Vitamin D3 Can Alleviate Asthma Symptoms


“A team of researchers from the Department of Molecular Pneumology at University Hospital Erlangen in Germany has demonstrated for the first time how taking vitamin D3 can alter the cellular inflammatory reaction in allergic asthma and alleviate asthma symptoms.”


Previous research has demonstrated that taking vitamin D supplements can reduce the risk of asthma attacks requiring treatment with corticosteroids. Significantly, therefore, reflecting Dr. Rath’s revolutionary Cellular Medicine concept, children with asthma have been shown to have lower levels of vitamin D than healthy children. Other micronutrients that have been shown to be effective in helping to prevent and improve asthma include zinc and vitamin A.

Researchers at the Dr. Rath Research Institute have investigated whether a specific mixture of micronutrients can affect the response of the human bronchial smooth muscle cells to different allergic stimuli such as histamine, bacterial proteins, and inflammatory chemicals. They observed that, in all cases, the micronutrient mixture significantly inhibited contraction of the smooth muscle cells. While the individual nutrients (including vitamin C, lysine, proline, and others) each helped relax the smooth muscle cells, when combined their effect was greater than that of any single component – thus demonstrating the superior effectiveness of the micronutrient synergy approach.

The Dr. Rath Research Institute has also conducted a small pilot clinical trial in asthma patients aged between 45 and 75 years old. These patients took a specific combination of micronutrients for a period of three months and were intermittently subjected to lung function tests. By the end of the three months all of the patients experienced an increased lung capacity, with many of them recording a lung capacity that had almost doubled compared to their values before starting the trial.
