Thyme is rich in plant phenols such as thymol and carvacrol which are powerfully anti-spasmodic, making them potent cough suppressants. The antibacterial and expectorant qualities of this herb thin the mucus that the cough is trying to expel, whilst gently healing and soothing the bronchial tract.
Thyme benefits the digestive system by promoting the overall wellbeing of the digestive tract. One of the active compounds, thymol, stimulates peristaltic muscle movements so that food is not held in the stomach for prolonged periods of time. The antispasmodic action of this herb can relieve intestinal cramping and reduce bloating from malabsorption.
Properties: Used as a remedy for the respiratory tract. Alleviate infections such as bronchitis, cough, tonsillitis, laryngitis, and whooping.
