Helix-Respire is formulated with snail filtrate, which has an antispasmodic effect on the respiratory tract. André Jean Chrestien, a Doctor in Montpellier, describes the effectiveness of snail filtrate: ‘During the 50 years I have practised medicine, I have not found a remedy more effective than snails to treat chest irritations’. Mucolytic and bacteriological activity on the bronchial tree, detailed in Quevauviller's work in 1957, enabled the production of cough syrup, which is still sold today, and demonstrated its bronchial-soothing effect which initiates the release of prostaglandin E2.
Our plant complex contains thyme, which is traditionally used to treat respiratory disorders. Thyme soothes the throat and respiratory tract, facilitates breathing and helps maintain a healthy respiratory tract. Thanks to its soothing properties, it is able to relieve the throat, pharynx and vocal cords. Instrumental in combating ENT and lung disorders, dog rose buds strengthen the body's immune system. Hornbeam bud, traditionally used to treat the ear, nose, throat and respiratory tract, facilitates breathing and the normal functioning of the bronchi and lungs.
40 drops per day, to be diluted with a drop of low-mineralised water, to be taken between meals for 21 days.

Antimicrobial peptides* actin* and cytokeratins* serve as a point of support for the immune system and limit the bacteria proliferation on the skin.
Allantoin* and haemocyanin*are involved in the wound healing process and promote tissue repair.
Vitamins* and serine proteases* reduce irritation and neutralise free radicals actions.

Snail slime harvesting
Our harvesting process is based on the know-how of the first certified organic snail farm in France. After more than 4 years of research, we have developed a harvest without suffering for the snail which guarantees an exceptional quality of mucus. By taking one snail at the time, with the dexterity that only a human hand can offer, we collect a very heavy mucus very rich in protein.
In our laboratory, in the Loire region, we formulate our products to aim at a maximum amount of snail slime extract they contain. We claim between 50 and 93% snail slime extract while the rest of the ingredients is from organic farming. At the end, we propose to our customers products with more than 98% active ingredients.
