Deal with Cough and Colds Season Better with the Right Remedies

It is that time of the year again: cough and colds season. With hot, humid spells alternating with cold, rainy days, you, your loved ones, and practically everyone are at risk of acquiring respiratory illnesses. The most common of these diseases are cough and the common cold, both of which afflict most Filipinos every year.

The increased risk of catching cough, the common cold, and other respiratory illnesses are a few of the reasons you need to take even greater care of your health, especially your nose, mouth, throat, lungs, and airways – or respiratory tract, in short. When this usual pair (Cough + Cold) strike, Ambroxyl, and Salinase, respectively, maybe your right remedies to ease the symptoms.

Knock Off Cough with Ambroxyl

Ambroxyl (Ambroxol Hydrochloride) helps soften and reduce phlegm, thus, eases breathing by lessened coughing and unblocked airways.
Ambroxyl may be your comforting relief against tough phlegm that eases and clears the lungs to restore cough-free comfort to children and adults. It also helps alleviate acute and chronic respiratory tract disorders, notably bronchitis, bronchial asthma, and bronchiectasis. It also is available in both tablets and syrup, which makes it convenient for any of your preferred forms of relief.

Soothe the Common Cold with Salinase

Salinase, available in drops, spray, or nebulizing solution; is a natural moisturizer that contains saline, a purified gentle salt solution. It works by moistening thickened mucus, whose buildup causes most of the discomfort associated with the common cold such as runny nose, nasal congestion, headache, and even coughing. In addition, Salinase solution is typically mixed with anti-asthma medication for nebulization, thus helping the mixture clear mucus buildup and ease off breathing problems associated with bronchitis and bronchial asthma.

As a result, you will be able to breathe more comfortably and feel much better in no time. Salinase may be used both by adults and children and it neither suppresses appetite nor causes rebound congestion and hyper-irritability as observed with oral decongestants.

Prevention Is Better Than Cure

While Ambroxyl and Salinase maybe your right remedies for cough and colds, respectively, prevention is still better than cure. It is best to keep your respiratory tract as healthy as possible. You can do that by eating a balanced diet, getting plenty of exercises and sufficient sleep, avoiding smoking and secondhand smoke, and performing breathing exercises regularly. That said, make sure you have both Ambroxyl and Salinase on-hand and ready for use. You may get them online at — especially now that cough and colds season is here.

In buying gifts for someone or a thing for yourself, always check the specs and not just the brand. Understand and take time to read real previous from real buyers to know if that thing is worth it to buy.

When I became a mom, everything becomes expensive for me because I really try to save most of the time. I even tried cut-costing in my clothing, yes we can do that, as long as it's comfortable to wear then you are good with that clothes. Instead of buying take-out food, I cook our food, and by doing that I can also save some money.
