Cough remedies

Cough remedies work by soothing the cough reflex or helping the body expel mucus

Echinacea is a traditional herb known to aid the body in its fight against colds and flu by supporting the immune system – but not all Echinacea is the same! Research shows that the fresher the herb, the more effective the remedy will be, which is why our Echinaforce cold and flu remedies are made using freshly harvested Echinacea.

      This suggests that you have thick mucus at the back of the throat. There is a herb called Plantago that can help with this. In addition, avoid dairy produce as this class of foods tend to create mucus in the respiratory system.

A tickly cough is technically termed as ‘non-productive.’ This is because, unlike a chesty cough, tickly or dry coughs typically bring up little to no phlegm.
