Where do we normally get this product from?
The European elder is a tree native to Europe and parts of Africa and Asia. It also grows in the United States. When ripe, elderberries are a rich, dark purple color and should be cooked before eating. Vitamin C is found in citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, grapefruit, limes, tomatoes, bell peppers, and strawberries. Zinc is found in beef, poultry, and shellfish.
Who might need to take this product?
Kids who don’t eat a lot of fruits and veggies may not be getting enough vitamin C. Also, any kids who prefer a plant-based diet may not get enough zinc, as plant-based foods provide less zinc than animal-based foods.
Suggested Use: Children ages 4–13 years: Chew 1 gummy daily. Children ages 14–18 years: Chew 1 gummy twice daily.
