Benefits of Pulmo-Fast 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:
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 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 the airways of mucus. Chaparral is also a 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 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 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.
Oregano contains carvacrol and rosmarinic acid. Both compounds are natural decongestants and histamine reducers that have direct, positive benefits on the respiratory tract and nasal passage airflow.
Whenever dust, moulds, pollen, and toxic gases get into your lungs, your body releases histamine to prevent them from doing any more damage. But as a result, your body develops either allergies or allergy-like symptoms. You start sneezing and coughing, produce more mucus than usual, develop nasal congestion, and have difficulty breathing. Oregano can help reduce the severity of these symptoms because it has rosmarinic acid – a natural antihistamine. The herb also contains thymol, terpenes, and carvacrol which can effectively eradicate fungi and different types of bacteria from your lungs.
In addition to its antihistamine, antibacterial, and fungicidal benefits, oregano is a natural decongestant. Research by the ENT Department of the Israel Institute of Technology discovered that oregano – along with other aromatic herbs – improved airflow along the nasal passages. Oregano can therefore assist in clearing out your lungs of any excess mucus.
Mullein (Verbascum thapsus)
Mullein is a herbal extract that helps strengthen the lungs. Mullein is used by herbal practitioners to clear excess mucus from the lungs, cleanse the bronchial tubes, and reduce inflammation that is present in the respiratory tract. Mullein is a useful remedy for dry, irritated lung conditions or a dry, raspy throat. The leaf is an expectorant and a demulcent which encourages secretions in dry mucus membranes.
Mullein is a natural expectorant. It contains saponins which break down mucus in the lungs and airways and reduces nasal congestion. The demulcent effects of the plant are also noteworthy. It has soothing properties which effectively calm irritated lungs and airways caused by exposure to air impurities.
Arjuna Bark Extract
Arjuna improves heart function and increases circulation throughout the body and lungs. The increased circulation delivers more oxygen throughout the body.
