Here’s an interesting article titled, Breathe Easy During Your Workout with Vitamin C. The author cites BMJ research supporting the use of vitamin C and exercise (done properly) to improve management of exercise-induced asthma.
This information is particularly relevant to me, as I have two daughters — both athletes — who use an inhaler for exercise-induced asthma.
The article defines exercise-induced asthma, its symptoms, and describes conditions that my exacerbate the condition.
Vitamin C deficiency is believed to stimulate the release of inflammatory mediators that may be involved in exercise-induced asthma.
Vitamin C supplementation is low-cost and safe, and may provide relief of asthma-related symptoms for physically fit people when exercising.
The author also discusses strategies for helping individuals with exercise-induced asthma better manage the exercise process.
