Father and pediatrician Dr. Zak Zarbock was inspired to create Zarbee's Naturals™ after noticing that the number one symptom driving patients to his office was a cough. More than anything else, coughs were what kept kids—and their parents—up at night. Moms were also looking for alternative products, but there weren't many wholesome, safe, and chemical-free options on the shelf.
After doing a little digging, Dr. Zak discovered a compelling clinical study showing dark honey's effectiveness at calming coughs associated with hoarseness, dry throat, and irritants.* After a few tests and trials (with his boys as subjects), he developed his very first product, a honey-based kids’ cough syrup made with vitamin C and zinc and completely free of unwanted ingredients like alcohol, drugs, and artificial flavors.
Today Zarbee's makes products for all ages, from infants to adults. From vitamins that help support immune systems to cough syrups that soothe,* we know that one person’s health impacts everyone else at home, school, the office, and beyond. It’s our goal to be there for as many people as possible with carefully sourced, handpicked ingredients that make for a happy, thriving community.
Starting with our very first product, we've defined ourselves by what goes into a Zarbee's bottle, and just as importantly, what does not. Powerful, natural ingredients—like dark honey, elderberry, and agave—form the backbone of our products. What you won’t find in our lineup are drugs, alcohol, gluten, or artificial flavors, sweeteners, and dyes whenever possible, which means you can feel good about what you bring into your home.
We like to think of our small (but growing!) team as one big family. We have two "homes," one in Salt Lake City, Utah and another in Greenwich, Connecticut. From our CEO Bret Furio, to our Office Managers Kara and Judy, we all share a passion for wellness and are committed to helping you keep your hive buzzing.
