ZARBEE’S COUGH SYRUPS Zarbee’s started out of necessity in 2008 when Dr. Zak Zarbock saw a serious need to have safer cough products for his young patients.  This lead to the creation of Zarbee’s All Natural Cough Syrup, a cough syrup safe for children 12 months and older.  Especially popular among parents with small children, Zarbee’s has continued to launch innovative products for children and adults. New in 2012, Zarbee’s has introduced an entire line of all natural, drug-free products for the entire family.  Zarbee’s is leading the cough and cold category growth with new products like Zarbee’s Day and Night Cough Syrups and Day and Night Powders, which are mixed with hot water to soothe throats and coughs. Dr. Zarbock says, “Zarbee’s started by creating really great children’s products and has since grown into an all family brand because parents are looking for better and safer products for the entire family.  We will continue to offer innovative and safe products based on our customer’s needs and feedback.  We are fortunate to get immense amounts of feedback from our customers, which we really use to make our products great!”
