About Cough.

The respiratory tract is kept moist by a layer of mucus that coats the entire surface. It needs to be kept moist, particularly lower in the tract, to allow the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide. Mucus is produced by special cells in the mucous membranes. The mucus also traps small particles from the inhaled air, keeping them from reaching further into the lungs. The mucus itself is removed from the passages by the movement of the cilia (hair-like structures on the cells lining the airways), towards the throat. (The mucus and the entrapped particles are either swallowed or coughed to the exterior.) This is a normal, healthy and self-cleansing process. Coughing is a normal protective reflex.

How Broncafect keeps you healthy:

  • Supports the body's natural ability to break up respiratory secretions, encourages healthy removal of mucus from the respiratory tract. Pleurisy Root, White Horehound, Licorice and Ginger have all been used traditionally to support healthy bronchial function, thereby helping the body to expel mucus and foreign particles from the bronchial tubes more easily. White Horehound in particular, may do this by helping to soften and break up the mucus.

  • Supports the body's normal cough reflex. The pungent, warming nature of Ginger and essential oil of Thyme support the normal cough reflex, providing comfort during cold weather and seasonal changes. Ginger is thought to assist in this way by promoting blood circulation, thereby promoting healthy blood flow in the rnucosal tissues of the lung. Pleurisy Root is often traditionally combined with Ginger for this purpose, and these herbs may also assist the body in maintaining normal body temperature. Due to their action on bronchial function, Pleurisy Root, White Horehound, Licorice and Ginger would also support the body's normal cough reflex, particularly Licorice with documented use dating back centuries! Native Americans used Pleurisy Root, White Horehound and Echinacea root in this way.

  • Assists the body's immune response. The root of Echinacea purpurea was used by the Native Americans to enhance immune system function. A placebo-controlled trial found that Echinacea purpurea root assists the body's immune response by helping with normal phagocytosis (this involves certain white blood cells that engulf and digest foreign particles).

So, Broncafect can help to:

  • support healthy respiratory tract function
  • maintain healthy mucosal tissue
  • support normal mucus flow
  • support the body's natural ability to break up respiratory secretions
  • support the body's normal cough reflex
  • encourage a healthy environment to help maintain normal respiratory flora
  • enhance immune system function
  • promote healthy white blood cells
  • promote healthy throat tissue
  • assist the body in maintaining normal body temperature within a normal range
  • promote the body's normal resistance function
