The respiratory system is one of the body’s first lines of defense, where threatening airborne particles are trapped and either destroyed or eliminated. Built-in mechanisms such as sneezing, coughing and a runny nose are the body’s way of getting rid of offenders. Certain airborne particles that are benign to most people can wreak havoc for others. For instance, one person can inhale ragweed pollen uneventfully, whereas another reacts to the same particle as if it were an enemy. In such instances the body turns on its cleansing mechanisms and the immune system is put on active duty!
- Helps soothe irritated tissues.
- Encourages the entire respiratory tract to gently cleanse itself.

How Does it Work?
ALJ helps balance the natural eliminative functions of the respiratory system. Fenugreek and mullein contain mucilage, a substance that causes the herbs to swell in water. This creates a viscous, fibery substance that provides a soothing effect. Fennel has traditionally been used as a cleansing herb and is often used after eating. Indians used boneset during seasonal times when the body needed extra nutritional support. Horseradish has a stimulating effect on the respiratory system, which you can easily discover for yourself by eating a small amount of the freshly grated herb.
