Bronchosan Pine Cough Syrup
to ease your cough

Cough syrup for dry, tickly, irritating throat coughs

Bronchosan Pine Cough Syrup is made from freshly harvested pine (spruce) shoots

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.

FAQ Bronchosan Pine Cough syrup

1. It seems unusual for a cough syrup to contain Pine or Spruce shoots. Can you tell me more?

Bronchosan is unique in containing pine or spruce shoots as its active ingredient. The young leaves of Picea abies (sometimes also known as the Norway Spruce and used for Christmas trees), have a long tradition of use to help relieve coughs.

2. Is Pine the same as Spruce?

Yes. The plant used in Bronchosan, Picea abies, has been given a number of common names in the past, including Pine, Spruce and Norway Spruce.

3. Many cough syrups can cause drowsiness. Will this be the case with Bronchosan?

There is no evidence that the use of Bronchosan will lead to drowsiness as it does not contain the active ingredient present in some conventional cough syrups or cough remedies which can cause sleepiness.

4. Why can’t I use Bronchosan for my child under 12 years of age?

Bronchosan is a herbal medicine licensed or registered by the UK Department of Health. It is the policy of this government body that the use of cough syrups and other remedies for coughs are restricted in children under 12 years of age. If your young child needs treatment for his or her cough, you should make an appointment with your GP or see your pharmacist.
