue.
5.0 - Best preventive maintenance ever
I think this is magic in a bottle. I have used it at the onset of a cold and it helps within 24 hours. Even after the cold or virus has set in, this product helps it run its course faster than using other products. I have tried different brands, but swear by Gaia Herbs, as it is more concentrated than other brands. My whole family takes it and loves it - not the taste and thickness, but the results!
4.0 - Solid brand w/ research to back it up
I have used Gaia for many years -- my first experience was with their Elderberry which came in a different form, more like a dissolving tab. The syrup form is a bit more messy but tastes more potent or concentrated, almost like a tomato paste. I went a full winter without getting sick the last time I stuck to a daily dose of the elderberry, and since trying the syrup have not suffered too badly during this allergy season. Highly recommend for boosting immunity, especially in those hours when you feel on the verge of getting cold or flu.
5.0 - Great item in your holistic medicine cabinet
My family takes this when anyone is starting to feel a bit under the weather with a cold, sore throat or the like. We've found it either stops it in its tracks or significantly shortens the infection period. I keep this on hand all year long.
5.0 - Tried others- this is the best for my daughter
We have tried Sambucol, Gaia, and Nature's Way. My daughter prefers the taste of Gaia to the others, and I notice an improvement in any cold symptoms immediately with Gaia. Even though Sambucol is the only one clinically tested, Gaia has the same concentration and it is organic. The proof is in the pudding....Gaia works.
5.0 - The real deal.
Great product! Very similar to the expensive stuff from a naturopath. Tastes great and I notice an improvement in cold and flu symptoms when taking this.
5.0 - It's a must have during cold and flu season!
This stuff works!
5.0 - Great in smoothies or just plain
This includes natural Vitamin C from Acerola cherries, contains no artificial flavors or colors, no preservatives, and no high fructose corn syrup. Immune support for the whole season. As soon I feel symptoms of a cold I take one teaspoon in the morning and one teaspoon in the evening. The next day I'm back to not feeling any symptoms. Great immune booster. The taste is a bit tart. I will put it in a smoothie or drink. I love this product and it is never not in my home. I will buy two at a time to have backup. Highly recommend this. It will keep you from making a trip to the doctors.
5.0 - ... so far I haven't had a cold yet- it's awesome!
I prefer using this to echinacea – so far I haven't had a cold yet- it's awesome!
5.0 - Delicious and effective immune booster!
This is a great item to have in your remedy cupboard, if you don't already use it on a daily basis to boost your immune response during the winter months. Elderberry has been researched in Europe and Israel, and proven to be effective in helping fight a cold or flu and shorten the duration of the illness. The syrup is very flavorful and pleasantly sweet. It contains a small amount of sugar, but not corn syrup. If you don't want to take it by the spoonful directly, it is delicious mixed with a half cup of cold water. Or, it is very soothing mixed with a half a cup of hot water. I've tried other brands, and Gaia is very fresh tasting, and works as well as the brand that has been on the market for years. It's wonderful when a simple, natural remedy actually works!
5.0 - Awesome product. This helped me with Bronchitis last winter

5.0 - ... away from natural remedy and rely on UN-natural medicine like thera-flu, vicks
Why oh why do we move away from natural remedy and rely on UN-natural medicine like thera-flu, vicks, nyquil? I keep needing to use this and feel miserable. This is the first cold season that I have had without a flu, cough or cold and I just used Elderberry. I typically end up with 5-6 colds/year because our family is always on the move. Finally a secret weapon to fight from a stale environment we have in winters (Portland, Or - never too cold or never too warm, lots of active bacteria).
5.0 - Five Stars
The best to use with a winter cold.
4.0 - natural cold remedy
i haven't really tried this product, but i recommended it to a friend who is a Bioligist and he said it truly worked! also i gave one bottle to my daughter and she said that it worked too. Her colds did not linger for three weeks as is normally the case for ordinary colds.
5.0 - prevents and minimizes illnesses!
Our pediatrician recommended this as a preventative measure for my kids during cold/flu season, and it worked great! The most my kids got last winter was a mild cold, and this was after being exposed to the flu/colds in school. I told a friend who has been taking it since last year and said she was the only one in her office that did not get the flu (and she gets sick easily due to her asthma). Worth every penny!
4.0 - Excellent product, also a good sleep aid...but you can get almost twice as much for a few bucks more if you buy the 5.4 oz size
This elderberry syrup works very well for colds, especially during during that annoying two-day cough phase. Not only does this stuff soothe my throat almost immediately and keep the coughing at bay for hours, but it makes me blissfully sleepy, in that perfect space where you can crash right away or stay awake and enjoy the mellow calm for a while.
5.0 - Keep on hand
This is great to have on hand to take at the first sign of a cold or flu.
4.0 - Pretty sure this is helping my immune system
My friend who is a naturopathic doctor told me that I should get this to help the immune system. I was telling her how sick my kids always are with colds and such, and she said if there was one thing to take the second you start feeling weak or, if you can, on a daily basis, it would be this syrup to help immune system naturally ward off basic illnesses. Well...we have been taking it for years. We don't take it daily simply because of the price, but as soon as the kids don't feel great I give them each a teaspoon of this a day for weeks. It seems to do the trick--we don't get too sick that often.
5.0 - Helpful cold and flu remedy and immune system booster
I had picked this up at Whole Foods initially when it was featured, I saw it and remembered hearing Dr. Oz on one of his shows had recommended elderberry as a remedy to help shorten colds and the flu. One evening I became congested and had other cold-like symptoms and worried I was in for a bout of being sick, so decided to try it. I woke up relieved of all symptoms, which I found amazing. I did some subsequent research and discovered it is even effective against H1N1. Good stuff!
5.0 - Best Elderberry On The Market!
If I could give this 10 stars, I would! Someone told me about elderberry being a natural remedy for the common cold. I started using this product about 5 years ago and cannot tell you how it’s changed our family’s lives during cold season. What was a normal 5-7 day span is now a 2-3 day. I use this religiously during cold season and the best is that I never have to go the “medicine” route like Mucinex or use any other non-homeopathic kids cold medicine. This works great; it’s the only way I’d go during cold season.
4.0 - Great for stubborn long problems
This stuff is really good for respiratory conditions. If you have a chronic bronchitis, or a long cold or flu that will not go away, definitely give this a try.

This was recommended to me by an anesthesiologist. It was by far the best advice I've ever received. Came down with a nasty cold recently and on day 2, I started taking this. By day 3 I was 70% better. This is an amazing product!!! My son soon complained of a sore throat. I gave him 2 doses within a 12 hour time frame(mixed it with some yogurt). He woke up symptom free and the cold never developed! Miracle product!

I take this regularly in the winter months and take more of it when someone in the house is ill or I feel ill. My kids will take this right off the spoon since it's based in honey. Great cold/flu remedy. Our home is never without it.
4.0 - Helping cut the duration of my cold
Heard about this from a coworker that swears by it to help boost the immune system during cold and flu season especially. I purchased it because I am sick very often as a result from teaching two year olds so I'm constantly exposed to germs. So I'm not going to lie but the taste is very bitter to me, some people say they like it. I myself am not a fan. I had the idea to mix it into a glass of apple juice to mask the taste which seems to help with the taste quite a bit. So I've only been on this for a month and did have a cold but I feel that the duration of the cold was a lot shorter than it usually is.

I felt a bad cold coming when meeting a friend at a healthfood store for lunch. They don't carry my usual brand of black elderberry syrup, so I tried this mostly because I felt too lousy to drive to another store. Wow. Within just a day or so I was back to my old self, and the cold never really hit past that first day. I should add that I took it 4x a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and bedtime) instead of the 2x day the label recommended. I've had decent luck in the past with 
5.0 - good seller
bought this item based on other reviews to help build immune system during cold and flu season it works and taste good also
5.0 - Amazing impact on our health!
We started taking this product to prevent flu, colds, etc., and wound up taking it every day. We have found that it has definitely boosted our immunity. Everyone we have recommended it to has also found it has absolutely made them feel better very quickly if they were just coming down with something. They were totally shocked at the quick response/improvement to their health! We swear by it!!! Wouldn't be without it in our house.
5.0 - Perfect immunity boost!
I love this! Whenever I or my kids start coming down with an illness, I immediately have us start taking Black Elderberry Syrup. The syrup is sweet, and the children love taking it. I've noticed that when we do take it, we recover faster from our colds. It gives the perfect immunity boost that we need.
5.0 - Miracle worker!
I can't believe this syrup!! It's too good to be true. My four year old has been constantly down with cold and cough and I tried honey, cough syrups but in vain. I wanted to boost her immunity so that she doesn't catch it in the first place. That's when I came across Gaia kids elderberry syrup. After reading so many positive reviews I thought I'll give it a try. My kid was suffering from continuous night cough since four days and the night I have her the syrup the cough was gone. I continued giving her half tsp twice daily for two more days and the cough and cold completely subsided. I now continue to give her half tsp once daily to boost her immunity.

Tates is pleasant and it has decreased the severity of a cold.
5.0 - Trying our best to boost his immune system
I can't quite speak to the efficacy of this yet since we started to give it to my toddler everyday as a preventative about two weeks ago. He has RAD (toddler asthma) and his trigger is a cold. Trying our best to boost his immune system. I did a lot of research on elderberry and this is the only brand I feel comfortable giving. It really is only elderberry and honey. Other brands include echinachea and while I am sure it works, I just don't want to give those mixtures to a toddler. He takes it in his morning almond milk like a champ so only time will tell if it works but from these reviews and others across the web, I am pretty confident and excited about it.
5.0 - you are better off with the Organic Gaia brand
Our lives are vastly improved by using this product. The sugars at 4 grams per tsp are less than in any other Elderberry product and using less tsp - two a day- with GAIA compared to 14 grams per tsp and taking 8 tsp a day with the other product, you are better off with the Organic Gaia brand. We have used this product for the past year... and it was the only thing to knock out a bad case of bronchitis for me. This summer we both had colds and using it cuts the length of the cold down for each of us to four days or less and the cold was less severe. If you google this product you will find it also helps with flus and other viruses. Maintenance dose is 1 tsp a day if you are in need and then if you do catch something it ups to a second tsp. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
5.0 - Helps keep my toddler healthy.
My toddler (3 year old) son used to get colds all the time after starting daycare. After taking Gaia Herbs and taking other precautions, he's been nearly cold free for about 2 months now :)

5.0 - A definite must for winter.
Not only does this stuff taste great, it actually works! I felt a cold coming on several times over the winter and taking this (along with Vit D, C and Zinc) warded it off. A definite must for winter.
4.0 - Solid brand w/ research to back it up
I have used Gaia for many years -- my first experience was with their Elderberry which came in a different form, more like a dissolving tab. The syrup form is a bit more messy but tastes more potent or concentrated, almost like a tomato paste. I went a full winter without getting sick the last time I stuck to a daily dose of the elderberry, and since trying the syrup have not suffered too badly during this allergy season. Highly recommend for boosting immunity, especially in those hours when you feel on the verge of getting cold or flu.
5.0 - Love this product!
Has already helped me avoid one cold, and shortened the duration of one I wasn't able to completely avoid. I normally get colds that last for 2-3 weeks with a horrible barking cough, but taking this has made a huge difference. I had a cold this past week, took this twice a day, and it was basically gone within 5 days with no chronic cough. I've also been giving it to my daughter to support her immune health, and to help support us both through this cold/flu season.
5.0 - Must have to keep illnesses away!
We prefer the gummies. This stuff taste pretty awful. I'm sure it works the same. It's a must have during cold/flu season.
5.0 - Great item in your holistic medicine cabinet
My family takes this when anyone is starting to feel a bit under the weather with a cold, sore throat or the like. We've found it either stops it in its tracks or significantly shortens the infection period. I keep this on hand all year long.
5.0 - I was recommended to take this daily by my doctor for protection ...
I was recommended to take this daily by my doctor for protection and improving my immune system. It and a homeopathic remedy contributed to my fighting off a cold that was just starting as well. It all worked well.
5.0 - works wonderfully
this is our go to stuff when my kids get a cold or any sickness, doesn't taste to bad (my 2 and 7 yr old take it) i definitely see a quicker recovery with this stuff!
5.0 - Five Stars
It works great for kids to prevent minor cough cold etc
5.0 - Delicious...and works.
I've taken this once a day all through the fall and winter for the past 3 years. I have not had a cold or flu in all this time, and I do not get the flu vaccine. I work in a hospital and I am therefore exposed to many people...this product keep my immune system strong. It tastes delicious and this is the best price I have found. If taken once a day a 5.4 oz. bottle will last 1 month. Highly recommended.
5.0 - EASY to use!
I LOVE the Gaia Herbs Black Elderberry Liquid! It's so easy to use, especially for younger kids who might not be able to swallow pills. While we don't take it daily, the second that anyone starts to feel icky, we start taking it immediately and very rarely does it turn into an actual cold or sickness! I would highly recommend taking the black elderberry liquid as an all natural alternative to some of those over the counter supplements that are mostly sugar and other bad for you ingredients.
5.0 - Excellent product
I have used this product for years and noramlly buy from a local vendor but they did not have any on the shelf. This is a good buy for the size bottle you get. I use it to build my immune system for the winter months and if I feel a cold or something coming on I take 3 tsp a day and it seems to help hold it off. Love the product.
5.0 - I recommend this to all my family and friends if they ...
Black elderberry from GAIA is the real thing. I recommend this to all my family and friends if they are getting sick. I take it every time I feel like I am "coming down with something" and within 24 hours I am completely better! It is great to take daily to keep from getting sick during the winter when lots of viruses and such are going around. I even opened up the capsule and poured into some food for my 4 year old when she was sick with a bad cold and she felt better that same day. I 100% stand behind this product from GAIA. It's also good for those with allergies and can help minimize symptoms if taken daily or reduce the need for allergy medicine.

5.0 - Excellent assist to our immune system!
The Gaia Herbs Black Elderbery Syrup, I feel, is one of the best available; I know because I've purchased a lot of company's black elderberry syrups over the years. Made in Italy, its quality and good energy are apparent immediately upon opening the bottle. I take it by mixing it with herbs I use for liver detox along with spring or filtered water. I know it helps to knock out colds or other issues before they can get a hold on me.

