Solmux Advance is the First of its Kind in the World that Combines Carbocisteine and Zinc for Faster Recovery from Cough

cough is a reflex action to clear your airways of mucus and irritants

We all cough from time to time and it's basically a normal and natural reflex of our body to clear our airways of mucus, smoke and other irritants. But when your cough is more than a frog in your throat and it becomes persistent and starts showing symptoms of respiratory track infection, what would you do? With the recent Novel Corona Virus or NCov2019 scare, a new strain of virus that's said to be contagious and fatal--an outbreak of respiratory illness that began in Wuhan, China which have been growing in number and has reached the country recently, we all need to be vigilant. 

Everyone's scared of the NCov Virus nowadays

We rarely pay attention to a cough as most of us believe it goes away on its own after a few days. But cough as it is shouldn't be taken lightly, especially when it is persistent. Thank God for the research of our folks from UNILAB,  a pharmaceutical company that's been trusted by Filipinos for 40 years and counting which created a unique drug that will aid you back to good health in no time.

UNILAB  introduces SOLMUX ADVANCE. It's an over-the-counter medicine that provides complementary action against Respiratory Track Infection addressing both sticky, hard to expel phelgm and lowered immunity when one is sick.

What makes SOLMUX ADVANCE different? 
"We combined Carbocisteine and Zinc in one capsule, it's the first of its kind in the Philippines and in the world to come up with two potent ingredients in one capsule," says Joyce Santos, head of Research and Development of UNILAB Inc. "Carbocisteine is a household remedy to provide relief from cough with phelgm and it has also been recognized as an effective treatment for management of chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD). Several studies also show that this mucolytic has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties."

"Zinc, on the other hand is a known nutrient that people need to stay healthy. It is found in cells throughout the body and it helps the immune system fight off invading bacteria and viruses. The body needs zinc to make proteins and DNA, the generic material in all cells," explains Santos. 

The body's immune system needs zinc to do its job. Senior Citizens and children usually have low levels of zinc might have higher risk of getting pneumonia and other infections. Foods like red meat, poultry, oysters and other seafood as well as fortified breakfast cereals are good sources of Zinc and so does beans, nuts, grains and dairy products. 

Dr. Gwen Agra, MD, a pulmonologist and internist adds, "When patients have secondary infection, especially in the susceptible population, this may be reflective of a weakened immune system. Zinc levels are lowered, which leaves us vulnerable and may prolong our recovery period. Which is why, i usually co-prescribe minerals like Zinc with mucolytic like Carbocisteine. Together, this is an ideal combination that effectively relieves cough by aiding in expulsion of hard and sticky phelgm with decreased bacterial adhesion to cells and helping in faster recovery by boosting immunity."

"Combining the two (Carbocisteine + Zinc) was a lot of hard work. We went into lab development of the product. We have to ensure that the product is safe, stable, effective and of consistent quality. The product should be easy to take to ensure high patient compliance. UNILAB  provides trusted quality healthcare. That was the hard part. The development of the product depends on its complexity. A drug product takes time to develop  and be introduced into the market in compliance with FDA standards," explains Santos. 

Carbocisteine + Zinc can be found together in Solmux Advance
Indeed, This innovative product from UNILAB is good news for consumers like us. Instead of buying two different products (carbocisteine medicine) and zinc food supplements when one has cough with phelgm, we'd be able to save money when we purchase UNILAB's SOLMUX ADVANCE since it has both potent ingredients in one easy to swallow capsules. 

An innovative product from UNILAB is SOLMUX ADVANCE combining carbocisteine and zinc in one capsule!
Remember, when you have coughs with phlegm, take Solmux Advance, it's about time we take the phlegm out and put the zinc in! 

Solmux Advance is initially available only in the Philippines. It is an OTC medicine (which means you don't need to have prescription to purchase them)which has no adverse effects and can be taken even without meals (except for acidic patients) by patients 13 years of age and above. With 40 years as a trusted brand by most Filipino household, UNILAB takes pride in introducing Solmux Advance to the public. It is now available at all leading drug stores nationwide. 

Solmux Advance with Zinc prides itself as a unique cough solution combining the two powerful molecules of Carbocisteine and Zinc--phlegm solution and immunity boosting mineral to aid faster recovery.
