A.Vogel  Broncoforce for coughs and colds

Nutritional Health Supplement (may help symptoms of coughs, bronchitis, emphysema)
 
THIS PRODUCT IS LICENSED. (Formerly Ivy & Thyme Complex.)
 
This product may have the following benefits 
 
• Infective coughs
• Acute bronchitis
• Chronic bronchitis and emphysema
• Bronchiectasis
 
A cough is a distressing symptom in many respiratory conditions. It is a normal reflex, being an attempt by the body to eliminate foreign objects from the respiratory tract. In practice, most coughs are caused by:
 
1. Bacterial or viral infections which if severe can lead to acute bronchitis.
2. The chronic cough which results from lung disease - for example, chronic bronchitis, emphysema and bronchiectasis.
 
Ivy-Thyme Complex is a combination of herbs formulated to help soothe coughs which are associated with catarrh and other bronchial symptoms.
 
It is prepared from a number of herbs - Common Ivy, Thyme, Pimpernel, WhiteHorehound and Liquorice. These herbs possess differing properties which when combined work synergistically, contributing to the overall efficacy of the preparation. Essential oils of Anise and Eucalyptus are added for flavouring.
 
Mode of Action:
 
• Mucolytic action (thins mucus/catarrh)
• Expectorant (expels catarrh)
• Mild cough suppressant (anti-irritant)
• Demulcent (soothing action)
 
Common Ivy is an example of an herb which exerts an expectorant action on the respiratory tract. It does this by a reflex, irritative action on the stomach due to its saponin constituents. Expectorants encourage the 'loosening' and elimination of mucus from the respiratory tract. These substances are beneficial in catarrhal conditions and chronic inflammatory bronchial disease. Ivy also has antispasmodic properties, helping to prevent and relieve coughing spasms.
 
The primary active components of Thyme are the volatile oils, especially thymol. These act locally on the lungs as they are eliminated from the body by the respiratory tract, disinfecting the airways, relaxing bronchial spasm and exerting a mucolytic action (decreases the viscosity of mucus). These actions are of benefit in bronchitis, hacking coughs and catarrh.
 
Pimpernel is another herb with mucolytic action. In addition, it is an expectorant with anti-inflammatory activity, actions which are mediated by the saponins and volatile oils present.
 
The main active principle of White Horebound is the saponin, marrubiin. This substance stimulates secretions of the bronchial mucosa, an action which is enhanced by the presence of a volatile oil, making it a useful remedy for bronchitis.
 
Liquorice is an old favourite, added as much for its flavour as its medicinal action. It acts as an expectorant and helps calm the cough reflex and reduces bronchial spasm.

The uniqueness of A Vogel herbs

The herbs used to produce A.Vogel fresh herb tinctures and fresh herb tincture tablets are grown using a strict organic protocol, mainly in the fertile conditions of Roggwil, Switzerland. This allows the company to exert complete control over the cultivation of plants - from the time of planting through to harvesting. All the company's products are manufactured under Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) protocols and control. Stringent quality control tests and checks are carried out throughout all the stages of growth and manufacture.

Seeds are collected each autumn to create the new stock of spring seedlings. These are planted out by hand in our organic fields where the Swiss climate is ideal for cultivating strong healthy plants.
