Classic winter remedy earns THR Mark

The herb lobelia has been used for decades to relieve the unpleasant symptoms ushered in during the chilly, damp winter months.

With impeccable timing, Bio-Health has just announced that its Lobelina product has acquired a THR Mark, bringing the Kent-based company’s THRs to nine (with another three in the pipeline).

Lobelina is use for the relief of coughs, blocked sinuses and catarrh. Bio-Health’s marketing director, June Crisp, comments: “We’re delighted to have earned a THR for our lobelia product. It is such a valuable herb but it risked being lost – we’re really proud that we’ve been able to help keep it on health food store shelves.”
