Historical overview

Conifers (evergreens) produce several health promoting substances. Pine needles are used in distillates for their creosote content (efficient but very irritating and with controversial safety concerns). Fresh Spruce bud extract is very efficient against upper respiratory tract infections (URTI) but much less irritating and with a better taste (which is always a plus, especially when children are involved!). Spruce bud extract is used for all catarrhs of the respiratory tract.
Nicolas Culpeper (1616-1654) mentions: « It is of a mollifying, healing, and cleansing nature (…) It is likewise a good pectoral, and often given in diseases of the breast and lungs. »(1)

Actions and pharmacology

Spruce buds are rich in terpenes (bornyl acetate, limonene, camphene, alpha-pinene, etc.). These small molecules have antiseptic, mucolytic and antibacterial properties. Terpenes are particularly interesting in cases of cough and bronchial infections because of their volatility, which promotes pulmonary excretion. The effects of terpenes are therefore concentrated at the site of action, thus increasing the respiratory effectiveness of Spruce buds.(2) The German Commission E acknowledges its benefits in cases of: catarrhs of the respiratory tract.

Scientific studies

Santasapina® (A.Vogel Soothing Cough Syrup in Canada) has been studied in 83 children with acute mucopurulent bronchitis. During the 8-10 day treatment period, coughs and night waking rapidly decreased, the mucus liquefied, its coloration became clearer and the expectoration improved. The treatment efficacy was considered good (68.7% good and 16.9% average by the physician, and 77.1% good and 9.6% average by the patients and their parents). 75% of the children said they would take the syrup again. Only 3 of the 83 children did not like its taste.(3)
