Benefits Of Lvy Leaf Extract
The primary benefit of ivy leaf that has been backed by some medical research data, is its anti-spasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties, helping to treat various types of swelling (inflammation), and for conditions that block the airway passages (such as bronchitis). The exact mechanism of ivy leaf’s action is not fully known, but experts suggest that it may open the air passages of the lung called the bronchi by stimulating bronchial glands to secrete a fluid that is watery inconsistency. This helps to break up and expectorate (cough up) mucus. The 5–8% saponins are thought to prevent bronchial spasms. Saponins are also known to improve gut health and fight against bacteria.
