Broculyt

Ambroxol Hydrochloride BP 15 mg/5 ml
Syrup
Description:

Broculyt(Ambroxol Hydrochloride) is the active metabolite of bromhexine and it has been proven that this metabolite possesses a greater bronchosecretolytic effect than bromhexine. It liquefies the mucus in the lumen of respiratory tract, thus facilitates the expectoration of mucus and reduces dyspnoea. It stimulates production of phospholipids of surfactant by alveolar cells, thus contributing to the lowering of superficial tension in the alveoli. It also reduces bronchial hyperactivity. Owing to the inhibitory effect on the production of cellular cytokines and arachidonic acid metabolites, Ambroxol has anti-inflammatory properties.
