Echinacea Root: Echinacea helps stimulate the lymphatic system, promoting drainage and elimination of toxins, which helps to fight and prevent potential infections.
Ginkgo Biloba Leaf: Ginkgo Biloba Leaf is full of antioxidants that combat or neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals. It has anti-inflammatory properties, especially in the airways which improves lung capacity.
Licorice Root: Licorice Root has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects which is beneficial for upper respiratory conditions, soothing sore throats that are caused by allergies.
Marshmallow Root: Marshmallow Root has a high mucilaginous content that makes it useful in treating coughs, colds, bronchitis, and other respiratory tract diseases. It acts as an enzyme to loosen mucus and inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria which helps soothe sore throats and runny noses caused by allergies.
Nettle Leaf: Nettle Leaf has incredible anti-inflammatory properties that help alleviate seasonal allergy symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, and itchy eyes. Additionally, Nettle Leaf is full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals which helps defend your cells from damage caused by free radicals.
Peppermint Leaf: Peppermint Leaf has antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties that help prevent the clogging of sinus due to infections, colds and allergies. One of the active compounds in Peppermint, menthol, helps you breathe easier when you’re feeling congested.
Rooibos Leaf: Rooibos Leaf helps to relieve runny nose and itchy eyes caused by allergies because of the two bioflavonoids it contains called rutin and quercetin. These bioflavonoids block the release of histamine, which is the chemical the body produces in response to allergens. This is the same compound that over the counter antihistamines block, except the compounds in Rooibos Leaf don’t leave you feeling drowsy or with a dry mouth.
Sage Leaf: Sage Leaf is full of antioxidants which helps to defend your cells from damage caused by free radicals. Its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial help support Sage’s expectorant qualities which helps to expel mucus in the respiratory tract.
Turmeric: Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and one of its active ingredients, curcumin, helps to reduce the swelling and irritation caused by allergic rhinitis.
