How are the herbs in Pulmo-Fast beneficial for the respiratory system?
Herbs that support lung health typically do so by offering one or more of the following benefits:
Acting as an expectorant — which helps break up and expel chest congestion. Soothing irritated nasal passages and airways. Relaxing the muscles near the upper respiratory system to quell a cough. Calming the release of histamines. Fighting the harmful organisms that can produce upper respiratory problems. As a source of antioxidants, reducing oxidative damage and redness.
Composition of Pulmo-Fast:
Astralagus Root A clinical study of astragalus's preventing the recurrence of asthma in children found that Astragalus played a role in preventing the recurrence of asthma. The combination of astragalus and hormones showed better effects.
Chaparral Chaparral is used by the Native Americans for lung detoxification and respiratory support. Chaparral contains powerful antioxidants that resist irritation and NDGA which is known to fight histamine response. Chaparral supports respiratory problems by encouraging an expectorant action to clear airways of mucus. Chaparral is also an herb that fights harmful organisms.
Boswellia can play a role in reducing leukotrienes, which causes bronchial muscles to contract. A study of the herb’s effect on bronchial asthma found that patients who took boswellia experienced decreased asthma symptoms and asthma indicators. This 1998 German study showed the herb could play an important role in treating bronchial asthma.
Lobelia Lobelia contains an alkaloid known as lobeline, which thins mucus, breaks up congestion. Additionally, lobelia stimulates the adrenal glands to release epinephrine, in effect, this relaxes the airways and allows for easier breathing. Lobeline is an alkaloid and the main component behind the Indian tobacco’s lung benefits. It promotes the expulsion of phlegm by loosening and thinning mucus found in the lungs and air passages. Lobeline opens up the airways since it is a bronchodilator.
Lobelia Inflata is especially useful for asthma, bronchitis, and other Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Diseases (COPDs). Ironically, Indian tobacco may be used to prevent tobacco withdrawal in people who want to quit smoking.
Elecampane (Inula helenium) Elecampane has a relaxing effect on smooth tracheal muscles. There are two active compounds in elecampane root that provide the beneficial effect — inulin, which soothes bronchial passage, and alantolactone, an expectorant with antitussive action. Elecampane can be used as a respiratory tonic and can also help to speed the recovery process for lingering lung infections. It is specific for respiratory conditions with excessive bronchial secretions, such as bronchitis, and for irritation of the trachea and bronchi that results in persistent and irritable coughing. Elecampane exerts a soothing expectorant action, but also acts as an astringent to reduce excess mucous.
