Lobelia is commonly used to treat respiratory ailments, such as asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, and coughs.
Lobeline, an active constituent in the lobelia plant, is very similar to nicotine in its effect on the central nervous system. acts as a relaxant overall while also dilating the bronchioles (air passages), thereby increasing respiration and possibly helping the lungs. Its anti-asthma activity consists of stimulating the adrenal glands to release the hormone epinephrine, which causes the airways to relax.
Lobelia is used in connection with the following conditions and/or their symptoms:
