Harker Herbals Expectorant Support 250ml


Malcolm Harker’s Expectorant Support, formerly known as Linctus Expectus is a combination elixir of herbs that help to loosen thick mucous and therefore assist with treatment of chest infections. Herbs used traditionally for their demulcent containing polysaccharides help to loosen the mucous by reflex thereby helping to expel mucous easily. Containing herbs such as Elecampane, Comfrey and Marshmallow, plus the oils of peppermint, pine and eucalyptus that penetrate into congestive lung tissues to loosen catarrh, dissolve phlegm  and aid in the removal of phlegm, its other properties come from the Cayenne pepper and Ginger which help reduce platelet formation. It is pleasant for children, adults and the elderly.

Use alongside antibiotics or as a standalone for a cough associated with a cold or flu.
