Excellent!This is THE BEST elderberry zinc lozenges I've ever tried! I've tried a few from other brands that left an aftertaste which I dislike. This one does not have an aftertaste and has a lovely taste! Light elderberry flavor with a hint of sweetness. A bonus benefit has been the decrease in canker sore growth! I am prone to getting canker sores and when I do get them, they take a long time to heal but but when I ate this 3x a day (I really like the taste lol), I noticed that they helped speed the healing process. So I am sold on effectiveness! I purchased this size first and then bought the larger package because it's worth it!
The berry-flavored candies contain zinc and are intended to relieve a sore throat, but dry out the mouth very quickly, which causes a dry cough. The size of the package is relatively reasonable for the price, the advantage is that they are gluten-free and one candy can stay in the mouth for an hour until it runs out.
If you are looking for the best throat lozenges, then you will find it advantageous to choose the ones that do not contain sugar. These lozenges have a pleasant, light elderberry flavour and are composed entirely of natural ingredients. If you have a sore throat, you can dissolve 3-6 of them per day. Additionally, the zinc included in the composition can help you cope with the initial signs of a cold.
They're great when you have a sore throat, but I also use them regularly to help boost my immune system. This size is often out of stock so when I see it come back I make sure to boost my supply. If you're not used to zinc there is an after-taste. But not for long and the elderberry is quite yummy -- as well as adding to the effectiveness.
These surprised me. I was expecting something like a cough drop to soothe a sore throat, or quiet a nasty cough. It really isn’t. They don’t have any menthol in them, so there’s no cooling sensation. At first I was really disappointed. But then, after sucking on one for a while, I noticed that I actually began to feel better. I didn’t feel like I needed that soothing menthol feel on my throat. It’s like, instead of using a band-aid, I actually took care of the source of the problem. Score for elderberry and zinc! I believe too, that if you suck on one under your tongue as best you can, the ingredients will be absorbed directly into the blood stream and you will have streamlined the effect. I will definitely be buying these again and keeping my medicine cupboard stocked!
I have been using these lozenges for almost 20 years now. They have stayed consistantly awesome through the years. They have warded off many colds and flus. VERY EFFECTIVE. I have not been able to get these in Canada for years, but had managed to buy them from trips to the US. Since Covid, I have bought them solely from iHerb. What a wonderful company!
I love these lozenges during the winter when my sinuses are causing my throat to be scratchy and irritated. I can sleep with these pressed to the roof of my mouth and they sooth my throat enough to stop any coughing that keeps me awake. The taste is pleasant and not overly sweet or sugary like other big name brands. They also help boost my immune system when I feel a head cold or sinus infection on the way. One or two days of one lozenge every two hours knocks it right out. Great product!
