In Germany, about eight million people suffer from asthma. Vital substance expert Natura Vitalis has created "Lunge", a special product to positively support the health of this important organ.

Shortness of breath, wheezing cough, tightness in the chest area. All of these symptoms can indicate an asthma attack, in which the muscles of the airways swell, narrowing the bronchial tubes. In severe cases of asthma, there may even be anxiety, sweating, blue lips and an increased pulse. In Germany, about ten to 15 percent of children and about five to seven percent of adults suffer from asthma - that is about eight million people.

"The cause of such an attack is in most cases an imbalance of the immune system. Whereas in healthy people, inflammations are useful defence reactions of the body, which can be triggered by various stimuli - such as bacteria or toxins. For asthma patients, however, this mechanism can have fatal consequences. Their inflammatory swelling of the airways can have various triggers," says Natura Vitalis founder Frank Felte (www.naturavitalis.de). The company from Essen has long been considered one of the leading manufacturers of natural food supplements and places the highest value on continuous further and new developments of health products on a scientific basis. 

For example, animal hair, dust or smoke that is inhaled can be responsible for it; a drug intolerance, infections or psychological stress can also provoke the attack. In addition to medications that inhibit the body's excessive immune response and are taken either prophylactically or as needed, there are also a number of natural and holistic ways to get the respiratory disease under control.

The intestine plays a major role in this, emphasises Frank Felte, as this is where the majority of our immune system is located. "Asthmatics usually suffer from so-called dysbacteria, damage to the intestinal flora, which can be caused, for example, by taking antibiotics or by an over-acidification of the body. Those who want to eliminate asthma naturally should therefore ensure a stable and healthy intestinal situation. The basis for this is best created with an extensive intestinal cleansing. In conjunction with building up the intestinal flora with probiotics, it is an important step in bringing the immune system back into balance."

An alkaline diet with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables is recommended. In addition, long-chain omega-3 fatty acids help restore gut health. If the gut is healthy, an anti-inflammatory diet can take the strain off the immune system in asthma and help to strengthen the body's defences. Red onion and garlic, for example, contain many sulphur compounds and antioxidant flavonoids, some of which are said to inhibit inflammatory hormones. Anti-inflammatory spices and herbs - turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, rosemary, oregano - can also relieve asthma. It has also been proven that vitamin D deficiency can also lead to asthma, which may be related to the accompanying poorer lung function. This is supported by the fact that asthma usually worsens during the winter season - precisely the time of year when there is the least sunlight. In addition to the vital substances that should be supplied to the body, there are also foods that should be avoided in order not to put unnecessary strain on the immune system. These include, above all, industrially processed foods as well as dairy and gluten-containing cereal products.

With "Lunge", Natura Vitalis has created a globally unique recipe to positively support the health of this important organ (https://www.naturavitalis.de/Lunge.html). The product contains mullein, elecampane, sage and coltsfoot, among others. "These are plants that have been used since ancient times for lung ailments, mucousy airways, chronic bronchitis, asthma and irritable coughs. Furthermore, mullein is believed to be effective against inflammation and combines certain antibacterial and antiviral effects," says Frank Felte.
