What is Bronchosan Pine Cough Syrup?
Bronchosan is one of Alfred Vogel’s oldest remedies. It is a cough syrup containing the extracts of freshly harvested pine (or spruce) shoots as well as honey. Young pine shoots, picked in spring when the needles are still green and soft, have been used for many decades as a traditional remedy for dry, tickly or irritating coughs.
