(also known as cowslip) has a long history of medicinal use and is known for its anti-inflammatory Primula Veris flower1, diuretic, antimicrobial, antifungal and antioxidant activity.2-4
The plant contains saponins, which have an expectorant effect.5 Primula Veris flower is a clinically and pharmacologically well-documented modern plant-based medicine for the relief of bronchitis, catarrhs of the respiratory tract and chronic coughs (especially those associated with chronic bronchitis and catarrhal congestion), as it is a well-know antispasmodic.
(also known as sheep sorrel and botanically called Field Sorrel herb Rumex acetosella) is known in the plant medicine world for its anti-inflammatory6 action. Sorrel is used traditionally to reduce swelling of the nasal passages and respiratory tract, and for treating bacterial infections. The tannins in sorrel have a drying effect and reduces mucous production.
(botanically called Elder FlowerSambucus nigra). An elder flower infusion is known to be very effective in the treatment of chest complaints and acts as an expectorant7. It relieves asthmatic symptoms and spurious croup8 in children. Traditionally elder flower has been used in the management of swollen sinuses, coughs and upper respiratory cold infections, bronchitis, hoarseness, shortness of breath and general flu symptoms.9 European folk medicine has employed the elderflower as an antiviral, and traditional Chinese medicine documented a related species, Sambucus williamsii, as an anti-inflammatory.
Recent studies have indeed identified evidence of the Elder Flower’s efficacy as an antiviral. In 1995, researchers Zakay-Rones et al. conducted a placebo-controlled study using the extract during an outbreak of influenza B in a small community in Panama – the results were dramatic. Over 90% of the group treated with Elder extract, showed significant improvement of symptoms within 2 days, compared with 16.7% of controls. Since that initial study, several laboratory studies have supported the plants’ anti-influenza efficacy against both A and B human influenza viruses.
In a study of Norwegian patients with flu-like symptoms, those given Elder Flower’s extract recovered four days sooner than those given a placebo.10
The Verbena herb has mucolytic and anti-inflammatory action11. Traditionally, Lemon verbena has been used to treat sore throats and respiratory tract diseases such as asthma and whooping cough. The leaves and flowering stems are antibacterial and antispasmodic.12-18 Further investigation has shown anti-rhinosinusitis activity.

Also known as ‘bitter root’, the root of Yellow Gentian has an anti-inflammatory19 action and has been widely used as an excellent tonic. It is also antibacterial20 and effective for treating infections such as sinusitis, cough, colds and other related symptoms. It provides the body the required antioxidants21 and nutrients to combat these issues.

A combined herbal preparation has the potential of becoming more than the sum of its parts; otherwise known as the synergistic effect.
