Contains herbs known for their ability to help relieve extreme allergic sinus conditions and aids in the relief of other respiratory conditions
HERB – SYNUS™ combines herbs traditionally thought to aid in extreme sinus conditions. These herbs are generally believed to restore balanced body nutrition and thereby eliminate some of the undesirable effects caused by inadequate drainage of the sinus cavities. Some common conditions for which these ingredients have historically proven effective include sinus headaches, nasal and throat inflammations and minor infections brought about by improper drainage.
HERB – SYNUS™ also contains herbs long considered useful in helping decongest the lungs and throat.
HERB – SYNUS™ contains Ma-huang, White Willow Bark, Horseradish, Mullein, Sage, Myrrh, Odorless Garlic, Marshmallow, Cayenne.
Now, let's take a detailed look at these ingredients.
MA-HUANG or the Chinese ephedra plant contains ephedrine which stimulates the symptomatic nervous system. It is widely used to help relieve sinus congestion. Ephedra is considered a strong bronchial dilator and serves as a decongestant.
WHITE WILLOW BARK (Salix alba) is historically reported to be very effective for sinus headaches and the relief of sinus pain. It is widely used to lower fevers and serves as an anti-inflammatory agent. White willow bark contains salicylic which is closely related to aspirin.
HORSERADISH (Armoracia lapathifolia) is reported to be a strong source of natural antibiotics and is often recommended where respiratory infections exist. It is used by many herbalists as an internal source to clear nasal passages. Horseradish is a rich source of vitamins C, B1, sulfur and potassium.
MULLEIN (Verbascum thapsus) is called the natural wonder herb because it has narcotic properties but does not have habit forming or poisonous side effects. Mullein works well in helping to control coughs and spasms. It is known for its ability to loosen mucus and expel it from the body. Mullein has been historically used for the treatment of asthma, bleeding in the bowel or lungs, bronchitis, tuberculosis and where sinus congestion exists.
SAGE (Salvia officinalis) is a native plant of southern Europe and has been naturalized in the U.S. as a garden plant. Sage is a tonic, astringent, expectorant and diaphoretic, and has properties common to aromatics. Sage is beneficial as a flatulence connected with gastric debility. Sage increases circulation and is efficient in restraining exhausting sweats. Sage works very well for inflamation and ulceration of the throat and help to relax breathing.
MYRRH (Commiphora myrrha) has a history that goes back to the 16th century and was also used by ancient Egyptian practitioners. It was historically used as a salve. Modern medicine still uses myrrh as an herbal antiseptic primarily for inflamed mucous membranes.
ODORLESS GARLIC (Allium sativum) is another one of nature's antibiotics. Garlic is reported by herbalists to have properties that stimulate the lymphatic system to help eliminate waste materials. Garlic (often known as Russian penicillin) does not destroy the bodys normal flow of lymphatic function. It has also proven helpful where asthma and whooping cough exist.
MARSHMALLOW (Althaea officinalis) contains from 15-20% mucilage along with natural steroids and lecithin. Traditionally considered to be one of the best demulcent (soothing and coating herbs) known to herbology. It was also classified as diuretic, emollient (external soothing agent) and vulnerary (promotes healing of cuts and wounds). Marshmallow was said capable of arresting decay and earned the name mortification root.
CAYENNE (Capsicum frutescens) is said to help increase the power of all other herbs. Cayenne becomes very important when one wants quick action for colds or the flu. It is known to improve circulation and hasten the removal process of waste products from the body.
