Eucabal 100 ml Pharmacotherapeutic group
Remedies used for coughs and colds. ATX code R05C A10.
Substances contained in liquid extracts of both plantain and thyme (thyme), in particular essential oils, as expectorants affect the properties, formation and transport of bronchial secretions.
There is both an indirect reflex effect through the gastric mucosa and a direct effect of essential oils on the bronchial glands, which enhances their activity. This helps to increase, thin and dissolve bronchial secretions, as well as increase the transport of secretions through the ciliated epithelium. This is especially important in the later stages of acute bronchitis and in chronic bronchitis, when there is increased secretion of viscous mucus by the submucosal glands. In addition, essential oils due to their surface activity reduce the binding capacity of highly viscous mucus on the tracheobronchial mucosa.
Thyme is characterized by a pronounced antimicrobial potential of thymol and carvacrol. Plant mucous substances of plantain help protect the damaged bronchial mucosa from further irritation.
Symptomatic treatment of inflammatory diseases of the respiratory tract. An expectorant for the symptomatic treatment of productive cough. Supportive agent for whooping cough.
