Product Review - Zarbee's All-Natural Children's Cough Syrup

About the Product
When the leaves begin to change color and the air becomes crisp, it is evident that a new season is upon us, and I’m not just talking about fall. October unofficially marks the start of cold and flu season. A new year means new concerns for everyone, especially parents. In the wake of the McNeil Consumer Healthcare (Johnson & Johnson) recall from earlier this spring which pulled over 40 popular name brand children’s cold, cough and allergy medications from the shelves, it has been virtually impossible for parents to stock up on even the generic versions of these products. This, along with all of the attention the dangers of dextromethorphan (DM or DXM) has been getting lately, has left a lot of parents out there wondering; “What products are actually safe for my children when they are sick?” It is with this in mind that I feel your readers would be interested in “being in the know” about a safe and effective alternative pediatricians, pharmacists, and parents across the country are turning to this year as the cold weather approaches.

As a pediatrician, Dr. Zak Zarbock found it frustrating when he was unable to offer any help for his young patients with a cough being that DM based cough syrups are not safe for children under the age of four; in fact all DM based products should not be administered to any child younger than 12 due to its ability to cause further health complications including dizziness, breathing problems, high blood pressure, and in some cases even death, not to mention its abuse potential among adolescents. So he set out to find a better children's cough syrup than the traditional over the counter drugs for his patients, he researched and studied several different options. Published in 2007 in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, a double-blind study conducted at Penn State University concluded that honey, when compared to a DM based syrup and a placebo syrup, is significantly superior in suppressing coughs when administered to children ages 1-18 years old. Because honey is a natural product, it is safe and drug-free yet extremely effective at soothing sore throats. With added vitamin C and other unique all-natural ingredients, honey becomes an effective remedy to sooth throats and calm coughs. Cough medicine as we know it will never be the same thanks to ZarBee's Children's Cough Syrup. There is now a cough remedy that pediatricians and pharmacists alike can actually feel good about recommending.
ZarBee’s Children's Cough Syrup is the world’s first and only all natural cough suppressant that is safe and effective for children as young as 12 months old. It is made with a unique blend of dark honey, vitamins and other all natural ingredients and contains no harmful drugs (like DM) or alcohol. It is high in antioxidants and each dose of ZarBee's Children's Cough Syrup contains your child’s daily Vitamin C requirement. ZarBee's is the safest and most effective cough syrup available. Since ZarBee's is a natural product, it doesn't taste like the cough medicine you are familiar with; no more choking it down. Your child will actually love the great Lemon or Cherry flavors! Ideal for coughs caused by minor throat irritation, night coughing, dry or scratchy throats, and hoarseness, ZarBee’s Children’s Cough Syrup is a must in every parent's medicine cabinet. You can purchase ZarBee’s Children’s Cough Syrup online at or at select retail locations including Walgreens nationwide.
As cold and flu season approaches, I would love the opportunity to work with you on a review of ZarBee’s Children’s Cough Syrup. This truly is the only safe and effective cough medicine for children under the age of 4. As I’m sure many of your readers are concerned with the dangers of DM based products for their children, they will certainly end up thanking you for letting them know about ZarBee’s.

My Take on the Product
Good tasting and natural, I was excited to find that it not only worked but it was something that my child was willing to take without argument (usually this was not the case). For me, I received the same of this just in time to catch a nasty cough that my eldest caught from school and she actually tried it and said it tasted good. Not only that, it worked! So, I am convinced, as I would rather stay away form the non-natural medications, so for me and my family Zarbee's is a great alternative!

If you think this would be great for your own family, you can find it on Amazon!