We use this when we feel we are getting sick or do get sick. We swear it seems to shorten or stop a cold in its tracks!
5.0 - Helps with keeping my kids healthy during cold/flu season!!
love this!! My daughter started taking this almost daily in February 2018 at about 18 months old, about 22lbs. we discussed using it with our pediatrician before hand and received their blessing. I would talk with your child's doctor before administering. My daughter goes to day care full time and was just always getting upper respiratory colds. we started giving this to her almost daily and it worked so well!! i was so shocked!! Shes been sick with colds/random virsus maybe twice since february. Worked great during cold/flu season! if she got a cold, it was for a day or two and then she was fine! She has had other viruses (HFM and roseolla, but i dont think really anything can protect kids from those). now that its summer we haven't been giving it to her, but plan to once fall/winter comes. it is VERY sweet and my daughter wouldn't take it directly, so we ended up putting it in her milk. didnt really impact the taste of the milk though, so thats worked for us. If you kiddos are constantly sick with colds/viruses, try this!! (after talking to your doctor ;) ), it worked really really well! I wish i knew about it sooner!!

5.0 - I keep a bottle on hand and this has been the best brand for us
This is a must for cold and flu we have used it for years. I keep a bottle on hand and this has been the best brand for us. Also works amazing for dogs with kennel cough which is how I first found it. Cured her in 2 days.
5.0 - This stuff is amazing!
This is concentrated elderberry syrup and well worth the cost. It helps boost your immune system in general. However, we take this mainly in the winter months when it's cold/flu season. We take it as a preventative and the up the dose when we feel something coming on, or are in the midst of it.

Great cold fighter. Boosts the immune system and gives me extra energy
5.0 - My LO loves it
My little one loves the taste. Not sure how it works. I found out her congestion is allergies. So maybe it works on a cold but not for allergies.
5.0 - Love it!
Best stuff out there for preventing colds! Be sure to buy!
5.0 - Don't think twice, get it!
For those of you comparing prices of elderberry syrup, you get what you pay for. This product is super condensed so you only need a small dose. The nature's way syrup is watered down, so my family went through a whole bottle in a week! Gaia herb products are very high quality and this stuff is potent! It significantly shortens the length of our colds and I believe it protects the viruses from spreading. Fall and winter we take it often but when a cold strikes we take this syrup a few times a day. We also drink warm tea with raw honey and raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar. This stuff works great and I highly recommend it!
5.0 - Seems to work as a preventative
While taking this, I did seem to have less problems with my allergies and with colds. Everyone was passing a nasty bug around at work and I for once didn't get it! It tastes great and the only complaint I have would be that it seems expensive.

So healthy and delicious. I just want to pour it on my pancakes! No more colds!
5.0 - Very good!
I am very satisfied with this product. I have used the syrup either straight or mixed. I have taken a teaspoonful straight and it tastes pretty good and not too sweet. I have mixed a teaspoonful with 8 to 12 oz Perrier carbonated water for a kind of healthy soda (non sugary, more like elderberry essence soda water) with a very nice deep purple color due to the concentrated syrup. I cannot speak much to its use as a cough syrup/suppressant or for cold prevention since it is not currently the cold & flu season. It may boost the immune system since I have not gotten sick since I started using this product about 2 to 3x week for a month and also I have not really been affected by allergies during spring pollen season.
5.0 - Tastes great and it's reduced her annual colds/illnesses by 50%
Includes dosing instructions for preventative care and for when kiddos are sick. Tastes great and it's reduced her annual colds/illnesses by 50%.

I just purchased these Gaia Herbs Black Eldenbury Liquid Phyto Capsules by Gaia Herbs. My kids are always trying to get me to take these when I am under the weather. Well last week I felt some type of cold or virus coming on. I purchased these and started taking one in the morning and one in the night. This seriously knocked it right out and I only was mildly sick for a couple of days. Clinical studies proved that this can help shorten viruses in the bloodstream.
5.0 - Gaia Herbs Black Elderberry Nighttime Syrup, 5.4 Ounce
I love this nighttime syrup when I have a cold or flu symptoms. Enables me to sleep all night with little to no coughing. A real life and sleep saver for sure! Keep it on hand for when you need it.
5.0 - Works for us, but beware of expiration
This helps us get better a LOT quicker than before we used it. Moreso for me than my husband. I will be better in 4-5 days from a cold, just about completely over it. He will take longer but has sinus issues. I ordered one in Jan. and went to use it in Oct and it was expired. Grrrr. Wasted $20.
5.0 - Sometimes you need that extra help in sleeping when you are beating back a cold
I love the regular Gaia Elderberry Syrup, but there are occasions when this version, with its gentle natural sleep aids added, is the perfect choice. Thanks Gaia!
5.0 - Delicious and effective immune booster!
This is a great item to have in your remedy cupboard, if you don't already use it on a daily basis to boost your immune response during the winter months. Elderberry has been researched in Europe and Israel, and proven to be effective in helping fight a cold or flu and shorten the duration of the illness. The syrup is very flavorful and pleasantly sweet. It contains a small amount of sugar, but not corn syrup. If you don't want to take it by the spoonful directly, it is delicious mixed with a half cup of cold water. Or, it is very soothing mixed with a half a cup of hot water. I've tried other brands, and Gaia is very fresh tasting, and works as well as the brand that has been on the market for years. It's wonderful when a simple, natural remedy actually works!
5.0 - No flu!
I've been taking all winter, and no flu, no cold, no sinus trouble. For me? that is amazing.

This product stops viruses from multiplying. It’s extremely helpful for cold sores. You may need to take it right away and sometimes take 2 pills at a time multiple times a day - but it works! Also works for other cold and flu viruses and is much stronger than elderberry syrup.

5.0 - Great Natural Remedy !
A friend of mine recommended Black Elderberry when I thought I was coming down with a cold. I took a couple of tablespoons and most of my symptoms were gone overnight. After my great results I told my sister who gave some to my nieces & nephews and they too had great results. I have now been using Gaia Black Elderberry for the past two years - along with healthy eating and exercise I have been cold free :)
4.0 - Excellent product, also a good sleep aid...but you can get almost twice as much for a few bucks more if you buy the 5.4 oz size
This elderberry syrup works very well for colds, especially during during that annoying two-day cough phase. Not only does this stuff soothe my throat almost immediately and keep the coughing at bay for hours, but it makes me blissfully sleepy, in that perfect space where you can crash right away or stay awake and enjoy the mellow calm for a while.
5.0 - Excellent for coughs...and as a sleep aid!
My smarter half grabbed one of these for me when I had my annual cold a month ago, during that annoying two-day cough phase.

5.0 - Immune boost tastes delicious!
I tried this product for about two weeks and also encouraged a health-conscious loved one to try it. The supply lasted about two weeks for two of us, although I didn't take it every day and neither did the other tester. Both of us wanted to boost our energy, adrenals and immune systems with spring cold season and the worst allergy season on record.

5.0 - Great Immune Support
This product is a must-have during flu season. I use both the Gaia Elderberry syrup (sometimes) and the Gaia capsules when I'm traveling. I swear by Elderberry. I've been so exposed to colds and flu that I was just SURE I'd likely get sick. But this stuff is the best. If you even FEEL a slight tickle, starting taking elderberry syrup and it seems to work great on the chest. Stick with it 3-4 times per day and it seems to eliminate or reduce symptoms until your own immunes can take over and kick it. I like the syrup for actual symptoms and the capsules for an every other day alternative.
4.0 - Amazing taste
I'm disappointed this item didn't appear on Vine until after the cold/flu season because I would've loved to compare it to standard OTC medicines. So I cannot speak as to whether it's comparable or even works in that regard. After reading about its benefits online, I do plan to put it to the test this coming winter. It is more expensive than standard cold/flu medicines, but it being organic and all-natural helps offset its price. My son is prone to respiratory ailments so to me it's worth a try.
5.0 - GREAT PRODUCT!
Have not tried it yet but know it works to get rid of what ails you. The next cold or flu that comes around I will be taking it for sure. Great product!

5.0 - Great stuff!
After hearing so many good things about elderberry syrup I decided to try this product. We didn’t have the flu but I ordered it incase we got it this season with our 2 school aged boys. I opened it and used it whenever someone started getting a cold and the symptoms would go away by the next day at best or become more mild at least. And It tastes good. Kinda like blackberry jam. Not overly sugary like other brands. My kids love it. I will keep a bottle of this product on hand for our high risk times of year from now on. Wish the price would go back down tho!!
5.0 - OTC miracle syrup?
My wife seems to think this product is the key to keeping away childhood germs and viruses! She gives it to the kids at the first sign of a cough, cold, etc and seems to think it lessens or eliminates the cold, virus, etc. Placebo or effective?

Works like magic! If I feel the slightest under the weather I take two tabs two times a day for two days and no cold!
5.0 - Delicious, if nothing else
I don't know how to determine if this syrup actually has immune-boosting properties or not. I bought something similar before, and it did seem to help, but it's hard to be sure. This version is thicker and more intense in flavor than the one I had before. The taste is really delicious. I mix a spoonful with sparkling water and drink it when I feel a cold coming on. It could be a placebo effect, or it could be effective. IN any case, if you want to use Black Elderberry, this is a great choice.
5.0 - This is a sweet, concentrated syrup
This is a sweet, concentrated syrup. I take a heaping teaspoon of it when I have the sniffles. I think I might need to do it daily, though, to help stave off a cold entirely. It is a great product that I will enjoy using more of. I appreciate the fact that it is natural also. I am happy with this.
4.0 - Good, Not Great
This is not what I would call a game-changer when sick, but whether its truly the homeopathic ability or a placebo effect, I have noticed it helps alleviate a cold sooner than other medicines I've taken. It certainly tastes better than other cold medicines, which is nice, but its a thick, sweet syrup. Took some getting used to. Luckily, my children were quite happy to take it for that reason alone!
5.0 - Works great to keep the sickness away!
These seem to be working as I have so far avoided the cold while my family has all been sick. I'm the only one taking this product so I'd say it's a win!

I am thinking this stuff works. My kids colds are much shorter and they get exposed to stuff without getting sick (compared to last year- or maybe it's the same colds they aren't getting with stronger immune systems?

5.0 - ... away from natural remedy and rely on UN-natural medicine like thera-flu, vicks
Why oh why do we move away from natural remedy and rely on UN-natural medicine like thera-flu, vicks, nyquil? I keep needing to use this and feel miserable. This is the first cold season that I have had without a flu, cough or cold and I just used Elderberry. I typically end up with 5-6 colds/year because our family is always on the move. Finally a secret weapon to fight from a stale environment we have in winters (Portland, Or - never too cold or never too warm, lots of active bacteria).
5.0 - My family LOVES this stuff! Delicious!
We're big fans of elderberry for immune support and this is the tastiest stuff out there! My husband and I take it by the spoonful during cold season to ward off sickness. It's just a tad bit too strong and perhaps a little tangy for our 2 year-old son; to get around that, we just mix a little of the syrup with water and then it tastes like grape juice and he gulps it right down!
5.0 - No colds or flus
I bought this after reading it was good for keeping colds and flus at bay. I haven't had either. It tastes great as well.
5.0 - Great for the littles!
Daughter loves it! And when the nasty 4 week cold went through our house she had been taking it for about two weeks prior and her cold lasted 2 days only and was very minimal. Coincidence? Maybe. But we will be continuing this in a small dose through winter

My kids started preschool this year after being kept while I worked by my mother in law. They were not regularly around other children. Of course, we made it two days before my youngest had cold symptoms. I went to a local health food store and got this and the nighttime version. My daughter was back to herself in a day! My son started having the same symptoms and he took some as well, and is as good as new! I have been taking some and so has my husband and we have no symptoms! This stuff is a miracle worker!

