Astaxanthin for Asthma

Inflammation can lead to asthma by causing the inner lining of the airways to swell, which produces mucus. It makes the airways more sensitive to asthma triggers. Anti Inflammatory pharmaceutical medicines are prescribed by doctors to stop this process and prevent asthma attacks; however, these medicines have side effects.

Astaxanthin has the ability to target inflammation naturally and without serious side effects and has been successfully used in the reduction of inflammation in the treatment of asthma.

A study published in the National Institute of Health in 2007 claims that the role of nutrition on asthma has an important place in the management of the disease.

“Evidence suggests that inflammation exists in asthma sufferers as well as high levels of damaged cells and free radicals. In order to combat free radicals and damaged (oxidised cells) a sufferer should increase their intake of anti-oxidants which can cancel out the imbalance.

In the lung, antioxidant vitamins modulate the development of asthma and the impairment of pulmonary function. Dietary studies suggest relations between oxidative stress, bronchial inflammation, development of asthmatic symptoms, and reduction of cellular functions. Dietary interventions may reduce oxidant stress and prevent or minimize asthmatic symptoms. Such interventions may provide a cost-effective approach to asthma management that may supplement current pharmacological strategies”

Is Astaxanthin Safe?

The safety of astaxanthin administered orally was assessed in a medical trial undertaken in healthy adults. Volunteers were administered astaxanthin or placebo for eight-weeks. The authors concluded that healthy adults could safely consume natural astaxanthin.

In another study, high concentrations of astaxanthin were tested with blood taken from volunteers, 8 of whom were taking aspirin and 12 who were not. Even medical grade concentrations of astaxanthin had no adverse effects.

No significant side effects have been reported so far in published human studies in which astaxanthin was administered to humans.
