We’ve all been there, tossing and turning at 2 a.m., disturbed by a relentless cough.

Whether it’s your partner’s persistent hacking or your child’s distressing cough fits, a night-time cough doesn’t just steal sleep; it robs us of our peace of mind and the energy needed to face the day.

Recognising this, iNova Pharmaceuticals announces the launch of a new addition to their Bronchostop range; Bronchostop Nite, which relieves a dry cough as well as a night-time cough, early symptoms of common cold and low grade fever1.

A night-time cough is most often dry and persistent and can be caused by a variety of factors including the common cold, the flu, allergies, and exposure to environmental irritants2.

A night-time cough can be disruptive and extremely frustrating. A recent study showed that a cough is one of the most common causes of night-time awakenings in colds and flu patients. A cough can have a significant impact on quality of life; affecting the ability to work, sleep and function during the day. Having a good night’s sleep helps the body recover faster3.

Bronchostop Nite contains a unique combination of natural ingredients, Marshmallow root dry extract, Ribwort Plantain leaf dry extract and Lime flower dry extract. These ingredients work together to reduce the urge to cough and help you to get a better night’s sleep1,4.

The Marshmallow root dry extract and Ribwort Plantain leaf dry extract have a thick, gel like consistency which creates a soothing, protective coating on the throat to relieve local irritation and soothe inflammation1,6. Excess mucus from the nasal passages can drip down the throat (post-nasal drip) to irritate the throat lining and trigger the cough reflex2.

Mouth breathing at night can cause further dehydration and irritation of the throat lining which can increase cough receptor sensitivity and as a result increased coughing7,8.

Bronchostop Nite’s ingredients have humectant properties which help restore hydration and reduce the urge to cough1,6.

The last ingredient in Bronchostop Nite is Lime flower dry extract, which has a mild diaphoretic effect, which helps promote sweating to relieve mild feverish colds. The natural ingredients in Bronchostop Nite helps ensure a peaceful night’s sleep1,5.

According to renowned medical research group the Mayo Clinic, rest is one of the most important ways your body fights off infections. Ironically, getting enough rest can also be the hardest thing to accomplish when a patient has a nagging night-time cough9. Fortunately, Bronchostop Nite is now available in leading pharmacies countrywide.

Bronchostop Nite is suitable for the whole family from 4 years old. It is available in a strawberry flavour1 and can be purchased at Clicks, Dis-Chem and all leading independent pharmacies countrywide. Click here to buy now.
