How does CoughNer® work?
CoughNer® spray forms a protective layer on the sensitive tissue of the throat, which directly relieves a sore throat. CoughNer® spray is based on the patented 2QR-complex. This natural substance is derived from plants and consists of molecules called polysaccharides. The 2QR-complex provides a physical block to bacteria by binding itself to the receptors of the pathogenic-bacteria, preventing them from adhering to the throat mucosa. By this anti-adhesive mode of action, 2QR-complex polysaccharides support the natural healing process and thus eliminates the discomforts of inflamed tissue (sensitivity, redness, swelling and irritation).
