Kids’ Herbal Remedy Giveaway!

written by Head Health Nutter April 20, 2009


Does it trouble you to see your little one suffer through a cold? Too young for cough and cold medication, they have no other choice than to live through even the of worst cold symptoms. All we want to do is give them relief.

Well, you’re reading the right post then! Sinupret for Kids is a safe, natural remedy that supports healthy sinus, respiratory and immune function.

And we’re giving away free sample packs here on Live Lighter! The first 15 readers to leave a comment and send this post to a friend will receive:

  • A copy of Dr. Bob Sears bestselling book The Healthiest Kids in the Neighborhood
  • A sample of Sinupret
  • Yellow children’s binoculars
  • Sinupret for Kids Activity Book
  • Sinupret for Kids Stickers
  • Mini Plush Bear

The mini plush bear is sooo adorable. Any kid – including the kid in me – would love to snuggle with this tiny, soft handful of bear!


About Sinupret for Kids

Recommended by pediatricians like Dr. Bob Sears (click here to read his tips for keeping your kids naturally healthy in the winter season), Sinupret for Kids has a proprietary blend of five-herbal blend combination of European Elder, Sorrel, Cowslip, European Vervain and Gentian.

It’s one of the world’s leading herbal remedies for upper respiratory health in children age 2 and up. Sinupret has been Germany’s #1 most widely recommended and scientifically tested nasal and sinus support formula for children and adults for more than 30 years.

The American Botanical Council published a monograph (a technical paper focusing on one subject) in February of this year (click here to read the news release). The monograph concluded that,  “Sinupret has a relatively significant level of safety and efficacy data compared to many other natural products intended for use in maintaining the health of sinuses and the upper respiratory tract”.

From the news release:

“The availability of this product, particularly the version for children, comes at a time when millions of parents are concerned about recent government advisories about the safety of conventional over-the-counter cough and cold medications in children,” he [Mark Blumenthal, founder and executive director of ABC] added.

The Food and Drug Administration advised parents not to administer cold and flu remedies to young children under 2 years of age and is reviewing the safety of such products for older children. A leading OTC drug industry trade association has recommended that parents not administer such products to children under 4 years.

But does it taste good?

For medicinal syrup, it’s not too bad! I tried it myself and while many kids may not like the herbal taste, it’s not sickenly sweet like most cherry cough syrups. And although it has a slight bitter-sweet aftertaste, it’s very herbal and nothing compared to the alcohol, mediciney aftertaste of common over-the-counter syrups.

When my little one is feeling a little under the weather some of my natural remedies include: Lots of liquids, sitting in the steam filled bathroom and lots of love and attention!!

Denise April 21, 2009 at 12:13 pm

I agree with Dominique. But sign me up for a sample pack!!!

Melanie April 21, 2009 at 1:48 pm

As a chiropractor and a mom, I’m very interested in natural remedies for my child!

Marianne April 21, 2009 at 1:56 pm

When my little ones have colds, I like to put the humidifier in their rooms, give them plenty of fluids including orange juice.

steve April 21, 2009 at 2:24 pm

I took this stuff and an hour later i pooped myself!!!!

Stephanie Miller April 21, 2009 at 3:13 pm

Thanks for sharing your cold remedies, Ladies, and for commenting!

Email me your addresses (stephanie@livelighter.org) and the sample pack will be in your mailboxes soon.

@Steve So sorry to hear about your reaction! I took it and was ok… Would you still like your sample pack? If not for yourself, maybe someone else you know?

Tammy Hardy April 21, 2009 at 5:08 pm

Steph, Lex just had a cold not long ago and I felt helpless, I did the hot shower/steam as well but it is so hard to when she is so stuffed up she can barely eat, I would love to try it!

Stephanie Miller April 21, 2009 at 7:03 pm

@Tammy Hopefully Sinupret for Kids is just the thing for Lex’s next cold. At least you’ll have it on hand to try! 🙂

Christine April 30, 2009 at 7:15 pm

We tend to try and avoid cough/cold rememdies for the kiddies… but what the heck? If anything it would be funny to get the hubs to sample it – just incase he poops 😉

Thanks Steph.

Tanya Cross May 1, 2009 at 12:29 pm

A natural remedy, that would be fantastic. Anything natural works well in our house.

Head Health Nut May 4, 2009 at 5:43 pm

@Christine lol! Be good to hubby. 🙂

I’m glad you decided to comment. It can’t hurt to have a herbal remedy in the fridge in case symptoms get really bad for the kiddies (before the expiry date, of course!).

@Tanya Can’t go wrong with natural – it’s the only thing I trust!

Naomi Scarlett May 29, 2009 at 1:26 pm

Is this supposed to just help with the symptoms, or shorten the length of the cold?

Head Health Nut May 29, 2009 at 2:28 pm

Hi Naomi,

Sinupret claims to support sinus, respiratory and immune functioning. They do not come right out and say it, but a strong immune system definitely shortens the length of a cold.

I have used Sambucol cough syrup for years for myself and my kids. It is soothing to the throat and pretty tasty. I look forward to trying this one too! I’m currently looking for a good astragalus supplement for kids…any suggestions? i used the Herbs for Kids formula years back…

Head Health Nutter October 9, 2009 at 9:55 am

Hey Julie!

Sambucol cough syrup, I’ll have to check it out.

And an astragalus supplement… very interesting. I had to look it up (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astragalus).

It appears to be used for anti-aging… what other uses does it have that would be good for kids?


Julie D. October 9, 2009 at 10:49 am

Hi Steph,
I’m surprised wiki didn’t mention the immune benefits…but cancer treatment? that is awesome!
here’s a great site with product for kids

The Herbs for Kids line has a liquid astragalus supplement that tastes good and can be snuck into their juice. They have a full line of wonderful products.

Another great source of natural health information is the Life Extension Foundation

cheap easy way to get supplements

Head Health Nutter October 17, 2009 at 10:53 am

Wow, Julie, thanks for sharing these excellent sites with us. 🙂
