The Latin name for pleurisy root, Asclepias, is derived from the Greek god of healing, Aeslepius, because of the medicinal value of the plant.  With a vast history of medicinal use in both Native American and Western herbalism, it has always been prescribed as a treatment for respiratory illnesses such as pneumonia, bronchitis and pleurisy.  Modern herbalists use this root as an expectorant for the lower respiratory system, reducing inflammation, and to promote perspiration for reducing fevers.  Here Pleurisy Root is in synergistic combination with Red Clover and Fenugreek to combat both pulmonary and respiratory congestion.

Fenugreek:  

Fenugreek has a number of powerful phytonutrients and contains many nutrients including iron, magnesium and Vitamin B6.  Fenugreek has a wide array of uses in herbal medicine and in works in synergy with Pleurisy Root, Mullein and Licorice.
