4 Natural Anti-Asthma Foods That Work

There still might not be a final, perfect cure for asthma, but there are many ways to have relief from its symptoms. Your best bet is a combination of medicine and nutrition. I've always believed that asthma is something you don't mess around with.  As an asthma sufferer myself, I can tell you that no amount of herbal remedies can achieve immediate relief as powerfully as prescription medications. So as far as the medical approach goes, yes, you can buy Canadian Singulair and other medicines to bring asthma symptoms like wheezing, shortness of breath and chest tightness under control, or prevent them altogether. 

I am also a firm believer in prevention. And there are many natural, organic foods that help with the long-term relief of these symptoms. In the following article we discuss a few such anti-asthma super foods that give great results when consumed...

1. Avocado
Avocados are rich in glutathione, which is known to detoxify any foreign substances like pollutants and also offers protection to cells against “free radical damage”. Without the presence of glutathione, the other antioxidants won’t be able to function properly/efficiently. 
Not only this, avocados are also a nice vitamin E source, especially for asthma sufferers whose condition is linked to one of the many nut allergies (since nuts happen to be one of the most popular/common vitamin E sources. However, if you have latex allergy, then you should be careful with avocados, especially ones that are not organically grown. The reason for this being simple: avocados may contain chitinases, substances which may cause an allergic reaction. 

2. Broccoli Sprouts
Broccoli sprouts are full of valuable nutrition and make a great addition to your regular diet if you’re suffering from asthma. Studies show that eating broccoli for three days can increase antioxidant compounds in your body, which control the inflammation of the airway. So the more broccoli sprouts, the bigger the increase of these antioxidant compounds. You’ll find that broccoli sprouts are available at most grocery stores and health food stores. They also make a good addition to soups, salads, sandwiches, etc.

3. Apples
Research says that apples have some really extraordinary type properties that can help in fighting against asthma. One of the studies conducted discovered that pregnant women who added apples to their diet offered protection to the child against asthma. What’s more, it was also found that children who drink apple juice on a regular basis have a 50% lesser chance of developing wheezing.  So how do apples have these beneficial effects? It could be because of the fruit’s high concentration of vital bioflavonoids like quercetin, which is known to have strong antioxidant, anti-histamine and other anti-inflammatory properties. However, when purchasing apples, see to it that you buy organically grown fruit.

4: Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes are not only the oldest vegetables that we know of, but are also high in nutrition. It’s been noticed that sweet potatoes are the kind of food that has a very low chance of causing any allergic reaction. In addition to that, sweet potatoes are rich in potassium and vitamin C along with unique root-proteins which is known to have antioxidant properties that help in working against asthma. The orange, yellow and pink varieties of sweet potato are also a good concentrated food source of important vitamin beta-carotene. The more strong the potato’s color, the more amount of beta-carotene.Again, the best treatment and prevention for asthma is a combination of prescription medication and healthy, nutritional living. The superfoods above make a good list to help you re-imagine you daily diet.

  1. Nice sharing indeed! I used to have childhood asthma & thankfully, it went off when I was in secondary school. It was such a painful childhood as I was always missing school & going in & out of hospital. There're so many types of medicine & devices such as inhaler to aid the asthmatics unlike those days :< Glad it's over for me...
