About Gripe Water

Where can I buy gripe water?

What is gripe water?

    Gripe water was first manufactured in London around 1928. The formula was also copied in India at that time. Both products were successful and are still available today. Earlier gripe water was made in the home or by individual doctors.

    Gripe water is a natural liquid solution which provides relief for babies and children suffering from minor stomach discomforts due to gas, colic and hiccups. Handed down from generation to generation, it has been used in many parts of the world, particularly Europe, for more than one hundred years.

    Gripe water is usually a blend of healthy ingredients known to be beneficial for digestion.
