In some people, asthma symptoms can be triggered by ingesting sulfites, a food additive. Pretreatment with a large amount of vitamin B12 reduced some children's asthmatic reaction to sulfites in one trial.
A thymus extract known as thymomodulin has been shown to improve the symptoms and course of asthma, presumably as the result of restoration of proper immune function control.
Quercetin, a flavonoid found in many plants, has an inhibiting action on lipoxygenase, an enzyme that contributes to problems with asthma.
Onion may act as an anti-inflammatory in people with asthma.
Mullein, which has a soothing effect on bronchioles, has traditionally been used for asthma.
The trace mineral molybdenum helps the body detoxify sulfites, which can trigger asthma attacks.
Marshmallow, which has a soothing effect on bronchioles, has traditionally been used for asthma.
Lobelia has been used traditionally to treat coughs and spasms in the lungs from all kinds of causes.
Licorice, which has a soothing effect on bronchioles, has traditionally been used for asthma.
In a double-blind trial, supplementing with L-carnitine improved lung function and overall asthma control, compared with a placebo, in children with asthma.
Hyssop, which has a soothing effect on bronchioles, has traditionally been used for asthma.
Supplementing with the herb Ginkgo biloba may improve asthma, as its extracts block the action of a compound that contributes to asthma symptoms.
Elecampane has been used traditionally to treat coughs associated with asthma.
50 to 100 mg of an extract standardized to 18% forskolin, taken two to three times per day. One trial found that a constituent of coleus, called forskolin, when inhaled, could decrease lung spasms in asthmatics.
Bromelain reduces the thickness of mucus, which may be beneficial for people with asthma.
Used under medical supervision, betaine HCl may help restore stomach acid levels and improve asthma symptoms.
1,200 IU per day for 15 to 17 weeks. A study of Japanese children found that daily supplementation with vitamin D during the winter months significantly reduced the amount of times the children experienced asthma attacks.
1,000 to 1,500 mg daily. Supplementing with vitamin C reduces the tendency of the bronchial passages to go into spasm, an action that has been confirmed in double-blind research.
100 to 200 mg daily. Vitamin B6 deficiency is common in asthmatics. Supplementing with the vitamin may decrease the frequency and severity of asthma attacks.
150 to 400 mg daily of powdered leaf. Tylophora has been shown to benefit people with asthma in a variety of ways, including relieving asthma symptoms, increasing the lungs' capacity for oxygen, and reducing nighttime shortness of breath.
100 mcg daily. Asthma involves free-radical damage that selenium might protect against. In one trial, supplementing with sodium selenite (a form of selenium) improved symptoms in some patients.
1 mg per pound of body weight per day, in two divided doses. In one trial, supplementing with Pycnogenol improved lung function and asthma symptoms and reduced the need for rescue medication in children with asthma.
400 to 1,500 mg of powdered root per day. Two preliminary trials have shown picrorhiza to improve asthma symptoms.
300 to 400 mg daily. People with asthma frequently have low magnesium levels. Supplementing with the mineral might help prevent asthma attacks because magnesium can prevent bronchial spasms.
30 mg daily. Lycopene, an antioxidant found in tomatoes, helps reduce exercise-related asthma attacks.
25 drops of a leaf extract twice per day. A study involving children with bronchial asthma suggested that ivy leaf was effective in increasing the amount of oxygen in the lungs.
500 mg three times per day. Animal studies have found that extracts of holy basil help keep the bronchial airway passages clear. In two trials, asthma patients who took holy basil had better breathing function and fewer attacks.
50 mg of omega-3 fatty acids twice per day. In a study of people with asthma, supplementing with a proprietary extract of New Zealand green-lipped mussel (Lyprinol) significantly decreased wheezing and improved airflow.
Consult a doctor. Research shows that fish oil partially reduces reactions to allergens that can trigger asthma attacks. It has also been shown in one study to prevent exercise-induced asthma attacks.
Adults: 50 mg three times per day for adults; children: 50 to150 mg per day, depending on body size. Studies show, asthma patients taking inhaled steroids who also took butterbur extract saw significant improvement in airflow.
300 mg three times per day of a resin extract. In one trial, people with acute bronchial asthma who took powdered boswellia resin extract had significantly fewer asthma attacks and improved measurements of breathing capacity.
64 mg a day of natural supplement. Some researchers have suggested that exercise-related asthma attacks might be caused by free-radical damage caused by the exercise. Supplementing with beta-carotene, an antioxidant, protects against free-radical damage and may prevent these attacks.
250 to 500 mg twice per day. Amrita Bindu is an Ayurvedic herbal preparation shown to have antioxidant activity. Studies show, some children with severe asthma who received amrita bindu were able to stop their asthma medications and were no longer having asthma attacks.
