HOW KUFMA JUNIOR SYRUP WORKS

KUFMA JUNIOR SYRUP contains chlorpheniramine, paracetamol, phenylephrine, and sodium citrate. Chlorpheniramine is an antihistamine that blocks the effect of histamines (chemicals produced by the body in response to allergens) and prevents the release of allergy-causing chemicals that are responsible for the symptoms of itching in the eyes, watery eyes, sneezing, running, or a blocked nose.

Paracetamol blocks chemical messengers in the brain that regulate pain and heat, thus helping to relieve fever and pain. Phenylephrine is a nasal decongestant that helps to increase sinus cavity drainage and relieve nasal congestion.

Sodium citrate is added to cough syrup as a mucolytic, which thins and loosens mucus, making it easier to cough out. Thus, KUFMA JUNIOR SYRUP helps to relieve the symptoms of a cold, cough, pain, and aches.
