Have you heard about Zarbee’s Natural medicine line? If you haven’t, please keep on reading:
“In 2007, 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………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! As we go forward, Zarbee’s will continue to work on offering the best natural drug-free cough remedies available. Our goal is to get your family back to school (or work), outside to play and to your activities as fast as possible.”- Zarbee’s Website – Our Story
Like the Founder, Zac Zarbock, I have four young children. After finding out about the unsafe ingredients found in cough medicines, I was pulling my hair out trying to find something that not only was effective, but safe for my my young kids. When I received the opportunity to review their product line, I was excited. I had received the following:
Zarbee’s Naturals Children’s Cough Syrup – Grape
Zarbee’s Natural’s Adult Nighttime Drink
Zarbee’s Naturals Sleep Adult Strength
Zarbee’s Naturals Children’s Nighttime Syrup (Grape)
Zarbee’s Seasonal Relief
These products couldn’t have come at a better time. My kids started to cough and their noses were running (…and no, we didn’t have to go catch them – if you catch my joke). The cough medicine was safe enough for my 3 year old to use, which was so nice. My kids didn’t particularly like the taste of them, but they wanted relief…and to be honest, it’s a huge plus if my kids don’t fully enjoy the taste. I’ve had many instances, where the medicine tasted like candy, and my kids would ask for medicine all the time. At least I don’t have to worry about one of them accidentally drinking it, because it’s so delicious tasting. Many nights, they were waking themselves up coughing. The Zarbee’s Children’s Nighttime Syrup allowed them to sleep through the night without coughing….not to mention, allowing me to get more sleep. Makes me a happy Momma when my kids wake up refreshed.
As far as the seasonal relief…my allergies act up so much when the seasons change. I often wake up, sneezing several times. It’s horrible. I don’t feel like myself when that occurs. After taking one pill of the Seasonal Relief, I start to feel better within the first 30 minutes. I’m able to breathe!! I’m a stay at home mom, so my attention is needed all day. The Seasonal Relief allows me to continue on with my day and get the things done that is needed of me. The instructions say that you take a pill every 8 hours, but I have only had to use one each day to take care of my symptoms. Love this product!
If you have a hard time sleeping, check out the Naturals Sleeping Aid from Zarbees. They’re chewable! The instructions say that it will take about 30 minutes to an hour to kick in. I took two and it knocked me out within 20 minutes. I got a great sleep that night. The real test was this: with my kids coughing and needing me during the middle of the night, I was extremely afraid that the sleep aid would make me super groggy, to the point where I wouldn’t be able to function when the kids needed me the most. When they woke up and asked for help, I was able to wake up without an issue to take care of them. I was honestly shocked how well it worked on me. Most sleeping aids I’ve taken have had major groggy side-effects. I’ll be taking Zarbee’s Sleeping aid from now on, when I need help falling asleep.
Be sure to check out the Zarbee’s website, along with their Facebook and Twitter pages to learn more about their products. I loved them so much, I went and bought the Baby’s Cough Medicine for my 10 month old. There’s no honey in that product, so it’s very safe. Their products are pediatrician approved and all natural, so you don’t have to worry about all of the unsafe chemicals in other children’s medicines.
