What is Glycerin Honey & Lemon?
Glycerin Honey & Lemon is a syrup which can help to ease coughs and sore throats. Take every 4 hours or so to soothe your irritated throat and reduce coughs. This product is suitable for children aged 1 and up, making it the ideal cough and sore throat remedy for the whole family.
Why do I have a cough and sore throat?
One of the most common reasons why you may have a cough or a sore throat are colds or the flu. Both of these symptoms can be caused by the irritation in your throat caused by a viral infection, making your throat feel tickly or sore. They’ll usually clear up by themselves within a week or two, but cough syrups can help to soothe your poor irritated throat until your cold has passed.
How will Glycerin Honey & Lemon help to soothe my sore throat or cough?
Glycerin Honey and Lemon syrup helps to soothe your sore throat and cough by creating a coating on the back of your throat. This helps to soothe inflammation and protect your throat from further irritation when you’re coughing away.
