What are the advantages of this cough syrup?
By chance I came across a very good recipe for a cough syrup during my cold, which resulted in a cold and cough, which I then modified a little. The main ingredients are an onion and sugar candy. You don't need more for the cough syrup. The cough syrup has been shown to be very effective as my husband confirmed that I did not cough all night afterwards. I was able to sleep well. The pain in the chest when coughing up had also disappeared.
Another advantage is that this cough syrup does not contain alcohol or any chemicals. Furthermore, the ingredients are very inexpensive and the cough syrup is made in no time. If you don't have sugar candy on hand, you can try normal table sugar. I assume that since both are considered sugar, this will work.
What ingredients do I need for the cough syrup?
1 Handful of sugar candy
300 ml of boiling water
How is the cough syrup prepared?
Cut the onion into small cubes. Put the sugar candy and the onion cubes in a saucepan. Pour on the boiling and simmer for five minutes until the sugar candy has completely dissolved.
Then let the mixture cool and strain into a closable jar with a lid over a sieve. Now your cough syrup is ready and you can drink it 1-3 times a day, preferably in the morning and before going to sleep.
For which people are the cough syrup suitable / not suitable?
Since onion allergies are not so common, this cough syrup is also suitable for allergy sufferers. Also, for abstainers from alcohol, since it contains no alcohol. However, people who just want to follow a reduced-calorie diet should only drink this cough syrup once a day if there are very severe symptoms (2-3 sips are enough). This cough syrup is not suitable for diabetics due to the high sugar content. The sugar would drive up the blood sugar level rapidly.
I wish you a quick, good recovery from your complaints!
