Each winter Lisa has suffered with a hacking cough that would often last until spring. She tried store-bought cough syrups, but this year decided to make her own natural cough syrup. She confirms that the homemade syrup not only tastes good, but it works!
Here are just a few reasons why these ingredients work so well in a cough syrup. Lisa includes more reasons at the end of the article.
- Thyme contains flavenoids that relax the tracheal muscles. They also reduce inflammation.
- Ginger also reduces inflammation and may help to relieve bronchial inflammation. It can also help relieve sore throats which can result from bad coughs.
- The lime juice contains vitamin C and ascorbic acid. It will help to clear any phlegm that develops. It also helps to boost the immune system. You can substitute lemon juice.
- The final ingredient is soothing and also acts as a topical antibiotic, which helps to suppress coughing It also clears phlegm from your throat.
Lisa provides clear direction on how to use the natural ingredients to make the cough syrup. It’s a pretty simple recipe. There are also some excellent photographs.