You can't go wrong with Elderberry. It's good for whatever ails you, especially if your sinuses are bothering you, or you have a cold.
5.0 - I recommend this brand of Elderberry syrup to all my friends ...
I recommend this brand of Elderberry syrup to all my friends to fend off colds and flu. A little pricy, but so worth it.
5.0 - Helps with airborne allergies
I use this product daily when people around me are experiencing cold/flu season. It also seems to help with my seasonal airborne allergies - I think it provides extra vitamin c in a food form but I am not certified in these areas. I just know it helps.
5.0 - Ward off colds, flu naturally
Black elderberry syrup is one of my go-to items when I feel like I’m coming down with a cold – scratchy throat – sniffle, etc. The quantity provided here is more than enough to get you through cold/flu season or to keep on hand when you need it.
5.0 - Love this product.
Good for colds and flu but I also used it when my daughter had molluscum contagiousum. I believe it helped clear up the virus faster than it would have if I didn't have it.
4.0 - Works wonders but horrible taste
I love the gaia elderberry syrup and my kids and I have used for several years. It works wonders and really helps boost our immune system during cold/flu season. I bought this Nighttime version by accident the last time I was at the store and just hate it. While it still works well, I can't stand the herbal taste of the "Nighttime" herbs. It is like herbal tea on steroids. My kids won't take it, so I'm stuck using the entire bottle by myself and had to go back to buy them the regular Gaia Elderberry syrup.
5.0 - This is a great naturopathic way to boost your immune system during cold ...
This is a great naturopathic way to boost your immune system during cold and flu season. It is easy to take and tastes great! Good for kids and adults.
5.0 - Can't live without
I love this product. As a first grade teacher, I'm surrounded by lots of germs. I take a tsb every night to keep myself from catching all the illnesses. Since I have been taking this, I have been able to avoid stomach bugs, flu, and colds.
5.0 - I'm sold.
I ordered this just a few days before my daughter (19 months) ended up with Influenza A despite having a flu shot. I gave her this along with the Tamiflu that was prescribed to her. Her symptoms drastically improved in just a couple of days. I don't know how much of her improvement was because of this and how much was due to the Tamiflu, but it sold me on keeping this as a household staple during cold and flu season!
5.0 - Miracle stuff! I just drank three times a day ...
Miracle stuff! I just drank three times a day and got no symptons of cold at all. My 3 years old son got no night cough anymore as well. I just placed another two bottles order immediately, and I'll order it again and again.
5.0 - Five Stars
Love and trust this brand. Helped me greatly during cold season! A must have.
5.0 - Trusted brand
Great trusted brand. A little pricey but convenient. Helps so much when taken properly. Natural cold and flu fighter. Tastes great too!
5.0 - Very Helpful for Nighttime Cough and Immune Boost
My children were hit with a serious cold/flu thanks to flu vaccinated grandparents "shedding". I know this was the source because I homeschool and my children don't go to daycare. My parents went to the doctor to get antibiotics but my children were given Black Elderberry Syrup, Black Elderberry NightTime Syrup, vitamins, tea (lemon, honey and a little salt) and a small spoonful of diced garlic and honey. My children recovered within two weeks (that's how nasty the bug was) my parents were sick for nearly a month with the cough lingering even longer.
5.0 - Our immune system Buddy!
I have been using this supplement for almost 2 yes now and I am a true believer in black elderberry syrup. I first came across the benefits of this supplements when I was looking for a viral blocker and thru research I found out how black elderberry was used in the 90's to fight the flu epidemic in Panama so I started taking it and giving it to my children during flu season and I haven't stopped since then. I then started following a Holistic Pediatrician blog and he too recommends it for children who are fighting colds and flu or just to keep their immune system going strong. I personally use it as a daily immune system booster but I'm not a Dr, this is just what I do and it has worked. Do your research on black elderberry and when you are ready to buy it look no more, Gaia Herbs is one of the best supplemets manufacturers out there and it's also Organic where very few other ones are.
5.0 - Awesome stuff
I started taking this every day during the cold and flu season this year and I have yet to get sick with anything. I would always get at least a cold in the past years, haven't changed anything else but taking this syrup this year so I believe it is working!
4.0 - Seems to help with the cold sore virus
I go through periods when I get frequent cold sores. Valtrex works but gives me headaches. So the last time I felt the familiar evil tingle I decided to take some of this. By the afternoon, the tingle was gone and the cold sore never appeared. Obviously I need to do a few more trials, but I'm definitely intrigued! The taste is fine, it's a very concentrated grape/berry flavor that could be easily hidden in juice or a smoothie. I have a friend who swears by this for her kids in the winters so I'm eager to see what else it can do.
5.0 - This is the BEST Elderbery Syrup for Increasing Immunity and fighting off colds and flu
I have used store brand, name brand Sanbucol, Sambucus, and NOTHING compares to this.
5.0 - It's good stuff!!
3yo loves this stuff! I mix it in her drink cups and sometimes food, as well, to avoid waste. It's a little syrupy. She does enjoy it by itself, though. It makes the typical preschool colds much easier on her because of the immune boost and much more short lived.
5.0 - Works Great!
My toddler had a nasty cold and nothing was relieving her symptoms. Gaia Black Elderberry was recommended by a Whole Foods nutritionist to help her get some relief. It was amazing how fast it worked! Not only did it relieve her symptoms, it shortened the amount of time she was sick considerably. I now keep Gaia Elderberry Syrup stocked and on hand for whenever anyone in the house gets the sniffles. It tastes wonderful, like jam, so no one minds taking it.
5.0 - I rarely get cold/flu anymore, maybe once a year if that.
I absolutely love this! I take it once a week or whenever I remember to take it. It keeps the colds/flu away! I always recommend it to my friends/family. Everyone is coughing their lungs out, sickly and I'm just here with a smile on my face, healthy as can be.
5.0 - As close to a miracle cure for the common cold as I have ever found.
This seems to really boost the immune system if you use it in time.
5.0 - Works as intended
This helped my son continue functioning and get over a very bad cold quickly. He is also a child who has a hard time physically and mentally relaxing, and therefore an extremely hard time going to sleep. He can be dog-tired, yawning and want to go to sleep, and it can still take 2 hours for him to finally fall asleep.
5.0 - Immune system
I am a healthcare worker and have dealt with the flu for 30 + years now. This product is amazing. My 14 month old nephew tested positive for the flu this season. Fever over 100 and upper respiratory symptoms. His mother chose not to give him Tamiflu after reading the side effects. She used your product. He was fever free and back to playing and eating within 3 days. It is a thick syrup that almost reminds me of jam! Yum. When I feel like i may be catching cold or worse I take a dose just for prevention and must say i have yet to be sick.
5.0 - Used to be my favorite go to for flu and colds
I will say this used to be my favorite brand. They recently have made a change to it and I swear I think it's in my head but it just doesn't seem to work like the old kind did. The old one had 11 50 mg per one or two capsules and looked like it had Berry pulp inside this is some sort of freeze-dried? Stuff in the capsule and I went through a whole bottle and didn't get better. Usually I can take them for a couple days and it knocks out my flu for years I have sworn by this stuff and told everyone that will listen to get it and try it. I sure hope it's not the change in the method or the delivery of how it's stored in the capsule now but I can't figure out what else it could be? It's supposed to be extremely potent even though it looks to be less milk mg because it's a concentrated version It's supposed to actually be more milligrams than the previous? Got to say I'm discouraged. Not sure if it's all in my head but usually when I take it for a week it knocks out whatever I have and this time it did not. May have to look for a new product after this that's my go-to for sinus cold and flu super bummed.
5.0 - Amazing impact on our health!
We started taking this product to prevent flu, colds, etc., and wound up taking it every day. We have found that it has definitely boosted our immunity. Everyone we have recommended it to has also found it has absolutely made them feel better very quickly if they were just coming down with something. They were totally shocked at the quick response/improvement to their health! We swear by it!!! Wouldn't be without it in our house.
5.0 - my resistance to colds is GREAT.
When I take this faithfully, my resistance to colds is GREAT.
5.0 - Five Stars
Worked very well in alleviating cold symptoms and shortening the length of sickness.
5.0 - I liked the product very much back before I discovered clove ...
It works very well in helping to fight a cold that's coming on. However, since I started taking two drops of pure, organic clove oil everyday, I have not been sick at all, even once, in spite of very frequently being around sick, young children in my work, as well as frequently sick family members. Therefore, my last bottle has been sitting in the refrigerator, unused, for a year. I liked the product very much back before I discovered clove oil, but I prefer to prevent viral infections rather than fight them off.
5.0 - love it
Love this stuff. Give it my kids every day in the winter. I feel like it's helped them fight off colds that otherwise they would have gotten.
5.0 - Five Stars
Tates is pleasant and it has decreased the severity of a cold.
5.0 - Highly recommend. It works well for my children.
My Children use this at the first sign of a cold or flu. It helps a lot the relieve the symptoms.
5.0 - Five Stars
Great product for children during times of colds. congestion, and flue. very natural.
5.0 - Miracle syrup...avoid getting your snotty kids' illnesses!
This stuff works wonders! I've not gotten fully sick since I started using this and it either prevents colds altogether or shortens the duration. I've been telling everyone this is a miracle syrup. I'm a nanny working with sick snotty kids all the time, so take it from me!
5.0 - Must have for germ season
Great natural product to boost your immune system. I have kept many a cold and scratchy throat at bay by immediately using this product when I notice symptoms and it works every time. My kids LOVE the taste and would take it every day if I would let the them. My last shipment was damaged in route and I had no trouble contacting the company and getting my replacement order.
5.0 - Love this liquid Elderberry
This is a lifesaver when a cold is coming on! Liquid elderberry is my secret weapon!! Also, this tastes great. Not too sweet, like some of the other liquid elderberry syrups I have tried.
5.0 - It works awesome for my little one
I swear my 2 year old gets sick much less since I put her on this a year ago. She was coming down with a nasty cold once a week. I put her on this and she's maybe been sick 3x in the past year, and all 3x it's when I've been lax at giving her this (or when I'm traveling and my husband forgets). I'm going to keep buying it!
5.0 - Awesome Stuff especially while breastfeeding!
Arrived on time. Excellent stuff! Perfect to use while breastfeeding my daughter for a stuffy head cold.
5.0 - Best Elderberry On The Market!
If I could give this 10 stars, I would! Someone told me about elderberry being a natural remedy for the common cold. I started using this product about 5 years ago and cannot tell you how it’s changed our family’s lives during cold season. What was a normal 5-7 day span is now a 2-3 day. I use this religiously during cold season and the best is that I never have to go the “medicine” route like Mucinex or use any other non-homeopathic kids cold medicine. This works great; it’s the only way I’d go during cold season.
5.0 - A Very Good Product!
Gaia Herbs Black Elderberry Syrup is a great product to keep on hand. It does boost your immune system to help shorten and lessen the effects of a cold. We love that it is organic and can be given to young children with no side effects--and it tastes good, too!
5.0 - This is the only effective brand of elderberry, others ...
This is the only effective brand of elderberry, others don't work. This product reduces the duration and severity of colds and flus.
4.0 - Seems to work, bad taste!
In my quest to find something to prevent my annual bout with the flu, I decided to try this syrup. First off, it tastes pretty bad. It's sour but not in a good way, with a kind of vomit aftertaste. But, what's a bad taste compared to the flu? Feeling myself getting a cold, I started taking this and I got better rather quickly, and symptoms were not as severe as usual. Whether it's truly the syrup or a placebo effect, I don't know, but honestly I don't really think it matters as long as I'm seeing results. I will continue taking it, in the hope I can escape my annual visitor this year.

Taste good. I bought it because my son regularly gets cold.
4.0 - My kids don't like the taste
My kids don't like the taste. But well, if it's a good product, I'll still manage to make them take it. I've only have it for a week, so far it has helped my daughter who just caught a cold, to be much better the next day. We'll see how it goes.

I take this each night before bed, and it does seem to help my immune system fight off colds.
5.0 - Kids like the taste and it works too!
My kids love the taste of this stuff. We tried another brand and they won't take it, but this stuff they will. I've definitely seen improvement in their ability to keep colds at bay and at the first sign of a cold, if I give it to them, it definitely keeps it from getting worse. The only suggestion I could make about this product is that they make it available in a larger quantity as my two kids go through this stuff pretty quickly during cold season.
5.0 - Amazing!!
I love this product, my family and I take it at the first sign of an illness. It'll take your typical cold from 5-7 days down to 2 days. It is a miracle syrup!
5.0 - A Must-Have During the Flu Season
I've been taking this daily this winter and I must say I haven't gotten any colds thus far. When working an an open environment with many people ill with colds and flu, I have to say this product has contributed to strengthening my immune system. Thank goodness kids can take this as well. My daughter takes it daily as well. And must I say, no colds this year for her as well! I highly recommend taking this product. This is now a must-have every year in my home!
5.0 - helps kids immune system!!
I swear this helps my kids (4 & 2) immune system!! They get the occasional colds, but this every other morning in their oj/water they drink it up. Nice flavor & I think shortens their colds.
5.0 - Five Stars
Works great to stop cold dead in its track
5.0 - must have
My family survives off of this. It makes the cold and flu season easier to deal with for all ages.
5.0 - This is a great product and it works
This is a great product and it works. We take one teaspoon a day and it has helped us to avoid colds this year.
4.0 - Good value, simple ingredient list, and actually works but the full dose causes stomach upset
I'm normally a skeptic about products like this, but this has really helped me this past cold/flu season. It is higher quality than other elderberry products I have tried and also seems to work better than others. I love the simple ingredient list, which is pretty hard to find in an elderberry product. It is only concentrated elderberry, concentrated acerola fruit, sugar cane juice, water, and lemon juice. Many other elderberry products have echinacea, more sugar, or other added ingredients. I keep it in the fridge, have a teaspoon a day as soon as I feel that throat tickle or the kids get a cold, and I either don't get sick at all or have fewer and less severe symptoms.
5.0 - Amazing!!
Love, Love, Love this product!!! The taste is outstanding compared to other brands and the form of Vitamin C Acerola is great too. My kids take it without any problems and actually ask for more!! We take it at the first sign of cold symptoms and it actually works!
5.0 - Great tasting and effective
Taste is amazing and I think it really helped shorten my cold.
5.0 - good quality and it works
A great not too sweet syrup to have on hand during the cold and flu season.
5.0 - ALL NATURAL, MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER FAST
Delicious taste! Excellent as everyone says - I came down with a terrible cold (the coughing was non stop, so bad that my sides hurt !!) but in just a couple of days I was at least able to function. I plan on taking this as a daily tonic (one teaspoon) daily, but if I

