This Syrup Will Stop a Cough Dead in its Tracks – Ginger Thyme Cough Syrup
Thyme is a powerful and effective disinfectant and can be used both externally (as a wash) and internally to help fight off infection. One of the best herbal cold remedies, it’s often used to help ward off colds and as a rinse to treat a sore throat and oral infections.
It also makes a fine tea for treating coughs and chest complaints and is used in many antifungal remedies. It’s rich in antioxidants (most plants are) and has a markedly tonic effect, supporting normal body functions.

A quick note from our founder
I wanted to tell you about a better and far easier way to get all your daily nutritional needs and then some into your diet...
It's so incredible, I've done the unthinkable. YES, I sold my juicer--never to juice again!
And NO I am not spending good money on outrageously expensive smoothies at those high-priced franchises or shots of wheatgrass at $5 a pop.
No this is way easier and cheaper…
In fact, each serving takes just 30 seconds to make and contains all your daily nutrition needs and more-- and at the same time, costs JUST $1.36 per serving.
You can make a glass in a snap, with water or almond milk and just a spoon or a water bottle.
Maybe best of all, each serving contains no sugar and there's no gag-reflex from the yucky taste of the dreaded green foam : )
