I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Zarbee’s Naturals. I received a product and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
It’s already that time of year. Mister Man has been coughing at night and unable to sleep, which means that I pull out my Zarbee’s Cough Syrup to calm his cough and let him sleep. I’ve been doing my best to stay healthy, but with a schoolteacher husband and two kids in elementary school, it isn’t easy. Fortunately, as a complement to my favorite all natural cough syrup, there is a new product designed to help me stay healthy, and I am thrilled to share my Zarbee’s Immune Support review.
I am a huge fan of Zarbee’s in general and have been for years because they offer drug free formulas that really work, and I want to minimize the drugs the wee ones (and I) ingest. And yes, they really work. With Mister Man, I can give him a dose of the cough syrup and within two to three minutes, his throat has calmed down and he isn’t coughing up a storm. The honey is a natural throat soother, and the added zinc and vitamin C have both been proven to boost your immune system to help fight colds.
The newest product in the line is Zarbee’s Immune Support. It includes elderberry, vitamin C, and zinc, all of which help support immune health, making it less likely that I’ll end up on the couch unable to be mom – and we all know what happens then. Like the other products in the Zarbee’s line, there are no drugs or dyes, and this is both gluten free and free of animal by-products (though I wish it used a sweetener other than corn syrup, though there is no HFCS in the gummies).
I have used elderberry for years during the winter months to boost the wee ones’ immune systems, and we are among the healthiest families I know (knock on wood). I’ve been late in getting started with it this year, quite possibly because I’m simply not willing to admit that it’s almost Thanksgiving already and that the cold and flu season is most definitely upon us.
The result? Little Miss is snuffling up a storm, and her snuggling with me means that she’s putting me even more at risk. Though I’m thrilled that she’s adept at blowing her own nose, I’m a little dismayed by the fact that she went through an entire box of tissues on Sunday alone. Fortunately, I’ve been pretty religious about taking – and enjoying – my three Zarbee’s Immune Support gummies every day and so far, so good.
I like the taste of the gummies, sweet with just a hint of that tart elderberry flavor. These are designed for those 12 and up, so the wee ones haven’t been able to enjoy them with me, but Zarbee’s has created a version for kids two and up called Zarbee’s Mighty Bee that includes elderberry, vitamin C and vitamin D, so there is an option designed just for them.
The products are great for when my family is most susceptible (or maybe two weeks ago for the poor wee ones) seems to be that time. It isn’t meant to treat any illness, but the ingredients are clinically proven to boost your immune function, which means you’re less likely to get sick in the first place. Personally, I’d rather stay healthy all year long!
I’ve been keeping my Zarbee’s Immune Support with me in my car in my drink holder because you know that I’m always on the go, and it’s the perfect reminder for me to take my daily dose to bolster my immune system. I know it should be easy for me to do it when I feed the wee ones breakfast, but considering that I never manage to eat breakfast when they do, my car reminder works much better for me.
And the Zarbee’s Immune Support is working. All around me, my family is coughing and sniffling – and I’ll admit that I feel a little guilty about neglecting them – but I’m still standing and functioning, and I’m giving a lot of that credit to Zarbee’s Immune Support.
