Today’s post is sponsored by Maty’s Healthy Products…”Let’s Get Back To Healthy”.
I am so very excited to share with you a new product that will make a healthy difference in the wellness of your family this winter season, if in the unfortunate event you should need it.
It’s that dreaded time of the year…the fall/winter season that’s coupled with crowded areas, increased gatherings and when the likelihood of getting sick increases.
Maty’s Healthy Products has a complete line of all-natural products made with real ingredients. In fact, I had the pleasure of sharing one of their products last year in this post.
But today I want to share with you their newest product – Organic Cough Syrup.
They’ve made their already effective, clean ingredient and all natural cough syrup even better by sourcing organic ingredients.
If you are new to clean eating / clean and non-toxic living, you may be accustomed to grabbing one of the mainstream cough syrups that is heavily advertised off the shelf of your local drugstore, or even the same brand that you grew up with as a child.
You may even grab a mainstream brand that your doctor or medical professional has recommended.
But I want you to know that you don’t have to buy the chemical-laden, food colored, artificial ingredient cough syrups anymore. You just don’t have to.
And, you don’t have to spend a lot of money doing so or shop at an expensive store like Whole Foods, etc. to get it.
Maty’s Organic Cough Syrup is easily accessible to everyone and is reasonably priced.
Before I give you the details about why this product should be your first choice for a cough syrup, let’s look at why you shouldn’t be buying the other mainstream brands.
Here’s the ingredient list in a very popular children’s cough syrup product:
S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) Robitussin Children’s Long-Acting Fruit Punch Flavor Cough Suppressant Ingredients:
Main Ingredient: Dextromethorphan HBr
Inactive Ingredients: Anhydrous Citric Acid, Artificial Flavor, FD&C Red No. 40, Glycerin, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Propylene Glycol, Purified Water, Saccharin Sodium, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Chloride, Sodidum Citrate (source)
First of all, you wouldn’t want to be giving your children anything with cancer-causing saccharin, red food coloring or high fructose corn syrup at anytime, but especially when they are ill and their immune system is vunerable.
And here are some side effects of the main ingredient – Dextromethorphan HBr:
Symptoms of overdose:
- Blurred vision
- difficulty in urination
- drowsiness or dizziness
- nausea or vomiting (severe)
- shakiness and unsteady walk
- slowed breathing
- unusual excitement, nervousness, restlessness, or irritability (severe)
Symptoms less common or rare:
- dizziness (mild)
- drowsiness (mild)
- nausea or vomiting
- stomach pain
You can rest assured that you will not have to worry if you or your child overdoses with Maty’s Organic Cough Syrup, or about any negative side effects (with the exception of honey, which should not be given to infants under the age of 12 months).
Because the ingredients in Maty’s Organic Cough Syrup are real food ingredients just like the ones you would be looking for in a clean eating diet.
In fact, all the ingredients can be found in your kitchen cabinets (with maybe the exception of zinc).
Now let’s look at why Maty’s Organic Cough Syrup is the perfect cough syrup for a clean eating and real food diet.
- Organic Honey – antioxident-rich honey
- Organic Apple Cider Vinegar – promotes healthy mucous flow and provides immune support
- Sea Salt – provides trace minerals and is a natural detoxifier
- Organic Lemon Peel – source of limonene, a flavonoid that encourages natural detoxification
- Organic Cinnamon – traditionally used for colds and promotes healthy breathing
- Organic Cayenne Pepper – increases blood flow and aids circulation
- Organic Clove – powerful anti-microbial agent
- Organic Marjoram – has anti-microbial properties
- Zinc Gluconate – clinically proven to shorten the duration of a cold
- Organic Extra-Virgin Olive Oil – a healthy oil containing Vitamin E
Real food and nutrient-rich herbs and ingredients are what can heal the body…not a man-made concoction of a chemical derived ingredient, red food coloring and high fructose corn syrup. Those ingredients will not naturally heal the body.
Here are some other benefits of Maty’s Organic Cough Syrup:
- gluten-free, dairy-free, alcohol-free
- corn-free, soy-free, wheat-free
- contains no artificial preservatives, color additives, sweeteners
- no harmful side effects
- no drug interactions
- safe, gentle, effective
I fell in love with Maty’s Cough Syrup when I did a review of it last year. In fact, I even packed a bottle in our first-aid bag when we went on a cruise last November as a precaution because I didn’t want to be out in the middle of nowhere without access to natural remedies if we were to need them.
It’s very thick and has a nice, non-medicinal taste to it that would make it easy to give to children*.
This product contains honey and should not be given to infants under 12 months.
Another reason I love Maty’s Healthy Products is because it is a company that was founded by a mother on a mission to create a healthy product for her own daughter who was born with a weakened immune system. It is a U.S. family owned and operated manufacturer of all their natural products and they also participate in “Vitamin Angels” project which helps needy children worldwide with vital nutritional supplements.
And although this post was to share with you Maty’s new product, their Organic Cough Syrup, I also wanted to briefly mention another one of their products that is a healthier alternative to mainstream brands – Maty’s Petroleum-Free All Natural Vapor Rub.
Compare it to the ingredients in a popular mainstream brand:
S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) Vick’s Vapor Rub Ingredients:
Active Ingredients: Camphor (Synthetic), Eucalyptus Oil, Menthol; Inactive Ingredients: Cedar Leaf Oil, Nutmeg Oil, Petrolatum, Thymol, Turpentine Oil (source)
Here are the ingredients in Maty’s Petroleum-Free All Natural Vapor Rub:
Maty’s Petroleum-Free All Natural Vabor Rub Ingredients:
Ingredients: Sunflower Oil, Coconut Oil, Candellila Wax, Castor Oil, Shea Butter, Vitamin E, Essential Oils of Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Pine, Wintergreen and Cedar Leaf.
