Description of Three Spices Sinus Complex 90 tabs, Planetary Herbals
Three Spices Sinus Complex
Formerly Trikatu Traditional Ayurvedic Formula
Planetary Formulas Three Spices Sinus Complex is modeled after the famed Trikatu
formula of the 5,000-year-old tradition of Ayurvedic herbalism. Used for more
than 1,000 years, this warm and spicy blend has traditionally been used to support
digestion, the lungs and sinuses.
Herbal Lungs and Sinus Support
Throughout the centuries, herbs have been used to support the sinuses in a variety
of ways. Many have been used as herbal steams that help moisturize nasal passages,
opening up breathing in a delightfully aromatic way. Others are taken internally
to support digestive function. Long pepper, ginger, and black pepper - the pungent
herbs that make up Three Spices Sinus Complex - have traditionally been used
to support normal breathing by helping the body digest dietary proteins.
Digestion and Respiratory Health
When exposed to pollens, animal dander, and molds, the body may respond by releasing
histamine, a substance produced by the breakdown of the amino acid histidine.
Many substances that tend to cause histamine release are made up of proteins.
Of course, we readily absorb proteins on a daily basis through our diet - they
are generally not problematic because they are broken down in the gastrointestinal
tract by digestive processes. However, people whose digestive and intestinal
functions are less than optimal may not adequately break down protein molecules,
which can enter the bloodstream and evoke an immune response. When the respiratory
passages are exposed to environmental proteins (as in pollens or molds), the
immune system is further stressed.
We cannot do much about avoiding the environmental proteins that occur seasonally
but we can do a lot to increase the body's ability to more efficiently break
down the proteins that we consume internally. Trikatu has been used for centuries
to support digestive processes.
