Sinupret- a product review

I was sent a sample of Sinupret Syrup for kids which is used for sinus, respiratory, and immune support.

Since my 5 year old son, Carson, inherited the family sinus infections I was anxious to give this a try.
I gave him the recommend dosage then waited to see if it would work and how well. In less than an hour he was able to breathe easier through his nose. He also didn't complain about the taste which was a huge plus in giving him medicine.

I would recommend this product for parents that are looking for more natural remedies for their families. In their informative leaflet, Sinupret explained that is "is a natural product for the support of healthy respiratory function in the sinuses and the immune system." I've begun looking into more natural and organic alternatives for my children and was impressed with Sinupret.
The only side effect listed was the possibility of an allergic reaction or gastro-intestinal distress from one or more of the natural ingredients. It's gluten-free which is something I've been trying to weed out of my kid's diets.

The following is from their website:
A proprietary blend of European Elder, Common Sorrel, Cowslip, European Vervain and Gentian, Sinupret for Kids is a solution you can count on because it really works!

  1. I wish that I could use this for my daughter but with her allergies she is on prescription nose sprays. Now, this could be perfect for me. I don't care that it's for children. I'd still use it. Great review!

  2. Thank you. I often use my kids cold medicine because in the liquid form it tends to work much faster!
