Detailed information

The synergy of the compound from natural sources of our MELICINAL Plant & Honey Syrup turns this product into a mix of high-quality ingredients:

Honey has been traditionally used on many cultures for thousands of years, is rich in essential nutrients, and provides extra energy to the diet.

Propolis, another natural product obtained from bees, is a resin that has a high content of phenolic compounds (5,6).

Elderberries (Sambucus nigra) are rich in antioxidants, our extract is certified in anthocyanidins (1); also, elderberry improves blood circulation (7).

The fruit of acerola (Malpighia glabra) is very rich in vitamin C, our extract is certified at 25% in vitamin C, which contributes to a normal function of the immune system (4) and helps decrease tiredness and fatigue (8).

Echinacea (Echinacea purpurea) is certified at 4% in polyphenols and contributes to the function of the natural defence system (2). This plant produces a pleasant and relaxing effect on the throat, pharinx and vocal cords (9).

Pomegranate (Punica granatum) extract is standardized in punicalagins, the most-studied antioxidant compound of pomegranate (10).

Furthermore, the different actions of the essential oils complete the formula of the Plant & Honey Syrup: the lemon essential oil causes a pleasant and relaxing effect in the throat, pharinx and vocal cords (11). This action is caused by eucalyptus essential oil (12)and mint essential oil(13). Eucalyptus and thyme essential oil also contribute to the destruction of pathogenic micro-organisms (14-15). Finally, mint essential oil helps improve nasal airflow, i.e., breathing (16).
