Observations

The natural ingredients used (onion, honey, lemon) to improve the cough have soothing and expectorant properties that help eliminate phlegm and cure irritation.

Onion is known as one of the most efficient natural expectorants. This helps to eliminate bacteria and cleanse the airways.

This remedy also acts as an antibiotic that fights the microorganisms that attacked the airways.

Shelf life and storage: it is recommended that the syrup be consumed as soon as possible after preparation, ideally up to 48 hours. That is why it is recommended to prepare a small amount for 1-2 days.
The syrup will preferably be stored in the refrigerator, and if it is hermetically sealed and not walked on, it can last up to 1 month. Once opened, it is recommended to be consumed in a maximum of 7 days (stored in the refrigerator). Be careful not to be too cold when administering the syrup: either let the spoon warm for a few minutes, or hold it in your mouth until it warms up, and then swallow it.
If the prepared amount is small, for 1-2 days, you can keep the syrup at room temperature, tightly closed, away from light and direct heat, in ventilated places.

Administration

Take 1 tablespoon 3-4 times a day, 30 minutes before meals.
