Beechams Cold + Flu Remedies
Advantages: Helps with blocked nose, throat, tastes okay, warm, Vitamin C.
The dreaded cold and flu virus is something that affects everyone from time to time, and I am no exception, in fact I seem to suffer it more often than I'd like! As a result I always have a box of Beechams Cold + Flu sachets stored in my medicine cupboard at home; as I personally find that these seem to work better than other brands on the market.
Beechams Cold + Flu sachets come in a lemon yellow coloured rectangular box. The box contains ten sachets of lemon powder that you basically empty into a cup and add hot water, which once mixed looks a nice yellow colour. It is possible to add sugar or sweetener to add taste, but I personally do not feel the need too as usually when I have these I can't taste much of anything anyway due to my cold. The added factor of being a nice warm drink really helped when I had the cold shivers, and as result felt instantly nice and warmth when drinking.
The main aim of Beechems is to relieve cold flu symptoms such a; sore throats, fevers, blocked nose, headache, painful sinuses, aching body and cold shivers.
I found that these were a great help for me when trying to recover from a cold. The drink is lemon flavoured, but not a very strong tasting lemon flavour which is great for me as I am not the biggest fan of lemon flavoured things. It contains pheylephine which helps relieve blocked nose and sinuses, and extracts of vitamin C which helps the immune system fight off the flu infection. It also contains Paracetemol which is the active ingredient in the Beechems cold and flu medicine that lowers temperatures and eases some of the cold flu symptoms. These are also non-drowsy which is great, and means I can take them at any time of the day without worrying if it is going to effect my driving etc.
I found these to work really well, and after just 20 minutes I could instantly feel my symptoms ease; nose become less runny and not as blocked, and my throat did not feel as dry or swollen. The effects would last a good few hours, and allow me to feel a bit more like myself and less ill.
I brought these for around £3 from Asda. Although they are quite pricey, I found that they were of great benefit when it came to temporary easing my cold flu symptoms, so therefore I would definitely purchase this again when the next flu virus decides to attack me!
