Bronchostop products use a range of three active ingredients throughout their range.
These are all natural herbal remedies which are traditionally used to relieve dry and chesty coughs.
Here’s some information about each active ingredient and which products you can find it in:
Thyme Herb Extract - Used in Bronchostop Cough Syrup and Pastilles. Thyme is traditionally used to reduce inflammation, so when used in a cough syrup it may help to ease an irritated throat and ease your cough
Marshmallow Root Extract - Used In Bronchostop Cough Syrup and Bronchostop Junior. Marshmallow root coats the back of your throat which may help soothe and protect it from further irritation, giving it room to heal
Natural Honey - Used in Bronchostop Junior. Honey is thought to work like a balm to coat and soothe an irritated throat, which may help to reduce a cough
If you’re interested in the complete list of ingredients in any Bronchostop product, we’d recommend taking a look at each product’s individual page.
On each page, we’ve included the ingredients list and a link to the patient information leaflet which provides more information from the manufacturer if one is available.
Bronchostop pastilles and syrup are both gluten-free and are not exposed to gluten at any part of the manufacturing process.
Is there any alcohol used to make Bronchostop?
Alcohol is not used in the manufacturing process for Bronchostop products.
Are Bronchostop cough medicines suitable for kids?
Bronchostop Syrup and Bronchostop Pastilles are suitable for adults and children over 12.
If you’re looking for a cough remedy for a child younger than 12, Bronchostop Junior is suitable for children aged 1 and over.
What is the best medicine for treating a cough?
The best treatment for treating a cough is dependent on the type of cough that you have. If you have a dry or tickly cough then the medication that you should use will be different than the one you should use for a chesty or mucus cough. For more information on the best types of cough medicine to use, check out our guide in the link below.
Dry cough medicines are available for children aged 3 months and over.
These cough medicines often contain an ingredient called glycerin or glycerol, which coats the back of the throat, soothing and lubricating the area and reducing your little one’s dry cough in the process.
Glycerin cough medicines are available from popular brands like Benylin, CalCough, and Tixylix, so you’ll be sure to find one that’s right for your child.
If you’re not sure which cough syrup will be suitable for your child for any reason, ask your doctor or pharmacist for some advice.
Are there any home remedies for coughs in toddlers?
If your toddler has a cough that’s making them grumpy, the best thing you can do for them is to make sure they get lots of rest and drink plenty of fluids.
If your little one is over a year old then a hot honey and lemon drink may also help them to feel a bit better, but make sure to check the temperature of the drink carefully and monitor any young children who are given hot drinks.
