    More details about TCM

    In TCM, it is known that the lungs help the heart in blood circulation throughout the rest of the body via the ascension and descension of Lung Qi. Therefore, a deficiency in Lung Qi may result in symptoms such as heart palpitation and tightness in chest, dry mouth, cough, panting, and sore throat. Regular intake of nourishing soups for lungs can also help to relieve those respiratory symptoms mentioned, as well as strengthen your immunity.


    Key benefits for the Herbal Steam Fish with Cordyceps Militaris Salad and Lung Nourishment Soup:

    -         To improve respiratory health through nourishing the lungs, and to enable smooth Lung Qi circulation

    -         To strengthen and boost immunity by enhancing overall Qi circulation

    -         Properties of cordyceps: fights inflammation, to reduce fatigue and enhance stamina for individuals who are exhausted or experienced burnout at work
