Symptoms such as throat inflammation, painful and difficulty swallowing are particularly common in this period. To this symptoms, we can add the hoarseness and changed own voice, which we even ourselves can not recognize. The most common causes of these symptoms are viral and bacterial infections of the upper respiratory tract, and straining vocal cordes worsens the condition. On the other hand, the air polution with harmful substances (gases, smoke, dust particles, allergens…), can affect the mucous membrane of the upper respiratory tract.
Lichen islandicus – help from nature
The Lichen islandicus has been used in traditional medicine since the 17th century for the treatment of cough and throat inflammation. For medical purposes, it was first used on Iceland, but its usage spread very rapidly to other countries, so today it is one of the most popular herbal products for dry cough and, in general, inflammatory conditions of the throat.
The main active ingredients of the lichen are bitter substances and mucins that cover the irritated and damaged mucous membranes of the upper respiratory tract and thus prevent the irritation to cough, scratching in the throat and swelling.
In addition, the active components of Lichen islandicus have a preventive role, so they can be used on a regular basis by people who are prone to problems such as dry mucous membranes of the mouth and throat, which are often troubled by dry, irritating cough, hoarseness or throat scrachting.
Isla Moos® is one of the oldest pharmaceutical products in Germany. In 1860, the founder of Engelhard, Karl Filip Engelhard, developed and produced “Isla moos pasta”, which became a favorite and well-known product, from which the Isla® pastilles were developed later on.
Isla® pastilles gradually dissolve in the mouth and release the active components that create the protective mucilaginous layer on the surface of the mucous membranes. Isla® pastilles act locally on the throat and throat mucosa and provide protection, care and regeneration of the throat mucosa.
Isla® pastilles exist in several flavors – Isla® moos, mild, herbal flavor; Isla® cassis, the taste of black currant with the addition of vitamin C, Isla® mint, taste of mint; Isla® Ginger, the taste of ginger with the addition of honey.
