  3. Bronchostop Introduces New Cough Syrup, Bronchostop Nite


 iNova Pharmaceuticals has launched an innovative addition to the Bronchostop range; Bronchostop Nite which relieves a dry cough as well as night-time cough, early symptoms of common cold and low grade fever1.

A cough at night has been reported as one of the most common causes of night-time awakenings associated with colds and flu and can have a significant impact on quality of life; including a person’s ability to work, sleep and function during the day2. Night-time coughs can be disruptive and frustrating. While rest is integral to helping the body fight illness, a nagging cough can prevent patients from getting the sleep they so badly need2,3.

Bronchostop Nite contains a combination of natural ingredients namely Marshmallow root dry extract, Ribwort Plantain leaf dry extract and Lime flower dry extract. These ingredients work together to reduce the urge to cough and help patients get a better night’s sleep1,4,5.

Marshmallow root dry extract and Ribwort Plantain leaf dry leaf extract are mucilaginous demulcents that coat the throat to relieve local irritation and soothe inflammation while protecting against irritants or foreign particles as well as post-nasal drip which irritates the throat lining and triggers the cough reflex1,6.

Lime flower dry extract has a mild diaphoretic effect, to helps promote sweating and relieve mild feverish colds. It also has a mild sedative effect to which helps ensure a peaceful night’s sleep5.

Patients can now benefit from a cough medicine containing natural ingredients which creates a protective coating on the pharynx, reduces cough receptor sensitivity and relieves cough irritation1,5,6,7.

According to the Mayo Clinic, rest is one of the most important ways your body fights off infections. Unfortunately, getting enough rest can also be the hardest thing to accomplish when a patient has a nagging night-time cough8.

Now available in leading pharmacies nationwide, Bronchostop Nite is available in a strawberry flavour and is suitable for children over the age of 4 years1.
