What is cough?

Cough is a reflex response of the body when something is wrong with the throat or upper respiratory tract. It can be to clear the airways from mucus inside (wet/productive cough), or due to an inflammation of the throat, without mucus, due for example to pollution, pollen, irritant particles (dry cough).

Herbs for cough

Several herbs can be useful to alleviate symptoms of cough. But you have to distinguish between the two types of cough: the wet/productive cough (when there is mucus in the respirartory tract), and the dry cough (when there is no mucus).

Herbs for wet/productive cough (to clear mucus)

This type of cough benefits from herbs that have expectorant and decongestant properties, to help clear the mucus from the respiratory tract.

  • Fennel is a potent expectorant. If your respiratory tract is congested, this herb will be very useful to get rid of mucus.
  • Great Plantain can also be an interesting option. It is a mild decongestant and expectorant of the respiratory tract, and the good thing is that it also has antitussive properties.
  • Thyme: if you think your cough can be due to a bacterial infection, Thyme is probably the best option : it shares the same expectorant property as the previous herbs, but it is also antibacterial and will help your body to get rid of the infection quicker.
  • An alternative to Thyme, if you don like how it tastes, is Mullein: it is also an expectorant and antibacterial, and can also soothe the lining of the throat by creating a thin layer to protect it.

Herbs for dry cough

A cough is considered dry when there is no mucus to expel. This cough is often linked to an inflammation, and can happen due to pollution or irritant particles. In this case, the most useful herbs have antitussive and anti-inflammatory properties. The two most recommended are:

  • Mallow: This herb is ideal to soothe the lining of the throat. It is indeed an herb rich in mucilage, a substance than can create a thin layer to protect the lining. It also has potent antitussive and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Peppermint is the most recommended herb to alleviate a strong cough. It contains potent antitussive compound such as thymol and luteolin.
