Vitamin D for Asthma

If you are an asthma sufferer, go outside!  Research has shown that vitamin D significantly helps in reducing the effects of asthma.  The vitamin D levels in your body influence lung function, bronchospasm, and therapeutic responses to steroids.  Continued research has shown that people with low vitamin D levels showed worse lung function and airway hyper-responsiveness, which are trademarks of asthma, than those with high levels of vitamin D.  Low levels of vitamin D have also been linked to the production of a pro-inflammatory protein in the blood.[1]

Take in some of that sunshine!  You need minimum exposure of 30 minutes per day. Take oral vitamin D3 to make sure your blood reaches the therapeutic level of 50-70 ng/ml through your blood work if you have asthma.
