“This stuff is some kind of magical potion. Any time I feel any kind of cold coming on or sore throat I take a swig and boom gone... I have 3 bottles unopened bottles as back up in my bathroom and about 15 other coworkers bought it after they saw how well it worked on me. Everyone has a bottle in their desk now.”
“Kiss sore throats goodbye! Our neighbor introduced us to this stuff last year. I just ran out and ordered more. When taken at the first sign of a cold, this stuff kicks butt. I give it as gifts in my office during cold and flu season.”
“This stuff is the best cough medicine. A Chinese friend gave me some for a bad cough from a cold. I’ve been using it ever since.”
King-to Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa
King-to Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa (Chinese: 京都念慈菴川貝枇杷膏; pinyin: Jīngdū niàn cí ān chuānbèi pípá gāo), commonly known as Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa or simply pei pa koa (Chinese: 枇杷膏; pinyin: pípágāo), is a traditional Chinese natural herbal remedy used for the relief of sore throat, coughs, hoarseness, and loss of voice. It is a throat demulcent and expectorant.
In the name of the company, king-to means "capital", referring to Peking, and nin jiom means "in memory of my mother"; hence, it stresses the important virtue of filial piety. Pei pa koa means "loquat syrup".
The formula for pei pa koa was reportedly created by Dr. Ip Tin-See, a Qing Dynasty physician born about 1880. Yang Jin, a county commander, asked Doctor Ip to treat his mother's persistent cough. They were so impressed that they created a factory to mass-produce it. In 1946, the Yang family sold the business to Tse Sui-Bong, a medicine practitioner, who founded the Nin Jiom Medicine Manufactory. The company was formally incorporated in 1962, and continue to manufacture and sell the product worldwide.
Pei pa koa had annual sales of HK$350 million in 2014.
A study at the China Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine published in a 1994 article, "Pharmacological studies of nin jion pei pa koa", states that Nin Jiom Pei Pa Kao "had significant cough relieving and sputum removing effects. In four acute or sub-acute inflammatory models, the anti-inflammatory effect was marked.
The name loquat derives from lou4 gwat1, the Cantonese pronunciation of the classical Chinese: 蘆橘; pinyin: lújú, literally "black orange". The phrase "black orange" originally actually referred to unripened kumquats, which are dark green in color. But the name was mistaken as the loquat we know today by the ancient Chinese poet Su Shi when he was residing in southern China, and the mistake was widely taken up by the Cantonese region thereafter.
Loquat syrup is used in Chinese medicine for soothing the throat and is a popular ingredient for cough drops. The leaves, combined with other ingredients and known as pipa gao (枇杷膏; pinyin: pípágāo; literally "loquat paste"), it acts as a demulcent and an expectorant, as well as to soothe the digestive and respiratory systems.
In Japan, loquat leaves are dried to make a mild beverage known as biwa cha by brewing them using the traditional Japanese method. Biwa cha is held to beautify skin and heal inflammatory skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema and to heal chronic respiratory conditions such as bronchitis. Eaten in quantity, loquats have a gentle but noticeable sedative effect, lasting up to 24 hours.
