Botanicals Rooted in Science. Plants are used to help protect against infection, like thyme and sage in Europe and echinacea root in North America. Plants make antiviral and antibacterial chemicals to help protect themselves in their environment. It’s these same ingredients that may help us fight infection too. Protect Tea contains 6 aromatic plants which have laboratory research to show they can kill certain bacteria and viruses. Though there are no studies to show effects in humans yet, there are human studies on these plants for other medicinal benefits.
Common ivy leaf (not the flowers or berry) is also shown safe and effective to treat a range of respiratory disorders – in over 2 years olds – and is added to cough medicines in Europe and approved by European Medicines Agency for use as a cough medicine – ivy leaf is an expectorant, as well as being anti-viral.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT AROMATIC PLANTS LIKE SAGE? The romatic essential oils of plants like Europen sage, thyme, rosemary, oregano have been shown to be anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral – they help protect the plants in their environment. Essential oils from these aromatic plants, and also eucalyptus globulus, have also been shown to promote secretion of mucus, relieve spasm and cough, be anti-histamine, as well lower oxidation and inflammation, such as decreasing the pro-inflammatory cytokine response. These processes can help reduce the swelling and edema associated with respiratory infections and so reduce symptoms like wheezing, congestion and difficulty breathing. It is safe to use these essential oils in steam inhalations as long as you do not have a medical condition such as epilepsy. Bay (Laurus nobilis) has been shown to have against a SARS corona virus.
DID YOU KNOW? You can take a cup of Protect Tea to help fight against infection. But to treat a condition, and for effective results, it is important to take the correct plant medicine/s and dose for your individual needs – and in that case always first consult a NIMH medical herbalist and inform your healthcare provider before giving to a child, if you are pregnant, have any medical condition or are taking any medication.
