‘Shiulan Tea' contains active herbs that are fever reducing, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic and reduces nasal congestion
Upper respiratory tract infections
Colds: Colds are caused by viruses expressed through symptoms familiar to all of us: fever, a runny or blocked nose, sore throats, coughs and headaches.
Influenza: When a cold is more severe with a higher fever as well as muscle and joint pains, we call it ‘flu.
Runny nose: Our noses run or are congested as a result of viral infection (or an allergy) which causes inflammation and a thickening of the mucous membrane and the blood vessels lining the interior surface of the nose. Surplus mucous builds up in the mucous membrane which we recognize as a runny nose.
Some of the herbs in ‘Shiulan Tea’ and how they act:
