Powdered turmeric may help with asthma control in children, suggests a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase II clinical trial from Brazil.
There is now abundant evidence that micronutrient-based approaches are effective in the prevention and control of asthma. For example, recent research has shown that asthma patients taking vitamin D supplements can halve their risk of suffering a severe attack. Other research shows that children having more omega-3 fatty acids in their diets experience fewer asthma symptoms triggered by indoor air pollution.
As always, however, for the most effective response, the best results come when patients use a synergistic combination of micronutrients. A clinical pilot trial conducted by researchers at the Dr. Rath Research Institute illustrates this finding. After patients were given a specific combination of micronutrients for a period of three months, they all experienced an increased lung capacity. Impressively, many patients recorded a lung capacity that was almost double the reading they had at the start of the trial.
