What is Ekosept?
Ekosept is a dietary supplement based on sage and peppermint essential oils in the form of refreshingly sour tablets.
Sage essential oil soothes irritation of the mouth, throat and vocal cords. It is obtained from the dried leaves of Salvia officinalis, commonly known as common or garden sage. The name of the plant derives from the Latin word “salvare”, which means to treat, cure, save, and testifies to the long history of its medical use in human population. Carriers of the antimicrobial activity of sage essential oil are α-thujone, camphor, and 1,8-cineole. All three have been shown to be much more effective in treating respiratory infections caused by Gram-positive bacteria of the Streptococcus family.
Peppermint essential oil contributes to normal digestion and immunity. In addition, it has positive impact on the symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections (URTI), such as cough or sore throat. It is obtained from peppermint plant (Mentha piperita), and like sage oil, it has a great importance in therapy. The main ingredient of the peppermint essential oil is menthol, which stimulates the pleasant cooling effect on the mucous membranes of the mouth, and has strong antibacterial effect.
Ekosept contains sage and peppermint essential oil isolated from plants collected from our region. Their optimally balanced ratio contributes to the achievement of maximum therapeutic effect. Natural color chlorophyll contributes to the natural composition of the product, providing distinctive green color.
