For centuries now, people have been relying on the healing power of ivy to treat inflammatory bronchial conditions. Today, in modern phytomedicine, ivy is used as a medication for the effective treatment of coughing. The full extent of its capabilities is the subject of continuous research, however, new studies are providing more and more details. The determinant active ingredients of ivy are the saponins. Where and how they act is also under research. Scientists have discovered, for example, that the dilating effect that these saponins have on the bronchi also depends on their concentration. The exact composition and production of an ivy extract can therefore have an influence on its actual effectiveness.

Prospan® 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, constricted airways are widened, enabling you to breathe more freely again.

While many cough medications mimic the natural mechanism of cough to help alleviate the symptoms, Prospan® optimizes the use of the bodily natural components without any chemical interference.

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