What is Swanson Full Spectrum Mullein Leaf?

This vibrantly colourful species of plant native to Europe, Asia and North Africa is an oddly hairy vegetation that grows to around two metres tall with a group of almost luminescent yellow flowers clustered on its side.

Underneath it's thick and lustrous fur is a leaf which has been used for centuries to treat a variety of conditions. Verbascum thapsus is a well established emollient and astringent meaning that when applied topically it is great for skin conditions like dermatitis.

Such are the diverse uses of the Mullein Leaf that it has even been used to make dyes and torches. Swanson Full Spectrum Mullein Leaf offers you an altogether alternative option. These easy to take 500 mg capsules each have a purpose higher than any cosmetic value, as an expectorant.

Pliny the Elder, the Roman naturalist, philosopher and author believed that the Great Mullein plant was linked to witches, used to ward off evil spirits and curses. This misunderstanding may have come from the fact that the leaf contains several components poisonous to fish, causing them to float ominously to the water's surface upon ingestion. What he certainly never realised was the potential his Greek counterpart Dioscorides saw in the plant.

Dioscorides first recommended the plant some 2,000 years ago in his five volume encyclopaedia about herbal extracts, De Materia Medica. A book that still stands as a forebear to most of modern pharmacology. Swanson Full Spectrum Mullein Leaf stands on the shoulders of giants in recommending this amazing natural nostrum for respiratory ailments.

What is Swanson Full Spectrum Mullein Leaf used for?

Since Dioscorides, the Mullein Leaf has come under a lot of scrutiny, often mostly about the best way to administer it. It has been used in herbal teas, leaf decoctions and even been eaten raw but there have been none who rival the Native Americans for the most unusual way to treat a cold.

As anachronistic as it may sound, to this day, there are still some people who believe that the best way to treat pulmonary problems is to smoke the Mullein Leaf. It subsequently acts as an expectorant, clearing the system. An expectorant is anything which drives unwanted mucus out from the lungs, breathing new life into your airwaves.

The Swanson Full Spectrum Mullein Leaf is bolstered with 100% pure, whole ground mullein leaf which has experienced minimal processing to retain its full spectrum of natural phytonutrients.

  • 100% ground mullein leaf
  • Used throughout history to treat respiratory problems
  • 500 mg in each capsule

Swanson Full Spectrum Mullein Leaf also possesses anti-rheumatic properties causing you to cough and expel mucus from the lungs and throat. It also works as a lubricant to your your lungs and throat membranes while reducing swelling.
