Medical indication: HONEYTHYME is recommended for upper-respiratory tract problems (dry and productive coughs, asthma, bronchitis and laryngitis). It has strong antibacterial and antifungal effects.
Medicinal ingredients: Thyme extract contains essential oils (e.g. thymol and carvacrol), flavones, saponins, and tannins. Natural honey sweetens the syrup, softens the throat and has anti-cough and antibacterial effects. The syrup has been standardized at 0.06 mg/ml thymol.
Pharmacology: It is well-known that thymol and carvacol have relaxant effects on ileal as well as tracheal smooth muscles through triggering secretion of acetylcholine and histamine. Also, flavones share the same mechanisms in the thyme extract. Secretomotoric activities of thyme extract due to its volatile and saponin compounds are substantiated. Antimicrobial effects of thyme extract in common cold are very well documented in the literature. This is because of the presence of phenolic compounds (e.g. thymol and carvacrol) in the extract which makes it 25 times more potent than phenol with much less toxicity.
