Are nighttime coughs keeping your family awake?
A scratchy throat, blocked nose and persistent cough can be tough, especially if it’s keeping your little one – and you – awake all night.
Children are up to four times more susceptible than adults to catch a cold during winter. While there may not be a cure for the common cold, there are ways to safely, gently and naturally relieve the symptoms, to give everyone a good night’s sleep.
A cough, runny nose and sore throat are common symptoms of an upper respiratory tract infection (URTI). Children can get six to 12 URTIs a year, with the most common – colds, sore throat and laryngitis – caused by viruses. Antibiotics only treat infections or diseases caused by bacteria, and don’t kill viral infections.
A natural and gentle ingredient which helps relieve symptoms of a dry cough is from a plant called Hedera helix – otherwise known as ivy leaf extract. The extract works by thinning the phlegm, which causes the cough, so your child can breathe easier. Hedera helix is a herb, which means it will have no adverse effects on your child. This is why pharmacists around Australia recommend Kids Prospan as a safe and effective cough relief syrup.
If you are in good health, your immune system will take care of most respiratory tract infections caused by viruses, and even some bacterial infections, by itself. Cough and cold symptoms typically last seven to 10 days. This is why BioRevive has developed Kids Prospan. Designed especially for children it is proven to relieve coughs and colds gently and safely.
Prospan’s active ingredient is ivy leaf extract (Hedera helix). This herb has been clinically tested on over 65,000 patients, including more than 50,000 children aged between newborn and 12 years.
Unlike traditional cough medicines, Kids Prospan cough syrup is free of colourings, sugar and gluten, making it gentle for little stomachs – and kids love the taste! With the cough gently put to rest, everyone can enjoy sweet dreams during the winter months.
Please see a doctor if you or your child’s cough lasts for more than 14 days. Kids
Prospan is available in all good pharmacies nationally.
