Ailments of the respiratory tract are pervasive in children and adults. The sharp increase in asthma over the last 20 years has been accompanied by significant increases in inhalant allergies, rhinitis, and sinusitis. Cigarette smoking contributes to increased risk for a variety of respiratory tract conditions. Thorne Research provides a well-researched formulation that helps support normal respiratory tract function.
The botanicals in T. Asthmatica Plus provide support for the tissues of the respiratory tract. Tylophora asthmatica is an Ayurvedic botanical traditionally used to support pulmonary function. Known as "Indian ipecac," Tylophora has an irritant effect on the gastrointestinal tract in high amounts; in lower amounts, however, it possesses antispasmodic and bronchial-relaxing properties. Human studies of Tylophora extracts demonstrate promotion of lung function.
The other Ayurvedic botanicals in T. Asthmatica Plus have also been used traditionally to promote lung function. Boswellia serrata (also known as frankincense) promotes the body's normal inflammatory response, resulting in a positive impact on normal lung function. Extracts and isolates from Picrorhiza kurroa can inhibit the release of substances that impede normal respiratory function.
