Smog is an issue that cannot be evaded in China and the world at large.
In misty weather, dust and harmful substances in the atmosphere enter the respiratory tract.
They stimulate and destroy the tracheal mucosa, causing the tracheal mucosa to kill viruses, bacteria, and resist their ability to enter the lung tissue.
Under such circumstances, what else can we do in addition to wearing protective masks and reducing our outings?
Chinese medicine experts recommend us to use Luo Han Guo(monk fruit), According to traditional Chinese medicine, Luohanguo has the effects of removing heat and cooling blood, relieving cough and causing sputum, sliding intestinal detoxification, rejuvenating the skin and rejuvenating the lungs, and removing phlegm and heat.
It can be used for prolonging life, maintaining freshness and treating cough, sore throat, irritability and other symptoms.
Modern medical research has confirmed that Luo Han Guo contains a sweetener which sweetness is 300 times than sucrose, but it does not produce calories, so it is an ideal alternative drink for people who are unfit for sugar, such as diabetes and obesity.
It is also rich in vitamin C, anti-aging, anti-cancer and beneficial skin beauty effects; also has hypolipidemic and weight loss, can help treat hyperlipidemia and improve obesity.
Luo Hanuo is therefore also called "longevity fruit" and "fairy fruit."
