COPD vitamins and supplements

Prevent lung damage and slow down the progression of COPD with vitamins and supplements.

COPD, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a preventable spectrum of lung diseases, including chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Difficulty breathing, wheezing, respiratory infections, excessive mucus, low oxygen levels, and chronic coughing are the hallmarks of the disease. COPD is almost always caused by cigarette smoking, which currently accounts for 80-90% of all cases. Patients with COPD experience a decline in lung function over time, often have other conditions that go along with COPD (such as cardiovascular disease and depression), and are at an increased risk for disability and premature death. COPD is incurable, progressive, and debilitating. It is now the third leading cause of death in the United States, affecting over 30 million Americans last year.

Inflammation not only hurts, but it destroys tissues and causes disease. Learn how to avoid chronic inflammation with vitamins and supplements.

Inflammation is your body’s main defense mechanism, meant to anticipate, intercept and destroy invading microorganisms. Inflammation causes redness, swelling, heat and pain. Inflammation helps your immune system fight invaders and heal injuries, but can be dangerous if it becomes chronic.

Inflammation becomes a danger when it is brought on by malfunctions of the immune system. Autoimmune diseases and allergies are good examples. Out of the ten leading causes of death in the United States, chronic, low-level inflammation causes seven of them. This includes Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, nephritis, heart disease, cancer, stroke, and chronic lower respiratory disease.
