Ivy Leaf: Natural Cough Fighter

A cough can show up any time during the winter—whether you’re sick or not. Here’s more about how English ivy leaf can help quell coughs and boost overall respiratory wellness.

Ivy leaf (Hedera helix L.) is known as a traditional ingredient that’s been used for centuries to support bronchial health. It can help soothe coughs associated with hoarseness, dry throat and irritants, and can also act as an expectorant for chesty coughs (you know, the productive kind).

Ivy leaf is also a good source of saponins, sterols and flavonoids—components that support healthy mucous membranes and defend against occasional irritation of the lung and bronchial passages. Basically, it supports healthy mucosa beginning in the nose, mouth and throat, and then continues to the bronchial passageways and lungs.

Here are a few of the Nature’s Way products you can find this helpful ingredient in.
