Boiron Children's Cold Care Review and Giveaway

I know that school is getting ready to start for many of you, if it hasn't already. I also remember when I was teaching, and how quickly the kids in my classroom starting getting sick as they shared their germs. It really breaks your heart as a parent to watch your child suffer through sickness, but I don't like to give my son any products that I am not 100% sure will be safe for him. I usually stick to the highest quality supplements I trust: Nutriferon, Defend and Resist, Vitamin C, and his normal probiotics and multivitamin - Incredivites.

However, lately, I have been learning more and more about homeopathy, and I love it!! I want to share with you all some safe options for relieving cold and flu symptoms from Boiron, my fav homeopathic company.

Included in their children's line are three products: Children’s Oscillococcinum to nip flu-like symptoms in the bud, Children’s Coldcalm Pellets, a multi-symptom cold reliever and Children’s Chestal honey cough syrup for all types of coughs. They do not contain any of the ingredients questioned by the FDA for use in young children. That is the best part!! Let me break explain each product in a bit more detail:

Children’s Oscillococcinum works best when taken at the first sign of flu-like symptoms such as feeling run-down, body aches, chills and fever. Oscillo has been shown in four double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies to help reduce both the duration and the severity of flu-like symptoms. Each dose is packaged individually in a compact plastic tube and is safe to administer to children 2 years of age and older.

Children’s Coldcalm Pellets are specially formulated to address all symptoms of the cold at every stage from beginning to end. Coldcalm’s formula contains homeopathic medicines that relieve symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion and minor sore throat pain. Coldcalm is safe to administer to children age 3 years of age and older.

Children’s Chestal multi-cough formulas temporarily relieve coughs due to minor throat and bronchial irritation that occur with a cold and help loosen phlegm and thin bronchial secretions to make coughs more productive. The natural goodness of honey in Chestal offers a taste even kids will like. It’s safe to administer to children age 2 years of age and older.

There is nothing not to love about these products! There are no questionable ingredients like there are in so many products you find on store shelves. Have you ever looked on the back of some of those boxes? They have some nasty stuff in them! These products also work very well and have no side effects. I also like how easy they are for kids to take, since they are quick-dissolving little pellets.

Just in time for school, Boiron is giving away a pack of all three of these products to one of my lucky readers! Yes, that is right!! You have the chance to win all three of these homeopathic helpers!!

  6. I learned that to be accepted as a homeopathic medicine by the FDA, product ingredients must be identified in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS) or generally accepted as homeopathic under the principles of homeopathy.
