Hyland’s Achieves #1 Pharmacist Recommended Status

Hyland’s is proud to announce that their Leg Cramps and DEFEND Cough products were named #1 Pharmacist Recommended in the recent Top Health Products report just released by U.S. News & World Report and Pharmacy Times.

LOS ANGELES – Hyland’s is proud to announce that their Leg Cramps and DEFEND Cough products were named #1 Pharmacist Recommended in the recent Top Health Products report just released by U.S. News & World Report and Pharmacy Times. Hyland’s Leg Cramps is the #1 pharmacist recommended product for Leg Cramp Relief, while Hyland’s DEFEND Cough Syrup is the most recommended Homeopathic Cough Product.

For 16 years Pharmacy Times, the leading trade publication, has surveyed tens of thousands of pharmacists nationwide to gather their knowledge on the most recommended over-the-counter products in multiple key health areas. A preview of the report can be found online at:


“Our company was started by pharmacist George Hyland in 1903, with the vision of providing safe, effective and natural medicines,” said Thao Le, Hyland’s vice president of marketing. “To be recognized as a #1 Pharmacist Recommended brand is an honor that goes back to our roots.”

Hyland’s Leg Cramps is a traditional homeopathic formula that stimulates the body’s natural healing response, to relieve symptoms without contraindications or side effects. Hyland's Leg Cramps is safe for adults and can be used in conjunction with other medications. Hyland’s Leg Cramps caplets are the #1 ranking internal analgesic leg treatment product2 in the FDMx (mass merchandiser pharmacy) market, and the #2 ranking homeopathic pain relief product3.

Legendary race car driver Morgan Shepherd, a Hyland’s Masters Athlete and, at 70, the oldest professional athlete in any sport, regularly uses Hyland’s Leg Cramps as part of his healthy and natural lifestyle. “I have recommended Hyland’s long before they knew about me. I wouldn’t endorse a product unless I had faith in that product and I’m telling people the truth, Hyland’s really works,” states Shepherd.

Hyland's DEFEND Cough Syrup is designed to temporarily relieve the symptoms of coughs due to colds. The pleasant-tasting formula is alcohol and PPA free. Unlike most traditional over-the-counter medicines, Hyland’s line of DEFEND products for cough, cold and sinus are formulated to stimulate the body’s own defense mechanisms to relieve symptoms rather than suppressing them.

The findings of Pharmacy Times are reported in their annual OTC Guide, a tool distributed and used extensively by pharmacists all over the country. This year, in collaboration with U.S. News & World Report, the information is being shared for the first time with consumers to help educate them on important health decisions.

Hyland’s products can be located at chain drug stores such as Walgreen’s and Rite Aid, pharmacies, grocery stores, supercenters and specialty retailers such as GNC and Vitamin Shoppe, nationwide.
