How It Works:
Nature’s Sunshine’s Chinese herbal combinations are based on 5000 years of Chinese herbal tradition. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which includes the use of herbal medicine, continues to provide primary healthcare throughout Asia even in these modern times. This Chinese combination was specially formulated to supplement the needs of a weakened metal constitution. The metal element in TCM philosophy is related to the lungs and colon. Metal people are considered precise, orderly and reserved. The Chinese call this formula fu lei, which can be translated to mean “strengthen the weak and thin.” In TCM philosophy it is believed that when the metal element is weak, the upper body and respiratory system are affected.

- Traditionally used in Herbal medicine as an expectorant.
How It Works:
Lobelia is an indigenous North American annual plant that is a garden favorite due to its delicate purple flowers. It has been called Indian tobacco because the American Indians smoked it. Interestingly, lobelia does contain a substance called lobeline which is similar to nicotine. Lobelia has a long history of use in traditional herbal medicine as an expectorant for the upper respiratory tract. Lobelia is best known in traditional herbal medicine for its expectorant properties. Expectorants help the body to remove excess mucus from the respiratory tract. Lobelia is thought to accomplish this by relaxing and soothing the respiratory tract to allow for the expulsion of mucus.
