Now with Usnea Lichen for complete support!
• Soothing support
• For children and adults
• Keep your whole throat healthy
Adding unsea lichen to this formula (formerly called Heidi's Tonsil Formula) enhances its overall throat support properties, while maintaining healthy tonsils too.
Our tonsils are gland-like structures at the back of the throat. As part of the body’s immune system, they are designed to protect us by trapping bacteria and viruses that try to enter the body through the mouth. Once routinely removed, today tonsils are recognized as an important part of the immune system, and can be naturally supported in their protective role.
Extracts from: White Oak bark, Propolis resin, Oregon Grape root, Olive leaf, Devil's Claw root, Gotu Kola herb, Slippery Elm bark, Usnea Lichen.
What is Usnea Lichen?
Usnea is a type of lichen that grows on trees. It has proven to be highly effective in maintaining a healthy throat, providing support during times of discomfort.
Propolis Resin : Propolis is used by bees to seal the walls and strengthen the combs of hives. Since beehives are the only naturally occurring sterile environment in nature, using this substance in our bodies may help to promote the same healthy environment in us too. It also may help to stimulate the immune system.
Devil's Claw root (Harpagophytum procumbens) : Devil's claw contains a compound known as harpagoside, which is believed to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain-relieving) properties.
Gotu Kola herb (Centella asiatica) : Often called the “herb of longevity,” gotu kola is a traditional herbal staple, used to support brain function, provide healthy skin support, and promote liver and kidney health.
Olive leaf (Olea europaea) : Olive leaf extract comes from the leaves of an olive plant. It contains an active ingredient called oleuropein, which is thought to have anti-inflammatory benefits and antioxidant properties. Traditional uses include cleansing benefits, immune support, and cardiovascular support.
Oregon Grape root (Mahonia aquifolium) : Oregon grape root has traditionally been used for its digestive stimulant properties, antimicrobial benefits, immune-boosting, and anti-inflammatory properties.
