Hello Doctor, lately there are certain products sold claims to “clean” lungs (habatu Sauda & Lian Hua).
I was wondering how does it work actually?
The supplements are ingested orally thus making it travel through the esophagus down to the stomach. How does the supplements work in cleansing the lungs since it will end up in our stomach?
Please explain to me…i would REALLY appreciate the full technical know how…

Thanks

Hello!
Thank you for your question.

For your information habatusauda also known as Nigella Sativa while Lian Hua also called Lian Hua Qing Wan (LHQW). As you mentioned, these supplement often taken orally.

These supplement acting on the lungs by actually affecting your immune reaction. This is because most of lung diseases are due to immune system malfunction. Such condition occurs in asthma and even infections. It does not literally cleanse the lungs. It only helps the lungs to fight-off infection and diseases.

However, before taking these supplements please look for its name or licenses with National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency. We also need to mention that certain studies regarding LHQW are relatively new and only from animal testing results, not on humans. You also should consult with your doctor or our doctor via online consultation before starting these supplement.

Boost your immune system with a balanced diet and good nutrition.

Hope this answer your question.
Thank you
