Maty's Health Products Review and Giveaway

With cold and flu season definitely upon us, I want to introduce you to a lovely small company that I have come to really admire for their mission and their great products - Maty's Healthy Products.

I think it is so important to hear the "why" of how a company started and what their mission is with their company. Carolyn Harrington, the cofounder of Maty's explains theirs, "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. We believe that when you GET BETTER you will DO BETTER!"

I love that, at Maty's, they are using the purest ingredients to bring us all-natural remedies that we can use to switch out some of those questionable and harmful medicines that may be in our medicine cupboards.

Right now, Maty's offers All Natural Cough Syrup for Kids and for Adults, as well as All Natural Baby Chest Rub. They manufacture these products in the USA and test each ingredient, then test each batch to ensure its safety before it reaches our homes. It is really important to me as a mother to use such high quality safe products.

Let me tell you a little bit more about these products. I received all three, and I loved them! My family uses a lot of preventative measures so that we don't get sick all that often, but when someone does get sick, it breaks my heart. My son was sick with a little cold a couple weeks ago, and I jumped at the chance to try out Maty's Baby Chest Rub. Here is what I love about it: It is made from ONLY natural ingredients like eucalyptus, dill weed, coriander, chamomile, and lavendar essential oils. It does NOT include petroleum and menthol in it, which can be irritants, causing our little ones to produce mucous and inflame the airways. Yikes! I know I grew up thinking Vicks VapoRub was the way to go, but I know better now. I much prefer all natural ingredients that are completely safe.


Maty's All Natural Cough Syrup is just as awesome. Both the children's and adult's versions begin with antioxidant rich buckwheat honey. Then they add in several immune supporting ingredients such as: apple cider vinegar, lemon peel, cinnamon, lemon balm, and more! I noticed that all these ingredients are food-based, which means I don't have to worry about side effects or unidentifiable fillers. The children's version has banana flavoring added, which I don't even think is necessary, because I don't think the adult version has a bad taste. The taste is hard to describe, other than to say, you taste the ingredients that are in it. That's what you would expect, right?

One more thing I have to mention about Maty's is the way they give back. They support the Vitamin Angels with a donation from the sale of each product! LOVE THAT!! The Vitamin Angels charity then uses 95% of every donation to distribute over 100 million supplements each year to needy children all over the world. I am a huge fan of supplementation, and I just love this cause!

Now, you can find Maty's products all over the place, including Meijer, Safeway, Rite Aid and many more. Check out the list of stores and online shops where you can purchase them.

  11. I learned for centuries, parents turned to what we refer to today as ‘old-folk remedies', time-honored healing traditions passed down from grandmothers to mothers, mothers to children. These were effective cures found in nature used daily for common ailments. This is what I've always tried to do.
