A clinical trial of over 5,000 children ages 2-12 tested the effects of an ivy leaf extract to treat coughs.
71% of the children had intense coughing fits.
50% were coughing several times an hour.
61% had problems with coughs at night.
Results after using the ivy extract for 7-14 days:
Children with coughing caused by a viral respiratory infection saw their coughing frequency decline by 50% and coughing at night stopped almost entirely.
Children with cough associated with bronchitis had a 30% reduction in coughing intensity and also a near elimination of coughing at night.
No adverse events were reported.
Dosage: Children can take ½ teaspoon of ivy and thyme syrup up to four times a day, to help with cough from colds or bronchitis.
