Mullein: Properties and benefits

Mullein is a plant with important therapeutic properties for our body. In particular, it has been used since ancient times for problems with the respiratory tract and the respiratory system as a whole. It is therefore particularly suitable in cases of asthma, bronchitis and colds. This plant also has a powerful soothing action and is therefore indicated in all morbid states where more or less intense pain or discomfort occurs. It also has sedative properties which make it a sort of natural calmer, very useful in states of nervous excitement. It also has draining and diuretic properties which make it an excellent purifier as it is able to effectively promote the purging of toxins through the urine. Being very rich in polyphenols and flavonoids, this herb is also able to counteract premature aging thanks to its antioxidant properties (it is able to effectively counteract cellular oxidation processes caused by free radicals). It can also be taken in herbal tea combined with other herbs with a purifying and decongestant action on the respiratory tract, especially in the case of feverish states of various kinds or to soothe pain resulting from various types of morbid conditions.
