Vasaka is an ayurvedic herb for the lungs and bronchial system. The Vasaka herb is useful for many respiratory conditions including asthma and bronchitis due to its natural bronchio-dilating, muco-lytic and expectorant effects. Vasaka benefits the respiratory system by thinning and breaking down mucus build-up, helping the lungs to expel mucus, and dilating constricted and inflamed bronchial tubes. This Vasaka powder is completely free of any animal products and 100% USDA Certified Organic Vasaka. As with all our products at Gopala Organics, this Vasaka was grown with care and love at our jungle farm in Karnataka, India.
