Respir8 is a liquid botanical blend which has been formulated from a variety of herbal ingredients used to support respiratory tract health, in times of acute or chronic respiratory infection.
Elecampane – Traditionally used to treat a plethora of repsiratory tract conditions, including asthma and bronchitis; elecampane is considered a general respirtory tract health tonic, with numerous beneficial actions.
Ginger – A warming spice traditionally used to loosen mucous and facilitate removal from the lungs, ginger is an excellent ally for preventing superficial infections from progressing to pneumonia.
Calendula – Soothing and healing; calendula is traditionally used to ease hoarseness, and assist with the repair of damaged respiratory tissue.
Licorice – Used to inactivate viral organisms, and to stimulate increased mucin production, protecting respiratory mucosa against irritation, and the bloodstream against pathogenic invasion. Licorice is an adrenal supportive herb, which may be of especial benefit during lengthy or recurrent illnesses, which drain energy reserves and lower vitality.
Mint – Traditionally used to ease coughing spasms by relaxing the smooth muscle of the respiratory tract, and to settle an unproductive cough. Mint is a novel herb in that it is both stimulating/toning and yet relaxing in action – beneficial for conditions which involve the need to move excessive mucous congestion as well as the need to settle an overly aggravated airway.
Respri8 also includes a small serving of magnesium, which is used to further assist with the settling and relaxation of aggravated airways during coughs, colds and asthmatic events.
Importantly, Respir8 is free from synthetic steroids and antibiotics, so works gently yet effectively to balance and restore respiratory health and function, without damaging intestinal microflora, or suppressing natural immune system responses.
Respir8 is typically given at a rate of 5ml / 100kg bodyweight am & pm, over the tongue or mixed in feed.
Respir8 is made in Australia by Medicine Tree Health & Performance, from only the highest quality, local and internationally sourced ingredients.
