Lambert Syrup, About: https://www.siroplambert.com/en/about-lambert-syrup-natural-cough-syrup
Research Facts
Lambert Syrup was developed in 1887 in St-Zéphirin-de-Courval, near Drummondville, Québec, by Québec physician Joseph-Oliver Lambert. In 1887, Dr. Lambert created the formula of his syrup and registered the patent. In 1891, the Dr. J. O. Lambert Limited company was founded, and it was incorporated in 1915, 22 years after Lambert’s death. During the Spanish influenza pandemic of 1918-1919 (a type A flu), many newspapers claimed that Lambert Syrup was curative. Lambert Syrup was by this time distributed across Canada and even in Great Britain, France, Belgium and the United States. As of 2019, Dr. Lambert’s syrup is still being sold according the original formula first patented by Dr. Lambert, and with the original brand image on the packaging with a vintage photograph of Dr. Lambert.
