Breathe Easier With C!

January 23, 2015

For the exercise enthusiasts out there who experience exercise induced asthma, there is hope! According to Dr. Harri Hemila, the author of a study in BMJ Open, if you typically feel your airways tighten during your long runs or spinning classes, taking a 1,000-milligram vitamin C supplement an hour to two before working out, can help ease the tightening and keep airways relaxed and open. Always seek the advice of your personal physician if symptoms persist or before beginning any new exercise routine("Women's Health", December 2013).
