While not a drug for sinusitis, it is a natural aid for sinus health. Parents are looking for a natural and safe approach for their kids
SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (PRWEB) September 18, 2008
The availability of Sinupret for Kids comes at a good time since The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has just announced it will conduct a review and revise criteria for over-the-counter (OTC) cough and cold medicines for children under 12 due to safety concerns.
"With OTC medicines' safety and efficacy now in question, parents need safe and effective non-drug options that keep children healthy," said Dr. Narinder Duggal, MD, renowned internist and pharmacologist, and associate professor at the University of Washington. Not a drug to treat disease, but a natural remedy to support the maintenance of healthy sinus, respiratory, and immune system function, Sinupret for Kids syrup is Dr. Duggal's choice for healthy kids. "For healthy sinus and respiratory support, I recommend a natural product that has been used in Germany by physicians for almost 75 years for adults. Today the kids' version, which has been on the market in Europe for 30 years, is available in the US."
Sinupret for Kids syrup promotes healthy drainage in the upper respiratory tract, improves airflow in the nose and supports healthy mucous flow in the nose and sinuses.
The natural remedy is developed through a proprietary blend of European Elder, Sorrel, Cowslip, European Vervain, and Gentian that supports healthy sinus and respiratory function for children 2 and older.
Sinupret for Kids has been widely studied and cited as safe and effective in numerous medical journals and, does not contain stimulants, caffeine, ephedra, pseudoephedrine, codeine, steroids, narcotics or gluten.
Renowned pediatricians, family practitioners, pharmacists and naturopaths in the US were asked to test Sinupret for Kids during the winter of 2007-2008, including Dr. Bob Sears, Dr. Jay Gordon, Dr. Marcus Laux and Dr. Duggal. Their positive experiences resulted in dispensing Sinupret for Kids to hundreds of families.
"Of the products that I have examined, I prefer Sinupret for Kids which is made by a German company with a long track record for its effectiveness and lack of any harmful side effects," said Dr. Bob Sears. "While not a drug for sinusitis, it is a natural aid for sinus health. Parents are looking for a natural and safe approach for their kids," he concluded.
