What are BronchoStop pastilles?
BronchoStop pastilles are a natural cough remedy which uses herbal ingredients to ease your cough, based on traditional use. BronchoStop pastilles can be used to ease any type of cough, so if you don’t know what type of cough you have or find that your cough can vary between more than one type, these pastilles can take the hassle out of choosing a cough remedy. This product is non-drowsy and does not contain gluten.
What is the difference between a dry and a chesty cough?
All coughs are not created equal, and a dry cough and a chesty cough can be very different.
A dry cough is the type of cough that doesn’t bring up phlegm or mucus and is also known as a tickly cough because you start coughing in response to a tickling feeling in the back of your throat. A chesty cough is the type of cough which brings up mucus or phlegm, which is why it may also be called a mucus cough. When you have a chesty cough, your body is trying to remove the excess mucus from your airways, causing that annoying cough.
How will BronchoStop pastilles help to ease my cough?
BronchoStop pastilles contain a herbal ingredient called thyme extract, which is traditionally used as a cough remedy. It can be used as a natural remedy for any type of cough and is particularly popular with those who prefer herbal remedies to medicines.

Some products can interact when used together, making your medication less effective or causing unwanted side effects, but a medical professional can help you to avoid this.
