In 2007, cough syrups for young children were pulled off the market due to overdoses, so I couldn't use a bottled remedy. In our case, this was actually okay, as I usually treat coughs with local honey but this time honey wasn't enough.
I'd heard about Zarbees cough syrup from my mom who is a nurse. She gave me some samples from her office last year but we hadn't tried any since then. When a package of Zarbees cough remedies arrived in the mail for me to review, it honestly came at the perfect time.
Zarbees has a mix of dark honeys (including buckwheat) plus vitamin C and zinc in their formula. It's all natural with no artificial preservatives or dyes and is gluten free, so it's perfectly safe even for the littlest ones. They also have adult daytime and nighttime cough syrup and I feel so much better having those around rather than having to take the artificial medicated stuff in other cough syrups.
You can find Zarbees products at Target, CVS, Walgreens and many other retail stores, usually next to the traditional cough syrups. You can also order online with free shipping!
The first all-natural, safe and effective cough syrup for children 12 months and older. It even tastes good too! Since the original conception of Zarbee’s Cough Syrup we have provided doctors with over 3 million samples that have helped parents across the nation calm the coughs and relieve the pain of their kids’ sore throats. Now Zarbee’s is recommended by nearly 40,000 physicians…and still counting.I'm so very thankful I found Zarbees for my whole family and I'm most definitely keeping it on hand for future coughs (because I'm sure there will be many!). This is just one of our steps to treating our family naturally and it's a good one I think!
