Cough infusions from licorice.

In both licorice and marshmallow, the highest concentration of biologically active substances is found in the root. The healing properties of this vegetative organ of both plants are of great value in the treatment of infectious and inflammatory diseases of the respiratory system, accompanied by a cough.

Licorice contains saponins: this substance irritates the mucous membrane of the lungs, stimulating the secretion of the epithelium and improving the secretion. At the same time, licorice (another name for licorice) makes the phlegm less viscous, so it is easier and faster to excrete. In addition, licorice relieves inflammation and has a tonic effect.

Marshmallow also has mucolytic properties — it liquefies phlegm and accelerates its excretion from the lungs. Also, the plant has an enveloping effect — this is the result of the influence of mucus, which protects the mucous membranes from harmful factors. And the combination of mucus with polysaccharides absorbs substances that are secreted by inflamed epithelial cells.
