Wellness Enthusiast Product Pick – Lung Tonic

Dustin UFMeet Dustin, Universal Formulas shipping and receiving extraordinaire who  is responsible for expediting your orders accurately and efficiently.

His favorite UF product is Lung Tonic.  Dustin said, “I use Lung Tonic because I play soccer and am pretty active in sports. Lung Tonic gives me noticeable better endurance if I take it before I work out or play a game.”

The primary effect of Lung Tonic is to heal weak or compromised lung tissue and chronic respiratory congestion. Immune system response is improved by the addition of herbs such as Marshmallow Root. Licorice and Mullein soothe the Lungs removing inflammations and/or irritations associated with poor lung function and respiratory infection/disease. Other herbs like Eucalyptus help in removing excess mucous from deep within the lung structure. Ginger Root brings the circulation back to the lung tissue inducing a mild cleansing effect throughout.

Dustin also shared, “I think it helps with my recovery period too. I’m interested in keeping my lungs clean and strong for the long run.” If you’re active in sports or if you’re a smoker or former smoker try Lung Tonic to help  improve respiration and perhaps even  protect the lung tissue from additional damage.

Healthy Living Tip – Organ Detox

human entrailsEvery change of season it’s good to cleanse and detoxify. The bodies organs are detox experts, always working to keep the body functioning in top condition.  Here’s some helpful tips of what you can do to promote a healthy liver, kidneys, lungs and bowels.

Food
Broccoli, cauliflower, kale, brussels sprouts and other veggies help the liver as it moves chemicals and toxins through the normal detoxification process. This also promotes hormone balance and cancer prevention. Avoiding constipation is just as important. If the bowels are constipated, toxins that would normally be eliminated are left in the stagnant colon. Toxins that sit in the colon too long can be reabsorbed, causing the liver to repeat detoxification, expelling much of the organ’s energy. Extra fiber from fruits and vegetables is actually part of the body’s detox plan because it helps to bind excess toxins and pull them out of the bowels.

Water
The kidneys constantly filter the blood, with a portion of what they filter becoming urine. The body is nearly 75 percent water. Hydration is important for cells in the body to communicate, but also to help clear out waste the body no longer needs.

Exercise
By exercising regularly, the lymph system is constantly pumping fluid through its channels, providing an extra filtration of the blood. Sweating is another method of detox. Not to mention, regular exercise can help lower stress levels. When our mind is stressed it often presents itself in the body by disrupting sleep patterns and the digestion process, placing unwanted stress on the organs.

Sunshine
Yes, sunshine is key. Maintaining healthy vitamin D levels allows organs and processes in the body to function properly. Vitamin D is essential for optimal health.  Sun exposure for approximately 10 minutes a day on the hands and face can help support organ health.

Universal Formulas has a range of  Tonics to support organ detoxification.
