Your best defense against colds, flus,
coughs and seasonal allergies.
What causes chest congestion?
Once a bacteria, virus or allergen enters the respiratory tract, the body coats them in mucus to destroy and remove them. To expel the built-up mucus, the body begins to induce a cough. At the same time, histamine molecules are released by white blood cells as a part of the body’s inflammatory response. Once released, blood vessels dilate, tissues begin to swell and additional immune cells are recruited to the area. All of this crowding and swelling results in chest congestion.

Synthetic chemical guaifenesin
How It Works
