Every day, people inhale approximately 2,600 gallons of air to deliver oxygen to their lungs. The breathing system that takes care of this essential function extends from the nose all the way to the smallest airways into the lungs. Part of this system – the nasal passages in our nose down to the windpipe leading into our lungs – is protected with a thin, watery layer of mucus membrane.
Within this layer are cilia, hair-like structures that wave through the mucus membrane in a sweeping motion. As foreign particles are introduced into our lungs from the air, the cilia sweep them towards our throat so they can be removed. This method of expelling the particles is called mucocilliary clearance and this is how the airways remain clean. Airborne irritants like dust or smoke, as well as dry air, can disrupt this cleansing system. When this happens, the mucus lining becomes thicker and slows down the essential cilia movement that supports respiratory health.
The way Myrtol® 300 helps to clear the airways is by introducing into the lungs a proprietary blend of plant-derived essential oils including eucalyptus, sweet orange, lemon and myrtle. Together, these essential oils have a mucolytic effect that supports healthy mucus production and expectoration. The product is designed to be released in the airways to help expel the mucus so the cilia can move again.
Myrtol® 300 is a natural product and contains only essential oil distillates that are GRAS or Generally Regarded as Safe and carry no risk of harmful side effects. It has been used safely and effectively for over 40 years in Germany, as well as in 23 other countries worldwide.
Myrtol® 300 is now available in the United States without a prescription.
