Prospan im Detail

Prospan®
What makes Prospan® cough preparations stand out from others is the individual and unique manufacturing process that is used to produce them. This exclusive process results in the unique Prospan® Special-Ivy-Extract EA 575®, whose individual characteristics can be compared to a fingerprint.

Thanks to its pneumoactiv formula®, the special extract is able to effectively treat complex cough-related processes. Prospan® liquefies the sticky mucus trapped in the bronchi, allowing it to be coughed up more easily and thus removed from the body. As a result of the relaxant effect on the bronchi, obstructed airways are widened, enabling you to breathe freely again. Individual components in the extract have anti-inflammatory effects. Prospan® cough preparations are effective and especially well tolerated.

Compared to various other cough preparations, Prospan® is very versatile. It can be used not only for acute forms of coughs, but also for chronic, inflammatory bronchial conditions.

Interesting facts

Coughing
Coughing is a symptom and is not usually a disease. Coughing has the function of relieving the airways of substances which can block them or cause them to become constricted. The causes are usually conditions affecting the respiratory organs. In diseases of the heart or stomach, the intake of medicines, or mental disorders can also be accompanied by coughing. At the start of a cold, the cough tends to be dry (“dry cough”). After one to three days, tough mucus is produced in increasing quantities, thereby impairing the natural cleaning function of the airways. This leads to a persistent urge to cough, as the body wants to rid itself of the mucus.

The bronchial muscles subsequently go into spasm. By contracting the muscles and coughing, the body tries to get rid of the mucus. This results in shortness of breath. Those affected also suffer from inflammation of the bronchial mucous lining as a reaction to the virus attack.