The taste isn't the best, but will say that this one works fast as soon as I feel sick. It completely takes away any sore throat or cold.
5.0 - I purchased this product and am so pleased that I've ordered another bottle
After much research, I purchased this product and am so pleased that I've ordered another bottle. I have had bronchial asthma for a good part of my 71 years and simple colds for anyone else can put me in the hospital. This syrup is great and appears to be preventing things from becoming worse.
5.0 - Kept my colds at bay all winter
I don't pop vitamins all day or believe I can stop a cold with herbs. But I noticed this product smack in the middle of cold and flu season here in the Northeast and ordered it. The next day (seriously) I felt crappy and was sure I was getting sick. So I tried the elderberry syrup--and I admit I took a little more than the recommended dose. The next day, I felt fine but took it again just to be safe (regular dose this time). And that threatening cold never developed. I was 100 percent fine. Coincidence? Possibly. But I've used it a few more times, always wth the same result. I'm not saying It's a cure-all. But it sure helped keep me healthy this past winter.
5.0 - WONDER HERB!
Best product on the market for colds and flu. Don't let the taste fool you! I take it in conjunction with fresh brewed ginger and hibiscus tea. Best remedy for the Fall and Winter months.
4.0 - In the past, I have always found this effective ...
In the past, I have always found this effective during cold and flu season. It stopped the chronic sinusitis I used to have. Now I am very disturbed that the larger bottle of the syrup has disappeared and the general supply of the syrup has dwindled. Now there is tremendous price gouging going on for the syrup that is left. As a result those of us that have come to rely on this syrup to boost our immunity are left in the lurch. What is going on?
5.0 - Really helps!
Really helps sore throats and stopped my cold in it's tracks. I would recommend this to everyone during this flu season.
5.0 - This is an excellent addition to my kids smoothies
This is an excellent addition to my kids smoothies. It tastes great and here's to hoping it keeps them well during cold/flu season!
5.0 - Five Stars
So good especially for colds and flues!
5.0 - Better than nyquil or dayquil
Truly rapid relief. Felt soreness in my throat and just after 1 dosage, my throat felt relief and the the cold did not progress. Bought this for the whole family. Better than nyquil or dayquil. Absolutely no side effects. Taste super yummy, like crushed sweet blueberries.
5.0 - BEST black elderberry I've found!
This stuff is the real deal. Better than sambucus. I am currently putting in my smoothie daily for inflammation. It has also knocked out several colds and viruses over the years. Always keep a bottle on hand!!
5.0 - nice
makes me feel proactive and so far not even a cold
5.0 - A miracle cure!
I am so glad I decided to give this a try. I suffered with a cold and chest congestion for a week and a half, until this arrived in the mail. First dose--and I was cough-free for the night. Slept peacefully. I ordered the smaller size because Amazon's subscribe and save program makes it more affordable, though I admit it is not cheap to begin with. But it is definitely worth the price, and I intend to keep it on hand as a part of my permanent medicine kit.
5.0 - I've been taking one tsp of this daily for 2 ...
I've been taking one tsp of this daily for 2 years. No flu or colds since. I totally believe the claims of boosting the immune system!
5.0 - works like a charm
I take this 2x a day when I feel a cold coming on and it really works. It's worth the price.
5.0 - great product
I always look for natural remedies and methods to cure or prevent ailments. In the past I have made my own black elderberry syrup, but in my current location elderberries are not available. Or, I should say, I have had trouble buying them. This is a great alternative to making your own. My family has been healthy and avoided the colds and flu since taking elderberry syrup. Highly recommend!
5.0 - Try it!
A friend suggested Black Elderberry Syrup when I felt like a had a cold coming on. I still felt a little congested for a day or 2 but other than that, stayed healthy. I've continued to take a teaspoon a day as the people in my office & my kids have all been sick & (knock on wood) still stayed healthy. I've given it to my kids & it seems like, although they have been sick, never really had the full-on cold.
5.0 - Awesome
Great size, reasonably priced & very concentrated so not as much needed. Whenever any of us get sick I start the sick person on 1 tsp every 2 hours. Usually knocks out cold/cough/fever/flu within 12 hours. I mix w/ juice or gatorade but can be taken alone as well.
5.0 - Works!!
Works so good if you have a cold coming on!
5.0 - Tastes very sweet and works great!!!!
I bought a "healthier" brand without as much sugar. I have found I do not even want to use it when I need it. I am back to my old favorite Gaia brand Elderberry. I don't mind the sugar at least I take it when needed. I found when I get the first sign of a cold or tingling throat I take this and in 2 years I have not had more than a minor cold. Even when the rest of the family (that refuse that weird stuff) is suffering and can't breathe I am only sniffing a little bit.
5.0 - This is a wonderful supplement during cold season
This is a wonderful supplement during cold season. Delicious and effective. Elderberry works as a shield to keep out viruses and colds. We depend on it every winter, and as a result have suffered far fewer sinus/chest infections than during years when we did not use it.
5.0 - HIGHLY recommend!!
This is the only syrup my 18 month old will take. It really does work to help his immune system! (Knock on wood) hasn't been sick once this cold/flu season. HIGHLY recommend!!
5.0 - No cold this winter!
I haven't been sick all winter, I guess my friend was absolutely right! I will be buying again! I tried other kinds, but this one is my favorite!
5.0 - Helped cut my cold in half
A few different people told me to try Elderberry Syrup to ward off colds, and I have to say I think it works! My whole family has had a really terrible cold and have not taken this, but I've taken 2 doses of this a day and my cold - which was still pretty bad - lasted half as long as usual. The syrup is quite thick but seems effective - anything to help keep me out of the doctor's office! Most people think this tastes great... I think it sort of tastes like marinara. But again, seems worth it to cut my symptoms in half. I'll keep taking it on a regular basis to keep my immune system up.
5.0 - Amazing
I am convinced this works. Twice now I have gotten a bad cold. Within 24 hours of taking this stuff I feel so much better. My family also takes it and we've prevented the spread of germs in our household. The taste is a little bitter but way better than cough medicine.
5.0 - Amazing stuff
I'm a registered nurse, and often skeptic when it comes to homeopathic remedies. Everyone at work was coming down with flu-like symptoms and colds. I woke up with a horrible sore throat, and started taking a generous teaspoon of this stuff 2x/day. Three days later: sore throat is almost healed and NO nasal symptoms. This stuff literally stopped a nasty cold in its tracks. I made my husband take it as a preventative, as well. Truly works!!!
5.0 - Five Stars
All moms should busy during winter season. Helps minimize down time and prevents several colds.
5.0 - Best immunity booster!!
My whole family takes this, myself, my husband, and my 3 year old. Our naturopathic doc suggested we do this as an immunity booster and wow does it work. My son has had one cold this entire school year and he gets this every day!! It tastes so yummy. I am very upset that I just got notice it isn't on subscribe and save anymore, totally disappointed!! Gaia is the only brand we buy, on the box you can track where your herbs come from and their journey its pretty cool to support a company so dedicated to quality ingredients!!

This definitely shortens the duration of colds and other minor illnesses.

Like this product very much during winter cold & flu season as it seems to head off whatever one thinks they are coming down with. Tastes
5.0 - My favorite Elderberry brand---really works!
I love this syrup! I take it when I'm starting to feel sick and during my cold and I think it helps to shorten the length of my cold as well as reduces the severity of my symptoms. It does not make me feel drowsy, and I take it at any time of day. It tastes like sour blackberries and raspberries.
5.0 - so good!
Use to prevent colds & flu. So far, so good!
5.0 - Great virus prevention
I pop a few of these whenever I feel a cold coming on, go to bed, then take a few over the next few days whenever I feel the cold trying to come back. So far it has saved me from getting a full blown cold, which is great' since I normally catch everything going around and am down for days and days.
5.0 - Take it when you feel a cold coming on...
It's Gaia so I knew it'd be good. I take it when I feel a cold coming on and I believe it helps more than anything else I've tried. It's yummy, too!
5.0 - While everyone around us was dropping like flies, we remained healthy and never slowed down
I refuse to be without this stuff during cold and flu season. While everyone around us was dropping like flies, we remained healthy and never slowed down! It doesn't taste bad, either...very sweet...but there were no complaints from my sweet tooth kiddos!
4.0 - Love those old time remedies
For colds I use Cold-Eze to ward them off or keep them short and mild. If I get something else, Elderberry Syrup is the go-to preventative. I like the flavor and the results. I won’t use the drug companies’ remedies unless all else fails. In the long run they actually run your body down and leave you vulnerable to worse things.
5.0 - Very effective for us.
My kids haven't gotten sick since I started this. It took about a month and a half to get in their system. They both used to get these weird colds every 2 months and I can't even tell you the last time they've had one. If they seem to come down with something, it doesn't seem to attack them as hard and they're back to normal the next day or two. This is a nice product.
5.0 - Kids will actually want to take this
Taste good, seems to lessen colds. I feel it even helps ward off colds too

I purchased this on the recommendation of a good friend after having two very bad colds in a short period of time. So far I have stayed well with many sick around me. Seems everyone has had a cold or flu every where I've gone for the last few months!!
5.0 - My kids and I have been taking this for about ...
My kids and I have been taking this for about two weeks now. My 3 year old son is in daycare and my 11 year old daughter is in 5th grade. My daughter came home Friday with a stuffed up nose and a cough. I immediately gave her a dose of this syrup. I had been giving it every other day. She got a dose Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The cough and stuffiness generally subsided. She went to school Monday with no problems. I'm attributing her getting over whatever she had (even if it was just a common cold) so fast to the Elderberry. This child is a former preemie who has had multiple surgeries and suffers from respiratory issues every winter!! The 2017-2018 flu season is running RAMPANT and I wanted to do everything I could to protect her!
5.0 - I reiterate all the good things you see on other reviews
I reiterate all the good things you see on other reviews. This is miracle syrup when it comes to fighting cold and flue.
5.0 - Five Stars
great for my toddler when he gets a cold
4.0 - Baby likes flavor
My one year old has only had one cold so far and even though I gave her this every day, it still took 10 days to clear up. Not sure if it helped or not:/ Although her cousin was sick for over a month after attending the same kids party, so maybe it did. But the baby did take the doses without protest, so I guess it tastes good!
5.0 - Tried others- this is the best for my daughter
We have tried Sambucol, Gaia, and Nature's Way. My daughter prefers the taste of Gaia to the others, and I notice an improvement in any cold symptoms immediately with Gaia. Even though Sambucol is the only one clinically tested, Gaia has the same concentration and it is organic. The proof is in the pudding....Gaia works.
5.0 - The real deal.
Great product! Very similar to the expensive stuff from a naturopath. Tastes great and I notice an improvement in cold and flu symptoms when taking this.
5.0 - Truly works
I use this product all through the winter with both my children to keep their immune system strong and resistant to flu and cold viruses. This is a very good way to fight those germs and I use it even for myself if I feel like I am coming down with something. I would and have been recommending this to friends and family!
5.0 - It's a must have during cold and flu season!
This stuff works!
5.0 - Worth trying!
I've been using it for 2 months and haven't gotten sick! Husband and 3 year old have both had bad colds at different times that I haven't caught. I'm 32 weeks pregnant now and already had a cold in early Fall so I was ready to try anything to avoid getting sick. My 3 year old is willing to take the syrup when he's not sick if he sees me doing it. It tastes similar to blackberry syrup. I know a lot of other factors contribute to how likely a person is to get sick but it's nice to there's one more thing I can do to boost my immune system.
5.0 - Great in smoothies or just plain
This includes natural Vitamin C from Acerola cherries, contains no artificial flavors or colors, no preservatives, and no high fructose corn syrup. Immune support for the whole season. As soon I feel symptoms of a cold I take one teaspoon in the morning and one teaspoon in the evening. The next day I'm back to not feeling any symptoms. Great immune booster. The taste is a bit tart. I will put it in a smoothie or drink. I love this product and it is never not in my home. I will buy two at a time to have backup. Highly recommend this. It will keep you from making a trip to the doctors.

This is the only brand of Elderberry that keeps my family and myself healthy so we never get colds, flu or allergy symptoms
5.0 - great
Great taste. It is a little syrupy and hard to drink out of a medicine measuring cup, so I put it into a tea cup and add cold water to it. Children like it better this way and still get all the benefits. New staple in our house. The best tasting one we tried so far. Amazing fresh flavor and taste. Feels like someone just made it yesterday.

The best to use with a winter cold.
4.0 - I use this when I feel like I'm about to get a cold
I use this when I feel like I'm about to get a cold, as soon as I take this the next day that cold feeling is gone.
5.0 - prevents and minimizes illnesses!
Our pediatrician recommended this as a preventative measure for my kids during cold/flu season, and it worked great! The most my kids got last winter was a mild cold, and this was after being exposed to the flu/colds in school. I told a friend who has been taking it since last year and said she was the only one in her office that did not get the flu (and she gets sick easily due to her asthma). Worth every penny!
5.0 - Keep on hand
This is great to have on hand to take at the first sign of a cold or flu.
4.0 - Pretty sure this is helping my immune system
My friend who is a naturopathic doctor told me that I should get this to help the immune system. I was telling her how sick my kids always are with colds and such, and she said if there was one thing to take the second you start feeling weak or, if you can, on a daily basis, it would be this syrup to help immune system naturally ward off basic illnesses. Well...we have been taking it for years. We don't take it daily simply because of the price, but as soon as the kids don't feel great I give them each a teaspoon of this a day for weeks. It seems to do the trick--we don't get too sick that often.
5.0 - good seller
bought this item based on other reviews to help build immune system during cold and flu season it works and taste good also
5.0 - Helpful cold and flu remedy and immune system booster
I had picked this up at Whole Foods initially when it was featured, I saw it and remembered hearing Dr. Oz on one of his shows had recommended elderberry as a remedy to help shorten colds and the flu. One evening I became congested and had other cold-like symptoms and worried I was in for a bout of being sick, so decided to try it. I woke up relieved of all symptoms, which I found amazing. I did some subsequent research and discovered it is even effective against H1N1. Good stuff!
4.0 - Great for stubborn long problems
This stuff is really good for respiratory conditions. If you have a chronic bronchitis, or a long cold or flu that will not go away, definitely give this a try.

5.0 - My bff this time of year!
This is wonderful. My friend had bought me some and I now get it here on Amazon. The taste isn't too bad too. It doesn't bother my heartburn/reflux at all, but it does hit you a little sweet and a little sour. Maybe eat something before and/or after. Most importantly though, I feel it really is great to boost your immune system and knock out illnesses. From my experience - I started feeling like I got hit by a bus out of nowhere, I immediately started taking some (I actually doubled up the recommended dose and took it like a cough syrup - not recommended for all.) for the first two days and honestly, it knocked it right out of my system! I work in an Urgent Care so I'm surrounded by colds etc. This helps, especially during this season to combat it. I take it regularly (normal dosage) to prevent any bugs and beef up my immune system too throughout the year. I highly recommend trying it and wanted to make sure I do write a review. :) As a frequent Amazon user and consumer/shopper in general, I always appreciate reading some reviews before buying a product! So, here you go! Wonderful product and you can even track where your herbs come from. Haven't tried it, but I think that's pretty cool. Take care!
5.0 - This not only tastes good; but really works
This not only tastes good; but really works. It typically knocks out cold symptoms in 2-3 days for me. It may seem a bit pricey; but it's worth every penny!

I came across this syrup at my local lassens store, i went in because looking something natural for my daughter horrible cough! I found this, &nd it has worked wonders!!

