Respirafect® is used in Herbal Medicine to help relieve symptoms associated with chest complaints, such as excess mucus (catarrhs), coughs, and bronchitis. Long one of our bestselling formulas, Respirafect® is a herbal combination created specifically to address lung and bronchial infections, especially those accompanied by sputum coughed up from the lower airways. With its soothing demulcent action, Respirafect® helps the lungs eliminate the burden of excess, waste-laden mucus generated by the body’s response to illness. The infection-fighting qualities of Respirafect make it a perfect companion to our RespiraCleanse formula, which is oriented towards the mitigation of coughs.
