Vitamin D could help fight asthma

Recommended Posts

Vitamin D supplements could be beneficial to those suffering from asthma, researchers at King’s College London have found.

The Vitamin helps lower the body’s production of the natural chemical IL -17A, which is produced to fight infections but known to exacerbate asthma.

The researchers believe this could provide a viable alternative to treatment with steroids, which can be problematic to asthma sufferers.

I take a vitamin d supplement daily and I do have asthma and now after reading that I believe there is something to it as I don’t take my rescue inhaler much at all, I don’t get cold air induced or exercise induced anymore I take it once in a blue moon in bed at night.
