Lung inflammation, sore throat, cough. Sound familiar in 2020?
Project Loquat offers free herbal products to those in need utilizing what's all around us. We're a community of herbalists, chefs, and do-gooders in Austin, Texas and our muse is the Loquat tree.
The Loquat, Eriobotrya japonica, is an evergreen tree of high medicinal value that grows readily in Austin. It produces a beautiful orange fruit in springtime, and its leaves are packed with powerful plant compounds that have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years.
According to peer-reviewed literature, there is promising research to show that Loquat leaf is anti-inflammatory, antitussive, and is also antiviral. It also has a pleasant taste and goes down easy. Hence why we made it the base of our products! Our products are herbal extractions that may help symptoms like cough, lung inflammation, and sore throat.*
