Herbs for Lungs


This formula contains herbs for lungs that support the body’s normal response to virus contact and other herbs that support lung health.


Elder leaf and Elderberry (Sambucus nigra) are blended with toning and strengthening herbs for lungs in a wonderful blend that will support the entire respiratory system. It has a slight expectorant effect that will help clear the lungs.

This 4 or 8 ounce package of herbs contains…

Prime herbs for lung health are Elder leaf and elder berry (Sambucus nigra), mullein (Verbascum thapsus), plantain leaf (Plantago major), peppermint (Mentha piperita), elecampane (Inula helenium), red clover blossom & herb (Trifolium pratense), licorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra), Orange Peel, and Yarrow (Achillea millefolium)

✿ Elder leaf: *Herbalist Stephen Buhner has recently added this herb to his core pandemic virus kit. Studies indicate that elder improves T cell counts as the virus works to down-regulate our innate immune responses to the virus, an excellent herb for lungs.

✿ Mullein: Mullein is one of the oldest known and used herbs for lungs. The leaves have an expectorant and soothing effect on the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract. This herb soothes, lubricates, and tones the respiratory system and aides in expectoration by stimulating fluid production.

✿ Plantain: Plantain brings about a host of benefits to the respiratory table. When taken in an herbal tea, plantain can help open up the airways during a cold or flu and help expel phlegm and suppress cough in folks suffering from a dry cough. This makes it one of the sought-after herbal remedies for respiratory system improvement.

✿ Peppermint: One of the most common herbs for lungs to support mucus and phlegm relief is peppermint. We can attribute this herb’s mucus-thinning and respiratory tract-relaxing mechanism to its menthol, menthyl acetate, cineol, methanofuran, limonene, pinene, and several additional compounds. Menthol and these additional compounds act as a decongestant and also help fight off pathogens. Peppermint assists the body in thinning mucus and loosening phlegm.

✿ Marshmallow Root: According to a 2007 study conducted at Comenius University in Slovakia in Eastern Europe, extracted polysaccharides from the Althaea officinalis leaf proved to be a stronger “antitussive” (cough suppressing) agent than most common drugs routinely given for cough or obtained over the counter [Source – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17685009]. Additionally, a 2017 report in the Journal of Natural Products found that extracts of marshmallow contained substances that inhibited the enzymatic growth of Escherichia coli (E. coli). The researchers from the 2017 study deducted that this element alone was a significant reason why marshmallow extract may have such a profound effect against respiratory conditions such as bronchitis.

The anti-tussive and mucilage properties of marshmallow root decrease throat irritation and reduce swelling of the lymph nodes. This can help relieve cough and cold and other respiratory ailments, including a sore throat

✿ Elecampane: Elecampane is a lung-cleansing, mucus-thinning plant traditionally used by Native Americans for a host of respiratory diseases. This plant is known for its antimicrobial and restorative properties, making it an excellent herbal treatment for coughs, asthma, and colds.

✿ Licorice Root: Licorice root has a robust history when it comes to medicinal properties. This plant has applications dating back millennia. It has been used in ancient medicine of various world cultures. Licorice is used in India’s Ayurveda as an expectorant, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, a demulcent and as a reliever for irritated mucous membranes. In the Greek and Arab culture, Licorice is prized as a cough and asthma reliever.

✿ Grape leaves: These leaves are rich in vitamin C which is the best vitamin to boost your immune system. It will keep your antibody in an alert mode to fight the bacteria or viruses that may come into your body. Grape leaves contain omega-3 fatty acid and antioxidants that are responsible for assisting in suppressing inflammation.

✿ Yarrow: As a decongestant, Yarrow has a drying effect and seems to improve coughs and sinus infections with sputum formation. The tea is an excellent aid for colds, it helps sooth a fever, coughs, as well as sore throats. Yarrow has also proven very helpful in removing heat and toxins from the system by increasing perspiration.

✿ Red Clover: highly regarded in the ancient world as a cleansing medicinal herb, especially when chronic disease had set into the lungs or the skin. Russian folk healers and traditional Chinese physicians have long used Red Clover for asthma, bronchitis and to clear the lungs.

🌿 This is the formula I use for my family when the flu and/or bronchitis is going around.
