This condition is normally experienced with whooping cough, smokers cough, bronchitis and emphysema.
Benefits of Coltsfoot:
- Liquefies stubborn mucous allowing for its expulsion
- Resolves dry persistent coughs
- Decreases irritation and inflammation of mucous membranes lining the respiratory tract
- Immune stimulant: minimizes the risk of viral and bacterial infection in the respiratory tract
