Cigarette smoke contains many chemicals that interfere with the body’s method of filtering air and cleaning out the lungs.
The smoke irritates the lungs and leads to overproduction of mucus. It also paralyses the cilia – tiny hair-like structures that line the airways and clean out dust and dirt. Paralysis of the cilia means mucus and toxic substances accumulate, resulting in congestion of the lungs.
This extra mucus means smokers are more likely to suffer from chronic bronchitis and what is known as ‘smoker’s cough’.
Smoking may cause various diseases, including diabetes, stroke, cancer, heart disease, lung diseases and cardiovascular diseases.
No matter whether you are a smoker or not you should eliminate the toxins from lungs in order to prevent health issues.
Here are the three common ingredients that will provide multiple benefits.
Turmeric is a spice that comes from the turmeric plant. It is commonly used in Asian food. You probably know turmeric as the main spice in curry. It has a warm, bitter taste and is frequently used to flavor or color curry powders, mustards, butters, and cheeses. But the root of turmeric is also used widely to make medicine. It contains a yellow-colored chemical called curcumin, which is often used to color foods and cosmetics.
The first ingredient is this miraculous spice, or also known as Indian saffron. It is high in minerals, vitamins, and omega 3 fatty acids. It has potent anticancer, antibacterial, and antiviral properties.
In human studies, most of the cardiovascular benefits have been demonstrated in the form of overall diet. Multiple studies show onion to be a food that provides protection for the heart and blood vessels when consumed in a diet that is rich in other vegetables and fruits—especially flavonoid-containing vegetables and fruits.
The benefits of onion in this overall dietary context extend to prevention of heart attack, malignant conditions and all kinds of respiratory diseases.
Many studies have suggested that increasing consumption of plant foods like ginger decreases the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and overall mortality while promoting a healthy complexion and hair, increased energy and overall lower weight.
Ginger has the ability to remove the excessive amounts of mucus accumulated in the lungs.
