Traditional Botanicals for Sinus Support
The ingredients in SINUSFREE reflect the botanical experience of traditional cultures throughout the world.
• Yarrow is a hardy perennial plant that is native to Europe and Asia and has been naturalized in North America. Its leaves, flowers and oil have been used by herbalists since ancient times. Yarrow is strongly pungent and aromatic and contains sesquiterpene lactones, azulene, coumarins and flavonoids.
• Thyme is indigenous to the Mediterranean region, northern Africa and parts of Asia. It is rich in the essential oils, thymol and carvacrol, as well as flavonoids. Thyme is a strongly aromatic kitchen spice, traditionally used to support the normal flow of mucus and to facilitate deep breathing.
• Eyebright is a European botanical that has been used in the United States for at least 150 years.While most people, including many herbalists, associate eyebright with vision support, it has been traditionally used to support the sinuses.
• Horseradish has been cultivated for about 2,000 years for its thick, fleshy white roots, which possess an intense pungent taste. It is native to Europe, and was brought to America by early settlers. The pungency of horseradish is primarily due to the presence of its essential oils.
Essential Oils and Flavonoids
The aromatic qualities of the herbs used in SinusFree come from their essential oils.
Essential oils are often used in the form of teas, steams and inhalers as a way to liquefy mucus secretions, thereby promoting their free flow. The essential oils also evaporate readily and can be breathed in.When they come in contact with nasal membranes, they have a gentle stimulating effect that supports healthy mucosa and promotes circulation of mucus. The effects of these herbs are similar to what we commonly experience when eating horseradish or drinking a hot cup of ginger tea - within minutes, mucus begins to flow freely and breathing is deeper.
Yarrow, thyme and eyebright are also rich in flavonoids, which help to stabilize mast cells and thereby reduce the release of histamines. Flavonoids are an important part of a sinus support program.
