Horseradish contains compounds called mustard oils, which are thought to be the constituents which give it a decongestant effect. Horseradish has been used to help clear the respiratory passages. Garlic relieves symptoms of hayfever, coughs, colds, flu and rhinitis. Garlic contains sulphur compounds which are responsible for many of the beneficial actions. Fenugreek acts as a demulcent which helps to soothe inflamed mucous membranes. Vitamin C is important in immunity as it is involved in the function of white blood cells and antibodies and is therefore beneficial in dealing with mild respiratory tract infections, such as colds.
