VITAMIN D SUGGESTS A LINK TO IMPROVED
ASTHMA SYMPTOM CONTROL IN TEST SUBJECTS
LOOKING TO BREATHE FREE? A HUMBLE VITAMIN MAY BE COMING TO YOUR RESCUE. Recently, an meta-analysis of nine different studies involving double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical tests measuring the efficacy of Vitamin D in modulating asthma exacerbation risk and symptom control yielded some surprising results.
The impetus for the studies was based on anecdotal observations of an unusual correlation between high risk of asthma attacks/symptoms and low blood levels of Vitamin D. In the consequent investigations, study duration ranged from four to twelve months and the majority of the subjects had mild or moderate asthma.
