Here are some best foods and health tips for asthma patients.
1.Fruits: Fruits contain a lot of antioxidants and beta carotene. Research has shown that children who ate a lot of fruits throughout their childhood had a lower risk of developing asthma later in life.
2.Fruits with a high content of Vitamin C and E, such as kiwi, oranges, etc., reduce lung swelling and inflammation.
3.Increase the intake of green leafy vegetables: Fresh vegetables make a good diet for asthma patients. They contain a high amount of Vitamins and flavonoids which destroy the free radicals in the body. Free radicals are the toxins in the body that aggravate asthmatic conditions.
4.Vitamin D: It is found that people with asthma usually have low Vitamin D levels. So, milk, eggs, fish, such as salmon, should be part of the regular diet of asthma patients.
5.Spending time under the sun for a few minutes can increase the level of Vitamin D which in turn has a good effect on asthmatics.
6.Maintain a healthy weight: Obesity and asthma attacks have a direct link. It is found that attacks of asthma significantly reduce when the patient maintains a healthy and normal weight. The frequency of asthma increases with weight gain.
Foods to be Avoided in Asthma:
1.Reduce salt intake: High intake of salt is known to increase asthma attacks in children. So, as far as possible, children should be discouraged to eat packed salty snacks and packaged foods. Moreover, research has shown that the reduction in the intake of salt has a positive effect on exercise-induced asthma.
2.Monosodium glutamate (MSG): This is found in several Chinese foods and packaged and processed foods. MSG is known to trigger asthma attacks. So, it should be kept at bay.
3.Sulfites: Sulfites are used as preservatives. They are known to aggravate asthma. Sulfites are found in wine, dried foods, pickles, frozen shrimps, and even in fresh shrimps. So, these food items should be avoided by asthmatics.
4.Any foods that you are allergic to: If you are allergic to certain foods, it is better to avoid having them when you happen to suffer from asthma. The foods which you are allergic to play an active role in triggering your attacks of asthma. For instance, if you are allergic to shellfish, it is better to avoid it if you have asthma. So, avoid those foods you are allergic to and also foods that are cross-contaminated by them.
