Breath is the essence of life. In Ayurveda, the word for “breath” and for “life-force” is the same: Prana. Prana is the vital life-force that we take in through breathing. It is so powerful that we cannot live but a few minutes without it.
Diminished respiratory function, due to environmental pollution, pollens or poor lifestyle habits, can result in a host of problems. Restoring healthy respiration and the natural flow of Prana can greatly improve your health and vitality.
Breathe Free contains four herbs that work together to heal and rejuvenate the lungs.
Pushkarmool (Himalayan Elcampane) is one of the world’s most popular and successful herbs for increasing lung function and capacity. By combining Pushkarmool with three other renown “lung herbs,” Breathe Free improves lung function via many mechanisms including offering antioxidants with special affinities toward lung tissue. All these factors help us to breathe freely and increase Prana.
Our Breathe Free formula supports respiratory tract health by promoting increased lung capacity and maintaining the normal function of the mucus membrane in the respiratory tract.

With a lifetime of seasonal allergies, and decades of abuses and assaults on my lungs from old habits and modern life in metropolitan NY, I can honestly say this formula changed my life.
Like all Organic India products, it helps me feel like myself. Only without the illness and struggle to breathe that frequently shaped my life.
Granted, I quit smoking a few years back and began practicing yoga and meditation about ten years ago. But after quitting smoking, this product helped me clean and soothe my lungs, especially noticeable as I did a lot of inversion postures at the time.
I also use this product seasonally, as well as for colds and coughs. I have given this formula to my children (young adults) as well. My son began buying Organic India products immediately. He is 25 with some health issues that are much less significant since he began using Turmeric and Joint formula. In fact, he has become a Crossfit trainer and relies on your products.
