Zarbee’s All Natural Cough Syrup — Now for Adults Too (Giveaway)

by Janice

I have been sick since school started.

My daughter entered kindergarten this September, (my oldest is in fifth grade,) and I have been sick ever since!

The first cold knocked me over before the second week of school and just a few days after I stopped coughing from that cold, I came down with an even worse one.

The ONLY good news in this sick story is that, fortunately, I discovered Zarbee’s this summer. And I am not exaggerating when I say that in the last two months, Zarbee’s has gotten me through many nights of coughing, cross-country airplane flights, and even photo shoots when I am trying not to cough on my clients!

(I have even been carrying a bottle of Zarbee’s with me in my purse!)

Zarbee’s was developed by one of the country’s top pediatricians, Zak Zarbock, M.D. In 2008, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) found it unsafe for parents to give any of the current children’s cough syrups to kids under the age of four. This left parents struggling with what to give their coughing child.

As a pediatrician and father himself, Dr. Zarbock was frustrated that he was not able to offer any relief to his young patients with coughs and sore throats. He set out to create a safe and effective natural remedy that he could feel good about recommending to parents.

Zarbee’s Adult Line of Cough syrups

This fall, just in time for cough and cold season, Zarbee’s expanded its line of children’s cough products and launched its brand new line of cough products for adults and kids 12 and up.

This new product extension makes Zarbee’s the only all natural cough solution for the ENTIRE family and provides a safe and drug-free alternative to treating coughs — the ailment that sends 30 million Americans to the doctor’s office annually.

This summer, Susan and I got to meet Dr. Zarbock and even had some fun fighting over who got to keep the Zarbee’s gift bags. We are both thrilled that Zarbee’s provides safe cough medicine alternatives for families — and that they really work!

 

What we love about Zarbee’s

Here are just a few of the reasons why we love Zarbee’s:

  • All natural cough remedy for everyone in the family
  • Zarbee’s does not contain drugs – no Dextromethorphan or Pseudoephedrine
  • Zarbee’s contains no dyes, no alcohol, no artificial preservatives, and is gluten-free and dye-free
  • Each dose of Zarbee’s extra strength products includes 100% of the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C
  • The nighttime Zarbee’s formulas contain Melatonin so that you or your child will sleep more restfully

Enter to Win

We love Zarbee’s natural cough products so much that we know you guys will too. So Zarbee’s is giving us 3 care packages of products to give away here at 5 Minutes for Mom. Each care package will include 2 bottles of children’s products and 2 bottles of adult products.

Just use the Rafflecopter form below to enter this giveaway. New to Rafflecopter? Watch this 45-second video on how to enter!

Susan and I are working with Zarbee’s to help other moms like us discover that we can FINALLY get the relief we need from these dreaded colds and coughs we get every year. All opinions listed are our own.

Two years. Two years ago I caught the flu, and got a bit better. But, the cough lasted for two years. I would literally cough for 8 to 10 hours straight. Nothing helped, I saw multiple doctors. No one every figured it out. One day, I finally started feeling better and the cough went away. So, I had the flu for about a week and a half, but it took me two years to get over it.
