Mullein - Glycetract
Mullein - Glycetract
Mullein leaf extract was used as a treatment for tuberculosis in Europe as early as the 16th century. A study in the 18th century found that mullein relieved the symptoms of several tuberculosis patients at St. Vincent’s hospital in Birmingham, England. Today, scientific experiments and medical studies have shown that mullein has expectorant and anti-bacterial properties, both of which are needed in treating this respiratory disorder.
Mullein is an effective remedy for treatment of bronchitis, asthma and allergies due to the same factors that it is helpful against tuberculosis, flu and the cold. Drinking mullein has been found useful in curing a wide array of digestive problems such as constipation, hemorrhoids, diarrhea and bladder infections. It is occasionally also used to get rid of intestinal worms. It has sedative benefits and is great for anxiety, stress and insomnia. It has anti inflammatory effects and could help ease pain associated with musclar or joint pain. For dry skin during harsh cold winter months just drink mullein leaf tea and it will hydrate you.
In topical applications, cooled mullein tea helps soothe and reduce hemorrhoids because it has high content of mucilage.
