Favorite Thing: Quantum Herbals Elderberry/Olive Cough Syrup

If you have ever had a cough that you couldn’t shake loose, that threatens to take over your nights and days, and is unrelenting… then you should have used Quantum Herbals Elderberry/Olive Cough Syrup.

My husband came down with a hacking cough about 2 weeks ago and it did not take long before it passed on to the rest of us. After 2 days of chest-aching coughs and sleepless nights, I’d had enough. I went through my medicine cabinet and found this little miracle of a bottle. After 2 days of swigging directly from the bottle, my cough became productive and began to dissipate. My husband could not believe how quickly I have begun to recover from this blight, considering he is still coughing away.

This formula combines effective and potent herbs (elderberry, olive leaf, horehound, osha root) with tasty maple syrup, so it is easy to take and one of the best respiratory formulas I have ever encountered.

Forget Robitussin – this is what you need!

Introducing Pathway Umckaloabo for Respiratory Support

Umckaloabo (Pelargonium sidoides) has been popular for years in Europe for the treatment of bronchitis.  Actually, Pelargonium was being used for the treatment of tuberculosis back in the 1920’s and has since been used with success against infections of the sinus, throat and respiratory tract.

Pelargonium sidoides is a member of the geranium family and the alcohol extract of this plant have been found to have a three-way effect:

1. Anti-bacterial: The Umckaloabo extract prevents bacteria from attaching to cells in the mucous membranes.

2. Antiviral effect: Similarly, Umckaloabo prevents viruses from attaching to the mucous membrane cells and stimulates the body’s immune system in such a way that both bacteria and viruses are prevented from multiplying.

3. Expectorant: The extract acts as an expectorant, allowing the body to expel contaminated mucous, making conditions less suitable for the multiplication of the bacteria and viruses.
