Nin Jiom is a traditional herbal expectorant containing herbs from natural sources. It provides relief of productive coughs due to colds and allergies.

Loquat (Eriobotrya Japonica)

A yellow pear-shaped fruit from a small evergreen tree native to Asia. Herbalists value the loquat leaf for its natural ability to stop coughs (antitussive) and to promote coughing (expectorant) loosening the mucus so it can be expelled.
Parts used: Leaves

Dandelion (Taraxacum Officinale)
Valued for its high vitamin and mineral content, the roots are an excellent tonic for the body and help reduce the production of phlegm.
Parts used: Whole plant

Peking Spurge (Euphorbia)

An herb with an apricot kernel that soothes dry irritating coughs.
Effects: Expectorant Apricot kernel helps soothe a dry and irritating cough.

Chinese Licorice (Glycyrrhiza Glabra)

The high mucilage content of this herb makes it useful for soothing raw, inflamed tissues (demulcent).
Parts used: Roots

Mandarin Orange (Citrum Reticulata)

The peel of this fruit helps to dissolve phlegm.
Part used: The rind contains Vitamin A, B and C, and the white fibres of the rind are the most effective parts as expectorants.

Colstfoot (Tussilago Petasites)
A perennial with yellow dandelion-like flowers used to dissolve phlegm and soothe inflamed mucous membranes.
Parts used: Flowers and floral buds

A perennial with small pea-like flowers traditionally used to irritate the gastric mucosa to treat asthma and bronchitis.
Parts used: Skin of roots

Honey Extract

Honey provides the base for the cough syrup to coat the throat for longer lasting relief and to make it smooth and pleasant-tasting

Other Usage of Nin Jiom
In addition to providing relief of coughs due to colds and allergies Nin Jiom offers temporary relief of dry throats that result from too much smoking or drinking and soothe a throat overused by singing or public speaking. Simply mix Nin Jiom with warm water before you drink it for instant relief of your dry throat.

The Legendary History of Nin Jiom
The legend of Nin Jiom Cough Syrup began with a man named Yeung Kan, a Ching Dynasty official whose mother was suffering from a serious lung condition. Yeung was very filial and he consulted many doctors but none could cure his mother. His search for a cure ended when he was given a herbal cough syrup, a recipe by Yip Tin See who was a famous Chinese physician for the Imperial family. Finally, Mrs. Yeung was cured.

Mrs. Yeung was very grateful to Dr. Yip. Years later, she asked her son to prepare the herbal cough syrup to help others with the same illness. Yeung produced the medicine in the name of "Nin Jiom", which in Chinese means" in memory of my loving mother."

Upper Respiratory Tract Infections
To understand about coughs and colds, you have to know about the upper respiratory tract. The upper respiratory tract comprises the airways in the nose, ears, and throat. In most cases, infections of the upper respiratory tract are caused by viruses, bacteria, or other microscopic organisms. Colds, flus, and acute bronchitis fall into this category.

Who gets cough and cold?
There is a common perception that coughs and colds are only common during wintertime, but this is not true. Anyone can get a cold or other upper respiratory infection at any time. However, children are more susceptible to cold-causing viruses as their immunities are underdeveloped. Seniors are also more likely to get colds because immune systems weaken and gag reflexes diminish with age. Environment pollutants such as cigarette smoke, toxic fumes and industrial smoke and other things such as excessive exercise, stress, medication and cold weather can reduce the immune system's efficiency.

What is a common cold?
The common cold, or infectious nasopharyngitis, is the most common upper respiratory infection in all age groups. Symptoms of the common cold include sore throat, sneezing, minor aches and pains, mild fatigue, a stuffy or runny nose, watery eyes and mild fever. Colds usually last for less than a week. Among the 200 viruses that can cause cold, rhinovirus is the most common one.

Why do you get a cold?
Many people think that exposure to cold weather causes a cold. It's actually more likely you'll catch a cold by being indoors, where people are crowded together and viruses and germs circulate. Nasal passages are more susceptible to viruses in dry weather.

Cold viruses are passed by direct physical contact like shaking hands. To minimize the possibility of catching a cold, wash your hands frequently and keep them away from your nose and eyes during the colder months.

What is a Cough?
A cough is a symptom of common colds and of influenza or the "flu"" . It traps and helps flush out viruses and foreign particles to help clear irritated areas of the lungs and throat. Since a cough may also accompany serious lung disorders or heart disease, consult your physician if your cough persists. Avoid taking suppressant type medication as it may do more harm than good.

A cough may be a result of an upper respiratory infection or it may be a clue that you have another illness. If you cough up blood or have a persistent cough that's accompanied by a fever you should consult your family doctor. Your doctor will probably want to know about:

The frequency and duration of the cough
The presence or absence of pain
The color and type of sputum

If you cough up plenty of phlegm for several days, you should see your doctor, as it might be a serious respiratory infection such as pneumonia and bronchitis.

Productive and Non-Productive Cough
Before taking any medications to cure your cough, you should know whether it is a productive or a non-productive cough.

A productive cough produces mucus and phlegm, which protect the lungs and other parts of the lower respiratory tract. A dry or non-productive cough occurs when mucus running to the throat irritates the nasal passages.

Whooping Cough
Whooping cough or pertussis is a common and serious childhood disease that is caused by the bacteria Bordetella pertussis. It is a highly contagious respiratory infection and is a breath-stopping cough that tends to be worse at night. Teenagers and adults can get whooping cough as well. Symptoms include:

Runny nose
Dry cough followed by a whooping sound
Mild fever that lasts seven to ten days

Doctors sometimes misdiagnose whooping cough as bronchitis or a cold. If you have a cough that does not produce phlegm or lasts more than a week, consult your physician - it might be pertussis.

About Sore Throat and Strep Throat
Often the first sign that you have a cold or a flu is a sore throat. You may feel an itchiness, burning and raw sensation. A virus causes a sore throat and although it can be uncomfortable, it is not a serious condition.

Strep throat is more serious. It's a sore throat that comes on suddenly. With strep throat you'll have trouble swallowing, a fever, headache and even vomiting. Cold symptoms such as a stuffy nose and hoarseness rarely happen with strep throat.

5 out of 5 stars No better cough and sour throat syrup
by from Niagara Falls, ON, Can. on 12/10/2017
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
Nin Jion is the only cough medicine I have found that does NOT trigger an asthma attack. I take meds for COPD and Asthma but lately I have become more susceptible to upper respiratory infections and Nin Jion is amazing at calming a persistent cough immediately. I take my spoonful and just let it trickl down my throat slowly. It soothes my throat and stills my cough immediately. At least I know it isn’t going to disagree with my traditional medications. I love that the list of ingredients are readable and make sense.I have told many of my friends about Nin Jion and will continue to recommend it to many more.
