Loquat Respiratory Syrup
With Slippery Elm and Wild Cherry Bark
The elegant, exotic loquat tree has long been loved by ornamental
horticulture fans worldwide-its glossy, dark leaves cradle clusters of
white, fragrant flowers and small, pale orange, red-blushed fruits that look
like mini-apricots. The tree has been cultivated by gardeners in Europe, the
U.S., and Asia since at least the 1700s. Numerous cultures also enjoy the
loquat fruit, which tastes similar to apple and is used in jams, jellies,
and desserts. But in its homeland of China, the loquat is not only
celebrated for its beauty and taste, but its leaves (called Pi PaYe) are
famed for their bounty of health benefits.
Loquat leaves are traditionally used for respiratory health. The leaves are
harvested year-round, and are used in teas and syrups to support a calm and
clear chest and lungs. Planetary Herbals Loquat Respiratory Syrup combines
the properties of loquat with other botanicals such as wild cherry bark and
slippery elm for a unique and highly effective syrup for respiratory health.
In traditional Chinese herbalism, the loquat leaf has been used to help keep
lungs clear. Planetary Herbals combines the famous benefits of the loquat
with herbal extracts from worldwide sources for a powerful, effective, and
soothing respiratory tonic. The extract of the loquat is combined with two
American botanicals and a number of herbal extracts from Asia and the Middle
Slippery elm bark has been known in the U.S. for centuries, not only by
Native Americans, but also by early pioneers. Slippery elm forms a soothing
coating over delicate membrane linings. In the 1840s, a Massachusetts
company made slippery elm lozenges that soon became the rage of church choir
singers and voice teachers-they soothed the throat after singing. Wild
cherry bark, likewise, has a long American history. It was used as an
ingredient in root beer. It helps maintain calm mucous surfaces.
The syrup also contains licorice, appreciated throughout history and used
worldwide by traditional herbalists-pharaohs, emperors, prophets, czars-who
have been beneficiaries of the licorice root’s tonic properties.
For respiratory health, vitamin C and zinc are recommended. Remain as active
as possible because moving around helps to loosen built-up mucus and fluids.
Wash your hands often.
