Cough Drops, Home Remedies and Esotyne

When dealing with a cough, you may be willing to try anything just to get rid of it because it is so bothersome.

There are many different things that you can try and this article reviews cough drops, home remedies and Progressive Health's vitamin supplement called Esotyne.


Cough Drops

A cough drop is a small, medicated candy that is intended to be dissolved slowly in the mouth to lubricate and soothe irritated tissues of the throat.

Cough drops are used for a sore throat, common cold or influenza and usually contain benzocaaine, an anesthetic or eucalyptus oil and some brands contain dextromethorphan.


Home Remedies

There is also a non-menthol form that uses either zinc gluconate glycine or pectin as an oral demulcent. There are some cough drops that contain more menthol or peppermint oil and spearmint as their active ingredient.

Most cough drops should be taken in moderation, due to the fact that some active ingredients could be hazardous to your health if they are consumed in large amounts. Be sure to read packaging instructions to avoid such hazards.

Here are some home remedies to help stop a cough:

  • Breathe the steam from a vaporizer, hot shower, or pan of boiling water. The moist air will soothe the airways and loosen sinus congestion and phlegm in your throat and lungs. A few drops of the oil of eucalyptus will help this process.
  • Stop smoking. Passive smoke or other irritants, such as chemicals, can be a cause. Household cleaners, new carpeting, paneling and mattresses are some of the many possible sources of chemical irritants.
  • Drink at least 8 eight ounce glasses of water. This is especially important if your cough is due to an illness. Water is the best expectorant you can take and will help thin the mucus and loosen the cough.
  • Try eating hot chili peppers, horseradish or other spicy foods. They will help loosen mucus.
  • Drink hot tea to break up the mucus and open and moisten the airways.

These few tips will help with your cough, but if they don't fully work try our vitamin supplement Esotyne.
