It all started when our founder, pediatrician and father Dr. Zak Zarbock, discovered compelling clinical research about the benefits of dark honey. He was inspired to create our first honey-based cough syrup for coughs associated with hoarseness, dry throat, and irritants,* and ever since then, we’ve continued to expand our portfolio based on Dr. Zarbock’s science-based approach.
We start with simple, high-quality ingredients that are backed by rigorous, evidence-based research—like dark honey, elderberry, and English ivy leaf. Then we formulate safe, effective wellness solutions you can feel good about recommending, with short lists of familiar ingredients and free of unwanted additives such as artificial flavors and drugs.
