What should you eat to prevent asthma?

Asthma is a disease involving your lungs. It impedes normal breathing, which is why it poses a threat to most people who suffer from it. The most alarming situation is especially during testing times, such as COVID-19, that primarily targets your airways alongside other symptoms. Normal respiration includes uninterrupted access to and from your lungs. At the same time, asthma is caused by inflammation of your airways. So the patient experiences are coughing, wheezing, or shortness of breath.

We must teach day-to-day habits that serve us in preventing asthma. One of the most critical factors in that regard is eating. Our food makes the bulk of our routine, so investing in clean eating is beneficial in multiple ways. Today we will explore all the food options that help serve this purpose:

Flax Seeds

Flax seeds are considered anti-inflammatory with their richness of omega-3 fatty acids and magnesium. They are considered beneficial as magnesium eases the muscles surrounding the bronchi, which, otherwise, is regarded as a trigger for asthma.

Flax seeds can be taken as it is or in-ground form to be sprinkled on smoothies, salads or cereals.


Apples are considered natures bounty when it comes to protection against asthma. According to a study, apples had a shielding effect against asthma in expectant mothers and an overall beneficial aspect for people suffering from this condition. Ingredients, including flavinoids, are related to opening up airways, which aid in asthma.

Eating two to four apples a week can have a multitude of health benefits. The most important is the prevention of asthma.


A healthy digestive tract means having the beneficial flora thrive inside it. They help in reducing the incidence of inflammatory diseases like asthma, as cited in a review article.

Beans have prebiotics which are dietary fibers that act as food for the good gut bacteria.

It is recommended to have at least half a cup of beans each day to see a marked difference in your overall condition.


Ginger is regarded as a benefactor in alleviating asthma symptoms. This was published in a study that stated that ginger has an active ingredient that relaxes the airways, which then eases any underlying asthma symptoms.

It is preferable to incorporate ginger in your diet by adding the ginger root to your vegetables or eating it with rice.


Carrots contain beta-carotene, which is an anti-oxidant that is then converted to vitamin A inside your body. It reduces the chances of contracting exercise-induced asthma. Beta-carotene is found not only in carrots but also in green peppers and sweet potatoes.

Carrots can be eaten as it is or added to stir-fried vegetables or salads to enrich the taste and obtain health benefits.


Caffeine is considered a favorable option when it comes to asthma. It is said that caffeine improves airway function upto four hours after its consumption. This is because it is a bronchodilator and relaxes the airways. The same effect is recorded with black tea.


Avocados are suitable for various health-related issues. They are nutrient-rich, which helps with improving your overall well-being. Again, having anti-oxidants, especially glutathione, poses a shielding effect against free radicals. They also contain monounsaturated fat that aids in lowering cholesterol.

Avocados can be added to salads or popularly spread on toast for a winning breakfast meal.


To further dive into anti-oxidants, tomatoes are enriched with them, which makes it an asthma-friendly food. It is also low in calories and helps ease the airways.

Tomatoes can be consumed as part of your salad or juiced to make a delicious drink.

All the foods mentioned above are asthma-friendly and healthy, which will help your breathing and improve your overall well-being.


We just completed a very large Homeopathic tablet order that required involvement from 4 different facilities. There was nobody else in the country that was willing to help us that we called until we found superior. First shipment came last week and we couldn’t be happier or more impressed with the team. Thank you Justine, Phil, Stephenie you are the best!

I was choosing between two companies to create a formulation, and it came down to their level of service, expertise and confidence in their ability to execute. After speaking to Phil, their lead guy who knows all things supplements and is very easy to communicate with, was enthusiastic and helped to create a strategy to see my vision through. The last thing you want is a transactional relationship in this industry, so whether you’re a first timer or a veteran, these guys know how to add value no matter what level you’re at. Highly recommend Superior and their team to get the job done.
When they say “Superior” they aren’t kidding. Of over 100 companies on our NSF list that we called, and over 20 that we talked to, Superior was the ONLY one that consistently answered their phones, worked incredibly diligently to problem solve and R&D an incredibly complex patented proprietary product, and consistently was two or three steps ahead of us, the landscape and their competitors. Looking forward to a long relationship Superior!
We’ve been using Superior for over 5 years. We came to them because our last manufacturer stopped making the capsule size I needed. I looked everywhere for a replacement. Luckily, I found Superior. They quoted me a fair price and sourced a hard to find ingredient quickly. In the 5 years we’ve had them make our product, which is a custom formulation, they have never delivered late once. Quality control is very high and I get constant updates from Phil our point person while it is being manufactured. I cannot recommend them enough.
Our previous manufacturer was 3 months late on a production and barely spoke with us. We have run many runs with Superior and as with all manufacturing, there was an order that was a little late because of poor crop growth. Not only did they warn us ahead of time they showed us the list of suppliers they were calling day and night to try to find replacement material. Best company ever!
Jake, Justine and Phil are just a few of the team members we have had the pleasure of working with at Superior. As a marketing agency working in the supplement industry, we work with many suppliers on behalf of our clients. I especially appreciate Superior Supplements Manufacturing because of their dedication to customer relationships. They go to extreme measures to ensure quality ingredients, fair pricing and great turn around times. The staff is also extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this team.