5.0 - Great cold/flu remedy.
I take this regularly in the winter months and take more of it when someone in the house is ill or I feel ill. My kids will take this right off the spoon since it's based in honey. Great cold/flu remedy. Our home is never without it.
4.0 - Helping cut the duration of my cold
Heard about this from a coworker that swears by it to help boost the immune system during cold and flu season especially. I purchased it because I am sick very often as a result from teaching two year olds so I'm constantly exposed to germs. So I'm not going to lie but the taste is very bitter to me, some people say they like it. I myself am not a fan. I had the idea to mix it into a glass of apple juice to mask the taste which seems to help with the taste quite a bit. So I've only been on this for a month and did have a cold but I feel that the duration of the cold was a lot shorter than it usually is.
5.0 - I felt a bad cold coming when meeting a friend at a healthfood ...
I felt a bad cold coming when meeting a friend at a healthfood store for lunch. They don't carry my usual brand of black elderberry syrup, so I tried this mostly because I felt too lousy to drive to another store. Wow. Within just a day or so I was back to my old self, and the cold never really hit past that first day. I should add that I took it 4x a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and bedtime) instead of the 2x day the label recommended. I've had decent luck in the past with 
5.0 - They love it (but they are so used to it
I would never ever go through a flu season with out this liquid gold!!! Seriously. My kids take a 1/2 tsp every night for immune boosting. If they are starting a cold they get it 2x a day.
5.0 - Perfect immunity boost!
I love this! Whenever I or my kids start coming down with an illness, I immediately have us start taking Black Elderberry Syrup. The syrup is sweet, and the children love taking it. I've noticed that when we do take it, we recover faster from our colds. It gives the perfect immunity boost that we need.
5.0 - Miracle worker!
I can't believe this syrup!! It's too good to be true. My four year old has been constantly down with cold and cough and I tried honey, cough syrups but in vain. I wanted to boost her immunity so that she doesn't catch it in the first place. That's when I came across Gaia kids elderberry syrup. After reading so many positive reviews I thought I'll give it a try. My kid was suffering from continuous night cough since four days and the night I have her the syrup the cough was gone. I continued giving her half tsp twice daily for two more days and the cough and cold completely subsided. I now continue to give her half tsp once daily to boost her immunity.
5.0 - Best preventive maintenance ever
I think this is magic in a bottle. I have used it at the onset of a cold and it helps within 24 hours. Even after the cold or virus has set in, this product helps it run its course faster than using other products. I have tried different brands, but swear by Gaia Herbs, as it is more concentrated than other brands. My whole family takes it and loves it - not the taste and thickness, but the results!
5.0 - Trying our best to boost his immune system
I can't quite speak to the efficacy of this yet since we started to give it to my toddler everyday as a preventative about two weeks ago. He has RAD (toddler asthma) and his trigger is a cold. Trying our best to boost his immune system. I did a lot of research on elderberry and this is the only brand I feel comfortable giving. It really is only elderberry and honey. Other brands include echinachea and while I am sure it works, I just don't want to give those mixtures to a toddler. He takes it in his morning almond milk like a champ so only time will tell if it works but from these reviews and others across the web, I am pretty confident and excited about it.
5.0 - you are better off with the Organic Gaia brand
Our lives are vastly improved by using this product. The sugars at 4 grams per tsp are less than in any other Elderberry product and using less tsp - two a day- with GAIA compared to 14 grams per tsp and taking 8 tsp a day with the other product, you are better off with the Organic Gaia brand. We have used this product for the past year... and it was the only thing to knock out a bad case of bronchitis for me. This summer we both had colds and using it cuts the length of the cold down for each of us to four days or less and the cold was less severe. If you google this product you will find it also helps with flus and other viruses. Maintenance dose is 1 tsp a day if you are in need and then if you do catch something it ups to a second tsp. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
5.0 - ... I felt a cold coming on & it worked like a charm
Used this several times when I felt a cold coming on & it worked like a charm....So glad to have something other than the over the counter poisons.
5.0 - Helps keep my toddler healthy.
My toddler (3 year old) son used to get colds all the time after starting daycare. After taking Gaia Herbs and taking other precautions, he's been nearly cold free for about 2 months now :)
5.0 - Great product
I swear by this stuff during cold and flu season. It also helps me to sleep. And it tastes really good, almost like a dessert topping! It does come out very thick after it is refrigerated. I have experienced zero negative side effects, although if you took it during the day time, it might make you drowsy. I will continue to buy it as long as Gaia keeps making it.

5.0 - Love this product!
Has already helped me avoid one cold, and shortened the duration of one I wasn't able to completely avoid. I normally get colds that last for 2-3 weeks with a horrible barking cough, but taking this has made a huge difference. I had a cold this past week, took this twice a day, and it was basically gone within 5 days with no chronic cough. I've also been giving it to my daughter to support her immune health, and to help support us both through this cold/flu season.
5.0 - Great product
I used this during my pregnancy when I would catch little colds and this would knock it right out. Safe to use during pregnancy and very effective. I will continue to use this over those other brands filled with all those garbage ingredients
5.0 - Must have to keep illnesses away!
We prefer the gummies. This stuff taste pretty awful. I'm sure it works the same. It's a must have during cold/flu season.
5.0 - Great item in your holistic medicine cabinet
My family takes this when anyone is starting to feel a bit under the weather with a cold, sore throat or the like. We've found it either stops it in its tracks or significantly shortens the infection period. I keep this on hand all year long.

A friend of mine recommended Black Elderberry when I thought I was coming down with a cold. I took a couple of tablespoons and most of my symptoms were gone overnight. After my great results I told my sister who gave some to my nieces & nephews and they too had great results. I have now been using Gaia Black Elderberry for the past two years - along with healthy eating and exercise I have been cold free :)

I have used this product for years and noramlly buy from a local vendor but they did not have any on the shelf. This is a good buy for the size bottle you get. I use it to build my immune system for the winter months and if I feel a cold or something coming on I take 3 tsp a day and it seems to help hold it off. Love the product.
5.0 - I recommend this to all my family and friends if they ...
Black elderberry from GAIA is the real thing. I recommend this to all my family and friends if they are getting sick. I take it every time I feel like I am "coming down with something" and within 24 hours I am completely better! It is great to take daily to keep from getting sick during the winter when lots of viruses and such are going around. I even opened up the capsule and poured into some food for my 4 year old when she was sick with a bad cold and she felt better that same day. I 100% stand behind this product from GAIA. It's also good for those with allergies and can help minimize symptoms if taken daily or reduce the need for allergy medicine.
5.0 - BEST black elderberry I've found!
This stuff is the real deal. Better than sambucus. I am currently putting in my smoothie daily for inflammation. It has also knocked out several colds and viruses over the years. Always keep a bottle on hand!!

We have tried Sambucol, Gaia, and Nature's Way. My daughter prefers the taste of Gaia to the others, and I notice an improvement in any cold symptoms immediately with Gaia. Even though Sambucol is the only one clinically tested, Gaia has the same concentration and it is organic. The proof is in the pudding....Gaia works.

5.0 - Good for fighting colds/allergies
I take this and zinc when I feel cold or allergies coming on, and so far I haven't had problems with either this season..
5.0 - Excellent assist to our immune system!
The Gaia Herbs Black Elderbery Syrup, I feel, is one of the best available; I know because I've purchased a lot of company's black elderberry syrups over the years. Made in Italy, its quality and good energy are apparent immediately upon opening the bottle. I take it by mixing it with herbs I use for liver detox along with spring or filtered water. I know it helps to knock out colds or other issues before they can get a hold on me.
5.0 - Helps with keeping my kids healthy during cold/flu season!!
love this!! My daughter started taking this almost daily in February 2018 at about 18 months old, about 22lbs. we discussed using it with our pediatrician before hand and received their blessing. I would talk with your child's doctor before administering. My daughter goes to day care full time and was just always getting upper respiratory colds. we started giving this to her almost daily and it worked so well!! i was so shocked!! Shes been sick with colds/random virsus maybe twice since february. Worked great during cold/flu season! if she got a cold, it was for a day or two and then she was fine! She has had other viruses (HFM and roseolla, but i dont think really anything can protect kids from those). now that its summer we haven't been giving it to her, but plan to once fall/winter comes. it is VERY sweet and my daughter wouldn't take it directly, so we ended up putting it in her milk. didnt really impact the taste of the milk though, so thats worked for us. If you kiddos are constantly sick with colds/viruses, try this!! (after talking to your doctor ;) ), it worked really really well! I wish i knew about it sooner!!
5.0 - love it
Love this stuff. Give it my kids every day in the winter. I feel like it's helped them fight off colds that otherwise they would have gotten.

This is a must for cold and flu we have used it for years. I keep a bottle on hand and this has been the best brand for us. Also works amazing for dogs with kennel cough which is how I first found it. Cured her in 2 days.
5.0 - This stuff is amazing!
This is concentrated elderberry syrup and well worth the cost. It helps boost your immune system in general. However, we take this mainly in the winter months when it's cold/flu season. We take it as a preventative and the up the dose when we feel something coming on, or are in the midst of it.

5.0 - One of my favorite cold and flu remedies
We use this anytime we get sick, and I really believe it helps! I couldn't be without it.
5.0 - Don't think twice, get it!
For those of you comparing prices of elderberry syrup, you get what you pay for. This product is super condensed so you only need a small dose. The nature's way syrup is watered down, so my family went through a whole bottle in a week! Gaia herb products are very high quality and this stuff is potent! It significantly shortens the length of our colds and I believe it protects the viruses from spreading. Fall and winter we take it often but when a cold strikes we take this syrup a few times a day. We also drink warm tea with raw honey and raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar. This stuff works great and I highly recommend it!
5.0 - Seems to work as a preventative
While taking this, I did seem to have less problems with my allergies and with colds. Everyone was passing a nasty bug around at work and I for once didn't get it! It tastes great and the only complaint I have would be that it seems expensive.

So healthy and delicious. I just want to pour it on my pancakes! No more colds!
5.0 - Very good!
I am very satisfied with this product. I have used the syrup either straight or mixed. I have taken a teaspoonful straight and it tastes pretty good and not too sweet. I have mixed a teaspoonful with 8 to 12 oz Perrier carbonated water for a kind of healthy soda (non sugary, more like elderberry essence soda water) with a very nice deep purple color due to the concentrated syrup. I cannot speak much to its use as a cough syrup/suppressant or for cold prevention since it is not currently the cold & flu season. It may boost the immune system since I have not gotten sick since I started using this product about 2 to 3x week for a month and also I have not really been affected by allergies during spring pollen season.

I just purchased these Gaia Herbs Black Eldenbury Liquid Phyto Capsules by Gaia Herbs. My kids are always trying to get me to take these when I am under the weather. Well last week I felt some type of cold or virus coming on. I purchased these and started taking one in the morning and one in the night. This seriously knocked it right out and I only was mildly sick for a couple of days. Clinical studies proved that this can help shorten viruses in the bloodstream.

This helps us get better a LOT quicker than before we used it. Moreso for me than my husband. I will be better in 4-5 days from a cold, just about completely over it. He will take longer but has sinus issues. I ordered one in Jan. and went to use it in Oct and it was expired. Grrrr. Wasted $20.
5.0 - Sometimes you need that extra help in sleeping when you are beating back a cold
I love the regular Gaia Elderberry Syrup, but there are occasions when this version, with its gentle natural sleep aids added, is the perfect choice. Thanks Gaia!
5.0 - Delicious and effective immune booster!
This is a great item to have in your remedy cupboard, if you don't already use it on a daily basis to boost your immune response during the winter months. Elderberry has been researched in Europe and Israel, and proven to be effective in helping fight a cold or flu and shorten the duration of the illness. The syrup is very flavorful and pleasantly sweet. It contains a small amount of sugar, but not corn syrup. If you don't want to take it by the spoonful directly, it is delicious mixed with a half cup of cold water. Or, it is very soothing mixed with a half a cup of hot water. I've tried other brands, and Gaia is very fresh tasting, and works as well as the brand that has been on the market for years. It's wonderful when a simple, natural remedy actually works!

My kids and I have been taking this for about two weeks now. My 3 year old son is in daycare and my 11 year old daughter is in 5th grade. My daughter came home Friday with a stuffed up nose and a cough. I immediately gave her a dose of this syrup. I had been giving it every other day. She got a dose Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The cough and stuffiness generally subsided. She went to school Monday with no problems. I'm attributing her getting over whatever she had (even if it was just a common cold) so fast to the Elderberry. This child is a former preemie who has had multiple surgeries and suffers from respiratory issues every winter!! The 2017-2018 flu season is running RAMPANT and I wanted to do everything I could to protect her!

I bought the night time formula by mistake, but I always take this syrup when I feel run-down or like I might be coming down with a cold, and I definitely feel like it's helped me fight off sickness. I recommend it to everyone. It's the most potent brand available and it tastes like jam!

4.0 - Amazing taste
I'm disappointed this item didn't appear on Vine until after the cold/flu season because I would've loved to compare it to standard OTC medicines. So I cannot speak as to whether it's comparable or even works in that regard. After reading about its benefits online, I do plan to put it to the test this coming winter. It is more expensive than standard cold/flu medicines, but it being organic and all-natural helps offset its price. My son is prone to respiratory ailments so to me it's worth a try.
5.0 - GREAT PRODUCT!

I'm not sure how much this helped but I think it shortened my cold. And when you are feeling awful it is so nice to have Amazon ship medicine to my doorstep.
5.0 - Highly recommend. It works well for my children.
My Children use this at the first sign of a cold or flu. It helps a lot the relieve the symptoms.
5.0 - Great stuff!
After hearing so many good things about elderberry syrup I decided to try this product. We didn’t have the flu but I ordered it incase we got it this season with our 2 school aged boys. I opened it and used it whenever someone started getting a cold and the symptoms would go away by the next day at best or become more mild at least. And It tastes good. Kinda like blackberry jam. Not overly sugary like other brands. My kids love it. I will keep a bottle of this product on hand for our high risk times of year from now on. Wish the price would go back down tho!!
5.0 - OTC miracle syrup?
My wife seems to think this product is the key to keeping away childhood germs and viruses! She gives it to the kids at the first sign of a cough, cold, etc and seems to think it lessens or eliminates the cold, virus, etc. Placebo or effective? If she thinks it works I guess it doesn't matter, saves me a co-pay!

