    Why our lungs need protection?

    The lungs are different from most of the other organs in our bodies because their delicate tissues are directly connected to the outside environment. Anything we breathe in can affect the lungs. Germs, tobacco smoke and other harmful substances can cause damage to the airways and threaten the lungs ability to work properly.

    Our bodies have the natural defense systems designed to protect the lungs. This works very well most of the time to keep out dirt and fight off germs. But there are some important things we have to do to reduce the risk of lung disease.

    Cigarette smoking, Secondhand smoke, outdoor air pollution, chemicals in the home and workplace, and radon can all cause or worsen lung disease. Regular check-ups are an important part of disease prevention, even when you are feeling well. This is especially true for lung disease, which sometimes goes undetected until it is serious.

    Without any extra effort, our lungs are in a near-constant state of inhaling and exhaling. Like all active areas of our bodies, the lungs require a fair share of vitamins to help them create new cells, repair DNA and fight damage from oxidation. In addition to a healthy diet, consuming the best vitamins for lungs can help promote lung health.

    Why choose Andorra Life?

    Andorra’s Lung Cleanse is scientifically formulated and tested to shield your lung from air pollutants, smoking damages, detoxifies, and promotes the healthy lung blood circulation.

    N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC):

    NAC is a compound that is converted by the body into the naturally occurring amino acid cysteine. NAC has been shown to lower blood levels of homocysteine, an effect that is potentially beneficial for heart disease prevention.

    NAC also can break up trapped mucus and enhance its clearance from the bronchial passages, thereby improving the flow of air in and out of the lungs in people with COPD. In addition, NAC is the precursor of glutathione, one of the major antioxidants in lung tissue. Although the mucus-clearing effect of NAC occurs mainly when the compound is administered by inhalation, oral NAC has repeatedly been shown to prevent flare-ups in people with chronic bronchitis.

    Supplementing with N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) can reduce the need for hospitalization among people suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), according to a study in the European Respiratory Journal (2003;21:795–8).

    In the study, 1,219 people who had been hospitalized for COPD were observed for an average of nine months after they were discharged from the hospital. Those who were prescribed NAC were approximately one-third less likely to be readmitted to the hospital, compared with those who were not given NAC. The risk of hospitalization decreased with increasing doses of NAC. Excluding those who were prescribed less than 400 mg per day, treatment with NAC was associated with an 85% reduction in the rate of readmission.

    A large number of studies have used 600 mg per day of NAC for prevention of chronic bronchitis. Although a few of participants in some studies experienced side effects, including nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, indigestion, dyspepsia, dry mouth, headache, dizziness, or abnormal taste, most people tolerated the treatment well. Long-term use of NAC has the potential to increase the requirement for zinc and copper. Some doctors, therefore, advise people who are taking NAC also to take a multivitaminmineral preparation that provides approximately 15 mg of zinc and 2 mg of copper per day.

    Vitamin A:

    Vitamin A is the name of a group of fat-soluble retinoids, including retinol, retinal, retinoic acid, and retinyl esters. Vitamin A is involved in immune function, vision, reproduction, and cellular communication . Vitamin A is critical for vision as an essential component of rhodopsin, a protein that absorbs light in the retinal receptors, and because it supports the normal differentiation and functioning of the conjunctival membranes and cornea. Vitamin A also supports cell growth and differentiation, playing a critical role in the normal formation and maintenance of the heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs.

    One of the most important functions of vitamin A is to repair and re-build all the internal mucosal membranes, from the top orifice to the bottom one. Thus Vitamin A is recommended for sinus problems, leaky gut syndrome and even interstitial cystitis. Vitamin A is helpful for anything that has to do with internal mucous membranes.

    In these days of constantly increasing air pollution, and the spread of airborne bacteria and viruses, it is important to realize that the lining of the sinuses and lungs are the first line of defense. Thus vitamin A is essential for protection against colds, influenza and infections of the kidneys, bladder, lungs and mucous membranes.

