Mullein Leaf


Mullein is an expectorant, which means it helps the body expel excess mucus, usually by helping make your coughs more productive, to bring up mucus that may be settling in the chest or in the throat.

It is also a demulcent. Studies show that demulcents create a soothing anti-inflammatory coating over mucous membranes.

Mullein Leaves are taken from the Mullein plant (also known as Verbascum) native to Europe and Asia and are traditionally used in herbal medicine. The leaves have been used for centuries in traditional herbal medicine for chronic coughs, colds and asthma. Traditionally, mullein leaves have been used to treat respiratory issues such as tonsillitis and pneumonia.

By the late 1800s, mullein became a popular treatment for people with tuberculosis in Europe, the United States, and the United Kingdom.

Mullein contains a variety of plant chemicals with potent anti-inflammatory properties. Some research suggests that one of these plant chemicals, an antioxidant called kaempferol, could help reverse cartilage destruction. It may also reduce the severity of pain and inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis

Mullein contains a variety of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, C, E, calcium, magnesium, and iron.
