PRIMARY USES: Coughs, Sore throat, Smokers Cough, Acute colds/flu , Lung Congestion, Sinus congestion, Bronchitis
Ginger Zinger Cough Syrup is a soothing formula that reduces pain in the throat, makes coughs more productive and helps clear the lungs and bronchial tract of congestion and resolve lingering mucus that needs to be expelled. If mucus stays in the lungs too long, it becomes a breeding ground for viruses and bacteria to continually live, thus prolonging recovery from colds and flues. Ginger Zinger Cough Syrup is helpful for all respiratory conditions including coughs, colds, flu, asthma, smokers’ lung and bronchitis. It will also increase oxygen uptake and is indicated for athletes, altitude sickness, oxygen depleted individuals and asthmatics and is great for high altitude sports. It brings blood into the capillaries of the lungs, thus facilitating oxygen uptake via hemoglobin. Ginger increases circulation and warms up the body; in addition, it vasodilates blood to the peripheral tissues which can promote a sweat, increasing the body’s ability to detoxify and help sweat out a fever. It is a traditional remedy for soothing sore throats and it numbs sore throats, bronchio-dilates the lungs and assists in expectoration. It also is helpful for lung and throat infections and will stimulate the macrophages or resident white blood cells of the lungs. It calms the respiratory nerves and will reduce the severity of a cough; it loosens phlegm by making it thinner and allows the body to expel mucus.
Ginger Zinger Cough can also be used as a preventative for those who lecture, travel , teach, work in the public health arena or are prone to getting sick. It can be very helpful at the initial onset of a respiratory illness to stop or diminish it (combine with Echinacea).
It also has the ability to inhibit nuclear factor-kB (NF-kB), cyclooxygenase (COX) and lipooxygenase (LOX) enzymes and as a result helps reduce pain and inflammation in arthritic joints. For pain and inflammation, ginger can be used as an alternative to NSAIDs like ibuprofen without the damaging gastrointestinal side effects that NSAIDs commonly have. Ginger has anti-ulcer effects and actually helps protect the intestinal mucosa from damage.
