What will this herb do for me?
Adhatoda has mainly been investigated in animal and test tube studies so it is uncertain what effects it will have in humans. Based on this preliminary information and historical use, it may suppress cough and have some beneficial effects in asthma.
When will it start to work?
This is uncertain because insufficient research data are available.
Are there any safety issues?
Some research suggests that adhatoda may stimulate uterine contractions, so it is not recommended in pregnancy.

A sticky mucus known as phlegm begins to produce and increase within your bronchial tubes and you begin to wheeze, cough and struggle to breathe.
