Ivy leaf is the leaf of the common ivy plant, also known as English ivy or Hedera helix.
Ivy leaf is also used as a herbal medicine, and has been for hundreds of years. Ivy leaf extract has been shown to also be well tolerated, with 97% of doctors and patients in a study rating its tolerability as either ‘very good’ or ‘good’. Another study found that there was “considerable evidence for the tolerability of hedera helix” (ivy leaf).
Ivy leaf has been found to contain 5-8% saponins (a chemical compound) and a low content of emetine (an alkaloid) – combined, these have the effect of helping to:
- Thin the consistency of mucus in your airways
- Loosen the mucus from your chest
- Clear mucus by making it easier to cough up
- Calm coughs
