Lagundex Syrup: natural & equally effective to cure cough & colds


Summer is no holiday for cough and colds

Finally, it’s summer! Time to carry out that vacation you’ve been planning for the whole family. But before you go ahead with your travel preparations, there are more important things you have to consider.

During summer, the weather may become erratic — from an extremely hot day to sudden downpours. These unexpected weather changes cause cough and cold viruses spread easily, giving you flu-like symptoms similar to what you experience during rainy season.

Do not let your family’s summer outing be interrupted with cough and colds. Keep your family safe by reminding them to wash their hands frequently, eat a balanced diet, get plenty of sleep, stay well-hydrated, exercise regularly and avoid contact with sick people.

If someone from your family catches summer cough and colds, here are safe, natural and equally effective ways to cure it:

  1.             Take plenty of fluids. Aside from the summer heat, cough and colds bring dehydration. Drinking water is important to keep fluids and flush toxins from the body. This also maintains the body’s electrolyte balance. One good source of hydration and electrolytes is chicken soup. Though it may sound weird to take something hot during summer, chicken soup helps reduce inflammation and make mucus thinner.
  2.             Rest and relax. When you notice that you’re feeling sick, do not ignore it and go on with your normal, daily routine. Slow down and rest so it won’t get worse. But if you can’t take the day off, at least try to go to bed earlier than usual.
  3.             Hot showers. Taking hot baths can be the worst possible feeling, especially when it’s really hot outside. But its steam works like a natural decongestant which relieves cold 
  4. Avoid caffeine, salty, spicy food and refined sugars. Caffeine, usually found in coffee, tea and chocolate, is a psychoactive stimulant drug which dehydrates the body. As being hydrated is important to treat cough and colds, caffeine should be avoided. Also, excessive intake of salty, spicy food and refined sugars speed up the body’s system, causing dehydration as well.
  5. Take symptoms. It lessens sinus pressure, moisturizes nasal passages and soothes itchy throat. It Lagundi leaf (Vitex negundo L.) cough syrup. Combat cough and colds with Lagundi leaf (Vitex negundo L.), a herbal product extensively studied and trusted by the Department of Health. Developed by a group of Filipino scientists, it only uses indigenous lagundi plants, making it truly and proudly a Filipino product.


Lagundex, a brand of Lagundi leaf, is guaranteed safe as it strictly complies with the manufacturing requirements of the Philippine Food and Drug Administration. It is manufactured under Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) with certified facilities to ensure its quality and efficacy.

Lagundex 300 mg/5 mL syrup comes in sweet orange and peppermint flavors suited for kids, while the Lagundex Forte 600 mg/5 mL syrup in soothing mint flavor and Lagundex 600 mg tablet are ideal for adults. These are available in leading drugstores.
