Vitamin C – Supplementation A Boon For Asthmatics

Increasing vitamin C intake could help people with severe asthma according to a recent study.// This is in support of the relationship between decreased intake of antioxidants such as vitamin C and incidence of asthma.

A study was conducted to examine the intakes and blood concentrations of antioxidants, including vitamin C, in patients with severe asthma, mild asthma and subjects without asthma.

Men with severe asthma had a particularly low intake of antioxidants. The blood concentrations of vitamin C were markedly lower in patients with severe asthma compared to subjects with mild asthma or those without asthma. The study also identified patients with severe asthma as being more overweight, with a higher intake of fat and a higher blood cholesterol concentration compared with the other subjects. In addition, lung function was better in subjects with high blood vitamin C and low blood cholesterol concentrations.

The study suggests that patients with severe asthma may benefit from an adequate intake of antioxidants such as vitamin C in their diet. If confirmed in future trials, taking supplements or vitamin-rich foods could be a relatively easy strategy to help decrease the morbidity and socioeconomic burden associated with severe asthma said the researchers.

Medindia on Asthma:

Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases in the world. Perhaps the most commonly discussed respiratory disease after the common cold. The word asthma is derived from a Greek work meaning 'breathlessness or panting" both of which accurately describe an attack of asthma.
