The finding of a natural source for treatment of Cough without induced side effects has encountered many obstacles, many ingredients showed initially the promising result in animal studies have not produced same potentials in either large sample size and mutli centers human trials.
Orange(1) and Wolfberry(4) Juice and Honey(6) in recent studies by renowned institution suggested that the combined ingredients may consist a potential effect for production of natural alternation in treating respiratory disease, including cough.

Cough is a continued reflection and natural reaction of lung to clear the large breathing passages from secretions, irritants, foreign particles, etc. or as a result of infection such as acute (less than 3 weeks) or chronic (over 5 weeks) respiratory diseases.Vitamin C, also known as L-ascorbic acid, a water-soluble vitamin, found abundantly in orange juice, is best known for its free radical scavengers activity and regenerating oxidized vitamin E for immune support in reduced risk of "morning cough", "chronic cough", "wheeze" and "wheeze ever(1).

According to the National Institute of Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), intake of vitamin C exhibited protective effects against respiratory symptoms in comparison to those with lower intake(2).

Dr.Goldman RD at the Canadian Paediatric Society, Drug Therapy and Hazardous Substances Committee, suggested, use of over counter medicine for treatment of cough in adult populations when cough frequency and severity, may cause medication errors and adverse events(3). Therefore, cough and cold therapies should consider intake of vitamin C and other forms of natural sources instead(3).

Wolfberry, also known as lycium fruits is the common name for the fruit of two very closely related species, the genus of Lycium, belongings to family Solanaceae, native to native to southeastern Europe and Asia. has been found effective in treatment of various human infectious diseases, including cough, according to the Hazara University Mansehra, Pakistan(4).

Dr. Cassileth B, professor at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, said, " The berries of Lycium barbarum, a perennial plant native to Asia and southeastern Europe, have been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine to treat poor vision, anemia, inflammation, and cough"(6).
The fruit water extract also exhibited anti-inflammatory effect for treatment of cough through suppression of pro inflammatory cytokines(5).
Honey, the rich golden liquid is the miraculous product made by bees using nectar from flowers, is considered as one of healthy sweet food for replacing the use of white sugar and artificial sweetener by many people. Recently, it is considered as effective treatment of childhood cough, persistent post-infectious cough, according to the joint study lead by the Maastricht University Medical Center (MUMC)(7).

Dr. Ran D. Goldman, at the the College of Family Physicians of Canada said, "There is increasing evidence that a single dose of honey might reduce mucus secretion and reduce cough in children."(8).
In the study of honey for acute cough in children, Dr. Oduwole O and the research team at the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital (ITDR/P), insisted (without consideration of the adverse effect of conventional medicine of dextromethorphan) that honey may be better than 'no treatment' and diphenhydramine in the symptomatic relief of cough but not better than dextromethorphan(9).

Orange juice, containing the highest amount of vitamin C in comparison to other fruits may mimic the similar effects when use conjunction with wolf berry and honey for reduced risk and treatment of cough with no adverse effects.
