Grape seed extract shown to help alleviate asthma symptoms
Living with a chronic respiratory disease can be difficult, but the good news is that if you're one of the approximately 25 million individuals in the United States who suffers from asthma, there are a number of different treatments you can try to alleviate your symptoms. According to EmaxHealth, an independent online health resource, grape seed extract supplements are a natural way to treat asthma that have been found to "decrease airway inflammation and increase immunity" in test subjects.
"Scientific studies now show that grape seed extract significantly improves lung function, increases lung capacity and reduces asthma symptoms," states the source. "This is thought to be due to its ability to lower leukotriene levels in our bodies. Leukotriene is the substance that is produced in response to inflammation. Grape seed extract therefore targets the cause of the symptoms and not suppressing them."
Grape seed extract supplements could be a great alternative to more traditional medications for some patients, as they are known to have fewer side effects. However, as with any kind of treatment, asthma sufferers are encouraged to consult their physicians before they make any changes to their daily routines.
There are other simple ways you can combat asthma and allergy symptoms, such as investing in an allergen air purifier or hypoallergenic bedding for your home. These effective items work by significantly reducing your exposure to household irritants that exacerbate symptoms and effect your quality of life.
