Looking for foods that help your lungs? Look no further! We have three of the top foods to help cleanse your lungs and keep them in tip-top shape.

Pistachios

Pistachios don't provide the same direct lung cleansing benefits the way many herbs do. But they're still important to anyone interested in improving their lung health. They contain a type of Vitamin E, known as gamma-tocopherol that can offer a certain level of protection against some forms of lung cance, according to some studies.[1] Pistachios are also thought to help lower cholesterol. Raw pistachios are the best choice and make a great, regular snack. It's easy to snack on raw nuts and experience satisfaction without empty calories or the weight gain that comes with them.

Plantain Leaf

Plantain leaf is another food that can help cleanse your lungs. Plaintain, which is popular in Cuba and other Latin American countries, is not seen as often in North America. However, you can find it if you look. A quick online search for “plantain leaf recipes” will bring up items you should try. As always, avoid recipes that call for processed sugar or flour. Only use organic or locally grown vegetables and hormone free foods as ingredients.

Cayenne Pepper

Eaten both as a foodstuff and used as a seasoning, these popular peppers offer 17 health and wellness benefits to the body. They have been known to help suppress irritating coughs, ease sore throats, and help with indications of cold and flu. Cayenne pepper helps break up and move congested mucus, making it a recommended food for anyone who is suffering from bronchial congestion or respiratory ailments.

The Best Lung Support Supplement

In addition to these effective foods, you can also supplement with Allertrex®. This powerful lung cleansing formula consists of a blend of all natural herbs that have been used to help lung-related symptoms for centuries. Allertrex is alcohol-free and the first product of its kind on the market.
