Bottom Line

7) Our Bottom Line

Considering the researches made on the ingredients, Sambu Guard should work and accomplish its goal in fortifying the immune system, however there are not so many customer testimonials available so we are not sure that they really work towards helping people or not. There are several alternatives, but whether they are better or not is yours to decide, since every product differs from another in one way or another and you might be allergic to a specific ingredient and benefit greatly from another one, due to the fact that every individual is unique. It is recommended that you consult your healthcare practitioner before starting to take these supplements and stop taking them as soon as you get any adverse reaction from it.

Noticed some headaches at the start but they are gone, not sure if it was because of the product or just a natural reaction of my body to certain ingredients, however, they are gone now and everything is fine.


All the warnings related to this product are meaningless, there are no side effects. Works great.


I love sambu Gaurd. It has saved me many times when I felt like my immune system was low and I was catching something. I stay well when I take it while everyone around seems to get sick.


Snake oil, placibo effect.
Knowing herbal medicines are usually nonsense I drank a whole 175ml bottle. After trying some at my mothers. This is simply elderberry juice, literally.
Dont buy unless you want to make a cocktail.


I do highly recommend this vitamins. I have been used it to build up my immune system. I never had a side effect.


Awesome product. I have a dayhome, so frequently the kids I care for come down with a cold or flu. This keeps my own kids and family from catching whatever bug is going around. It has worked everytime! I love it and highly recommend it.
