Echinacea: traditionally used for relief of common cold symptoms in Western herbal medicine
Based on its traditional use in Western herbal medicine, echinacea relieves symptoms of common colds and flu including nasal congestion, runny nose and mild fever.
Echinacea is also traditionally used in Western herbal medicine to support the immune system to fight illness (like the symptoms of common colds) and to relieve symptoms of mild tonsillitis. Plus, echinacea decreases the length of common colds.
Balloonflower: traditionally taken to relieve coughs in Chinese medicine
In Chinese medicine, the herb balloonflower is traditionally used to relieve common cold symptoms including cough. Balloonflower also clears mucus in the respiratory tract and enhances lung health, based on traditional use in Chinese medicine.
