Strengthens the respiratory system & soothes mucus membranes.*
About Lung Tonic: You might say that the spirit of life is found in the breath. We created this special tonic with clear, easy breathing in mind. Lung Tonic is made from a dynamic and supportive collection of plants that, when used daily over a period of time, fortify both the immune and respiratory systems of the human body.
There are many reasons why we may desire to support the health of our lungs. Lung Tonic focuses on this specific area of support while also recognizing that all the systems of the body are connected and working together. That's why we also include herbs that support general liver, immune, and circulatory function. This tonic is an easy way to bring moistening, revitalizing, and protection to this area of the body.
When to reach for it: If you regularly work, live, or visit an environment with poor air quality. If you often find yourself or a loved one saying, "it always goes to my lungs". To support and enhance pranayama or other breath work. During transition seasons and into the winter. To support recovery from grief or loss.

Astragalus root (Astragalus membranaceus) - Sweet, warming, and building. A true tonic, Astragalus supports the immune system of the body in various ways, helps to build blood, and has a certain affinity for lung health. This root is best taken regularly for periods of time, and is a member of the bean family (Fabaceae).
Marshmallow root (Althea officinalis) - Marshmallow prefers moist or wet soil. This aquaphilia is reflected in the specific moistening and mucilaginous qualities of marshmallow’s leaves, root, and sweet pink flowers. These moistening qualities soothe mucus membranes from mouth to bowel, while supporting the lungs and other tissues reflexively throughout the body.
Mullein leaf (Verbascum olympicum) - Mullein has a soft, fuzzy, almost sage-colored whirl of basal leaves and a tap root which grows confidently through compacted soils. The plant sends up a tall "wand" of yellow flowers. Mullein leaves are gently supportive of tissue and the respiratory tract including the sinuses, and support normal expectoration of the lungs.
Reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) - Like Astragalus, Reishi is tonic in nature, and much revered the world-over for its vitality giving properties. Spirited, red, and shiny with a smooth white underside, these restorative mushrooms deeply support the immune system and have a special affinity for the cardiovascular system, the liver, and lungs.
Schisandra berry (Schisandra chinensis) - Bright, juicy, red berries from a hardy vine, these tart berries impart a feeling of vibrancy and rhythm that is grounded and calm. Schisandra is a most beloved plant that supports healthy respiration and metabolism, and offers tonifying and protective qualities.
Safety Considerations: Avoid during active illness. Discuss with your healthcare provider if you are pregnant, have an immune disease, or are taking medications.
