Our Story

A letter from our founder, Dr. Zak Zarbock

As a pediatrician and founder of Zarbee’s, I am thrilled that parents are learning more about safe and natural cough remedies for their families and that you’ve chosen Zarbee’s as your answer for bringing comfort into your home. In 2007, when the U.S. Food & Drug Administration ruled that children’s cough syrups were unsafe for kids under the age of four, I experienced first-hand the frustration that many of my patients also expressed. As a father of four boys, my wife and I wanted our children to feel better in their time of need, but (in the past) struggled with the available options. I discovered a compelling clinical trial showing dark honey was effective at calming coughs and soothing irritated throats in children and young adults. With the help of my test subjects (aka our four sons), I was able to create a great tasting, all-natural, vitamin-enhanced, safe and very effective product, Zarbee’s All Natural Cough Syrup, specifically designed to keep mothers from going insane!

As we go forward, Zarbee’s will continue to work on offering the best natural drug-free cough remedies available. Our goal is to get your family back to school (or work), outside to play and to your activities as fast as possible.

Thank you,

Dr. Zak Zarbock
