Sambucol TM or Elderberry (Sambucus nigra). Is there any cause for concern, especially giving this to children? The product information doesn't mention dosages for school age children.
We take it at the first sign of colds and it seems to work (or possibly it's a placebo effect). Either way, I'd love to hear your advice about whether it could be possibly harmful to the liver and why (or if) it's proven to help with colds.
Elderberry juice is defiantly toxic I once drank a bottle of homemade elderberry wine that a customer gave me and I was ill for two days.

This results in toxicity due the coingestion of hydrocyanic acid, ambucine and/or cyanogenic glycosides.
Cyanide is rapidly removed from the body
