Verbascum thapsus (Mullein): an everyday plant with powerful benefits

A powerful herb does not always have to be special, plants like nettle, chamomile or dandelion are not rare herbs, but they have a lot of healthy properties. A lesser-known example is the mullein, or Mullein. The mullein is a flowering plant in the figwort family. It is native to Europe, Asia and the Mediterranean and is commonly found in fields and areas in the United States. Although many people are familiar with the distinctive tall plant, few know about its unique properties. What makes the King's Wort so healthy? There are many different varieties of the plant and studies show that almost all of them contain a high concentration of polyphenols. A powerful antioxidant that protects our cells. The velvety leaves of the King's Wort also contain a rich array of potent substances, such as saponins, flavonoids, phenylethanoid glycosides and iridoids[source]. But the most important substances found in King's Wort are the different types of mucilage it contains. These are found in large quantities in Mullein and are therefore responsible for the benefits of the King's Wort[source]. Benefits of Kingspurse The mucilages are important because of their soothing effect on our mucous membranes. Although more plants contain these mucilages (often not in the quantities as in the King's Wort), the strength of Mullein lies in the combination of mucilages and saponins. Indeed, the mullein combines the expectorant effect of its saponins with the calming effect of its mucilage[source]. This makes the mullein the most powerful herb for soothing the airways. It is even concluded that it can solve respiratory problems[source].

Another unique property of the Royal Periwinkle is that it is good for our kidney function and urinary tract, among other things[source]. Apart from Echinacea , the only herb that has this proven function is the mullein. The herb would, among other things, counteract inflammation of the urinary tract and can solve the irritating effect of acidic urine[source]. Because Mullein has a strong influence on our body's activity to remove bad pathogens, it also has an important supporting effect on our immune system. For example, the herb fights the following pathogens: escherichia coli, yersinia pestis, pseudomonas aeruginosa, bacillus cereus, listeria monocytogenes and staphylococcus aureus[source]. These are the forms of Koningskaars that we stand behind
