Maty’s is the maker of all natural cough remedies. They use healthy ingredients like buckwheat honey which is rich in antioxidants, and grapefruit seed extract, an immune system booster and natural detoxifier.
Here’s Carolyn’s story of how Maty’s came to be:
“In 1996, my daughter Maty was born with severe heart defects. And to make matters worse, she was born without a spleen. It was a challenging time for our family. By age five she underwent three complex surgeries to repair her heart. Although her heart was mended, she was left with difficult medical issues and a weakened immune system. Her condition made her vulnerable.”
“Desperate to help my little girl, I devoted my time to finding natural remedies that would help her get and stay healthy. Along the way, I uncovered many traditional natural remedies that were no longer widely used. I began to apply modern knowledge of nature’s healing agents to the age old remedies I was discovering. They became very popular with family and friends.”
“It is these traditional remedies I discovered in my research that have now become Maty’s All-Natural product line, available from my family to yours. Our line of all-natural remedies is made from only the purest ingredients, procured from responsible sources. They are safe and effective and created straight from a mother’s loving heart. We believe that when you GET BETTER you will DO BETTER! We wish you continued good health and happiness….naturally.”
I was sent a bottle of Maty’s All Natural Cough Syrup and Kids All Natural Cough Syrup to review. The only difference between these two was the flavor – the Kids Cough Syrup is Caramel Banana flavored. Because my twins are 6 months old I didn’t want to have them try it (both cough syrups are recommended for ages 1 and up), so I figured I would try it.
Lucky me, I got a cold over the weekend. So even if I didn’t have Maty’s Cough Syrup I would have needed something anyway!
I first read the ingredients:
- Buckwheat Honey
- Zinc Gluconate
- Grapefruit Seed Extract
- Celtic Sea Salt
- Lemon Peel
- Lemon Balm
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Cayenne Pepper
Notice something there? You can pronounce everything, right? That’s because the ingredients are 100% natural! No 23-letter words for something made in a lab. No chemicals!
The consistency is very similar to honey. Which is nice, because honey while sick can coat your throat long enough to get you somewhat comfortable. Honey has been a long-time old remedy for coughs and sore throats. The cayenne pepper has a bit of a kick to it. not much though. And it’s less noticable in the Kids formula.
BUT Maty’s is different – it has the other good stuff to help boost your immune system, increase blood flow, and detox. I can tell you that after using Maty’s over the weekend I was feeling 100% by Monday!
Maty’s also carries an All Natural Baby Chest Rub that can be used on children 3 months and older!
