Did you know?

Babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers get sick 8 to 10 times a year. For kindergartners, that number can rise to 12 times a year. Teens and adults tend to get sick 2 to 4 times a year. The bottom line—we all need to be prepared!


How does dried ivy leaf extract work?


  1. Dried ivy leaf extract, the active ingredient in Prospan by Helixia, liquefies the sticky mucus trapped in the airways of the lungs.
  2. It then acts as an expectorant, allowing the mucus to be coughed up more easily.
  3. The air passages relax and widen. As a result, it helps you breathe better.
