A.Vogel Bronchoforce - Chesty Cough Remedy helps to relieve coughs and ease breathing. The expectorants in Bronchoforce reduce the viscosity of mucus, loosening the irritant from the respiratory tract and aiding its removal. Ivy has an expectorant action due to its saponin constituents whilst Thyme contains volatile oils which work to relax the bronchial spasm and decrease the thickness of mucus helping to ease breathing. These actions are of benefit for hacking coughs and catarrh. Liquorice works to calm down the coughing reflex as well as reducing spasms in the chest.
Thyme has been used through the ages by many different cultures. The Egyptians used it for embalming, the ancient Greeks put it in their baths and used it as incense in their temples, and in the Middle Ages the Europeans believed that by putting it under their pillows they would have a sounder, nightmare free sleep.
Of course nowadays it is used in cooking all round the world and is also used as a herbal remedy for a number of conditions. Liquorice is recognised as a tasty treat. It is part of many Eastern dishes, drinks and sweets and has been used traditionally in both Chinese and European medicine.
