In 2008, after determining that it was unsafe for parents to give any of the current children’s cough syrups to kids under the age of 4, the FDA increased the age restriction for over-the-counter cough syrups to 4 years of age. This was alarming to parents and medical professionals who began to question, not only the efficacy, but the potential side-effects of traditional cough syrups. Out of the ensuing confusion among parents as to what they should give their children, came Zarbee’s- the first all-natural, truly effective and safe children’s cough syrup. Zarbee’s is the creation of Dr. Zak Zarbock, a pediatrician and father who everyday dealt with parents frustrated at not being able to find a safe and effective solution for their childrens’ coughs. Realizing the need for an effective cough syrup that parents could trust and feel good about, Dr. Zarbock began to research clinical trials. After a few months, he came across a compelling trial comparing buckwheat honey to traditional over-the-counter cough syrups. The results indicated that buckwheat honey was more effective at calming coughs and sore throats in children and young adults*. In 2008, just months after Dr. Zarbock’s discovery of the buckwheat honey trials, Zarbee’s Cough Syrup was created. By blending special dark honeys, vitamins and immune-boosting ingredients, Zarbee’s became the first proven-effective option for cough relief in children. Now available in Walgreens pharmacies and many national retailers, Zarbee’s has emerged as the choice of caring parent nationwide. Today the FDA is considering increasing the age restriction on traditional cough syrups from 4 years to 6 years, further testimony to the fact that Zarbee’s Cough Syrup should be the only choice for your children. Dr. Zak Zarbock was invited to participate in the September 2010 FDA hearing on Capitol Hill to share his insight as a practicing medical professional on the growing trend of accidental overdosing of young children and cough syrup abuse among teens. Dr. Zarbock has been a guest on numerous radio shows, and interviewed in newspaper articles and news stations offering his expert advice to parents. Twitter and facebook pages!

I actually glad this came in time. My 15 month old just went through a coughing/cold sick time. So when this came I opened it right up and gave it to him. Winston never fought for it, took it like a champ and made his daytime/nighttime coughing so much of a ease for him! Poor guy was so sick too and this product did a huge excellent job on making him fill so much better. He actually slept for 6 hrs at night before he would wake up to cough, as before he didn’t have it, he would wake up every hr to cough his brains out. This company is the only one I know of the has cough medicine for under 2 years of age. So I was super stoked to have this as it helped him get over his sickness X2 faster. I am so happy that this came in the knick of time for his sickness. I even tasted it, as I do before any my kids try things. It tastes so good. My kids will fight for any other cold medicine stuff. NOT this companies, they took it with no issue. Usually I have to put it in there milk for them to drink it up. What a relief to have a company that has cough medicine for over 12+ months. This product shipped to me super fast and I hurry and rushed it into my child and within a hour he was bouncing off the walls again.
