Bring down the heat on bronchitis this December.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Truly, the holiday season is upon us. It’s such a great time for merrymaking despite the cold winter nights. I bet you can’t wait to sit by the fireplace and enjoy some eggnog.
The problem with all that snow is the cold that comes with it. With the cold weather comes the common respiratory problems we have to deal with. This includes the common cold and flu. These respiratory illnesses could really put a damper on your Christmas plans.
There are practical ways to prevent the colds or flu. Take a lot of Vitamin C by eating citrus fruits to support your immune system. Make sure to keep yourself warm at night by wearing proper clothing. Another thing you can do to keep yourself warm is to exercise.
If you do not do these, you increase your chances of catching a cold or the flu. If not acted on properly, this cold or flu can become worse and worse. This does not mean you have Covid-19, no matter how scary that can be. It could mean you have bronchitis.
Bronchitis is the inflammation of the lining of your bronchial tubes, which carry air to and from your lungs. When you have bronchitis, you usually cough up thickened mucus. Sometimes, this mucus is discolored. It often develops from a cold or flu.
There are usually 2 types of bronchitis: acute bronchitis and chronic bronchitis.
Acute Bronchitis is the more common of the two. The symptoms last a few weeks. After that, there are not that many problems. The cough can last a few weeks while your bronchial tubes heal and the swelling goes down.
The second one is Chronic bronchitis. It is the more serious of the two. Here, the symptoms keep coming back. Other times, they never really go away. Your cough lasts for at least 3 months and comes back at least 2 years in a row.
Whether acute or chronic, bronchitis has the following symptoms:
-Chest congestion ( your chest feels full or clogged)
-A cough that may bring up mucus that’s clear, white, yellow, or green
-Shortness of breath
-Wheezing or a whistling sound when you breathe
Bronchitis is caused by the same viruses which cause the cold or flu. If you are prone to these respiratory viruses, you are more likely to develop bronchitis. People who are exposed to a lot of pollution also are prone to get bronchitis. This includes those who breathe in first or second hand smoke.
There are several ways to prevent bronchitis. But when you have it, you need to take precautions. It’s a good thing that Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has a remedy to help you with the colds, flu, and bronchitis. This medicine is Juhong Tanke Jiangao Bronchial Support.

The Pomelo (Juhong) is the biggest among the citrus fruits. It is a famous fruit eaten in many Asian countries from India to China. It is also eaten in Southeast Asian countries. It is a good source of Vitamin C which is why it is the main ingredient in Juhong Tanke Jiangao Bronchial Support.
We all know that citrus fruits have been prescribed to increase Vitamin C in our body. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can strengthen your body’s natural defenses. Antioxidants are molecules that boost the immune system against illnesses like the colds, flu, or bronchitis. This is because antioxidants encourage the production of white blood cells and helps them function more effectively.
Different parts of citrus fruits and plants can be used to increase Vitamin C. Though they all share similar properties, each has a specific use. A single fruit can be used in different ways. It is interesting that western herbalists use citrus leaves and seed while TCM herbalists use the peels or the fruits themselves.
More importantly, what is used in Juhong Tanke Jiangao Bronchial Support are the rinds or peels. The fruit peel has leathery endocarp, containing numerous oil glands. It has anti bacterial, anti fungal, anti oxidant, Larvicidal, hepatoprotective, anti cancer, anti platelets, and anti diabetic activity. No wonder this makes it effective in treating bronchitis!
