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

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!

    I had some undetermined illness a few years ago where I had a fever every day (among other symptoms) for nearly two months. It was horrible!

  2. Connie Faulkner says

    would like to try Zarbee’s All Natural Cough product; actually just got over a bad cold and really couldn’t find anything to work.

  3. Cindy Aiton says

    The longest was probably two weeks, but the worst was when I had food poisoning. That was the most miserable 48hrs of my life… even worse than when I cracked a rib.

    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.

  5. Erin Lawrence says

    Probably 3 weeks but every time I get sick, I have a lingering cough that continues long after the other symptoms are gone.

  6. Melissa Belle says

    One time a few years back, My husband and I were sick for almost and entire month!! It was real bad.

    Does a kidney stone count? I was nauseous and dying of the pain for about two weeks. It was horrific, so I’m glad that’s behind me.

  8. Sue Hull says

    I’ve had a cold that went into a virus and I was sick for 3 wks. Last yr I had chemo for 5 1/2 months but that’s a different kind of feeling crappy. I’m fine now.I need some of this stuff. My immune system is low so I’m always washing my hands especially aftering shopping.Eww all those nasty germs! LOL!
