Breakthrough in Treating Cough: Carbocisteine plus Zinc

Learn more about this innovation by Unilab!

Did you know cough is usually a sign of a weakened immune system? Zinc levels are low, which leaves one vulnerable to infection and may prolong recovery period.


Drinking lots of fluids and getting enough rest are recommended when recovering from cough. Stay indoors or wear a mask when going outside to prevent spreading the virus. It is also recommended to wash your hands often using soap and water.

If symptoms persist or if you are having a hard time expelling phlegm, your doctor may prescribe a mucolytic like carbocisteine. It is a known mucolytic that is proven to effectively make phlegm less sticky and easier to cough up and expel.

Zinc and cough

Aside from carbocisteine, medical journals also studied how zinc supplementation can also reduce the incidence of acute respiratory illnesses. Zinc helps boost immune function and reduces the risk of infections. Studies show that patients who had adequate zinc levels in their bodies suffered from shorter bouts of pneumonia and fewer days of antibiotic use.
