Everyone will find the pronunciation of "枇" [pí pa], which is the same as "pipa". The two really have a bit related.

The pipa was the instrument of the nomadic people. The gesture was batch, and the inside was collected as a handle.During the same period, people also called a shape similar to the above instruments as "枇".In the end of the Han Dynasty, the term "Pipa", which was used for instruments, was finally determined, and "枇" became the name of the fruit.

Can I cough?

Loquat taste is delicious, but the purpose of eating loquats is because they heard that it has the effect of relieving cough and phlegm.Most people’s impressions of the coriander should also be on "Chuanbei Tonghua", so it is more firm to eat cough.

In fact, the "Chuanbei Cream" is used by the leaf leaf instead of the fruits, so it does not mean that eating loquat can also relieve cough [1].Animal experiments with mice show that loquat leaf contains triangular acid compounds, which has anti -inflammatory and cough effects.[2]

In addition to loquat leaves, studies also show that loquat flowers also have a certain effect on cough.The research is also an animal experiment based on mice as the object. As a result, the alcohol-litter of the lameness can relieve cough and expectorant, and its mechanism may achieve a cough effect by reducing the C-fiber release P substance.[3]
