Beechams Cold + Flu Remedies
Advantages: Eases symptoms, easy to make and drink
Our medicine cabinet/cupboard is jam packed with stuff for when we have colds and flu. The last thing you feel like doing when you are not well is traipsing out to the shops to pick something up to take the edge off of it so I always make sure we have stuff available.
We have a box of Beechams Hot Lemon Cold & Flu sachets in our cupboard. There are ten sachets in a pack and each sachet is enough for one cup. The sachets come in little square cardboard box which is bright yellow and royal blue in colour. It has te Beechams name across the top and cold and flu just underneath with a list stating what it can be used for. It also has a picture of a jug of hot lemon and honey which gives the idea that this is a really soothing and comforting mixture. Beechams cold and flu says it tackles blocked nose, headache, fever, sore throat pain, aches and pains.
The sachets can be purchased in all major supermarkets and chemists. They usually cost between £2.50 and £3.00 depending on where you go.
Ingredients wise, Beechams Cold and Flu contains the following: paracetamol, phenylephrine and vitimin C. As this product contains paracetamol, you are not supposed to take any other paracetamol based products in case of overdose.
Beechams Cold & Flu mixture is easy to make and use. You simply empty the sachet of powder into a mug and pour boiling water into it and stir. It creates a really strong honey and lemon scent and it is really comforting when you feel unwell. Personally I add sugar to mine to sweeten it up as it is a little bit too bitter for me otherwise but it is down to the individual how they want it.
I always find this product to be really soothing. I only ever take it when I have a really heavy cold or the flu. You know those horrible colds/flu when you feel like you cannot even drink. That is when these come out for me. I find that the drink really soothes my throat and it eases aches and pains especially that achey feeling you get in your legs when you are really poorly. If I am taking one of these, I always drink it first thing in the morning as I always feel worse when I have just woken up. I find it eases my symptoms and allows me to feel a bit more human for a couple of hours. The effects do wear off and I never drink anymore than two in a day. The last time I had a really bad case of flu, it had cleared up in a couplle of days and I do think it is was because I was drinking this product.
I highly recommend this product.
