Both my husband and I have benefited greatly from taking this product. It soothes the chest, makes breathing easier and stops coughing. Helped me no end when I had a bout of bronchitis just before Christmas. My husband is on post-stroke medication that makes him cough at night. This product has eliminated his coughing and lets us both sleep. It's quite thick so we find it best to take it from a spoon. Don't mind the taste either. Highly recommend it.
