Antioxidants to relieve asthma

Antioxidants to asthma

Free radicals play an important role in the induction of bronchoconstriction and elevated secretion of mucus in asthmatics.

For this reason, if you have asthma it is interesting to increase the use of antioxidants. Two antioxidants that are helpful in reducing the symptoms of asthma are selenium and glutathione.

Other antioxidants and minerals important for asthma are vitamin C, vitamin E, magnesium, vitamin B12, B6, quercetin

Vitamin C and asthma

Vitamin C is important in reducing the attacks of asthma. Is able to stop bronchial constriction and reduce histamine production and release. It also helps reduce histamine levels once it is released into the blood. So it may take 2000 mg to 4000 mg per day of vitamin C. The jacks are extended to 3 times daily with meals. Use Vitamin C Ester whether other vitamin C supplements give you stomach problems.

If you have diarrhea when taking vitamin C, reduce the amount of vitamin C until the diarrhea stops. This is a sign that does not assimilate as much vitamin C.

Vitamin E and Beta Carotene for Asthma

Taking antioxidant supplements is also ideal, as they help protect against free radical damage. Take 400 IU of vitamin E and 10,000 IU of beta-carotene. One study showed that pregnant women who were low in vitamin E had children who were more susceptible to asthma.

Take a magnesium supplement or foods such as whole grains. Can use 400 mg of magnesium aspartate twice daily.

Vitamin B12 and asthma

Vitamin B12 has been found essential to alleviate childhood asthma. In clinical trials, injections of 1.000 ug of vitamin B12 produced an improvement in asthma patients. The B12 is useful in people with sulfite sensitivity. Take capsules of vitamin B12 is helpful before any meal.

Vitamin B6 and asthma

Vitamin B6 has also been found useful in reducing the frequency and severity of asthma attacks and wheezing. Take a vitamin B complex, so you get all the vitamins B. Can take 50 mg of each twice daily.

Quercetin and asthma

Quercetin is a flavonoid. A flavonoid is the chemical of fruits and vegetables that gives them their color. Quercetin has a high activity against asthma. Making quercetin is blocking the release of histamine. When this is done, it substantially reduces irritation and inflammation when the body reacts to allergens.

In addition, quercetin block another inflammatory substance called leukotrienes. This substance is a thousand times more powerful and damaging than histamine.

Since the body does not readily absorb quercetin, it is best taken with bromelain to improve absorption. You can use the following combination: quercetin - bromelain twice daily to 300 mg.

The N-acetylcysteine ​​and asthma

The N-acetylcysteine ​​is another nutrient that has powerful antioxidant properties and replace diseased cells and healthy new ones. Helps produce glutathione in the liver and strengthens the immune system action.

The N-acetylcysteine ​​helps control mucous and this is another great benefit for people with asthma. It is recommended that you take the N-acetylcysteine ​​twice daily to 500 mg. Since this is an amino acid not in use for over a month. After that, if you want to continue using it is better to take a balanced amino acid complex. Amino acids should be taken in a balanced formula.

As you can see asthma taking a high potency antioxidant formula supplement is very interesting. If you can not find this formula will then have to take individual nutrients to ensure that controls their asthma.
