Sinus Plex ® Contains the following botanical Ingredients:

Eyebright herb (dry), Euphrasia officinalis

Eyebright has several chemical components that make it very useful medicinally; tannins, vitamins A, B, C, D and E, phenolic acids, volatile oils, essential oils, bitters, flavonoids and iridoid glycosides. These chemical components give it astringent, antioxidant, antibiotic, and anti-inflammatory properties.

The main use of Euphrasia, as suggested in the common name eyebright is as a remedy for all manner of eye problems (except when lens and surgical correction is required). It is of extreme benefit to all allergic reactions that could affect the eyes, fighting free radicals that could damage the eyes. It also has the effect of tightening the mucous membranes around the eyes. In light of this, eyebright has especially been helpful to people suffering from blepharitis, conjunctivitis and related disorders.

The astringent properties of Euphrasia aid in reduction of the excessive mucus that are associated with cold seasons and flu, sinusitis, respiratory problems in the upper region and problems with the inner ear.

Baical Skullcap root (dry), Scutellaria baicalensis

Baikal Skullcap is a Chinese medicinal herb that is a member of the mint family and is rich in nutrients. The nutrients in this plant are beneficial for reducing oxidative stress in the tissues in your body and has been used for over 2,000 years to treat fevers, hypertension, coughing, and other ailments; It is still used today as a traditional remedy for dysentery and diarrhea.

Baikal skullcap is recommended for fever, cough, GI, and urinary problems, and is also used in Chinese herbal medicine for inflammation, allergies, dermatitis, hyperlipidaemia, and atherosclerosis.

Liquorice root (dry), Glycyrrhiza glabra

Liquorice root, botanically classified as Glycyrrhiza glabra, is the underground stolon of an herbaceous, fern-like plant that belongs to the Fabaceae or legume family. Also known as Sweet Root, Gan Zoa in Chinese, Liquorice in British English, and Sweetwort, the name Liquorice comes from the French word ‘licoresse’ and the ancient Greek word ‘glukurrhiza’ both meaning “sweet root.” Liquorice root is predominately harvested when the plants have reached 3-4 years in age, and the roots are then dried. Liquorice root has been used as a medicinal ingredient for thousands of years in natural medicines.

There are more than 300 different compounds in liquorice, some of which have antiviral and antimicrobial properties. Among other ailments, it is traditionally used for upper respiratory infections such as coughs, asthma, and sore throats

Elder flower (dry), Sambucus nigra

As Elder flowers are high in flavonoids (especially rutin and isoquercitrin) they have long been used in natural medicine as healing remedies particularly for the upper respiratory tract and sinuses. Elder flower is also used in Chinese medicine, for treating joint pain and inflammation.

Elder flower has an anti-inflammatory effect, meaning it soothes inflamed tissues in the sinuses and dries up secretions and excess mucus. This makes it a great remedy for sinusitis, colds and allergies. It encourages perspiration, therefore helping the body’s natural immune response to work more effectively.

Garlic bulb (fresh), Allium sativum

Garlic is a surprisingly good source of vitamins C, B6 and the minerals selenium and manganese – all of which boost the immune system and may reduce the frequency of upper respiratory infections.

Garlic bulb’s antioxidant and antimicrobial properties strengthen the body’s defence mechanism and fight infection, which makes it effective in treating cough and cold. It may also reduce the severity of upper respiratory infections.

Garlic is highly beneficial in treating various respiratory conditions such as asthma and bronchitis. It also promotes expectoration with coughs, making it irreplaceable for those with chronic bronchitis.

It can also enhance mineral absorption.
