PROPERTIES

Composor 1 is a mixture of extracts and essential oils of medicinal plants in vehicle of glycerinated water.

It is a combination of plants with antiseptic, antiinflammatory, astringent and antispasmodic action, specially indicated for inflammations and infections of mouth and throat.

Its properties are due to the action of various plants:

Commiphora molmol ( Myrrh ) is an oleo-gum resin obtained through either spontaneus exudation through fissures normally formed in the bark or by means of incision on it. This plant grows in Somalia and Arabia and it is very well known, since ancient times, in the treatment of buccopharyngeal affections. It was also used as emplastrums, mixed with honey, in order to treat muscular and reumatic pains. We must point out in its composition an essential oil constituted by terpenes, sesquiterpenes ( furanogermananus, furanoguaianus, furanoendesmanus ), esters, cuminic aldehids and eugenol. Resin containing comiforic acids, herabomyrrholic acids, esters and two phelonic resins, and gum composed of proteins and glucids ( galactose, arabinose and glucunoric acid). All these components give it expectorant, antitussive and antiseptic properties. Some authors confer it antispasmodic, antifungal, astringent and inmunitary stimulant, circulatory and digestive actions. In external use, it is vulnerary, balsamic and disinfectant. It is used to help wound cicatrization and disinfection in rheumatism, and in cosmetic it takes part in the composition of some nourishing creams. It is mainly used in buccal cavity inflammations ( gargarisms ) and respiratory affections.

Salvia officinalis ( sage ). In external use, it is a plant of great interest in the following type of affections: anginas, aphthaes, gingivitis, buccopharynx inflammations . Because of its content in catechic tanins, essential oil and bitter principles, it has astringent, antiseptic and cicatrizant properties. Besides, in external use, due to its content in flavonoids (glucosids of luteolol and apigenol), phenol acids ( caffeic, chlorogenic, rosmaniric ), catechic tannins (if stored for a long time, they turn into inactive flobafenus), bitter principle (picrosalvine: ditepernic lactone) essential oil (tuyone: tepernic ketone ) and derivated tepernics (pineno, cineol, borneol free or sterified, D and DL camphor), it is choleretic, antispasmodic (flavonoids and phelonic acids), antisudorific  (because its essential oil blocks the acetycholine and therefore cholinergic sympathetic febers, this being the reason why the sweat ceases. At therapeutic doses, it is emmenagogue. It also has sympathicometic, eupeptic, antiinfectious, tonic, stimulant and strinic actions, due to its content in essential oil (tuyona). It is hypoglycemiant, antigonadotropic, stops lactation, bactericide, antibiotic, (picrosalvine), antioxidant (picrosalvine and rosmarinic acid).

Propolis, apicultural product with antibiotic, bacteriostatic and bactericide actions due to its content in phelonic acid, ferulic acid, galangine and pinocembrine. It also has antifungical properties ( candida albicans ) due to the caffeic acid, cumarates of bencilo, pinocembrine, pinobanksine. It is a strong anaesthetic with an effect 3-4 times higher than the one of the cocaine and even higher than the novocaine. This action is due to its content in essential oils. Antiinflammatory and cicatrizant ( flavonoids and others ) properties. It has a positive influence on the inmunologic processes. It helps fagocitosis and antibodies formation and, indirectly, increases global resistance against infections in general.

Agrimonia eupatoria ( agrimony ), due to its richness in tannins and essential oil, has astringent and antiinflammatory properties, which make it very useful in the treatment of throat infections, mouth and gums ( gingivitis). It is a cicatrizant plant. Other important components are various flavonoic derivatives which give this plant actions such as activator of circulation, antirheumatic and antiinflammatory. It is likely its bitter principles have something to do with this action, as well as with an stimulant and kidney regulator action, gallbladder and intestines. With regards to flavonoic derivatives, it has recently been studied the kercetol 3-galactoside action in animals, noticing hypotensive action, coronary vasodilatadore in normal doses (in large doses it may have an opposite effect, that is, coronary vasoconstrictore action), antihistaminic and antiserotoninic.

Eucalyptus globulus ( Eucalyptus ) of its chimical composition, we have to point out its content in essential oil, whose main component is cineol or eucalyptol (tepernic oxide ether). It also contains terpineol, tepernic carbides (alphae-pinene) aliphatic and sesquitepernic alcohols (eudesmol), aldehids (butyric, valerianic, caproic) and ketones. It also has tannins (detoxificant sustance), flavonoic pigments (heterosides of kercetol) and a complex phelonic hetero-side, the calipsode, phelonic acids (gallic, caffeic), resin and a bitter principle.  Due to its content in essential oil, its actions are: Antiseptic of respiratory and urinary tracts, for its essence is eliminated at pulmonary level and through kidney; expectorant and balsamic, by direct stimulation of the secretor cells of the bronchial mucose. Hypoglycemiant, vermifuge ( against intestinal worms). Antibiotic (specially for tetanic toxin, difteric, Gram+ bacterias, due to its content in essence and tannin). Antifungical,  antipyrectic and antiinflammatory. In external use, it is balsamic, antiseptic and cicatrizant.

Thymus vulgaris (Thyme) is added to complete and strengthen the antiseptic action due to its content in thymol, carvacrol, two phenolisomers. Other important phytoconstituents are flavonoids ( apigenol and luteolol derivatives) phenolic acids (caffeic and rosmarinic acids), vitamin B 1, VITAMIN C, manganese, tannins and saponines which give to this plant the following properties: Antibiotic, antiviral, antufungical, antihelmintic, antiinflammatory, cicatrizant, antitussive and expectorant. It also has intestinal antispasmodic, inhibitor of sympathic nervous system, stimulant of the circulation, stimulant of the central nervous system, eupeptic and choleretic actions.

Potentilla erecta ( Tormentil ) has catechic tannins with marked astringent and mucous membrane protective action due to precipitation of proteins, which form a protective layer. It also contains a red dye inhibiting bacterial growth, and diverse polyphenols (kaempferol, galacatechol, etc.) with antiinflammatory action. The essential oil also carried out by the plant, brings an antiseptic action to completion.
