RespiraPlex is a comprehensive and unique blend of botanicals and nutrients that support bronchopulmonary health. Tylophora indica leaf, Boswellia serrata (frankincense) resin, and Zingiber officinale (ginger) rhizome are Ayurvedic herbs that support healthy lower respiratory function by helping to maintain healthy bronchomuscular tone and balance immune reactivity. All three have been the subjects of modern research showing that they modulate production of eicosanoids such as prostaglandin E2, leukotrienes, and other immune regulators. Suboptimal selenium, magnesium, and B6 nutrition may interfere with normal free radical protection, bronchodilation, and other mechanisms critical to the regulation of airway diameter. Vitamin B12's role in maintaining normal sulfite metabolism may be important for preventing disturbances in normal lower respiratory function.

  • Tylophora helps maintain optimal airway and oxygen capacity of the lungs according to double-blind clinical trials (J Indian Med Assoc 1978;71:172-6; Ann Allergy 1972;30:407-12; J Allergy 1969;43:145-50).
  • Frankincense (Boswellia serrata) and ginger modulate the production of eicosanoids and other factors influencing immune reactivity (In Vitro Cell Dev Biol Anim 2004;40:95-101; Bioorg Chem 2001;29:156-63; J Ethnopharmacol 1993;38:1139).
  • Body levels of selenium correlate with bronchopulmonary health (Clin Exp Allergy 1996;26:838-47; Biol Trace Elem Res 1996;52:241-8). Selenium supported healthy lower respiratory function in a double-blind human trial (Allergy 1993;48:30-36).
  • Magnesium helps regulate bronchomuscular tone, airway diameter and airflow (Eur Respir J 1997; 10:2225-9; Magnesium-Bulletin 1997;19:4-6).
  • Optimal vitamin B6 nutritional status may correlate with bronchopulmonary health (Ann Allergy 1975;35: 153-8), and B6 supplementation has supported healthy airway function in both children and adults (Am J Clin Nutr 1985;41:684-8; Ann Allergy 1975;35:93-97).
  • Vitamin B12 is thought to be helpful for optimizing the metabolism of sulfite food additives, which may impact lower respiratory function in some patients (J Allergy Clin Immunol 1992;90:103-9; Rev Mal Respir 1989; 6:303-10).

Suggested use for adults: 1-3 capsules, three times daily with meals, or as directed.
