One of the primary constituents of the root of Elecampane is a starch known as Inulin. Inulin is a carbohydrate belonging to a class of compounds known as fructans. Among the many chemical compounds in this plant, inulin supports immune function and comprises up to 45% of the weight of the root. It is also likely that the essential oils in the root contribute to soothing support that it offers the respiratory tract. It also helps support normal mucous secretions related to wet coughs. It is astringent and bitter and thus has been used traditionally to tonify the mucous tissues of the respiratory, G.I. tract, and urinary tract.
