Chinese Lung Support
Excerpt from Herb Allure: NSP Master Reference. For full article and references, please contact us.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the lungs are viewed as organs that control the vital energy in the body. The lungs are responsible for extracting qi (interpreted as "energy") from the air via inhalation, and then transferring it through the respiratory passages to the blood, where it is then circulated throughout the body. All ancient texts refer to the lung as "the delicate organ," believing that it is sensitive to imbalance from dryness, dampness, cold or even heat. Symptoms of lung imbalance or "disharmony" include cough; mucus in the bronchioles, lungs, sinuses and throat; shortness of breath; and susceptibility to colds and influenza. (1,2)
Chinese Lung Support is an herbal combination designed to strengthen the lungs and stimulate immune function to prevent or combat respiratory infections, especially in those prone to frequent illness. Chinese Lung Support contains herbs that increase the infection-fighting activity of white blood cells and enhance the production of interferon - a substance that fights viral infection by inhibiting viral growth. The herbs in Chinese Lung Support are known for their ability to help expel phlegm, relieve congestion, stop coughs, lower fever, combat fatigue, reduce body aches and pain, soothe inflammation, and improve breathing, particularly in cases of asthma, shortness of breath and wheezing. Many of these herbs also demonstrate antibacterial and antiviral properties.
Chinese Lung Support can be used for asthma, bronchitis, chronic fatigue, colds, congestion, fever, influenza, night sweats, sore throat and thirst, as well as bacterial and viral respiratory infections.
