Research & Evidence

Prospan: Key Ingredient

Prospan contains an exclusive extract from the leaves of Hedera helix, commonly known as Ivy leaf. The specific extract used in Prospan – known as EA 575® – is carefully made using a patented extraction process and has been shown to provide chesty cough relief in numerous clinical trials and scientific studies around the world, involving more than 65,000 adults and children.1,2

Food for thought: When looking for relief, it is important to understand what kind of cough you have. Dry coughs are non-productive and can mean having an irritated tickly throat while chesty coughs are associated with excess mucus which triggers our cough reflex to help remove the extra phlegm. When you are looking to ease a chesty cough, Prospan’s specific Ivy leaf extract EA 575 can help to thin and break up chest mucus.
