Coughing Got You Down? Try the Best Ayurvedic Cough Syrup in India for Natural Relief

Non Drowsy Cough Syrup

Ayurvedic cough syrups are formulations that often include a combination of herbal ingredients aimed at providing relief from various symptoms associated with coughing. It is important to note that while Ayurvedic remedies are considered natural, their effectiveness may vary from person to person and every individual’s response can differ.


Here are some common Ayurvedic ingredients found in cough syrup and their potential benefits:

Tulsi (Holy Basil):

Tulsi is known for its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. It is believed to soothe the respiratory tract and relieve cough and cold symptoms. It can also be consumed in the tablet or capsule form available by the name of Tulsi Capsules online on the Pravek official website, along with other single herb range products.


Honey has natural antimicrobial properties and is often used in Ayurvedic cough syrups for its soothing effect on the throat. It helps alleviate irritation and coughing.

Ginger (Adrak):

Ginger has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It is commonly used in Ayurveda to relieve respiratory congestion and soothe the throat.

Licorice (Yashtimadhu):

Licorice is known for its demulcent properties, which means it can help soothe and coat the throat. It also has anti-inflammatory effects.

Sitopaladi Churna:

This traditional Ayurvedic herbal powder may be included in some cough syrups. It typically contains ingredients like sugar, bamboo manna, cardamom, cinnamon and long pepper. It is believed to support an individual’s respiratory health.

Vasaka (Adhatoda vasica):

Vasaka is commonly used in Ayurvedic formulations for breathing problems. It helps relieve cough, bronchitis and other respiratory issues.

Pippali (Long Pepper):

Pippali is believed to have bronchodilator and expectorant properties, making it useful in addressing respiratory congestion and cough. Bronchodilators are a type of medication that makes breathing easier by relaxing the muscles in the lungs and widening the airways (bronchi).

Bibhitaki (Terminalia bellirica):

Bibhitaki is one of the three components of Triphala and is believed to have antimicrobial properties. It also contributes to respiratory health, making it easier to breathe.

While Ayurvedic syrups offer natural relief for cough, it is important to consider the following:

Consultation: Before using any Ayurvedic remedy, it is advisable to consult with a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner or healthcare professional, especially if you have underlying health conditions or are taking medications. You can also consult with Pravek’s in-house Ayurvedic expert.

Quality and Authenticity: Ensure that the Ayurvedic syrup comes from a reputable source and the ingredients are of high quality like those in Pravek Coughkalp syrup. Authenticity and proper manufacturing practices are crucial.

Allergies and Sensitivities: Be aware of any allergies or sensitivities to specific herbs or ingredients present in the Ayurvedic cough syrup.

Besides the above-mentioned ingredients which are used in syrup forms, certain other formulations can help an individual to get relief from cough and cold:

Talisadi Churna:

Talisadi Churna is commonly used in Ayurveda for conditions such as cough, asthma, and bronchitis. It is believed to help reduce coughing frequency, relieve respiratory congestion, and promote overall respiratory well-being.

Khadiradi Vati:

Khadiradi Vati is traditionally used for conditions related to the throat and respiratory system. It is believed to have antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. Khadiradi Vati is used for sore throat, cough and other respiratory discomforts.

Lavangadi Vati:

Lavangadi Vati is an Ayurvedic herbal formulation that contains Lavanga (clove) and other ingredients. It is commonly used in Ayurveda for respiratory issues, including cough and throat-related problems.

Laxmi Vilas Ras:

Laxmi Vilas Ras is a classical Ayurvedic formulation that is traditionally used for various health conditions, including respiratory issues. It is believed to have anti-inflammatory and expectorant properties.


Vanshlochan, also known as Bamboo Silica, is a traditional Ayurvedic ingredient sometimes used in herbal formulations to address respiratory issues, including cough. While Vanshlochan is considered a natural remedy in Ayurveda, it is important to approach its use with caution and seek professional guidance to ensure it is a safe and effective incorporation into your health regimen.

Pravek Respikalp Capsules:

Pravek Respikalp Capsules are another very effective formulations that work very effectively on the respiratory health of an individual, including cough, cold, nasal blockage and sneezing.


Pravek also offers various combo packs that make it easier to choose the right product at a very reasonable price and with effective results. 

Pravek Coughkalp has been considered the best Ayurvedic cough syrup in India due to its non-drowsy quality and fast relief effects. While Ayurvedic remedies are a part of a holistic approach to health, they should not replace professional medical advice, especially for persistent or severe coughing. If coughing persists or gets worse, it is essential to seek guidance from a healthcare provider for a thorough evaluation and appropriate treatment.
