Zarbee’s extends brand with new extra-strength line
SALT LAKE CITY — Zarbee’s has boosted its portfolio of all-natural cough products to include an extra-strength line.
Designed for those ages 12 years and older, the over-the-counter extra-strength all-natural cough products will supplement the existing line of Zarbee’s original cough products, which currently are available for children ages 12 months and older. The new extra-strength products are specially formulated at a higher strength and dose than the original children’s product, Zarbee’s said.
"As the desire for natural and effective remedies grows and there continues to be concern surrounding drug-based over the counter products, adults are realizing that they too need a safe alternative for treating coughs and colds," Zarbee’s creator Zac Zarbock said. "This season, parents, adults, seniors, moms-to-be and nursing women can all rest assured that they will be able to find effective and natural relief with the new line of products from Zarbee’s," he adds.
The new extra-strength products will consist of syrups and drinks in assorted flavors.
