Boiron Children’s Chestal Honey cough syrup works with the body as an expectorant to improve the productivity of a cough instead of working against the body as a suppressant. The sweet-tasting filtered honey soothes the throat and thins mucus. The blend of homeopathic medicines loosening chest congestion and relieves all common coughs that occur with a cold: productive/wet, dry, barking, croupy and night coughs.* Chestal Honey is a daytime and nighttime solution — calming those dry, fitful coughs at bedtime that prevent sleep, but not affecting alertness during the day. It won’t interact with other medications. It is non-habit-forming, dye-free, and 99.9 percent alcohol-free.
Recommended for children ages 2 and up, Children’s Chestal Honey is available over the counter in a 6.7 fl oz recyclable glass bottle with a dosage cup for 40 doses. Also try Oscillococcinum® for flu symptoms and the ColdCalm® line.
