Q: Should I take these chewable tablets daily?
A: Elderberry is known to support the immune system, but it is also known for its antioxidant properties. You can take these chewable tablets to support immune function, but the health benefits of these Elderberry tablets support overall wellness, so you can also take them as part of your daily wellness routine.
Q: Can I take these Elderberry Chewable Tablets if I have an autoimmune disease?
A: Since we don’t know the finer details of your health, we can’t say if it is safe for you to take or not. As Elderberries can support immune function, it may not be safe for individuals with autoimmune disorders, those taking medication to decrease immune activity, or those for whom immune activity may be of concern. We highly recommend you consult with your physician or healthcare professional about whether or not Elderberry is safe for you to take, and what the appropriate dosage may be.
Q: What is the elderberry content in this Elderberry Tablet?

Q: Can you explain the amount of elderberry in this product?
Since there is no specified Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) or established Daily Value (DV) for Elderberries, you will find that different Elderberry supplements on the market vary greatly in their recommended doses. Our products’ recommended serving size was determined with general health and wellness in mind, as well as the ability to adjust the dose for your needs.
MaryRuth’s has multiple Elderberry products available: 1 liquid version, with a dropper pipette for ease of use, as well as chewable tablets. Additionally, some of our other products have Elderberry included in the formula, such as our Strawberry or Fruit Punch Liquid Morning Multivitamin Essentials+.
Of the liquids, the 2 oz Elderberry Drops are more highly concentrated with 250 mg per serving and the 1 ox Elderberry Drops have 150 mg per serving. We know that some people like using pipettes/droppers because it allows them to increase or decrease their dose as needed (for example, increase the dose for intensive use, or decrease the dose for smaller children). Our Elderberry Chewable Tablets contain 20 mg Vitamin C and 100 mg Elderberry per serving.
As there is not a recommended Daily Value for the Elderberry in this product, we advise speaking with your doctor or healthcare professional to help you decide what best fits your health needs.
