FOR COUGHS, COLDS AND SORE THROATS
The Comvita range of Syrups, Elixirs and Lozenges are all wonderfully soothing for sore throats, sniffles and coughs and I always try to keep a selection in the first aid cabinet.
Comvita Propolis products include Herbal Elixir, Lozenges, Throat Spray and Lip Balm, as well as tincture, tablets and capsules.
I've tried many different brands of regular cough and cold medicine over the years and found that, although most cough syrups and throat sweets might ease that irritating tickle for a few minutes, they never have any long-term benefit. Comvita is totally different and has, certainly in my experience, not just a comforting but an active healing effect, too.
There are several products in this range suitable for children that are also additive-free and great tasting.
What is propolis?
Most of us have heard of the natural substance known as propolis which is found in beehives? It’s actually collected by the bees from plant sap and resin, taken back to the hive and mixed with enzymes, a combination which helps to keep the hive free of disease. But I wonder how many people realise what a powerful therapeutic substance it can also be for humans?
Propolis not only has known antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, it's also rich in a wide range of important compounds including antioxidant flavonoids which have vital role to play in helping to maintain a healthy immune system.
Comvita Propolis Lozenges deserve special mention because they are the best (as in effective and delicious) throat sweets I have ever encountered. I've recommended them to so many people and everyone seems to agree that they're great. I urge you to try all three flavours (Cool Mint, Aniseed and Lemon & Honey). Cleverly, Comvita also do a Lemon & Honey 'lollipop' version suitable for kids and Kojaks. "Who loves ya, baby!"
