Although it is necessary to say that breathing is vital, sometimes it seems that we forget how important it is to have good hygiene of the respiratory system and to promote conscious breathing by good oxygenation.

We present a summary of the 5 Best Teas for Respiratory Function with properties to treat conditions of the respiratory system.

Herbal Teas.

Eucalyptus Leaf Tea.

Eucalyptus is the most recommended plant in any respiratory condition because it is expectorant (helps to expel mucus) and bronchodilator. In the past, eucalyptus smoke was inhaled, so eucalyptus cigarettes were formed to alleviate respiratory ailments.

It also helps to relax the throat and lungs, easing cough and irritation. Eucalyptus tea is even antiseptic, promoting faster healing of infections.

Organic Chickweed Tea.

This tea acts as both a demulcent and expectorant, meaning it helps to ease congestion and clear mucus from the lungs. Chickweed also contains saponins, compounds that can alleviate inflamed mucous membranes, useful in cases of infection.

Fennel Seed Tea.

Fennel has mild expectorant properties that help alleviate respiratory infections associated with a cough, colds, flu, and nasal congestion.

It is believed to be responsible for their antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory,  expectorant, diuretic, Depurative, antibacterial/antimicrobial, anti-cancer and antioxidant properties.

Spearmint Leaf Tea.

Peppermint is ideal for cases, nasal congestion, sinusitis or bronchitis. It produces an immediate freshness with a tonic effect that improves the circulation of the local blood, de-inflaming the nasal sinuses that produce tamponade and helping to expel the mucus.

Hyssop Tea

It is used primarily to alleviate respiratory ailments, from simple colds to flu, pharyngitis, bronchitis, sinusitis, respiratory allergies with rhinitis and mild asthmatic processes. diffuse secretions, which helps to cough up, softens a cough and removes the infection.

See what the best option is for your problem and avoid self-medication because it can be dangerous. Go to your doctor and follow his directions.

This is a great review especially since I am an asthmatic.  It is always nice to use something natural as opposed to synthetic drugs.  Also if these teas can help to maintain some control that would be the greatest news ever.However as someone who carries an inhaler I would still make sure you carry your inhaler with you.Thank you for taking the time to write such a great reviewDale

  2. I like the fact tea can help improve respiratory function. As someone who considers himself a purest, I’m very skeptic about medicine, even modern-day pharmaceuticals, so I’m always looking for natural ways to boost and maintain my health.

    I have friends and my health-fanatic friends (much like I am), and they swear by tea. One particular friend of mine is always picking my brain about different types of tea to try (for respiratory function!). Now I can point them to a credible article recommending five different types of tea.

  3. I must thank you for sharing such an interesting and helpful topic. The respiratory system is truly important for our body but just like you said, not so many people pay close attention to it. I regularly consume eucalyptus tea but now I will combine it with fennel seed tea. What do you think about mint tea? Can it positively affect our respiratory system?

  4. This is a really useful article that you can gain much knowledge from.

    I never knew that Teas could help with your respiratory functions. It’s great to come across articles that will help your everyday life.
