Benefits of Lobelia
• Promotes Lung & Respiratory Health
The alkaloid, lobeline, may have the ability to promote relaxed airways, stimulate breathing, and assist with clearing mucus from the lungs. This may promote the relief of some symptoms associated with respiratory ailments such as coughing, wheezing, or chest tightness. Some studies have also found that lobeline may have the ability to assist in fighting lung injury by stopping the production of inflammatory proteins and preventing swelling.
• Promotes Phlegm Secretion
Phlegm is a type of mucus produced by the body and a normal respiratory response. If it causes uncomfortable symptoms, removing phlegm from the body may be beneficial. Lobelia is sometimes referred to as “puke weed”, earning this nickname through its traditional use for inducing vomiting. Lobelia contains chemicals that might promote the thinning of mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough up.
