Action
Summary of Asthma and Allergy Management: A disease of the lungs in which the airways become blocked or narrowed causing breathing difficulty.
Asthma is closely related to respiratory allergies such as sinus congestion, runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes, nose and throat, watery eyes, coughing and post natal drip.
Clinical studies have shown that people with asthma produces excessive amount of leukotrienes. Leukotrienes promotes lung inflammation and can lead to air way constriction, mucus production and bronchial inflammation.
For the management of allergic diseases, it is important to reduce or normalize the levels of leukotrienes in the body.
Over 15 years of clinical studies conducted shows that consumption of the correct amounts and ratio of the essential fatty acids gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and eicosap entaenoic acid (EPA) can help inhibit leukotriene production. (Juniper et al, 2000.)
A normal diet does not supply enough GLA & EPA to meet the needs of persons with allergy or asthma, who due to their condition, require more of these fatty acids than healthy persons.
