The new collection will make Zarbee’s the #1 all natural, safe, drug-free and effective cough alternative for the entire family. Launching just in time for the 2012 cough and cold season, Zarbee’s creator, pediatrician and father Dr. Zak Zarbock, developed the extra strength products in response to the overwhelming response from parents in search of a natural alternative to coughs that their children have enjoyed since the creation of Zarbee’s. “As the desire for natural and effective remedies continues to grow and there continues to be concerns surrounding drug-based over the counter products, adults are realizing that they too need a safe alternative for treating coughs and colds,” says Dr. Zarbock. “This season, parents, adults, seniors, moms-to-be and nursing women can all rest assured that they will be able to treat their symptoms safely and effectively with the new line of products from Zarbee’s,” he adds.
The extra strength products are specially formulated at a higher strength and dose than the original children’s product that was developed after a clinical trial back in 2007 at Penn State University. The trial demonstrated not only that “traditional” cough syrups don't work in children, but also that a natural ingredient was effective – buckwheat honey. This discovery led to the creation of Zarbee’s – a cough syrup that combines the beneficial properties of buckwheat honey with other antioxidant-rich honeys and immune boosting vitamin C and zinc. The result is a remedy that is not only natural and drug-free, but clinically proven to calm coughs and soothe sore throats in a safe and effective manner and is recommended by more than 40,000 pediatricians across the country. The new extra strength products will consist of syrups and PM drinks in assorted flavors. About Zarbee's Zarbee's is the fastest-growing children's cough and cold brand in the country. Developed by Dr. Zak Zarbock, one of the country's top pediatricians, and recommended by pediatricians nationwide, Zarbee's products are all-natural, drug-free and made from antioxidant-rich buckwheat honey, which clinical trials have shown to be the safest and most effective treatment for relieving coughs in children.
Zarbee's products do not include Dextromethorphan (DM), the most common over-the-counter treatment for coughs. A controversial ingredient not supported by the American Academy of Pediatrics, DM has been banned for children ages four and younger and is being scrutinized by the FDA as ineffective and potentially dangerous for children.
Zarbee's products are also gluten free, contain no drugs, alcohol or dyes, have no side effects and carry no risk of overdose. Zarbee's products are available at Walgreens, Walmart, CVS, Rite Aid, Kmart, Kroger, Winn Dixie, Albertsons and Meijer stores nationwide. For more information, please visit www.Zarbees.com.
