Leftose® Syrup is formulated to make it easy for children to consume, as some children are unable to chew or swallow tablets. It is also tasty to drink, making it easy for parents to administer it to the children. Adults can take it as well, but most adults prefer the convenience of taking tablets or lozenges.
The main active ingredient is Lysozyme Hydrochloride, a natural enzyme derived from egg white. Lysozyme Hydrochloride can also be found in our bodies in tears, saliva, breastmilk and the nasal mucus.
Lysozyme Hydrochloride has two actions. Firstly, it helps to thin and break down clingy phlegm from air passage walls, making it easier to cough the phlegm out; secondly, to help relieve the symptoms of sore throat by reducing swelling and throat discomfort.
Leftose® is made from Lysozyme Hydrochloride, which is derived from egg white, and may not be suitable for those with egg allergies.