Works like magic! If I feel the slightest under the weather I take two tabs two times a day for two days and no cold!
5.0 - Delicious, if nothing else
I don't know how to determine if this syrup actually has immune-boosting properties or not. I bought something similar before, and it did seem to help, but it's hard to be sure. This version is thicker and more intense in flavor than the one I had before. The taste is really delicious. I mix a spoonful with sparkling water and drink it when I feel a cold coming on. It could be a placebo effect, or it could be effective. IN any case, if you want to use Black Elderberry, this is a great choice.
5.0 - This is a sweet, concentrated syrup
This is a sweet, concentrated syrup. I take a heaping teaspoon of it when I have the sniffles. I think I might need to do it daily, though, to help stave off a cold entirely. It is a great product that I will enjoy using more of. I appreciate the fact that it is natural also. I am happy with this.
5.0 - Works great to keep the sickness away!
These seem to be working as I have so far avoided the cold while my family has all been sick. I'm the only one taking this product so I'd say it's a win!
5.0 - The only think that works for me
This is the best remedy for the starting of a cold... the minute I feel run down I start taking this and Boom.... cold is very mild or I do not catch it at all...
4.0 - natural cold remedy
i haven't really tried this product, but i recommended it to a friend who is a Bioligist and he said it truly worked! also i gave one bottle to my daughter and she said that it worked too. Her colds did not linger for three weeks as is normally the case for ordinary colds.
5.0 - great immune booster!
We keep this on hand through cold season. Mix a tsp in a small cup of water, you can also add in whatever other remedies you want to get into your kids, the sweet taste of the elderberry will make it go down easy.
5.0 - Keep on buying it!
I am thinking this stuff works. My kids colds are much shorter and they get exposed to stuff without getting sick (compared to last year- or maybe it's the same colds they aren't getting with stronger immune systems? I don't know!!). I give them 1/4 tsp twice per day along with other vitamins and supplements. They are 2
5.0 - ... away from natural remedy and rely on UN-natural medicine like thera-flu, vicks
Why oh why do we move away from natural remedy and rely on UN-natural medicine like thera-flu, vicks, nyquil? I keep needing to use this and feel miserable. This is the first cold season that I have had without a flu, cough or cold and I just used Elderberry. I typically end up with 5-6 colds/year because our family is always on the move. Finally a secret weapon to fight from a stale environment we have in winters (Portland, Or - never too cold or never too warm, lots of active bacteria).
5.0 - My family LOVES this stuff! Delicious!
We're big fans of elderberry for immune support and this is the tastiest stuff out there! My husband and I take it by the spoonful during cold season to ward off sickness. It's just a tad bit too strong and perhaps a little tangy for our 2 year-old son; to get around that, we just mix a little of the syrup with water and then it tastes like grape juice and he gulps it right down!
5.0 - No colds or flus
I bought this after reading it was good for keeping colds and flus at bay. I haven't had either. It tastes great as well.
5.0 - Great for the littles!
Daughter loves it! And when the nasty 4 week cold went through our house she had been taking it for about two weeks prior and her cold lasted 2 days only and was very minimal. Coincidence? Maybe. But we will be continuing this in a small dose through winter

Good to avoid any cold or cough
5.0 - Our go-to cold and flu remedy
Our go-to cold and flu remedy. Love this stuff!
5.0 - My bff this time of year!
This is wonderful. My friend had bought me some and I now get it here on Amazon. The taste isn't too bad too. It doesn't bother my heartburn/reflux at all, but it does hit you a little sweet and a little sour. Maybe eat something before and/or after. Most importantly though, I feel it really is great to boost your immune system and knock out illnesses. From my experience - I started feeling like I got hit by a bus out of nowhere, I immediately started taking some (I actually doubled up the recommended dose and took it like a cough syrup - not recommended for all.) for the first two days and honestly, it knocked it right out of my system! I work in an Urgent Care so I'm surrounded by colds etc. This helps, especially during this season to combat it. I take it regularly (normal dosage) to prevent any bugs and beef up my immune system too throughout the year. I highly recommend trying it and wanted to make sure I do write a review. :) As a frequent Amazon user and consumer/shopper in general, I always appreciate reading some reviews before buying a product! So, here you go! Wonderful product and you can even track where your herbs come from. Haven't tried it, but I think that's pretty cool. Take care!

This stuff is amazing! At the sign of a cold or sore throat, I start taking this and it goes away quickly. Tastes good too.
5.0 - great tasting, healthy product
High quality, great tasting, healthy product. I plan to keep this on hand for cold season. It's a great immune booster.
5.0 - Great for an immune boost!
My kids started preschool this year after being kept while I worked by my mother in law. They were not regularly around other children. Of course, we made it two days before my youngest had cold symptoms. I went to a local health food store and got this and the nighttime version. My daughter was back to herself in a day! My son started having the same symptoms and he took some as well, and is as good as new! I have been taking some and so has my husband and we have no symptoms! This stuff is a miracle worker! And it tastes great!
5.0 - Best for immune system and cold
This is our go to med when anyone in our house gets sick or is about to.. works great!
5.0 - It's good stuff!!
3yo loves this stuff! I mix it in her drink cups and sometimes food, as well, to avoid waste. It's a little syrupy. She does enjoy it by itself, though. It makes the typical preschool colds much easier on her because of the immune boost and much more short lived.
5.0 - Great tasting
You can't go wrong with Elderberry. It's good for whatever ails you, especially if your sinuses are bothering you, or you have a cold.
5.0 - Helps with airborne allergies
I use this product daily when people around me are experiencing cold/flu season. It also seems to help with my seasonal airborne allergies - I think it provides extra vitamin c in a food form but I am not certified in these areas. I just know it helps.
5.0 - Ward off colds, flu naturally
Black elderberry syrup is one of my go-to items when I feel like I’m coming down with a cold – scratchy throat – sniffle, etc. The quantity provided here is more than enough to get you through cold/flu season or to keep on hand when you need it.
5.0 - Love this product.
Good for colds and flu but I also used it when my daughter had molluscum contagiousum. I believe it helped clear up the virus faster than it would have if I didn't have it.
4.0 - Works wonders but horrible taste
I love the gaia elderberry syrup and my kids and I have used for several years. It works wonders and really helps boost our immune system during cold/flu season. I bought this Nighttime version by accident the last time I was at the store and just hate it. While it still works well, I can't stand the herbal taste of the "Nighttime" herbs. It is like herbal tea on steroids. My kids won't take it, so I'm stuck using the entire bottle by myself and had to go back to buy them the regular Gaia Elderberry syrup.
5.0 - This is a great naturopathic way to boost your immune system during cold ...
This is a great naturopathic way to boost your immune system during cold and flu season. It is easy to take and tastes great! Good for kids and adults.
5.0 - Can't live without
I love this product. As a first grade teacher, I'm surrounded by lots of germs. I take a tsb every night to keep myself from catching all the illnesses. Since I have been taking this, I have been able to avoid stomach bugs, flu, and colds.
5.0 - I'm sold.
I ordered this just a few days before my daughter (19 months) ended up with Influenza A despite having a flu shot. I gave her this along with the Tamiflu that was prescribed to her. Her symptoms drastically improved in just a couple of days. I don't know how much of her improvement was because of this and how much was due to the Tamiflu, but it sold me on keeping this as a household staple during cold and flu season!
5.0 - Miracle stuff! I just drank three times a day ...
Miracle stuff! I just drank three times a day and got no symptons of cold at all. My 3 years old son got no night cough anymore as well. I just placed another two bottles order immediately, and I'll order it again and again.
5.0 - They love it (but they are so used to it
I would never ever go through a flu season with out this liquid gold!!! Seriously. My kids take a 1/2 tsp every night for immune boosting. If they are starting a cold they get it 2x a day.
5.0 - Five Stars
Love and trust this brand. Helped me greatly during cold season! A must have.
5.0 - Trusted brand
Great trusted brand. A little pricey but convenient. Helps so much when taken properly. Natural cold and flu fighter. Tastes great too!
5.0 - Very Helpful for Nighttime Cough and Immune Boost
My children were hit with a serious cold/flu thanks to flu vaccinated grandparents "shedding". I know this was the source because I homeschool and my children don't go to daycare. My parents went to the doctor to get antibiotics but my children were given Black Elderberry Syrup, Black Elderberry NightTime Syrup, vitamins, tea (lemon, honey and a little salt) and a small spoonful of diced garlic and honey. My children recovered within two weeks (that's how nasty the bug was) my parents were sick for nearly a month with the cough lingering even longer.
5.0 - Try it!
A friend suggested Black Elderberry Syrup when I felt like a had a cold coming on. I still felt a little congested for a day or 2 but other than that, stayed healthy. I've continued to take a teaspoon a day as the people in my office & my kids have all been sick & (knock on wood) still stayed healthy. I've given it to my kids & it seems like, although they have been sick, never really had the full-on cold.
5.0 - Awesome stuff
I started taking this every day during the cold and flu season this year and I have yet to get sick with anything. I would always get at least a cold in the past years, haven't changed anything else but taking this syrup this year so I believe it is working!
4.0 - Seems to help with the cold sore virus
I go through periods when I get frequent cold sores. Valtrex works but gives me headaches. So the last time I felt the familiar evil tingle I decided to take some of this. By the afternoon, the tingle was gone and the cold sore never appeared. Obviously I need to do a few more trials, but I'm definitely intrigued! The taste is fine, it's a very concentrated grape/berry flavor that could be easily hidden in juice or a smoothie. I have a friend who swears by this for her kids in the winters so I'm eager to see what else it can do.
5.0 - This is the BEST Elderbery Syrup for Increasing Immunity and fighting off colds and flu
I have used store brand, name brand Sanbucol, Sambucus, and NOTHING compares to this.
5.0 - Works Great!
My toddler had a nasty cold and nothing was relieving her symptoms. Gaia Black Elderberry was recommended by a Whole Foods nutritionist to help her get some relief. It was amazing how fast it worked! Not only did it relieve her symptoms, it shortened the amount of time she was sick considerably. I now keep Gaia Elderberry Syrup stocked and on hand for whenever anyone in the house gets the sniffles. It tastes wonderful, like jam, so no one minds taking it.
5.0 - I rarely get cold/flu anymore, maybe once a year if that.
I absolutely love this! I take it once a week or whenever I remember to take it. It keeps the colds/flu away! I always recommend it to my friends/family. Everyone is coughing their lungs out, sickly and I'm just here with a smile on my face, healthy as can be.
5.0 - As close to a miracle cure for the common cold as I have ever found.
This seems to really boost the immune system if you use it in time.
5.0 - Works as intended
This helped my son continue functioning and get over a very bad cold quickly. He is also a child who has a hard time physically and mentally relaxing, and therefore an extremely hard time going to sleep. He can be dog-tired, yawning and want to go to sleep, and it can still take 2 hours for him to finally fall asleep.
5.0 - Immune system
I am a healthcare worker and have dealt with the flu for 30 + years now. This product is amazing. My 14 month old nephew tested positive for the flu this season. Fever over 100 and upper respiratory symptoms. His mother chose not to give him Tamiflu after reading the side effects. She used your product. He was fever free and back to playing and eating within 3 days. It is a thick syrup that almost reminds me of jam! Yum. When I feel like i may be catching cold or worse I take a dose just for prevention and must say i have yet to be sick.
5.0 - Used to be my favorite go to for flu and colds
I will say this used to be my favorite brand. They recently have made a change to it and I swear I think it's in my head but it just doesn't seem to work like the old kind did. The old one had 11 50 mg per one or two capsules and looked like it had Berry pulp inside this is some sort of freeze-dried? Stuff in the capsule and I went through a whole bottle and didn't get better. Usually I can take them for a couple days and it knocks out my flu for years I have sworn by this stuff and told everyone that will listen to get it and try it. I sure hope it's not the change in the method or the delivery of how it's stored in the capsule now but I can't figure out what else it could be? It's supposed to be extremely potent even though it looks to be less milk mg because it's a concentrated version It's supposed to actually be more milligrams than the previous? Got to say I'm discouraged. Not sure if it's all in my head but usually when I take it for a week it knocks out whatever I have and this time it did not. May have to look for a new product after this that's my go-to for sinus cold and flu super bummed.
5.0 - Amazing impact on our health!
We started taking this product to prevent flu, colds, etc., and wound up taking it every day. We have found that it has definitely boosted our immunity. Everyone we have recommended it to has also found it has absolutely made them feel better very quickly if they were just coming down with something. They were totally shocked at the quick response/improvement to their health! We swear by it!!! Wouldn't be without it in our house.

Worked very well in alleviating cold symptoms and shortening the length of sickness.
5.0 - great
Great taste. It is a little syrupy and hard to drink out of a medicine measuring cup, so I put it into a tea cup and add cold water to it. Children like it better this way and still get all the benefits. New staple in our house. The best tasting one we tried so far. Amazing fresh flavor and taste. Feels like someone just made it yesterday.
5.0 - I liked the product very much back before I discovered clove ...
It works very well in helping to fight a cold that's coming on. However, since I started taking two drops of pure, organic clove oil everyday, I have not been sick at all, even once, in spite of very frequently being around sick, young children in my work, as well as frequently sick family members. Therefore, my last bottle has been sitting in the refrigerator, unused, for a year. I liked the product very much back before I discovered clove oil, but I prefer to prevent viral infections rather than fight them off.
5.0 - Five Stars
Tates is pleasant and it has decreased the severity of a cold.
5.0 - Our immune system Buddy!
I have been using this supplement for almost 2 yes now and I am a true believer in black elderberry syrup. I first came across the benefits of this supplements when I was looking for a viral blocker and thru research I found out how black elderberry was used in the 90's to fight the flu epidemic in Panama so I started taking it and giving it to my children during flu season and I haven't stopped since then. I then started following a Holistic Pediatrician blog and he too recommends it for children who are fighting colds and flu or just to keep their immune system going strong. I personally use it as a daily immune system booster but I'm not a Dr, this is just what I do and it has worked. Do your research on black elderberry and when you are ready to buy it look no more, Gaia Herbs is one of the best supplemets manufacturers out there and it's also Organic where very few other ones are.

5.0 - Miracle syrup...avoid getting your snotty kids' illnesses!
This stuff works wonders! I've not gotten fully sick since I started using this and it either prevents colds altogether or shortens the duration. I've been telling everyone this is a miracle syrup. I'm a nanny working with sick snotty kids all the time, so take it from me!
5.0 - Must have for germ season
Great natural product to boost your immune system. I have kept many a cold and scratchy throat at bay by immediately using this product when I notice symptoms and it works every time. My kids LOVE the taste and would take it every day if I would let the them. My last shipment was damaged in route and I had no trouble contacting the company and getting my replacement order.
5.0 - Love this liquid Elderberry
This is a lifesaver when a cold is coming on! Liquid elderberry is my secret weapon!! Also, this tastes great. Not too sweet, like some of the other liquid elderberry syrups I have tried.
5.0 - It works awesome for my little one
I swear my 2 year old gets sick much less since I put her on this a year ago. She was coming down with a nasty cold once a week. I put her on this and she's maybe been sick 3x in the past year, and all 3x it's when I've been lax at giving her this (or when I'm traveling and my husband forgets). I'm going to keep buying it!
5.0 - Awesome Stuff especially while breastfeeding!
Arrived on time. Excellent stuff! Perfect to use while breastfeeding my daughter for a stuffy head cold.

This is the only effective brand of elderberry, others don't work. This product reduces the duration and severity of colds and flus.
4.0 - Seems to work, bad taste!
In my quest to find something to prevent my annual bout with the flu, I decided to try this syrup. First off, it tastes pretty bad. It's sour but not in a good way, with a kind of vomit aftertaste. But, what's a bad taste compared to the flu? Feeling myself getting a cold, I started taking this and I got better rather quickly, and symptoms were not as severe as usual. Whether it's truly the syrup or a placebo effect, I don't know, but honestly I don't really think it matters as long as I'm seeing results. I will continue taking it, in the hope I can escape my annual visitor this year.

