Helpful Hints for Respiratory Support

Are you having trouble clearing your throat of mucus? Sinus, allergies, wheezing and asthma are abundant in our world, now more than ever. Environmental damage to our lungs is caused by a lot of factors like smoking, second hand smoke, hay fever and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, known as COPD. It's all that bad mucus.

N-Acetyl L Cysteine by Now Foods, known as NAC is not only a precursor to Glutathione (What's that -- An amino acid that grabs those bad bugs), well known for mucus clearing and detoxification of foreign substances to our bodies, and has been used for 30 years to break up mucus. According to research by Dr. Richard Passwater, PhD, mucus has been known for the deadly disease of Cystic Fibrosis and NAC reduces Retroviral Infection. So for many people with oxygen tanks strapped to their bodies or with Nagging coughs, shortness of breath, continual hoarseness of voice, clearing the throat continuously, recurring sore throats and emphysema. A Mullen Lung Complex by Planetary Formulas, Botanical cascade of Chinese Herbs for the Lungs is a great product. Mullen Lung Complex is Mullen and Wild Cherry Bark in a complex.

Jarrow Formulas has Antioxidant Formula for just that kind of Protection.
