      Comments about Nature's Way Umcka Original Drops - 1 Fluid Ounces Liquid:

      I used the alcohol free version of these drops to treat cold symptoms (sniffles, sore throat, and cough) for my 3 kids. They all seemed to experience relief from it and it was easy to administer. I like that it is safe to use for the whole family. I am on my second bottle. I wish it were available in a larger size and a bit more affordable. Otherwise, a great product.

      Chrysovalantou S: There is a children's version _ Umka Cold Care Children's Cherry Flavor that I give my 2 year old. I give her 1/2 tsp (up to 3x/day) and I think it helps her and it has a sweet cherry flavor that she likes. The label on the children's version has changed from "ages 2 & up" to "ages 6 and up" but I checked with my child's pediatrician and she okayed it. At 6 years the recommended dose is 1 tsp.
      I use the "adult" drops you are asking about and I do not know if I would give them to child because it has a 13% alcohol content. (There is an alcohol free version - I do not know if Vitamin shoppe carries it, which possibly could be used since it has the same active ingredients as the children's but the flavor may not be as desireable as the children's cherry). Hope this helps.

      renae l: Hi! I give my 4 year old around 15 drops of Umcka mixed with a little water four days per week and she has never suffered any negative consequences from it. Many herbalists recommend one drop of a tincture per five pounds of body weight. For example, your child weighs 30 lbs. six drops of Umcka liquid is totally safe for your child to take. When my daughter has a fever I give her an entire dropper full of Umcka and she has never been hurt from it. I hope this helps! Also, echinacea and elderberry syrup work very well at fighting colds and my daughter has been taking those medicines since she was one year old. Feb 4, 2014

      Jaime A: The instructions seem to hint that kids younger than 12 shouldn't take Umcka. Bear in mind that the original drops contain alcohol. There are other formulas that don't (same brand). Also, even though the product is labeled as homeopathic, I honestly don't think it is; it does contain the active ingredient (which is why I think it works so well). The best thing to do, in my opinion, is to call Nature's Way toll free number and ask them directly. Feb 4, 2014

      Margaret A: According to the directions on the box, "children under 12 years old, you should consult your doctor".
      As an adult, Umcka Cold Care is amazing when taken at the first sign of symptoms.

      Kathy L: There is an Umcka coldcare for children. I would suggest you look at that AND call or contact Umcka directly for their recommendation. Feb 4, 2014

      Amita D: I would say half of what they recommend for adults. Its better to give it more often rather than more at one time. Hope this helps. Feb 4, 2014

      Emi C: I think this product is for age 12 and over. Instruction states "children under 12 years of age: consult a doctor". Feb 4, 2014

      Judy W: I would not give to a 3 or 4 year old without consulting a doctor. Feb 4, 2014
