Chestcof® tablets and syrup

Glycyrrhiza (Liquorice) extract act as a demulcent and expectorant and menthol relieves the symptoms of bronchitis and sinusitis. Volatile oils exert a mild irritant action on the mucous membranes of the mouth and the digestive tract, which induces a feeling of warmth and increases salvation, thereby giving a demulcent soothing effect. They may also be taken for the relief of catarrh. Anise oil, ipecacuanha extract and creosote in small doses act as mild expectorants.
