Zarbees Children's Cough Syrup - All Natural Alternative

Recently I was invited to a luncheon to learn more about a new product developed here in Utah. It's called Zarbees Children's Cough Syrup. Wait, it's All Natural, gluten free, soothes sore throats, immune boosting formula, safe for children 12 months and up. You might have even started to see it on the shelves at your local Walgreens stores too!

Zarbee's Cough Syrup contains a blend of special dark honeys, vitamins and immune-bosting ingredients. The ingredients in Zarbee's are all-natural, side-effect-free and proven in clinical trials to be effective at calming coughs and sore throats in children and young adults.

FDA: Absolute ban on cold medicines could do more harm than good for kids

"Over-the-counter cough and cold medicines for children are still available in your local stores, but some pediatricians are now demanding a recall. Those doctors say the drugs are dangerous for children ages two to six. But the FDA says an immediate ban might do more harm than good. ".
I did not know this was an issue until attending this lunch because my kids are 14 and 15 years old. But I guarantee if they were younger this would be a real problem for me and many of my friends still have children that are affected by this.  But luckily Dr. Zarbock, a Utah based pediatrician, saw an opportunity after learning about a study at Penn State which showed that buckwheat honey was more effective than children's cough syrup. He was lead to develop Zarbees, combining this honey benefit with natural vitamins to aid in the recovery process.
Better Tasting, All Natural Children's Cough Syrup

This is a really short video that sums up most children's take on the medicines we give them.
Zarbee's is available in three flavors: 
  • Cherry
  • Lemon
  • Grape
We even gave it a try ourselves! Personally, I have to say that Grape topped my favorite and Lemon my least. Honestly though they add in Vitamin C which gives it a bit of a sour taste and you just can't get away from that, but hey if you like sour then go for Lemon. Cherry wasn't too bad either! 
yes, I'm concentrating on the flavors!

Zarbee's Twitter Nurse

Now one last thing I have to tell you totally impressed me about Zarbee's is that they are offering a Twitter Nurse on staff. For my friends that love to use Twitter, how awesome is it you can send out quick question about your child to the Zarbee's nurse. She's a certified nurse and specializes in pediatric care and tries to tweet back as soon as she can with the best answer she can. You can find her at @zarbeesnurse

More Great Mom Blogs to Stalk

The second reason I love being invited to these luncheons is to network with other great bloggers. The ever popular Elise from Crazy Tales from the Motherboard and Mormon Mommy Blogs and Veronica from Welcome to My Chaos and Local Community Hot Spots. In fact here's a few I think you'd love to check out their blogs.
There were so many great people there that it's hard to feature them all, but here's a few of the fun girls I sat by and visited with the most.
First, jump over and check out my new friend Amy's awesome site, it's called Super Heathy Kids.  She has great suggestions for feeding your kids better and I love how fun her site is, spent a lot of time on there the other night. 
Second, jump over to Amber's Soggy Cherrios blog...one because I think she's fab, she's a Syracuse neighbor and I love that although she owns and professional caterering business, Amberlicious - but that she's trying to constantly find ways to feed her girls better. I know she's always on the look out for very healthy alternatives.
Now the minute Lara sat down next to me, I could tell I was going to like here. Her site has as cute of a name and totally fits here, "Less Cake More Frosting".  She's has a cute "craft" blog like mine, but we're trying to come up with a different label for our blogs! But Lara actually has a son that is constantly suffering at night from coughing and she had great results with Zarbee's....especially the night time formula. Read more about her experience with Zarbees.
Zarbee's were great hosts and sent us each home with a bag of sample Zarbee's cough syrup. But since my kids are over 12 years old I quickly donated my two bottles of cough syrup to friends that had small children that could use it. I'm all about spreading the love and I'd rather this great product was being used by a couple of great families. I'll report back on what they tell me about using it later!
