Mechanism of action:
Cough is a physiological defense mechanism of our body. Its aim is to facilitate the expulsion of foreign substances and secretions caused by infections in the respiratory tract. That’s why it is a good idea to regulate the cough mechanism while respecting its important function.
PhysioTuss® Pediatric is a 100% natural and preservative-free syrup that has been formulated to treat any cough, both dry and wet coughs.
Its exclusive formula based on natural extracts of Althaea officinalis, with honey and strawberry aroma to complete its formulation, gives it a fresh and pleasant flavor.
PhysioTuss® Pediatric forms a protective barrier on the mucous membranes of the pharynx thanks to the action of xanthan gum and gum arabic, which protect the throat from contact with irritating agents and pathogenic microorganisms, relieving irritation and keeping everything hydrated and lubricated.
Likewise, PhysioTuss® Pediatric hydrates and reduces the viscosity of mucus to favor its expulsion, thanks to the action of cane sugar, which stimulates salivation and increases the water content in mucus to make it more fluid.
Thus, PhysioTuss® Pediatric soothes, hydrates, and protects the upper respiratory tract, allowing for a complete solution to both dry and wet coughs.
60% cane sugar, purified water, honey powder, 1% marshmallow (Althaea officinalis dry extract), citric acid, 0.05% xanthan gum, 0.5% gum arabic, strawberry aroma, and mixed natural tocopherols.
