Keeping Our Immune System Tip Top This Winter With Sambucol


Sambucol is a great tasting food supplement packed with Black Elderberries.
Black elderberries contain naturally occurring flavonoids. Sambucol Immuno Forte also contains Vitamin C and Zinc, which are well known for their ability to support the immune system.
Sambucol is made from Black Elderberries which have twice the natural antioxidant capacity of blueberries and more than 50% the overall antioxidant capability of cranberries.
Antioxidants strengthen the immune system by helping neutralise the harmful effect of free radicals.


We were recently sent some Sambucol kids and extra defence to try out.
My boys are always getting one bug or another, so I'm always trying to keep them as healthy as possibly by making sure they eat right and stay active.

Rupert has to take vitamins daily as he is such a poor eater.
Ru really isn't a massive fan of his usual vitamins and puts up a fight when its time for him to have them and the twins will run a mile when I ask them to try some, but when it came to taking their new Sambucol they lined up willingly.

The literally jumped for joy when we were sent an extra bottle, as they had finished the first bottle within a week!

I can see Sambucol being well worth the money and making its way on to our weekly shopping list!

They may have stopped some of the pain but have ruined his insides and if someone is going to get sick, it's going to be him.

So anything that's going to offer him some extra defence against bugs this winter is always a bonus.

Sambucol extra defence tastes nice and isn't a chore to take.
Taking Sambucol has become part of our morning routine, we all have our shot one after the other and then are ready for what the day is going to bring!


The immune system is designed to defend the body and fight infections. Some people’s immune systems function better due to diet, lifestyle choices or genetics, and some people will be more susceptible to infections than others. Poor dietary choices such as a diet low in fresh fruit and vegetables (rich sources of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants), and high in sugar and processed foods, can negatively impact the immune system.
A lack of exercise and a stressful lifestyle can also play a role in a lowered immune system.
Keeping your immune system strong is important throughout the year. Nobody likes to feel under the weather.

Do your family take any immune boosting vitamins?
If so have you seen any benefits from them?

On The Go With Mamia

Ru may not eat properly at meal times, but give him a rice cake when out at the park and he will quite happily gobble them up.


Aldi's Mamia’s award-winning 100% organic  baby & toddler food range is perfect for on the go!
The baby food pouches are perfect for on the go feeding, when Ru was a baby we used them quite a bit on outing's.
Be it to the farm or just at the local soft play.

As Ru is a bit passed the baby food stage I have passed the pouches and fruit pots on to a neighbour who has a 14 month old.


The rice cakes go in our changing bag and are just perfect for that pick me up after running riot around the park.

Ru's a big fan of the juice and loves pouring it himself into his cup.
Whilst at the park, he made me find a table where he could set up his cup and juice.
(by which point my phone had died I and I couldn't snap a picture.)


Aldi Mamia’s award-winning 100% organic baby food range starts at just 59p
With it being organic you know you're not filling you baby with rubbish!
