Effective for PM2.5 and hay-fever.

In spring, the atmosphere can often be polluted by PM2.5, Asian Dust, cedar or Japanese cypress pollen. More and more people began to claim that their daily lives are affected by this pollution. Many people have coughs and throat irritation caused by Asian Dust, and the air pollution by PM2.5 is getting more and more serious problem.

Once microscopic substances like PM2.5 enter the human body, they are absorbed in the lungs and spread harmful substances into the veins. Lungs don’t have any self-purifying system. The harmful substances once taken into the body can never be removed.

Inside the human trachea is covered with ciliated cells that produce mucus. Dust and bacteria came in through the airway are absorbed by this mucus and discharge from the body by the movement of the cilia.
