Honey is one of the ingredients of the cough sweets; this ingredient has been used for many years as a remedy for cough and sore throat. A study done in 2007 has found that honey is even far more effective as a sore throat remedy compared to OTC cough suppressants. It has also excellent antibiotic properties, which is why a lot of moms swear by it.

Lemon is also a great ingredient to help soothe colds and flu. The citrus fruit also goes great with honey; in fact, they are usually used together with warm water. Lemon is rich in vitamin C, which helps strengthen the immune system.

Ginger has also been long used as a cough remedy. Ginger is said to contain oleoresin, which acts as a cough suppressant. It also helps strengthen the immune system, just like lemon. The cough sweets also contain ground cloves, which are said to help ease the pain that comes with sore throat.
