Product Description - Planetary Herbals Loquat Respiratory Syrup
The elegant, exotic loquat tree has long been loved by ornamental horticulture fans worldwide-its glossy, dark leaves cradle clusters of white, fragrant flowers and small, pale orange, red-blushed fruits that look like mini-apricots. The tree has been cultivated by gardeners in Europe, the U.S., and Asia since at least the 1700s. Numerous cultures also enjoy the loquat fruit, which tastes similar to apple and is used in jams, jellies, and desserts. But in its homeland of China, the loquat is not only celebrated for its beauty and taste, but its leaves (called Pi PaYe) are famed for their bounty of health benefits.
Loquat leaves are traditionally used for respiratory health. The leaves are harvested year-round, and are used in teas and syrups to support a calm and clear chest and lungs. Planetary Herbals Loquat Respiratory Syrup combines the properties of loquat with other botanicals such as wild cherry bark and slippery elm for a unique and highly effective syrup for respiratory health.
In traditional Chinese herbalism, the loquat leaf has been used to help keep lungs clear. Planetary Herbals combines the famous benefits of the loquat with herbal extracts from worldwide sources for a powerful, effective, and soothing respiratory tonic. The extract of the loquat is combined with two American botanicals and a number of herbal extracts from Asia and the Middle East.
Slippery elm bark has been known in the U.S. for centuries, not only by Native Americans, but also by early pioneers. Slippery elm forms a soothing coating over delicate membrane linings. In the 1840s, a Massachusetts company made slippery elm lozenges that soon became the rage of church choir singers and voice teachers-they soothed the throat after singing. Wild cherry bark, likewise, has a long American history. It was used as an ingredient in root beer. It helps maintain calm mucous surfaces.
The syrup also contains licorice, appreciated throughout history and used worldwide by traditional herbalists-pharaohs, emperors, prophets, czars-who have been beneficiaries of the licorice root’s tonic properties.
For respiratory health, vitamin C and zinc are recommended. Remain as active as possible because moving around helps to loosen built-up mucus and fluids. Wash your hands often.
Planetary Herbals has searched the world for the finest botanicals for your health, and is pleased to introduce this effective and unique syrup for your family’s health and well being.
Traditional Chinese herbalists have used the leaves of the loquat tree to support respiratory health since at least 500 A.D.