4.0 - My kids don't like the taste
My kids don't like the taste. But well, if it's a good product, I'll still manage to make them take it. I've only have it for a week, so far it has helped my daughter who just caught a cold, to be much better the next day. We'll see how it goes.
5.0 - Great Immune Support
This product is a must-have during flu season. I use both the Gaia Elderberry syrup (sometimes) and the Gaia capsules when I'm traveling. I swear by Elderberry. I've been so exposed to colds and flu that I was just SURE I'd likely get sick. But this stuff is the best. If you even FEEL a slight tickle, starting taking elderberry syrup and it seems to work great on the chest. Stick with it 3-4 times per day and it seems to eliminate or reduce symptoms until your own immunes can take over and kick it. I like the syrup for actual symptoms and the capsules for an every other day alternative.
5.0 - Kids like the taste and it works too!
My kids love the taste of this stuff. We tried another brand and they won't take it, but this stuff they will. I've definitely seen improvement in their ability to keep colds at bay and at the first sign of a cold, if I give it to them, it definitely keeps it from getting worse. The only suggestion I could make about this product is that they make it available in a larger quantity as my two kids go through this stuff pretty quickly during cold season.
5.0 - Amazing!!
I love this product, my family and I take it at the first sign of an illness. It'll take your typical cold from 5-7 days down to 2 days. It is a miracle syrup!
5.0 - A Must-Have During the Flu Season
I've been taking this daily this winter and I must say I haven't gotten any colds thus far. When working an an open environment with many people ill with colds and flu, I have to say this product has contributed to strengthening my immune system. Thank goodness kids can take this as well. My daughter takes it daily as well. And must I say, no colds this year for her as well! I highly recommend taking this product. This is now a must-have every year in my home!
5.0 - helps kids immune system!!

4.0 - Good value, simple ingredient list, and actually works but the full dose causes stomach upset
I'm normally a skeptic about products like this, but this has really helped me this past cold/flu season. It is higher quality than other elderberry products I have tried and also seems to work better than others. I love the simple ingredient list, which is pretty hard to find in an elderberry product. It is only concentrated elderberry, concentrated acerola fruit, sugar cane juice, water, and lemon juice. Many other elderberry products have echinacea, more sugar, or other added ingredients. I keep it in the fridge, have a teaspoon a day as soon as I feel that throat tickle or the kids get a cold, and I either don't get sick at all or have fewer and less severe symptoms.
5.0 - Amazing!!
Love, Love, Love this product!!! The taste is outstanding compared to other brands and the form of Vitamin C Acerola is great too. My kids take it without any problems and actually ask for more!! We take it at the first sign of cold symptoms and it actually works!

After much research, I purchased this product and am so pleased that I've ordered another bottle. I have had bronchial asthma for a good part of my 71 years and simple colds for anyone else can put me in the hospital. This syrup is great and appears to be preventing things from becoming worse.
5.0 - Kept my colds at bay all winter
I don't pop vitamins all day or believe I can stop a cold with herbs. But I noticed this product smack in the middle of cold and flu season here in the Northeast and ordered it. The next day (seriously) I felt crappy and was sure I was getting sick. So I tried the elderberry syrup--and I admit I took a little more than the recommended dose. The next day, I felt fine but took it again just to be safe (regular dose this time). And that threatening cold never developed. I was 100 percent fine. Coincidence? Possibly. But I've used it a few more times, always wth the same result. I'm not saying It's a cure-all. But it sure helped keep me healthy this past winter.
5.0 - Excellent product
Like this product very much during winter cold & flu season as it seems to head off whatever one thinks they are coming down with. Tastes

4.0 - In the past, I have always found this effective ...
In the past, I have always found this effective during cold and flu season. It stopped the chronic sinusitis I used to have. Now I am very disturbed that the larger bottle of the syrup has disappeared and the general supply of the syrup has dwindled. Now there is tremendous price gouging going on for the syrup that is left. As a result those of us that have come to rely on this syrup to boost our immunity are left in the lurch. What is going on?
5.0 - Really helps!
Really helps sore throats and stopped my cold in it's tracks. I would recommend this to everyone during this flu season.

5.0 - Better than nyquil or dayquil
Truly rapid relief. Felt soreness in my throat and just after 1 dosage, my throat felt relief and the the cold did not progress. Bought this for the whole family. Better than nyquil or dayquil. Absolutely no side effects. Taste super yummy, like crushed sweet blueberries.
5.0 - A miracle cure!
I am so glad I decided to give this a try. I suffered with a cold and chest congestion for a week and a half, until this arrived in the mail. First dose--and I was cough-free for the night. Slept peacefully. I ordered the smaller size because Amazon's subscribe and save program makes it more affordable, though I admit it is not cheap to begin with. But it is definitely worth the price, and I intend to keep it on hand as a part of my permanent medicine kit.

5.0 - great product
I always look for natural remedies and methods to cure or prevent ailments. In the past I have made my own black elderberry syrup, but in my current location elderberries are not available. Or, I should say, I have had trouble buying them. This is a great alternative to making your own. My family has been healthy and avoided the colds and flu since taking elderberry syrup. Highly recommend!
4.0 - Good, Not Great
This is not what I would call a game-changer when sick, but whether its truly the homeopathic ability or a placebo effect, I have noticed it helps alleviate a cold sooner than other medicines I've taken. It certainly tastes better than other cold medicines, which is nice, but its a thick, sweet syrup. Took some getting used to. Luckily, my children were quite happy to take it for that reason alone!
5.0 - Awesome
Great size, reasonably priced & very concentrated so not as much needed. Whenever any of us get sick I start the sick person on 1 tsp every 2 hours. Usually knocks out cold/cough/fever/flu within 12 hours. I mix w/ juice or gatorade but can be taken alone as well.
5.0 - Works!!
Works so good if you have a cold coming on!
5.0 - Tastes very sweet and works great!!!!
I bought a "healthier" brand without as much sugar. I have found I do not even want to use it when I need it. I am back to my old favorite Gaia brand Elderberry. I don't mind the sugar at least I take it when needed. I found when I get the first sign of a cold or tingling throat I take this and in 2 years I have not had more than a minor cold. Even when the rest of the family (that refuse that weird stuff) is suffering and can't breathe I am only sniffing a little bit.
5.0 - This is a wonderful supplement during cold season
This is a wonderful supplement during cold season. Delicious and effective. Elderberry works as a shield to keep out viruses and colds. We depend on it every winter, and as a result have suffered far fewer sinus/chest infections than during years when we did not use it.
5.0 - HIGHLY recommend!!
This is the only syrup my 18 month old will take. It really does work to help his immune system! (Knock on wood) hasn't been sick once this cold/flu season. HIGHLY recommend!!
5.0 - No cold this winter!
I haven't been sick all winter, I guess my friend was absolutely right! I will be buying again! I tried other kinds, but this one is my favorite!
5.0 - Helped cut my cold in half
A few different people told me to try Elderberry Syrup to ward off colds, and I have to say I think it works! My whole family has had a really terrible cold and have not taken this, but I've taken 2 doses of this a day and my cold - which was still pretty bad - lasted half as long as usual. The syrup is quite thick but seems effective - anything to help keep me out of the doctor's office! Most people think this tastes great... I think it sort of tastes like marinara. But again, seems worth it to cut my symptoms in half. I'll keep taking it on a regular basis to keep my immune system up.
5.0 - EASY to use!
I LOVE the Gaia Herbs Black Elderberry Liquid! It's so easy to use, especially for younger kids who might not be able to swallow pills. While we don't take it daily, the second that anyone starts to feel icky, we start taking it immediately and very rarely does it turn into an actual cold or sickness! I would highly recommend taking the black elderberry liquid as an all natural alternative to some of those over the counter supplements that are mostly sugar and other bad for you ingredients.
5.0 - Amazing
I am convinced this works. Twice now I have gotten a bad cold. Within 24 hours of taking this stuff I feel so much better. My family also takes it and we've prevented the spread of germs in our household. The taste is a little bitter but way better than cough medicine.
5.0 - Amazing stuff
I'm a registered nurse, and often skeptic when it comes to homeopathic remedies. Everyone at work was coming down with flu-like symptoms and colds. I woke up with a horrible sore throat, and started taking a generous teaspoon of this stuff 2x/day. Three days later: sore throat is almost healed and NO nasal symptoms. This stuff literally stopped a nasty cold in its tracks. I made my husband take it as a preventative, as well. Truly works!!!
5.0 - Five Stars
All moms should busy during winter season. Helps minimize down time and prevents several colds.
5.0 - Best immunity booster!!
My whole family takes this, myself, my husband, and my 3 year old. Our naturopathic doc suggested we do this as an immunity booster and wow does it work. My son has had one cold this entire school year and he gets this every day!! It tastes so yummy. I am very upset that I just got notice it isn't on subscribe and save anymore, totally disappointed!! Gaia is the only brand we buy, on the box you can track where your herbs come from and their journey its pretty cool to support a company so dedicated to quality ingredients!!
5.0 - My favorite Elderberry brand---really works!
I love this syrup! I take it when I'm starting to feel sick and during my cold and I think it helps to shorten the length of my cold as well as reduces the severity of my symptoms. It does not make me feel drowsy, and I take it at any time of day. It tastes like sour blackberries and raspberries.
5.0 - must have
My family survives off of this. It makes the cold and flu season easier to deal with for all ages.
5.0 - so good!
Use to prevent colds & flu. So far, so good!
5.0 - Great virus prevention
I pop a few of these whenever I feel a cold coming on, go to bed, then take a few over the next few days whenever I feel the cold trying to come back. So far it has saved me from getting a full blown cold, which is great' since I normally catch everything going around and am down for days and days.
5.0 - Take it when you feel a cold coming on...
It's Gaia so I knew it'd be good. I take it when I feel a cold coming on and I believe it helps more than anything else I've tried. It's yummy, too!
5.0 - While everyone around us was dropping like flies, we remained healthy and never slowed down
I refuse to be without this stuff during cold and flu season. While everyone around us was dropping like flies, we remained healthy and never slowed down! It doesn't taste bad, either...very sweet...but there were no complaints from my sweet tooth kiddos!
4.0 - Love those old time remedies
For colds I use Cold-Eze to ward them off or keep them short and mild. If I get something else, Elderberry Syrup is the go-to preventative. I like the flavor and the results. I won’t use the drug companies’ remedies unless all else fails. In the long run they actually run your body down and leave you vulnerable to worse things.
5.0 - Very effective for us.
My kids haven't gotten sick since I started this. It took about a month and a half to get in their system. They both used to get these weird colds every 2 months and I can't even tell you the last time they've had one. If they seem to come down with something, it doesn't seem to attack them as hard and they're back to normal the next day or two. This is a nice product.
5.0 - Kids will actually want to take this
Taste good, seems to lessen colds. I feel it even helps ward off colds too
5.0 - I purchased this on the recommendation of a good friend after having two very bad colds in a ...
I purchased this on the recommendation of a good friend after having two very bad colds in a short period of time. So far I have stayed well with many sick around me. Seems everyone has had a cold or flu every where I've gone for the last few months!!
5.0 - Great for cold and flu season!
Our whole family takes this daily in the fall/winter/spring months. It works great to combat and lessen the time/severity of colds and flu. I just wish Amazon would have this on subscribe and save!
5.0 - I reiterate all the good things you see on other reviews
I reiterate all the good things you see on other reviews. This is miracle syrup when it comes to fighting cold and flue.
5.0 - Best preventive maintenance ever
I think this is magic in a bottle. I have used it at the onset of a cold and it helps within 24 hours. Even after the cold or virus has set in, this product helps it run its course faster than using other products. I have tried different brands, but swear by Gaia Herbs, as it is more concentrated than other brands. My whole family takes it and loves it - not the taste and thickness, but the results!
4.0 - Solid brand w/ research to back it up
I have used Gaia for many years -- my first experience was with their Elderberry which came in a different form, more like a dissolving tab. The syrup form is a bit more messy but tastes more potent or concentrated, almost like a tomato paste. I went a full winter without getting sick the last time I stuck to a daily dose of the elderberry, and since trying the syrup have not suffered too badly during this allergy season. Highly recommend for boosting immunity, especially in those hours when you feel on the verge of getting cold or flu.
4.0 - Baby likes flavor
My one year old has only had one cold so far and even though I gave her this every day, it still took 10 days to clear up. Not sure if it helped or not:/ Although her cousin was sick for over a month after attending the same kids party, so maybe it did. But the baby did take the doses without protest, so I guess it tastes good!
5.0 - The real deal.
Great product! Very similar to the expensive stuff from a naturopath. Tastes great and I notice an improvement in cold and flu symptoms when taking this.
5.0 - Truly works
I use this product all through the winter with both my children to keep their immune system strong and resistant to flu and cold viruses. This is a very good way to fight those germs and I use it even for myself if I feel like I am coming down with something. I would and have been recommending this to friends and family!
5.0 - It's a must have during cold and flu season!
This stuff works!
5.0 - Worth trying!
I've been using it for 2 months and haven't gotten sick! Husband and 3 year old have both had bad colds at different times that I haven't caught. I'm 32 weeks pregnant now and already had a cold in early Fall so I was ready to try anything to avoid getting sick. My 3 year old is willing to take the syrup when he's not sick if he sees me doing it. It tastes similar to blackberry syrup. I know a lot of other factors contribute to how likely a person is to get sick but it's nice to there's one more thing I can do to boost my immune system.
5.0 - Great in smoothies or just plain
This includes natural Vitamin C from Acerola cherries, contains no artificial flavors or colors, no preservatives, and no high fructose corn syrup. Immune support for the whole season. As soon I feel symptoms of a cold I take one teaspoon in the morning and one teaspoon in the evening. The next day I'm back to not feeling any symptoms. Great immune booster. The taste is a bit tart. I will put it in a smoothie or drink. I love this product and it is never not in my home. I will buy two at a time to have backup. Highly recommend this. It will keep you from making a trip to the doctors.
5.0 - ... so far I haven't had a cold yet- it's awesome!
I prefer using this to echinacea – so far I haven't had a cold yet- it's awesome!
5.0 - Awesome product. This helped me with Bronchitis last winter

