Plantain Leaf (Plantago Major)
Also known as: Broadleaf Plantain, Greater Plantain, Plantago Major, White Man's Foot
The plantain is a perennial plant that originates from Europe and northern and Central Asia, but can also be found in North America and Australia. It’s a source of flavonoids including apigenin and luteolin, plus minerals like zinc, iron and potassium and vitamins A, C and K. Plantain leaf supplements have been traditionally used for boosting respiratory health and seasonal wellness. While its effects on respiratory health are not fully understood, its benefits may be related to vitamin C content, which according to studies can play a role in supporting healthy lung function.