    Vitamin B-6 and Vitamin B-12:

    Vitamin B6 is also called pyridoxine. Vitamin B6 has been studied for the treatment of many conditions, including anemia (low amounts of healthy red blood cells). A new study has shown that to have higher blood levels of vitamin B6 and the amino acid methionine both appear to reduce lung cancer risk in smokers and nonsmokers alike.

    Vitamin B12 is a B vitamin. It can be found in foods such as meat, fish, and dairy products. Vitamin B12 is used for treating and preventing vitamin B12 deficiency that could cause pernicious anemia. Vitamin B12 is also used for asthma, allergies and skin infections.

    Vitamin C:

    Vitamin C was identified in the early 1900s in the search for a deficient substance responsible for scurvy, which was a serious disease of sailors in the Age of Sail. Starting in the 1930s, some German and US physicians proposed that vitamin C would be beneficial in the treatment of pneumonia. Although the burden of pneumonia has decreased dramatically in developed countries during the past century, lung infections are still a leading cause of mortality and morbidity globally. Many infections, including pneumonia, lead to reduced vitamin C levels in plasma, leukocytes and urine. Because of these changes in metabolism, vitamin C might have a therapeutic effect on pneumonia patients. Thus there is a biological rationale to examine the effect of vitamin C on infections in humans.

    The researchers agreed that a diet rich in the foods that provide vitamin C is likely to be beneficial for lung health. By reducing the amount of decline in lung function over time, consuming ample amounts of these foods could lower the risk of COPD - a COPD can be due to chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or both. Risk factors for COPD include history of smoking or passive smoke exposure, allergy and asthma, exposure to environmental pollution, recurrent respiratory illness, or a family history of chronic bronchitis or emphysema.

    Vitamin D:

    Many people associate vitamin D strictly with the health of their bones. However, vitamin D is also important for immune health, hormone production and lung health. According to research published in the May 2011 “American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine,” vitamin D deficiency can lead to poor lung function.

    Coenzyme Q10, Ginger Extract and Tumeric Extract:

    Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a substance similar to a vitamin. It is found in every cell of the body. The body makes CoQ10, and the cells use it to produce energy that the body needs for cell growth and maintenance. It also functions as an antioxidant, which protects the body from damage caused by harmful molecules known as free radicals.

    Ginger is an herb. The rhizome (underground stem) is used as a spice and also as a medicine to improve conditions on many diseases. Ginger is used here for its anti inflammation effect on upper respiratory tract infections, cough, and bronchitis.

    Turmeric is a plant. 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. Turmeric is used for arthritis, heartburn (dyspepsia), stomach pain, bronchitis, colds, lung infections, fibromyalgia, leprosy, and fever. Turmeric has also been recognized for its anti inflammatory effect.

    Hawthorn Berry Extract and Elecampane Root:

    Hawthorn is used for Cadiovascular health and a powerfully antioxidant. Hawthorn can help improve the amount of blood pumped out of the heart during contractions, widen the blood vessels, and increase the transmission of nerve signals. It can relax the tiniest lung blood vessels hence increased blood flow farther from the heart, due to a component in hawthorn called proanthocyanidin.

    Elecampane, also known as horse heal and marchalan, is a plant common in Great Britain, central and southern Europe, and Asia. Elecampane, has been long valued as an effective respiratory support herb, even being listed in the U.S. Pharmacopeia. Traditional Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic medicine use elecampane for bronchitis and asthma, as did ancient Greeks and Romans. In the 1800’s, lozenges, candy, and cough drops were all produced from elecampane root.

    Elecampane has actions, which are expectorant, anti-tussive, sedative, anti-fungal, relaxing, warming, and anti-microbial. Elecampane can soothe bronchial tube linings and act as an expectorant for lung cleansing. For this reason, elecampane is beneficial in supporting any respiratory condition which produces copious mucus discharge.
