The Trouble with Cough and Sore Throat Pain
Whether you have excessive phlegm complaints or just a sore throat with persistent cough, dealing with it can be quite distressing. It may get so severe as to cause difficulty in swallowing and even speaking.
While it is recommended that you see a physician for your throat problems, there are certain naturally soothing ingredients that could also help alongside your prescription medications.
Natural Soothing Ingredients for Cough and Sore Throat Pain
Nature has blessed us with potent ingredients that can be used to soothe symptoms like cough, mucus, nasal obstruction, and sore throat, among other things. Here are some of the most effective ones:
Propolis is a natural resinous substance produced by honeybees from different parts of a plant. It is of a waxy nature and has antimicrobial properties which can be especially helpful in treating symptoms of flu and the common cold. It has also traditionally been used for treating sore throat and mouth ulcers.
Galangin, the most active and effective ingredient in propolis, plays an important role in fighting disease-causing bacteria and strengthening immunity. Marnys®’ Propolsaft Syrup contains purified propolis having at least 10% galangin content.
Probably one of the most popular home remedy ingredients, and definitely the most-used bee product, the healing powers of honey are not to be underestimated especially in cases of cough and sore throat. It has been scientifically proven to be beneficial as an additional treatment in cases of childhood cough, inflammation of the throat, and the kind of cough that persists after infections.
The balsamic and relaxing properties of thyme can soothe troublesome cough. Research has shown thyme to effectively relieve cough caused by common cold, bronchitis, or disorders of the respiratory system causing excess phlegm production.
Menthol, with its terpene content and analgesic and antiseptic properties, can fight pain and infection in the throat. The ‘balsamic’ properties if Marnys®’ Propolsaft syrup stem largely from menthol, which is popularly inhaled in vapor form to treat nasal congestion and respiratory problems as well.
Acerola, a superfruit, is one of the richest sources of vitamin C, and is currently quite under-appreciated around the globe. Its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties help in fighting infections and could promote healing.
Marnys® Propolsaft Balsamic Syrup – An All-Natural Soothing Concoction
All the above ingredients have been formulated into a powerful, soothing syrup to help with throat distress, clear mucus, and calm cough in adults and children alike.
Marnys®’ Balsamic Propolsaft syrup can be a great addition to your cough medicines as an expectorant and remedy originating from all-natural ingredients. While all contents of Propolsaft are generally safe with very rare incidences of allergic reactions, caution is advised in case you have asthma or pollen allergy.
Adults should take 10 ml, and children 5ml of the syrup thrice daily.
