Health Benefits of Osha Root
Osha, just like echinacea and zinc, is thought to work best when used in the early stages of the flu, basically, as soon as you realize you?re sick. It?s an antibacterial and antiviral herb, best known for its ability to soothe a sore throat, treat a cough, and ,relieve inflammation ,of the bronchial tubes. For a fever that won?t go away, it could promote sweating and help kick out the flu virus before it has a chance to turn full-blown.
In the southwest United States, it?s known as ?Colorado cough root? and is taken for cough during a respiratory infection. But its effect runs deeper than this moniker. Osha root could ,relax muscle tissue ,and prevent any invading bacteria or virus from spreading. Not many studies have looked into this herb, largely because its use is centered on a specific region of the U.S. and it is believed difficult to cultivate elsewhere ? therefore, its longevity in medicine is questionable.  ,(traditional uses) ,
