Choosing a Cough Syrup Doesn’t Have to be Complicated
Newtown Square, Pa. – Just looking down the cough syrup aisle can be confusing to a consumer. The overwhelming number of choices catering to different types of cough and different age groups under one roof can also be expensive. Chestal® brand cough syrups simplify the process of choosing a cough medicine by creating an economical multi-cough formula to relieve coughs due to all types of coughs due to minor throat and bronchial irritation that may occur with a cold. Additionally, Chestal is safe and convenient for everyone in the household—from ages 2 to 102.
What consumers need to know is that most coughs fall into two categories: nonproductive (dry or spasmodic cough) and productive (wet cough). While either can be irritating to the throat, typically the dry and fitful coughs need to be calmed and soothed, especially at bedtime so they don’t prevent sleep. These nonproductive coughs eventually need to evolve to productive coughs. Productive coughs should not be suppressed, as they promote expectoration of these bronchial secretions from the air ducts.
Unlike cough medications that rely on suppressants, decongestants or antihistamines, the Chestal brand formula works in a different way to target all types of common coughs. The natural goodness of honey in Chestal instantly coats and soothes the throat, while a blend of homeopathic medicines loosens chest congestion, thereby relieving dry and spasmodic coughs by making them more productive. By thinning bronchial sections, Chestal can also help make a wet cough even more productive, which is especially important when a cough sufferer is too weak to expectorate effectively. The Chestal brand formula works naturally with the body to improve the productivity of a cough. This combination provides non-drowsy relief that’s important for busy folks throughout the day and a soothing effect that is appreciated at bedtime.
The formula is packaged as either “Children’s Chestal®” or “Chestal” so that parents can more easily find it in the children’s aisle or among the many products within the cough and cold section for adults. One of the safest brands of cough medicines, Chestal does not contain any of the ingredients recently questioned by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in youngsters. There are no known side effects, including drowsiness. Additionally, there is no risk of overdosing or drug interactions if combined with a cold medicine. Cough sufferers and parents alike will also appreciate that the Chestal brand cough syrups have a sweet, honey, kid-friendly taste.
