Product Information

Description

Naturally Caffeine Free Herbal Tea
A prolific plant that does well in temperate environments, some of our favorite raspberry leaf grows wild and is gathered by hand in the Gorazde collection region of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Gathered by a group of collector families, the young leaves are best when hand-picked in early summer before the fruits develop. Sustainable wild collection represents an important source of income for these families who live on small plots of land nestled amongst the gorgeous rolling hills and meadows of the region.

Health Notes

Ivy Leaf

Ivy Leaf
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Asthma
Dose: 25 drops of a leaf extract twice per day
A study involving children with bronchial asthma suggested that ivy leaf was effective in increasing the amount of oxygen in the lungs.(more)
Bronchitis
Dose: Adults: 50 drops extract twice per day; children: 25 drops twice per day
Ivy leaf is anti-inflammatory and has been shown to be as effective as the drug ambroxol for chronic bronchitis.(more)
Cough
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Ivy leaf has a long history of use for relieving coughs.(more)
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Dose: 50 drops of a concentrated alcohol extract twice per day
One double-blind trial found an ivy leaf extract to be as effective as the mucus-dissolving drug ambroxol for treating chronic bronchitis, which is a component of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. (more)
Asthma
Dose: 25 drops of a leaf extract twice per day

A controlled trial on children with bronchial asthma suggested that 25 drops of ivy leaf extract given twice daily was effective in increasing the amount of oxygen in the lungs after only three days of use. However, the frequency of cough and shortness of breath symptoms did not change during the short trial period.1

Bronchitis
Dose: Adults: 50 drops extract twice per day; children: 25 drops twice per day

Anti-inflammatory herbs may help people with bronchitis. Often these herbs contain complex polysaccharides and have a soothing effect; they are also known as demulcents. Ivy leaf is approved in the German Commission E monograph for use against chronic inflammatory bronchial conditions.1 One double-blind human trial found ivy leaf to be as effective as the drug ambroxol for chronic bronchitis.2 Ivy leaf is a non-demulcent anti-inflammatory.

Cough
Dose: Refer to label instructions

The mucilage of slippery elm gives it a soothing effect for coughs. Usnea also contains mucilage, which may be helpful in easing irritating coughs. There is a long tradition of using wild cherry syrups to treat coughs. Other traditional remedies to relieve coughs include bloodroot, catnip, comfrey (the above-ground parts, not the root), horehound, elecampane, mullein, lobelia, hyssop, licorice, mallow, (Malvia sylvestris),red clover, ivy leaf, pennyroyal(Hedeoma pulegioides, Mentha pulegium),onion, (Allium cepa), and plantain (Plantago lanceolata, P. major). None of these has been investigated in human trials, so their true efficacy for relieving coughs is unknown.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Dose: 50 drops of a concentrated alcohol extract twice per day

One double-blind trial found an ivy leaf extract to be as effective as the mucus-dissolving drug ambroxol for treating chronic bronchitis.1
