Herbs in ClearLungs® Extra Strength

ClearLungs® Herbal Blend

ClearLungs® Extra Strength starts with our ClearLungs® Herbal Blend, which includes Dong Quai Root, Ophiopogon Root, Poria Fungal Body, Chinese Asparagus Root, and Chinese Skullcap Root.

Gardenia Fruit

In traditional Chinese medicine, Gardenia is most used to "drain fire," i.e., to help support normal temperature and support a balanced inflammatory response. Gardenia is also commonly used to help maintain healthy nasal pressure, calmness within the body, and muscle relaxation.

Luo Han Guo Fruit

Luo Han Guo fruit is used in traditional Chinese medicine for respiratory and lung support. High in Vitamin C, it’s also recognized as a "guiding herb" to direct other herbs towards the upper body, especially the respiratory system.


Platycodon is included in this formula for its ability to focus support on the chest, help phlegm management throughout the system, aid respiratory and sinus health, and support loosening and comfort the lungs.

Tangerine Mature Peel

Tangerine peel serves to balance and regulate Qi (chi) i.e., air, gas, and energy flow throughout the body. The tangerine peel helps provide Qi energy to each organ throughout the human system, especially to the lungs.

Additional Herbs

White Mulberry Root Bark, Zhejiang Fritillary Bulb, Schisandra Fruit, Chinese Licorice Root, Availablend® Bioavailability Complex.

Product Description

The Extra Strength formula contains 50% more for periods when you seek extra support, and it also contains Availablend®, our patented blend of peppers to support bioavailability.

The ClearLungs® formula is Ridgecrest Herbals’ premier blend and holds a special place in our hearts as the one that started it all in the ’90s. For years, it has been the #1 natural herbal blend in the country for lung health, which shows how effective traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) can be.

According to Chinese medicine, the lungs are the "Upper Source of Water," and Qi flows downward from the lungs. Heat and excess water energy occur if the lungs fall out of balance.

ClearLungs® Extra Strength is designed to address this by:

Assisting lung function: The herbs in ClearLungs® Extra Strength help maintain strength in the lungs and improve their ability to function properly.

Balanced mucus and fluid levels: ClearLungs® Extra Strength helps to balance normal mucus levels in the lungs and respiratory tract. This can help support easy, free breathing. It uses bitter herbs to encourage downward energy flow to harmonize water energy. This can benefit people who seek continued support in maintaining clear lungs and airways.

Supporting the spleen and kidneys: The respiratory system is closely related to the spleen and kidneys, so ClearLungs® Extra Strength is also designed to support these two systems. This can help to maintain overall health and well-being.

ClearLungs® Extra Strength is a comprehensive herbal formula that supports lung health and respiratory function from multiple angles. It is a good choice for people looking for a natural way to balance their respiratory health.

This formula can be taken with our AirwayClear® for additional support.
