Check Before Consuming: Most Cough Syrups Contain This Harmful…
A heart wrenching but an enlightening video of a mother about the latest cough syrups ban. Big pharma companies are notorious to pressurize the legal and the political system to get approval for banned drugs. This is proved yet again by the recent Government of India ban on 344 drug combinations which included most of the cough syrups.The reason behind the ban of cough syrups is that they contain a combination of chlorpheniramine maleate and codeine. Codeine is a sleep-inducing and analgesic drug derived from morphine. While cough syrups are largely consumed by children, they unknowingly become addicted to codeine, which is a compound found in opium. There are also evidences that codeine doesn't actually help in cough suppression, whereas it has a long list of side-effects including vomiting, constipation, itchiness and lightheadedness. While most of the codeine-based and over-the-counter cough syrups have been banned, a question remains on which cough syrup to choose to cure general cough problems. Ayurveda has always been a good and effective cure for several health problems. The ayurvedic herbal formulation is free of any addictive components which can induce side-effects.We urge drug manufacturers to come up with cough syrups that are ayurvedic in nature, made up of herbal components and codeine-free.

If you have been keeping up with the news lately, you must have come across the news of the Indian government banning 344 drugs recently.
These include very famous and everyday medicines that we use almost regularly without prescriptions or a doctor’s advice like codeine (found in cough syrups), nimesulide (found in anti-inflammatory drugs) and etc. The ban comes into effect questioning the ability of the drugs.
Small ailments like cold, coughs and sore throats actually help in building up a healthy immune system.
The use of antibiotics (over-the-counter drugs) actually slows down and eventually lowers immunity, a fact that is now claimed by many and backed up by science. In brief, when your immune system is under attack, it builds up its own resistance to fight back the antigens and produces antibodies. Taking of antibiotics disrupts in your body’s regular functions of producing antibodies.
This video shows a mother’s earnest plea to awaken you to the fact that taking a medicine readily available in the markets is not the best solution for ailments that our body is capable of fighting on its own.
And with a ban imposed on so many drugs, switching to Ayurveda and Ayurvedic medicines will just be the wisest move to make. Ayurveda has never let us down in the past. Why would it do so now?
