Consumer Critique: Natural Cold & Flu Medications from Kids Relief and Xlear

Disclosure: I received complimentary products to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.

Kids deserve the best during cold and flu season, especially when it comes to what goes into their body. When a child is experiencing discomfort, it is natural for parents to reach for the medication that will provide the most effective relief. However, what many don’t realize is that natural medications can be just as powerful as those than contain drugs.

Kids Relief has created a homeopathic line that will tackle all of your child’s symptoms during these trying months. The company prides itself on natural products that provide fast-acting and effective relief all without the use of dyes or sugars. Some of the widely used medications include the Cough & Cold Syrup and Flu Oral Liquid.  

Xlear has produced Kids Xlear Nasal Spray, their tried and true formula that will conquer even the worst sinus troubles. The nasal spray is infused with xylitol, a plant derived ingredient that helps to naturally draw moisture, keeping nasal passages cleaner than with just saline alone. Xylitol, which also aids in dental hygiene, and those suffering with diabetes, is also a proven bacteria fighter! Xylitol sprays have been shown to decrease incidence of ear infections and stimulate the body’s own natural nasal cleansing system.

I've used products from both brands before, and I've been very pleased with the results. Especially in light of the fact that recommendations are to not give cough medicines to young children, it's nice to have a safe option to provide some relief. Nasal spray does take some getting used to - my kids don't really like the sensation - but it can really help for some upper respiratory issues.
