Read The Ingredients

I'll just live with the cough, thank you.

A company in La Florida, Chile is producing and selling a cough remedy made with snail slime.

Maria Sannino, owner of the snail farm told Las Ultimas Noticias: "I have more than 8500 snails working so we can get material for this ancient cough medicine recipe.

"The snail slime has antibiotic property as well as antibacterial and anti-inflammation ones."

The medicine is called Karacoflu and has artificial flavour of strawberry and avocado.
