Mustard oils from nasturtium and horseradish can combat bacteria and inhibit inflammation. A combination of both medicinal plants has an antibacterial effect and relieves symptoms of sinusitis, bronchitis and cystitis. Mustard oils, like essential oils, are slightly volatile and act on the excretory pathways, for example through exhalation in the respiratory tract.
The active ingredients are highly volatile and therefore cannot be concentrated by extraction from the herbal raw materials. This is why the pure, powdered plant material is processed into a tablet. The tablets are easy to swallow and the recommended number of tablets should be taken to ingest sufficient active ingredient each day.
