Taking regular probiotic supplements can help reduce the symptoms of asthma
May is Asthma Awareness Month. Asthma is a debilitating and often life-threatening condition, affecting one in 12 people in the US – that's 25 million. At least half of them had an attack of asthma in the last year and what many don't realise is that a high proportion of those attacks could have been prevented with the right management plan. And that management plan should include probiotic supplements.
Probiotics are the trillions of bacteria that reside in the human gut and are responsible for aiding digestion and absorption of nutrients and preventing harmful toxins from entering the body. Probiotic supplements consist of live bacteria that help restore depleted levels of natural probiotics.
‘The use of probiotics has been associated with a decrease in the frequency and severity of asthma symptoms,' MightySupp CEO Aaron Parker said. ‘The evidence is mainly anecdotal at present due to the lack of studies in this area, but as 60 to 70% of our immune system is located in the gut, scientists have acknowledged the close relationship between our levels of probiotics and the occurrence of allergic diseases such as asthma, hay fever and eczema.'
The efficacy of our natural probiotics is affected by many factors, including heredity, pollution, diet, stress, and lack of sleep, to name a few. In modern society most people are affected by at least some of these factors and consequently do not have sufficient levels of probiotics for optimum good health. For asthmatics this is an issue, as they need probiotics to fight off the allergens that trigger their illness.
Here are 3 ways in which the use of probiotic supplements can decrease the symptoms of asthma;
INCREASE INTESTINAL STRENGTH: When harmful organisms (including triggers for your asthma) penetrate your intestinal wall and enter your blood stream, your immune system invokes an allergic response, in the form of histamine production, to eradicate the invaders. This causes the symptoms of asthma. Probiotics increase your intestinal wall strength and permeability to help prevent this.
DECREASE THE LEVEL OF TOXINS: Because strong probiotic colonies help repel harmful organisms, you have fewer toxins in your system. Consequently, the probiotics are not overloaded and are able to focus on their job of repelling those toxins they encounter, and to do it more effectively.
COMBAT THE EFFECTS OF MEDICATION: Many types of medication, including steroids which are commonly prescribed for asthma, strip the body of much of its good bacteria, resulting in a bacterial imbalance which can leave you susceptible to more illness later. Probiotic supplements will restore the levels of good bacteria and help you recover more quickly.
‘It's important to remember that probiotics are not a cure,' Mr Parker said. ‘They should always be taken in conjunction with your medication and as advised by the manufacturer or your doctor or health professional.'
