The respiratory system is composed of the nose, sinuses, throat, and lungs. The primary function of the respiratory system is to provide oxygen to the body and to remove carbon dioxide. It also has a critical role in fluid balance and is intricately tied to the cardiovascular system.
Oxygen is critical to our survival and a healthy respiratory system ensures adequate oxygen supply to our body. Our supply of oxygen can be insufficient if the lungs, nose, or sinuses become obstructed or do not function properly. Obstruction can occur when there is excess mucous build-up often due to allergen irritation or infectious microbes. A healthy respiratory system also rids our bodies of toxins and metabolic by-products like carbon dioxide. Both a good intake of oxygen and a good exhalation of waste products are equally important to a healthy respiratory system.
A healthy respiratory system also provides resistance against allergens and infections. Along with a healthy diet, a program of regular exercise that increases oxygen intake, and avoidance of smoke, pollen, and other allergens help to ensure a healthy respiratory system. Tobacco should be avoided entirely.
Numerous dietary supplements can help in various ways when dealing with respiratory problems. A daily intake of high quality vitamins and minerals can help keep the respiratory system functioning at its peak. Herbs such as mullein, slippery elm, and marshmellow act as expectorants and are useful when phlegm and congestion are present. Green tea, eucalyptus, and rosemary help to open up the sinuses and lungs when constriction or wheezing occurs. Quercetin and garlic are useful when combatting chronic allergies. Furthermore, antioxidants can help protect the lungs from free radical damage.

|Essential fatty acids are "good fats" that are absolutely necessary for the reproduction of cells. We also need them as part of the many natural biochemical processes of the body. They are called "essential" because each cell in our body needs a supply of them each and every day. They are also called "essential" because they must be taken in from our diets or in supplement form. As part of a healthy lifestyle, supplementing daily with essential fatty acids helps to keep our bodies functioning at their peak. This formula combines the beneficial omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids which are most important to our health. Omega-3 EFAs are utilised by the body in several key areas that help influence general wellbeing.

Additionally omega-3 EFAs provide anti-inflammatory activity, and also support the maintenance of healthy brain function and healthy triglyceride levels.|
