How To Use Lemon For Asthma

Use lemon to get relief from asthma.

Asthma is a chronic disease that makes breathing difficult for you. The airways in your lungs get affected when you suffer from asthma. Your inflamed airways become sensitive to certain things that you are exposed to in the environment. Various triggers will tighten the muscles around your airways. All these will make it hard for air to move in and out of the lungs. This will lead to wheezing, shortness of breath, or cough. Even though there are medicines to treat asthma, a few home remedies are found to be useful in managing and treating asthma so that you can live a normal life. Lemon is one among them.

Lemon is found to be productive in treating allergic asthma. The abundant vitamin C gives lemon its anti-asthmatic property. Being an antioxidant, it strengthens your immune system. It can also lower the production of inflammatory molecules that irritates the airways. It is found to be useful in fighting asthma triggers such as pollen, smoke, and dust mites. The antibacterial effect of lemon can also stop bacteria and viruses from triggering asthma attacks.
