Feeling like you’re getting a cold?
Recently, I started getting sick on a Friday night (gee thanks, what a way to start the weekend). 😩 I was telling a friend about it, and the next morning she dropped off Sambucol Homeopathic Cold & Flu Relief as well as Boiron Oscillococcinum and said, “here, take these medicines together and get better” …and so I did.
I followed the instructions and the very next day I was already starting to feel better and my massive headache was gone! I had never heard of either of these products before so I started googling (I probably should have done this prior to taking them but I’m a risk-taker 🤪).
I found countless 5-star reviews for both of these products, and was surprised at how well this combo seemed to work for others, too.
What exactly is Sambucol Cold & Flu Relief made of?
Sambucol is homeopathic and made from Black Elderberry and Zinc, and it is safe for the entire family. It’s non-drowsy, non-habit forming, and there are no known drug interactions. The unique homeopathic formula helps to boost your immune system to help fight off a nasty cold.
I especially like that Sambucol is available in quick dissolve tablets, gummies, syrup, regular tablets, and lozenges—the quick dissolve tablets have a great taste so even the kiddos won’t complain.
Elderberry is high in vitamin c and dietary fiber that your body needs. It’s rich in anthocyanins which has anti-inflammatory effects.
What exactly is Oscillo…whaaaaat?
Oscillococcinum is also homeopathic, non-drowsy, and works with your body to reduce the duration and severity of flu symptoms. For best results, it’s best to take when you first start feeling sick to temporarily relieve body-aches, headache, fever, chills, and fatigue.
Hey, I’m down for that when I’m starting to feel crummy! 🙋🏻♀️
Inside the Oscillococcinum box, you’ll find little cylinders that have individual doses of the quick-dissolving pellets. Plus – just like Sambucol, there’s no yucky flavor and kiddos as young as 2 years old can take Oscillococcinum.
On the fence? Check out these Amazon reviews…
“I have been trying the different homeopathic cold/flu medicines, and just like the other OTC drugs, they are not always effective. However, these little pellets in a capsule are so effective at cutting the flu down so instead of a pouncing tiger, you only have to contend with a whimpering chihuahua.”
“WOW! This is a miracle drug! I was coming down with the flu and to make matters worse I was on a trip to see family. I thought I would have to stay in a hotel until my sister-in-law gave me this stuff. She handed me 3 vials, I emptied one on my tongue and she said to use another before bed and one tomorrow and you will be fine. She was right. I slept all night without coughing and my fever was gone by morning, and I felt like a new person. It was unbelievable. When I arrived home, I placed my order with Amazon and will never be without this stuff again.”
“I can’t believe how fast this worked on my four-year-old son, uncontrollable coughing and congestion one day, and the next morning completely cleared up.”
I’m obviously not a doctor and the advice and opinions here are my own. I also want to disclose this is not a sponsored post. I was honestly just so excited after experiencing the relief I got from taking these!
As with any new medicine, be sure to check with your doctor prior to taking it.
