Ivy leaf also has expectorant, antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory effects on the respiratory tract, based on its traditional use in Western herbal medicine
Elecampane and thyme, traditionally used to relieve children’s bronchial mucous congestion and clear mucus from the respiratory tract in Western herbal medicine
Chinese licorice, which is traditionally used to ease kids’ coughing in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM)
How it Works
Coughing is the body’s way of clearing unwanted matter from the lungs and lower airways. It may also be triggered by inflammation in the respiratory tract (among other causes).
Coughs that cause mucus (also known as phlegm, sputum or expectoration) to be expelled or expectorated from the airways are sometimes referred to as wet, loose or productive. This type of cough may be worse at night, because when the child lies down, mucus drips from the upper respiratory tract (e.g. nose and sinuses) into the lower airways, triggering the cough reflex as the body tries to expel it.1
On the other hand, coughs that don’t trigger the expectoration of mucus are referred to as dry or non-productive. These types of coughs sometimes persist for long periods of time, and may be associated with inflammation of the respiratory mucous membranes. They are also sometimes characterised by spasmodic bouts of coughing.
Coughing and bronchial mucous congestion are common symptoms in children. For example, when kids catch a mild upper respiratory tract infection like a common cold, coughing may persist for a fortnight or even longer2, and more than half experience moderate-to-severe chest congestion within the first 48 hours of the cold’s onset3.
Fusion Kids’ Cough Fighter is suitable for children aged 2 to 12 years and combines herbs traditionally used in TCM and Western herbal medicine, as detailed below.
Ivy leaf soothes children’s coughs
Ivy leaf decreases coughing in children. It’s traditionally used in Western herbal medicine to clear children’s respiratory mucus and to have expectorant, anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic effects on their respiratory tracts.
Elecampane and thyme: traditional expectorants
In Western herbal medicine, elecampane and thyme are traditionally used as expectorant herbs that clear children’s respiratory tract mucus and bronchial mucous congestion.
Chinese licorice: traditional sweet cough relief
Chinese licorice is traditionally used to ease children’s coughing in traditional Chinese medicine. It has a naturally sweet flavour, which in TCM is traditionally associated with soothing properties, making it a great addition to our children’s cough mix!
When should your child see a health professional for their cough?1,4-6
Most children’s coughs are mild and of short duration, however severe or persistent coughs may indicate underlying health problems that need professional investigation and/or treatment.
See your doctor or health professional if your child has a cough that is:
Associated with breathing difficulties, a high fever, changes to the colour of their skin, or a barking or ‘whooping’ noise
Persisting for more than two weeks - especially when accompanied by other symptoms including shortness of breath and wheezing
Interfering with their sleep or daily activities
Triggered by exposure to house dust, pets or pollen, or by the consumption of certain food or drinks