4.0 - I use this when I feel like I'm about to get a cold
I use this when I feel like I'm about to get a cold, as soon as I take this the next day that cold feeling is gone.
5.0 - prevents and minimizes illnesses!
Our pediatrician recommended this as a preventative measure for my kids during cold/flu season, and it worked great! The most my kids got last winter was a mild cold, and this was after being exposed to the flu/colds in school. I told a friend who has been taking it since last year and said she was the only one in her office that did not get the flu (and she gets sick easily due to her asthma). Worth every penny!
5.0 - Keep on hand
This is great to have on hand to take at the first sign of a cold or flu.
4.0 - Pretty sure this is helping my immune system
My friend who is a naturopathic doctor told me that I should get this to help the immune system. I was telling her how sick my kids always are with colds and such, and she said if there was one thing to take the second you start feeling weak or, if you can, on a daily basis, it would be this syrup to help immune system naturally ward off basic illnesses. Well...we have been taking it for years. We don't take it daily simply because of the price, but as soon as the kids don't feel great I give them each a teaspoon of this a day for weeks. It seems to do the trick--we don't get too sick that often.
5.0 - good seller
bought this item based on other reviews to help build immune system during cold and flu season it works and taste good also
5.0 - Helpful cold and flu remedy and immune system booster
I had picked this up at Whole Foods initially when it was featured, I saw it and remembered hearing Dr. Oz on one of his shows had recommended elderberry as a remedy to help shorten colds and the flu. One evening I became congested and had other cold-like symptoms and worried I was in for a bout of being sick, so decided to try it. I woke up relieved of all symptoms, which I found amazing. I did some subsequent research and discovered it is even effective against H1N1. Good stuff!
5.0 - Best Elderberry On The Market!
If I could give this 10 stars, I would! Someone told me about elderberry being a natural remedy for the common cold. I started using this product about 5 years ago and cannot tell you how it’s changed our family’s lives during cold season. What was a normal 5-7 day span is now a 2-3 day. I use this religiously during cold season and the best is that I never have to go the “medicine” route like Mucinex or use any other non-homeopathic kids cold medicine. This works great; it’s the only way I’d go during cold season.
4.0 - Great for stubborn long problems
This stuff is really good for respiratory conditions. If you have a chronic bronchitis, or a long cold or flu that will not go away, definitely give this a try.
5.0 - Five Stars
Best supplement for keeping colds & flu away when taken regularly

5.0 - Miracle supplement
This was recommended to me by an anesthesiologist. It was by far the best advice I've ever received. Came down with a nasty cold recently and on day 2, I started taking this. By day 3 I was 70% better. This is an amazing product!!! My son soon complained of a sore throat. I gave him 2 doses within a 12 hour time frame(mixed it with some yogurt). He woke up symptom free and the cold never developed! Miracle product!
5.0 - This not only tastes good; but really works
This not only tastes good; but really works. It typically knocks out cold symptoms in 2-3 days for me. It may seem a bit pricey; but it's worth every penny!
5.0 - i went in because looking something natural for my daughter horrible cough! I found this
I came across this syrup at my local lassens store, i went in because looking something natural for my daughter horrible cough! I found this, &nd it has worked wonders!! I give this to my 3 year old daughter everyday! I give her 1/2 once a day, and when she has a cold i give it to her twice a day! Very good syrup! And all natural!
5.0 - Five Stars
Excellent product! A must have during cough and cold season
5.0 - Great cold/flu remedy.
I take this regularly in the winter months and take more of it when someone in the house is ill or I feel ill. My kids will take this right off the spoon since it's based in honey. Great cold/flu remedy. Our home is never without it.
4.0 - Helping cut the duration of my cold
Heard about this from a coworker that swears by it to help boost the immune system during cold and flu season especially. I purchased it because I am sick very often as a result from teaching two year olds so I'm constantly exposed to germs. So I'm not going to lie but the taste is very bitter to me, some people say they like it. I myself am not a fan. I had the idea to mix it into a glass of apple juice to mask the taste which seems to help with the taste quite a bit. So I've only been on this for a month and did have a cold but I feel that the duration of the cold was a lot shorter than it usually is.
5.0 - I felt a bad cold coming when meeting a friend at a healthfood ...
I felt a bad cold coming when meeting a friend at a healthfood store for lunch. They don't carry my usual brand of black elderberry syrup, so I tried this mostly because I felt too lousy to drive to another store. Wow. Within just a day or so I was back to my old self, and the cold never really hit past that first day. I should add that I took it 4x a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and bedtime) instead of the 2x day the label recommended. I've had decent luck in the past with 
5.0 - Perfect immunity boost!
I love this! Whenever I or my kids start coming down with an illness, I immediately have us start taking Black Elderberry Syrup. The syrup is sweet, and the children love taking it. I've noticed that when we do take it, we recover faster from our colds. It gives the perfect immunity boost that we need.
5.0 - Miracle worker!
I can't believe this syrup!! It's too good to be true. My four year old has been constantly down with cold and cough and I tried honey, cough syrups but in vain. I wanted to boost her immunity so that she doesn't catch it in the first place. That's when I came across Gaia kids elderberry syrup. After reading so many positive reviews I thought I'll give it a try. My kid was suffering from continuous night cough since four days and the night I have her the syrup the cough was gone. I continued giving her half tsp twice daily for two more days and the cough and cold completely subsided. I now continue to give her half tsp once daily to boost her immunity.
5.0 - Trying our best to boost his immune system
I can't quite speak to the efficacy of this yet since we started to give it to my toddler everyday as a preventative about two weeks ago. He has RAD (toddler asthma) and his trigger is a cold. Trying our best to boost his immune system. I did a lot of research on elderberry and this is the only brand I feel comfortable giving. It really is only elderberry and honey. Other brands include echinachea and while I am sure it works, I just don't want to give those mixtures to a toddler. He takes it in his morning almond milk like a champ so only time will tell if it works but from these reviews and others across the web, I am pretty confident and excited about it.
5.0 - you are better off with the Organic Gaia brand
Our lives are vastly improved by using this product. The sugars at 4 grams per tsp are less than in any other Elderberry product and using less tsp - two a day- with GAIA compared to 14 grams per tsp and taking 8 tsp a day with the other product, you are better off with the Organic Gaia brand. We have used this product for the past year... and it was the only thing to knock out a bad case of bronchitis for me. This summer we both had colds and using it cuts the length of the cold down for each of us to four days or less and the cold was less severe. If you google this product you will find it also helps with flus and other viruses. Maintenance dose is 1 tsp a day if you are in need and then if you do catch something it ups to a second tsp. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
5.0 - Helps keep my toddler healthy.
My toddler (3 year old) son used to get colds all the time after starting daycare. After taking Gaia Herbs and taking other precautions, he's been nearly cold free for about 2 months now :)
5.0 - Great product
I swear by this stuff during cold and flu season. It also helps me to sleep. And it tastes really good, almost like a dessert topping! It does come out very thick after it is refrigerated. I have experienced zero negative side effects, although if you took it during the day time, it might make you drowsy. I will continue to buy it as long as Gaia keeps making it.

5.0 - Love this product!
Has already helped me avoid one cold, and shortened the duration of one I wasn't able to completely avoid. I normally get colds that last for 2-3 weeks with a horrible barking cough, but taking this has made a huge difference. I had a cold this past week, took this twice a day, and it was basically gone within 5 days with no chronic cough. I've also been giving it to my daughter to support her immune health, and to help support us both through this cold/flu season.
5.0 - Great product
I used this during my pregnancy when I would catch little colds and this would knock it right out. Safe to use during pregnancy and very effective. I will continue to use this over those other brands filled with all those garbage ingredients
5.0 - Must have to keep illnesses away!
We prefer the gummies. This stuff taste pretty awful. I'm sure it works the same. It's a must have during cold/flu season.
5.0 - Great item in your holistic medicine cabinet
My family takes this when anyone is starting to feel a bit under the weather with a cold, sore throat or the like. We've found it either stops it in its tracks or significantly shortens the infection period. I keep this on hand all year long.
5.0 - Great Natural Remedy !
A friend of mine recommended Black Elderberry when I thought I was coming down with a cold. I took a couple of tablespoons and most of my symptoms were gone overnight. After my great results I told my sister who gave some to my nieces & nephews and they too had great results. I have now been using Gaia Black Elderberry for the past two years - along with healthy eating and exercise I have been cold free :)

I have used this product for years and noramlly buy from a local vendor but they did not have any on the shelf. This is a good buy for the size bottle you get. I use it to build my immune system for the winter months and if I feel a cold or something coming on I take 3 tsp a day and it seems to help hold it off. Love the product.
5.0 - I recommend this to all my family and friends if they ...
Black elderberry from GAIA is the real thing. I recommend this to all my family and friends if they are getting sick. I take it every time I feel like I am "coming down with something" and within 24 hours I am completely better! It is great to take daily to keep from getting sick during the winter when lots of viruses and such are going around. I even opened up the capsule and poured into some food for my 4 year old when she was sick with a bad cold and she felt better that same day. I 100% stand behind this product from GAIA. It's also good for those with allergies and can help minimize symptoms if taken daily or reduce the need for allergy medicine.
5.0 - BEST black elderberry I've found!
This stuff is the real deal. Better than sambucus. I am currently putting in my smoothie daily for inflammation. It has also knocked out several colds and viruses over the years. Always keep a bottle on hand!!

We have tried Sambucol, Gaia, and Nature's Way. My daughter prefers the taste of Gaia to the others, and I notice an improvement in any cold symptoms immediately with Gaia. Even though Sambucol is the only one clinically tested, Gaia has the same concentration and it is organic. The proof is in the pudding....Gaia works.

5.0 - Excellent assist to our immune system!
The Gaia Herbs Black Elderbery Syrup, I feel, is one of the best available; I know because I've purchased a lot of company's black elderberry syrups over the years. Made in Italy, its quality and good energy are apparent immediately upon opening the bottle. I take it by mixing it with herbs I use for liver detox along with spring or filtered water. I know it helps to knock out colds or other issues before they can get a hold on me.
5.0 - Helps with keeping my kids healthy during cold/flu season!!
love this!! My daughter started taking this almost daily in February 2018 at about 18 months old, about 22lbs. we discussed using it with our pediatrician before hand and received their blessing. I would talk with your child's doctor before administering. My daughter goes to day care full time and was just always getting upper respiratory colds. we started giving this to her almost daily and it worked so well!! i was so shocked!! Shes been sick with colds/random virsus maybe twice since february. Worked great during cold/flu season! if she got a cold, it was for a day or two and then she was fine! She has had other viruses (HFM and roseolla, but i dont think really anything can protect kids from those). now that its summer we haven't been giving it to her, but plan to once fall/winter comes. it is VERY sweet and my daughter wouldn't take it directly, so we ended up putting it in her milk. didnt really impact the taste of the milk though, so thats worked for us. If you kiddos are constantly sick with colds/viruses, try this!! (after talking to your doctor ;) ), it worked really really well! I wish i knew about it sooner!!
5.0 - love it
Love this stuff. Give it my kids every day in the winter. I feel like it's helped them fight off colds that otherwise they would have gotten.

5.0 - This stuff is amazing!
This is concentrated elderberry syrup and well worth the cost. It helps boost your immune system in general. However, we take this mainly in the winter months when it's cold/flu season. We take it as a preventative and the up the dose when we feel something coming on, or are in the midst of it.

5.0 - One of my favorite cold and flu remedies
We use this anytime we get sick, and I really believe it helps! I couldn't be without it.
5.0 - Don't think twice, get it!
For those of you comparing prices of elderberry syrup, you get what you pay for. This product is super condensed so you only need a small dose. The nature's way syrup is watered down, so my family went through a whole bottle in a week! Gaia herb products are very high quality and this stuff is potent! It significantly shortens the length of our colds and I believe it protects the viruses from spreading. Fall and winter we take it often but when a cold strikes we take this syrup a few times a day. We also drink warm tea with raw honey and raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar. This stuff works great and I highly recommend it!
5.0 - Seems to work as a preventative
While taking this, I did seem to have less problems with my allergies and with colds. Everyone was passing a nasty bug around at work and I for once didn't get it! It tastes great and the only complaint I have would be that it seems expensive.

5.0 - Very good!
I am very satisfied with this product. I have used the syrup either straight or mixed. I have taken a teaspoonful straight and it tastes pretty good and not too sweet. I have mixed a teaspoonful with 8 to 12 oz Perrier carbonated water for a kind of healthy soda (non sugary, more like elderberry essence soda water) with a very nice deep purple color due to the concentrated syrup. I cannot speak much to its use as a cough syrup/suppressant or for cold prevention since it is not currently the cold & flu season. It may boost the immune system since I have not gotten sick since I started using this product about 2 to 3x week for a month and also I have not really been affected by allergies during spring pollen season.

I just purchased these Gaia Herbs Black Eldenbury Liquid Phyto Capsules by Gaia Herbs. My kids are always trying to get me to take these when I am under the weather. Well last week I felt some type of cold or virus coming on. I purchased these and started taking one in the morning and one in the night. This seriously knocked it right out and I only was mildly sick for a couple of days. Clinical studies proved that this can help shorten viruses in the bloodstream.

This helps us get better a LOT quicker than before we used it. Moreso for me than my husband. I will be better in 4-5 days from a cold, just about completely over it. He will take longer but has sinus issues. I ordered one in Jan. and went to use it in Oct and it was expired. Grrrr. Wasted $20.
5.0 - Sometimes you need that extra help in sleeping when you are beating back a cold
I love the regular Gaia Elderberry Syrup, but there are occasions when this version, with its gentle natural sleep aids added, is the perfect choice. Thanks Gaia!
5.0 - Delicious and effective immune booster!
This is a great item to have in your remedy cupboard, if you don't already use it on a daily basis to boost your immune response during the winter months. Elderberry has been researched in Europe and Israel, and proven to be effective in helping fight a cold or flu and shorten the duration of the illness. The syrup is very flavorful and pleasantly sweet. It contains a small amount of sugar, but not corn syrup. If you don't want to take it by the spoonful directly, it is delicious mixed with a half cup of cold water. Or, it is very soothing mixed with a half a cup of hot water. I've tried other brands, and Gaia is very fresh tasting, and works as well as the brand that has been on the market for years. It's wonderful when a simple, natural remedy actually works!

This product stops viruses from multiplying. It’s extremely helpful for cold sores. You may need to take it right away and sometimes take 2 pills at a time multiple times a day - but it works! Also works for other cold and flu viruses and is much stronger than elderberry syrup.
5.0 - A miracle cure!
I am so glad I decided to give this a try. I suffered with a cold and chest congestion for a week and a half, until this arrived in the mail. First dose--and I was cough-free for the night. Slept peacefully. I ordered the smaller size because Amazon's subscribe and save program makes it more affordable, though I admit it is not cheap to begin with. But it is definitely worth the price, and I intend to keep it on hand as a part of my permanent medicine kit.
5.0 - Good supplement for kids
I buy this for my grandchildren (2 and 5). They love the flavor, it's organic, not too sweet, and I think it boosts their immune system in the cold winter months.
