"Eases coughing, relieves bronchial spasms, thins mucus, suitable for the whole family even babies and children"

 

What is Hedelix® and what is it indicated for?

 

Hedelix® Cough Syrup and Effervescent Tablets help to relieve bronchial spasms, thin bronchial mucus and enable expectoration (coughing up and expelling mucus), thus relieving an irritated cough and helping you to breathe more easily.

 

Hedelix® works in three ways:

 

  Provides relief from a cough

Thins and loosens phlegm (mucus) in the airways

  Alleviates the symptoms of the common cold affecting the respiratory tract and those associated with chronic

inflammatory bronchial diseases

 

What does Hedelix® contain?

 

Hedelix® contains a plant extract which is extracted from the leaves of the English ivy. Hedera, commonly known as ivy,

is a well-known climbing plant that has been widely used in medicinal products since ancient times.1

 

Key benefits of Hedelix® Cough Syrup:

 

  Sugar free - may be used in diabetics

  Alcohol-free - non-sedating and suitable for use in athletes and people who need to avoid alcohol

  Free from preservatives and colourants

  Suitable for babies from birth, 2,5 ml per day

 

 

How does Hedelix® Cough Syrup compare to other products that contain ivy leaf extract?

 

In a study comparing the efficacy and tolerability of two different ivy leaf extracts in patients with acute bronchitis,

Hedelix® Cough Syrup with its ‘soft’ extract of ivy leaf was proven to have the same efficacy and tolerability as other

products containing dry extract of ivy leaf.2
