New! Breathe Easy with Lung Revive
Pause for a moment and take a deep breath into your lungs. As you do so, feel your ribs expand with life-giving oxygen, and as you exhale allow your body to relax and settle. Notice how the simple rise and fall of your breath instantly connects you more deeply to yourself and to the present moment.
This sacred cycle of the breath, which brings us into direct reciprocity with the air, oxygen, and pulsating life force surrounding us, is something we often take for granted because it is so utterly natural and automatic. But by bringing our conscious attention to our breath, we can tune into a sense of reverent gratitude—the remembrance of how vitally important the breath is to our health, our well-being, and our capacity to experience true connection and contentment.
The breath is the very source of life, with us from the moment we come into the world until our very last exhale. It is the ever-flowing river of nourishment that brings the life-giving forces of prana, oxygen, and vitality to every cell and tissue of the body.
As easy as it can be to take the breath for granted, it can be equally frightening and uncomfortable when our free and easy flow of breath is disturbed. Our newest liquid extract, Lung Revive, was formulated to support the health of the respiratory system and keep us breathing easy, no matter what the dynamic and everchanging seasons of life throw our way.
How Lung Revive Works
Creating effective herbal blends does not always require complex formulations. In fact, sometimes simple is best—something Lung Revive effectively proves. With the careful combination of five potent rejuvenative herbs with an affinity for the lungs, Lung Revive is a well-rounded liquid extract that offers immediate support to the lungs and respiratory system.
In Ayurveda, the lungs are an important site of kapha dosha, the force in the body which is governed by the elements of water and earth. When out of balance, excess kapha can manifest as an accumulation of mucus or phlegm in the lungs, which can spread to other sites in the respiratory tract.
Lung Revive brings a bright, warming energy that works to break up excess kapha while quickly opening the chest and lungs to deeper, fuller breaths. Pippali, one of the star players in this formula, is renowned for its gentle yet stimulating affinity for the lungs, which you may even notice as a tingling sensation on your tongue when you take this liquid extract.
Along with this important heating and stimulating action, this carefully selected team of herbs creates a formula that is nourishing and rejuvenating overall, designed to soothe and rebuild the lungs while supporting the healthy function and comfort of the entire respiratory tract.
As a quick-acting liquid extract, Lung Revive offers a simple yet powerful way to maintain the health of your lungs and respiratory system so that you can keep taking those full, easy, life-enhancing breaths.
Understanding the Ingredients
The ingredients in Lung Revive work in harmony to provide the right amount of expansive, stimulating, heating energy to get any stubborn kapha moving, while simultaneously soothing, nourishing, and replenishing the respiratory tract. Here's a glance at the herbs:
- Pippali. A cousin of black pepper, pippali is a warming and rejuvenative herb and is a supreme tonic for the lungs that gently promotes clear, comfortable breathing.
- Amalaki. A natural source of antioxidants, amalaki is a nourishing rejuvenative that gently cleanses the tissues and supports a healthy immune system.
- Haritaki. Another potent rejuvenative, haritaki helps to eliminate ama, build ojas, and support the healthy function of the lungs.
- Bibhitaki. One of the best herbs for clearing and detoxifying kapha, bibhitaki helps to clear the respiratory pathways and promote easy, comfortable breathing.
- Licorice. A sweet, nourishing, and demulcent herb, licorice is excellent for soothing and calming the tissues of the lungs. Its unctuous quality moistens vata and liquefies kapha, promoting healthy expectoration and clear breathing.
Formulated in a base of alcohol and water, as were the traditional form of Ayurvedic extracts, the sharp and heating qualities of alcohol provide a quick and direct assimilation of the herbs, which is helpful when results are needed more immediately.
How to Use Lung Revive
