Cough syrups help to ease the irritation in the respiratory tract. They are sometimes required after a cold or flu, or following other infections of the respiratory tract. Conventional cough syrups may contain ingredients that may cause drowsiness – and this is the reason why some people prefer to use a cough syrup containing herbal or natural ingredients which are not associated with this concern.
Bronchosan Pine Cough syrup: Traditional herbal medicinal product used for the relief of coughs, such as chesty coughs and dry, tickly, irritating coughs, and catarrh exclusively based on long standing use as a traditional remedy. Always read the leaflet.
What is Bronchosan Pine Cough Syrup?
Bronchosan is one of Alfred Vogel’s oldest remedies. It is a cough syrup containing the extracts of freshly harvested pine (or spruce) shoots as well as honey. Young pine shoots, picked in spring when the needles are still green and soft, have been used for many decades as a traditional remedy for dry, tickly or irritating coughs.
