Grindelia (species) – aerial parts

May be used for respiratory ailments – specifically hot, dry coughs with clinging, dried out mucous. Grindelia’s antiasthmatic, antispasmodic, bronchodilator, anti-inflammatory and expectorant actions assist in bringing up the mucous while soothing the bronchial tubes, especially in cases of a tight sore chest, dry hacking cough, asthma, whooping cough, bronchitis and emphysema.

Grindelia can help to bring up stuck mucous and soothe the smooth muscles of the lungs, relaxing them and helping the bronchioles to open, allowing for more air flow.
