Adding fruits, vegetables and whole-grain cereals may help in reducing the symptoms of asthma.
According to sources, the study published in the European Respiratory Journal revealed that a healthy diet plays a significant role in managing asthma and its possible role in helping prevent the onset of asthma in adults.
“A healthy diet is mostly made up of a high intake of fruit, vegetables, and fibre. These have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and are elements in a healthy diet that potentially lower symptoms,” said lead researcher Roland Andrianasolo, from the University of Paris.
The results also showed that for men and women with asthma who adhered to healthy diets, the likelihood of poorly controlled symptoms was lower by 60 percent and 27 percent respectively.
