Research & Evidence

Prospan cough lozenges: Key Ingredient

Prospan lozenges contain an exclusive extract from the leaves of Hedera helix, commonly known as Ivy leaf. The specific extract used in Prospan lozenges – known as EA 575 – is carefully made using a patented production process and has been shown to provide chesty cough relief in numerous clinical trials and scientific studies around the world.1,5

Food for thought: Frustrating as they may be, chesty coughs are a reflex your body uses to clear excess phlegm from the airways in your lungs or throat. Instead of masking a chesty cough, help move it along with Prospan lozenge's specific Ivy leaf extract which can thin and loosen mucus to make it easier clear the airways during a cough due to a cold.

FAQs

 

Prospan chesty cough lozenges are a portable on-the-go member of the Prospan range.

 

Prospan is the world’s number 1 natural chesty cough medicine.6 The Prospan range is made from Ivy leaf, but not just any old Ivy leaf. In fact, the products contain a specific extract from the ivy plant (Hedera helix) – an extract known as EA 575. Prospan with EA 575 has been rigorously tested in clinical trials and scientific research to provide chesty cough relief.1

 

Natural medicines can vary considerably depending on the species of plant chosen, the way the plant is grown and harvested, and the extraction and production processes used. So it’s essential that you get the same medicine that’s demonstrated efficacy in clinical trials.

 

That’s why a patented extraction process is used to make Prospan. It’s the result of 65 years of research and innovation, and it helps ensure that every batch of Prospan has the same reliable EA 575 formula that’s been shown to relieve chesty coughs.
