BEE Healthy This Season {Zarbee’s All-Natural Cough Syrup #REVIEW}

Winter is here. The holidays are right around the corner. Everyone is gearing up for family gatherings, seeing loved ones, friends, and spending time together. I LOVE this time of year. I am so looking forward to the holidays because I get to see family that I usually only see this time of year. The only thing that I don’t like… is everyone spreading germs to each other. Yep. It’s going around. It seems like everyone I know has had something hit their house…myself included. Thankfully it has only been me and not Peanut or the hubbs that has been icky.

Getting sick is the pits. Having you little one(s) sick is even worse. There is nothing harder than watching your kiddos suffer and not being able to help them feel better. We were recently given this awesome cough syrup to try from Zarbees. Created by pediatrician Dr. Zak Zarbock, (with the help of his four boys), he too struggled with not being able to help his kiddos and young patients feel better when sick. And in 2007, when the FDA ruled traditional cough syrups unsafe for kids under age 4, he was left with even less options. So he decided to take matters into his own hands. Here are some words straight from the Dr! As a pediatrician and founder of Zarbee’s, I am thrilled that parents are learning more about safe and natural cough remedies for their families and that you’ve chosen Zarbee’s as your answer for bringing comfort into your home during those rough moments.

when the U.S. Food & Drug Administration ruled that children’s cough syrups were unsafe for kids under the age of four, I experienced first-hand the frustration that many of my patients also expressed. As a father of four boys, my wife and I would do anything to make our children feel better in their time of need, but (in the past) struggled with the available options for cold medicine. This frustration over not being able to offer relief to my boys and my young patients (and their parents) turned into passion to find an answer. I discovered a compelling clinical trial showing dark honey was effective at calming coughs and sore throats in children and young adults. With the help of my test subjects (aka our four sons), I was able to create a great tasting, all-natural, vitamin-enhanced, safe and very effective product, Zarbee’s All Natural Cough Syrup, specifically designed to keep mothers from going insane!

I love that this syrup is all natural. As a mother, I try to limit the amount of medicine that goes into my little Peanut, and it puts my mind at ease knowing all the ingredients are completely all natural. I’m looking at the ingredients right now and I love that there are only a handful, including a blend of dark honeys, water, vitamin C, natural flavors, malic acid (a natural fruit acid to boost immunity), zinc gluconate, and a plant extract to preserve freshness. That’s it. There are formulas for kids 12 months + as well as a formula for kids over 12 years and adults as well as a night time formula too!

Here are some pointers from Dr. Zarbock on how to reduce the chance of getting sick this season:

Be sure to wash your hands regularly, for at least 15 seconds, using soap and water. This includes getting in between your fingers, on top of your knuckles, and under your nail bed. The Centers for Disease Control recommend singing “Happy Birthday” twice through for an effective wash. If your home is dry, a humidifier or the regular use of nasal saline sprays may be helpful Try to avoid touching your own face-the gateway for viruses and bacteria-whenever possible. Your hands contain millions of germs so the last thing you want to do is transfer them to your face. If you do get sick, rely on all natural products that contain ingredients proven to be effective, such as Zarbee’s all natural cough products.

I was fortunate and didn’t have a cough with my little round of being under the weather, but I am sure ready for whatever the season brings. My hubby gets notoriously bad coughs when he gets sick, so I will be giving this to him if he is unlucky enough to get struck! I also love that since it is all natural and drug free, it is safe for pregnant and nursing women. FINALLY!! Something you can actually take when you are pregnant! What a great thing this is to have!! And I happen to be pregnant, so being able to have this in my arsenal is super awesome in my book!! This cough syrup is REAL Mom Recommended!
