Alpenkraft is a German word meaning strength from the mountains. The distinct, alpine flavor of this herbal syrup reflects the unusual potency of plants grown in a pure and unadulterated environment. Anise seed, fennel, peppermint, eucalyptus, wild mountain pine and other herbs help to soothe sore throats and relieve bronchial congestion. This traditional tonic can be safely enjoyed by children and adults of all ages. Alpenkraft was formulated with two distinct categories of herbs. The first are carefully selected botanicals proven to work together to support health respiratory organs. The second group of herbs works synergistically with the first group to break up deposits of mucus, and thereby supporting healthy, normal breathing.
