Bronchial Clear™

How it Works:

Both thyme and ivy are clinically tested herbs for respiratory health, and each has an approved monograph for lung and respiratory health from the German Commission E. Together, these herbs provide safe and effective support for lungs and bronchial function.*

Thyme (Thymus vulgaris)
Thyme has been found to promote lung health, particularly due to its ability to help relax smooth muscle tissues. Thyme also contains antioxidant compounds.*1-4

Climbing Ivy (Hedra helix)
Ivy supports healthy airways, like thyme. Multiple clinical trials have found ivy safe and effective for bronchial and lung support.*5-7

Bronchial Clear™

Q: Do I need to consider interactions when I use one of the Bronchial Clear formulations?

We recommend discussing any supplemental addition to your regimen with your healthcare practitioner. However, people who are required to take several medicines at the same time can typically use ivy leaf extract and thyme without concern due to the fact that these botanicals are extremely well tolerated and no interactions are yet known. Thyme also is used to help give the immune system a boost and promote overall good health.*

Bronchial Clear™

Thyme has been used as a medicine and spice since antiquity – ancient Greeks believed it was a source of courage. Native to southern Italy and the western Mediterranean region, it was probably familiar in Central Europe by the Middle Ages. The fresh herb has a somewhat bitter taste and does not retain freshness long. Therefore the dried herb and essential oils are the most used forms.
