Ear infections are very common in children, affecting 20%-40% of children under six years of age. The Eustachian tube regulates pressure in, and clears fluid from, the middle ear. Obstruction of the Eustachian tube leads first to the build up of fluid and then, if bacteria start to grow, bacterial infection. Glue ear is the result of chronic ear infection and leads to hearing loss through fluid accumulation in the middle ear. By clearing and strengthening the ear, nose and throat tract, Plantago helps resolve and protect against ear infections. Many people suffer from catarrhal congestion, experiencing excess catarrh on a long term basis. Plantago, through its anticatarrhal action, helps disperse accumulated congestion. This familiar meadow plant is one of the most commonly used by herbalists. Alfred Vogel knew that the effectiveness of Plantago was greatly enhanced by it being cultivated organically, free from any contaminants

A Vogel is one of the oldest Herbal Medicine companies, with strong traditions upheld in this modern day herbal company. Started by Alfred Vogel, Alfred was fascinated by nature and herbs. Taught by his father and grandmother he soon acquired a deep respect for the wonders of the natural world. His research led him to spend time amongst indigenous people and to investigate how and why the modern day diseases of civilisation were absent from primitive peoples lives.
This led him to study diet, lifestyle and the remedies these people used. Alfred Vogel led a healthy life and was a skiier until well into his 90s. He died at the age of 94.
The company A.Vogel take science seriously and stand out amongst herbal companies. They have always adopted organic standards and adhere to the stringent standards set out by the Union of Swiss Biological Agricultural Organisations, the Swiss equivalent of the Soil Association. They never test on animals. Vogel said 'I esteem life as sacred'. They believe in a very holistic approach and that everything in the herb should be left as nature designed it, thus choosing to work with the whole plant as much as possible. They also work to GMP standards (Good Manufacturing Practice).
