Helpful to ease non-productive, hacking coughs by loosening stubborn phlegm. Among its many qualities, Inula is also an exceptionally rich source of inulin, a polysaccharide, that is sometimes used as a sugar substitute for diabetics.
Inula is an old and respected remedy for respiratory ailments. The herb is thought to warm and strengthen the lungs and promote expectoration by loosening stubborn phlegm and congestion. As an antitussive, Inula is used to quiet and treat non-productive, hacking coughs, chronic bronchitis and whooping cough. It also cleanses and tones the mucous membrane of the lungs, which has helped relieve asthma, emphysema and consumptive diseases.
Inula has been used to expel worms, including pinworm, from the intestines. Alantolactone, one of the herb's active ingredients, is considered an "anthelmintic," an agent that destroys and expels parasites.
Inula's antibacterial properties have been known to kill ordinary bacterial organisms, also being particularly destructive to the tubercle bacillus.
Contraindications: Pregnant or nursing women should not use Inula. Those who suffer from allergies to members of
the daisy family (ragweed, asters, sunflowers, etc.) should consult a doctor before using this product.
