Your respiratory system is constantly working. All day, every day, it is the means for oxygen to enter your body. Unfortunately, it can also be an entry point for pollutants, irritants, pollen, dust, mold, fungus and other toxins. The constant assault from impurities can take its toll. For many adults and children, taking
a deep breath of air can be a struggle.
With the rise of environmental toxins and other irritants in the air we breathe, many people are dealing with poor lung and respiratory health. An unhealthy respiratory system deprives the body of the most important nutrient of all – oxygen. Organs and tissues cannot function properly without adequate amounts of oxygen and increases the need for a strong, healthy immune system.
ANTIOXIDANTS AND OTHER NUTRIENTS
To work at peak capacity, the lungs need to be clean and clear from pollutants that are inhaled daily. The lung tissues and the tubes within them also need to remain elastic and spongy in order to work properly. The elasticity of the lungs, the bronchi and the bronchioles allows air to pass through easily and fully.
Antioxidants are the lungs’ first line of defense against free radicals. Maintaining a healthy antioxidant supply can help protect your lungs from damage and detoxify air pollution and toxins.
High in antioxidants: bromelain, orange peel, rosemary, fenugreek, stinging nettle, thyme, acerola cherry
Vitamin C is the most important water soluble antioxidant found in the respiratory system. Vitamin C works by protecting the airways against the effects of irritants like sulfur oxides from factories, pollen, cigarette smoke and pathogens.
These substances cause increased oxidative stress which can lead to a narrowing of the airways. High in vitamin C: rosemary, thyme
Vitamin B6 is another nutrient that is beneficial for those dealing with lung health issues. Vitamin B6 supplementation supports overall lung function and decreases the severity of wheezing and chest tightness even if no deficiency is apparent. High in vitamin B6: rosemary, thyme
Magnesium is critically important to the contraction/relaxation state of smooth muscle. Higher magnesium levels promote relaxation. Because the muscles of the respiratory system impact how the lungs expand and the capacity to trap air, it is important to provide these muscles with adequate amounts of magnesium. Dietary magnesium intake is directly related to lung function and the occurrence of airway hyperactivity
and wheezing. High in magnesium: rosemary, thyme, fenugreek.
