Elecampane Root

2 oz.

Elecampane root is a herbaceous perennial plant native to Europe and Asia but also cultivated in other regions. Elecampane root offers several potential benefits:

Respiratory Support: Elecampane root is traditionally used to support respiratory health by helping to relieve coughs, congestion, and bronchial issues. It acts as an expectorant, promoting the expulsion of mucus from the lungs and airways.

Digestive Aid: It may aid in digestion by stimulating digestive secretions and promoting the flow of bile, which helps break down fats and aids in the absorption of nutrients. Elecampane root can help alleviate digestive discomfort such as bloating, gas, and indigestion.

Anti-inflammatory Properties: Elecampane root contains compounds with anti-inflammatory properties, which may help reduce inflammation in the body. This can be beneficial for conditions such as arthritis, where inflammation contributes to joint pain and stiffness.

Immune Support: It is believed that elecampane root has immune-modulating properties, helping to strengthen the immune system and protect against infections. It may also help reduce the severity and duration of respiratory infections by supporting immune function.

Directions: add one teaspoon of elecampane root to hot water. Steep for 10 to 15 minutes. Strain and enjoy. 

 

FYI: Please consult your healthcare provider prior to use if you are pregnant or nursing, taking any medication, or have a medical condition.
